New Image Effects
Deepsky Fog system
Added ingame front switching between Verdun and Tannenberg.

Added 1p gas choking animation
Adjusted default controls:
Prone F -> Left Ctrl
Melee V -> F
Use B -> E
Voice Chat E -> Left Alt
Added match end game camera animations
Always full accuracy through ironsights. With some weapons, especially pistols, accuracy wasn't always 100% when sighting. On longer distances this resulted in quite some deviation.
Better out of the box controller support
Adjusted weapon values according to https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/194f3UsP6uosJqZQKTJpAUotL9Qb1e2xI...

Both melee and ranged: Lower strength, Quicker centertime
Ranged: You can now only get so much flinches in a certain timeframe
Melee suppression: Bayonets and flamethrower cause less flinch
Added recoil kick to LMGs
Highered default terrain detail on Low Terrain quality so it is more accurate(Fixes people hiding in terrain or people actually being behind terrain althogh you don't see a terrain)

Fixed matchmaking bug: Lobby squads from 'Create squad' will now always try to join the room with most players
Slightly longer grenade throw time so animation doesn't look that frantic
Added Resolution Scale: Renders the game at a fixed resolution relative to the screen resolution. Higher than 100% means more detail, less aliasing. Lower than 100% is could give performance gain on some machines at the cost of resolution.
Graphics options: windowed mode, resolution and refresh rate now always matches the actual used values. Refresh rate is also no longer visible in windowed mode, because it's only used in full screen

When "Always show tactical view" is disabled, pressing the tactical view button will no longer open the view while chatting or changing squad name
3p reload animation matches 1p animation more closely
