Version 1.9

Introduction
It has been quite a while since the last update, but it's finally here, version 1.9!
Sorry it's been a while, but updates should be getting more regular again now.





Main additions
- Water stands can now be found outside the police departments, for a nice refreshing cool-down after a long day of chasing criminals. These stands can also be robbed.
- You can now remove and sell vehicle mods at a gas station checkpoint.
- You can now disable tazer equip/holster for double-clicking RMB in /settings -> Game settings -> Gameplay settings -> Double aim tazer shortcut.
- Added 6 new robbery hideout locations: Fern Ridge (LS), Hilltop Farm (LS), Ocean Docks (LS), Fallen Tree (SF), Bayside (LV), Arco Del Oeste (LV)
- You can now select your favourite robbery hideout for each city with /favhideout.
- Roadblock objects (/rb) now shown in a model menu to allow previewing before selection.
- A red 'SUSPECT INSIDE' label will now show at the entrance to interiors if there are suspects inside.

Other additions
- Added /thealth, short for /tirehealth.
- Shooting boomboxes is now a ticketable crime for destruction of property.
- Added $cply and $cplayer quickstrings for closest player to you.
- /loc(ate) will now show distance/direction to interior entrances if the player is inside an interior, and vice-versa.
- /loc(ate) will also inform you if the player you are locating isn't spawned.

- Added /rbcheck to check who placed a roadblock.
- Added help text when given sprunk/beer/wine on how to drink it.





Main changes
- Sniper and country rifle sway intensity is now based on skill level. It is now stronger (more sway) at POOR skill level, the same at GOOD skill level, and completely gone at PROFESSIONAL skill level.
- Sniper damage has been nerfed slightly, and instant-kill headshot removed.
- Increased player slots back to 150.

- Many cop job events and impound bonuses for stolen vehicles have been increased.
- Slight buff to AK-47 damage.
- The yellow police tape roadblock object has been removed. It's completely solid and too easy for cops to block a suspect's path with.

- Properties can now be sold for $10m more than the value of the property (was $1m more).
- Passengers are now ejected from a vehicle if they are in drive-by mode and the vehicle does not have a drvier.
- Cops can now go down into the bank vault if there is a suspect down there.
- When a suspect breaks free from cuffs, other nearby cops (in addition to the one cuffing the suspect) are also 'stunned' for a second, to prevent instant re-cuffing by a nearby cop.
- Stores now reset after 1 minute after a robbery rather than 2 minutes.
- Robbery hideout menu has been re-ordered to group cities together.
- Vehicle boot/trunk now auto-closes when entering vehicle as a driver if the boot/truck contains stolen items.
- Entering a non-legitimately-bought personal vehicle (no paperwork) no longer shows 'vehicle unlocked' (it's not locked in the first place).
- Country rifle bolt-action reload animation between shots is now much shorter.
