Tons of Guns 1.8 Update

G’day Forts Fans! Another update comin’atcha! In an effort to support the growing mod community, we’ve made several fixes and improvements in this area. Most importantly we have added the ability to share new environments through the Steam Workshop. As a demonstration [DEV] BeeMan has used his awesome programmer art skills to make an environment for Mars, and a map to use it called Mars One 3v3. We’ll be updating the modding guide shortly with details about how to create new environments.
