    Big CS:GO Update Replaces Character and Weapon Animations - August 15, 2015

    A big update was released this evening for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Tonight's update completely replaces all character animations and world model weapon animations among many other improvements. Also of note is the fact that there is now dynamic player culling to prevent players and weapon models from sticking through walls.

    • Replaced all player body animations (Existing character models retained for demo compatibility)
    • Replaced all world model weapon animation

    • Re-rigged all player model geometry and player scaffold animation
    • Updated animation networking to continually synchronize animation state instead of periodically latching

    • Added new player states including bomb defusal and ladder climb poses
    • Added thirdperson weapon deploy animations to more accurately represent viewmodel deploy state
    • Extended all vertical aim matrix ranges to encompass the majority of vertical aim pitch so weapons line up precisely to firing angle

    • Added support for arbitrary numbers of articulated mechanical parts on world weapon models
    • Updated weapon world model articulation points, bodygroup presets, holster positions and reverse-bone-merge skeletons
    • Added physics motion to holstered attachment weapon locations

    I can now select my skin right? I need to be SAS or Arctic for every map! 😜 Looks like a cool update. I noticed that you mention August 15th for the changelog, not sure if that should be Sept or not.

    Fixed. Thanks!

    Edit: Now I need to figure out why attached images don't show properly on the main index replies...

    Edit 2: Whatever, it fixed itself now.

    Edit 3: It's broken again... WTF

    Edit 4: FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU... it "fixes" itself after an edit but if I refresh it's broken again?!

    I got excited at the title for new weapon animations, but it's player model not view model , ah well, any changes freshen up the game a bit.

    Due to a bug or oversight, they didn't totally ruin the M4A1S, because the mentioned armor penetration nerf didn't happen. Yet.
