  1. Just one of these sentimental posts I'd like to be able to reflect back on in a few years unless I die to covid-19. This time last year (and the years before) I was a terrible leader/community owner who wasn't very receptive to criticism, stuck in his ways, and not all that active. Around that time (and the years before) Garnet very very stagnant having had only 2 servers, being DarkRP and MilitaryRP, both of which were struggling to get past 60-80 players at certain times for nearly 6 years. It has gotten to a point where I spoke to players/friends who I considered close to me ab

  2. Event Server Launch January 31st, 2020 Thank you @shrimp and everybody involved! Frequently Asked Questions What is an event server and at what times does it operate? This is a secondary server that is supplementary to our main server. It will operate at varying hours depending on Game Masters' availability, and will be used for strict HEAVY roleplaying. NO point-and-click wars will occur here. What rank will I have on this server? In-character ranks will be directly linked to the main server. Whitelists carr

  3. Hello Garnet Gaming members, After being a community for a very extensive period of time, Proggy has brought it to my attention that our rules regarding racism are not at all where they should be, and while you may argue that some servers do not have rules against such things, and "FREEDOM OF SPEECH" I am in complete agreement with @proggy. We are going to be modifying our server rules across the board (DarkRP, MilitaryRP, Teamspeak, etc) to be more reflective of the new etiquette rules, effective starting June 1st. While our previous rules are generally as follows:

  4. Any of ya'll missed Taiga? ok Actual gamemode update (weapon balancing) and such is coming shortly after the map! General changes Gave optimization a go, wasn't too successful because I made the map feature better resolution textures and a 3d skybox. Disabling the skybox would add a MASSIVE fps increase. a ton of trees were added Duel Arenas made a return Secret space force missile was removed from the map (the one that could be launched to US or RU base and destroyed their walls temporarily for missions easter egg) due to a lack

  5. Garnet Gaming MilitaryRP December 26, 2019 INTRO This the last update of 2019 for MilitaryRP Thank you guys for an amazing year. This was a notably hard year for me as well as a couple other long-timers in the community With 2020 being less than a week away, many of us are going to try out best to improve, and I have a very strong commitment to making MilitaryRP a better server Stay tuned to 2020 for many unique and fun changes! PS it is 3AM and I've been at this for two days now, I most definitely made an error somewhere,

  6. Dear Garnet Gaming members, due to a recent raise in malicious events taking place within our forums, I have decided to take it upon myself to better the security of our users and myself by imposing stricter standards than our forums previously allowed for. I'd like to remind everybody that doxing and DDoSing within our community is NOT tolerated under any event, whether you think the victim deserved it for one reason or another, and any event will lead to the ban of the perpetrator and anybody involved.

  7. Hello Garlic Gamers, We've hit the dreaded "finals" month as well as various states going out of lockdown, making the server population as unpredictable as can be, but I'll try to make the best out of it Server Tickrate 16 > 33 Due to the lower server population, I have shortened the intervals between which players receive input updates from the server. This will in turn provide a MUCH more responsive/accurate feel to players, with far less visual glitches. This bump is massive (more than doubled the previous value) and might bite us in the ass

  8. About 6.5 years ago we started off as a small TTT and DarkRP community that I created after having a foul experience staffing for a careless owner who used his outrageously big donation money towards drugs use, I wanted to create a more attentive community that is frequently updated based off of community criticism back when "suggestion forums" were not a thing in 99% of communities. I didn't have any expectations as far as succeeding, and I humbly was looking forward to running a small 48 slot DarkRP server, however, within a year of playing everyday and staffing for 12 hours a day, taking si

I haven't interacted with Gamma much since I left the community, but the moments we shared were always amazing. To you Gamma, I hope you looked back on the many positive and wonderful memories you got to make with everyone, and somehow feel the love of everyone here. You deserve it. It sucks to know how much pain you must have been going through to take your own life. Whatever your soul might be going through right now, I hope it is bette

  11. Hello GG Community, With the recent release of quite possible the dumbest trailer I have made/seen I feel like there should be a more serious update to whats been going on behind the scenes. The lighting/general look isn't really captured in SFM so I wanted to show you what its gonna look like when you actually get in game. Also I have been working on upping the graphical fidelity of the map to make it feel more lived in and realistic. I wanna give you guys a lot more to do outside of war and more stuff to do in base. Plus the last time you saw what the level looks like it was far from be

  13. Hello Nut Gamers, i'm back in town and ready to roll some more contents onto the server, I took an entire week off where I didn't even check how well the servers are doing for the first time in a LONG TIIME and that was as refreshing as can be. I'm pumped to be back and tackle some of the issues with the servers. This time around I'll try to be more hands-on and potentially play the servers so long as harassment is kept to a minimum. Looking forward to seeing you guys!

Here's to wishing that this new year will bring all of you an endless amount of love and peace. 2020 wasn't the easiest year to get through, but we made it Lets look forward to excelling this year and making the best out of what we have, whether we stay quarantined, or life goes back to the normalcy which we remember.

  15. Hello Goat Gamers, I'm making this post to inform those of you who are trying to communicate with me/communicate with me regularly that I am back in college for a semester. While I am sure I will be able to maintain a high level of activity to ensure new content is pushed to our respective servers, a big chunk of my time is once again being dedicated to ventures outside of Garnet. Unlike in the past, i'm fairly confident I'll be able to do so, however, please do be more mindful that my activity hours have changed, and I may not be on my desktop PC a whole lot to use my microphone/Teamspeak.

  16. Connection Information: 208.103.169.33:27021 3 years later... that's how long its been since our original StarwarsRP server was up - early summer of 2017, the one that launched at the worst possibly time when my grandfather passed away the moment we started regularly hitting over 100 players, I had to take an extensive LOA and leave the country, I trusted the wrong people to maintain it while I was gone, and I was admittedly too much of a hard-headed cunt to take people's suggestion as to how to help them bring it back to life.

Notes Taliban Town has been replaced with good old Toxic Crater Russia's spawn has now been relocated to Taliban Town Hit registration has been adjusted for better predictability Hello Nut Gamers, Following up to our previous thread and messages I've been getting over Steam (yes, I do read them even if it's a tad late) I am slightly at a loss for what direction you guys would like the server go, it seems like our major two conflicts are whether the server should head in a more roleplay-oriented direction, or team deathmatch. As well as whether or not players ar

  18. TEAMSPEAK USAGE IS NOW MANDATORY I understand this is a controversial change, but moving forward, Teamspeak usage will be made mandatory for all SOC factions and Leadership positions for entry level factions. The reason for this change is our lack of player-to-player interaction and retention. I strongly believe that one factor that led to our server's population dropping is the lack of interactions which were brought when Teamspeak was more heavily utilized. Teamspeak for us used to be a hub for hanging out with friends at 200+ daily users. If you do not enjoy this change, I would happily r

  20. Hello Garbanzo Gamers,, Today a few changes have taken place, ones that should be announced and discussed rather than posted as an update. Our forums are currently largely used for shitposting which are in no way the intended purpose of this portal. Mind you, everybody is free to make short, funny, and pointless posts - but outright just posting messages with no context is becoming a hassle to see and repeatedly deal with. To ensure our community's forums maintain a more mature attitude, I have taken measures as to keep repeated offenders off our forums for good, amongst

After spending this ENTIRE day arguing back and fourth with a Facepunch staff member it seems, the final verdict is that our servers are back on the master list until Garry himself comes up with a final verdict Surprisingly, Rubat(robotboy) a Facepunch developer still refers to our DDoS protected servers as 'Ping Spoofing' which is very disrespectful, but we'll let it slide. Thank you all for supporting me today, it's been alot of help.

  25. Largely a work-in-process, but amongst the many things such as playermodels that I'm simultaneously working on, I did not forget those of you who voted in favor of a seasonal map rotation in many suggestion threads. This in theory accomplishes having a refreshing map to look at periodically as to not get bored of playing the same ongoing map for a period of 6 months, as we did with CSCdesert (2 years), Taiga Forest (8 months), and Delta (6 months). This project is taking a very long time to complete due to the nature of mapping being extremely time consuming, and I've outsourced mappers,

Christmas Has come to Downtown Come enjoy the server with a new environment, for the first time since the creation of the server, i've decided it's time to have a festive holiday and switch to a seasonal map! Thank you to Tits' team for creating this seasonal map, I had reached out to them offering to make this happen, but they carried out the task out on their own.

Our community has more than tripled in size since the start of 2020 and we are only a month in, going from a MilitaryRP and DarkRP that would collectively peak at an average of 160, to having a single Rust server that by itself reaches higher peaks than that, along with the introduction of the TTT and Murder gamemodes, and MANY more servers under the works as we speak!

  43. Tickrate Bumped from a value of 22 to 33 This change may cause severe lag when above a threshold of 85-90 players, however, will make the server a far more enjoyable when under these numbers. If there was the possibility to make a dynamic tickrate system, I would have done so, but Source is Source. Leveling System Updated to the latest iteration added extra checks to ensure VIP users get a 20% bonus Passive/AFK XP bonus was buffed from 100 XP every 10 minutes to 250 XP every 5 minutes VIP users will receive 400 XP every 5 minutes

  44. Words directly from our host, "Much of the source code was already out there in one way or another. GMod is in an entirely separate engine revision from CSGO. It’s SIMILAR to TF2 but so is HL2." If my host who's a security freak is not shutting down our network claiming there is no risk and there's nothing to worry about, I'd appreciate if you stopped spreading mass hysteria revolving around Garry's Mod which evidently has no new security concerns. Thank you!

  45. I am SO happy so many of you were excited to see Chaharikar come back. As some of you may have seen, I put alot of thought into it (on my stream) and wanted to ensure it has the extra features such as MATCH, vehicles, and sims that some of us have grown to love and enjoy. There is no telling how well I did until we see where our playerbase peaks tomorrow, however, I am expecting it to be smooth! Working on this update non-stop for the past 50 something hours have caused my back/shoulders to feel like shit, so excuse me if I promptly take a day off. Beta Scoreboard
