December 2018 Hotfix is live https://gmod-servers.com/blog/14/december-2018-hotfix-is-live/ https://gmod-servers.com/blog/14/december-2018-hotfix-is-live/ Thu, 06 Dec 2018 17:16 CET [gmod.facepunch.com]

The changes

Today's update brings a small amount of vital improvements to the stability and security of the game. This update is mandatory meaning servers will have to be updated before players can join them.

The update fixes some Team Fortress 2 maps crashing when looking at certain spots, and those maps now also properly load detail props. A long standing crash with decals on very high quality models was fixed as well.

This update also brings a new hashing algorithm for Lua files which will prevent people from running custom clientside code on servers when they are not supposed to be able to.

  • Fixed a crash with decals on high poly models
  • Fixed a crash with Projected Textures
  • Fixed crash issues on some TF2 maps
  • Fixed crash issue with physenv.AddSufraceData()
  • Fixed not being able to start a new game with too many game.AddDecal() calls
  • Fixed a crash issue with env_fog_controller
  • Fixed crash exploits with parenting of unremovable entities to removable ones and deleting them this way
  • Fixed certain players not being able to be muted on servers with large populations
  • Changed Lua file hashing algorithm to improve security

Notice
Unlike many previous updates, this one will require servers to update before you can join them. We try to keep such updates to a minimum, but it was necessary for this update.

This means that for a certain time after the update you may get a message such as "The server is running an older version of the game" when connecting to your favourite servers. You will have to wait for servers to update before you can join them again.

You CANNOT downgrade to a previous version of the game.

We are planning to put out the next Garry's Mod update next week.

You can find the list of changes that will be coming here:
http://wiki.garrysmod.com/changelist/prerelease/

Pre-release Steam Branch
The Pre-Release Steam branch for Garry's Mod has been updated and contains all the changes that will be included in the next update.

Please note that this update NOT backwards compatible with the current version of the game, so you won't be able to play on normal servers.

If you want to set up an SRCDS instance using the Pre-Release branch, see this article: https://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/Hosting_A_Dedicated_Server.]]>
GMod Stories: The making of Trouble in Terrorist Town https://gmod-servers.com/blog/6/gmod-stories-the-making-of-trouble-in-terrorist-town/ https://gmod-servers.com/blog/6/gmod-stories-the-making-of-trouble-in-terrorist-town/ Fri, 16 Feb 2018 16:08 CET [gmod.facepunch.com]

Over the years, Trouble in Terrorist Town has been one of the most enduring Garry's Mod modes, if not to play then certainly to watch. We got in touch with TTT's creator Stefan (aka Bad King Urgrain) to talk about how it came together, how it sprung from another mod, why people are still playing his duplicitous deathmatch, and what Gabe Newell thinks about it.

GMod Stories: The Making of Haven https://gmod-servers.com/blog/7/gmod-stories-the-making-of-haven/ https://gmod-servers.com/blog/7/gmod-stories-the-making-of-haven/ Fri, 02 Feb 2018 15:49 CET [gmod.facepunch.com]

What if Gordon Freeman didn't exist? That's the premise behind Haven, a 40 minute experimental machinima that has just been released, filmed in Garry's Mod. I wasn't even 10 minutes into watching it when I started making notes to send to the creator, because I had so many questions about how something like this was possible.

Come and watch the whole thing, and read how film-maker Daniel Schetter crafted one of the most impressive pieces of machinima you'll ever see.

Update errors
If your anti virus detected any game files as a potential virus - It's a FALSE POSITIVE. This is a common problem with FREE anti virus software. Report it as such with your anti virus program. You can also add the game ( or those files ) into exceptions.

To restore the wrongly deleted files, simply verify the game cache integrity through Steam.]]>
