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 kindly ask anyone willing to help us test this update before it releases (especially modders and server owners), to minimize any potential problems with the update.

You will find instructions on how to use the upcoming update below.

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 while on the "prerelease" branch.
After the update releases you will have to wait for server owners to update their servers before you can play on them.

Multiplayer games are the best type of games, because they’re built around the most interesting components known to humans: humans. Men, women, and an awful lot of children.

Internet strangers aren’t always the friendliest bunch, but they can surprise you in ways that a static system can’t. People form the living, beating hearts of the gaming moments I value the most. Join me, then, as I point at the games that encase those beating hearts best. (more…)

We're releasing a small hotfix to address a recently found exploit that allowed users to execute arbitrary Lua scripts on servers. If you run a server, you should update it.

It's a very non-intrusive update, so there should be no risk of anything breaking, except - potentially - third-party binary modules.

Jazztronauts is a mod about how mods are made. In this clever meta-modification for Garry’s Mod, you (and optionally your pals) go on scavenger hunts through the 15,000+ maps already on the Steam Workshop. You’re hunting for glowing crystals while stealing everything else (from chairs to wall textures) to sell for cash to spend on persistent upgrades, then escaping in a wall-smashing cosmic tram car. Jazztronauts is out now, and you’ll need Garry’s Mod (plus some extras) to play.

A fascinating new mod for the Source engine sandbox Garry’s Mod will send players ram-raiding through player-created maps swiped off the Steam Workshop to steal everything that isn’t nailed down, stripping them of everything from antlions to light fittings. That’s the big idea of Jazztronauts, which looks both incredibly clever and stupid as hell. On one hand, it’s deconstructing the illusions of level design. On the other, you do smash into levels inside a giant bus, get to see your haul of trash rain down from a gameshow-y prize tube, and will be able to date cats. An excellent combination. Here, come watch this. (more…)
