Hi all, and welcome to the Golden Machine Gun finale show. This is our last TF2 event, the last time you will set foot on our official Chambers server. We will be running the show quite for several hours, so you will have plenty of time to grab a slot. Feel free to come on in, hang out, and screw around like the good old days. One last time. If you're busy, we will be posting a video of the event on our YouTube page later on.

Join the Finale

Thanks to those of you who have stuck around from the earlier days. It has been a very, very fun ride. I will treasure the time we spent developing the server, hanging around in the forums, and, more or less, growing up together. Your suggestions, bug reports, comments, and presence shaped what we will remember GMG as.

Since the forums have had little activity, we have a Discord server if you're looking to stay in touch with the group. Any other major announcements will be on the Steam group. We will continue to live on, and next summer we will be having another Trouble in Terrorist Town event. Click here to join the Discord.

If you're looking to have another experience like the Golden Machine Gun TF2 servers, we will likely be making a virtual reality version of GMG in several years, when the technology has taken off more. A completed version of what we were building, on a more appropriate platform. If you're wanting to hear more information on that, my Twitter is @noodleboy347. I rarely post, but if I'm going to do anything like create a new game, that will definitely be the place to follow.

That's all, I hope you enjoy the show!

We are throwing a party this month! The finale event, the last time we will be setting foot in Team Fortress 2, is taking place on July 23 at 12:00 PM PST (click here for the event on Steam, along with your local time). You can expect the event to be similar to Tunnels Day. The event will last until the server clears out, so you'll have plenty of time to come hang around, even if the server is full. If you're unable to make it, we will be posting a full video of the event up on our YouTube channel.

Thanks, and we'll see you then!

It's time, GMG! The Minecraft server is back! For those of you who haven't played in a while, the game has changed quite a bit. It has changed dramatically since the last GMG server was running.

We will be running on Minecraft 1.9 Normal Survival. PvP is disabled for the time being. The server is mostly vanilla; we are running on Spigot with no visible plugins at the moment. If we end up gathering a good playerbase, we will consider adding some more plugins and if necessary, moderators.

To connect, you must be running Minecraft 1.9. If you are running a snapshot, you will not be able to connect!

Once you are on 1.9, connect to the server:
(Clicking that will do nothing, for the most part; enter it in Minecraft!)

Hope to see you there!

Golden Machine Gun is making a return this weekend, in a chunkier, blockier form!

The Golden Machine Gun Minecraft server is back, starting this Friday. The server will be online for the entire weekend, and if there is enough activity, the server could be back for good! We have a subgroup located here, in case you are looking to receive related announcements and other information when the time comes. Everyone in this group will receive early access to the server (and by that I don't mean that the server will be half-finished and abandoned by the developers) come Friday.

In addition to this, we have started a Discord server for anyone interested in sharing a discussion or using voice on the Minecraft server (or even general gaming with your old GMG pals):

If you don't have a Discord account, it is very easy to set up, and the application can be run in-browser.

We look forward to mining and crafting with you this weekend! May you have a fantastic rest of the week. Watch out for the follow-up post this Friday which will contain the server connection information and other general info.

Happy 2016 Golden Machine Gun!

In October we said our goodbyes to Tunnels, and it was pleasantly nostalgic to hang around with everyone for one last time. This year we will be holding our last event, and our last goodbye as we depart fully from Team Fortress 2. And it will be a big one.

Finale is a linear event with multiple showings, and slot reserving. It will be over an hour long and will take you back through the history of Golden Machine Gun. The showings will currently be throughout July, and as we approach the date more information will be revealed.

See you this summer!

Good day Golden Machine Gun. For those of you not aware, today is Golden Machine Gun's seventh birthday! A whole seven years we've been around! Hanging about in Team Fortress 2, terrorizing terrorists in Garry's Mod, slaying zombies in Killing Floor, building stuff in Minecraft, kicking back in Tinychat. We've had some awesome times, gone through about four websites, and probably more forums. What started as a basic hosted map grew into something enormous and incredible, and although our time here is nearly over, the memories live on forever, and the friends that were made will always be there.

It's a shame things had to end, but no game lasts forever. Although Team Fortress 2 has made some abysmal decisions in the past few years, it's a game that will always have a place in my heart if only for the excellent memories that it left me with. With that said, we want to give one final goodbye to Tunnels, for the good times. This weekend Golden Machine Gun will be hosting Tunnels Day, this Saturday at 12PM PST. All are invited, and if more space is needed we will be providing extra servers. We are going to be running version 16, many people's favorite version of the map.

Just to put in some background, Tunnels popped up some time after Chambers had been running. It was an opportunity for me to explore another style of map, to contrast Chambers' bright and colorful design, Tunnels was a dark and rainy place. A different atmosphere with a different group of regulars and admins. Tunnels was its own place, not simply an extension of Chambers. I loved Tunnels, and would occasionally pop in to have some fun, and fun was certainly had:

The map changed a lot, growing in size and becoming a lot more open, as well as becoming THE Golden Machine Gun server to be home to a bunch of bots for achievement snatching. This is when the server was in its prime, and gained quite the following. YouTuber ARMaster was a big fan of the server, and we had good times:

Later on, Tunnels was completely remade, with a new setting, improved visuals, and the actually freaky underground, with the Dystopian. During a minor Halloween ARG, a singleplayer horror maze map was released showing what was behind the door in the underground.

We then celebrated some of our second Fourth of July with fireworks on the new map. A perfect setting for such a colorful performance.

Thank you all for the wonderful, magnificent times you have spent playing with us! In the short time we have in this world, there's nothing better than spending time with friends. Hope to see you this weekend! More details will be available on the day of.

Hello to anyone out there! It's been a good amount of time since any valuable news, but today is one of those days. I've done some cleaning up of the event calendar, and we're now locked in with the final version of it. Three events remain this year, with a final show beginning production in 2016 for all our long-time members.

View the Calendar

This summer we will once again be hosting our near-annual Trouble in Terrorist Town server. Next month, get ready participate in this fun summer event. If there is enough attendance and interest, more than one day will be scheduled, and each event will wield updates with new content.

Rooftops Battle Arena was such a fantastic map, but only received mere days of attention. With our foot slowly leaving the door of Team Fortress 2, we wanted to leave this map available to the Team Fortress 2 community; finished and available to all for download.

Tunnels Day is the last time you'll officially play on Tunnel Achievements. Falling on the weekend after Golden Machine Gun's seventh birthday, Tunnels Day will be your last day to pay respects to this dark, barren place.

The Finale, our last event, is a scheduled show with reserved slots, and will mark the end of Golden Machine Gun's presence in Team Fortress 2. More information will be available next year.

We hope these events are of some value to you, and we'll see you there!

Hey Golden Machine Gun, to celebrate reaching 1000 members on Modding of Isaac, we're giving out a unique Scout icon for all Golden Machine Gun members to enjoy! To reclaim it, all you need to do is login to the site and then follow this link:

It looks a little something like this:

That's the last promotional bit I have for the new site, so if you're entirely uninterested, we're done bugging you about it. If you're into Rebirth or modding, you should check it out Until next time, GMG.
