Update 14.4.5 is being launched on 15/05/2018 at 07:00 BST
Here's some of the new changes:
Improved Glove Icons
We have now improved the icons for the gloves, you can now see both the left and right gloves
Skin Testing Environment Improvements
STE has received a lot of updates, adding in support for pattern floats and stickers.
When selecting an item with pattern floats, you can now select the float you wish to view
By pressing the menu button (Q Default) you can also modify the weapon properties
You can modify StatTrak, give it a custom name, the StatTrak kills and assign all 4 sticker slots.
New Sport Gloves | Molten Float
The float for the Sport Gloves | Molten has now been increased from 1.1 to 1.3
@TheSinkingSponge has provided us with a new pattern float variant. These are also glow in the dark, so if you ever get in to a dark place, check them out 👀
Sport Gloves | Molten (Bismuth)
We also fixed a bunch of bugs that you guys reported to us, so thanks a lot to the whole community for that. We have some more Gungame 2 changes on the way later this week, which will tweak shotguns.
For now, Update 14.4.5 will be releasing later today!
Today we are launching our new content distribution client called WarZone Sync.
There have been complaints with the Steam workshop and how it works and with addons not updating properly.
You can use this application to download all skins and the majority of FastDL content (With the exception of maps and player models)
The client also contains an optional package to download Counter-Strike: Source content.
You can download the client here: https://downloads.warzone.gg/wzsync_client/warzonesync_setupv1.msi
The setup of the client is fairly easy, upon the first run you will be prompted to select your Garry's Mod directory, after that the client will automatically detect if your files are updated, and if not download and install the content for you.
Please bare in mind, this a temporary solution. We are in the process of writing a fully featured WarZone desktop client, however in the mean time, this provides a reliable and easy way to get our server content without having to deal with Steam workshop.
If you are using this client, you can safely unsubscribe from our workshop addons. 👍
The Gungame #2 update is finally here!
This update contains the rewrite of Gungame and loads of new community content created items.
We have not done one in a long while, so from now until Monday 11PM GMT, we are hosting another Double XP & Money weekend to celebrate the launch of Gungame #2
On the 15th of April, R. Lee Ermey died due to complications with pneumonia. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-43779357

This is an Item Removal Notification.
We intend on removing certain items from the servers which will affect players inventories within the next two weeks. The final removal date will be 31st May 2018
✪ Tactical Gloves
The tactical gloves model and the ability to make skins for tactical gloves will be removed, we are deprecating the gloves model in favour of newer high definition glove and hand models.
✪ Tactical Gloves | Country Variants
We will be removing all country variant gloves which are at present, available to purchase in the in-game store. As we are deprecating Tactical Gloves in favour of Hard Knuckle, Full Finger and Fingerless gloves, we have no intention of re-making the country gloves at this moment in time and as such will be removed. We do intend that as part of this removal process to create some new store buy-able gloves on the 2 other Full Finger/Finger-less models.
Items to be removed:
https://warzone.gg/wiki/viewitem?id=850 (Czech Republic)
https://warzone.gg/wiki/viewitem?id=853 (South Africa)
https://warzone.gg/wiki/viewitem?id=854 (European Union)
We highly suggest that any owners of these gloves to sell them as quickly as possible, although we will refund anyone who currently owns these gloves once they are removed.
✪ Tactical Gloves - Case Only Variants
We will not be removing the case only variants, these will be remaining, however these are being completely re-made from scratch on the new Hard Knuckle gloves model, you can see a few previews below.
These will change automatically for the current owners.
Heyo, we're going to be changing Surf DM soon, we'll also be bringing in new maps and we want to know what you think of our current maps. We'll have room to remove the bad maps that someone decided to add without considering anything *cough* Matt *cough*.
So if you could post here the maps, and whats wrong with them.
You can also use this to make map suggestions. If you could post the map name + link, i'll check it out when I can. I'd prefer CSS maps.
Here are the maps we're currently contemplating removing (This list is not complete, we're still getting feedback.)
surf_machine variants (keeping atleast one)
