Statement regarding VR Chat

By Rowedahelicon

A while back, VR Chat introduced some changes that forbid the use of mods in their game with the addition of Easy Anti Cheat, I won't go into details, but the end result was a noticeable drop in VR Chat players, and the open discussion of moving to alternatives such as Chillout VR or Neos VR.

SCG, in our mission to support modding communities, would like to move over to one of these games. However, I have decided that this process will be a slow transmission rather than an immediate demand. In order to give people time to acclimate themselves with other platforms, and see where and what the community feels comfortable with, we'd like to try slowly moving over to one of said platforms. It is undecided at this time which one, but I will be taking feedback to better understand what others think.

In the meantime, I would like to continue having VR nights again in some capacity, such as occasional event nights in VR Chat where everyone already had their avatars / worlds setup. Originally, we were delaying them due to issues with the weather, and then the modding mess happened.

Consider joining us this weekend, at 9:00 PM Eastern, for a get together in VR Chat! As always, you do not need a VR headset to join us.

[TF2] New feature: Alias!

By Rowedahelicon

Recently, we've added a new feature to our TF2 servers. The alias command!

!alias "name", /alias "name" or in console, sm_alias "name"

Setting an alias allows you to use a different name in the server than on Steam. Additionally, you can use the settings menu (/settings) to optionally add the SCG Prefix to an alias, or your existing Steam name. This command is for everyone to use!

[Discord] New Announcement Role!

By Rowedahelicon

To help organized the interested parties of potential TF2 events, MvM has been given its own announcement role! Like other announcement roles, it is meant for organizing events on SCG servers. In this instance, this would be for folks looking for players on our MvM servers. Additionally, it will help curb spam for those who are simply interested in regular TF2.

You can add, or remove, this role using the /role command on Discord. Poe will help you!

10 years of MvM!

By Rowedahelicon

Did you know what Mann Versus Machine came out 10 years ago today? Did you know also know our MvM server is one of our most popular?

If you weren't aware, our MvM server features a 10 player limit, over the usual 6, and a homemade difficulty modifier that stops a game of 10 from being wildly overpowered. With efforts from the MvM community, we have an impressive lineup of awesome maps, and over 1000 missions varying from casual sessions to some of the most insane tests of endurance.

Thanks to the assistance of the lovely Seabass, the experiences we provide are well curated, and we are constantly finding new content to offer, and new tools to keep track of it all.

There was coincidentally a large update today,, we are narrowing the gap of missing icons and broken missions. Additionally, a whole new server to test some of the more complex missions has been made available! We look forward to seeing folks on the battle field, there is always more in store!
