  • Out of all Garry's Mod gamemodes, this was one of my favorites. People were always working together to make a successful tribe. Does anybody else miss this gamemode?

  • It seems to get a wee bit monotonous after an hour or so. Perhaps some sort of 'random' event system might help it.
  • The problem with it is that trees and rocks for resources very quickly replenished as people built loads of crap and some level 60 people had a skybase built out of metal laughing at the peasants below until the map reset. If resources depleted less and more people played I would go back.

  • Stranded was awesome when it worked. The latest version that I had played got very repetitive, though. Still, Stranded multiplayer is a nice concept. I'd like to see Stranded II actually go co-op rather than a gmod gamemode, but one can only dream.

  • I tried it. Was walking around, didn't know what to do. 10 minutes after: "I'm gonna play sandbox instead"

  • Well now there's minecraft, which I think a lot of people just sort of migrated over to.

  • I never played it, but it looks like a lot of fun. What happened to it anyway? I remember it was a pretty big deal back then. Was there a RP aspect? It seems like there would be.

  • I just played it a few hours ago with some friends. Was nice. It's a fun gamemode if you haven't played it.

I would scout out the area as the seagull looking for resources. Sometimes we would have wars against other tribes and I would look at their defenses before we attacked.

  • I'm an admin on a server that runs stranded still (not going to advertise it here), It's been rather quiet recently though.
