Valve finally convinced Garry to put his mod into Steam
Suddenly there was a GMod server, which started expanding. Earliest records point to this year.
People come and go, the server was mainly only a build server with various addons and no real community
Until now the server had gone by various names until the server started to be referred to as Meta Construct, referring to the fact that the server was not only about building props, but building the tools for building.
CapsAdmin joined the ride and brought with him some of his addons developed with other gmod old-timers. Lots of coding happened.
First real minigame by a Metastruct-taught developer, Mare.
The repository that should have never been had its first commit.
More passerby gamer-coders joined the server and coded a little.
The server shifts to the Metastruct map, which was built from ground up to really not be anything but a build with non build area fun stuff, such as a bar and a theater and whatever else.
Metastruct map now has working televators.
Player Apperance Customizer lifts its head.
Vuvuzela takes over the game servers. Much annoyance can be had for months if not years.
Old map hit a dead end or something and was replaced with a new rewrite from ground, borrowing from half life 2 example vmfs. Have you noticed any familiar features on the lobby compared to starting level of HL2?
What a leap year.
Third rewrite of PAC.
aowl added to the server. Hurray! (previously nero)
Who knew there would be such spamming?
Young minge comes in and breaks stuff with hassle. Including SVNs.
Now you can get your chatsound spam fix on the go.
Meta Construct was one of the first servers to survive the Garry's Mod 13 tsunami.
<Garry> You guys are crazy WTF
Meta Construct expand to demoscenes.
"I even remember where I stood."
I can't remember how long it lasted (a few weeks?).
Second real minigame by Freezebug unknown for many.
spawned the idea, Badges and MetaWorks followed.
No one notices for 5 months until PAC3 gets mystery updates.
Party hats for lobby NPCs.
Donated by 'our benefactor', soon to replace server #1.
Achievement for having achievements, Python hired by Valve. No, the bluescreen crashes were not part of the day.
Proxy sgn() function, custom animation part, animation editor tweaks, fov override, lions, tigers, bears, oh my!
Last confirmed contact happened around midnight GMT+0
Whole player models can now theoretically be used.
After threats spanning years about decomissioning the server decomissions itself presumably through hard disk death.
Server #2 will be disabled "soon"
Deathmatch related features added by Mare & Tenrys to RP area.
CapsAdmin has left Metastruct, most want him back, a new movement has began. CapsAdmin thinks it is best he does not come back.
Someone hates Metastruct, please tweet us why.
DDoS exceeds 12Gbps. Still no idea why.
ukgamer redesigns the website based on some logo KeyLimePie sent him.
Lapin has left the building. PAC is to be blamed
Nothing much happened, hats on NPC and Candy bags.

One server goes, another one surfaces
It "wasn't worth the power it was consuming". It was definitely worth the try.
