What morgan said, the source engine caps at 255 players but gmod only allows 128 for good reasons.

Only solution to your problem is have another server with linked database but no point really.

I’m sorry but it is impossible for player slots to be increased, Garry’s Mod doesn’t allow it.

Only thing I’d think to fix this was to have a second server for events that way people can still play on the server when an events going on balancing out population.

It would be awesome to have more than 128 players on at once, but keep track of your lag and server lag to see how it simply couldn't work.

And as stated before, it simply couldn't happen, regardless of that, good idea, I'd like more people, but it's impossible.

Its possible for the cap to be increased, many Facepunch employees with their own servers had 255 slot servers back in the old days when they were heavily invested in Garry's Mod and its development. Nonetheless, the box can't handle it, Garry's Mod can only run off one core, and we chug when we really hit over 110 players. When S&box arrives, maybe then, maybe we'll be able to go above and beyond, but for now, 128 slots is a lot, think about that for a moment. There are 128 people around the world, wanting to connect to the same server you do, even more at times. That's crazy.

More slot for regiments? Possibly yes after tones of planning from both management and IHC.

More server slots? Do you want the server to crash as you are joining and wait 10-30 minutes for it to come back up?

 

If your answer is yes to those last two questions, then you're easily entertained.

The only option for upping slots is a second server with a linked database but at this point we have enough players are staff to effectively run the second server, however, most of the important people will be on the first server and there would be a lot to prepare for it.

 

We COULD theoretically have the Primary Server on the Death Star (when it comes out) and the Secondary server on the Star Destroyer or Base Map to get a lot of VARIETY.

 

It aint gunna happen but i'd be down to staff the second server.
