Ground Branch Server - SAS Proving Ground 10

The Ground Branch server is running again. However, there are some troubles with the main server list, so our server is not appearing on the server list at the moment.

You can join the server directly using the console: open 185.15.73.207:7777

If you can't find the console key, take a look at this forum post to change the keybind for console.

For the future I plan to update the server with the latest development build available. This means you might need to switch to the testing branch.

If you run into the insertion room and into the "box" saying Global Team/Room and click with your left mouse button. That worked for me!
