Hi, welcome back. Usually in the evening, there is some activity on some servers. Another approach is to bring your friends with you.

i play a dying Unreal3 game called Hawken. i flamed my cpu and mobo 2 nights ago, and am awaiting replacement parts, and saw the SG desktop link on an old W7/Fedora box i'm using in the interim. i noticed the note in the box cover "10/2012", so yeh it's been a while. but we're still Out Here!

I do occasionally. It's fun, but...
SG is obscure. I got it from PlayDeb (which still has 1.0). Repositories are simply convenient, so not many people will look anywhere else, unless searching for something specific.
I also occasionally look up cool stuff on SourceForge, but that's it.
Windows crowd may have it better in that they have to look around, or worse - no easy updates and there only so many shops or review sites most people will visit regularly.

Also, unlike Cube games, here's no readily available lobby/masterserver/whatever.
Thus PlayDeb stats show 1646 downloads, but you won't see most of these people here or on your server. Most of them probably run single-player for a while, get tired of stupid bots and move on.

Did you try to download and unpack the OS independent archive and run ./smokinguns.i386 from it? It's version 1.1 and should show some multiplayer servers. On the download page, there's also a .deb file.

I play it pretty much on a daily basis. There are three or four other players that join in around the same time as me, so we have some pretty fun (and competitive!) games. I'm in the U.S., and typically play on weekday afternoons. The servers are (I believe) all in Europe, and I'm not sure how the time zones translate. You'll find us in the Baller Bude server!

Yeah, was on my way there - when finally remembered how Vega Strike packages were butchered and thought to check whether it's better straight from the horse's mouth. |D

Cool. I once even joined when there were living players. Probably few enough people (for the same reason), that it happens only in right time.
Of course, usually there are 4 servers with >0 players (even if placeholder bots), and only 2 of them are accessible, since "Baller Bude" requires a resource it doesn't allow to download, while "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" seems to connect nicely until it stops on "Awaiting snapshot", so there may be more activity, i just won't see it.

I check sometimes if there is decent amount of players online but apparently not.
