Hey guys! So recently I’ve started my own server in Rust. It’s only a 50 slot for now, but I wanted everyone here to have the chance to play on it if you own the game.
I know there’s a lot of people that have told me the game is full of trolls and the like. Or they can’t get started because people grief them and so on. So I’ve started the server and am currently tweaking it to be a challenging yet fair and fun server.
If you want to get in, log into steam > click view at the top > servers > favorites tab > add server.
The IP and Port for the server are: 126.96.36.199:28251 (Hosted on HostHavoc)
I’ve installed several mods(testing thoroughly to ensure they don’t break the experience and these are subject to change.)
Hunt RPG: This essentially turns the game into a community game with RPG elements. Every time you gain a level you get 3 Stat Points and 2 Skill Points. Stats are Agility(Chance to dodge attacks), Strength(Increases health), and Intellect(Decreases crafting time). Skills included, but not limited to: Lumberjack, Miner, Blacksmith, Gatherer, Etc. Each skill requires a certain number of Skill points to level. This essentially makes it so working together is beneficial. Lumberjack gains more wood per hit, Miner gains more Ore per hit, Blacksmith gains more from Smelting and so on.
- While in game type /hunt or /h to bring up a quick help menu of the commands.
Removed Zlevels to replace with Hunt RPG
Auto Doors: Doors will automatically close behind you after 5 seconds.
Door Share: You have the ability to share doors with your friends via commands. This will prevent you from having to constantly change codes on doors because you only wanted them to have temporary access.(Still working towards fixing this one, it’s a little buggy.)
Pets: New in the game! You can now tame animals to follow you and carry items and such. Some Animals are better for attacking, some better for carrying.(Requires lvl 30 in RPG)
Heli Inbound: This will notify the server in chat when a Helicopter is coming.
Teleport System: You are able to teleport to your friends. Should you die, and don’t want to constantly have to keep finding them and spending to much time just running around aimlessly(The second reason for this is below).
/tpr “playername” - Requests Teleport
/tpa - Accept teleport request
/sethome “homename” - This sets your home(Must own it with Tool Cupboard, Max 1 home.)
/home “homename” - This will TP you back to home after 15s. 600s CD, 3 uses per day.
Removed RadTown Animals and replaced with an acutal spawn script
Removal Tool: This allows any Base Owner to destroy a constructed piece within a certain timeframe of building the objects.(Note: You must have a tool cupboard up for this to work, and there will be a cost association to it. Tweaking those for balance/grief reasons.)
Removed Welcome Gifts due to being buggy and unreliable
Time Manager: We all hate the nighttime in Rust, so I’ve adjusted those. Standard is 45 Minutes for Daytime, and 15 Minutes for Night. It is currently 50 Mins of Daytime and 10 Minutes of Night.
Rotate on Upgrade: You are able to rotate walls/buildings after upgrading them.(Should you accidentally place them the wrong way)
Rust IO: If you are unfamiliar with this, it’s amazing! Go to http://playlist.io and search for the “Doom Squad” server and log in with steam. It will pull your Steam ID and give you a real time location of where you are on the map! You can also share your location with friends playing so you will all be able to find each other and see where you are!
Sign Artist: Decorate like never before! You can now upload images to place on signs.
Upload Image on something like Imgur.
While looking at the sign or painting, type /sil “url”(minus parenthesis, and you need the direct link).
There is a CoolDown for this, haven’t adjusted it properly yet.
There are the obvious Anti-Cheat, Anti-Hack, Anti-Clipping Mods Installed as well. And players with high ping get kicked automatically to make the experience nice for everyone!
Many changes are coming, but this is just the start. Right now I have the server name for my streaming community. But if enough people are on board I would be more than willing to donate the server and make it Strats focused!
Thanks guys! and stay tuned to this post for updates and changes, along with a list of commands that can be used for the mods on the server!
