Rust Servers

All servers now wipe every 2 to 3 weeks (bi-weekly) depending on whether it's a 4 or 5 week month. You can find the schedule for the wipes in Discord at top left under Events.

Currently the PvE and PvP servers are on a bi-weekly wipe cycle, where forced wipe is the first Thursday of the month. The other wipe takes place on the third or fourth Thursday depending on a 4 or 5 week month. ie For a 5 week month, wipe would be at week 1 and 4 meaning there's 2 weeks before the monthly forced wipe.

For forced wipes on the first Thursday of each month, we don't know the exact time, it's always up to FacePunch and how quickly they can get their new builds out but it's usually around 7.00pm GMT. For mid-monthly wipes we'll also try to do the wipe at 7.00pm GMT.

 

PvE Rust Server #1 (x3500 map) - steam://connect/144.76.153.229:28015

x5 gather PvE plus experience increases and a lot of loot in barrels and chests (no junk). All buildings are protected and can't be raided, but if someone leaves a door or roof open, then they may be looted by unscrupulous players, so don't do that. Players can't be killed by other players except for in the few PvP zones (you get a warning when entering) and sometimes some players will choose to build in the PvP zones so they can raid and battle each other. You can still be killed by the environment (animals, radiation, scientists, zombies). Wiped every 2 weeks, (week 1 and 3) or at week 4 if it's a 5-week month.

PvE Rust Server #2 (x3500 map) - steam://connect/144.76.153.229:28025

x10 gather PvE plus experience increases and a lot of loot in barrels and chests (no junk). Comments about building protection, PvP zones etc are the same as PvE #1 above. Wiped every 2 weeks, (week 1 and 3) or at week 4 if it's a 5-week month.

CLANS Rust Server (x3500 map) - steam://connect/144.76.153.229:28065

x10 gather PvP plus progression through activity on the server (gather amounts, wood cutting, crafting, etc) and a lot of loot in barrels and chests (no junk). This is the place to go to make friends and enemies, build a clan and go raiding. Wiped every 2 weeks, (week 1 and 3) or at week 4 if it's a 5-week month.

SOLO Rust Server (x3500 map) - steam://connect/144.76.153.229:28075

x10 gather Solo PvP - like the PvP server above, but for SINGLE players only. When we catch you (and we will) teaming or co-operating with other players in any way (sharing without using /trade, or raiding, fetching stuff for another player etc), you will be banned permanently from ALL our Rust servers. Trading between players via /trade is permitted, but that's it, no other co-operation or allying is permitted. Wiped every 2 weeks, (week 1 and 3) or at week 4 if it's a 5-week month.

DUO Rust server (x3500 map) - steam://connect/144.76.153.229:28085

x10 gather Duo PvP - like the PvP server above, but for TWO-PLAYER teams only - allying with other teams to form a larger clan will earn you a permanent ban on all our Rust servers. As with Solo above trading via /trade is okay, but any other form of co-operation will get you banned. We WILL find out, and we ban people regularly for trying to bend the rules on both Duo and Solo servers. Wiped every 2 weeks, (week 1 and 3) or at week 4 if it's a 5-week month.

Mini-map vs PlayRust.io Map

For a while we used to run the servers with an in-game mini-map which was okay but not as good as the full size maps at PlayRust.io. Then one time after an update of the mini-map plugin which reduced the size of the viewable portion of the map, suddenly some players (strangely not all) were having their Rust client crash with red text written all over it. It was only when we removed the mini-map that the problem went away for people. We think it's probably a clash between two plugins on the servers, but even today we still have no idea what might be causing the problem.

Until we discover what's causing it, then we recommend that everyone use the maps on the PlayRust.io web site in your web browser. They're far better quality and you can see cargo planes, helicopters (and their crash sites) and your friends and clan mates all on one big map. If you needed an excuse to buy a second monitor, this is it. 😉 🙄

In both cases, when viewing the PlayRust.io maps make sure to log in via Steam auth and you'll see yourself (and optionally your friends and clan mates) moving around on the map.

And while you're messing around with Steam, it's a good idea to join the GameKeeper Steam Group too. You'll get a free supply signal every day by typing the chat command /kit steam while in-game on one of the servers.
