Water Bases

Update: There is now a Floating Water Bases Tutorial page.

The Water Bases plugin that was discussed in Discord #suggestions is now active on all servers.

The floating foundations look like this, but appear as a rubber ring floatie when placing them.

Once you’ve placed down your first foundation, then AS LONG AS you have more floating foundations in your inventory, you can use the building planner with floor selected to place down more. As you place down each floor, it consumes one of your floating foundations. So use the FLOORS in your building planner, not foundations.

I REALLY like that you can add a floor frame and put a ladder hatch at the bottom of your base to climb up and in. The fishing nets are an additional bonus and catch random loot.

For this next wipe, the floating foundations are craftable so everybody can have a good go with the plugin, but after the March 3rd forced wipe you’ll only be able to buy the special foundations (which are really floors) in the /s store.

Have fun, but please don’t create massive floating bases. Hm, I think I’ll go make sure there are some limits. 😉

Sleeping In Water Now Damages You

As the Rust devs don’t seem to be in a hurry to fix this exploit, we’ve now made it so that if you go to sleep in water, you start taking damage.

The rate we’ve set is you lose 1 HP every 144 seconds. Doing a bit of maths means you will lose 100 HP in 4 hours and wake up dead. This means if you get accidentally disconnected due to EAC or a bad internet connection and you happen to be in water at the time, you won’t be immediately killed. No, it will happen much more slowly and painfully than that.

Of course if your bad connection continues we can’t help that, it’s just too bad, sorry.

So unless you intend to be on the servers a LOT, don’t sleep in the water any more.
