Community & Server Update Summer 2019

Recommended Posts


Here's the full summary of updates we've introduced to our community & servers during the summer of 2019!

Discord Rewards went live, and you love them! [2019-07-31]
In order to stimulate community engagement we've given players an incentive to join our Discord.
The reward can be claimed upon following the instructions after entering the command below in chat.

Players who link their account receive some RP and a mystery item as well as being granted the @Rust | 2X Vanilla+ role in Discord!

Making space for the new Giant Excavator pit [2019-08-01]

  • Map size increased from 3500 to 4050
    Facepunch changed the way the procedural maps generated which made maps smaller than 3500 in size lose monuments. We looked at some seeds for 3500 and even that looked really tight with little space to build on, so we bumped up the size quite a bit to allow for the best experience.

Tweaks! [2019-08-01]

  • Tool Cupboard stacks 2X again
  • Caves are no longer excluded from griefing rules

Voting Rewards went live, and we're smashing it! [2019-08-05]
We all know our server is the one and only at making monthly wipes great. So now we want other's to know as well! We've listed the server on voting sites and allowed the community to vote for rewards.
 


Players who vote receive some RP and a gift.
It's super simple to vote, you can do it here.

Thank you all for the votes! Let's keep this up and we'll have a smashing wipe in September as well!

 Updates to the new NoobProtection system [2019-08-15]
A few days into the august forced wipe we introduced a new system we call NoobProtection. This is a system that will allow players who join the first time on the wipe to be protected from only PVP (that means not PVE, animals will still hurt them) for 2 hours. During that time the protected player may not damage, loot or kill any other player - likewise they can't be hurt by other players.

The idea behind this is that new players will be able to get a peaceful start and make a small base before getting wiped off the server potentially hurting the overall population.

Note: The protection is fully optional and for those who think they're fine without can simply opt out immediately by using the command

/np end

We noticed some new players started using it a bit differently than it was meant to, so I've further developed the system to restrict a protected player from abusing it.

 

  • NoobProtection players can no longer loot recycler.
    We've had instances of protected players stealing items from other recycling players.
    This is why we can't have nice things and its why it will now be blocked.
     
  • NoobProtection players can not equip and use high tier weapons 
    Basically only bows and spears are allowed, however they may still store weapons in their inventory.
     
  • Penalty for damaging other players while being protected has been increased to 30 minutes.
    This means any protected player will lose their protection almost instantly when trying to hurt other players.
     

  • NoobProtection players will now have an orange text above their head saying "NoobProtection"
    So that you no longer need to waste your ammo on supposedly hostile nakeds.

 

That's all for this time, there is more to come really soon!
