TL;DR: short and blunt summary of the rules

  1. By playing on our server you accept its Terms and Conditions in full. Ignorance of the rules does not extempt you from having to obey them.
  2. This is a privately own server, maintained with  private funds, run as a hobby – ability to play on it is a priviledge. We do our best to let our players have great time – we, however, are not required to fulfill anyones requests.
  3. Using forbidden third party software (cheats) = permban with no appeal option + report to Facepunch (potential Steam game ban) + report to VAC (potential VAC Steam ban).
  4. Exploiting any game bugs = kick, temporary ban or permban (depending on the scale of offense)
  5. Keep it civil, act like an adult. Cursing on chat, insults, persistent, widespread irksomeness towards other players, griefing in any form will all get you kicked or banned.
  6. Propagating Nazi, fascist or communist ideologies in any form is strictly forbidden and will result in kick or ban.
  7. It is forbidden to impersonate other players, especially administrators. Get caught = get permbanned.
  8. It is forbidden to promote other servers and/or websites not related to RustyRock. It is, however, allowed to discuss other game servers as long as the discussion is kept in a non-promotional form.
  9. Live and let live – build a nice atmosphere together, don’t be toxic. Yeah, we know RUST is not The Sims. However, whether new players will feel good on the server and decide to stay for longer is up to everybody’s approach. Killing newbies and newcomers gains you nothing, helping them keeps the server population high.
  10. Doxing, stalking and any other acts of invating player’s personal lives is strictly forbidden. Any confirmed report of such behavior equals permanent ban for the offender.
  11. The only allowed language in global server chat is English and Polish.
  12. It is forbidden to enclose with walls/structures any kind of monuments in game, also mining quary, shops and custom builds made by RustyRock staff that are visibly marked as custom monuments. Violating this rule will result in a complete removal of such structures or, in case of repeating offence, ban.

3. Server wipes

  1. The server, by default, function in a two week cycle in which the wipe takes place , and along with the release of a new RUST update, i.e. usually on the first Thursday of the month. Such two week wipe is always a full wipe, i.e. reset/change of the map and reset of the blueprints learned by the players. We also do a week wipe of the map.
  2. Depending on situation, we anticipate the possibility to do the map wipe 2 weeks after the full wipe. We will announce such decision at least 3 days in advance.
  3. An unexpected wipe may occur in case of serious problems related to e.g. damaged map file. The administration does not bear any responsibility for potential problems that could arise in case of such wipe.

4.3. Clans

  1. The server utilizes “Clans” plugin that helps players manage their clan. By clan, we mean any players affiliated under common name by using said plugin.
  2. In special cases, any three or more people not affiliated by using said plugin, doing common activity, may be considered a “clan”.
  3. The limit of the number of people in a single clan is set by the configuration of “Clans” plugin and equals five people.
  4. In cases of doubt (e.g. divergent information), limit set in “Clans” plugins shall be treated as current and obligatory.
  5. It’s allowed for different clans to cooperate, in any scope.
  6. Please be reasonable when it comes to online combat/raids – raiding bases or engaging in combat while in a group larger than clans current limit may be interpreted as spoiling other players’ game and result in administration intervention. This, of course, does not apply to situations where the combat takes place online, with a relative balance of power.
  7. It is forbidden to create complexes of bases of clans that are in alliance/cooperation. Bases of two different clans that are cooperating should be build in distance from each other that is large enough so that a single base can be attacked without the need to engage defensive systems of the other base. As a safe distance we consider the width of a single map sector.
  8. Establishing a clan advantage on the server is not a basis for using it in order to repeatedly make other players’ life difficult.
