RULE # 1 NEWBIES::: Be friendly and open to help New players as much as they want. If it is right after the wipe or right before the next one I still expect new players to the server to be helped by current players. It is the main goal of this server to help new players get a start and to learn to love it in their own way.
RULE # 2 RAIDING:::: NO RAIDING DURING THE FIRST 7 DAYS AFTER THE WIPE. BUILD AND LIVE IN PEACE. PVP IS ALLOWED ONLY IN MONUMENTS AND WILDERNESS AREAS AWAY FROM BASES, ROADS, AND SAFE ZONES/COMMUNITY AREAS DURING THE FIRST WEEK. PLEASE NO KOS, AND IN FACT IT IS PREFERRED THAT YOU NEVER USE KOS (kill on sight) EXCEPT IN LIVE RAIDS WITH KNOWN OPPONENTS. BUT IF YOUR BASE IS ATTACKED DURING THE FIRST WEEK YOU CAN PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR BASE, BUT NO SAMS AND TURRETS. (Turrets can be used inside of your buildings during the first week, but not outside) IF YOU KNOW WHO ATTACKED DURING THAT FIRST WEEK PLEASE REPORT THEM TO THE ADMINS MAILBOX AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER. NO RAIDING OR PVP IS EVER ALLOWED IN SAFE ZONES.
RULE # 3 No killing (PVP) on roads or at loot piles on roads (except for Scientists and other NPC's). PVP is not limited in Monuments, and wilderness areas but still prefer no KOS. If you build your base on the road you are not protected, but people on the road at your base ARE PROTECTED.
RULE # 4 Solo, Duo or Trio groups ONLY, no clans please.
RULE # 5 SAFE ZONES/COMMUNITY CENTERS::: Players may build a small base inside the Safe Zone(s) if you ARE NOT GOING to participate in raiding and do not want to be raided. THE SAFE ZONE IS NOT A HIDE OUT OR A PLACE TO HIDE YOUR RAIDING STASH. It is a community of builders, farmers, gatherers, explorers and lovers. NO WEAPONS on your tool belt inside the Admin safe zones/Community Centers, but you may have a weapon and ammo for self protection on you but NOT in you tool belt. (These are the same rules that apply at the games NPC outpost except that you can also chose to live and sleep at Safe Zones). NO TURRETS OR SAMS IN SAFE ZONE OTHER THAN THOSE MANAGED BY THE ADMINS AS PEACE KEEPERS. ANY "TOOL" THAT CAN KILL A HUMAN WILL CAUSE YOU TO BE SHOT BY THE TURRETS. KEEP THEM OFF OF YOUR TOOL BELT. IF AN NPC, (SCIENTIST, BEAR, WOLF) GETS INSIDE SAFE ZONE CHAT FOR AN ADMIN TO HELP. IF YOU TRY TO KILL IT YOURSELF THE TURRETS WILL TAKE YOU OUT INSTEAD OF THE NPC. THE SAFE ZONE IS JUST THAT --- SAFE!!!! RESPECT IT.
NEW RULES ABOUT LIVING IN SAFE ZONE::::: YOUR BASE IN THE SAFE ZONE MUST HAVE A WOODEN SIGN ON THE OUTSIDE AS TO WHO THE BASE BELONGS TO (all authorized members), YOUR TC AND CHESTS CAN NOT HAVE LOCKS SO THE ADMIN CAN INSPECT AS NECESSARY. YOU, OF COURSE, CAN LOCK ANY DOORS, BUT SINCE RAIDING IS NOT ALLOWED IN THE SAFE ZONE YOU HAVE NO REASON TO LOCK YOUR TC OR CHESTS. LOCKS WILL BE REMOVED OR CHESTS DISTROYED IF IN NON COMPLIANCE. ONLY ADMINS WILL HAVE ACCESS TO INSPECT YOUR STORAGE. I AM SORRY THAT THIS HAS BECOME NECESSARY!!! VENDING MACHINES IN THE SAFE ZONE CAN ONLY SELL ITEMS YOU RECEIVED FROM CRAFTING, MINING, OR EARNED FROM LOOTING BARRELS AND SMASHING ROADSIDE BOXES. NO ITEMS FROM RAIDS CAN BE STORED IN OR SOLD IN SAFE ZONE VENDING MACHINES, OR IN SAFE ZONE BASES. NO ROCKETS OR EXPLOSIVES CAN BE OWNED, SOLD OR MANUFACTURED INSIDE OF THE SAFE ZONE. ALSO NO SALE OF GUNS, AMMO AND/OR EXPLOSIVES IN VENDING MACHINES INSIDE SAFE ZONE.
LAST WORD SAFE ZONES:: If you are reported doing anything against the rules you will be warned and then banned. IF YOU DECIDE TO BE A RAIDER THEN CLOSE YOUR SAFE ZONE BASE AND BUILD ELSEWHERE.
RULE # 6 THIS SERVER IS A BE KIND TO NEWBIES PLACE. BE HELPFUL, NOT HATEFUL. WHEN RAIDING DOES START DO NOT PICK ON THE WEAKER PLAYERS JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN BEAT THEM.... BE NICE EVEN IN RAIDING. NO HATE SPEECH, SIGNS OR TEXT WILL BE ALLOWED. RAIDING IS FOR STEALING SOMEONES STUFF AND PROVING YOUR THE BIG MAN IN TOWN. BUT IT'S NOT FOR RUINING THEIR FUN. DO NOT KILL THEM IF THEY ARE SLEEPING DURING THE RAID (unless accidental) AND DO NOT LOCK THEM IN OR OUT OF THEIR BASE. ALLOW THEM TO START OVER. TAKE THEIR LOOT AND MOVE ON. DON'T BE MEAN ! OH, AND NO CALLING ME "GAY".......
I want everyone to feel welcomed and have a lot of fun. I promise you no admin will ever be a raider, and will only kill when attacked. Please help out New Players as much as you can and as much as they would like. Rust is a rough place to live but it does not have to be a mean place to play. BE NICE TO EACH OTHER!!!! AGAIN, NO DICKHEADS ALLOWED!!!
When I am online say hi and ask for help. There are other monitors and admins also and we will always do our best to make this a fun place to play.
