    Hello forum, I have had a few Ideas about how to make the server more enjoyable and figured I'd share them here.

    Primarily, I think that the hardcore day night cycle has lived its course on the server, most hardcore elements have been removed, and quite frankly its a nuisance to players who do not hack and abide by the rules. Because not changing your gamma is against the rules, players who are playing fairly are completely unable to play at night, while hackers/rule breakers have free reign to play. This puts people who I feel we should be catering the server towards (the legit players) at a disadvantage.


    A solution to this, would be to add a /vote day plugin to the server. I think this would dramatically increase the quality of the server.

    Another idea I had, was to allow non-staff members to start a vote to start hunger games, or start the hunger games lobby themselves. Hunger games is a very cool and unique feature on this server, but to only be able to play it when staff sets it up is not ideal.

    Simpy giving the perms of staff members for hunger games to regular players would not work, as staff members can force start hunger games; however if it is possible to allow them to create ONLY the lobby, and allow it to start naturally after reaching 15 players that would make the server a lot more fun (for me at least.)

    Ill throw some polls on here, feel free to vote and share your opinions.


    Edit: I cant seem to post two polls on a single post, I'll just put the day & night cycle poll on here, and if responses are good I'll make a new post for the hunger games idea.

    No. I totally disagree. We dont need any more control plugins. Some of us like the night.

    Interesting opinion Plumis.

    I don't feel this is a control plugin, as it is a VOTE, people don't need to vote for day, they can vote for it to remain night.

    Secondly, i'm curious what exactly you like about night? Because in Rust's semi-broken state, it is absolutely, 100% unplayable (aside from sitting in your house, or using a torch) during the night. The only way you are able to play rust and enjoy it like you do during the day, is to alter your gamma (against the servers rules), or play with a hacked client.

    I'm not discounting your opinion, as its certainly valid; I'm just curious if you could elaborate why exactly you feel that way.

    tl;dr,
    a.) change server rules so gamma is allowed
    b.) add plugin to vote for day
    c.) ?

    night is what makes rust so realistic. it gives you that spooking feeling that you can die any minute and not even notice anything.

    I actually agree with the Hunger Games idea , I would love too be able too play Hunger games without having too wait for an admin , But the only problem might be hackers i guess ? If you could find a way too make sure theres no hackers in Hunger Games lobby's i think that would be a great idea too be honest.
