Figured I'd check as an avid Bomber. Getting real tired of gathering just enough supplies to really get going only to get shot by some dickhead.

Willing to just group up on other servers as well.

#2 Posted by FlipperDesert (2090 posts) -

I'd be into this, need an excuse to try the game out proper and like, not die.

#3 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

I really would enjoy a GiantBomb exclusive server. We would be able to play quite a bit and not die by other's hands.

Hey duders, I've started a server, it's in Australia, so the ping might be a bit extreme for you, but you're welcome to join.

119.252.190.249:29035

And I'm http://steamcommunity.com/id/CharlieBoom

EDIT:

To connect press F1 to get the console up and plop this in.

net.connect 119.252.190.249:29035

I told myself I wouldn't buy into another early access game unless there was some GB duders running a server for Rust...dang

Sweet a duder server sounds great.

@charlieboom: I was unable to connect from over here in Washington, USA.

#9 Edited by Vermisean (154 posts) -

I think I need a Bomber server to get back into this. I hope I can get on there (at work now, but I will try when I get home).

and nevermind. Fixed the issue somehow. The server works and I have decent ping from all the way in WA. So it should work for everyone else

#11 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3881 posts) -

I'm on @charlieboom's server from canada and it seems to be running pretty well. Get on here duders!

#12 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

I just spent the last 2 or so hours on here. I did terrible, the game is really rough on you. I guess my dreams of a mountain fortress has to wait for now.

#13 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3881 posts) -

@sexytoad Once you find us at the compound things will get better. We will make the wilderness our bizitch. @charlieboom's houses are sweet.

#14 Posted by cassus (382 posts) -

Any europeans tried to connect to any of the servers mentioned? How is your ping? Considering buying the game, but really don't want to play this solo. Seems like absolutely no fun what so ever.

#15 Posted by SinGulaR (2326 posts) -

@cassus: I connected from Germany. Ran fine.

#16 Edited by cassus (382 posts) -

@singular: Thanks. I might give it a stab then.

I hope they make some hunger games maps for this. It's awesome in Minecraft, probably amazing in Rust which has far better combat, from what I've seen.

#17 Posted by CharlieBoom (36 posts) -

Howdy Duders!

Off to a good start so far! I can (and would like to) give a few duders some controls to keep the server in check. If you're in a timezone that isn't Australian evenings, will be playing a bit and feel like helping, PM me.

I'll keep an eye out! The mod community is pumping out content, and the game is being updated frequently.

If you're interested to watch what's coming up, the devs share a trello board over here.

I might have a server for you USterners out there if you have trouble with the Australian one. Wouldn't want to split the community up, though, so only switch if you're having a lot of lag trouble with CharlieBoom's. Plus, it won't be up for a week or two. Just throwin' that out there.

edit: Sent you an invite, @charlieboom. How do you join a server with just an IP address? Can't figure it out, so I'll wait for you to accept my friend request.

#19 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

@development: You start the game like usual. Then click F1 to open up the console and type 'net.connect 119.252.190.249:29035'

That's funny you mention hunger games, every day there's an airdrop you can see from pretty far away that results in a cornucopia-esque mad rush for supplies that more then likely ends with a lot of death. We're a lot friendlier on the GB server.

I've been pretending to be friendly. As soon as my mountain fortress goes up, you will all go down. MWAHAHAH

I'm going to start stockpiling explosives. I will bring your monument to tyranny down around you.

Had some good fun with you duders today. Will be back on tomorrow probably. Let's see if I can't get killed in my sleep...

#25 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

My mountain fortress is still underways. Today I had the bright idea of adventuring far out. I got killed by a zombie and spent the day searching for my things that I never found. Such is the game of Rust.

#26 Edited by CharlieBoom (36 posts) -

First raids have started! Ladders and pillars springing up. We'll try to turn ours into objets d'art.

#27 Edited by orlandodoom (67 posts) -

Digging this server a lot. Thanks guys.

Though is it down today for some reason?

EDIT: seems there was an update.

#28 Posted by development (2372 posts) -

@charlieboom: Do you need to update the server or something?

#29 Edited by orlandodoom (67 posts) -

I would imagine so. I booted the game up, and there are only a handful of servers that are up.

EDIT: http://playrust.com/post-dev-days-security-patch/#comments

Well, it seems the new patch borks a lot of stuff. Not sure if servers need to be updated or if the patch just fucked up the login process.

#30 Posted by poperamone (78 posts) -

hey guys, is it not up?

#31 Posted by DamnBoxes (11 posts) -

@poperamone: It appears that way.

In any case, is this Aussie server going to be the long-term solution for us duders?

#32 Edited by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

A new update was pushed for Rust, so we just need to wait for @charlieboom.

@poperamone: It appears that way.

Sure looks that way! The Australian server does bring lag issues often, but I think it works great for the time being if no one else makes one.

#33 Posted by CharlieBoom (36 posts) -

Hey duders! Back up, that update got pushed at 2am my time, there's another thread in the rust forums that I've been updating.

#34 Edited by DamnBoxes (11 posts) -

King among men, that @charlieboom character. Thanks buddy.

Sidenote: If anyone sees an unconscious body on the top floor of their beautiful wooden establishment, please, don't harm me. I will be a productive member of society.

#35 Edited by TheSouthernDandy (3881 posts) -

Welp some douche broke in killed me and stole a bunch of stuff while I was logged out. Then as I was running around trying to find more crap some alert on my computer alttabbed me out right near a zombie and I died. Then as I was trying to find that stuff I started lagging and died again. Then I was trying to find other stuff lag killed me again, this time it was bears.

In short, my feeling right now is Rust can bite me.

#36 Edited by FrozenTauntaun (19 posts) -

I have a new Rust server that is fresh and low population at the moment. I can help out any new players and would love to play with some bombers.

server is 216.245.211.218:28095 and I'm Frozen Tauntaun on steam

You can hit F1 then type net.connect 216.245.211.218:28095

#37 Posted by orlandodoom (67 posts) -

@frozentauntaun: so rather than try and split the population, why not join the already established GB server?

net.connect 173.208.16.210:28085
