Rust Server - Australia

#1 Edited by CharlieBoom (36 posts) -

UPDATE:

Hey there duders, I really can't recommend rust at the moment. I'm going to hang back on having a server until it's advanced a few more patches.

Since starting the server, I've spent a good portion of my free time fixing it, or responding to the requests from players.

BUT the duders are playing on the new Texas based one below, I suggest heading there if you want to play with fellow bombers.

net.connect 173.208.16.210:28085

I mentioned this in another thread, but I set up a server. - It’s in Australia.

EDIT: It seems like a lot of people in the US outside of Australia/NZ have been having a tough time recently. I'd recommend picking a server closer to home. Maybe try and ping 119.252.190.249 to see what kind of lag you'll be dealing with.

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

net.connect 119.252.190.249:29035

BOOM! You should be in.

Want to share doors with your fellow duder? Type /share “Player Name” into chat.

For help, type /help into chat.

If you're starting out and want a hand, let me or "Akira" know. We've even got spare rooms floating around. Apart from the ones that got raided D:

Oh, I guess I should be bumping this other than the other thread. Go join this guys! I did terrible today, but my mountain fortress is still in the making.

Made some progress over the weekend

Had some fun! Thanks to the duders who came along this weekend.

Thanks a lot. Posting here for a bump.

Looks like the wild wild west there. I really need to find someone to buy me this game (or get money and buy it myself!)

Uh oh. Potential server wipe. One of the comments says " incompatibility with oxide!!!!" so I'm not sure what the state of the GB server is, I couldn't get in just now.

#7 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

@thesoutherndandy: They did a bug update last night or this morning I believe. Nothing that should wipe the server, right?

#8 Posted by CharlieBoom (36 posts) -

Well that's just inconvenient! - At work at the moment, will investigate in a couple of hours on lunch and update you on what's happening.

@sexytoad I hope not duder! But I won't know until I poke around the guts of the server.

@thesoutherndandy :O Only one way to find out.

Thanks for your patience duders. This server stuff is all kinds of weird, ftp'in in lua scripts, all kinds of versions...

#9 Posted by CharlieBoom (36 posts) -

And it's up again!

And I'm afraid that all the stuff still seems to be there exactly as you left it, so unfortunately @sexytoad's Mountain fortress is still a threat.

#10 Posted by development (2315 posts) -

Yeah! I wasn't killed yet. I suppose no one's found my sleeping hole. I'll be on later probably.

#11 Posted by development (2315 posts) -

I just tried joining (from NY) and it said "Connecting" for about five minutes until I gave up. I'm trying again... anyone else having problems connecting? It says 2 people are in-game, but that number on the server list seems to be kinda unreliable.

@charlieboom:

I got banned for using Japanese characters in my name I think. Now I can't get in. How long does that last?

#13 Edited by orlandodoom (67 posts) -

I too am trying to get in from NY with no luck.

Correction, I got in, but I'm now stuck in my house and cannot open any doors or storage boxes. Nor can I craft or eat.

#14 Edited by DamnBoxes (11 posts) -

Officially terrified to hop back on tonight only to discover my character, reborn, sans clothes, and items. Pray for DamnBoxes, duders.

EDIT: Judging by the pics above, my unconscious body is on the top floor of one'uh @charlieboom's awesome buildings.

#15 Posted by orlandodoom (67 posts) -

server crashed out me thinks.

what am I to do with the rest of my sick day!?

I'm snowed in.

#16 Edited by CharlieBoom (36 posts) -

Hey duders - restarting the servers, steam had some windy-pops for a moment there, but it's up now.

#17 Posted by orlandodoom (67 posts) -

So thoughts about moving to a more centralized server?

Can anyone host in say, Asia or Europe?


I don't want to screw our gracious Aussie hosts, but the lag can be pretty unbearable.

This is a really good idea! - I don't want you duders to have a bad experience, and the overwhelming feedback so far seems to be that this server isn't working for you guys.

I decided to buy the game on a random whim but I cant seem to do anything on the server. I cant interact or even see my hands. Any idea whats up?

Hey Pazy, the US is having a real tough time connecting to Australia today - I've edited my first post to reflect it.

I guess I can add the UK to that list too! - I just restarted the server again. Do you know what kind of ping you have? I just tried connecting to a US server, and the connection timed out for me too.

I seem to have a ping of about 300-350, using ingame and command line. Though my connection never times out instead I connect but I cant interact and I have no item/hands on show. I connected to an offical UK server and it worked fine.

@pazy The server is literally on the opposite side of the planet.

Take the time to read threads before you post. We're well aware of the lag issue and are looking into a solution.

In the meantime, hang tight, us GB brothers and sisters will reunite again.

I saw this thread earlier. I'm not sure if he's planning to have this public, or just us duders. But it's worth a shot.

I was aware of the lag issue but I didnt know if the issue I was having was related. I have only just purchased the game so it seemed better to ask than assume. I know now, thanks Charlie Boom, so Im waiting for an improvement.

Hey guys!

As Sexy Toad mentioned another duder has set up their own server, might be best to check that out.

There are problems with sending ones and zeros to the other side of the world, but I completely understand where you're coming from @pazy, it's frustrating.

The only other thing I haven't tried is a server wipe. It's working fine for us here, but not for you guys it seems.

#28 Posted by orlandodoom (67 posts) -

Yeah, there's one based out of Texas.

Plenty of people playing.

net.connect 173.208.16.210:28085

Give it a shot guys!

meh, everyone on the aussie server that ive encountered have been super nice. thanks a lot for hosting, charlie

#30 Posted by CharlieBoom (36 posts) -

You're very welcome @biscuitsandtim - since turning it into a Vanilla server with no mods, it's fostered a really nice community of players from Australia and beyond. I'm going to keep it going.

Recently I've just been checking in every so often, going invisible and seeing what people have built. I'll start playing again after the next wipe.
