0. DO NOT TELEPORT OFF CARGO SHIP!!!!
You will be stuck in a death-loop and will have to reconnect.
1. ASSIMILATION PROTOCOL
If the admins decide that you do not mesh well within our community, the best thing for the community is to remove you from it. While you may not be breaking any particular rules, if we decide that you are not acclimating into our community, you are gone. Finished. Donator or not. Basically, don't be a dick.
2. COMPOUNDS & BASES ARE TO BE NO BIGGER THAN 2 MAP GRID SPACES
If you are wanting more than one base, one of the bases can be the 2 grid space limit, the rest cannot be bigger than 1 grid space. This also means that if your clan base is 2 grid spaces, you cannot build another base that is 2 grid spaces. If you want your own separate base, it cannot be bigger than 1 grid space. If you make a base that is 2 grid spaces wide, you must also fully TC the area so that new players don't spawn in it. If your base is 2 grids, external TCs are prohibited.
3. RULE 2 APPLIES FOR QUARRY AND PUMPJACK SETUPS
They cannot be bigger than 2 grid spaces. Those who do not follow the last two rules will have their base adjusted to fit it. When purge is active, you can do whatever you want with your base. Base size limits are exempt for purge.
4. AUTO-TURRETS & SAM SITE ACTIVITY
Auto Turrets do not do damage to players and may be placed within a compound. However, If turrets are filled with Incendiary Ammo before Purge, it will be destroyed by an Admin.
Trumpet turrets are allowed at all times.
Sam Sites are allowed to be placed, but are NOT TO BE LOADED before Purge. Any loaded SAM Sites will be destroyed immediately.
5. KEEP SALT TO A BARE MINIMUM
This means that there is to be no serious toxicity towards any other player in any OzRust Servers or the Discord. Doing so will result in a mute or ban depending on the severity. If there is a player you have to pick a bone with, a simple PM to them in Discord will do. Light banter is allowed.
6. DO NOT BE DISRESPECTFUL OR OFFENSIVE TO ANYONE
This includes both players and staff members. Racist, Sexist, Homophobic or hate speech of any kind will not be tolerated. Doing so will result in a mute or ban, depending on the severity, and if done repeatedly, a permanent ban.
7. DO NOT HAVE ANY RACIST OR OFFENSIVE NAMES AS YOUR STEAM OR DISCORD USERNAME
If you do, you will be warned to change it. If you do not change it, it will result in a kick.
8. DO NOT TROLL
We do not tolerate any trolls or people bending the rules.
9. DO NOT GIVE OUT FALSE INFORMATION
Doing so will result in a mute.
10. DO NOT SPAM
This includes constant messages that do not deliver a reasonable purpose. Please try to refrain from using caps all the time.
11. NO PUBLIC NSFW CONTENT
An exception to this rule is if an artwork is hand-drawn. Under no circumstances should NSFW photos be put on signs using /sil in public. This includes Discord profile pictures. That said, you may have NSFW content in your base, as long as it complies with the rules.
12. DO NOT INVITE UNOFFICIAL BOTS TO THE DISCORD SERVER WITHOUT ADMINISTRATIVE APPROVAL
Any bots that are found will be banned without warning, as will the player who invited it.
13. DO NOT PERFORM OR PROMOTE THE INTENTIONAL USE OF GLITCHES, HACKS, BUGS OR ANY OTHER EXPLOITS
This is also included within Discord. Doing so will result in a 24 hour ban.
14. DO NOT ARGUE WITH OR LIE TO STAFF
This will not be tolerated and you will be punished if you are found to be lying. Staff decisions are final, so do not complain.
15. THIS IS A PVE SERVER. RAIDING AND KILLING HAVE BEEN BLOCKED BY THE SERVER
Part 1. However, if you leave your doors wide open or windows insecure and things gets looted, nothing can be done about that. Please make sure you lock your belongings with a code lock or key lock, and are completely secured via your Tool Cupboard Coverage before going offline.
Part 2. OzRust has Random Spawn NPC Raidable Bases. Some of which are PVP. Check on the map before you enter a Raidable to make sure you are up for the challenge.
16. WHEN USING THE IN-GAME COMMAND /REPORT
Please open a ticket in the Discord outlining extra details
17. DO NOT GRIEF
Anyone who builds walls around or blocks someone's base in, TC's it, blocks the doors, or griefs in any form, is considered malicious and will result in a ban on all servers. Any abuse towards players or staff will be dealt with a ban. This includes placing landmines around with the intent of killing players before purge. This also includes making bases that are purposely built to cause other players lag.
18. DO NOT BLOCK ACCESS TO STATIC QUARRIES OR PUMPJACKS
Static Quarries or Pumpjacks are the ones built into the map. If you block in a static quarry so other players cannot access it, your buildings will be removed so it is accessible. A warning will be left with the player who blocked it in. Further blockage of these Quarries will result in a 24 hour ban.
19. DO NOT MODIFY OR USE SYNCPIPES ON STATIC QUARRIES OR PUMPJACKS BUILT INTO THE MAP, OR ANY OTHER THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU OR A TEAMMATE/CLANMATE
Doing so will result in a ban.
20. DO NOT REQUEST THAT A BASE WHICH IS "TOO CLOSE" TO YOU, BE REMOVED
If you want to secure your area, make sure to TC it. Otherwise, it is fair game. If a player builds maliciously around you (placing TCs all around your base), that is griefing and a staff member should be notified through the #ticket-support system in Discord.
21. BUILDING WALLS AROUND MONUMENTS/WALLING OF MOUNMENTS SO OTHER PLAYERS CANNOT ENTER IS NOT ALLOWED
IF YOU DO THIS, YOUR STRUCTURE WILL BE REMOVED WITHOUT WARNING. This includes building around cave entrances (building inside of caves in the buildable area is fine).
22. NO IMPERSONATION
This means non staff members cannot claim to have the staff rank, or pretend to be a staff member (changing their steam name). Ordinary members cannot claim to be another user either.
23. ADMINS CANNOT DO SPECIAL FAVOURS
PART 1. If you die, that's tough, its a part of the game. We cannot help you get your stuff back. Backpacks last for a while so you will have plenty of time to get your things. Adding onto this, if you lose your things by dying to a bug or glitch, we cannot give you your items back.
PART 2. If you lose in-game items, Server Reward Points, Quarry or Pumpjack Levels etc, due to an unexpected crash or a plugin issue, please head directly to the discord and open a ticket in the #ticket-support section so the issue will be investigated ASAP. A refund of Server Rewards points or Quarry or Pumpjacks only might be possible if you can supply sufficient proof, but it is not Guaranteed.
24. STOLEN LOOT
We can't do anything if any items or locked crates are stolen from you. It’s unfortunate, but you have to deal with it. However, if we start to receive complaints of people who repeatedly steal loot and become toxic in the process, this will be considered disrupting the community space and will be punished accordingly.
25. NO TRAP BASES DURING PVE
If you want to make one for purge, make sure it is locked up so no one can enter.
Death-runs and mazes are allowed REGARDING they have a Warning Sign on them.
26. DO NOT ADVERTISE
This includes promoting other Rust servers in forms of telling people to join, and sending links to other communities on OzRust servers.
27. NO ONE IS SAFE DURING PURGE
On the last night before Wipe, the whole server will be affected by PvP and raiding.
