Read all of the rules carefully. Claiming ignorance of these rules is not allowed and will result in at least a 24-hour ban.
1 – Be respectful of others in the community; personal insults or verbal attacks outside of role-play (RP) are strictly prohibited!
2 – RP that violates the Twitch Terms of Service (ToS) and Rules of Conduct (RoC) is strictly prohibited:
3 – Any player caught harassing or bullying another player on the server, or outside of the server but in relation to their presence on the server, will be permanently removed and barred from the current and any future whitelists.
4 – Your first action in any disagreement should always be to try to RP it out. If that doesn’t work and you have a problem with another player, handle it privately, rather than having an open argument on the radio/in chat in the game or in a public forum like Discord or Twitch. If the player has broken a rule, file a report.
5 – Speaking poorly of others on streams, in chats, or elsewhere will not be tolerated. If you have an issue with someone, submit a report. You are representing TwitchRP when you’re on our servers.
6 – Do not message admins directly for general questions. We have a FAQ and a Help Center for reference also Discord channels (ie: #fan-general) where you can ask for assistance. You MAY message admins for issues you’d like kept private like giving personal info (email) or queries of a possible rule break where you worry the other party may see it in a general channel and attack you. To keep your anonymity you may then DM an admin for help.
7 – If an admin contacts you to discuss a timeout, the ban will not be lifted (regardless of its initial duration) until you have spoken to the admin. If an admin contacts you to discuss a rule break and you do not acknowledge the message with a response, you may be timed out until you do so.
8 – When you applied to TwitchRP, you signed up with Discord as part of the process. It’s required that you edit your nickname on the TwitchRP Discord server to “Steam Name You Applied With (Current Character Name)” so that it’s easier for people to contact you. Additionally, this will allow admins to find you quickly in the event a report is filed against you. If the admins are unable to contact you, we will have no other recourse than to take appropriate actions against you, as we will only have one side of the story. If your Steam name is the same as your character name, you must still follow this rule.
9 – You must stay in character at all times on TwitchRP servers. This means no going out-of-character (OOC) on the radio/in-game chats, as well. Message people on Steam, Discord, or other methods if you need to, but keep it all in-character (IC) when playing on TwitchRP.
10 – DO NOT broadcast music to the server using the internal VOIP unless agreed upon by all present parties.
These rules are for Rust only and are in addition to TwitchRP community Rules.
1 – ADULT THEMES/NUDITY: Do not make nudity the focus of your role-play; remember that there are people behind the characters you meet in-game who may have children in the room with them, or may not want to RP nudity. It is grossly inappropriate to run around asking other players to look at or touch your private parts; immediate action will be taken by the admin team if this happens.
2 – AGE REQUIREMENT: TwitchRP uses ESRB ratings as a guide to age requirements for our servers. For Rust you must be 18 years old to play.
3 – CHARACTER NAMES: You may not have a link in your name.
- Your steam name will be the name that shows when you talk so please make this appropriate as well. If the admins feel it isn’t you will be asked to change it and removed from the server until you do.
4 – Do not glitch any elements of the games or use exploits.
5 – The in-game report function is to be used for extreme cases only. All reports still need to be reported on this website. Please also add the time of the incident in the report with the timezone.
6 – Identifying players or structures through use of their nameplate is considered insufficient RP and is prohibited. This includes:
- using your HUD on a structure of any kind.
Community buildings are structures built for community RP, like schools, libraries, restaurants, saunas, etc. These buildings MAY NOT be used for a home; items, valuables, and tames should be stored elsewhere. ALL doors and chests must be unlocked to prevent raiding – if you leave locked storage in your community structure, you should expect that it will get broken into. Do not leave anything in your structure you would be sad to lose. Community buildings MUST have a yellow front door (in games that allow this) or clearly-marked billboards which say “COMMUNITY” (in games that don’t allow door painting) to be considered an RP structure. Your community building must be accessible by the community 24/7; you cannot claim a community building exemption for a structure in your base.
Admin-created builds for a season are ALWAYS neutral, community builds – even though the builds may be owned by the admin tribes, or have a locked door hiding an admin spawn/fast-travel location inside it.
7 – You may not raid a community building!
8 – If you are found abusing the system by creating a communal building as a front for something else, or by hiding a person or their belongings inside, the building is subject to demolition under an admin’s discretion.
9 – RP-PVP IS ALLOWED inside these buildings, as long as it does not damage the building. No explosives!
10 – There is NO text chat at all.
11 – Using external communication in RP is prohibited. In-game VOIP allows everyone to hear you.
12 – Do not kill sleepers immediately after restarts; allow them at the very least five minutes to log in before resuming combat. (This only applies to restarts! You ARE allowed to kill sleepers during raids!)
13 – You may fight over drops or land grab scenarios in a role-play manner. For example: If you arrive at a drop and someone is there, you can choose to challenge them on the drop. You must role-play the situation and make sure the other side understands that if you both fight over it someone may die.
You may fight over land, but you must RP the challenge. Any time you destroy someone’s structure, you must follow the rules of a raid, and leave a note. (See section on raiding below.)
NEW LIFE RULE
14 – Upon death, you are not allowed to visit the area containing your body for the next 15 minutes. There must be NO doubt here from other players. Any loot you may have dropped is now forfeit, up for grabs by anyone. Do not go back for it. Your home, however, stays in your possession. If you die in the vicinity of your home, respawn at the beach. You have no memory of your killer, or any event leading up to your death.
If you are accidentally killed in a PVE situation, you may (or may not) be invited back to the RP by the people involved. They may (or may not) return the items found on your body at that time. Do not presume you are invited back; wait for the invitation. EVERYONE around you at the time of your death must agree to you coming back.
15 – In any PVP scenario, whether a skirmish or a full-out war, you are not allowed to respawn and return to the fight until the immediate conflict is resolved. Returning to the battle is unrealistic, and both sides continually respawning means the fight would only end when players get tired, and not when one side gets the better of another.
16 – During an assault on a settlement, compound, or any other form of “base,” you are allowed to:make only one new entrance (which is also your exit).destroy only so much that is needed to plunder. You may not drop stolen goods on the floor to despawn; this is considered griefing. If you destroy containers, and do not need the contents inside, please put the loot into nearby containers. You are not allowed to destroy the entire base, or cause massive destruction to it.
17 – You MAY NOT grief someone by stealing their base. You must have a valid RP reason to do so. It better be good!
18 – RAID NOTES: During an offline raid on someone’s home, you must leave a note for the owner to find. The note must provide an actual RP trail for the victim to follow, including a hint as to the real culprit. There should be no doubt from the recipient.
If you were witnessed (i.e. chased off or caught) by a third party, you ARE STILL REQUIRED to leave a note.
Your note must lead to some form of RP for the victim. If it is deemed an insufficient or poor note, or you’ve simply blamed someone random, the admin team reserves the right to deem your raid as a rule break.
You MUST build a mailbox outside your home so that raiders have somewhere to leave their note.
Be aware that continuous raiding could lead to harassment. Be respectful of your fellow player and the time they put into the game. Role-play should always be a priority.
19 – Your tribe/clan is allowed one “main” base and one smaller, separate location (for example, a main RP base, and a smaller, secure build for PVP). If an admin feels your build is too big, expect a request to downsize. (See “Base Building and Defense”)
BASE BUILDING & DEFENSE
Though the mods we select for TwitchRP have low-poly counts, every single item placed on the server contributes to lag. To keep TRP running smoothly, please be aware of how much you are placing and building – a little can go a long way!
20 – FOUNDATIONS: Do not spam tool cabinets.
21 –The PvP zones ARE KoS.
22 –You cannot shoot into a zone, you must wait to engage until inside the zone.
23 – Upon leaving the zone, you are still subject to PvP for the next 15 minutes. This is in place for when you are engaged in PvP and if someone runs out of the zone to flee, it’s not an automatic get away free situation.
The admins have the final say in any situation, and all rules are subject to change. When the admins review a situation, more than one opinion is used.
