Admin Instructions
Upon logging into the server for the first time, use console and log into RCON. then write /setmasteradmin
You now are a master admin and can promote anybody to an admin, and give them certain permissions. Admin flag names are above in the admin commands.

To give a player permissions, first promote them to an admin /addadmin <playername
You can now assign flags to them, if i wanted that admin to only have the ability to kick players, i would do /addflag “adminname” “CanKick”
If you want to give EVERY PERMISSION to an admin write /addflag “adminname” “all”

grats on the release i’m sure most server providers will jump on this.

note you guys are doing good. for this game not liking modders.

Thanks. Also if anyone has any requests for mod improvements let me know. A group system and door sharing will be something I look forward to implementing

I know this is going to sound super fucking lame but I’m glad the modding community is finally doing stuff. I can’t wait for a RP type mod to come around that gives actual purpose to do things.

i’d like see a Option for a Starter set or. No decay option for small servers.

such as a bow/20 Arrows , Campfire , 20 wood. 5 raw chicken & a stone hatchet. but no Decay & a Notice/MOTD were major things alot wanted. i’m assuming the no decay wont ever be found.

Notices, MOTD and configurable starter kits is something I can do next.

It’s out, wow! I’m really pumped about the sorts of tools this mod makes available to admins! One request I have is the ability to turn individual parts off in a config file because I am a huge jerk who wants his players to be lost and adrift with no in-game coordinate system.

Could you publish the code on git ?

Add configurable starter kits, and I’m sold.

You can add it for yourself.
Also. Is there a alternative download ?

would rather not waste my time doing so, don’t have any git tools on my computer and don’t use it anymore.

@CanVox: next few updates when i make a config file to tweak settings ill be sure to have a boolean for every command!

cant wait i do hope a decay option can be added as a seprate part later on to stop decay.

Hello I downloaded your mod command “/history” does not work, I would also change the title of any software mods it takes to decompile or send me the source MP thank you!

Join the Rust++ forums for more information!

ill look into that.

my dev server isnt responding at the moment so im coding blindly. but next release will feature everything configurable in a text file. also will include starter kit and automatic server notices (both configurable!)

xEnt look on steam chat.

xEnt22 How change the file “Rust++_mod” with what software?

can you do a mod for something that shows peoples names from farther away than 2 feet? or maybe show names at all times.

What language is that written in anyways ?! If you don’t provide anything, people won’t install it.
How can I know you didn’t put some bad code inw ho gives you full access.
So either you share the code with us, or you name the language and how to decompile/recompile it for new users.

To be honest, someone that would find usage out of the code, would also know how to decompile it. if nobody wants to install it that’s they’re fault. someone can decompile and git it if they like. i’m not in the mood to constantly update the source everytime i make changes.

@Jarhead59: you cant change the Rust++ mod file, its not a configurable file, i have one coming soon.

written in C# btw
