I have lately been considering doing an RCON client for rust.
Mostly because i find there is a few things missing from rusty and rustAdmin. Dont get me wrong these are both great tools but they seem more aimed towards smaller servers.
Due to this i want to make a system that is great both for large and small servers.
I talked about doing this quite a while back but never got to it until now
But before i go and just create something i would love input from the community!
What i have planned so far is roughly this
There is multiple modes to the software, “Server”, “Client” and “Stand Alone”
If you are running a big server and have a lot of users you could run the server mode, configure it and add users with permissions (Eg select what they can and can not do!)
It will also be possible to add some “chat” commands to your server (Eg you could setup a command if a user writes “!rules” the server responds with a predefined text)
You can change the basic look of the server and clients (CUstom server logo when login in and some other astetics to make it look more integrated into your server style)
This is used for staff members to login to the server with a pre defined username and password
Stand Alone Mode
IF you are running a smaller server or simply want a “normal” RCON client this is exactly that
It packs the features of the Server Mode into a standalone client without features like permission setting etc.
We are also thinking about letting people define custom styles from a file if you would like to do so. (Based on CSS)
All of this with proper documentation and support from us of course!
Now my question is this:
Is this something you would use?
Would you like other features, if so what features?
(Updated mindmap is here)
Hopefully i can get Frank Walls to help me out with the graphics so we can get the look to be as professional as our last project the rust building planner!
