Drug Business

The Drug Business plugin allows players to buy Weed and Coca seeds, which can then be planted and grown by the player. To buy the seeds, the player has to find a VPN. They can be found from various loot sources. Once you have a VPN, put it in your hotbar, go to any computer terminal and sit down. The drug purchase screen will open up. Seeds are purchased with eco coins.

Click on the Order button for the seeds you want. To see where the dealer is that buys the drugs, click on Locate. The dealer is ONLY active from 9pm until 5am. Afterall, drug dealing isn’t something to be done in the daylight!

Once you’ve clicked on order, you can change the quantity on the next screen by clicking on the number in the Quantity column and typing in the new quantity. Click on Purchase to buy the seeds.

You will then get a notification that the seeds are on their way. They will be delivered by drone and will be dropped directly onto your computer desk. If your computer is inside, the seeds will be dropped on the roof above the computer. It is recommended that if your computer is inside, that you go outside and watch for the done. The package will look like a wrapped package. Open the package and your seeds will be inside.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have trees/powerlines or other obstructions above your base, this may interfere with the delivery of your seeds. You may want to have a dedicated outdoor computer station for the delivery of the seeds.

Once you’ve grown the plants, go to a T3 Workbench to process Weed and type /process.

To process Coca leaves into Cocaine, you need to go to a mixing table and type /process.

Once you’ve crafted your drugs, go to the dealer between the hours of 9pm and 5am (See the note above about using “Locate”). Once at the dealer, interact with him (Don’t worry about the “Invite” prompt. It’s a Rust thing) to sell your weed or cocaine.

A new domain name and a partial rebranding!

It’s a known fact that shorter domain names are preferred. It’s easier for users to remember and just looks better. A shorter community name allows for more information in a game server name, which, if you’ve been playing online games for any length of time, you know it’s an important place to highlight your server’s most desirable server features!

So, with that in mind, I have registered rustyog.net (Short for Rusty Old Gamers – Duh!). The new domain can be used immediately and rustyoldgamers.net will forward to rustyog.net The old domain will remain registered until it’s current period ends. All subdomains, such as link.rustyoldgamers.net or donate. rustyoldgamers.net should seamlessly forward to the new domain. Due to the way domain changes propagate through the internet, it IS possible some of you may have some temporary issues accessing the website. I wouldn’t expect that to last more than 2 days at the most. If you get any messages about out website being unsecure, you can safely ignore that. If you go to any rustyoldgamers.net URLs and it doesn’t display properly, just change it to rustyog.net.

The servers will have their names shortened to identify as “RustyOG” servers soon. Don’t worry. It’s the same old servers with a shorter name!

Comparing our Rust servers

We have two different Rust servers. One is a Biweekly wipe server and the other is a Monthly wipe server. While sharing many of the same plugins, these two servers are different playstyles. I will attempt to give a good comparison of these servers below.

VIP/Economics/In-Game Shop

Our Biweekly server is set up to give VIP access. Anyone who donates gets VIP status and coins to use in the in-game shop. The coins never wipe or expire. Killing zombies, completing monuments, destroying Bradley, etc all gives economics coins. There are various other ways to get coins each month and even daily. These coins can be used in the in-game shop accessed with the /shop command. VIP gives certain perks to players. Those perks are explained in Discord.

The Monthly server has no VIP. Everyone is on even footing on the server. There’s no shop so the economics is player driven. If you want an item, you must loot it, craft it, buy it from a vendor/vending machine or from a player.

Spawnable Vehices

On the Biweekly server, using economics coins, you can buy vehicles that can be spawned. They can be spawned and despawned as needed and never use any fuel.

The Monthly server doesn’t have spawnable vehicles. To get around on the server, you’ll need to buy or build your vehicles.

Recycler Crafting

Players can craft recyclers on both servers. However, only VIP’s or members of the Steam group can craft recyclers on the Biweekly server. Anyone can craft a recycler (with the proper materials) on the Monthly server. The recycler can be placed anywhere normal base items can be placed.

Custom Helicopter Tiers/Personal Heli

Both servers allow players to call in a personal attack heli that they can fight. On the Biweekly server, this is done in the server shop. You can call in a heli using either economics or scrap. On the Monthly server, the heli is called in at the Air Traffic Controller NPC at the airfield and obviously you can only use scrap to buy it.

Instant Crafting

On the Biweekly, all crafting is instant. On the Monthly server, it’s vanilla crafting speed. The advantage to this on the Monthly server is that you can use the Skill Tree perks to alter the crafting speed.


Non-linked players on both servers only get 2 rows in their backpacks. Linked players get 5 rows in their backpacks on the Biweekly server and 7 rows on the Monthly server. VIP’s get 7 rows on the Biweekly server. Backpacks are wiped every map change.

Base Utility

The Base Utility plugin allows players to select a building skin for their base blocks, allows them to upgrade their base and repair their base, all from their TC. Only VIP players can do this on the Biweekly server. All linked players can do this on the Monthly server.

Maps and wipes

We wipe the Biweekly server on the first and third Thursdays of each month. When there are 5 Thursdays, we also wipe on the fifth Thursday. BP’s wipe on the first Thursday and Skill Tree wipes on the third Thursday. Nothing other than the map wipes on the fifth Thursday. BP’s and Skill tree are wiped on the first Thursday on the Monthly server.

The Biweekly server typically runs procedurally generated maps, most of the time with some customization. On occasion, a custom map will be run. The Monthly server runs smaller custom maps.


The Biweekly server is designed to be our flagship Rust server. It’s generally easier to play on and allows for faster progression and building. The Monthly server is configured to be a slower pace, closer to vanilla experience.
