About Elastic Population


Dynamic Population Control: Automatically updates the server’s maximum player limit based on the current number of players, ensuring the max players setting is always one step ahead of the current population.
Configurable Maximum and Minimum Population: Allows setting absolute maximum and minimum population limits that the server will not exceed or fall below, regardless of other calculations.
Configurable Cooldown: Includes a cooldown mechanism to prevent the server settings from being updated too frequently, helping to maintain server performance.
Console Message Toggle: Allows server administrators to enable or disable console messages when the max population is adjusted to reduce log clutter.
Efficient Timer Management: Implements a smarter timer mechanism that avoids unnecessary recalculations when multiple players connect or disconnect in quick succession.


The plugin uses a JSON configuration file which is automatically generated if it does not exist. Here are the default settings and descriptions for each configurable option:


"MaxPlayersOffset": 1,

"CooldownPeriod": 10.0,

"MaximumPopulation": 200,

"MinimumPopulation": 1,

"ConsoleMessagesEnabled": true



  • MaxPlayersOffset: The number of player slots to add to the current player count when setting the maximum players (default is 1).
  • CooldownPeriod: The cooldown period in seconds between adjustments to prevent performance degradation (default is 10 seconds).
  • MaximumPopulation: The highest number of players that the server can support at any time (default is 200).
  • MinimumPopulation: The lowest number of players that the server will not fall below (default is 1).
  • ConsoleMessagesEnabled: Whether to log changes to the server’s max players in the console (default is true).


This plugin operates in the background automatically and does not require any commands to be used by players or administrators.


No permissions are required for this plugin as it is designed for server-side configuration and operation.


  1. Download the ElasticPopulation.cs file from the ElasticPopulation page on uMod.
  2. Place the file in your RustServer/oxide/plugins directory.
  3. Use the command oxide.reload ElasticPopulation to load the plugin.
  4. The plugin will automatically create a default configuration file if one doesn’t already exist.


After installation, the plugin will function automatically. Server administrators can modify the MaxPlayersOffset, CooldownPeriod, MaximumPopulation, MinimumPopulation, and ConsoleMessagesEnabled in the configuration file to tailor the plugin to their server’s needs.


If you encounter issues, check the server console for any error messages related to the ElasticPopulation plugin. Ensure that the configuration file is formatted correctly and that you have the latest version of the plugin.
