If you're consider buying it, have a look at Ruster.NET Pro which allows you to change the identity of this product to suit your server!
You can buy it together in the bundle on that page. ^

To successfully migrate from JSON to the SQL database, please follow the following steps:

  1. Run the save command in your console / webrcon.
  2. Update Ruster.NET to the latest in your server.
  3. Make sure your SQL database connection is alive and working.
  4. Save the server once again, for the configuration file to generate the new properties.
  5. Open the configuration file up and scroll down to the Sql section, fill it up accordingly.
      "Sql": {
        "Port": 3306,
        "Hostname": "localhost",
        "Database": "RusterNET_db",
        "Username": "root",
        "Password": "",
        "Table": "RusterNETData"
  6. After that is done, make sure you saved the configuration file, then run the o.reload RusterNET console / rcon command.
  7. While you're having the RusterNET.admin permission, run the /migratetosql chat command.
  8. The DataType property will switch to SQL and the SQL database will initialize, launch the connection and save the database on your SQL server.

Notice: You don't have to create the table or data fields as it's all automatically generated. On each save, the whole table in being wiped and the data's being recreated.




Sending friend requests will immediately notify the other user about it. Once you're friends, you may both write posts on eachothers' feeds, rather than within the Marketplace &/or Global Feed.

Cutting ties with a friend or blocking them, will ensure mutual communication blockage.





If you're a server administrator, here's how you set the photograph uploads up:

  • Open up the RusterNET.json (config) file;
  • Go to the Imgur Application Registration form and log-in if you haven't yet;
  • Fill it up accordingly, but make sure the Authorization type is for Anonymous usage;
  • After all has been done, copy the ClientID and paste it in the RusterNET.json file config:
    • PhotographUpload -> ImgurClientId
  • To manage your Imgur Applications, go here.

With the addition of GIFs, you may share your favourite animated image stacks in your server!




Users can customize their profiles in more interesting ways with predefined avatars, profile banners and avatar frames!





By default, Ruster.NET comes with a variety of predefined avatars (15 in total), 8 being free and the rest are exclusively found in the Profile Store.




Ruster.NET comes with a variety of exclusive avatar frames (13 in total) that can be found in the Profile Store.




Ruster.NET comes with a variety of exclusive avatar frames (13 in total) that can be found in the Profile Store.




Use the Profile Store to purchase all the exclusive items for your profile. All the prices or even the avatars, frames or banners can be reconfigured (or add more or less of them). I highly recommend to use the existent ones as a template so it blends in better.

Flipbooks are designed to allow your players to get creative by creating short films using the Instant Camera. They're cheap, get one, snap the thumbnail picture, take loads of pictures, each time moving slightly, and see your art come to life like people in the '60s did.

You may reset the Flipbook with a fee by using the Repair Bench. The fee is 25 Scrap by default.
The actual fee is scaled based on the type of Flipbook and how many frames have been consumed.





You may send trade requests to your friends that live farther than where you are. This feature requires the RusterNET.trade permission to be able to see the blue Trade button under your friends' profile.





As you probably know, Stories on other social medias are pretty much posts that last for 24 hours. Same thing in Ruster.NET. You may add a message to your Photographs so they're also included with the Story you're willing to post.

Users can upload up to 5 stories at once, so use your space wisely. Once the stories run out, you'll be notified of how many views it has gained, in the notification list & push.

For users to be allowed to use Stories, an administrator must give specified users or groups permission: RusterNET.story.

The Ruster.NET Marketplace is a place for you to sell items you don't use anymore or want to sell it for triple the price. 



How It Works

The way the marketplace works is quite simple. Keep reading to understand how it all works.

Marketplace posts are like regular posts, except that you may set up your items you want to sell and the price you want to receive once a player purchased them. These posts you only find when you're in the marketplace panel. On the purchase, if the marketplace listing becomes out-of-stock, it's only visible for the creator of the post until the post owner is refilling the listing.


When you have more than one listing or a whole lot of post listings, you may mass restock using the "RESTOCK" button (next to the "WITHDRAW" button), hold a hammer and hit an unlocked storage container filled with items for those listings to automatically take out and restock. You may also individually restock your listings when you're the owner and have opened the post in full-screen. Drag and drop the item in the stash slot when it shows up.

If you changed your mind from restocking, press [USE] to return to Ruster.NET.

The owner of the server may configure the currency, and minimum / maximum price amounts players can set for their listings.




Adverts can be modified in the Marketplace panel.
Your active (or inactive) adverts will show up first. If any an advert that an user has posted is not stocked or needs restocking, they'll not be used by the algorithm which shows them on various feeds in different occasions.


To create adverts, you may purchase two different kinds from the Marketplace. The 24h one allows you to post and sell items within 24 real-time hours. The 1w one lasts for a whole week.

They work like real social media hashtags, add them to your posts and they'll be seen above the feed you're in. The more posts with the same hashtags, they'll be trending and be available for other users to filter their feeds with. You may use the mignifying glass icon to search by content - which is found in any of the feeds you can surf through.

Marketplaces' hashtags will automatically filter the frequently sold items which will allow you to easily see the best prices which fit your needs.






Create business cards to allow strangers to send you a friend request and connect with you.

Ruster.FM is Ruster.NET's audio player which you can play YouTube or direct URL snippet audio clips in your browser. Make sure you're doing the following for your server to successfully upload the clips for your players. To note: only Verified Ruster.NET users may use the Upload Audio feature.

  • Download FFMPEG from here.
  • Open up the ZIP file and in the bin folder, extract ffmpeg.exe into your server at an ideal location (recommended oxide/temp).
  • After that is done, you may now click on the Upload Song when you're in the New Post panel.
  • Fill up the fields, and when ready, press Upload.
  • After the upload's complete, make sure you're publishing it. Then, you're good to go!

The URL can be a YouTube URL or a direct-link MP3/audio file. Only allow trusted players to use it (with the RusterNET.verified permission).
The limit for the audio clips is 15 seconds. As of now, the way Rust allows me to store audio files, limits me like that. Will revisit some other time, and then for sure will implement a longer duration.




Players in your servers can now report any posts for various reasons. If you're a moderator and/or an administrator, you'll be able to see the Reports DM group which only the two types of users can access.
