About Smart Warnings

SmartWarnings simplifies and streamlines your server moderation by providing means to consistently Warn your players for misconduct.
Gone are the times when you leave manual notes at sleeping players, for this plugin creates a smooth but intimidating pop-up window displaying clearly to the player what they've done wrong and how to learn from it.

From version v2.5.0 you can now extend highly customizable actions to trigger based on your custom warnings. The imagination is the limit!


Rule enforcement has never been easier before.


  • Easily dispatch warnings to players and clans with a simple chat command
    • /warn cookiemonster "leave the jar alone you bastard" Booom done!
    • /warn clan "C00KiEZ" "no cookiemonsters allowed in the jar!!" Maybe their collective brain power is needed to understand!
  • Announces Warnings in public Global Chat (Enabled by default, can be toggled in config)
    • Give your Players a sense of transparent justice by displaying the dispatched warning to everyone in public.
    • This is beneficial as players will learn what not to do from other's mistakes!
  • Offline Players can receive warnings, no problem!
    • Displays a pop-up window with the warning IMMEDIATELY if they are online, or as soon as the player wakes up from sleep upon connecting.
  • Create custom presets for common violations.
    • Presets can be made for example to reflect the server rules, it can be configured so that your admins can type /warn joe rule1 and it will spell out the entire rule 1 in the warning.
    • Presets can have an Expiration date which will remove the warning, allowing non-repeating offenders to be cleared if they're well behaving in the long term.
    • Presets can have a Warning Point weight which will give them different severity that can influence when to trigger an Automatic Ban (if enabled).
  • Automatically Ban players with X amount of Warnings or Warning Points (Disabled by default, can be toggled in config)
    • With this feature Enabled a player will be Automatically Banned when reaching the configured Warning amount or Warning Points.
    • For example, configure 3 warnings to be max and enable auto ban will ban a player when the third warning has been dispatched.
  • Supports Temporary Autobans (Disabled by default, can be toggled in config)
    • If you're the kind of type that believes in second chances, when configured it bans the player lets them know when they're welcome back!
    • Optional feature: Clear the player's warning when autobanned (True by default), This can conveniently be set to False if you want the player to be instantly auto banned next time a warning is dispatched.
  • Extensive Logging both File based and Discord!
    • Every move is logged in the oxide/logs/SmartWarnings folder so that you can have full traceability.
    • Optional feature:  Configure Discord Webhook links to log Warnings and/or Autobans to Discord.
  • Persist Warnings across wipes, when you don't want to be forgiving!
    • Set "Clear all warnings on wipe" to false and warnings will not be cleared when a new wipe is detected.
    • NOTE: This requires that you exclude/do not remove the oxide/data/SmartWarnings_Playerdata.json file, if you're using tools to auto wipe and it gets deleted, so will the warnings.


  • Customizable Branding
    • Set your Server Name and custom Warning Pop-up Icon to make this plugin match your server's style!
    • (NEW in v2.5.0) Transparency of the pop-up window can now be customized in the config!


  • (NEW in v2.5.0) VANILLA SAFE mode: Warning display in Chat instead of GUI pop-up
    • Warnings will be dispatched through chat and freeze the player until they acknowledge the warning. No use of GUI allows it to be vanilla safe!
    • Acknowledge notification is fully customizable!


  • (NEW in v2.5.0) AUTOMOD: Fully customizable command actions on X warning points
    • Define any custom command to be executed at X warning point.
    • This allows you to integrate with any other plugin for example mute, jails or whatever really.
    • For example: set to mute on 2 warning points, kick on 4 warning points, teleport to jail on 6 warning points.


NOTE: AutoMod actions are triggered incrementally by total warning points added to the player. This means if you configure Mute on 1 point and Kick on 3 points and give the player a warning worth 4 points, the player will be both kicked and muted.

AutoMod feature can conveniently be configured together with AutoBan feature, but keep in mind to set the point/warning thresholds to line up properly.
I.e. automod actions should not be on higher point level than autoban, because then player will be banned already before any actions are executed.



  • (NEW in v2.5.5) Battlemetrics Bans & Warnings integration
    • AutoBans will sync with Battlemetrics, duration, reason and note will be added to give context to what banned the player.
    • Warnings will add note to the player in Battlemetrics, so you can easily track their warning history even through the BM console!
    • Warnings will add a flag to the player in Battlemetrics, so you can easily differentiate players in the list who have warnings and not through the BM console!

Click here for guide how to set up Battlemetrics integration.

  • (NEW in v2.5.8) MySQL Database Support (allows Multi Server Warning Sync)
    • You can now configure the plugin to use a MySQL Database as its data source.
    • This will allow Warnings to be synced across multiple Rust servers if they are configured towards the same MySQL database.
