We've have some exciting changes and updates that have been happening over the past week! A New donator kit has been added that will aid you guys in protecting your magnificent bases. The "Defender" kit can be found on our donations page here. Quarry rates and damage to external stone walls have now been modified. Many of you have made many different suggestions regarding these two topics and we have found a nice medium that the whole server can enjoy. We've added the M249 to the custom Helicopter loot, also the damage of helicopters is permanently reduced automatically even after server restarts. No more extremely over powered attack choppers flying around immendiately after the restarts. Iceberg bases and glitched rock bases are against the rules and are added to the server rules message when joining our server. Last but not least we would like to announce our New TeamSpeak 3 Server! Open to all users of our servers, premuim channels will be coming soon for clans and other people who want private channels.
Touching base on the topic of the recent server crashes and rollbacks, there is and always will be a memory leak with Rust, we've accepted it. Facepunch has claimed to have fixed multiple memory leaks on several occasions. These leaks cause our server to run at 100% cpu and eventually crash. This crash will lead to a rolback for reasons unkown to us. Our server saves every 10 minutes and we check them as much as physically possible and still can't avoid them completley. We are not the only modded server experiencing these types of issues, its unfortunate but it is something we will have to deal with for now.
Friendly reminder to encourage your friends on the server to register to the forums, follow our twitter and join the Steam group. We are so close to reaching our 100 registered user goal and excited to give away these steam cards. Keep an eye out for random events and challenges that will be showing up on the server either announced or unannounced. We have huge plans regarding events and other challenges and just want people to have fun while participating. Prizes will normally include Resources, Weapons, Ammo or even personal requests or kits.

After much consideration, we have removed the DayVote plugin due to issues with it and the helicopters spawn cycle. To help alleviate the change we have lowered the night length back to 5 minutes also reducing the day length from 60 to 15, this will cause more days to pass and hopefully promote more helicopter battles. MegaLoot a.k.a BetterLoot will be re-enabled after the 2:00 am restart on 10/30/2015. There will be a poll on the forums regarding the BetterLoot plugin in its direct relation to lag on the server. More info will be posted in the poll thread later on this week. Enjoy the changes and.. get the choppa!!
Here at The Rusty Spittoon we focus on maintaining a fast-paced, accelerated environment that allows players to jump right into the action with very little grind. Our goal is to bring you the best Rust experience possible focusing on the things that matter. Although we’re a modded server we don’t believe in changing core mechanics of the game. We may adjust things to better fit the pace of an accelerated environment, but we’ll never remove an aspect from the game entirely.
