Well all we can say this is Rust. It seems like everyone on the server had a common enemy the enemy was a well-oiled opponent with lots of allies willing or not.
It took a lot of farming and planing for the big Riad. In the end, the riad was successful and the enemy was defeated. The Players involved had lots of fun and yes there was a bit of salt but it would not be Rust without the salt.
After a short poll the server was wiped with a new map and no blueprints.
Here are some images of the bases left standing at the end of the half Wipe.
We have been experiencing some challenges with server. We moved hosting service and we had some challenges setting up the server but it seems like host side of the server are now stable.
We also had to remove all the MODS
- Furnace Splitter No longer supported by the developer and caused huge server lag dropping the server FPS with 50 FPS.
- Info Panel caused server lag dropping the server frames with +- 50 FPS.
- Code lock Sync if caused some strange code lock access issues and it also caused server lag dropping the server frames with +- 50 FPS
- Stack Size
The server FPS was sitting between 20 - 50 FPS. After all the changes the server FPS are now between 230 - 260 FPS. The increased FPS will make a big difference in your gameplay.
Please let us know if you experience any issues with the current mods on the server.
Thank you for all your support during this time.
We do apologise for the inconvenience caused due to the server crash.
The Rust Voodoo SA server suffered an unknown issue at about 03:00 am 22 March 2020. The server crashed and all the bases were wiped. We currently have no information off what happened. We have logged the issue with the Hosting service.
The server will be down until the issue has been resolved.
Hosting Service: Game Servers.
The first month with the new rules is all done and over. It has been interesting the server lost some payers but gained new players. In the end, everyone still build big bases and big raiding battles took place.
Please share your thoughts in comments.

It’s is almost the 3-year birthday of the Voodoo Rust SA server. Is has been an exciting 3 years. With lots of fun and challenges during this time and it was all worth it.
The last couple of months have been very hard to keep the peace on the server and enforce the rules. Some groups found ways around every rule and group size rule. This made it very difficult for the players playing by the rules of the server.
So, I have given up and removed all the noob-friendly rules and unbanned all the players banned not following the rules.
There will be no moderators available any more on the server. You are now on your own and if there is a hacker online report the player to FacePunch in-game.
Maps will be picked at random on wipe day.

If there are no active players on server, we will close the Rust SA server down and move the resource to another country or game.
This is a new monument filled with NPC’s but the reward of using this quarry will be worth the effort
Operating this quarry is no small task it will work better with friends
- Add Diesel fuel to the tank in the engine room
- Start the engine
- Go to the control room and select a resource to mine only one resource at a time can be mined.
- Collect resources from the two deposit locations.
Diesel is required to run the Giant Excavator. this new resource is a Higher quality fuel and ca only be used at the giant excavator at the moment.
It stacks to 20 and burns about 1 Diesel fuel every 2 minutes of run time. Only one stack can be loaded into the Excavator at a time.
|Cost||Excavator run time|
|300 Low Grade Fuel||2 Minutes per 1 Diesel|
Here are some sample yields of what you will for running the giant excavator. Please note it is very likely change before going live.
|Sample Yield 10 Diesel Burned|
|Stone||Metal Ore||Sulfur Ore||Height Quality Metal Ore|
|There are about 12 to 15 scientists throughout. The scientists will respawn in a period after they are killed.|
|Radiation Protection is a must. Radiation start on the outskirts of the giant excavator and increase as you get to the engine room. A Hazmat Suit will provide adequate protection from the radiation trough out the entire monument.|
|Similar to the Oil Rig, there is a broadcast signal you can set your pagers to in order to know when the Giant Excavator is running. This should provide a bit of balance by allowing groups to be notified when there’s someone excavating.|
|There is a Recycler in the corner of the engine room (on the same level as the fuel tank).|
The poll has been running for two weeks and the sentiment of the Voodoo Rust SA player base painted a very clear picture. There will be no changed to the rules of the Rust Voodoo SA |Noob Friendly server.
How we measure the sentiment.
- Any suggestions and votes to remove the KOS rules where added up together.
- Any suggestion or votes to keep the rules the same where added up together.
The where some interesting suggestion and we will look into how and if we can implement it on there server.
The good news is there will be more purge events where the KOS rules are suspended during the event.
Thank you for taking part in the Poll it really helped to settle the discussion. The server rules and setup might not be for everyone we never intended to make the server for everyone.
The server is for the noobs, weekend warriors and for the advanced players.
If everyone follows the rules it would be possible to Learn, Farm, Build, Raid and experience all the feeling’s Rust will make you experience.
The Hapis island has been a different experience but, in the end, this is rust and there was some amazing bases and a lot of raiding during the wipe.
The Voodoo Server also had a nice constant population every day that made things even better for interaction and game play.
Thank you to all the players for making this a fun wipe.
We took photos of the bases that survived until the end.
