Join the fun on our new server for Rust

You asked, some of you repeatedly and so I listened. GOL now officially runs a server for Rust [Steam] and you're all welcome to join in.

You can find it as "gamingonlinux.com" in the community tab, or direct IP: 163.172.17.175:30616. I also sorted out one of those nifty banners for it:

Note: The first Thursday of every month the server gets reset, this is not controlled by us. It's current a feature of the game.

While Garry from Facepunch has said some silly things in the past about Linux, the game actually runs really quite nicely. You shouldn't take what he says too seriously either, as he loves a good troll. You do currently seem to need to put it into Windowed mode or it won't register any input.

It's quite likely we will use this server in future livestreams and play with the community sessions, which could be quite fun with a good bit of PVP.

We also run other game servers, you can see them all on this page.

Enjoy!

I've tried rust today for the first time, after ~30 minutes loading it doesn't load the game, so I guess my hardware is too old:
i5-750 - 8GB RAM - Geforce GTS 250
I really want to play this game, but cannot afford a new full PC.. would be enough to upgrade my GPU with a GF 1050? maybe also upgrading to 12GB ram? what do you think?

Has there been a wipe?
Because I woke up and all my items in my "house" were gone (apart my map and some bottles of water). The house is still intact and there isn't any sign of damage.
Was the server hacked with wallhack? Can someone explain?

You were probably raided. On wipes everyone lose everything.

You sir, seem to have been raided. They probably replaced what they broke to get in, a common tactic. People leave you alive so you don't know who did it.

Do you have the toolcupboard thing so only authorized people can build in your area?

Rust updated today and I can no longer connect to the GOL server. It returns the error 'Wrong Connection Protocol - server update required'

Yeah, I had to wait as there were 5 people on, but it got down to 1 and I couldn't hold it off forever. It's now up to date again.

I would advise all to keep an eye on Rust updates, to promptly come off if there is one so I can update
