Suggestion A pF Rust Server

    Thor and I (as well as some others) have been getting into rust quite a bit. There is a pretty good game community and its quite active. Tons of options for server admins to make whatever type of server you'd like. I don't know dick about shit when it comes to actually putting in the tools to make a server work, but it could be good for pF.

    If management isn't too familiar with the game, i'd be willing to extend out a copy to them to play.

        That's odd I use to run Rust servers off of linux, it must of changed since the game updates so frequently. Either way PF can afford a small Windows VPS to run the game that would be under 20$ especially with all the donation that come in. So if that's the only reason stopping this from happening then that's a pretty weak excuse but then of course it could be the fact of laziness and management not wanting to setup anything. Best way to figure out if it's worth it is to do a poll vote seeing how many active members are willing to play and from what i hear it is quite a lot, plus rust servers get populated fast with the a good community behind it.

        Well, if that is something which changes, or pF can upgrade to allow support for I'd still love to see a Rust server in the future. Quite the bummer though.

          I can only imagine how resource intensive a server running inside a virtual machine in Linux would be.

            You can make the server.

                Even better you buy a vps around 20 bucks with however many slots you would like.

                Or we could run it on @Tony's celeron for the cost of his time to set it up which would be free since his time is worthless.

                  I didn't suggest the VPS, because that's not the easiest path to getting a server up as it requires someone with some technical know how. (and I don't have time)

                  I second @Tony The Tiger and his celeron. It's probably a better/cheaper starting point since there's no guarantee people end up playing.

                  I have a vps but it would need an upgrade. If anyone wants to help pay for an upgraded vps, then sure!

                  This would be my own server and have nothing to do with plaguefest. If it takes off or something, perhaps that could change.

                    I'd be willing to donate a bit if this does happen since you already let me use it for my stuff.
