You can also apply other conditions (called flags) such as disabling the chat, buildings, fall damage, and much more! the tools are at your disposal and it’s up to you how to use them!

So please stay tuned and enjoy learning the background of this treasure.

Lets get started! As some of you may know the creators of Valheim “Iron Gates” is a small company operating out of Sweden. Consisting of only four full-time employees and one part-time consultant, They also partner with Coffee Stain Publishing as their marketing staff.

Shown above is the Iron Gate logo for Valheim.

The goal of the game is to prove your worth to Odin by fighting alongside him to reclaim the forgotten lands of Valheim. In order to do so, you will have to adapt to Valheims hostile environments. Whether that means gathering resources, building farms and outposts, and even destroying monsters that may get in your way. The end goal is to work up the strength to take on the nine Forsaken Ones to free Valheim and take back the land.

Odin

Conclusion

Unfortunately, there isn’t much detail into Iron Gates’s creation, but who doesn’t love short and simple occasionally, right? However, I must say they may have not given a lot of detail but this sure is a very entertaining game and I know all of us Valheim fans are grateful that it has been created!

How to Acquire Skins For Rust

In this post, we will be showing you the easiest ways to get skins for Rust. In Rust skins have become a fashion accessory, before the team system, you and your friends would need to wear identical clothing so you do not accidentally shoot each other.

Steam Market:

This is the Page for the Steam skin market, it has a lot of Categories for every game, on the right side you can easily select Rust as the filter and it will show only skins for Rust. (as seen above after the filter is selected)

To purchase a skin from the Market, you need to click on the skin, and this will pop up, you will wanna click “Buy” and than a window will come up with your info so you can buy the skin, or send an offer.
Also, to get to the Market, click community and than click Market, and it will bring you to the Market page shown in the first image.

Rust Item Store:

Shown above is a picture of the current (or possibly not current) skins being sold from the Rust Item Store. These skins change on or about every Thursday with new skins that the FacePunch team approves.

You can also access the item store from the in game Menu by simply clicking on “Item Store”

Skin Trading:

To get to where this button is, simply hover your mouse on your profile name beside Community and than click “Inventory”

Another way to get skins is by trading current skins you have with other people on your friends’ list or with random people. PLEASE NOTE: Trading with people you don’t know can be kind of Sketchy, make sure you have 2FA enabled on your steam account as you need to confirm the trade on your Steam Authentication app, that way you do not get scammed.

After clicking the Trade Button, this is the window that will pop up, here you can view any incoming offers, what offers you sent, Trade history, as well as a couple of helpful links if you have questions.

By the end of all your trading, you can view the skins you have gotten by hovering over your name at the top of the steam page, and clicking “inventory” and select Rust to view the skins you purchased.

How to update your Rust Server

You will need to update your server once in a while when facepunch adds more content or has mandatory updates on either their client side or server side. This tutorial shows you how to go about updating your server to the latest version.

Backing up your server

Backing up your server is always good practice when you have to update your it as some things could go wrong, having a backup enables you to restore it and attempt the server update again. You can delete the backup if everything goes to plan or you can keep it for a preset amount of time.

  1. Under backups in your main menu click on the CREATE BACKUP button.
  2. Give your backup a name and click START BACKUP.
  3. The backup process can take some time. Wait for it to complete before proceeding to the next step.

Updating your Rust Server

  1. Navigate to Settings on your top menu and click on the UPDATE SERVER button.
  2. To continue with the server update, you will have to type the word “update” in the text box, then click the UPDATE SERVER button.
  3. You will then be presented with a “Your server is installing.” screen as shown.
  4. Once installation is complete you will automatically be redirected to the settings page.
  5. You can now re-install uMod and any other plugins on your new server that you had previously. You might have to uninstall then re-install the uMod mod.

Conclusion

This concludes the backup and update tutorial of the Rust Server.
When re-installing plugins, the configuration of the plugins is NOT lost.

Twitch Drops for Rust

Rust has Twitch Drops?

Yes! Rusts first batch of Twitch drops was back in November of 2020 and only had three items. Twitch drops made a comeback in January of 2021 when a bunch of large streamers decided to stream Rust causing an insurgence of new players. Now, as of writing this article, Rust is on Round 7 of Twitch drops and have stated that drops will continue for the foreseeable future.

How do I Acquire Twitch Drops?

Actually getting drops is pretty easy! To get started, you are going to need to head over to Facepunchs’ drop page here. It should look something like this.

Start by clicking the “Get Started” button. It will scroll you down to where you sign in with your twitch account. Click, “Sign In With Twitch.”

After signing in, you will have to authorize some permissions. If you do not authorize these, you will not be able to get drops.

After successfully signing into Twitch, you will have to sign in to your Steam account. This will link your Twitch and Steam accounts so Facepunch knows what account should be getting the skins.

After successfully signing in to both Twitch and Steam, you should see a new image.

This means you are officially able to earn drops. Now, what type of drops are there?

What Type of Drops are There?

There are two types of drops for rust, Streamer Drops and General Drops. Streamer drops are specific to the streamer that has the drop and can be seen under the “Streamer Drops” section.

To earn these skins, all you have to do is watch the specific streamers stream for 2 or sometimes 4 hours. After that, you should be able to claim it. (NOTE: Muting a stream will void any progress towards drops!)

General Drops are earned by watching any streamer that has Rust drops enabled.

These ones take two hours each to acquire just like the streamer drops.

How do I claim the Skins?

After watching for the correct amount of time, the skins will be added to your twitch inventory. You can access your inventory here. You should see something like this.

Here you can see your progress for the drops and ones you have already claimed. When a drop is ready to be claimed, a white box saying “claim” will appear over the drop, click this and it will be added to your inventory.

If your skin doesnt appear in your steam account right after clicking claim, head over to the drop site and click the “check for missing drops” button.

This should solve any issues with getting your skins.

Conclusion

Rust Twitch drops are an awesome way for Rust content creators, big or small, to get exposure and to have their own in-game item. Because these drops are exclusive, they will only be able to be earned during that specific round making them more unique. Remember, new drops are added each month with the monthly updates so do not miss out!
