What is Sign Artist?

Sign Artist is a plugin that provides players with the ability to load custom images onto signs, picture frames, etc, on your Rust server hosting server. This plugin can provide a lot of entertainment to your server, however, just be sure to moderate what images players are importing! To install Sign Artist to your Rust server, hosting services, you’ll need to ensure that you have Oxide installed. You can view our knowledgebase guide on how to install Oxide here.

How to Install Sign Artist to Your Rust Server

  1. To begin, start by downloading the ‘Sign Artist’ plugin by navigating to the Iceline panel, select the ‘plugins’ tab, and click “Install” on SignArtist. You can now skip to step four. Alternatively, you can install the plugin manually from here and follow the steps below.
  2. Connect to your SFTP via FileZilla (We have a guide on how to do this here).
  3. Upload the ‘SignArtist.cs’ file to your /oxide/plugins folder.
  4. You can now restart your Rust sever hosting server.
  5. To be able to use the Sign Artist commands, you’ll need to make use of Oxide’s permission system.

To assign a permission through Oxide, use the following syntax:

  • oxide.grant <user or group> <name or steam id> <permission>

The main permission you’ll need to assign yourself or a group in order to use Sign Artist is “signartist.allow”, however, you can find a full list of the permissions on the official uMod page for the plugin here.

  1. Once you’ve assigned the necessary permissions, to add an image in-game, simply upload it to an image-sharing site such as Imgur.
  2. Place down a picture frame/sign in-game and type the following command whilst looking at it “/sil <imageURL>”

You should see that your image has now been imported in-game!

Facing any issues?

If you’ve loaded into your Rust server hosting services and you’re unable to assign permissions or enter any commands, ensure that you’ve assigned yourself as an admin. Also, check your server console for any apparent errors! If you’re still having problems, please feel free to contact our support team at Iceline Hosting today.
