In some cases, you may have thought of creating a zone for the new players where they can feel welcome to your Rust server and get familiar with the rules. But, with Rust being a game focused on PvP and Raids, this can prove to be a challenge.

Zone Manager is a uMod plugin that allows you to designate and administrate zones with special features, creating non-PVP areas to welcome your new players.

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 on your Rust server hosting server.

And, if you want it, you can even design users immune to flags in a determined zone

Installation (Mod Manager)

  • From your game panel , go to the plugins tab.
  • Using the search bar, search for the “Zone Manager” plugin and press the “Install Plugin” button.
  • Restart your Rust server

Installation (Manually)

  • Download the plugin directly from the page.
  • Go to your server game panel>File manager.
  • Go to the oxide folder>plugins and drop the file there.
  • Restart your server.

If done correctly, this plugin should now be installed in your Rust server!

How to create a Zone

First, make sure to have the permissions assigned ( 

  • In the chat, put /zone_add to create a zone in your location

That’s it, as simple as that!

How to Edit a Zone

In the following example, we’re going to make a ‘spawn’ zone, put the following command in the chat.

/zone id “ spawn ” radius 14 nobuild true undestr true safezone true

  • id sets the zone id
  • radius sets the size of the zone as a sphere
  • nobuild and the undestr flags (flagged as ‘true’) disable construction and building damage
  • safezone disables PvP damage

You can see the uMod page of the plugin for further information
