RUST Instant Craft Command & Variable

RUST Instant Craft Command

The instant craft command and variable for quick crafting

The RUST instant craft command and variable is used to remove the required waiting period for all craft-able items. This is a server variable that is scoped to all players connected to the server. When this setting is enabled, players that begin to craft new items will notice the custom crafting times are no longer present. Crafted items will immediately move into the players inventories, assuming they’re not full.

This setting can have a dramatic impact on the time spent by players on your server. It allows players to spend more of their session time on the other areas of RUST, such as farming, building, and PVP.

A few practical reasons for using the RUST instant craft command and variable:

  • Advertise a unique aspect/setting of your RUST server known as “Instacraft”
  • Permanently or temporarily remove the waiting time of crafting queues
  • Increase player focus on other areas of RUST, such as building, farming, hunting and PVP

Who can use the RUST instant craft command and variable

The RUST instant craft command can be issued on vanilla RUST servers by RUST admins and moderators only.  Non-admin players on vanilla RUST servers cannot use the instant craft command. There are plugins available for modded servers, such as Crafting Controller, that allow for finer grain control over the crafting times.

How to use the RUST instant craft command and variable

Before initiating the RUST instant craft command:

  • This setting can be issued as a command and take effect instantly. If you intend to set it permanently, be sure to add it to your start up configurations or server.cfg file.
  • Ensure players understand that this command and server setting are being put into place
  • Consider updating your server’s “hostname” and “description” to include “Instacraft”
