Upcoming Dark Fantasy Medieval Rust RPG Server
SERVER BACKGROUND ("Rustfall")
This will be an upcoming, very unique, Rust Server Ruleset. It is currently in active development with much of the groundwork laid out. I will be serving as the Lead Dev and originator/manager of the project, as well as one of the active admins. This ruleset will have a place for all types of players, from the die-hard killers, to the noble defenders, to the roleplayers, wanderers, and gatherers on the wayside.

Is this ruleset meant to emulate or be a "substitution" for Darkfall: New Dawn or any other Darkfall? Not at all. But it was in part inspired by Darkfall, as well as other games such as Early EQ1 Rallos-Zek, DAOC Mordred, SWG, Shadowbane, and more. More details to come.

UPCOMING BETA & TRAILERS:
Prior to going live, we will be extending invitations to players from multiple gaming communities (Darkfall being one) in order to gather feedback of the overall player-experience of the ruleset, stress-test our server and mod setup, and allow me to record footage for the upcoming trailers and promotional materials.

If you are interested in taking part in these beta tests or just want to get in touch for whatever reason for feedback purposes or otherwise, please feel free to leave a comment or send me a PM. I will keep this thread periodically updated with progress, though the mainstays of the communication and updates will be handled through our forthcoming Discord channel/server. Hope to see some of you there, and on the server. Cheers.

It's a solid 150 more players than New Dawn currently has.

Your server seems like a lite version of this:
https://ruin.facepunch.com/f/gd26/otil/Ruin-general-info/1/

I'll play your server.

How are you going to have things like rideable horses, spells and npc quests? Are you creating assets and animations?

How about roaming npcs? Creating ai?

Does FP even allow this level of modding? I was under the impression gms got a admin console and could only change things like decay rate, spawn rate etc.. things predetermined by the devs

Thanks to those who've PM'd or posted. When we get our first beta up, we will be extending invitations in chronological order of those who've requested it, so again, if interested, please feel free to reach out. Ideally, we plan to run three beta tests in total, outlined as follows:

- BETA ONE: 100 Testers, Core Features, Some Extras. Goal being to gauge the overall player-experience and "feel" of the core game.

- BETA TWO: 150 Testers, Core Features, Advanced Features. Goal being to gather feedback on the advanced features when layered over the core game, and if there arise any conflicts or contradictions both in game mechanics or server structure.

- BETA THREE: 200 Testers, Full Game. Goal being to present the "finished" server ruleset in its entirety, record footage for trailers and promotional material, and gather final feedback as to how all the game mechanics gels together, and of course, make any final adjustments before launch based on said feedback.

@Brown Dorf
Rust, in addition to being able to change just about anything about the "base game", is also highly moddable, with a huge, talented mod community. The planned server features I've outlined all either already exist, or can exist with some further work. Essentially, even the mods which exist are only themselves tools and canvases for further modification and application as you see fit.

If our current speed holds, we're targetting June for Beta 1. Though that's not a hard date, just an optimistic projection. Be sure to check back on this thread for future updates or questions.

The beta's are planned to be 2 weeks apart.
Sounds good. I'd be happy to playtest.

Maybe I'm missing something but do you think it'd be more respectful to Ub3r not to use their forums to keep prospective players of your mod updated? Especially since discord is so commonly used to start and hold communities within a server and its very nice for updates and discussing feedback on the fly as opposed to forums sometimes

Absolutely. This thread will only be updated until the point the Discord channel/server is live, after which all communication will be handled there, and I might only use the Darkfall Reddit to get key information across. I actually said as much in the OP as that was always the intention (though could've been clearer):

I will keep this thread periodically updated with progress, though the mainstays of the communication and updates will be handled through our forthcoming Discord channel/server.

Been busy.

The Rustfall Discord server is up: https://discord.gg/NVyFg4z

From now on, all project updates will be handled through Discord. The only posts relevant to the Rustfall project I may post rarely (will check with Ub3rgames if this is OK with them) on the New Dawn offtopic will be major announcements only.

Hope to see some of you there. All are welcome, even if you're just there to observe.
