It's certainly okay to disagree with others. But our number one rule is that you avoid being toxic or cruel to other players, for whatever reason. Racism or discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender, etc. will not be tolerated here.
HERBIVORES AND YOU
Heribivores are not allowed to outright attack carnivores, unless threatened or a fight is unavoidable. This means that you can't sneak up on a resting Dilo and bite it. If that Dilo is stalking you or 3 calling, feel free to attack.
WHAT TO DO WITH DEAD DINOS
There is NO body down rule on this server. However, you are expected to eat what you kill. If you are out slaughtering everything you see, simply for sport, you will be warned, kicked, and eventually banned for such behavior. If the hunt is over, and you're a carnivore, you are expected to stay with the body, unless contested. You may then 4 call and yield the body to the contesting carnivore. This doesn't apply to herbivores.
NO SWIMMING IN A FIGHT
Stay out of the pool if you are being hunted. If someone 3 calls, leave the water immediately and head to the nearest shore, even if that beach is where your predator is. Spino, Sucho and Baryonyx can stay in the water if they were already in the water.
NO MIXING OF SPECIES
Herbivores of different species may herd together. Carnivores can not.
THE PACK LIMITS
Rex: 2 adults, 2 juvies. When the juvies become sub-adult, they must leave the pack. Giga: 3 adults, 2 juvies. When the juvies become sub-adult, they must leave the pack.
Send a message to me personally. I'm trying to keep the rules as limited as possible, though. But if there's some giant loophole that's sucking all of the fun out of the game, please feel free to let me know. Expect more pack limits to be listed as the server grows, but right now it's brand new and will require more bodies to properly test the limits.

- No (33%, 3 Votes)
Total Voters: 9
We’re considering adding mods after the next server wipe.
Some examples of mods we may install are:
https://oxidemod.org/plugins/no-fuel-requirements.1179/ (Would likely only apply this to light sources)
https://oxidemod.org/plugins/player-corpse-duration-modifier.778/ (Would probably increase this to 15 minutes.)
Additionally, we’re switching to a new map seed after the wipe.
Here is what the new map will look like: http://playrust.io/map/?Procedural%20Map_4000_23
Vote and let us know your thoughts!
So far we have given away 39 different games!
In addition to that our giveaway pool has 58 keys still outstanding to be given away. And that number is still growing!
Be sure to check the #games-n-giveaways text chan to see the latest giveaways and check for new ones. To be added to the giveaways notify ping, simply ask any admin or mod to add you.
Over the next several weeks we will be giving away over a dozen games!
These will be super easy and fun activities for literally everyone here, so you don’t need to own a certain game to compete, and they won’t take a lot of brainpower. Lurkers, come win things and hang out with us, if you wanna!
Join Discord for details.
Giveaways begin July 24!
We will be giving away a Conan Exiles Steam key on Friday, July 20, 2018!
All you need to do to enter is be a member of the BattleFurs/Rawr Patrol Discord, message Brax to let him know that you’re interested, and be an active member on Discord! (Participate in chat, voice comms, game with friends, etc.)
Want to increase your chances of winning? For every 8 hours you are connected to one of the BattleFurs servers over the next week, you will get an extra “entry”, which will give you more chances to win!
Example: If you stay connected to the BattleFurs Conan Exiles server AND the BattleFurs Rust server for the entirety of the next 7 days, your chances of winning are 42 times higher than someone who is just a member of the Discord and does not play on any of the BattleFurs servers!
Already have Conan Exiles? No problem! We’re giving away a key which you can give to your friends!

Battlefield 5 will be here Tuesday, October 16, 2018. The closed alpha has already started.
Battlefurs will have a 64 player hardcore server as soon as they become available.

We’ve had the same map seed for several wipes now. Would you like a new map?
Should we change the map seed on the next wipe?
- Yes (67%, 16 Votes)
- No (33%, 8 Votes)
Total Voters: 24
Due to overwhelming popularity and the FP forced update, the vote has been closed.
Have had a few requests for this recently so here it is.
If votes for immediate don’t get a majority (Over 50%) they’ll be rolled into the votes for BP wipe at end of month.
Facepunch has not enforced a BP wipe in several months, this would force that event. (Though if they force a BP wipe again next month you’ll have to start over twice.)
Should we have a forced (non-Facepunch) Blueprint Wipe?
- Yes. Immediate. (This wipes map too.) (72%, 13 Votes)
- Yes, but only with the next map wipe. (28%, 5 Votes)
- No unscheduled/unenforced wipes please! (0%, 0 Votes)

There is now a new decay system in Rust.
You now must feed your Tool Cupboard to keep your building from decaying. This upkeep system means you know exactly how long until your house begins to decay. Additionally, once it does begin to decay, it happens much faster. I tweaked the server side settings for how fast things do decay and lowered the speed by about 15-20% but it is still quite fast compared to what we’re used to with the previous decay system.
You can see more information about the new decay system below:
In the past we’ve run the server without decay enabled.
Depending on how you look at it, fortunately, or unfortunately, we’ve had a lot more players online lately and have experienced an overflow of objects on the server. (We’ve hit the Unity engine cap.)
Once the wipe comes we’ll kick decay back down to where it usually sits at about 50% of normal. (We’ll be on a smaller map and that should lower the number of objects on the map even if we’re just as busy.)
The Nov 16 update is out! Trees fall, the wood harvesting minigame is live (strike the x on the tree like the shiny on ore,) and there are naturally a whole heap of fixes.
Start chopping that wood! (Also, for funsies, shoot a forest with a rocket to see what happens.)
Did some work today and got the floating objects/entities fixed. Everything should be sitting at ground level now.
Rust has been active recently so I’ve updated the site a bit and removed outdated stuff.
Registration is allowed again. We’ll see how that goes.
I’m aware of the floating resources issue, this is a map/engine issue that must be resolved by a patch from FacePunch.
Additionally, I’ve noticed a lot of people mention how far they have to run to find other people this wipe.
I’m considering lowering the map size a bit which would make it easier to work with others, build communities, and trade.
Remember, however, this will also make it easier for others to raid you as well.
Rust Server: Decrease map size from 5km to 4km?

In a move that surprised no one, DICE/EA announced today that Battlefield 1 will take place during WWI.
In the trailer I only saw 1 clip that I could say looked like real game play footage (Looked a lot like BF4: Operation Outbreak) but it did show that gas attacks will happen.
Battlefurs will have a server as soon as they are available.
Battlefurs now has a BF Hardline server. Get your game on!
We now have a rust server!
The easiest way to search for it is via listing servers via alphabetical order. (You might need to select the empty server checkbox.)
Name: “BattleFurs Yiff Rust Server”
Address: rust.battlefurs.com (may be able to use the connect console command)
It was a close vote, but looks like hardcore won out. Along with winning the vote, hardcore is also good for populating the server in the early stages of being public, due to the fact that there is only 1 other official hardcore server to choose from.
Please make sure to send us a message with any idea’s or suggestions you may have for the server, once we go ranked.
