Hey Bumfuzzlers! Big news cycle this week! We’ve got changes to the online store, packages available across servers, extended package offerings, cargo plane crash event changes, lock-on rocket changes, changes to fireworks, super skin availability, future plans for super skin combos, raidable base updates, Bumfuzzlernilla gets a subscriber kit, tomorrow’s wipe and much more! Read on!

Online Store Changes

The recent changes to Bumfuzzlernilla also bring efforts to unify some configuration in order to allow players to seamlessly go between servers with their purchased packages.

packages

One major item I’ve been focusing on is the online store.

Now, almost all of the packages in the store are available on both Bumfuzzlernilla and Bumfuzzlertopia, but not just to purchase for each server individually. I’ve made it so that when you purchase packages, they are automatically available on both servers at the same time for the duration of your purchase.

For instance, let’s say you purchase the Frequent Flier package for 1 month on Saturday 10/24. From that Saturday until 1 month later, you’ll be able to spawn your own minicopter with unlimited fuel, summon it to you from wherever you are, and more, on both Bumfuzzlernilla and Bumfuzzlertopia.

So if you play for 1 week on Bumfuzzlernilla and then decide you want to play on Bumfuzzlertopia or vice versa, you’ll have access to your purchased package and its features.

This will absolutely give you more for your buck and extend package usefulness.

For those of you who had purchased packages prior to these changes, you should have now been given those packages on Bumfuzzlernilla too.

Christmas Cheer

As just mentioned, some purchases are available on all Bumfuzzler servers. One of those packages, which received some changes, is the Christmas Cheer Package.

Christmas Fireplace

Here are the changes I’ve made:

  • When you purchase the Christmas Cheer package you’ll have it available on both Bumfuzzlernilla and Bumfuzzlertopia
  • Added 100 feet of Deluxe Christmas Lights
  • Added a very Christmassy outfit containing armor, a Santa hat, and yes, a white Santa beard.

Here’s what you’ll get on both servers:

  • Santa Hat
  • Santa Beard
  • 6 Pookie Bears
  • 16 Festive Doorway Garland
  • 16 Festive Window Garland
  • 100 Christmas Lights
  • 100 feet of Deluxe Christmas Lights
  • 8 Christmas Door Wreaths
  • 5 Candy Canes
  • 6 Decorate Baubels
  • 6 Decorate Gingerbread Men
  • 6 Decorate Pinecones
  • 6 Decorate Plastic Candy Canes
  • 6 Decorate Tinsel
  • 6 Star Tree Topper
  • 6 Tree Lights
  • 1 Candy Cane Club
  • 2 Stone Fireplace
  • 6 Snowmen
  • 1 Reindeer Antlers
  • 6 Christmas Trees
  • 1 Santa Hat

In addition, you’ll get these items on Bumfuzzlertopia:

  • Christmas outfit armor
  • 16 Small Stockings
  • 16 Large Stockings
  • 6 Large Presents
  • 6 Medium Presents
  • 6 Small Presents

So, if you purchase the Christmas Cheer package, you can then go on either server, type /kit and you’ll have access to the Christmas Cheer kit. The difference is you will get slightly different items.

It’s a great way to support the server!

Halloween Fear

Similar to the Christmas Cheer package, I’ve made some changes to the Halloween Fear package.

halloween

Here are the changes I’ve made:

  • When you purchase the Halloween Fear package you’ll have it available on both Bumfuzzlernilla and Bumfuzzlertopia
  • Added 1 large loot bag, 2 medium loot bag and 3 small loot bags. The large loot bag is particularly special.

Here’s what you’ll get on both servers:

  • 2 Jack O Lantern Happy
  • 2 Jack O Lantern Angry
  • 10 Wooden Crosses
  • 6 Cursed Cauldron
  • 6 Skull Fire Pit
  • 10 Small Candle Set
  • 10 Large Candle Set
  • 10 Spider Web
  • 10 Fogger 3000
  • 4 Scarecrow
  • 6 Spooky Speakers
  • 8 Strobe Light
  • 10 Coffin
  • 10 Graveyard Fence
  • 10 Gravestone
  • 1 Scarecrow Wrap
  • 1 Butcher Knife
  • 1 Sickle
  • 1 Pitch Fork

You’ll get the additional items on Bumfuzzlertopia:

  • Halloween Outfit (includes armor)
  • 1 Large Loot Bag
  • 2 Medium Loot Bags
  • 3 Small Loot Bags

So, again the idea is if you purchase the Halloween Fear package, you can then go on either server, type /kit and you’ll have access to the Halloween Fear kit. It’s fun to support the server by decorating your base in a spooky way – especially this time of year!

Frequent Flier

The minicopter is certainly a favorite and the Frequent Flier package is extremely popular.

Minicopter

This package allows you to spawn a minicopter with unlimited fuel, without decay, you can call it to you wherever you are, and more!

Here are the changes I’ve made:

  • When you purchase the Frequent Flier package you’ll have it available on both Bumfuzzlernilla and Bumfuzzlertopia

Here’s what you get on both servers:

  • Spawn your own minicopter (/mymini) cooldown 2 hrs
  • Call your minicopter to your location (/fmini)
  • Ability to destroy your minicopter (/nomini)
  • Unlimited minicopter fuel
  • Minicopter does not decay
  • Place code locks on your mini (/lockit.code)
  • Place code locks on your scrap helicopter (/lockit.code)
  • Claim ownership of a minicopter, scrap helicopter (/vclaim, /vunclaim)

Just like with the other packages, you can then go on either server to use it!

If you love flying and you’re a minicopter enthusiast, the Frequent Flier package is for you!

Gallop King

Who doesn’t think it’s awesome to spawn your own horse, name her and then call her by whistling?

Player Riding Horse

Exactly. Everyone wants to say, Hiyo Silver!

Gallop King is a bit more than just a kit, but it does come with a kit. It allows you to spawn your own horse, give your horse a name, call your horse from wherever you are on the map, and more. You’ll get to automatically outfit your horse with horseshoes and 4 saddlebags, giving you some nice storage for looting the countryside!

Here are the changes I’ve made:

  • When you purchase the Gallop King package you’ll have it available on both Bumfuzzlernilla and Bumfuzzlertopia
  • Instead of 2 saddlebags, the /kit now provides 4

Here’s what you get on both servers:

  • Spawn your own horse (/horse)
  • Horse automatically stops when you jump off
  • Name your horse (/whistle set <name>)
  • Call your horse from anywhere (/whistle <name>)
  • Get a list of your horses (/myhorses)
  • Claim ownership of a horse (/vclaim, /vunclaim)
  • 1 High-Quality Horse Shoes
  • 4 Saddlebags
  • 1 Hitch & Trough

On Bumfuzzlertopia you’ll get the following additional items:

  • 1 Roadsign Horse Armor
  • 25 corn

Just like with the other packages, you can then go on either server to use it!

Gallop King is great for those cowboys who want to support the servers!

Car Genius

Last but not least for the store packages is Car Genius. This package gives you lots of vehicle perks.

Car LIft

Here are the changes I’ve made:

  • When you purchase the Car Genius package you’ll have it available on both Bumfuzzlernilla and Bumfuzzlertopia

Here’s what you’ll get on both servers:

  • Spawn your own car (/mycar 2|3|4)
  • Call car to your location (/mycar fetch)
  • Ability to destroy your car (/mycar destroy)
  • Show a list of presets (/mycar common list)
  • Modify car w/presets  (/mycar common load <name>)
  • Claim ownership of a car (/vclaim, /vunclaim)
  • Unlimited car fuel
  • Car does not decay
  • Car automatically starts its engine
  • Car spawns with tier 3 engine parts
  • Car storage increased to 7 rows per storage module (42 slots)

This setup is so flexible since you can spawn your own car of any size, then simply by looking at it, change its configuration and modules with one command. You can choose between the Armored Bus, Armored MiniBus, Armored SpeedBuggy, Armored Storage, Loot MiniTruck, Loot Truck, Speedy Storage, Storage Buggy, and Water Truck.

With the purchase of the Car Genius package, you can then go on either server to use the full capabilities.

Cargo Plane Crash

Both servers have the cargo plane crash event where a plane streaks across the sky in flames and smoke ready to crash.

Plane Crash

I’ve made a couple of changes to the event on both servers.

Here are the changes I’ve made:

  • Now the plane crashes 40% of the time on its own
  • Automatic plane crashes will give 1 crate and 1 supply drop
  • Taking the plane down with a rocket, which is challenging, will give 3 crates and 2 supply drops
  • Spawn time for the plane was doubled. Now it spawns between 2 and 4 hours.

Effectively, this event acts as a super supply drop since it will crash 40% of the time and give you not only a supply drop but an elite crate too.

Lock-On Rockets

For now, I’ve decided to disable lock-on rockets on Bumfuzzlertopia.

Lock on Rockets

There’s just too many exploits and issues with it that I don’t have time to tackle right now.

I’ll potentially revisit them in the future.

Language Fixes

There were a couple of small issues with various texts that I fixed on Bumfuzzlernilla.

Words

During the process of redesigning Bumfuzzlernilla, there were a couple of wording issues I missed:

Here’s what was fixed:

  • In the cargo plane crash announcements, there was an errant symbol at the start. I removed that.
  • In the cargo plane crash announcements, there was a reference to lock-on rockets which exist only on Bumfuzzlertopia
  • When players got killed by or took down the Patrol Helicopter, it would refer to the Patrol Helicopter as the SuperHeli. The SuperHeli only exists on Bumfuzzlertopia. Now it will say Patrol Helicopter.

Hopefully, this is less confusing!

Firework Displays

I need to do a lot more work on the fireworks displays, but it won’t be for a while. Still, I’ve made some changes.

Fireworks

Here’s what’s been changed:

  • Loot will now drop Metal Ore
  • HQ Metal Ore will be very slightly reduced
  • I’ve reduced rockets slightly and added more delay between them
  • The frequency between firework display entries was doubled
  • On Bumfuzzlernilla I’ve limited the firework locations to the LightHouses and Launch Site
  • Bumfuzzlernilla also drops resources equivalent to the typical gathering amounts

I’m hoping to redesign the plugin so that the fireworks are sent up into the air from fixed positions on the monuments. Currently, it’s extremely difficult to position them which sometimes causes them to be coming out of mountains and underneath the ground.

Thanks to Evil_Merlin and kungfoozball for feedback.

Super Skin Availability

It’s bummed (pun intended) that my logs show me Bumfuzzlers haven’t found Super Skin Combos.

Super Skin Combos

Super Skin Combos is the feature that allows you to put together sets of 3, 4, or 7 clothing items to receive special bonuses such as higher health, gather bonuses, radiation protection, etc. You can get full information about Super Skin Combos here.

As a short term fix to this, on both Bumfuzzlernilla and Bumfuzzlertopia, I’ve tried to make Super Skins more available, but this probably won’t solve the issue completely because many of the Super Skin Combo items are armor and that means they are automatically more rare.

For example, if the Metal Facemask only comes up in loot 5% of the time and then Metal Facemask Super Skins are given 25% of the time, you can see that it will come up rarely. Getting all 7 items in a 7 item Super Skin Combo over the course of a 1 or 2-week wipe cycle is somewhat unlikely.

So for now, I’ve set the default skins to spawn on items 30% of the time. That means of course you have a 70% chance of getting a Super Skin at some varying level. At least this is something. What I’ll have to do is create more lower-level Super Skin Combos with items that are less rare so that they come up in loot more frequently.

I’ll be addressing this over the course of the next couple of weeks as I didn’t have time to do it. It’s a time-consuming process.

Raidable Bases

On Bumfuzzlernilla, I’ve added Raidable Bases, but it’s still in the testing phase.

C4 Explosive Suit

There are a few things to consider right now.

  • There are only easy and medium bases available. In the future, I’ll make some more challenging bases, but that will take some time.
  • Tool Cupboards don’t drop any items. I’ll fix this in the near future. It’ll take some time since I have to review each base and remove resources from the tool cupboards to ensure players don’t get too much loot.
  • The loot was set a little on the low side originally and will be adjusted from there. Initially, easy and medium bases were set to the same amount of loot, but that’s been changed.

I’m hoping to find some time this coming week to work on this functionality.

Thanks to kungfoozball, Doctor Who, and WaterFountain for the feedback.

Weapon Evolution

It looks like there’s a small issue with Weapon Evolution.

Evolution

It appears, if you have a weapon with a skin other than the default to start, kills won’t register towards the evolution of the weapon to Super Skins.

Typically killing anything, animals, players, scientists, etc. will give you a message that the kill has added to the count of kills that weapon has been used for, and eventually you’ll receive an evolved weapon when you hit the set limit. Unfortunately, if that weapon has a skin that is other than the default, it won’t work and never registers the kills.

If you do find a Super Skin weapon, unless it’s the highest level, that should evolve fine.

I’ll try to get this fixed as soon as I can, but for now, the workaround is simple, at least on Bumfuzzlertopia. Simply type /skinbox and set the skin to the default (the upper left box). Now it will work. For players on Bumfuzzlernilla, I don’t have a workaround for you right now, but I will try to address it shortly.

Thanks for

Subscriber Kit

It’s important that Bumfuzzlers subscribe to get news like this about changes to our servers.

Plane Cargo Drop

So, I’ve extended the Subscriber Kit to Bumfuzzlernilla as well.

This means if you subscribe here on the website, you’ll automatically get notifications when I post news here, but you’ll also get access to the Subscriber Kit in-game.This /kit will give you access to supply drops.

On Bumfuzzlertopia you’ll get a supply drop every 3 day, but on Bumfuzzlernilla you’ll get 1 supply drop per wipe cycle. That’s a really good deal and very valuable to your Rust wellbeing.

So sign up and get your /kit!

Something to mention is that this is a manual process. That means from the time you subscribe to the time you get the kit, it could take some time if I’m busy. If you’re impatient or it takes too long, just nudge me on Discord and I’ll get it straightened out.

Also, if you’re a veteran subscriber on Bumfuzzlertopia and you don’t have the kit on Bumfuzzlernilla, nudge me as well. You won’t have it automatically as the servers are not synced.

Wipe

Tomorrow morning Bumfuzzlernilla will have its map wiped around 7-7:30 AM EST.

Bathroom Stalls

I’ll be leaving blueprints probably until the first Thursday of the month.

As usual, I’ll announce when I start and finish the wipe in Discord.

Thank you as always to all you Bumfuzzlers that provide me with feedback, help me track down issues, and in general, are just all-around awesome people. I truly appreciate it. Thanks for making our servers your favorite Rust servers. Have fun out there!

Here’s a couple of videos on the latest Rust news for what Facepunch is up to in case you missed it.
