Admin Panel is a simple plugin that adds a small GUI panel with clickable commands for admins. The number of buttons depends on how many admin plugins you have on your server.
Commands: “/adminpanel show”, “/adminpanel hide”
Vanish is a plugin that can make you truly invisible. This is useful when you want to fly around the the map and spectate your players.
Admin Radar is a plugin that gives you a radar for players and other entities. You basically see all the players with their names across the entire map.
Entity Owner is a plugin that will show you the owners of an entity. This is useful on a server with a team limit rule. If you have a “max team size 3” rule on your server and you see 4 owners on a base, you know they broke the rules.
Auto Stash Traps
Auto Stash Traps is a plugin for catching cheaters. Cheaters can usually see players through the map and can even see all the stashes buried by players. This plugin will spawn fake stashes across the entire map and when a cheater opens one of these stashes, the plugin will make a record to a oxide/logs/AutoStashTraps folder. With this information, you can later ban the cheater.
Server Armour is a plugin that prevents cheaters from joining your server. The plugin has a database of cheaters from all of the Rust servers and won’t allow any players recorded in the database to join your server. You can also set it to prevent players with VAC bans or new steam profiles. You can find the configuration file in the oxide/config folder.
No recoil is another plugin for catching cheaters. It detects popular no recoil scripts that players use for easier gun control. You can set the plugin to automatically kick/ban the player upon detection.
Removal Tool is a plugin for deleting player structures. It it useful when you ban a cheater on your server and you want to get rid of his structures.
No Give Notices
No Give Notices prevents the server from displaying information about given items. Normally, when an admin gives items to his inventory, server will display it for all the players in the in-game chat. Use this plugin if you don’t want other players to know what items you gave yourself.
No Green hides your identity as a admin. Normally, admin have a green name in the in-game chat. If you don’t want other players to know that you are an admin, use this plugin to revert your nickname colour back to blue.
