How to configure Gather Manager

Guidance we provide here can change at any time as we do not code or create plugins. We provide this guidance to assist in setting up this plugin. For the most up to date guidance you should consult the plugin page for the required plugin.

This article does not go over installing the plugin, we cover that in this article here: How to install and configure uMod/Oxide Plugins for Rust

This article assists with setting up: Gather Manager

Gather Manager allows you to adjust and change the settings for gathering on your Rust server. You can adjust rates for dispenser, pickup, quarry and survey.

Ingame Chat Command

/gather - Shows the current settings.

Console Commands

dispenser.scale <dispenser:tree|ore|corpse> <multiplier> -- Increase the scale of the resources available in dispensers
gather.rate <type:dispenser|pickup|quarry|survey> "<resource>" <multiplier> -- Increase the gathering rate for resource


gather.rate dispenser Wood 10 -- Gain 10 times as much wood from hitting trees
gather.rate dispenser Stones 5 -- Gain 5 times as much stones when hitting those rocks
gather.rate dispenser Cloth 10 -- Gain 10 times as much cloth when gathering from corpses
gather.rate pickup Stones 10 -- Gain 10 times as much stones when picking up that collectable stone item
gather.rate quarry Stones 20 -- Gain 20 times as much stones from the Mining Quarry
gather.rate survey "Sulfur Ore" 5 -- Gain 5 times as much Sulfur Ore from using Survey Charges>

Bulk setting can be done for everything in a certain category. For example dispenser.
gather.rate dispenser * 10 -- Gains x10 from all dispenser sources.
gather.rate pickup * 10 -- Gains x10 from all puckup sources.
gather.rate quarry * 10 -- Gains x10 from all quarry sources.
gather.rate survey * 10 -- Gains x10 from all survey sources.

Dispenser scaling examples.
dispenser.scale tree 5 -- Trees will yield 5 times as much resources
dispenser.scale ore 10 -- Ore rocks will yield 10 times as much resources
dispenser.scale corpse 2 -- Corpses will yield 2 times as much resources

Using these commands on your server.

To use these commands it is best done via RCON. It can be done ingame via the console. Here we will be using the RCON system.

Ensure the server is started and fully online.
Click the Web Console / Web RCON system button on the panel. (You can also use the console as well)

If you can not login to either option, check your server.cfg and ensure rcon.web is set to rcon.web 1 if it says rcon.web 0 then web rcon is disabled. It can also help to ensure your rcon password does not contain special characters.

Use the RCON IP/Port information and your RCON password to login. Your RCON password is set in the command line settings.

Once logged in click Console on the left hand side.
5 . At the bottom is a console text box where you can enter RCON/Console commands for Rust.

Enter the relevant plugin command you require and press enter. In this example we use x10 to dispensers.
If successful it will display an output in the log.

Repeat this for any settings for Gather Manager you require.
