This guide will help you set up a Decay Variables on your Rust Server.

Stop the server and navigate to the Configuration Files using the Config Editor on Start.bat
On the Custom Commands box you can enter any of the following commands below. They need to have a + Sign at the start and space afterwards. Eg: +decay.delay_override 2880 +decay.duration_override 2880
Save & Exit on the Start.bat and then Start the server.


decay.bracket_0_blockcount 15 Between 0 and this value are considered bracket 0 and will cost bracket_0_costfraction per upkeep period to maintain
decay.bracket_0_costfraction 0.1 Blocks within bracket 0 will cost this fraction per upkeep period to maintain
decay.bracket_1_blockcount 50 Between bracket_0_blockcount and this value are considered bracket 1 and will cost bracket_1_costfraction per upkeep period to maintain
decay.bracket_1_costfraction 0.15 Blocks within bracket 1 will cost this fraction per upkeep period to maintain
decay.bracket_2_blockcount 125 Between bracket_1_blockcount and this value are considered bracket 2 and will cost bracket_2_costfraction per upkeep period to maintain
decay.bracket_2_costfraction 0.2 Blocks within bracket 2 will cost this fraction per upkeep period to maintain
decay.bracket_3_blockcount 200 Between bracket_2_blockcount and this value (and beyond) are considered bracket 3 and will cost bracket_3_costfraction per upkeep period to maintain
decay.bracket_3_costfraction 0.333 Blocks within bracket 3 will cost this fraction per upkeep period to maintain
decay.debug false N/A
decay.delay_metal 0 How long should this building grade decay be delayed when not protected by upkeep, in hours
decay.delay_override 0 When set to a value above 0 everything will decay with this delay
decay.delay_stone 0 How long should this building grade decay be delayed when not protected by upkeep, in hours
decay.delay_toptier 0 How long should this building grade decay be delayed when not protected by upkeep, in hours
decay.delay_twig 0 How long should this building grade decay be delayed when not protected by upkeep, in hours
decay.delay_wood 0 How long should this building grade decay be delayed when not protected by upkeep, in hours
decay.duration_metal 8 How long should this building grade take to decay when not protected by upkeep, in hours
decay.duration_override 0 When set to a value above 0 everything will decay with this duration
decay.duration_stone 5 How long should this building grade take to decay when not protected by upkeep, in hours
decay.duration_toptier 12 How long should this building grade take to decay when not protected by upkeep, in hours
decay.duration_twig 1 How long should this building grade take to decay when not protected by upkeep, in hours
decay.duration_wood 3 How long should this building grade take to decay when not protected by upkeep, in hours
decay.outside_test_range 50 Maximum distance to test to see if a structure is outside, higher values are slower but accurate for huge buildings
decay.scale 1 N/A
decay.tick 600 N/A
decay.upkeep True Is upkeep enabled
decay.upkeep_heal_scale 1 Scale at which objects heal when upkeep conditions are met, default of 1 is same rate at which they decay
decay.upkeep_inside_decay_scale 0.1 Scale at which objects decay when they are inside, default of 0.1
decay.upkeep_period_minutes 1440 How many minutes does the upkeep cost last? 1440 = 24 Hours
decay.upkeep_grief_protection 1440 How many minutes can the upkeep cost last after the cupboard was destroyed?
