Map Editors


Facepunch doesn't provide their own map editor – but we have tools to make it (Rust.World SDK). At this moment there are two map editors available.


RustEdit is a standalone map editor (meaning it is a click-to-run executable) with a range of tools for terrain, splat, biome, topology, alpha and prefab editing. Simplicity and good amount of features makes it preferred for beginners and regular map makers. Keep in mind that some tools are limited and available only for Patreon members.

This editor has its own Oxide extension that implements some missing features from the Rust.World SDK through modding, allowing you to modify Cargo Ship/Bradley APC paths, create your own puzzles and modify/add custom vending machines and loot tables. It also fixes some minor issues with deployable objects, respawn timers of crates and collectable resources, etc.

You cannot modify or add any tools within the editor – so if you want to do something that is hard or impossible to do with RustEdit, you should consider trying out the editor below.



RustEdit Oxide extension page – this is an Oxide extension that provides support to custom IO, APC/Cargo path, NPC spawners and some other RustEdit-specific features.

RustEdit IO as a Harmony mod by bmgjet – this is a free alternative for those who need to support custom IO created in RustEdit for custom maps but do not plan to use Oxide. Keep in mind that this is not a full replacement for the Oxide extension, it supports only custom IO logic.

Rust Map Editor

Rust Map Editor (formerly known as Rust Map Making Editor, aka RMME) is an open-source map editor for Unity Editor made by Adsito. It provides the same basic functions as RustEdit and gives much more opportunities for terrain and splat editing. It is recommended only for advanced map makers that have experience of working with Unity and C# (recommended but not necessary)

Since it is based on Unity Editor and open-source, you can import third party editing tools via packages or Asset Store, or code your own tools.
