Server Custom Emojis
Since the monthly Rust update of the 3rd of August 2023, it is possible for servers to implement custom emojis that players can use in chat.
There are a few technical requirements for what images can be used for emojis :
- No bigger than 256*256 pixels
- Must be
.pngfile format (note:
.jpgwon't support transparency)
- Must be less than
250kbin file size
- 8bit and 16bit Png do not work
Emojis should go into a folder named
serveremoji in your Rust server's directory alongside the
cfg folder and all player data. Emojis can be reloaded on the fly with the
server.resetserveremoji command. It re-scans the serveremoji folder on the server, but clients will need to reconnect to get the latest emojis.
serveremoji folder. ie; poop.png will be :poop: in game. 💩
