About Cooking 2.0

This plugin adds a large variety of ingredients, recipes, and effects to your server.
Ingredients can be found from hitting nodes, to cutting to trees to picking hemp, corn, and potatoes.

These ingredients have their own skins and names and are part of the many recipes included with this plugin.

You can also add your own ingredients and create your own recipes via the config, assigning any of the 28 different BuffTypes, along with the desired duration.
Plugin creators can also create their own effects and hook them in using the “Hook” buff.

Patch 1.0.3 onwards requires ImageLibrary to function.

Showcase & Installation


There are over 40 recipes that come with the default configuration.
Each recipe has a list of up to 10 different ingredients and will provide one of 25 unique buffs for a configurable duration.
Recipes can be easily added via the config. The only requirements for this are a unique skin ID and image link.

The above video showcases how recipes can be easily added to your configuration.


The plugin comes with over 35 unique ingredients, and also includes some of the default items in rust. T
Ingredients can be easily added to the configuration (see the above video).

All non-default ingredients can be found from 19 different sources including cutting trees, mining nodes, collecting hemp etc.
Each source’s drop rate can be customized to suit your server, and the sources for ingredients can be changed incredibly easily by simply adjusting a number in the config file.

Gathering Items

There are 19 unique sources that ingredients can be obtained from cutting trees to collecting pumpkins.
The chances for each ingredient drop are based on the interaction with that source.
For example, picking a pumpkin offers 1 chance, as it is 1 interaction to pick a pumpkin, while cutting a tree may be 10-20 chances (depending on the tool), as it takes a number of hits to fall a tree.

When a roll is successful, it then rolls through each item type and selects the item based on that item’s “dropWeight”, allowing you to make ingredients more or less common than others on the same drop table.

Farmers market

The Farmers Market is an in-built market that allows players to buy and sell ingredients for scrap or economics.

By default, the markets stocks will start at 0, and will only increase as players sell their unwanted ingredients to it.

It can be configured to allow all items or only custom items to be bought and sold through it, and also allows for a maximum stock to be set (default 100), meaning that it cannot have more than 100 of an item type.

The buy/sell values for each ingredient can be adjusted in the config file (default $10 buy, $5 sell).

Starting quantities can also be set if you do not want the market to start at 0.

The market can be accessed by typing in /market (if config is enabled) or by speaking to an NPC that matches the market name (default: farmers market).

Required Dependencies

ImageLibrary – Used to handle image caching


Optional Dependencies

HumanNPC – Used if you want the market to be accessed via NPC. Simply adjust the name of the NPC to match what is in the config.

Vanish – Used in the Invisibility buff type.

NightVision – Used in the NightVision buff type.

Economics – Used for the farmers market and the Wealth buff type.

ServerRewards – Used for the market and the Wealth buff type.


Developer API

The following calls require an item to have the “Hook” buff type (#17). They can be added to your own plugin and will be called as the plugin requires them.


object GetBuffDescription(ulong skin)
    if (skin == 2428317574) return "This is sushi and it does stuff";
    else return null;

This API call is called 30 seconds after the plugin loads, and populates the recipe menu buff description with the relevant info.


void RecipeConsumed(BasePlayer player, string name, string shortname, ulong skin, int duration)
    Puts($"Consumed food {name} - short: {shortname} - skin: {skin} - duration {duration}");

This API call is called when a player eats a meal with the Hook buff type. Returns no information.


object BuffRequiresTimer(BasePlayer player, string name, string shortname, ulong skin)
    if (skin == 2428317574)
        return false;
    return null;

This API call is fired just after a meal is consumed to see if the meal requires a buff timer. If false is returned, it will not provide a buff timer/count down, or fire off our next API call.


void RecipeEnded(BasePlayer player, string name, string shortname, ulong skin)
    Puts($"Effect ended - {name}.");

This API call is fired when the buff timer has finished. Returns no information.


bool CanBuyIngredient(BasePlayer player)
    Puts("Returning false prevents the purchase of an item from the market.");
    return false;

bool CanSellIngredient(BasePlayer player)
    Puts("Returning false prevents the sale of an item to the market.");
    return false;

These API calls are made when a player attempts to buy or sell an ingredient to the farmers market. Returning false prevents the transaction.


void OnIngredientPurchased(BasePlayer player, string ingredient, double cost)
    Puts($"Player {player.displayName} purchased a {ingredient} from the market for ${cost}");
void OnIngredientSold(BasePlayer player, string ingredient, double cost)
    Puts($"Player {player.displayName} sold an {ingredient} to the market for ${cost}");

These calls are made when a player has successfully bought or sold an ingredient to the market.

Yeah just delete the config line that has the recipe and it will be removed.

Thank you for the answer. Just made the purchase. Im sure my community will enjoy this very much. Can you please add a link to the reference numbers for effects and gather?

It is in the product description. It has the reference number next to the buff type 🙂

Any way we can get a webhook integration for discord on market sales? I use this to monitor transactions for balance purposes, thanks!

Might be something I can add in the future. If you are developer I can add calls for when an item is purchased/sold and you can take it from there.

I saw you messaged on discord and that you resolved it. What was the issue?

/recipemenu in chat if you have the permissions.

It seems that the players eat the ingredients when they sell them to the Market. This causes unexpected ill effects when they eat items like raw/spoiled meat that are skinned. Could you make it so the items are just removed from their inventory instead of eaten?

Im the new guy go easy D

Interesting. Add me on discord, might have a quick fix for this if you wanted to test it out? im the new guy#0001

imthenewguy – I purchased your hunger games plugin and its amazing. I was looking at this one and its pretty sweet. is there any way to customize the photos and names of the items? I would have more use if it could be implemented for a drug feature on my RP server.

Im the new guy go easy D
15 days 10 hours ago

Its fully customisable. The config houses all of the recipe and ingredient information.
Here are a few snap shots of the config, to give you an idea of what can be edited:
– Ingredients –
– Recipes –

You could quite easily change this into a drug system. I am in the middle of adding a lang system to it as well which should help.

Just bought this plugin for pve server yesterday. Took me hours to configure it! But it’s such an awesome plugin! I can’t wait to hear feedbacks from the players.
Suggestions for development. It would be great if the UI could include grabbing an ingredient from your inventory and dropping it into a pot making it more actionable cooking rather than just clicking on a recipe. Good to include cooking multiple food or put recipes in a queue. Wish we could include more prefab effects such as sounds effects or screen effects for each food items as well. (Because I want to put vomit effect for eating black pudding or fish eye soup) XD
Thank you @Im the new guy go easy D, for a better life in Rust.

Im the new guy go easy D
12 days 8 hours ago

Thanks for the kind words.
Not sure how possible it would be dragging ingredients to a pot due to the nature of CUI. Would be cool as hell though. When FP decides to advance cooking, we may have some more toys to play with.
Queues may be something I look into for sure. Effects are something you can do if you are handy with c# and know how to create a basic plugin/use API calls. There are API calls that trigger when a meal effect starts/ends.

Btw, we noted that occasionally, the ingredients sold to the Farmer’s market will be sold in stacks instead but you receive the money for 1 item instead of the the entire stack.

Im the new guy go easy D

Might be due to the change I made to handle selling an item. I have reworked the method slightly and will be in the next release 🙂

Hello Dev here, When killing animals and finding “Blood” there is no “Blood” in players inventory is this normal or is this a BUG?

thanks mate, did you know about the amount you can buy from /market it only gives one items when buying say x10?

1 day 10 hours ago

I was wondering if you could a chat command players could use to disable/enable ingredient drops for them selves (If possible) as some players might not have an interest in cooking meals and would get annoyed by all the ingredients they gain while farming.

Just thought about it as i really hate all the hemp, berry and other seeds i get when i play vanilla 😀

1 day 10 hours ago

Also, Would it be possible to change the text in the item description to say “Used in recipes to cook meals” or something instead of medkits?

1 day 10 hours ago

Just noticed that if you create another ingredient bag it will contain the same ingredients as the first you made. Would be nice if you could have multiple bags when one is full

Im the new guy go easy D
1 day 8 hours ago

Just pushed an update that allows for the collection to be toggled on and off by using the command /toggledrops.
The description text in rust isn’t changable as it is client side. Would be amazing if it was haha.
The ingredient bags are player bound, and only act as an access point to open the inventory. This is why the chat command is also able to open the same inventory. I have added an option in to the new update that you can opt in for a 30 slot bag, instead of a 12 slot. Simply change the config option from small to large.

Legend! too bad the description cannot be changed, but thats just a small thing, the other two were the main things that would have the most important change 😀

How do I use this .zip/.7z file I just purchased on my server?

• First, you want to unzip the file. You can do so by just double-clicking it to open, then drag the contents to the desired location (you may need to install an external unzipping software if you don’t already have one such as 7zip or winrar)
• Next you will find either a structure of folders or just the .cs file itself (it’s the actual plugin file itself).
• After that just install the .cs (plugin file) into your …/oxide/plugins/ folder where you will install plugins you ever need to.

Additionally, here’s a great video that easily covers adding a plugin to your server if you need!

• Installation is not included with any products on the site, however, if needed we may assist if you reach out to our support.
