5. Setting up your server (only needed for the chatlog feature!):
For this head over to uMod and install oxide. Then move the RustyWatcher.cs file into your ./oxide/plugins folder. In case you are using BetterChat also be sure to update to the one I include in this file as it adds an essential API method.
Discord Bot Token
If you don’t know what a discord bot token is, or how to retrieve it, then have a look at this guide.
Discord Webhook Url
Since on high populated servers the chat can get heated and therefore a lot of messages sent in a short period of time, I opted for using Webhooks instead of the usual message embeds as they can contain multiple embeds per message.
You can create a Webhook via right-clicking the channel you want to receive the chat messages in, then ‘Edit Channel’, next head over to ‘Integrations’ and click ‘Create Webhook’. There you will find the option ‘Copy Webhook Url’.
Steam API Key
To allow for the steam icons to show in the chatlog you need to provide a Steam API key. You can find/create your own Steam API Key here.
