RUST Hapis Community Project Launches Next Custom Map Update

The Hapis: Trains & Caves update for the Hapis Community project will launch with RUST’s July update on 6th July 2023. In this major map update, the development team has added nearly a dozen new features to the map, including above-ground trains, new monuments, and a complex cave system. 

Players can now run the unloading event on Hapis with the addition of the Coaling Tower—shunt unloadable wagons to the coaling station in K13 to access their goods and resources.

What is the Hapis Community Project

In February 2023’s Industrial Update for RUST, Facepunch Studios announced it would end official support for the static Hapis map after struggling to update it over recent years. The team was many updates-worth of features behind and many hundreds of hours away from keeping the map updated with current development, so the decision was made to retire Hapis officially.

A group of community map makers decided to take on the task of the map’s upkeep and development and created the Hapis Community Project.
