PlayRust - Rust Extreme Basics: Key bindings and settings - Frame Rate tips

If you are asking, "How do I..." then hopefully your answers are below.  This is a compilation of all the keybinds and settings I could find for Rust through the official forum, pages, steam forum and anywhere else. This should be a complete list, but feel free to let me know if I missed anything.

Rust Gameplay Settings:

Important Settings.

Resolution: When starting Rust from steam, consider using windowed mode and a resolution just smaller than your screen when you are new to the game.  You won't get as much immersion out of it, but it will make referencing the internet or this guide for help much easier.

Frame Rate Tips: To improve framerate, here are a few things you can try.

1. press F1 to open your console when connected to a server.  Type "grass.on false" without the quotation marks.

2. Change the video quality settings.  This must be done before you connect to a server.  Start the game, click Options, change the Graphics "Render Quality" to something lower, then click apply changes.  Then log into your favorite server.

3. Lower your Startup Resolution: If the first two options don't make the game playable, you probably need to play the game at a lower resolution.  Do this when you first start the game from steam, by changing the resolution in the resolution drop down menu before you press play.

4. Lower Anti-Aliasing: Turn down the Anti-Aliasing of your video card in the video card settings or game profile in your video card software to 2x.

Important Console Commands:

F1 console command result
gui.hide_branding removes the top right banner branding.

gui.hide hide the graphical user interface. Show the graphical user interface.
net.connect Connect to server address.
