Virtual Quarries

Virtual Quarries plugin ( is a large upgrade to quarries in RUST. You can create and place quarry that will dig any type of resource and access them all over the map! VQ’s work as follow:

Buy or craft a quarry and several survey charges. You will need 1 survey charge for each attempt to find the resources you want to mine. Next, type /vq to open the Virtual Quarries menu. Press the + symbol.

On the next page, click on the Search button. One Survey Charge will be used. You may or may not uncover resources. If you are happy with the resources you found, continue to the next step. If not, continue pressing Search until you’ve found what you want or until you are out of Survey Charges. When you found what you want, click on the Place button as seen below.

Once that is done, you’ll be brought to a screen like the one below where you can put fuel in your VQ and start/stop/delete it.
