I just started my Rust server but can't join it?

If you boot a brand new Rust server it will first have to generate your world, all of our servers are given a unique seed by default and this can take up to 10 minutes to generate, everytime you change the server seed or world size you will generate a new map and again this can take 10 or so minutes, you can view the progress via web console or rcon. 

 

We have a unique system in place that detects a server generating a new seed, In this scenario, our system will take your server and bind it to a dedicated core for map generation, this is to get around a bug where Rust uses near 100% of the CPU usage while generating maps this means we can keep our whole server machine more stable and stop random lag spikes on other clients servers.
