Community Update 119
Maps as art, real-world Semi-Auto Pistols, a heli-to-heli fight, and more.

Welcome

The disembodied--yet calming--voice of GoryashchiyeKlyuchi has returned to Rust to craft another gun in the real world. As usual, he's so perfectly captured the Semi-Auto Pistol from the game it's tough to look at without your brain tricking you into thinking it's a screenshot. Here's how he made it, and how you probably can't.

His previous work is awesome, too.

Reddit Charts

I'm not sure where it started, or how it started, or even if there was a definite start point, but reddit has amused itself for the past few weeks by charting various parts of the game. It's an impossible task to chart how everything effects everything else in the game, but they've made a nice start.

Actually, clicking on my own link, I think it started with Biohazard72's explosive cost chart.

Then the site was awash with charts, showing ridiculous dedication to parsing the various whacks and thumps of the game into resources. Take a look at this tree chart from luizmp

Farming Trees Chart

There's more. Have a look. Note to any future Rust players visiting this page from the year 2029: these charts are almost certainly out of date, but hello from the past! We're sorry for all the bombs and radiation. How is Mars?

Surge Plays Rust

Surge is better known for his cinematic Rust work, and there's no-one better at that right now, but he's also been trying out some Let's Plays. He's a good player, but this is in here for the little cinematic flourishes he adds into it. The intro is great.

I'd really like to see how he'd frame a whole battle just as an observer.

Art

I honestly love it when people use the map as a canvas for art, so really dug AriYuki's map scrawl on the left. I was also happy to see Biased Bread's cute little Rust scene.

I'd be so happy to find Ari's map in the world.

hJune Soloing

hJune's guide to being a solo player. Not sure I agree with all the genital allusions, but this is worth it for The Tale of the Lost AK.

I like the combination of live dialogue mixed with a voice over.

And Finally...

Here's what a Rust helicopter battle looks like from inside the cockpit, modded into the game using this Oxide server mod.

Thanks, ThatGermanGuy.
