Community Update 139
The evolution of a Rust player, Brunt Force Trauma's weekly update show, a solo raid that needed better planning, and more.

Welcome

Sorry if your favourite memes have taken too long to load this week, but I've been F5ing reddit, waiting for MrGoose0 to complete his budding masterpiece.

He eventually completed it a few days ago. The full thing is below and it's pretty awesome.

If you want to wear it on a shirt, you can grab one here.

Nerfed Weekly

The trepedation I get when clicking on a Brunt Force Trauma video is palpable. BFT's work is generally so OTT and gross that I can't always put them on the blog, despite how incredibly well made they are. They're too good at being bad.

This one is fine. Great, even. It's their take on a weekly Rust update show, using what could generously be called 'creative licence'. If this doesn't end up in some horrible crossover with The Rust Zone, I will be very upset.

Please don't tease. You promised a weekly show, and I'll have a space for it next week if is. JUST DON'T BE GROSS! <3

The Power of the Gun

Once again, Banana Duck has managed to turn out a fun cinematic. I love the little classroom scene.

I think you're building up to something epic. But do a bit less nodding, please. Our animation of that isn't epic.

Solo Raid

I was looking for some normal game footage as there's been a lot of cinematic stuff lately. I ended up at JordanRants' channel, where he details an offline raid. It's amusing to watch how bitsy the raid turns out to be: lots and lots of stopping to get more raid tools, because most of his plans are based on the idea that the next door will hold something. Then the next. And the next...

Finally! I wonder how long that took in real time?

The Mask

DigitalGamer101's video about what people are capable of when they don't have to look at themselves in the mirror. Or something.

That's why generally, in my day-to-day life, I don't wear masks.

Gyrocopter

DIS-FUCKING-CLAIMER: This is a mod. It's obviously a mod. No, it won't be coming to the game. No, it's not something we're working on. It's something someone has made for the Oxide plug-in.

AGAIN: THIS ISN'T OFFICIAL. Love, Craig.

And with that disclaimer out of the way, Colon Blow's (that is an uncomfortable name to type) Gyrocopter mod popped up on reddit this week. The implementation is obviously ad-hoc. I ummed and ahhed over posting it, but I really love the use of existing game elements to build something different, and if this were just fanart then I'd definitely have posted it. So here we are.

NOT OFFICIAL!

Xtab's Skin Round-Up

Hereeeeeeee's Xtab.

Love the oil barrel armour.

And Finally...

The people at The Horde opened a mall.

That music...

There's a dedicated forum post, or you can fish for upvotes in the Subreddit. I also shuffle around the the Steam Community, so feel free to show me to things from there. You can follow and respond to Rust on Twitter, and I'm on there as well.

I can't respond to everything, but I read every comment and take it all in.
