Community Update 130

Star Wars, crashing towers, lots of art, and much more.

4 April 2017

That really is Rust up there in the header. Heavily modified by Boris, but nonetheless it's Rust. Boris the Blade has returned to the game to make a short Star Wars movie, bringing the other Rust famous Australians with him to wield the glow sticks of death: Brunt Force Trauma and Vertiigo.

I believe this was co-written by Jorge Lookarse.

I enjoyed watching Brollow's small casino and shop operate. There's a very basic tension that comes from watching people bet their hard-earned Wood for more Wood, and there were surprisingly few murders. I mean, there weren't none, but most people survived.

Wait, one of those rocks was skinned. Valve is going to shut down Rust :(

As soon as we added the netting, I knew this was coming. MaloneRust on reddit put together an obstacle course using nets, spikes, flame turrets, and more.

Obstacle Course

I love the use of the searchlights for night-based parkour. If you want to visit it, the server link and course location are in the last image.

Two teams, four towers apiece, each team member takes a tower. As the game kicks off, players have to launch rockets from the top of their towers to destroy the opposition's towers. It's a surprisingly tense game mode devised by Shadowfrax.

That first battle was very close. Good job all round.

All these gif burns and meme cuts can only mean one thing: I've been hacking at the brambles of the Steam Community again. Here's what I uncovered. On the left we have Gaz the vampire piggy hunter's Artwork pencil sketch of a base, and on the right is Captain's fan art of a crashed choppa.

Both pieces here are by M.B.M Industries

On the left veys_ryu's made a very stylised door camper, and on the right is Kebablar's clean little base sketch.

Kebablar would also like it if you viewed how his sketch came together.

I like Let's Plays that are challenges to the player, so I watched Guacamole Jones's 99% OF PEOPLE CANT DO THIS CHALLENGE! video to see how he'd react to the various comments. You should, too.

it drifted off at the end there, but I'd love to see more challenges being taken on.

I've hacked the blog of Xtab and discovered what he really thinks of other skinners.

PitchDank's Cody17 has guessed their password, again.

Despite the tone and content, that's actually a nice list.

Think you're working on something awesome? Tell me all about it. Share your base designs, show off a game-mode from your server, or have you done a cool thing with Code Locks and Vending Machines?

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.
