Community Update 136
A new Rust trailer, rocking out in game, an excellent Rust Zone, and more.

16 May 2017

Welcome

There's a lot to be said about an impressive build on a vanilla server. "Ooh!" And perhaps, "ahh!" I made those noises and more--and then had to apologise to my neighbours--when I spotted ReptarKitawa's reddit post about having built a bridge with a shop on it on Rustopia EU. Funnily enough, I also made a noise that sounded like 'EU' when I looked at the screenshots. A build this strange needs Admin cam.

They've done a real good job of settling into that little hilly nook. I really love how it's part of the flow of the land.

Rust Guitar God

Skwealer's video is an enjoyable short about a Rust guitar competition. It turns out you can't even strum in Rust without ending up fly food.

Never forget: Rust is a survival game.

New Trailer

Well, kinnnnda. At the beginning of the year, Surge crafted a trailer and asked us if we wanted to use it. We uhmed and ahhed a bit, but there's no denying the quality of the work, or the style in which he made it. Anyway, long story short we've decided that it's probably the best representation of Rust we have. If you missed it back then, take a look.

Really nice work, Surge.

Art

On the left, CrackaDon_YT's artsy little sketch of a roof-camper had some nice touches. And veys_ryu's camera concept on the right was well thought out.

And on the Steam Community, Brullan drew out a different view of Rust, alongside some rock ideas.

That was Art.

Rcham's Trap Base

There's at least one good arguement for not running into any open door you might see in Rust. You might end up in Rcham's trap base, and then on his Youtube channel. If that happens, you might end up having to kill your clanmates...

That was mean.

Religions Of Rust

I have been informed of a server that's dedicated to what I can only imagine as all-our religious war. Teams, or clans, are there to represent a 'religion', and though that might sound sacrilegious, there's an obvious element of roleplay going on. Apparently the largest religion on there will be 'favoured by the Gods'. I can't wait to read the admin abuse reports. Here's a look at one of the settlements.

I believe you need faith to join.

Xtab's Skin Round-Up

Xtab has once again taken time from his own schedule to poke about the skin workshop. Here's what he found.

And Finally...

The Rust Zone has more lore than you imagined.

Via those PitchDank types.

Get In Touch

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.
