This is such a good build that it ruined my workflow. I'd already written an opening. It was done. I was golden. And then I was linked to MaloneRust's Motel on reddit and I really wanted to see it at the top of the site.
It's perfectly evocative of a run-down motel on the edge of nowhere, cleverly using natural water for the pool. I really love the 'Motel' sign, the layout of the rooms, and the corridors with vending machines.
Seeing a player-made building in Rust that isn't designed to repel raiders, nakeds, or the rest of Rust's denizens always thrills me. Bases are usually so practical--which is very understandable--that building for the server and not for yourself is tough. I hope it was appreciated on that server.
I'd love to be part of a community like this on a server. Role-play 4 life, yo.
The art this week is from Blam!, who has been experimenting a little and made a series of Rust backdrops in this style. Here:
I love it when people are inspired by Rust to do their own thing with it.
Since we added shops and vending machines, I've been particularly keen to find videos where the interaction was based solely around them. Grizzly's video is about that. And though this leans heavily on trolling people with the shop, it's pretty funny.
Contagious laughter is a real problem.
Enardo made a little video about how pretty the game is.
I do love a good Dutch tilt.
Pig gun! PIG GUN! Xtab's uncovered the oinkiest gun in all of Rust.
We have in-game chat and mail boxes. There's things like Discord and Teamspeak. Hell, there's even Steam chat. That's what makes the way redditor RockandRoll682's neighbour communicates with him so darn adorable.
The funny thing is it works.

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.
