Community Update 146

A very musical community update: beatboxing, moshing, gun syncs, and more.

31 July 2017
Welcome

Usually you'll get an explanation of what the header image is about in this section, but I'm going rogue today. I don't know if you can go rogue from your own rules, or if I'll end up like a cat chasing its tail, but let's see.

I was on the hunt for a fun video when I spotted "RUST MUSICAL CHAIRS!!" on AquaFPS's channel. About two mins in, a guy starts beatboxing over the mic. Now having the keen ears of a cat, and the keen eyes of a cat (admittedly attached to my cat), I figured he was just playing it over the mic like most people do. But the people in the video didn't react like he was. And then he started singing about what was going on right there and then. This fucker was doing it live. He was singing and providing the tunes, blowing my mind. He even does it over a game of musical chairs.

Seriously watch.

That voice is the voice of Mr.Wobbles. I'm ashamed to admit he has channel with a few Rust videos already and I'd missed them. Even better, he's using Rust's own tools to make fun stuff. In this video he set up a shop and sold songs to the customers.

Awesome. I have liked and subscribed the heck out of his channel, and you should too.

Header Art

And here we are. The top of the page has been gleefully yoinked from BRULLAN!, who not only crafted it, but provided the initial sketch as well.

The image they made below was a little too dark to be the header, but it's still excellent.

Such a nice view until you look at the details.

Art!

More art! The scene on the left is from pretoKONG on reddit, who wants to see a periscope in game. The right is Joulusoturi's silhouette.

I also think The Horde's treatment of their maps is art. Via Blubrass.

I'd love to see that when it's completed.

Base Tours

Once again, MikeTheVike has been on base tour of his server. There's a base with a fidget spinner gallery, a monument to Pokie the Bear, and more.

Bob's role-play island is really nice.

Rust IRL

The world got a little bit more 3D this week, with a couple of our in-game items being crafted out of real world pixels. This is PLAYER SLOT AVAILABLE's AK-47. There are many like it, but this one is his. He made it out of EVA foam.

Tommunism48 (great name) requests that we enjoy his coffee can helmet.

Request granted.

Xtab's Skin Picks

Here's a thing. You might have known that 'Xtab' means 'stab', but with an 'X' for some reason. But did you know that his second name, 'Iwillkillyouandyourfamily' is also a cunning play on words? If you look closely, there's an implied threat of murder.

Meanwhile, he's gone through this week's skins on the Workshop and picked out his favourites.

Lots of axes I see. Hmm.

And Finally...

To cap off this very musical edition of the community update, here's Skwealer going metal.

Also... this, by Leftint.
