Community Update 172

Inside the weirdest house in Rust, amazing mods, and more.

20 February 2018 (9 Comments)

That 'Welcome' up there really should be written in the bloody scrawl of a dying man, poisoning those who even dare to look upon its eldritch, er, font. But I do what I can. Also, I'm not writing this; bound, as I am, in the bowels of Crotchrot Manor, a condemned building clinging to the edge of Little Italy, a city on Rust Factions, you, reader, are receiving this via telepathy. Neat, eh?

I was on the subreddit, poking about, when I discovered MadMaxGamer's tale of the condemnation of CrotchRot Manor due to demonic activity. The raising of demons, the awfulness inside, flesh growths on the walls. I had to take see for myself...

I'm not going to show it all off, because it's built to be experienced, but here's a couple of screenshots get a sense of the horror that abounds. It's not just image spam: there's a really clever bit of building that extends the base, leaving anyone inside (help!) very confused as to where they are. Maybe when the server wipes, we can take a more detailed look into the horror inside.

I give this the highest score imaginable: 3/10! Oh, speaking of Rust Factions...

It was this video that dragged me back into the Rust Factions this week, showing brief glimpses of the world amidst some blurry fighting. Honestly, next time I'd love to see an Era's builds summarised without any fighting on the channel:

And MikeTheVike takes a trip around a few bases on his server.


Via Shadowfrax's Discord, Ovion Illiartes concepted a few triangular items. A Triangle Ladder Hatch, and a Twin Nailgun Ceiling Turret

And on reddit, MrStealYoThroAway 3D printed and painted a small furnace, and added an LED to give it a comforting glow. He barely needed to kill anyone for the resources!

Great stuff!

An occasional dip into the world of Rust's VERY UNOFFICIAL mods. You know, stuff people make and put on servers. Canyourubmybuddha's channel is a diverse mix of such things. First up, there's a fun retconning of cameras and turrets to create remote control searchlights and turrets via 'RustNet'.

Next up, there's a bit of fun from the same modder: an Earthquake simulator!

Via reddit. I've been pondering where to put this one, so here is as good as any place. The peeps over at Patchbot have made a Rust Discord bot that drops the latest patch notes into your Discord channels.

Great stuff.

The usually short form Welyn has as two-parter up, where a death inspires him to keep going back. Here you go.

I think he died more in that pair of videos than the rest of his channel combined.

You've got the official forums, reddit, Twitter, even the Steam Community. But if you're really on the lookout for another place to gather and chat about Rust, there's a Rust Amino. There's 8k people on there already, and it's run by the lovely LtBucket, who has appeared on these pages thanks to his art.

That's all. Sign up if you want.

I'm a big fan of small details, so I have a lot of love for the SAP skin in Xtab's latest round-up.

I mean, "mute button" is just objectively great.

Striker makes these stylised little shorts, freezing the action and swooshing the camera.

That's all, folks.

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, or you can fish for upvotes in the sub reddit. 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.
