Community Update 175

Lots of musical moments, how to solo to AK, Vertiigo returns, and more.

He's been in the header slot enough times now that I can recognise an original Brullan from all the counterfeits sitting in museums and appearing on the Antiques Roadshow. For one, his work is digital.

This time around we have two original Brullans: a scene, and a banner. Both contain Dick Butt.

We are blessed to have such talented and regular artists.

Some people build bases out of Spinners, but MadMaxGamer built a Kraken!

Modigliani made a church. Some good use of our nets.

And 8bitsparkle built a bar.

So much RP.

Rust is a game where you can watch a bear devour your own corpse, and then end up with a surprising rivalry with them. Vertiigo is back, and he's as ridiculous as ever.


It's good to follow something calamitous with some sick plays or whatever. So I watched some Welyn and you should too.

Like a palate cleanser. Actually, I have a better idea...

Music is full of rivalries. Oasis vs Blur. Simon vs Garfunkel. Coldplay vs my ears. So it only makes sense that the people of Rust would make music when they're not making raids. That way they can be creative, but still retain the ability to have a fight if they fancy a go. To end this paragraph, where my rivalry with the concept of an analogy has once again reared its head, here's TenshiH returning to Rust to cover Super Mario with a guitar. As usual, 50% of why this is great is in the supporting building.

Elsewhere, StereoCartridge covered the Rust menu song.

There's more music to come. Stay tuned!

Here's hJune on the best route for a solo player to claim the AK.

He should probably mention that you need to be as good as he is. That seems like an important step.

If you've ever watched any of the Evil Dead movies, you'd know that even acknowledging the Necronomicon's existence basically unleashes hell. And yet Xtab goes into the Steam Community every week, the modern day book of the dead, and looks at hundreds of things. He's probably the most possessed person in existence nowadays. Anyway, here's his favourites from this week.

Klaatu barada... necktie?

The musical theme* ends on a note that's neither high nor low; it's just a noise. Soup plays Rust with a Guitar Hero controller.

*Ok, it's more of a smear than a theme.

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.
