Community Update 181

Being a girl, a one million stone upkeep base, whatever the hell that thing up there is, and more.

I haven't yet watched Westworld, so there might be spoilers in the Pitch Dank video below. All I know is that ending is so odd that there was very little chance of it not landing somewhere near the top of the blog.

I believe Ruigi is largely to blame for this.

It appears Banana Duck knows at least one girl who plays Rust, and asked her for her thoughts on being a girl in the game. Luckily, she didn't just scream for an hour.

I'm often mistaken for a young boy, too!

I'm a big fan of humongous bases, so seeing the word in the title of one of MikeTheVike's base tours got a click out of me. And it's obviously giant. Large enough to house a load of Bradleys.

Speaking of large things, on reddit SoleSupremacy_ felt we were missing an oil rig from the game, so they built one.

On our forums, Modigliani built a village.

My two by two is looking rather weedy right now.

That title offends even me, and I almost punned my way out of the Writer's Guild when I uttered the phrase 'Genre-than Creek'. Aside from torturing innocent letters, Blooprint has started a tutorial channel. Simple things, but explaining his thought processes for his decisions.

I like that it's personally based, and not just a straight up description of the game's mechanics.

Ever since the boats have been released, JordanRants spends a lot of time on the ocean. Soloing out in the salty brine, raiding other boat bases.

I'm not sure I'd be so keen to make a flamethrower when in a boat full of fuel.

It's been several million years since I posted a Raid Cam. They seem to have lost their charm amidst our Youtubers, but RiZZa Gaming recently specced a battle on Rustralasia.

He does a decent job of casting it, but it could use some tighter editing and fewer camera swoops.

I wouldn't want to have to sharpen the sword that Xtab has dug up on the Steam Workshop, but it's pretty awesome nonetheless.

Good work.

I started off this week's blog with a TV reference, so I'm ending it on a movie reference.

Via reddit.

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 boats?

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.
