A handmade aircraft carrier, boating on land, bases, art, and more.1 May 2018
Rust has had a fairly nautical feeling of late. With the addition of boats to the game, and the upcoming diving gear, we've embraced life on the open waves. And it seems you lot have, too. The header is AndyCGYan's incredible base. An aircraft carrier sat in the shallows of a Rust server. As always, it's the details that stand out: they've used the Christmas strip lights as landing lights. That's awesome.
And below, if you care about boating, there's a little boathouse.
It even allowed visitors.
We have more boat based bases to come.
Just like in Werner Herzog's film Fitzcarraldo, Ser Winter has chosen to push a boat across the land. And he also chose to narrate a journey that took him through invisible oceans as the land grasps the boat's hull. This is weird...
Next patch we're adding land sharks. That'll stop such nonsense.
Art time! Rizza Gaming felt Rust could use some currency. The Dome is a particularly nice touch.
Futch's paintings in-game aren't always going to be easy to find, so they've created an online gallery for people to look in.
Finally, Wilsonrats made a cardboard AK47.
Art time is now finished.
Bases. Like children, they demand upkeep and protection, and then they're raided. So why bother? Because they can be ace, too. Look!
Mom's been at it again. This time she's built a lovely little boat-hire shop on the official reddit server.
The boats are making a nice change to all kinds of bases, as you can see during MikeTheVike's latest base tour.
And then followed it up with a base made of doors, which housed a special player.
I'm totally skeptical, too. But it's fun nonetheless. Finally, Modigliani has once again graced our forum with a roleplayer base. The little wires leading from the 'solar panels' are lovely.
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.
