Community Update 184

One of the worst 'plays' I've ever seen, roleplaying excellence, and more.

A disclaimer: this is about a mod, not an official game mode. It's fan-made. It's not a thing we've made, nor an announcement. It's just a cool bit of art. And so...

The header is the logo for the Zombie Mod server, which you'll be surprised to hear introduces puppies and kittens to the - no, wait. That's just my shopping list. It's about zombies, and killing them. Here's their trailer.

As someone currently looking into modded community servers for future blogs, good luck!

I watched LittleB's "Raiding My Own Home" video largely because of the title. It seemed like the confession of a clumsy player, which is still rare in the Rust community. I wasn't disappointed.

I don't want to list what happens, but he wakes up to a raided base and then tries to rectify the issue. What follows is... well, not what you'd call a 'sick play'. The boat section is amazing.

It's all done with a lovely sense of self-deprecating humour, so I immediately subscribed.

Raid cams have become a dying art in Rust. It's not surprising, as they require a lot of work AND admin cam access. Luckily Rizza Gaming is still around. This raid starts off slow, because there's no-one in the base that's being attacked, but there's a plot twist that makes it more interesting.

Good work. Keep them coming!

Time for art! Caroli on Steam has been doing a series of neat little animated scenes. There's more on their profile, but here's a couple.

And SkunkKnuckles made a 'Bean-Candle Grenade'.

Ah, art.

This is a well-made video by Stevie about a smart piece of roleplaying, one that managed to turn a raid on its head just when they thought they'd gotten away with it. There's some lovely work here to fill in the viewer.

"Well that's awkward!"

No video from Xtab this week, apparently it was a bit of a quiet week down in the skin mines, but he still managed to dig up some for your consideration.

I seem to be wearing nothing but targets whenever I play, so I'd avoid that awesome chestplate.

Superhuman OG came across a naked country-singing zerg.

He didn't lie.

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.
