War reports, diaries, art, and more.

23 January 2018
MrStonar's art sits at the top of the page and asks the question (on reddit): "Remember your first base...?". I have a screenshot of the first base that was mine, only mine, and not one I just found and plopped a door on. See if you can spot the difference between it and the art: Quite a journey, really. Thanks to anyone who joined us on it. We're not even close to the end.
I'm going to have to set the scene for this. The Rust Factions subreddit has sparked back into life, and knowing how the players track the comings and goings on the server--and the war declarations--I took a look this week. I found The Complete Diary of Christophe Poulin, a work of Rust fiction that deals with the player landing on the island and coming to terms with "sounds of violence were as common as clouds", and the political and non-political dealings on the server. It's all heavily stylised and quite long, but also a good example of how far people will take their role-playing on Rustifac Island. Thanks, scifidude47. Speaking of Rust Factions...
It would be very easy for me to just ctrl-c ctrl-v Rust Factions. I was tempted to give them their own section this week, but it's worth it for the section headlines. You're about to read a war report from scrimhog, who was there when his faction, WAR, got involved in a scuffle with (sigh) GANJA. The two factions declared war and it was on like Donkey Kong. They say history is written by the victors, and that's the case here. It's a long read, but worth it. Also: "It was already late into the night for most WAR members and at least half of our soldiers would have to go to sleep soon and the battle hadn't even begun yet." Fucking Rust. Scrimhog was also involved in the building of the Senate. That's an amazing building.
Welyn has put together a little supercut of his time in Rust. Turns out he's been good for a while! Definitely worth following if you need inspiration for playing solo. He's his own zerg.
Tomz on the Facepunch forum crafted a metal face mask. And now he's presumably on the run.
Just a couple of bits this week. On the left, KeyboardNinja27 made a little scene; on the right there's Credditz42's... well, thing. Arts!
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Sorry, I just spotted the bone knife skin on aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah Xtaaaaaaaaaaaaab's latest skin round-up. It'll paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas. I'm not showing it off here. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah...
According to Revlis, "99.999% of Rust players get aroused watching this": Don't @ me if you were. Just clean up after yourself.
Think you're working on something awesome? Tell me all about it. Share your base designs, show off a game-mode from your server, talk about your time in the world or Rust. 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.
