Community Update 202

Ape maps, chemists, addiction, and more.

18 September 2018
I quietly linked to the new Rustography site last week, and now Vice--maker of maps and sites--has sent me a few more details. Aside from the maps that will be voted on and hosted, there's new forums for map sharing and chatting. That's for the people who found the Discord just a bit too busy to follow. I like it as a resource as I'd missed Shark Park up till now, a custom map that include the normal monuments with additional cover, puzzles, and islands. Always islands. It's an interesting experiment in density, with a huge number of the monuments within sniping distance of each other. If you base in the bottom left of the map, you'd better be prepared to fight. The site can sometimes fall over, so if that link doesn't work, you can connect to the in-development Shark Park with the F1 console and connect
The voice of Swaggersouls is a weapon itself. Watch as he manages to convince people to trust him. I also like the attempt to talk his way out of an arrow to the skull. His voice... it's like Howard Stern doing a Peter Griffin impersonation.
If you squint, you can see the cloning facility mezamorphis is making with our assets. I love seeing things like this. I also had to lighten them. The 'remastered' Legacy map from The Horde now has a trailer. Take a look. The Horde also hosted an event for CoconutB. The server has an island in the shape of an ape's face. JordanRants hopped onto a custom map server hosted by Shadowfrax. Here's how he fared. Shadow's Pie Ground is joinable with connect' in the F1 console.
Sometimes there's great work done in Rust that you'll almost never get the chance to encounter. The Chemists faction on Rust Factions are doing that for this current era (wipe). They now have two escape rooms. Here's a recruitment video they put together. And here's their in-game planetarium. In a world as fraught as Rust, with the addition of rules for war and more, perhaps someone with a keen understanding of the machinations would be a help? I found Michael Frost, Attorney at Law advertising on the subreddit. I love that he exists.
Sometimes people play other games. Non-Rust games. This is Malonik's story. WoW. Just WoW. Welcome back!
Some people are content to just play the game, but not DeerryteTV. He lived it. Is Rust worth swimming into a lake for? That was the most low-budget take on Rust I've ever seen, which is ironic given how well made some of the props were.
On this day, when HOLM went for food, he returned at just the right time. That's why you always snack and game.
Think you're working on something awesome? Tell me all about it. Share your map designs, show off a game-mode from your server, let us see your cool base. There's a dedicated forum, or you can fish for upvotes in the subreddit. 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.
