Community Update 207

Charitable Rust, art, base tours, maps, and more.

13 November 2018
I love it when you can see someone's art skills levelling up. If you click on Pheonix's profile on the Steam Community, you'll see they've made several pieces of Rust fan art. The first is in that cut-out style that a lot of people do, but the header much more distinctive. They're asking for ideas for the next piece of art on their profile. Click and let them know!
Rustafied's annual charity live stream is this weekend! Starting Nov. 17th, 2018 from 11am to 11pm EST, the 12 hour event is in support of charity: water. As you can see from the trailer, there's a lots planned. Last year they raised $53,659.81 for Direct Relief.
Once again, WheatleyMF's custom map work is worth cooing over. It feels like glimpses into another place. Reneb made a map inspired by Crater Lake National Park in the US. Having popped on a server running this (F1 menu: connect, it's rather different. It's huge, so large that while standing on one side of the lake you can't see the other side. It's obviously a map designed for boats. And finally... there's Keirox's Drakkar Kingdom map. I have no words for that.
I do love a good base tour, in both senses. This is a good base, and Malonik's visit is a good tour. A lot of work goes into something this simple, so take a look. The base is so OTT... Of course it has a stage and night club. Why wouldn't it? The shop built for newbs is lovely.
Over on DeviantArt, LambdaKoopaTMK drew this couple of cute scenes, and KoeiX2 mashed-up Rust and Beavis and Butthead. And on Steam, Sean McBeer came up with this character. And that was the art.
I quite like this formula that AquaFPS came up with. It feels like a clip show. Of course, we all know there are no rules. Yeah?
The inevitable end of a balloon raid, via bchillz. Perfect.
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.
