Hello. This is a different kind of blog post, and hopefully the first of many. While the dev team has been busy updating Rust’s experimental build, steadily making it the game they know it can be, I’ve been wandering through the community, trying to uncover all the amazing things you’ve been doing with the game.

Welcome

I don’t care when it was made or what form it takes. Everything is new to someone, and my only goal is to celebrate the community’s creativity. I love all the mad shit you make when you play the game, like the incredible piece of fan art I used as the header from Howard Schechtman. The SFW version of the header image is here, if you want to use it as a background. All the images in this post should lead you to the creator. Just click ‘em.

Online Worship

Big builds will always impress me. When I saw The Insane Asylum Churche I had to share it. I actually joined the server, but an encounter with a bear left me unable to confirm if it’s still standing. If not, it looks like this. I’ll try and make another pilgrimage this week.

I should point out that I’m totally willing to join any server if there’s something to see. Screenshots are okay, but if you have made something impressive or deadly or huge, or if there’s something incredibly silly on your server, invite me and I’ll fight my way there. I want to see these things and talk about what it’s like to experience them first hand.

Magical Jukebox Tree

The video below shows a bunch of guys shouting at a tree and the tree responding with music. I’m not making this up. Just watch. It should be pointed out that pretty much every video posted will have some swearing, but as I started this post with a house with “Fuck Off” written across the top, it’s to be expected.

All Hail Garry Newman

Sorry about the potato quality, but silly stuff > pixels. Even with the grim prospect of existing on the bones of your victims, the Rust community is fairly ridiculous. Taking it seriously just doesn’t seem possible when you can worship Garry as a God.

That’s not something I’m comfortable showing the world. Being deified changes you, and if Garry watches it and realises he’s the basis for a burgeoning religion, then there’s a chance the Rust reboot could return to the drawing board: if man is made in God’s image–and if Garry is God–then the player model will have to be radically redesigned…

I’m talking about the penis.

The Tuna Bandits

Speaking of fishy things, one of the better long plays of Rust is the series about The Tuna Bandits. It’s a wonderful exploration of the way people can manipulate others. All you need is a forceful character and a gun. Mostly the gun. The whole series is a terrific amount of very silly content, and and this particular section exemplifies that. It was linked to me by Withnail on the Facepunch Rust forums, saying: “This is the best 15 minutes of human behaviour I’ve seen in Rust. Cracks me up every time.”

It’s part 42 of a lengthy series. It starts with loud music and swearing, and makes paranoia and slavery amusing.

Your Eye On The UI

The blueprint concept is from a forum discussion about Rust and the UI, and it’s an attempt at taking the game’s immersion to a more subtle level. It’s an interesting idea.

Death By Nokia

I’m going to sign off with a few pieces of art that caught my eye. I’m particularly partial to the Nokia on a stick. Knowing what the concept artists are capable of coming up with, it’s a particularly sharp interpretation of the game. I suspect that it’s too brutal, though. By all means kill someone, suck the marrow from their bones, wipe bits of their skull from the cracks of your rock, and loot their corpse. But don’t hit them with a Nokia phone. It’s cruel.

Get In Touch

How to share? We have a new comment system, so you’re welcome to drop things in there. There’s also a forum post I started here, and though it asks for videos in the title, you’re welcome to share anything you want in there. I’ve also created a Reddit thread, and you can throw stuff at our Twitter account.

I want to know every moment that’s worth sharing. Write it down, gif it, draw it, even write a rap over the game’s theme music (this has happened and I’ll share it when I can) This is hopefully just the start. Further down the line, I really want to figure out how we can help people tell their stories in Rust, anything from a comment to longer pieces are valid, from the original game or from the experimental server. Let us know about the tiny moments of humanity shining through the meat grinder of Rust. Go on.

    commandomods I have to disagree here, I wanted that too, but I think the tension of
    sifting through the loot of a corpse you just made adds something
    special to the gameplay with barricading, throwing down shacks to buy time etc. IRL you’d have to do exactly that. I just think the UI for looting needs to be a lot more fluid, which is already happening and that’s great. And I think that there are other ways to combat the slowness of looting, particularly when you’re mid-fight. One thing I want to see is the ability to quickly scoop up a backpack while running past it. Take it to a place that has some cover and quickly pluck out those essential items. Guns, meds, ammo, then get back into the fight. Rather than standing there motionless like a fucking moron just begging to be shot in the face. Then maybe while you were looting, a few of your boys have gone down, you need to retreat, the rest of you pick up their bags and make haste.

    Sooo… I was thinking… a really cool thing thing to add to the game would be a gps tracking collar that you could put on players who you capture. Then if they disobey your orders, you could hunt them down. They could be removed, but it would have to be really difficult.

    you said you like to see some big buildings – here you go. my gsp went out of business so none of these exist any more though. :( 

    I have attached a few pictures of things I built that I did manage to take screenshots of, sorry for the other crap in the pictures…

    first picture is of my boats, to make these, I first had to build up from the foundations 42 floors until at the waters surface…
    second picture is of my floating pyramid, I managed to get a picture of this because I was taking a screenshot of the floating bear….
    third is of a building I call the “Biltmore” lol… it took forever to get done and cost around 4.5 mil lq metal… 

    we had built several huge structures…. one of which was a floating pyramid in the water, it was 15×15 and took 52 levels to get to the surface, another was built by a friend and was a huge cross shaped building that was over 100 foundations long and 75 foundations wide…. that took a while to find a spot that would hold that large of a building.

    This is (SB) Ditronus in the video…the guy who personally wrecked the x17 leader and garnered their cheap respect; or, what little respect they had for being a 17-member clan protected by hackers.
    Pseudo, his cousin, echo, and I raided X17’s base earlier before this video and did a 4 v 8 match where we won.  It was so crazy…but I didn’t record it!  I’m still beating myself up over it.  It was very hectic, and I just forgot!  Good times on this game on US East 3.  I quit, along with Pseudo and Echo, once “Omega” wiped the servers like 5 times in a row.

    Guys are you finally about to update Rust in a good way finally.. and improve the anticheat system, cause it sucks hard. I’ve been sitting in Rust all week in hope that i won’t get hacked.. and everytime i lost my chests i lost my stashes nobody havent got trough the doors or walls it was untouchable. And i think it’s better to start updating the normal rust now not the experimental that is still bugged as hell

    Remember the alien-tree-monster concepts that the devs are thinking of putting into Rust? I have an idea for them! Meteors will crash into
    the rust map in forests and thats how the mutant tree things spawn! Then if you mine the meteor when all the mutant trees are dead or away,
    you get a bunch of iron ore and other ores, and if your lucky, a meteor chunk, which can be used to ” upgrade ” weapons using a workbench.
    Meteor acts like a normal rock, but makes a giant streak of light and a screech in the sky when coming, then a faint/distant boom when
    landing/the event “ending”. The closer you are to the meteor crash, the louder the boom. If meteor falls on player or house, it is destroyed ( The house or the player that is ). When approaching the meteor it will appear as a big, bumpy sphere, halfway burrowed into the ground with a smoke and that cartoony explosion look around it . The meteor itself will give excessive amounts of radiation if you have leather or worse armour/no armour. It is also very strong, and can take a whole pickaxe or two hatchets to mine all the way

    refundplz man i swear ur a dumb ass what are you 13 year olds? i see you crying like a bitch about them redoing the game when you buy the game when its early alpha you cant be that fucking dumb? maybe you are. This game is alpha why the fuck would it be a done game? use ur little brain fucktard if you even have one. guess what also your dumb ass isnt getting a refund if your dumb enough to buy a early alpha and think its gonna be a done game then ur the fucking dumb ass who knows to go back to school and learn to read or learn what a alpha is. god dude stfu and stop ur crying i see you crying so far 4-5 grow a pair play the game or don’t and ur not getting ur money back tough shit. also *Well, when you scrap your entire idea of what the game was going to be after taking so much money from people (over 20million) then of course its going to take ages. If it said on steam they were going to scrap their original game for a “new version” then i wouldn’t have bought into it. Heck if i knew it wasn’t going to get updates in months i wouldn’t of bothered buying in. Expecting it to be finished is stupid. * Righ here shows how much of a dumb ass you are fucking stupid i don’t think i seen anyone as dumb as you. its  ALPHA which means they can do whatever the fuck ever they want to fix or make the game they are MAKING the game. Now please fuck off this and stop crying cause your one dumb mother fucker.

    You should read clearly that it is “early access”. So as you said, you shouldn’t have bought it with that high expectations of fast development. Early access means that it’s being developed, and that’s exactly what they are doing. They just noticed that it is much more efficient to start from scratch as it is then much easier and faster to change, update and improve the whole game. Besides from that, Rust itself now is still worth it’s price in my opinion.
    So please don’t cry about having to wait a bit for a game which is going to be great and still being worked on frequently.

    JLangevin IsraelSalazar Well, when you scrap your entire idea of what the game was going to be after taking so much money from people (over 20million) then of course its going to take ages.

Heck if i knew it wasn’t going to get updates in months i wouldn’t of bothered buying in. Expecting it to be finished is stupid. Some content updates or bug fixes would have been nice. Or maybe not letting the game die on its ass cause of hackers. But they don’t care, they’ve made their money they can be as slow as they want now.

    Love the direction this game is heading!  I hope we keep going in the direction of raw survival and make-shift items rather than find-a-military gun play style.  I’m not an artist, but I would love to see some concepts of early detection; pots and pans on a trip-wire, chickens or wolves held up in pens by your house, etc….and would also like to be able to design various traps for both players and wildlife.
    Being able to “dodge” would also make a big difference in combat.  Use a stamina bar or whatever, but a quick “roll” or “dive” would be extremely immerse.
