Hello. The patch on Thursday is going to change a bunch of stuff. We have a new Unity update (going from 5.4 to 5.6) and the new Ai system.
We want to fill the test server with people to catch any large performance issues or dumb Ai issues before we actually release.
You can switch to the staging branch on Steam, by right clicking on Rust, going to properties, then choosing staging here:
Then join the “Facepunch London – Staging” server and play normally. The server will update/restart quite often, but we’ll try to keep it to a minimum, and unless it crashes there should be plenty of warning beforehand.
If you find any bugs, have performance issues, or just want to tell us how dumb the new Ai is please do so in this forum.
