A phaerewell to Phaedo 82, a glorious city build, a really cool base tour, and more.
Long-time Rust Youtuber Phaedo 82 is leaving Youtube to take up the position of ‘father’, a demanding job where the hours change regularly and there’s a definite chance of getting poo where you never, ever wanted poo to be. I’m very glad he’s leaving on his own terms, without drama and with people wanting more. Here’s what he had to say on the matter.
His silken vowels are incredibly calming–that kid is gonna love bed-time stories–while managing to make analysis entertaining. He took the admin spectate camera and used it in a way we never intended: filming the action as a roving reporter and giving insight that helped people understand micro and macro elements of the game. I asked him what he’d like to be remembered for, and though he often took the time to make Rust look epic with his raid cams, he preferred A Day in Rust. I do, too. There’s seven of those, so he at least got to a week. Here’s the first from May of this year.
If you want to know how well liked Phaedo 82 was, Dean Central gathered a bunch of other Rust video makers who wanted wish him all the best.
Wow, watching that has made me realise that Rust Youtubers have the best voices.
KCmo Visits uRxP
Speaking of voices, KCmo’s channel has been doing rather well of late. He has a voice that sounds like time travel and a keen eye for the game. Also, he’s been using Tatten to make his video thumbnails pop.
KCmo’s thing is base building–most of his vids are slightly cheaty building tutorials– and here is taking us on a tour of a huuuuuge base with the residents. It’s interesting to hear about a base’s design from the day-to-day users of that base. There’s nothing conceptual about this compound.
Someone should invite him to Rust Factions.

Up popped up All Hail Geek with a video of it.
It is now wiped.
Just a few small things from the community. On the left is M.B.M Industries’ idea for a Pipe Carbine, in the middle is a Rust anime character by CommanderGrim, and on the left is MisterStroodle’s hand-made Bean Can Grenade.
