What a Rust map looks like from space, the Church of the Sad Wolf, and Rust server mods.

Welcome

If Rust had an eagle, it would have this view. As it is, we have server admins, plug-ins, and post-processing, which are a bit less elegant than nature, but have the bonus of not pooping on you from above. Server owner innominatargh generated what I believe is the first map view of a proc-gen level. It wasn’t easy. He had to use a server plug-in to teleport around the map, stitch the pieces together in Photoshop, remove the UI and tweak exposure settings. He even replaced the water. The result speaks for itself.

Now I want to see if a map can be made that shows of all the buildings. That’s the next step.

After looking at this image, Facepunch’s Forbidden Chatroom of Mystery started talking about the possibilities of mapping servers “just for fun”. That said, I’m in favour it coming into the game, perhaps having a map be an ultra-rare object using Howie’s satellite dish to gather the data. But I am just a writer man. Curse my lack of programming skills!

As usual, the Rust community used the idea to consider other ideas. The view brought up some talk of bridges spanning those gaps. Which leads me neatly onto the top image: another piece of speculative fan art by aledroid, again. Who needs bridges?

Pluton

One of the tools used to create that map was a server-side mod called Pluton, which has spread through servers rather speedily. Pluton does a bunch of different things: allowing servers to broadcast all sorts of messages (who has joined, who killed who); it enables teleportation; it can schedule airdrops. There’s loads more, but if you’re in the mood to break out of vanilla Rust, the ‘modded’ section of the Rust server browser is full of servers running their own variations of the game.

The Church of the Sad Dog

Detail is often overlooked when it comes to builds. Big things are impressive, but if you can do fine work then I’m totally excited to see what you’ve made. We don’t have seats implemented into the game, never mind benches, so when S8.Zephyr started building his church in the body of a wolf, he had to improvise. Check out what he used to make his holy building work.

It’s great to give people the tools they need to build things, but I really love seeing people using alternative methods as well. Lovely work.

Get Lost

With all that said, large builds can also be detailed. And what’s a maze if not just a lot of detail? Legendary artificer CitizenVII crafted his confusing creation on the official Seattle server, so if you found it feel free to tell us about your experiences in the comments.

I love the idea of coming across a maze plopped on the landscape: buildings will mostly serve the builder in Rust, but this was for everyone to enjoy. More of this, please.

Silly Bandits

“Hopefully the bullet won’t ricochet off his bucket helmet and kill both of us.” – banditry will always be a part of Rust, partly because it’s a fast way to make a pile of metal fragments, and partly because it’s fun. Youtubers Geeks With Games put together a cheerful montage of the fun they had fucking people over. I can’t condone what you’re about to see, as I am nice and only kill in self-defence, for revenge, or at night when Bad Craig stalks the land, but it did make me want to grab a friend and mess people up.

It’s good to see Nu Rust is capable of giving people a horrible time.

Team Fortrust 2

I am internet famous for liking unofficial Rust recreations of famous game maps. I also have almost 1000 hours in Team Fortress 2, and once realised during a review that I had to uninstall it for the sake of other games. The solution is for someone to build TF2 in Rust, which is what Killercon did in Legacy. I know every twist and turn of 2Fort, and he’s done a very good job of turning out TF2’s most interminable map. He even included the spawn rooms.

Points are lost for not making Badwater, but it’s otherwise excellent. If you’d like to see it, here’s how:

Here is TF2 map 2Fort built as an arena in Rust. My buddies and I had a blast making this and thought we would share it with everyone. I only recorded one side of the map as the other side is exactly the same. If you would like to see this arena live type net.connect 172.241.151.194:28075. Once you connect, simply type /spawn and you will be teleported to the arena.

I just checked and it’s still up.

Get In Touch

Got a song, a suggestion, or anything you want to say about Rust?

There’s a dedicated forum post, or you can post in inky depths of Reddit. 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. We also have a dedicated site for suggestions and bug reporting.

I can’t respond to everything, but I read every comment and take it all in. Just be nice.

    PlzListenToMe PVE would make everyone friendly or as near to it as they can, as they can’t attack anyone :)
    as for the game being made for PVP I don’t see it that way you don’t need PVP for a game to be fun.
    you want to go out and kill players there are games like that Rust can go both ways and be fun for all players.

  14.  
      PlzListenToMe

    No… its a game made for PVP! It isnt ment to be PVE…. if u want PVE try find another game or make everyone on the server friendly

    The lock system is broken its impossible to come back from dying and losing your keys even if your in your own house. locked in a room the only thing you can do is spend hours hacking a the door to break it down. Make the locks upgrade able so we can have codes again the key system seems cool but when its in use it has major game breaking issues. I love this game and have 400 hours in but the door system is just to much to deal with. spend 5 hours upgrading your house and then lose it cause you die in your house with the key to a room you are locked in. Please do something about this i dont want to stop playing this game i really do love it.

    Hey guys, good work, just Wow! I got a neat suggestion, most likely will not be in the game due to it being such a game changer, but came across this idea as i was hitting the ground with my axe. Make a destroyable world. Carve into mountains, make a ant tunnel in the ground. It would be massive, lets say maybe it can be a option to add to your server, simply go to the config if you want a destroyable world or not. Now just to remind you, I’m not one of those 9-year olds that just come up with amazing shit like I just did ;). I am a 16 year old java programmer, i understand that this would take some work, I dont know how guys have setup unity, but hopefully you could implement it into the procedural map generation or maybe not :/. I would appreciate it if you would review this in the Friday Devlog. Just remeber i am a game dev as well. I do understand the amount of time it would take to actually choose a road if you will go for it or not. I also understand that it may make some people dislike the game. Well scratch that due to the maybe possible config.txt file being able to change it. FYI, you could probably just make a variable and if 1 then destroyable map if 0 then not. That kind of thing. Hopefull you can review this over with and why you may or may not implement this. Good game, pssh hell, Badass game. 

    Good luck,

    imnukingfuts thanks for your advice, I shall take that into consideration. However, for the time being as I am using a Mac, would there be any other solutions or fixes? “Legacy” works fine on Ultra settings, its just the new Rust doesn’t seem to want to start at all.

      babyfartmagysak

    hey Garry i hope you read this. i just love the idea of rust this is the game i have been playing for the longest time. but when i try what you made the real rust/experimental. i think it needs some thing. i dont have the same felling when i am playing its as in the old rust. put more guns and armor in would be really nice. and what ever you do DONT PUT IN A BIG AS SNIPER THAT CAN SHOT 2000 M. just make a litle scope on the bolt that can zoom X6 not MORE !!!! it would be so bad for the game if you made a big sniper with X40 zoom so every time you open the door you get shot from other side of the country. i like the game when you open your door and know any thing can happen now not just get shot in the head from a guy thats not even in render destance 

    and btw make a sign you stick in the ground like in mincraft just better to write some thing like FINALE WARNNING I WILL SHOT!!! that could be nice. 
    and keep up the good work love RUST!!!!!

    How about updating so that the game isnt completely broken? Since the update 2 mins ago, I can NOT open my door or any door or use a key or even see my friend running around stuck in the house with me…was perfectly fine yesterday until last night at about 10pm Eastern Time.

  44.  
      Appollyon

    PlzListenToMe Just like in real life everyone runs around naked with rocks and if you hit a tree you get 500 planks of wood that you just put in a backpack and carry around? News flash genius, this isn’t real life.

  45.

    PlzListenToMe PVE can be fun, I had 250 hours logged under PVE, they should add it.

  46.  
      PlzListenToMe

    Thats not realistic…. should u just make an advanced code operated door with just some wood..?? No! Keys are realistic and cool

  47.  
      PlzListenToMe

    All that crap out of the key locks…. lol i think u got a problem… they ate trying to make the game MOST realistic as POSSIBLE, and its one of the most realistical games ever made, so stop crying…. go and cry to Counter Strike Source… there u just keep spawning everytime u die….. lol…. noob

  48.  
      PlzListenToMe

    Ure waste of time! The game is made to be realistic… and in real life u CAN build in another ones house….

  49.  
      PlzListenToMe

    The game is made to be multiplayer…. stoopid! And its not fun with pve…. thats just boring… and again, stoopid!

    Hey, what about adding boats into Rust. There is quite a lot of water now

  51.  
      MasterReD

    w00tz0r  I agree. “Realism” is a shit excuse for having the locks instead of the code system. I spawned into a game yesterday and woke up naked in the snow, and didn’t have any frostbite on my dick…not too real there. And whats the “story” to rust? I’m a grown man who just wakes up naked with a rock. The civilised world has died around me. How? A-Bomb? Virus? At least in the original rust there was zombies which explained what had happened to the world. In the new rust, how did I get there. How come I’ve gone my whole life with no clothes, home or friends/family. Doesn’t seem too real. So bring back the code system and fuck the keys/locks and don’t give me that “aww we’re trying to have more realism” crap, because the fact that doors have locks which use keys is the only real part of rust.

    Besides that keep going facepunch :)

    So, I spend about 4 hours building a fortress. While I was offline, someone broke in and rather than spend time chopping their way to me, they just decided to build a wall to block me in my hiding space. While I was hacking my way out of my tomb, the intruder had hacked a small hole in the wall where I was chopping and managed to loot me while I was still alive. Why are other players allowed to build in my home? I played legacy for a while and quit because it sucked. I thought this might be better but I was wrong. This game is a waste of time.

    Hi Rust! I am trying to play it on my Mac and for some reason when I go to open the game, it blinks for a moment and then closes. Not sure whats going on…

  55.  
      w00tz0r

    love the progress the past few weeks. the game is finally becoming better than legacy ( almost there )
    But please remove the key system with the old code system, it worked so much better! Realism is fun but it’s still a game and id rather have more fun playing the game than thinking about how realistic it all is..

    HonestRon That not up to the devs so much as it is the individual server owners, if you want a pve server so bad and there isn’t one, go buy/host one yourself, problem solved.

      HonestRon

    How about adding PVE severs for those of us who want to play without having to shoot everyone we meet.
    password locks for doors would be useful, you could keep the keys for doors just add a padlock make able item, ei you make a door and then you make a padlock for it and add it to the door.
