Locks, Trees and Networking

Performance

We’ve spent a lot of time looking at performance this week. So here’s what has the biggest impact on performance right now.

  1. Water Reflections
  2. SpeedTree Rendering
  3. PVT Rendering
  4. Terrain Rendering
  5. Animations
  6. Everything else
  7. Grass Rendering

Trust us when we say grass isn’t the reason your framerate is low. So what are we going to do about the other stuff?

Water reflections and PVT are now disabled by default. We need to look into water reflections more closely and possibly submit a bug report to Unity. PVT is Diogo’s realm – and he’s just back off holiday so I’m sure he’ll be looking into it soon.

Tree rendering. We’re submitting a bug with Unity. They think it’s a bug to do with billboard rendering – so hopefully we’ll get some big improvements here. We currently have about 10,000 trees. Legacy had 136,000 trees. There’s more work to be done here and we’re all over it.

The performance of everything else is pretty much meaningless until we get the others sorted.

Key Lock Changes

I re-wrote a huge portion of the lock and door code this week. This has resulted in a couple of nice changes for the key system.

Keys are now coded. Like in real life there’s now a finite amount of unique keys that can exist in the world. A key your create might end up also being able to open a lock somewhere else. This is random and there’s no way to choose these codes.. yet.

If you have the key in your inventory and try to open a locked door, it will open. No need to unlock, open, close, lock. The lock remains locked – so no-one without the key can interact with the door at any point during this process.

This has all fixed that problem people were having with doors/locks not working with their keys after loading a save too.

Terrain Changes

Some fairly major terrain generation changes were added this week. It’s all part of a bigger plan to unsuck the environment. Beaches are now guaranteed to be flat, overall elevation values are less extreme, forests have a border area that can have separate vegetation from the forest core and we’re no longer spamming giant rocks all over the place.

Keep in mind that nothing you see is final and a lot of the current assets are placeholders. We’re also aware that people like to hide between the massive rocks in legacy and plan to offer various ways to hide on the new maps as well.

Lighthouse Progress

Dan has been making progress with the lighthouse. It’s in game now!

Wall Glitching

A few people have been taking advantage of being able to build walls which will push you through other walls into people’s bases. That was pretty inevitable.

So we’ve added a mechanism so stuff doesn’t turn solid when you’re inside it. It’ll wait until you exit it – then it will become solid. So there’s less chance of it catapulting you through a wall.

Obviously this isn’t a silver bullet to wall glitching, but it’s a nice way to fix the majority of these exploits and a bunch of other weirdness. We’ll address these exploits more as we go along.

Code Lock Added

We know you all missed the code lock from legacy, so it’s back. This lock is electric so you need to find a battery to create it.

The lock works pretty much like the one in legacy. Add it to a door, set the code, lock it. As long as you’ve entered the code once you’ll be able to open the door without unlocking or re-entering the code. When unlocked anyone can change the code – so be careful!

The minecraft graphics are placeholder. You hate the graphics and the sounds, register your disgust below.

Coherent UI Updates

The guys at Coherent sent some updated binaries. It should now run up to 30% faster, it might not crash on OSX as much, and it has better logging so we can diagnose more problems in the future.

Global Trees

The trees are now networked globally. This means that they’re not created in a relatively small area around you, they’re spawned everywhere by default. So you’re going to see Petur’s lovely speedtrees all the way to the horizon.

This might be detrimental to your framerate, but in our tests we didn’t see a massive framerate drop. If you are suffering try playing with the F2 options to see if you can get some improvements.

We’re still in the process of determining suitable forest sizes and densities to find a nice balance between performance and visuals. Overall forests got a lot bigger and a bit less dense compared to last week. However, there are that many trees all over the map that I don’t think you’ll even notice.

Networking Tweaks

Previously you would join a server, it’d send you all the entity information (snapshots), then you’d click “respawn”, and it’d send you it all again. This got annoying quick.

Now when you join a server it will send you all the global entities (trees, system info etc), then if you’re dead it’ll give you the option to respawn – at which point you’ll receive all the entities that are in your new position’s radius. Since this doesn’t include trees anymore it’s a lot fewer entities than you’d imagine – so this is a lot faster than before.

The networking system now includes compression too, on packets that are bigger than a certain size. This helps a lot with snapshots. In fact larger snapshots are routinely half the size that they were.

Some unused variables were moved from the base entity. This means that each entity costs about 20 bytes less to network.

Audio Fixes

Audio is working again. We had a bug where compressed sounds wouldn’t play when we played on Steam. Turned out this was a bug on the build server – it was missing the VC2010 runtime. Now we’re all good.

I’ve done some tweaking of sound volumes based on feedback from the community. You should no longer be able to hear animal footsteps from 2 miles away. This is going to be something else we constantly tweak over time so please do give us feedback on specific sounds.

Eating Animations

Goosey made a couple of generic eating animations.

Lerp Fixes

I’ve improved our position system. Other players should no longer appear about 8 feet behind where they actually are. This has been a much reported problem – and hopefully this should now be fixed.

I also removed client.lerptime – which was being used as a cheat.

Concepts

Meg concepted some abandoned machinery

Howie concepted a monorail

Howie concepted some pipes

Paul concepted a tier 1 SMG

Summary

I really feel positive about the changes I’ve made in the codebase this week. The lock changes were a lot more significant than they appear. A lot of code underneath has been un-fucked. It’s a lot simpler for other programmers to add entities like this now.

Next week – hopefully gameplay fixes, performance fixes, some big building changes and hopefully unfuck the weapons in the same way that the locks have been unfucked. We also need to start looking for more 3D Artists and Programmers.. So if you think you can add to Rust – even if you’ve applied before – please do so over here – and please put [RUST] in your application.

    Read up on Ancient Egypt, it’s enlightening. This is just a simple website on a few facts on Egypt and pyramids. Enjoy.
    Also If you want more info look up documentaries on building the pyramids. It’s breathtaking.

    Except that this game, seemingly, takes place in a distant future. So it’s possible that humanity has maintained its knowledge after the destruction of civilization. One of the early theories I enjoyed was that humans were frozen I’m time capsules and are just now thawing out to a post apocalyptic world. Those people would have the same knowledge.
    In any case, bringing down a tree with a rock is not impossible. Nor is it too terribly hard. It’s just time consuming.

      Leignheart

    TravisDangler If you tend to lean towards the theory of evolution then you would know that in the theory of evolution that the origin of man kind didn’t start with them making wooden houses and mining sulphur and iron. They lived in caves, foraged nuts and other edible plants, and so on and so forth, and were unable to cut down trees or mine until they had the tools to do so. But that is if you side with evolution which is what it seems you do.

  7.  
      Leignheart

    Actually no one knows how they built the pyramids exactly. All there are is theories on how, even including kites. Also they definitely were not primitive or use rocks they found lying on the ground. So i dont know exactly what your point about the Egyptians was? As it has no relation to chopping down trees with a big rock found on the ground. It took extreme precision and masterwork to build the pyramids. And if you suggest the egyptians built all their temples and monuments with rocks they found on the ground, then I suggest pulling out the history book.
    P.s I assumed you were speaking of the egyptians as thier pyramids are the most famous.

    Very nice that you have fixing the building system guys !
    i am very happy to hear there is no more hammering :D

    i
    am very happy you always listen to the community, however there are to
    super crucial things that still need fixing for rust to become awesome
    again :)

    1: Resource scarcity

    the
    small trees still give like 90 wood if you hit it with a stone hatchet,
    this is not good, this leads to less fighting. and since this is rust
    (which is not the real world) we want to promote fighting so please
    reduce the wood gain from small tree’s to 5 and make resources more
    scarce overall :)

    2: Level 5 & 6 walls:
    level
    5 & 6 walls should only be destroyable by explosives, or else we
    are all just gonna be standing around bashing walls again which is no
    fun, we want to force people out in the field to farm for resources that
    later can be used for quick acess.
    and if u think about its not that realistic that a hand weapon could tear down a metal wall
    destruction
    rate should be adjusted ( im thinking the time it took you to tear down
    a wood door in legacy would be appropriate for lvl 2 walls with the
    highest lvl hand weapon)

    its also a good fun/scare to run
    around with your explosives because if you lose it you could lose a wall
    in your home and just the overall pain in the ass of farming for it and
    the blueprint alike (which must be super hard to obtain ofc, and also
    the resources to craft it) 
    in legacy the airdrop was the only way obtain the explosives, this was a very fun game mechanic to force ppl to just go all in

    THESE
    TWO LAST UPDATES WILL BRING ALL THE LEGACY PPL BACK I PROMISE U, and as
    of right now they are really the majority nearly so please do these to
    last things
    You should be able to be safe in your house but it should be hard to setup and even harder to get into,

    so i think the resume of this is : 

    atm
    its too easy to get anything in rust, make it harder, thats the
    excitement more scarcity, and raiding should be a lot harder and risky
    for the raiders

    Or instead of having to listen to me
    complain every week you could just take everything from legacy and put
    on that map and make it a little less laggy

    EricNims People who text in broken english are just as stupid as what you are doing. You look like an angsty 14 year old to be honest, but your language skills are that of a 10 year old so you can imagine my confusion. That aside, your insults aren’t even well thought out, you’re like a child with tourettes just blurtting out the first random cuss words that happen to come to mind. You literally know nothing about me and yet you grasp at straws and assume all the wrong things, which makes me wonder, maybe these things are true of you? Maybe that’s why you think they will hurt me, perhaps you see yourself in me… You couldn’t be further from the truth. Most likely this will fall on deaf ears, but if it doesn’t, maybe you can look deep within yourself, and come to turns with the fact that you are a giant faggot. I bet you call your mom m’lady.

    If you can show substantial proof of someone being able to chop down a tree with a simple rock they find on the ground then ill believe you. Until then ill have to stick with my own knowledge and education. By all means try to take down a pine tree with a rock. Id like to see the results.

    The devs have stated several times that realism is their goal. It might not be there yet but I think that’s the direction they’ve chosen.
    And you could take a tree down with nothing more than a rock. It’s just gonna take a lot of time. And most metal ores are very brittle. You could definitely at least get sharp price of rock to make a stone hatchet which is usually the first goal in Rust.

    AndrewNevskiy Its a procedurally generated map meaning that every server is going to be entirely different.
    Rust isn’t about high action its about realism. Go play CoD…..
    And as far as I can tell, switching back to a generic pre-made map would have unnoticeable performance change.

    TO DEVELOPERS:

    Dear Developers! PLZ! DO NOT RUIN YOUR GREAT GAME!

    Don’t u think the map is overdone? IT’S SO DAMN HUGE for so little amount of players! Most servers have 30-100 players!! If server has 200+ ppl it has lot of lags and high latency… (( just sort the community servers and you will see max amount of players on servers is ~100.

    The map looks like it’s endless! RUST lost all of its gameplay’ dynamic: because of the huge map u play mostly ALONE! .. 
    I loved old rust because players had to fight for place and resources. That was real sruvival game. Now the game is closer to SIMS or kinde of.. Build a house, live alone.. have 100k of each resource,  meet 1 player for 2 hrs… There is no ACTION! I’m sure u know how action is important for any game!

    I remember those massive gangs battles for “the place under the sun”… A lot of players missing it… 

    And these all could be switched back if you make the map way smaller than it is. Do you remember old rust map (legacy)? Me and my friends think twice bigger map would be enough.. Current map is too big and makes the game process unconcentrated.

    We do hope u will make the map smaller and create a process of finding friends on the map easier.
    Thank you!

    ps: BTW smaller map can solve some performance problems ;)

    But they didn’t make a new game, they are overhauling the old one. The basic concepts and style are the same.
    So the minecraft example is a bad one.
    Compare the games.
    Player models have a similar bald head and penis look.
    Basically the same weapons, but Experimental, as we all got told right from the start, has had it’s guns given an post apocalyptic look as again was always planned. Maybe some balance changes but the weapons are essentially the same.
    Basically the same kit over all as legacy. The changes, and this is what settles most of the arguments, so far are mostly cosmetic.
    Campfires and crafting? Check.
    POI? Both games have them, Just different landmarks is all.

    Both have rocks you can mine and trees you can chop. Just the interface and other visual elements changed.
    Can build and place wooden walls. Just different visually mostly. Both games you can make doors and lock them. The building system is essentially they same just streamlined it some. Can be more detailed in your building now, not so “snap to griddy”
    You can equip armour in both, but now you can actually see it.
    Most people you meet will KoS in both games.
    Zombies? Neither games got them. Zombies in the first game were essentially place holders and as we know also removed from legacy.
    Wolves and Bears? Yup, just upgraded visually again!
    Large Maps? Yes both, but here’s where the real change has come from, the addition of randomly generated map. But the theme is still the same, forests, roads, cliffs, mountains, and now lakes with the potential for a greater variety of landscapes.
    So maps only really visually different too if you think about it.
    I could go on and on about the similarities between both versions of Rust if you look past the graphics and how Experimental is getting to where Legacy was gameplay wise. But essentially Experimental is now pretty muck comparable gameplay wise to Legacy.
    It’s now getting back to being the game I felt I paid for. I mean Legacy was “less than 10% of the completed game” when the switch to the new branch begun, I expected massive changes and they happened.
    Here are what I think are the 2 main legitimate problems with this game.
    1. People not fully understanding Early Access and Alpha and other gaming lingo. e.g “Legacy < 10% Finished Product” 3 Year Min. Dev Cycles, pay to beta test from demo builds to FINAL.
    2. That facepunch changed engines, a common practice in game development. A new better engine came along so they went for it.
    It made Rust look and feel different, like a completely different game, especially as many features were not in it and it’s taken a long time to get any real content. Where almost back to where Legacy was when it got dropped imho. Problem is people buying the game never kept that in mind as a possibility and the “back to square one” effect made it feel like the game went backwards.
    It’s kind of a perception thing I guess. It’s not really a problem but many who sunk hundreds of hours into Legacy feel it is because, you know? Hundreds of Hours in Legacy…..

    Instead of bitching IT’S NOT RUST. Accept Experimental is now Rust and let the devs know constructively what you want added to the game, when you can find exactly where to post that is that they’re reading. :p (better official ‘insta-ban free’ Rust forums with mature moderators please)
    Also do some research and read up on exactly how game development generally works, and what an Alpha or EA really is.
    Or go away and come back when the game is finished.
    I mean you already own it permanently, so it’s not going anywhere in a hurry.

    The door lock system has obviously been one of the main points of whining and complaining…
    Fist people are bitching about how it wasn’t the same as in legacy, and now they are bitching because it isn’t realistic. I have an idea…

    For each door you craft and place down, a grid will open up. In this grid, you will arrange certain wooden patterns, which after done, will craft your key. An almost unlimited number of unique keys will result in doors being hard to pick, and you can change the lock at any time and will not be fucked if you lose your one key, as you can craft another with the same shape, or different shape.

    This sounds a lot more efficient than the current system, and I have to say the current code lock system is a bit unrealistic, but was implemented due to the unlimited bitch you guys got from legacy fanboys.

    Please implement this. Oh god. I just realized how awesome this is.

    Shamic because they all got used to legacy and experimental while similar plays vastly different.
    Also “As long as they keep legacy going and keep on supporting it”
    They are not keeping legacy going as such, it’s there and we can still play it, but it is no longer being supported. So as hacks appear in Legacy nothing will be done about it.
    If when they did the engine swap they made Experimental exactly like Legacy and then started moving it towards how it now, the complaints would be much less.
    People got used to Legacy Rust after playing ot for months and thought that was the game they were buying, then had the rug pulled out from under them by Garry and an almost completely different game with less to do was thrown at them.
    Basically comes down to bad communication between facepunch and the customers, and people not understanding Early Access and that Legacy was never going to be the end game.
    Really the problem is on both sides of the fence.

    just a few things following the recent patch, the giant trees are buggy looks like a bunch of boxes on the top of them with nothing holding them up till you get about 10 meters close to it, i cant see players who are 20-50 meters away from me (isnt just me it happening to as ive spoke to multiple people about it) so most of the time when i hear gunshots and go to investigate i cant find who ever it is because their invisable till i get within the area of them, id also like to report an exploit to a mod or someone who can deal with it as its to do with bases and would rather not post it in the open so people dont just go round doing it all the time all n all good patch keep up the good twerk guys

      Shamic

    So can someone explain why everyone hates experimental atm? I mean they have added a lot of good things to it and it is still in alpha, so its not done yet. And you can still play legacy, even if they do cut if off some hacker will just steal the code and make his own private server, thats what they did with vanilla wow. As long as they keep legacy going and keep on supporting it, there really should be nothing to complain about( apart from the crappy framerate and that my computer could run fine on legacy on low graphics and look great, but when i run it on low on expery it looks crap, and that i have to run it in windowed mode to make it even playable)

      El Griefo

    KieferFalk If you’re disgusted by these comments I hope you never venture deeper into the internet or you will become a sad broken man. 
    But seriously, people paid money for the game they were making (Legacy), not for the game the devs wanted to make. It would be like if Notch had seen all the people who paid for Minecraft during Alpha and Beta and thought, “Wow all these people really like my game, but I’m tired of blocks so I’m gonna take all this money and make a new game.” 
    But hey if they don’t want to listen to their fanbase and pull a bait and switch that’s fine (they did “technically” warn us that it could change), just don’t go back and break the original design when people don’t want to play the new “game.”

    I spent a couple of Minutes reading through the comments on this post and i’m absolutely disgusted by the community right now… Back when there was just legacy I hosted a server for a couple of months and played the game religiously 500+ Hours. I thought legacy was great then and I still do but there were things that needed to be changed and upgraded that obviously were unable to be done in legacy. So this past week I started playing experimental and all i can say is “WOW!” they have improved so much, the graphics are so much better the landscapes alone make the game so much more interesting along with all the detail in every model even the animations are better. sure they took allot of items out and changed the way we build, but of course they are still adding content and this is just the beginning  to an amazing experience. I feel without these changes rust would of died out completely the game needed a face lift to survive and that’s exactly what they gave it. I have nothing against legacy and have quite a bit of nostalgia for it, but you really have to ask yourself if bashing this new and improved version of rust is really going to benefit the game at all, why not submit ideas or suggestions as to were you want this game to go and help shape it.The developers have taken so many ideas from the community already and implemented them. Let them know what you want!

    jf3000 The “Legacy” version is the version of the game that 99% of people bought. Legacy is the version of the game that most, if not all, people bought to play the game “Rust”. I didn’t buy the game to watch that version fall into a state of disrepair because Garry Newman, in a stroke of genius, decided that he wanted to remake the game, and scrap what made the game good. 

    Enjoy the Legacy version as is? I don’t know if you even play the game, or just follow these devblogs just to do something during the day, but Legacy Rust is filled with hackers. People who intentionally cracked the game to use things like aimbot or wallhacks. That is a serious problem dude. A huge problem. If this was any other type of company, that shit would have been fixed immediately. Point is, Newman doesn’t care about the version that made this game what it was supposed to be, but instead, took his money, and is trying to do a bait and switch with another post idea he has.

    To add insult to injury, Experimental Rust is no longer Experimental. I don’t know if you looked at the devblog when that one came out either, but “Experimental Rust” is baseline Rust now.

    The game looks much worse and go much slower than before… plus many of the textures are wrongly. Good job Facepunch!

    I must say, I do not care care for the bonsai-influence tree instances in the slightest. Their proportions are incredibly unnatural, especially when the rest of the assets do not comply with that misguided design in the slightest. Either the conditions are harsh enough to influence essentially all plant life or they are not. Large trees would not suddenly portray the stresses of the environment alone. The rest of the trees look vastly superior.

    The tops of the trunks in particular do not look anything like bonsai or natural tree growth.

    Before I hear whining, let it be known that I have a good deal of experience with Speedtree (and have a license for commercial production/re-sale).

    I could create a better asset in under 30 min. with all the needed maps, including normal and spec for bark and leaves. No, I’m not offering my services or anything like that, just voicing my informed opinion about a rather poor attempt at organic modeling.

     This specific asset needs to go.

    Latest update with Experimental works nicely, gotta laugh at the people complaining about Legacy, seriously, I have just red about 50 posts and some of the language is just disgusting, I am surprised you’ve not been banned from here. Did you completely misread the title that says this game is an ALPHA meaning that every time you load the game there is a very good chance the game will break, crash , die etc. Its not a finished game, yet people still complain and also the terms and conditions you agreed to when you first downloaded the game, if it breaks, have some concrete.

    Legacy was and will always be a good ground level game. Yes we know this, but times change and people move on to bigger and better things. If you dont like change then why do you have it set to update your client or servers, leave them with no updates and enjoy Legacy as it is, simple solution.

    Experimental meaning an experiment is all it is, yet people still complain.

    You’ve completely baffled this Aussie.

    Current Bugs: (That I’ve noticed)

    Experimental;
    -Walk through big trees
    -Respawn in foundation
    -Code locks stick and won’ t open with door. (Must crouch to get around them)
    -When having a ramp on a foundation that’s on a slope you can walk through it when crouched
    -Hot keys don’t work for food or medkits
    -Ownership of homes go away after server wipe. which also affects code locks
    -Caves have a mesh ground that doesn’t have a barrier
    -Strange textures appear (rarely) when in the distances. such as dark spots in trees
    -When moving items from inv to box sometimes the item doesn’t show up in box
    -(Modded servers) teleporting to other players when going to friend
    -Animals don’t attack you sometimes
    -When exiting the inventory the screen gets blurred and mouse is visible but player can’t look around
    -Combat issues. (Not sure how to explain this one) its just not the best
    -Airdrops parachutes stay even after crate is gone
    *By the way i run a Asus Geforce GTX790 with qualities maxed out and high frames but  sometimes when going near forests the frames drop very noticeably.

    Suggestions;

    -Of course add more stuff :D
    -Fur armor/cloths
    -Animal disguise (but obviously noticeable if paying attention)
    -Add weather (rain, fog, snow, wind, etc..)
    -Traps, traps traps!
    -Refillable canteen or flask
    -More flexible building machanics (window frames, material of homes to match environment, etc)
    -Woman characters
    -Player Customization (When joining a new server) Height, weight, color, etc..
    -Horses you can ride
    -Weight limit on player (adds a realistic feel to the game)
    -A favorites tab for the main menu like legacy has
    -Old docks for the water 
    -Spear fishing and even regular fishing
    -Floating foundations for water (limit to only one story tall bases) so it’s not too abusive 
    -Sleds, such as a trash can lid or a big piece of metal to slide down mountains without sudden death
    -Gillie suits (have a time limit) or weaken players health
    -Compass
    -Paper that players can draw on for mapping purposes
    -Clan/Team Flags (idea from Call of Duty Black ops) custom make team flags for bases
    -Mud camo (for just starting off players to help hide
    -Rock throwing and Sling Shots 
    -Base camo: Gather leafs, dirt, snow, sandy mud? for extra concealment of bases
    -Furniture: Tables, log benches, etc..
    -Stove. For fast cooking
    -Peep holes for doors
    -Windmills 
    -Rubble for when base gets broken in to it leaves a pile of broken wood and dirt on the ground
    -FOV (Field of view) changer in F2 settings

    Let me know if this helped at all:)

    Please no map. Once you guys get all the land marks and rad towns you will easily be able to find your way around. It adds a fun sand scary element to the game to not know where you are at first. You have to be carefull to not wonder to far from home when you first start and explore and learn your surroundings.

    When the next update will be in favor of raiders ? you put code lock but it’s not survival at all. When you had keys on you, you have to be carefull when you see someone, now you can farm easily whith no stress. You up the wall level 6 (10 minutes to get 1 metal fragment) but now it’s faster to build it. It’s not anymore a survival game, it’s just a craft game. Or add explosive in this game. The experimental version is for farmer, not for raiders and that’s suck

  106.  
      Deadmeet

    spiritchill CharlesDailey1 jomay In real life, you cannot disconnect, so you can protect your house. I agree that each house should be raidable, but actually, if you are not connected 15h per day, 7 day per week, you are sure to be raided.

    I agree that the level system for walls is great, but, when the wall reach a certain level (maybe add 1 step after the metal level) is should be destroyable when things hard more difficult to aquire than a hatched and a some times (or friends).

  107.  
      Deadmeet

    I pretty like all the updates you make in the new version and I encourage raging people to be more objective and step back.

    But I agree with one thing. It’s actually too easy to raid somebody, the explosive system of the old version was better for that.

    Being able to break any door with just a hatchet make that you can come on a server with some of your friends, all new, take some wood and stone (not hard), craft some hatchet and a build plan, and raid the first inoccuped big house during the night when nobody is connected.

    So when you work and can play only few hours a day, you connect, you craft and try to make the biggest house you can with the time and the connected friends you have, disconnect and have a life, reconnect, and restart from the begining cause you were raid during your sleep. It’s a bit brutal, even for rust.

    eldervamp14 jf3000 JeremyGarner I think I found a solution. Changing the windows registry worked for me. There is a file in youtube and steam forum (solution originally from facepunch.com forum) that you can double click to modify the windows registry but I did it manually (changing windows registry can be dangerous -damage to the registry can stop a PC from functioning- so be careful with that). 
    What I did (Windows 7) was close Steam, go to Start, type regedit and click enter. Open the folders HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/EasyAntiCheat. There were to me two keys already there, each one with Name, Type and Data. First one was (Default) and second one was called GamesInstalled. Then I right click the white space there and create a New > DWORD. Change Name to ServiceVersion. Double click to change the Data (value), selecting Decimal (is Hexadecimal by default) and put 4 in value. Only adding this fixed the issue and I could play from Steam library. Not sure if EasyAntiCheat is running with the game though… How can I be sure of that? Should a “Install EasyAntiCheat” window should pop up every time I try to play Rust?

I think it would have been cool if you guys maked that players can choose between old and new version.

    JeremyGarner I couldn’t join the first servers I tried (I got a message saying I died and then back to the game menu -I might have been kicked out then -) but then I joined another server and managed to play for about an hour. I did execute the EasyAntiCheat (selecting Rust as target) before launching Rust hoping that EasyAntiCheat was running, that’s why I thought it worked.

  194.

    Hi Guys,
    Just some feedback so far:

    New electric lock is great – however it did get stuck mid-air and stopped me from being able to get into my base. Maybe make it so it isn’t a collision object in case this happens. After I unlocked it, the problem was fixed however.

    Audio – All sounds that players make (footsteps/hacking/slashing) are all still very audible for far away distances. Please change this as I’m constantly wigging out that someone is right beside me when they aren’t. Also the audio file for the Salvaged Axe is REALLY harsh to listen to over and over again. Please make this a bit softer/smoother. 

    Loving the updates, I can’t wait until the gun animations are finished! It is getting closer and closer to an almost fully playable game! :D

    JeremyGarner I found out a way to play the game. Instead of running the game from Steam Library I run Rust Client from the installation folder (inside SteamApps/common). If that doesn’t work for you try to execute EasyAntiCheat first (the folder is inside Rust folder). I did it and I could play but the game was running very badly for me (very low fps and even the game menu -before joining a server- was running very slowly with several seconds delay after every click, almost unplayable). 

    After that I tried the changing from normal to beta method but not sure how that works cause apparently there was a huge update (more than 1Gb) and I wasn’t sure if that was normal or I did something wrong. My Rust folder ended up all messed up and I decided to uninstall the game. I will reinstall the game soon and see if I can play without all these issues. Thanks for the suggestions and comments.

    JohnnyBridges So completely wrong and closed minded, yes especially in the games previous state no grass is a huge tactical advantage. I doubt you’ll have an easy time looting a body when grass, is on. Maybe the devs ideal tall grass wont be implemented soon, but giving the ability to turn off the grass would inhibit everyone to do so, and the game just plays and looks so much better with it.

    Irhcsa Welcome to my world.  I too am stuck in a level 6 house without a means to a). open door, b). remove door… sigh.. should’ve put in two doors, one using key until I was certain codelocks worked correctly.  Couldn’t agree more on water reflections, they are a nice to have but not critical to gameplay.

    Is that an apple or a green pepper?  Man, I feel like this game -was- epic, turned into a pile of crap, and is slowly showing promise of being epic once again… Still a long way to go… Nowhere near as playable as the original was yet.  First time I tried the ‘new’ version it was extremely disappointing, but I loaded it up after the last update and while it still wasn’t playable for me it wasn’t *as* disappointing.  

    For the record… This isn’t meant to be a bashing, for the first time since I purchased this game quite a while ago, and for the first time in 800+ hours of playing this, I actually have a bit of faith in Facepunch…  Keep on truckin’ guys :D

    I think I see what is happening with the locks. In the logs it is saying “Invalid Position: lock.code(Clone) (CodeLock) (0.0, 0.0, 0.0) (destroying)”. I wonder if this is happening on player join. The lock is attached to the door and then you can’t unlock to open. So maybe it’s just an issue with the empty door lock position which seems like it could be easy to fix…

  223.  
      DJREX

    EricNims How can they fix something they didn’t know was broken? That’s the whole point of ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT! They add something new, something they most likely already tried to work out most of the kinks with, and then the players further break it so that it may be made known and then remedied. I hadn’t responded to your previous comment you left me as it was laughable at best, but I digress, I find it hard to believe you’re a “programmer”  as you claim to be, you would think this would all be rather easy to wrap your head around if that was the case…

  224.

    ScarfaceCapone Irhcsa seems like if you were going to add the keypads you would allow for them to work the next day. So they added them and they are unusable. Why add something if you won’t finish it to even work after logout? Makes no sense.

    Did you buy it in steam? Do you lunch it from steam? If not, you must use steam, just by pressing the play boton in steam instead of opening the game from the shortcut fixed the issue for me.

    I realize im on a pretty old system, but I dont accept that grass is a framerate loss. While it does lose 5-10 frames, when you are on a lower end computer 5-10 frames is quite a bit. The fact that I run smoothly in the snow and desert and slow to a slideshow when i hit grass PROVES it DOES affect framerate loss. Why on earth you still persist to keep the grass turned on for everyone is a mystery to me. It provides no tactical advantage, I can crouch in the grass and am still pretty visible. For now, you are only leaving it on just to assert your overbearing development on others. This isn’t Apple, give us choices in how we play the game instead of your spoon fed bull. We could turn it off in Legacy and it really didn’t give anyone an advantage, so change your attitudes and let us turn this stupid FPS hogging shit off.

  258.  
      Irhcsa

    Ok reasons like this are why people don’t give you guys more money.  

    2 major issues with your game:

    First your easy anti cheat program stops certain computers from even playing the game.

    Second, My wife and I built a lvl 6 fortress for 8 hours straight. We log in this morning and the door locks are missing and we can’t interact with our doors. Fix your freaking bugs before coming out with new shit. You are so focused on water reflections that your game is dying. No one gives a flying fuck about water reflections.

    There is some great changes this week good job! I personally feel like you should really get ALOT more entities into the game, like trees and things like the monorail, pipes etc because it really adds to the game. I am aware that you said those things will  be added over time but I feel they should be a high priority coming from one who plays the game, it would definitely get all the old rust lovers back into the game. It just feels to sparse at the moment. Regardless keep up the good work guys:D thankyou.

    Hey there, there is a bug on the lock system (code lock excelly)
    i have seen in the comments about the one that you have to duck for it to get trough it, but thats not the biggest problem.

    The biggest problem with the code locksystem is as soon as the server restarts, the lock is gone and you cannot open the door anymore. 
    So, if you go to bed at night, and wake up next morning and the server has been restarted, you are trapped inside your house. 
    and ye, hatchet your way trough all the level 6 walls/doors is not really an option.

    Hello Garry first of all i would like to thank you for making this game it’s so fucking epic. And it’s great you care about our game not like that dayz shit where they got the money and just left the game all messed up. I can’t wait for Friday’s now lol. Don’t listen to people that shit too much i guess they don’t see the big Alpha letters in the corner. My only wish is that you spend a little time polishing the Legacy version because it’s very fun to play. I like the experimental version too i just hope you will make some different maps for it in the future. it would also be great if you added some random loots like in legacy i was playing for four hours and didn’t find anything like that here. And maybe in a distant future you could bring some kind of customization to your character except the clothes, but I know it’s a long way down there road if ever hahahha. Well that’s it for me again thank you for making this epic game and please don’t stop caring about it, after all it is your child. Good luck in your future programming.

    Over the entire development of this second attempt at Rust I have wondered what the thought process of adding a third person camera into the game was. It completely destroys the immersion, and gives players an unrealistic ability to jump out of their bodies and look around corners, through windows, over boulders etc. By far my favorite excuse for its implementation is so you can “view your characters armor/clothing”, which is completely absurd considering the game has 3D model in the inventory screen that you can gawk at. If people are really that vain and you really have to see yourself find a body of water and turn reflection on… Then please proceed to jump head first into the shallow water.  In all honesty i think you have pulled more ideas and game mechanics from other games then from your own one of a kind survival game, the one that over a million people bought… played… and loved.

    there’s a bug for the lock code, when we apply the lock code, for the first time, yeah, it will be lock the door, but after we open the lock and lock it again, it’s not locking the door, we must change the code lock to lock it again.

    I agree with what a lot of people are saying about the raidability of houses. being able to break down level 5 and 6 walls with a rock is annoying for anyone trying to build a house.

    Perhaps:

    Level 1 – walls can be broken by everything

    Level 2 – Stone hatchets and above

    Level 3 – hatchets and above

    Level 4 – salvaged weapons and above

    Level 5 – basic explosives (grenades)

    Level 6 – C4 Only

    I also think that the amount of resources required to tier up needs to be adjusted. i can build a tier 6 tiny house in about 15 – 20 minutes of gameplay. I think the time is ok because it encourages group building or slowly upgrading your home but i think considering how much metal fragments you can harvest from one metal ore rock the cost of these late tiers needs to go up. perhaps 100 – 1000 fragments for tier 5 and 6. as it means not everyone can do it and you’d have to harvest more resources thus creating more conflict for the resources.

    Otherwise love this game, loved legacy. think it will be another couple of months before new rust is really playable. but it’s good to see the progress each week. they just need to balance it right. Legacy had a lot of the balance elements like availability of resources and cost of building absolutely perfect. many mechanics should just be updated and not rewritten

    Cheers!

    Please don’t stray too far away from the legacy version. from the concept art and everything it looks like this game is heading to a futuristic type survival game. please don’t do this i bought rust because of the legacy version and it looks like it’s changing completely into a whole new game. :(

    PONTOON BRIDGES – that’s what I would like to see so I could build shortcuts across water.  Would require Metal Frags, Cloth and Wood and could only be placed on water (trigger ‘wet’).

      Smyrr

    monorail rocks. i thought the lighthouse would have been much bigger like 2x height and 3x wide. i think the antenna was ok but you should make it larger. code might make us leave from house more but anyway we will get raided. 

    eating effects are cool. 

    maybe getting thirsty, making a bucket and getting water from a river etc and drinking , also hunger effect would be great

    it might be early for loot boxes. but please consider my AUTOMATED TURRETS NEAR LOOT SITES idea. 

    By the way, do not apply the steam market thing. i smell some profit for gabe since he will get %10 commission for each sale. PLEASE JUST DONT!. older was better. in legacy i trust. just make them harder to get. and im sure majority agrees with me.

    and before i forget, i follow every update every week. read every little detail but i dont know a thing about software programming. but i can say you are doing great. keep up the good work.

Seeing as food resources are scarce now, and I like it that way, raiders will have to stock up, plan and consider their targets wisely.

    Amazing game, and the updates are awesome to. Would very much like to see some more wildlife maybe some NPC towns with guards walls etc? Make it interesting if you added blue prints back especially if you have different kinds starting from a tribal town with primitive tech and going up to a more modern settlement with guards sporting assault rifles and the like, once taken by players they would have access to food, water, shelter etc. Maybe add electrical generators, or powered areas where you have access to destroyable/repairable industrial equipment to maybe mass produce certain items? Not guns but ammo and certain wood items and such. Both ideas would give players places for conflict, defense, strategy etc. Definitely be awesome to have ai controlled hunters to or giant predators that only appear on nice in a while and require team work to bring down (traps would make this more enticing to) my mind is running with what all you could do but your already doing so amazing ! Thank you for many hours of entertainment.

  331.  
      spiritchill

    I suggest a fix to the falling. I liked legacy penalizing a fall. It was a nuisance falling and losing all loot but that was the risk of being foolish. If we are to be penalized like in legacy on our sojourns out of base, at least guarantee spawn us near our mistakes like falls, bleeding, starvation. That way we have a chance to recover (provided we have paid attention to the landscape detail)

  332.  
      tbon45

    wouldnt it be cool if:

    it kept track of many people youve killed, which, in return would change the animations of eating/how you look ect changed in response to your good or evil deads.  I can imagine the evil player looking like a savage and tearing his meat apart and being dirty while the “good player” eats more politely and looks like he might of had a bath or washed his clothes every once in awhile.  idk i think that would be cool.  im pretty high right now tho…….

      scecjs

    clientjb7 jomay You seem to be missing the point that raiding is what caused the server to wipe.  With anyone being able to raid any house at any time, this will make raiding more common.  That seems to me like it will make server populations less stable, not more stable.

    I think the code door locks should (if a beeping sound or other sound still plays when the door opens in the future) be programmable so that you can change the pitch of a beep (if you wanted, no beep is an option as well). This would allow someone to have different beeps on the exterior walls of the house than the inside of it, making it easier to tell which doors have been opened even if you cannot see them. There would be limits, otherwise some players would abuse extremely high pitched sounds.

    Alright not a bad update actually!
    Code locks look amazing, and was the thing missing from legacy, since the key system sucks actually :/

    Scruzo Well, obviously they’re trying to finish the game. But if other art assets are ready to be implemented, and it’s not impacting their development time, then why shouldn’t they be put in? Just because these particular features don’t appeal to you?

    It’s not like Garry rolled into the office and was like “okay guys, fuck that improving gameplay shit. Everybody drop what you’re doing and let’s knuckle down on these gestures.” There are separate teams who focus solely on this stuff, and when they have something sitting there ready to go, and the time to push out the new patch comes around, then obviously these things are going to go in too.

    Sigh.

    I honestly don’t know why someone makes this exact same complaint every week. As if this game is making 0 progress.

    What is it they say?
    The proof is in the pudding.

    RealmDweller yeah the old pillar system in legacy was awesome, but in this version where there is free roaming with the building blocks i dont really see how a pillar would prevent it :-/ maybe just like doors have a zone around them like the size of their opening widht that blocks anything from being built in that area :) then i think the pillars could work also the pillars in legacy where nice when building large open rooms which you cant in this version which makes no sense

  357.  
      UNSTEALTHYN1NJA

    jomay I am with you on this one, but then you have to look at the trolls that place walls infront of every door they see. It already takes close to half an hour to bust through a metal wall that someone has put infront of your door, and if somebody had a full lv6 house, and some other guy chucked up a lv6 wall outside of his door, he would be stuck in with no way out.

    In legacy you were able to protect your doors with foundations and pillars, in the new rust there is no effective way to prevent it from happening, as any means you build to stop it can still be broken through anyway.

    I like the ideas with the walls, but honestly there needs to be some way to prevent this from happening.

      RealmDweller

    Main concern to me is that the build time is still far more excessive than it should be… multiple building levels are fine, but give us a way to make high quality materials on the side, for faster application. A second level furnace for baking/casting bricks and sheet metal.
    something like:
    lvl 1 wood = raw resource
    lvl2 wood = hand-crafted planks (quickly applied once prepared)
    lvl1 stone = raw resource
    lvl 2 stone = furnace-baked bricks (quickly applied once prepared in basic furnace)
    lvl 1 metal = metal frags
    lvl2 metal = smelted sheet metal (quickly applied once prepared advanced furnace)
    I want rust, not a time-out simulater where i’m expected to do nothing but stare at walls for hours on end.

    rust without raid isnt rust.
    Its ok the idea of the raid, but need to change something because now if you join a server, with ur rock and you have time, u can raid EVERY BASE.
    This is a waste of time for who spent time to build a lvl 6 base. In legacy when c4 start to float the server wipe, this is true, just change the quantity of explosive for make 1c4 and everything change. 50explosive for 1 c4 and you cant raid at home with 30-40 c4, not easy as was in legacy.
    Raids are very funny, for everyone (who attack and who defends) but they must be a end game solution, Base lvl 6 must be (till c4 is out), unraidable. Base lvl 1/2 -> easy to ride. Base lvl 3/4 easy to raid but need time. Base lvl 5 hard to raid, much time for raid. Lvl 6 base unraidable.

    Jasonthehuman CharlesDailey1  I just went through 5 dev blogs to make sure I wasn’t recalling wrong.  None of the items in any of them have been implemented.

  379.  
      clientjb7

    jomay  No house should be unraidable. If you do this, you will have tons of houses that are placed in the world and will always be there unmanned.  Legacy had decay, which was a nice mechanic, but C4 was hard to learn, easy to make and once C4 started floating around, houses were getting kicked in way too often and then the inevitable wipe occured.  I see new rust sway towards a better medium and with work, should be really nice.  In real life, if someone spent an hour hacking away at my house and no one interrupted them, then they would probably hack a hole into a wall and get through.  More realistic scenarios is that an hours worth of effort would tire someone out, dehydrate them, and require them to be well fed to exert this effort… but none the less, no house is unraidable given enough time and effort.

  380.  

    CharlesDailey1 You obviously haven’t payed attention nearly everything in the game currently was a “doodle”. All of the scavenged tools were doodles that were coded into the game. The guns, the houses, there are very FEW things doodled that haven’t been implemented.

    Walls
    being destroyable with hand weapons, the level system is okay but it
    should be like when you reach max level with a wall only explosives
    should be able to destroy it :) good game mechanic i swear ! and maybe
    make a seperate wall level system for floors and foundations its a pain
    to upgrade it all :( not the fun pain

    also resource
    scarcity, u know make ppl fight over the resources thats the fun part :)
    this was also a core awesome game mechanic of the old legacy version
    please bring it back

    Radiated animals or atleast something u can farm that has a very low drop rate of some crucial items

    enough rambling from me
    YOU DO AN AWESOME JOB THANK U SO MUCH FOR LISTENING GAME IS COMING ALONG REALLY NICELY! :D

  384.  
      CharlesDailey1

    jomay You’re right.  There is no security, really.  In Legacy, players designed houses around the aspect of being C4’d.  Players had to make economical decisions.  Now that every room is raidable, there is no urgency to make houses secure.  There is no scarcity – everything is up for grabs – and those with the most amount of time to dedicate to the game can raid your house while you’re doing something else.

  385.  
      jomay

    Im an older player of Rust, i usually a bandits but i must admit that now raid at home its really easy, and every house is raidable, also with a rock, if u have tons of time. This is no good imho.
    I’d like to ask to the devs if they can change this, for example base lvl 6 can be unraidable for now (in the future only with c4), or for base lvl 5/6 make them more more more time for destroy a wall.
    Because at the moment build a base is a waste of time, and raid a base is pretty easy for everyone.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ADDING CODE LOCK!!!! but seriously make it autolocked just like in legacy only if u had the code u can interact, and it was  also a fun mechanic that u could hold the door with the menu very good game mechanic :) i am very happy that u responded to the feedback of the community and brought these code doors back :D 
    so i just want to share with you what i think needs fixing
    Walls being destroyable with hand weapons, the level system is okay but it should be like when you reach max level with a wall only explosives should be able to destroy it :) good game mechanic i swear ! and maybe make a seperate wall level system for floors and foundations its a pain to upgrade it all :( not the fun pain

    also resource scarcity, u know make ppl fight over the resources thats the fun part :) this was also a core awesome game mechanic of the old legacy version please bring it back

    Radiated animals or atleast something u can farm that has a very low drop rate of some crucial items

    when this is done i would say rust isent alpha it is ready ! good fun legacy mechanics

    enough rambling from me

    YOU DO AN AWESOME JOB THANK U SO MUCH FOR LISTENING GAME IS COMING ALONG REALLY NICELY! :D

    Great update this week guys!  I was a huge fan of the grass effects in Legacy and when I ran a server had it forced on.  It was in the server welcome message so I know some players had frame rate issues and would leave.  I also felt like you had a visual advantage by turning it off so I wanted to detour that for those who did not have performance issues.  In any case I know this may be down the road but have you seen what Nvidia has been working on, I know you guys are also programmers in your own right but this would look good in Rust, Turf Effects:

    i dont like the idea that a person can change the code of the lock while it is unlocked… how about making it so they would have to input the original code in order to change the code? that way no one could quickly change it when you unlock it to go out of your house and either a. lock you in or b. lock you out after quickly destroying your sleeping bag

    I really thing that you should add mining. Not minecraft style, but a way to kind of build underground and explore underground.

  403.  
      parad0x7

    nobody’s gonna read but … some of these ideas might arrive to the devs by miracle :P 

    plants and herbs
    small animals, chickens, rabbits, frogs near water, flying birds. (with proper animal sounds, also for wolfs etc.)
    blowguns with poison extracted from plants! (or frogs)
    medkits crafted with herbs.
    dig into the ground to setup traps and cover them.

    ski on snow! boats!!! kayaks!
    craft bicicle, and something to fly without engines launching from a high area.
    catch horses!
    different types of metal.

    crates in house with codes, upgradable from wood to metal.

    it would be so cool.

    raztoral its post apocalyptic,  its set in the future look at the concept art this lock is super primitive

  405.  
      raztoral

    ScarfaceCapone raztoral  Yes but so much futuristic and so hard to have…i prefer a simple security system like a padlock :/

  406.  
      ScarfaceCapone

    raztoral The new lock system is great.

    So love the new Lighthouse. Any chance we will be able to build spiral staircases in the future? Also when will we be able to use something like gun powder kegs or something else to take out peoples walls faster than having to use a hatchet for 30 mins?

    Bonjour,
    plutôt que de créer un code digital (qui ne fait pas très
    survie), pourquoi ne pas faire plus simple que ça? En créant un simple
    cadenas à codes que l’on pourrait upgrader tout comme les murs et qui
    pourrait être destructible ou crochetable?
     hello,
    rather than creating a digital code (which is not very survival), why not make it simpler than that? By creating a simple padlock codes that could upgrade as walls and could be destrcutible or hookable?
    Sorry for my bad english… :/
    I look forward to your response
    thanks.Merci.

    Dear development team,

    It’s so nice to see Rust getting sharper every week. And interesting that you are looking for more people – that would mean development is going to happen faster! :)
    One thing though: Please consider hiring some sound engineers and composers. I’m a musician myself and I know just how big a difference well crafted sound effects can have. Composers for some background music, it would really heighten the quality of an already promising game.
    I hope you will take this wish into account.
    -Alexander

    Seeing that icy mountain, I really want to just strap on some ski’s and race down.

    Maybe die hitting a tree on the way, for awesome ragdoll times.

    The minecrafty textures on the padlock, I actually love them. It makes the game less cluttery and are much more soothing for your eyes to rest upon. Good update overall, me like!

    Sounds awesome, just hope the network is better and I don’t have to reconnect every 15 minutes and wake up wondering where my keys went… I knew I put them somewhere…
