I’m going to keep this devblog short and sweet this week. I’ve been working on some new stuff that I don’t want to talk too much about until it’s all implemented properly. I almost got it finished, so it should all be on the devbranch next week.

Change Of Mind

Throughout the project we’ve always had a mindset to avoid game systems. To try to make things be believable in game. While this has worked for us in past instances, it’s also very limiting. Don’t get me wrong the limits are good, but it’s limiting your enjoyment of the game.

A small example of this is with the door changes we added last week. You unlock a door, walk through, close it, lock it. The next time you open the door you don’t have to unlock it, it just opens – it remembers you. This is a compromise of the ideology above to aid gameplay.

So we’re compromising our ideologies short-term to benefit gameplay right now.

Legacy Update

An update to legacy was released this week that blocked a shitload of server IPs. These were all either fake servers redirecting to another or servers that were artificially inflating their player count.

Grass Changes

Andre changed the grass.

Tool Cupboard

So, systems eh? 80% of the community will love this, 15% will hate it, and the other 5% will write comments that start with “Why not just” and end with “instead?”.

The idea with the cupboard is that you place it in your building. Your friends come up to it and authorize with it. Now no-one but you and your friends can build within a 30 meter radius of the cupboard. Being in the radius of an authorized cupboard gives you extra abilities too, like being able to demolish and flip/rotate other building blocks.

This doesn’t mean you own your house forever. Someone could break in and destroy or clear your tool cupboard – and take ownership. This would mean that then you wouldn’t be able to build in your base, you’d have to break in and steal the cupboard back. If you build a cupboard in the radius of an existing one, the oldest created one takes priority.

This is obviously untried and untested. There’s a lot to think about, a lot to tweak. My greatest worry is that the cupboard will turn into something that you absolutely have to have in your home – or someone could just come along and drop one on your doorstep, demolish a wall and gain instant access. But maybe that’s your fault for not building one? It’s something we’re going to be testing next week on the dev server anyway – so we’ll see how it goes.

Also please keep in mind that just because it exists now, it doesn’t mean it always will. We might come up with something else in the future that makes it completely redundant.

Build System

With this new way of thinking comes a new way of building. Someone mentioned to me that they spend most of their time in Rust hammering shit, and it’s true. As cool as all that is.. it isn’t really what Rust was meant to be about. So that’s gone. No more hammering to upgrade stuff, the resource cost should be the tax – not the 5 minutes of hammering.

I have done a lot of work on the build system this week but I’m not quite ready to tell you what I’m doing because I don’t want people to get dissapointed when it all turns to shit and I end up doing something completely different.

Pie Menu

Not fully finished yet, but this should give you the idea.

Key Pad

Howie concepted the key code lock..

And Tom started modelling it

Finishing Model

Goosey made a finishing model. I have no idea when/if/how we’re going to implement it.

Lighthouse

Dan has been deciding on a base for his lighthouse

Loot Crates

Scott got the loot crates done

Meat

Xavier started modelling some meat

Summary

Some good work this week. It’s finally feeling like we’re getting to grips with the building system. We hired 3 more people too.

Next week, more of the same. Getting the building system finished, testing and handing it off to artists, bug fixes, gameplay and stability.

    nbarrager If I ever build a keypad from scraps I’ll make it so that it’s just an “interface”. Meaning that all it does is transmit the code to the unlocking system that is on the other side, safe from any tampering. But it would be interesting if you could destroy the keypad preventing the owner form entering before he/she repairs it (or it repairs itself over time). :)

    When are you guys going to address the FPS issues? When i started playing again back in Oct 5th? I was getting up to 160 FPS with everything maxed out. With this new update i got on and was getting around 3.4-9 FPS with barely anything even on! No PVT no Reflections and the terrain quality, shadows, and distance were practically at 5%.
    I am running a 6.5GHZ 8 Core CPU with 16GB of ram and a GTX 660 TI gpu, i am able to play Crysis 3 at ultra settings going 59-70 FPS and i cannot even run rust at 10 FPS when its graphics are incredibly lower then crysis.
    Warframe too is also an example, fully maxed out settings get around 180-220 FPS. Reflections, tesselation, shadows, lens flares, nvidia physx, everything.
    Please fix the performance on rust, it is making it unplayable for me and my friends and community. We used to play rust all the time even with the constant server wipes, now its a chore just to move around.

    Yes it appears I have overlooked that, thank you for telling me. While on the subject, what’s your opinion on this week’s devlog?

  6.  
      Tarmasoga

    i think we need home defenses. like booby traps. someone walks into this room well its rigged with a bent sapling with a sharpens stick on the end to spear anyone that walks in. hence you know not to go there or how to disarm it first. i think there needs to be more logic behind raiding a house because if i were in this rust scenario i would have like floors that i filed so thin if you stepped on them they would break and you would fall onto spikes or something. i know this would be opening a huge can of worms and possibilities but the biggest problem is if i work an 8 hour day and come home to play ANYONE could easily just break in while i was at work. so i think maybe the home self defense path could make it more difficult to raid and give you a chance to not have your home broken into. i mean if you can make a gun out of these resources you sure as hell could set a trap.

    hotlambert It’s got a battery, so that seems unlikely for the time being.

    ikkyino nbarrager hence the “just a thought” part.

      ikkyino

    nbarrager because ‘realistic’ is the devs goal. And frying a keypad isn’t going to do shit to open it up.

  10.  
      Bunlick

    Why not just…. instead?

  11.  
      hotlambert

    I hope the keypad and how it’s powered is an opening to a sort of logic system that may need a source of power(generators, hydro-dams, etc…) it would make players desire certain places to live like running rivers, windy highlands, and possibly interaction with old remnants(oil pumps)
    Good idea? Bad idea? Tell me.

  12.  
      nbarrager

    since you’re using a keypad that has an exposed battery, maybe you could make it possible to build a really huge battery that you can use to fry the keypad, thus, giving you access to the locked building. the larger battery would have to be extremely difficult to craft and be one use only. just a thought :)

    Feggat Use the edges of biosm to find friends.

    Use the sun as a compass and once you reach a biome edge just run along that edge toward each other and tahdah o/

  14.  
      Feggat

    A few issues I’ve been having:
    – Make the map smaller. I don’t see a point in playing this unless I can find my buddies, and with every server having a completely different map its almost impossible. 

    – The snow biome is totally pointless unless you enjoy your retinas being burned off by snow glare.

    – There’s really no point building a base atm (which makes the game itself totally pointless) because the next day it will have been broken into so you have to start over.

    If you could please make it possible for certain servers to use a set map, maybe slightly similar to the legacy map? I think you’d find most people would play on those in the end. I know I would. It used to be like “hey meet me at small rad” “tenfour goodbuddie”. Now its “hey I have no idea where I am or where to go” “me 2” “this is shit” “yeah lets play some solitaire instead”

    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

    RasmusFink

    I totally agree, Rust needs explosives back in the game. Other wise their is no strategy to the game. 

    I had over 25 people in the steam list playing the legacy rust, and now… they all play other games. 

    Please bring back EXPLOSIVES.

      SiriusWolf

    I like the first 2 lighthouse designs for sure, the third seems to shallow.
    New keypad model looks perfect, has that thrown together MacGyver look to it.
    Really like the new grass, but I have to say that Pie menu is the best looking menu I’ve seen.
    Also…I’m very glad to hear you’re tempted to change the hammering. I said once before take out
    resources faster or something, I don’t mind spending the materials just hate taking 5 hours to build. =)
    Awesome job Rust team.

    Likenlewis
    Your idea is not possible. it would mean zero for people who pass for the right person to be killed for nourished, so put a big flashing signs on top of the player saying VERY BAD. you get closer to closer to the realization that fiction as Star Wars

    VO

    ton idée n’est pas possible. ça serait nul pour les gens mesquin qui passe pour de bonne personne afin de les tué pour se nourrie, autant mettre un gros panneaux clignotant sur le dessus du joueur en disant TRES MECHANT . vos mieux se rapprocher d’un plus proche de la réaliser que de la fiction comme Star wars

  27.  
      Likenlewis

    Disguising friend from foe can often be
    difficult when meeting new players throughout the world especially those
    with guns. Although I agree this adds suspense when attempting to communicate
    with new players, a dark/light system could be beneficial to identify the good
    from the bad.
    Much as ‘DayZ’ had its bandits and heroes in
    terms of the clothing the player wore, I think this sort of idea could be modified
    into rust. Clothing is currently optional with rust which would make good/evil clothing
    an unsuitable idea; however, for those that play or have played SWTOR (MMO) will
    be familiar, the characters skin is changed as good/evil actions were taken by
    the player throughout the game.
    For example, within rust a player that kills
    on sight and uses the cannibal aspect of the game would look rather unwell, and
    likely have features that make them look ghastly. However, a player who doesn’t
    feed on the flesh of others would look rather clean and well.

  36.  
      Mattcat888

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The game at the moment just isn’t fun; of course it is not finished but the game feels too much like a time-waster… more than the average game! The biggest problem is people do not want to spend hours hammering, gathering and stocking up resources to be left with nothing the next time they log in! The tool cupboard does seem like a good idea but it will not fix the biggest hassle of the game. Especially with spawning so far away from where your building is, so the one thing left on the server that you have spent ages on is almost impossible to find without again, hours of walking. It feels like a chore to build a house everytime just so you can make it that little bit harder for the person who is responsible for making the time you spent in rust a waste. The only possible ways I can see this being fixed are as followed:
    1. When you are killed there is some sort of death stash that you organised beforehand.
      or

    2. A mini-map is added to the game.
    3. Choice of where to spawn on the generated map – only given the choice when killed by another player.

      or

    4. Some Inventory is kept.
    5. Lockable Wooden Boxes (destroying box means maybe half of the inventory inside is also destroyed?)

      or

    6. Punishment system for the killer – Evil/Sin measure (More evil/sin means harder to gather resources/build)
    7. Evil/sin status is broadcasted to other players

    Anyway, great game so far. I have been following this blog weekly since the first devblog and I absolutely love to read about the new content/fixes right before I start up the game to check it all out.
    I do think the game needs to focus more on players as well, the chat in game is nice but if the limited number clothes is all we can differentiate other players by – theres not much chance of knowing who to trust/take revenge. Maybe adding nametags above the head could work (I know you want to try and make it a little realistic, but realistic doesnt mean every player looks the exact same!) I am also very, very happy that you acknowledged that some realistic features will have to be sacrificed to make the gameplay more easy/fun. Keep up the performance updates too, a lot of people including myself have seen some major framerate drops when still running more than decent systems and with low pings.
    Thanks for being so dedicated to this game, I reckon when it’s finished it will be even more of a massive hit than what it already is!

  37.  
      Heartless Empathy

    Perhaps. But I think it shouldn’t make your items available, simply destroyed to deplete some of the mass accumulation of goods that happens through progression. No matter what, a group will always have a leg up on the single player. No matter how you try to wipe or play.

Slap, not punch, they don’t deserve the dignity.

    So yes the frame rate is back to being pretty low, and while http://www.livefyre.com/profile/67859280/ wasn’t too bad about the whole “this game is terrible because the FPS is so bad” thing he was pretty friggin sarcastic about it all.

    That said I’ll agree with http://www.livefyre.com/profile/55342474/ tho, Ricardo was worse about it, but likely was fed up with what I mentioned above, just see where people like him and I are coming from before lashing out just as badly.

    Tohveli I agree. I purchased this game and found the community very unhelpful. I am maybe too casual to play this game since I don’t live on my PC.
    Perhaps NPCs could protect new players from raiding as long as they pay a heavy tax/ dont have a home larger than 1×1 or some other penalty. That way I can get established and make some friends in the game and then I might stand a chance at having fun in Rust.
    I wish this game came out when I was 13 so I could play all summer. Being 30 sucks.

    There is one thing i would LOVE to get changed. Its the fact that everyone is able to see at night! I remember back when i started to play rust.. the fucking high level of fear when u are outside with lots of stuff and its turning night.. u wanna hurry up to get back home but u have to be carefully at the same time there might be some bandits.. oh damn i heard a shot! i have to hide and its getting darker.. damn i cant find back home its to dark! i got to hide myself between rocks.. build maybe a small shelter to survive the night. after 10 mins of hard focus on noises its turning day.. now FAST run back home! yeah im save! dang that was a night full of adrenaline. 
    Rust nowadays : Im outside, its turning night.. its getting dark.. oh np lets just set my gamma prog. and see its LIGHT! no fear no problem to get back home.

    Get my point? If there is any chance to be able making these programms useless against the darkness i would appreciate to do that! 

    not everyone will admit hes using this kind of programm.. but its fact.. at least 90% of u guys r using it ;)

    Part of me hates the cupboard idea, but part of me understands that it (or something like it) is kind of a necessity. It shouldn’t be so easy for someone who wants to raid to ransack bases—and at this point it seems like raiders have a huge advantage: Spawn, get a few resources in a few minutes, and be able to raid any base ever.

    Hopefully, in the future, there’ll be some kind of balancing mechanism that is less superficial, but for now this pretty much has to be in the game.

    I think what most “customers” don’t realize is that when we bought a game that is still in alpha, we literally said “take our money and show us what you can do.” I love watching all your ideas and creativity pour out onto the game, and I love it even more when you think of something so different and so unique that I would have never thought of it. You guys are truly amazing developers and I don’t regret this purchase in the least, in fact I have bought three copies so my friends whom don’t have much money could also enjoy your work. I look forward to what you have in store for us next week and the week after and after.

    SMB3 AlexPapadopoulos It will take time for all that stuff (Bugs) to be fixed fully. As you can understand they focus on new Material. Bug Fixing i guess for them is simply matter of time. They don’t care that much, they know the Bugs exist. But they don’t deal with them just to maybe get off the Schedule, or “slack”.
    I will wait for more Updates, and i expect a big of understanding thew the community. Rust is a nice game, people like it. But what they don’t like is that the game Turns from a SHOOT TO STEAL game to a true Survival.

    Heartless Empathy wipes don’t balance players, they make the people that play longer and in greater numbers further ahead.  Imagine playing for 2 hours a night for an entire week, getting raided every second night either by hackers or legit raiders, and then you are busy on a weekend, a tornado comes along and opens up 1/2 your house, leaving you and your stuff exposed for a weekend? it only benefits the person sitting there for 8 hours a day, or the hacker that can build a base in 5 minutes.

    I do love the idea of being able to make a massive gated community with friends and be able to farm and produce our own food though.

      Heineke

    Dannyk90 Heineke But it would be stupid if you wont put one if you are building your base, people cant build in the radius of the “Cupboard”, but my Question now is .. how much will it cost to make a cupboard .. if its to easy to get it will be abused, if its to hard to get you still get griefed. idk we have to wait and see if its going to work.

    Dannyk90 Heineke hmm yeah you’re right they should just make it so the foundations have a radius I guess?

      TrueBooleanFalse

    @ChuckoMay Nope, This alpha game does not need more than 4GB Ram to run. I know because I had 4GB Ram a few weeks ago and it actually used less than that then because Win7 x64 uses about 2GB. Now Rust seems to use a lot more, so I bought more RAM. It’s shoddy programming, and not being optimized as to what the culprit is. Another reason I know is when I open my system status, the  game starts out around 3.5GB RAM, but slowly creeps up. It might do a dump, it might not.

    So, when the game runs, RAM usage is at ~3.5GB (Game) + 1.9GB (system) + ~500MB (other programs) brings me to about 6GB Ram. Video card goes near full 1GHz GPU (normal clock is 1.2GHz) and 1.2GHz RAM clocks. 64% usage. CPU sits around 55%, using core 4 as its main.

    First Picture is while in-game, Prn Sc captures desktop instead of game. Notice the RAM usage is around 3.7GB, that is up from about 3.5GB in less than ten minutes. Second picture is after Alt+Tab, RAM usage has dropped a few thousand. Resource usage is fine, but it looks like either the GPU doesn’t update in the resource panel while in-game or Rust wont use the entire bandwidth until alt+tabbed. I know BF4 and WoW update in the GPU panel while in-game.

    I played yesterday and everything was fine; I even built a decent size home and ran from snow to desert. Tonight, again, I get this same issue.

    I don’t know my my primary comment got deleted, I think I was trying to reply to Chuck, but then I noticed I replied to myself and tried to delete the reply to myself… If I click out of the pane, my message disappears.

They when you alter legacy everyone lost it and whined like a child “but this isn’t legacy waaaahh wahhh.” If you want legacy mode it still exists. Just go play that. Great job devs

      Heartless Empathy

    http://support.facepunchstudios.com/feedback/view/1954-end-game-wipe-and-progression
    What is the point in playing rust?
    I find that a difficult question. What is the objective? To survive, yes, but beyond that, where is the context?
    I propose a few ideas to simply increase the number of outside ideas to throw at you all. 
    END GAME:
    There isnt one. You start with nothing, wind up with everything. .end/
    What about offering incentives for people to craft/obtain and require a long time to get. 
    For EX, a boat to travel to small islands within bodies of water, due to swimming now taking a toll on your body. On this(ese) island(s) there are more dangerous monsters and valuable loot crates. Going there with weak gear / alone would more than likely be suicidal.
    Perhaps equipment to descend into basic caves or crevices to explore with lurking animals not seen frequently.
    Achievement required items to unlock. Perhaps to unlock fishing pole, hunt 100 animals, to unlock farming tools, gather X amount of plants, seeds, berries, or whatever gets implemented in the future. This would expand the available things to do in the game. It needs diversity in available activities. Right now its survive, kill, build, but add farming, fishing, hunting, trapping, or etc would make it less KOS gameplay. 
    WIPE:
    I remember Gary being something disgruntled with this part. As wipe is a healthy part of the game, but making it PART of the game seems somewhat unorthodox.
    But wait! What if events caused massed destruction, but not a server wipe/reset. For example, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, floods, earthquakes created an event where the player screen would black,gray,white for 15-30 seconds with a series of noises, to be awakened up to having their houses destroyed, person(s) killed, to create a wipe-like event, without a true Wipe. These events would be random, could be 1 in 3 days, 1 in 16 days, who knows. It could also be area based. NE area of the map at one time, Then the next SE. I find this to be supportive of creating balance for players.
    Item Degrade:
    This system was attempted in Rust, and many didnt like it. It was a little to progressive, but i understand its hard to do with so many items. It needs to be in the game so people cannot simply stack up crates upon crates with (in legacy, M4, bolts, mp5s, etc). Make weapons more expensive and require rarer resources. metal fragments for basic weapons? sure. For advanced weapons, youll need to make steel. Find some iron ore and it will have to be fired with Coal ore (a rarer black rock that is difficult to find), this will decrease the war-like system. 
    Not to mention, if items degrade, and you keep walls destroy-able by hand tools, it will require 2-3 axes, to break a wall, a more worthy cost-asset-expense system.
    Vehicles:
    The map is HUGE now. However, I get it, vehicles aren’t easy to do. What about pedal bikes, basic moped/scooter, rarer ATV, and even rarer Dune buggy, or beat up car. They would be expensive to maintain, (metal, gas, etc) but navigation is somewhat harder now. They would be loud and unreliable, but that the trade-off with fast speeds.
    Key pad:
    Looks like a great idea! With the battery animation, what about the option to theft someones battery? No battery, either the door wont open for the house owner, or the door doesnt lock anymore. In order to steal the battery, it will require a 1 time use blueprint and tools to make, and a 30-60 second timer to obtain, that can fail. (70/30 chance)
    It’s a long read, but worthy in my opinion. You are progressing well, I just hope to spark some new ideas for you all.

    The game is simply to easy, me and my friends played a weekend and had all of the stuff. Our base was well protected. Now all this work was boring, Sometimes we thought we were playing hammer simulator 2k14. I also want explosives back as it was really fun to mount c4 on walls and doors. Its still a bit early to complain about that as i cant seem to have heard about not having them ingame.

    I think that those metal upgraded house should only get raidable by c4 and not by an axe. I also think that we need blueprints up soon. as stuff is so easy to make on a short time. Its a great game but in this game i find it boring.

    Leignheart AvengerJohn Longer respawn time then or/and some kind of delay on suicide command, like if you do anything or something happens to you (or if you are handcuffed) it resets the delay and cancels the command. (These would actually be quite good anyway, especially the last one)

    The value works, in console it’s showing that terrain.pvt does indeed equal false, however the actual rendering doesn’t change and, well, PVT is the entire reason for my lag. Previously I’d get 10-20fps with it on, when I turn it off and run everything else on high I get 60+. Now I’m stuck.

    bioclone_ax45 ChuckoMay TrueBooleanFalse That’s not necessarily true there bioclone, and makes you look like an elitist. There are plenty of programs and even some games that have needed more than 8gb of ram. But on average you are right., you do not need more than 8gb of ram for playing 90% of games and programs. But some do. I don’t know if this game does particularly, but I think I will look into it to see if it does. I doubt it does though.

    P.s I am not endorsing upping your specs except if you are under the minimum specs. I am saying only that there are programs and some limited games that benefit from more than 8gb of ram.

Not blindly following along is what makes things better. There should always be complainers, because if there weren’t, then things would never change or get better. So instead of telling people to stop speaking their God given right to free speech, counteract their argument with an even better argument proving them wrong, If you disagree with them ofc.

I think you should give pc users a choice, have two different build menus, one for controller support, and one for mouse and keyboard, that way nobody can possibly be disappointed. I am happy that you are somewhat listening to people. Ultimately the more fun the game is, the more people will buy and play the game. The more realistic a game does not get more players, but how fun the game is. Keep that in mind always, FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN!

    Survival is a game of the fittest. The reason we as a species have succeeded is because we are communal.
    You can survive as a lone wolf… But you can thrive in a pack. If three guys come together to bash on a wall it will break down faster… It’s common sense.
    If three people are a problem for you… Then you need to make friends or switch up your strategy.

    Hi,
    I think keys and destroyable walls will make this game worse. Reason is simple. It makes this game easier for big groups to play and harder for solo players or smaller groups to defense them selfs. In legacy there was small time cap before big groups raided your base but even that time caps is lost now. They even camp you until they get your key or they just come and destroy you walls. People get frustrated and leave servers and servers will die. Where is the fun when 10 people run over 1-3people groups? Please make this game more fun for smaller groups or solo players. And new version looks good, just quite low fps here :)

    The scenario you described should be considered a risk of close quarters combat. Let me tell you why this still doesn’t make sense. The Pipe Shotgun is also incredibly powerful, skill-wise an even easier 2 shot kill, yet I can fire it close range and quickly whip out my Pickaxe to fold someone in half. I can even put 2 loaded Pipe Shotguns on my tool belt, fire one, switch to the other and fire again without having to wait for a reload. I can spray anyone with any weapon doing major damage and without waiting switch to a Pickaxe at close range. With the exception of reloading a weapon, the Hunting Bow is the only item in game which makes you wait after firing/using it.  My complaint is more about shooting a bear and having to look at it’s dead corpse for 3 second before I can harvest it.

    PS. There is a small workaround for the Hunting Bow: After firing an arrow, start loading another one, let go before its loaded and now you can switch before the 3 seconds is up. It cuts down some of the time but its terribly annoying, illogical and/or broken.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Feggat Map doesn’t need to be smaller, any smaller and we will all be crammed. The spawns are all pretty close together. Desert, Snow and Jungle are not that far apart from each other, the Sat and Wolf are near each other too.

    You must play on some really interesting servers to get broken into.

    You can’t have a set map because this is procedural, no 2 servers have the same map, we’re all running different maps.

    People don’t like change thats the bottom line, they like legacy because thats what they’re used too. Experimental being Alpha has its ups and downs but overall does the job.

    This actually was intentional. 
    The bow is actually incredibly powerful if you can aim it effectively. Easy two shot kills on full kevs (assuming bleed is on). 100% armor penetration. The delay is so that you can’t pop someone close range with the bow and then quickly whip out your pickaxe and fold the guy in half.

I dont want them to be too easy, but if you get 100 gunpowder and maybe some metal, you deserve to have c4! One last thing, I have a question, is there random loot crates like some ppl have been saying and where to find them? :) Cheers

  179.  
      Feggat

    A few issues I’ve been having:
    – Make the map smaller. I don’t see a point in playing this unless I can find my buddies, and with every server having a completely different map its almost impossible. 

    – The snow biome is totally pointless unless you enjoy your retinas being burned off by snow glare.

    – There’s really no point building a base atm (which makes the game itself totally pointless) because the next day it will have been broken into so you have to start over.

    If you could please make it possible for certain servers to use a set map, maybe slightly similar to the legacy map? I think you’d find most people would play on those in the end. I know I would. It used to be like “hey meet me at small rad” “tenfour goodbuddie”. Now its “hey I have no idea where I am or where to go” “me 2” “this is shit” “yeah lets play some solitaire instead” “yes, indeed let us do that” *nods

    randomuser SMB3 It means a little if you want people to actually understand what you are even saying. No point in making a rant if no one can understand what your issue is, otherwise you come off as a crazy person.

    Also people tend to think less of or just straight ignore comments that are poorly constructed, which further reduces your point.

    Either way, in Devblog 31 Garry warned people they would be pushing this out, he stated:
    “We all know the problem, crazy russians making fake full looking
    servers that redirect to another server. It’s been an issue for a while.
    This is now fixed, we have an updatable list of servers that take part
    in this behaviour. We ban both the fake server IP and the server they’re
    redirecting to. If they pop up with a slightly changed IP we ban the
    whole subnet. GSPS that allow their customers do take part in this
    behaviour should be worried – because the IP bans won’t be lifted.
    This code will be rolled out to Legacy too over the next week and we’ll ban the fakers there too.”
     http://playrust.com/devblog-31/#more-1931
     As you’ll note he plainly warns providers that allow their customers to do this that their services will be blanketed banned. It is about accountability on the behalf of those providing the servers for allowing their customer base to do what they are doing. This warning was given on the 25th. If the server you were playing on or hosting thru has been hit by the blacklist, it is because the provider did not heed these warnings. This is all on the server providers.

    For those having very low fps, specially when getting out of game and coming back. To me, the game simply dropped from 25 to 3 fps after doing that, no matter how many times I disconnected and connected again.

    Then I simply hit F2 to make sure my video configs were OK. Nothing wrong here, all was the same way as expected. Then I hit F2 again to get out of the config overlay and: BAM!!, fps back to 25. It’s like the game really “applied” my settings at that moment.

    I was able to reproduce this behavior. I’ll write a bug report for dev team.

Rust was just fine as it was for me.

    Oh god thank you Garry!! This is what I was hoping for, I hated those awful trees but now you seem to have changed them. Also, that horrible building system was absolutely revolting and hammering to upgrade was very redundant, I really like the pie menu for building and lets see what you guys come up with for the building system. Now if you could do something about a map or a compass or something like that that would be great because right now its absolutely a nightmare finding someone. Also, I hope you guys are working on Rad towns because the game is hella boring without them.

    Holly shit? They actually listen to us, it’s a miracle!!! :D :O
    Good work, I have started to regain some “will” to play this game again.
    And one small suggestion, since already everyone knows, you can destroy pretty much everything with a hatchet (talking about the building related stuff)
    How about, only make the walls to be destroyed, along the windows, and if you make this, make them to be only destroyed either with a pickaxe or C4.
    Legacy’s building system is great, just add some new models and I think most of us will be perfectly fine with that.
    Another suggestion that popped in my head is add the window bars to original rust, since it’s in legacy, add it in the original one. I know that we won’t need them cuz the windows are too small to be able to go through them but when you shoot someone from your house, from windows, window bars protected you well.
    Although nice job on the update! :D

    Garry, 

    I know you are done working on Legacy, but can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fix the Hunting Bow so after shooting an arrow you don’t have to wait 3 seconds to switch to something else on your tool belt. I can’t imagine this was an intentional mechanic. It makes sense to me that you have to wait some time when reloading a gun after finishing a clip, but not for the hunting bow. The fair penalty (which is already there) should only be the time it takes to draw the arrow back before firing.

    Thanks,

      psyther

    Torvaltz Part of the desired mechanics of the game is that you don’t ever have a truly safe space, such as a base that’s always yours. They want to keep a mechanic where it’s possible to steal somebody’s entire base. If you inherently mark a building as a players, then this becomes extremely difficult to manage. Their tool cupboard idea sort of works so that you can protect your base from people simply building extensions and getting in easily, while still making it possible for bases to be stolen.

    TrueBooleanFalse Im sorry, but just looking at the Ram alone… Xbox One has 8GB of DDR3 RAM… 

    up your specs a little.  Not much, just some. Each part of your base you build and each part of any bases you run into all take resources.  Every wall is a separate entity.  Make ur 8GB, 16GB.

    I have a bit of a question here, and I hopefully it will get answered. Why do so many people complain about FPS issues? I run an AMD FX-6300 (4.3ghz), and a GTX 770 SC. That’s midrange hardware, and I have little to no issues frame rate or stability wise. Is it just that 90% of the Rust community have potatos, or is there some bigger issue that I am oddly unaffected by?

    If it’s the former, why are people complaining if the issue is their own hardware? Potato with USB port != Gaming machine.

      EnzerDeLeo

    Barrotes Not everyone does bug fixing, some people on the team are artist, some are modelers, some do animations, some code. While other people are working on the codebase to get a few of the more basic mechanics working in a way that they thing will work in a finished product (such as the back and forth we are seeing right now with the building mechanics). While the coders are doing their thing, the artists are going to pump out concept art and assets and the modelers are going to pump out new models (some may be used, some may not, but again this is alpha and in an alpha they are playing with basic mechanics to see what works, beta is when you have all your gameplay mechanics figured out and you are moving on to balancing, fine tuning and bug fixing).

    If you check the Trello, the model for the fishing rod has been done for a very long time now, its just that someone spent a day over the past week to give it animations so that they have ready assets should they fully choose to add fishing, which I think they should.

    Again, this is how game development goes and I know it is a bit of a shock for most gamers, but that is because game development hasn’t been really transparent until recently. AAA major name games go through this same thing, we as the players usually just never see it and only hear about games before launch after they are way into the beta stage where they can show off carefully crafted videos and controled demonstrations.

    Alpha: Core mechanics and gameplay. Lots of testing of ideas, adding ideas, redoing ideas, cutting ideas. Bugs are not a real focus except for things like performance issues (which they have been keeping up on) or bugs that prevent testing (critical bugs). Bugs are really only more of a sticking point nowadays because of open testing with the public (which again, for the longest time was done behind closed doors) and the fact that the majority of the people who buy early access games expect a fully playable experience and they personally prioritize this ideal, which again goes in the face of day-to-day game development.

    Beta: Core mechanics and gameplay. Fine tuning and bug fixing is the priority of this phase. Most developers use the final stages of Beta to promote their games with.

    All and all, most finished products look nothing like their Alpha state.

    So I am not really up to date on what has or hasn’t been said as far as the lock implementation goes, but I think a fairly simple fix that doesn’t conflict with the ideology or realism and difficulty of what Rust is, but also gives the players that loath the lock and key system (myself included) would be to add padlocks to the game. These 3 or 4 numbers, even alphanumeric possibly that would be input when leaving and entering the house leaving a level of exposure to stepping outside, padlock in hand (unless a friend were home to reseal it on the door). There’s a certain vulnerability to opening and relocking your door with this system. Plus, it might also be comical to see someone input something by accident and be locked out, or in, but it also gives some dynamics that I enjoyed from Legacy where you could guess the persons door number (which on 2 occasions worked). Same as always, use a little metal, make the padlock, set it on the door and put the code in behind your back before you head out to adventure/pillage/scavenge. Make sure your friends establish a lock code and you’ve established a more concrete line of home defense than the key system can offer. This also alleviates the problem I’ve heard many complain about with the burden of having, storing, and carrying multiple keys for multiple rooms. With so little space to begin with, and the lack of proper room in the Experimental storage crates compared to the Alpha/Legacy ones, I would have to agree it’s annoying and tedious.

    I like the idea behind the keys but in the end the only players that win in that situation are the hyper-aggressive seek and destroy type who have scouted your house, understand where you live, and ambush you when you’re not home to get a jump on you which to me, leaves a very open spot in the open-endedness of Rusts many play styles and instead usually ends up with you being homeless or out for a 3 day retribution spree butt ass naked because someone stole your home. Put plainly, it’s not well implemented and even if the key system were to stay the same, they need a system to differentiate keys and a better storage/carrying method. Even to fix the problem would take more creativity than the padlock system presents in it’s simplicity and execution and just adds up to a system I think people wouldn’t be fond of anyways.

    To me, Rust is what you make of it. It has a certain reputation for it’s players being merciless and it certainly exists but even Legacy, with it’s near-indestructible walls and number locks, gave you the opportunity to establish a home that felt somewhat safe and allowed for you to make the game what you wanted once the sleeping bag was set and the door was locked.

    For what it’s worth I also highly dislike the idea of then replicating said stolen keys, almost completely compromising a structure. The house is already destructible, so it’s not like you’re not already in an assload of danger even inside a Level 6 home if a determined group finds you. I like the paranoia of never feeling safe but the key thing is just too much. Even with the balancing miles better in Experimental than they were in Legacy, a well suited, pre-established group will always prevail in a house raid and the fact that they can gun down your half naked ass and steal the key to your newly crafted hut just makes the whole ordeal tougher. 

    Take your tough spot and couple it with a lack of grid/map/compass system and it adds up to what I’ve seen is about 4 hours spent finding your friends again and it really comes down to being a letdown, a loss, and a frustration. In Legacy, this would have been a new opportunity because the landmarks were easy to find and you were inspired to try again but be smarter next time and think outside the box. In Experimental, it’s a good reason to quit and drop out of the game which I see myself doing plenty more than I ever did when Alpha was around just because the initial startup is exhausting and it adds up to once again establishing a house that truly is unsafe and more susceptible because of poor game mechanics. 
    I’m a Rust fanboy to the end, and given my grievances, I love the game and it’s new direction to death. It’s different but it’s great but you can’t deny it needs work and I think most people would agree with me on some or even all of these points. Just my 2 cents but I finally think I’ve built a solid foundation to express them. Thanks for listening to me bitch!

    i call BULLSHIT on the legacy reasons grow some balls gary you fkn retard and fess up ya stuffed up on the update and caused it to give out false positives blacklisting servers for Running FTP and uploading malware when Multiplay does not use ftp deny it all ya like you told em yaself thats the reason i know ya did (contact withheld) so fix the problem and stop trying to make people stop playing legacy and play the new rust because thats exactly what you are doing we pay for a game we should be able to play it not have people say when we can and cant or have the same people say that theres and a lot of other servers are “Fake” time for you to wake up and stop killing the game

    Barrotes The art team has very little influence on the ability of the code teams. The people responsible for concept art, modeling, textures, animations, and sounds, which could be 5 different people in a larger company, don’t have anything to do with AI code.

    That said, Kuris is right. The standard for all software development, not just games, is to get the base thing out first even if it’s buggy as fuck, and then polish it later. The analogy often used is building a house. You’d never build an entire wall complete with insulation and drywall and paint before the rest of the house, that’s fucking stupid.

    The only problem is that usually the buggy-as-shit hacked to gather initial version tends to be kept in house and alpha tested in house for functionality with usage stuff added after and THEN shipped to the public but we all bought a pre-alpha game that updates us with stuff weekly so deal with it.

    I’d be willing to bet that no one would vote for wholly finished features but updates only once a month, weekly is slow enough for most people.

    On the other hand if monthly is good enough for you then feel free to stop playing and ignore all the dev blogs and come back to read them once a month.

  238.  
      Barrotes

    kurtis_v Not sure that is what the gamers want. In fact, I’m remembering now someone said they wanted a solid base, then grow from there. So far, i’ve not seen anything solid or stable in the new rust…throwing everything into a pan and hope to get a good dish ? Good luck with that.
    ( This is the part where Garry tells us: Trust us. ) Yeah…whatever…it’s a whole new dance, but it’s still the same song. They don’t take a path. Since legacy, it was a zombie apocalypse, then it was a survival only, then a farming simulator, now its refactoring, now it’s steam blueprints, now it’s fishing rods. I will be very surprised if this game doesn’t end changing name to SimCity 2016 and we have aliens shooting lasers by the current rate of developer ideas…

      AlexPapadopoulos

    Sometimes i really don’t understand people! Everything is going great and the development of early access has only one purpose! Create new ideas and implement them, so who gives an F for bugs? Early access is for new ideas and new updates to get into the game. Bug fixing also happens in the meantime but it’s not posted on any DevBlog. Use your eyes people and stop chit-chatting and bitching! Let me enlighten you: https://twitter.com/RustUpdates

    The cupboard idea is amazing Garry and i love the build wheel keep it up
    !!!

  241.  

    Thank you for getting rid of the hammering, and I hope the resource cost vs gather ends up like legacy, I love resourcing and looking over my shoulder, and running from people with the stuff I gather. And the real feeling of loss when someone takes your resources while your out. It is what rust is, and everything should be built around that.

    I’m pretty sure the cupboard is what is screwing other shit up. It will be a rough two weeks…. My suggestion would be to take whatever impacted the other portions of the game offline with a backwards update and test more before rolling out. Maybe roll out to only 25% of servers for testing. Excellent ideas here – just need to work on implementation strategy.

  245.  
      Xercodo

    bigsha Then why the fuck would you ever buy a pre-alpha game? Have you seen the betas on other games the past decade? They all last a year or more, and that’s just a beta, we’re barely alpha and that alpha is running on a engine that is ALSO in beta. These guys are in an uphill battle with that thing.

    Unless you’ve shipped a game that ran on a 3D engine I’m gonna call bullshit on any claim of laziness on the basis of lack of experience.

    Besides, they just hired 3 more people, keep your pants on cause thing will probably accelerate.

    Everyone needs to understand that we are testing a game, it is great that we are finding these bugs and problems but don’t go off the handle over it. We are all contributing to the making of this game by playing it early and finding what works and what doesn’t work. So don’t freak out because you spent a little bit of time playing and your base got raided or you got killed, I’m sure face punch is working very hard to keep things going and working. Last weak every was screaming about how happy and in expected they where when code locks came into play when the devs clearly stated the weak before that they would be added, if you don’t take the time to read and understand things please don’t fly off the handle when things don’t go your way

    Best advice is, in the future you should buy finished games, not alpha, early release titles. Seems like you’ll be much happier that way. What you’re doing instead is buying an unfinished product, fully aware that it is not finished yet, and now complaining that it isn’t finished yet. Hope that helps you!

They finally finished revamping nearly all the existing systems and are starting to add stuff again but a lot of people got bored an left already.

    And this game isn’t even officially released yet, let alone in beta. It’ll probably still be a while before everything is in solid.

    Well, I’m not a fan of not hammering. I like it, it’s real. Makes me feel like i’m actually doing something and being productive! Maybe reduced times? But oh well, I have faith that you all will lead in the right direction. Maybe  giving the OPTION to server holders for build times/animations? Idk, the idea of instantly spawning a wall 4x your size never struck me as a good thing. I also am not a fan of the tool shed/cuboard thing, but like you said, try it and see. Giving any form of invincibility in this game just… I dont know, the goal is realism so why cant I physically build some stairs in this fools yard to climb his house?! Lol. Oh well, keep at it. Nothing is a waste of time.

    jaypdee Maybe fix broken things first before adding more broken stuff? Just a thought.

  275.  
      EricNims

    HoodFX Irhcsa Except it is a MAJOR flaw not a simple bug. Without a modded server, disappearing locks make it unplayable. It could have been fixed before they worked on textures. He’s not being an asshole just pointing out the obvious.

  276.  
      EricNims

    As I was trying to find where I am AGAIN and find something I can tell my friends about (so we can meet), I perform the usual “kill” to keep spawning. All it does now is spawn me on the same beach. Dead bodies everywhere where everyone is trying this. Now we can’t use this to try to get around the map. I guess either everyone will play in the same area. Not exactly an improvement. It also seems to really be a pain in the ass when you start to get used to the layout of a map on your server then an update comes out and everything is gone (understand) but then the map changes and you start over figuring things out. This is getting really lame given now we don’t have a choice and it changes every week. You spend all this time building and it all goes away. Doesn’t make you want to spend much time building. The other side is mainly fight. Except, you never really run into anyone. Maybe make the areas of the map we can go attached and a little smaller for now. So at least if we can’t spawn to different areas we’ll at least be able to walk everywhere. This way there isn’t any excuses about getting to your friends. Thanks to OXIDE, it has made the game very playable as of the last update. Have no idea what happened to OXIDE this time.

    Maybe less frequency and larger, more tested, updates which would help with some of the issues I talked about. It’s not a bash at all and have really come around on Experimental (I’ll still call it that). Keep up the good work and it would be great to see the last thing about frequency seriously thought about.

      Vegeta897

    dogvhs Vegeta897 Yes, I suppose if you wanted to do all that work you could. But it’s a big map. And maybe each additional cupboard you create could cost more resources, or additional time or something. There’s a lot of ways to morph the idea.

    Getting in and out of your stilt base would require you to rebuilt those stairs each time, which makes you vulnerable. You don’t really accomplish much from building an inaccessible base if it’s also less accessible to you.

  284.  
      Irhcsa

    How about you guys fix the bug where our freaking locks disapear every time a server resets?

    What is the point of playing this game at all if everytime you log in you are perma locked in your house?

    Fix your already broken game before adding new shit.

    PS the cupboard idea is thew worst idea I you guys have ever came up with. 

    I have brought like 11 friends into rust. And we are all disappointed in the way things are being handled.

    Fix the bugs, the infinite respawners, the 3rd person seeing through and around walls, and make the melee weapons do differen’t things… You will see alot more happier gamers.

    dogvhs It’s not a forcefield. All it does is prevent people from building in the area. Your little wooden sheds would be easily broken into. And having a cupboard does not make your wood stronger than it already is, so building materials are still completely necessary for reinforcement.

    The reasons why there was a problem with legacy were 2: lag made movement into ‘teleporting’ and hacks.

    Developers had their own reasons for remaking the game. Dev blog  no 33  and I feel  things aren’t  following the right path.
    The most devastating thing for rust player is when some third party particle affects the outcome of many hours of effort that is believe is unfairly reached. ( various hacks, laggy opponents own your ass with a rock and you simply can’t do a thing )

    All that had to be fixed, were these two things  and this game would attract millions of sandbox game fans. We have several weeks in the  release of new rust and what do we have ? :

    –  new gameplay changes like 3rd person and looting are exploited and used to harras or steal while in combat or through walls
     – hacks already working (noclip, aimbot, speedrun)
     – player models not rendering, lagging, teleporting, makes any fight a coinflip 
     – poor melee and ranged weapon models, no balance in accuracy, damage, range. spear 1hit kills from crazy range
     – Far more hardware resources needed.  (mine is 200 fps in legacy, 60-40 in new rust ) despite all the talk about improvements and shit
     – after playing  some time fps  drops to 20-30 fps and game needs to be restarted .
     – no gameplay.  You spawn, get basic tools, try to hammer your hut  > get griefed. If griefers avoided >  make a pipe and run aimlessly around  or go  grief other players because noone is willing to spend 2 hours  hammering 1 wall.

    From a perspective it could look like a kid ranting about problems in early access game. I understand that most of these issues  is a result  of changes and testing and so on, BUT: the problem is  that development is focused on wrong things. They try to implement new game mechanics, fishing, looting without killing and while old problems persist, new things will bring new bugs and exploits making the gameplay unsatisfactory. People who bought the game almost a year ago didn’t buy it with an intention to play it in 2 or 3 years later.

    And while all the effort from Garry and his team is congratulatory, all these hours  spent on taking landscape screenshots, concept art or n’th improvement on bear model will only add more problems if the issues that we had in legacy are not prioritized. I had hopes and beliefs as well as a ton of enjoyment for this project in  spring 2014. But seeing and experiencing that all months of effort haven’t done shit and the game is pure garbage now makes me real sad.

    TLDR: y’all can overhype bout these concepts and changes all you want, but while the core issues are ignored the ‘new’ game will remain a big disappointment. Believe me there won’t be players saying ‘ oh, i just spent 3 days building this giant fortress and some ape nocliped through 40 of my doors and took all my stuff ‘
    or ‘ oh look some twat killed me with his rock and took my max gear because i couldnt hit his teleporting face. yay i guess i’ll just start over’

    THE SATISFACTION COMES FROM ACHIEVEMENTS, BEING BETTER, QUICKER, SMARTER, MORE ACCURATE. IF THE GAME BUGS/MECHANICS  MAKE YOUR EFFORT WORTHLESS, WHERE IS THE POINT OF PLAYING IT?

    If we have access to advanced stuff like digital keypads we might as have burglar alarms as well that turn on when we are offline, the possiblity of others hearing what you are up to would make raiding the base of someone who is offline alot more tense.

    What’s to stop me from dotting the land for 100s of meters around my base with tool cupboards in little metal level 6 sheds, creating an uninhabitable wasteland wherever I please? If the answer is that I can only register with one cupboard at a time, then all collaboration with strangers is shot. Why would I ever help a fellow improve his base if it means I have to drop the forcefield about mine? On the other, what point do any building materials beyond wood have if I don’t need to so expose myself? It seems one or the other must suffer.

    I honestly LOVE hammering, which made reading this devlog quite tough. u_u

    There seems to be no official word on stability being destroyed, AI getting crippled or the map becoming a pile of palm trees. I will clearly need to focus on other hobbies for the time being, but this week the game is not playable in any way.

    I am not very please to find out about the cupboard idea… but we need to see that ingame.

    oh yeah and do the locks work now?
    was getting a bit annoying having to smash my way out of my base to get wood stones and metal to rebuild the doors and locks :D :/

    galibaha TylerEveritt aspire76 That was an issue in the legacy version. There was no point in having grass on even though it looked nice because it put you at such a disadvantage. Whereas, a lag-free grass shouldn’t have the option to turn off because then there’s no point in having it at all.

    Liking the new building GUI looks and i think the idea of the tool cubord to stop people just building over walls with stairs that will be good sbut dont know how ‘realistic’ and ‘fair’ that will be… :?
    liking teh new meat renders and the grass – good job!

    However i liked the hammering (i know that sounds weird) yet it 1 – did give us somthing to do 2 – it gave an authentic feel to the game and the building and it was one of my most liek features and most reagularly used, after going and chopping down a few trees come back and spend the night and day building and upgrading your house. I think it was much better as it is (well was) now as it is more realistic and i like rust with that feel – you have to work and things are not just given too you, thats not what happens in real life after all, you do have to hammer shit before a wall pops up out of nowehere, its too much like legacy :(

    I’ll be back when I read an update that says, “First person view models no longer twitch around like rabbits on methamphetamines.”

    All of this looks good, but most importantly is optimizing the game its pointless to add stuff if the game has FPS drops , laggy , sometimes FPS drops so low its unplayable and i have one of the best graphics cards. i just hope this issue gets fixed before adding new things.

    aspire76 grass isn’t causing you lag, they’ve said this a million times.
