As at all times in the case of maintaining with survival sport Rust, you’ll be able to look ahead to bulletins from the Facepunch improvement staff or you’ll be able to go to Shadowfrax on YouTube, the charming and shockingly well-informed Rust guru who can inform you what’s what month upfront of the official newswire.
In a brand new video at the moment (you’ll be able to watch it under) Shadowfrax reveals that Rust is—almost definitely—getting pets sooner or later sooner or later. Pets!
The clue originated from the Facepunch commits log the place a brand new “pets” department appeared the opposite day. That is admittedly not a lot to go on however Shadowfrax appears assured that it is “precisely what it feels like” and says it’ll most likely be based mostly partially on the system from Halloween that lets gamers construct and management a Frankenstein’s monster.
What sort of pets? We do not know but, although hopefully one thing extra cuddly than a reanimated corpse. There are many animals in Rust like horses, wolves, boars, chickens, and extra lately, sharks and polar bears, however it stays to be seen if Rust will add taming methods for an current animal or introduce a completely new one. I’d personally counsel not getting too hooked up to your pet, simply based mostly on my expertise attempting to maintain a horse fed and wholesome for a number of days after which logging in to seek out nothing however a pile of poop left within the secure. I miss you, Pony Soprano.
Shadowfrax additionally seen a commit department testing a brand new rail community, although the log entry is accompanied by a remark from the developer stating “do not get too excited, that is by no means going to work.” Including a rail system to a procedurally generated map does sound fairly difficult, which might be why the present rail system is underground the place it will not intervene with something topside. However a floor practice sounds prefer it’d be numerous enjoyable, particularly if it is one other shifting monument just like the cargo ship, full of good loot and plenty of enemies. Who would not wish to soar on a horse and hijack a locomotive because it choo-choos across the map? See, I used to be warned to not get excited and I nonetheless bought excited.
There’s additionally an incoming repair to an exploit involving the brand new spray cans, which gamers can use to shortly change the skins of their furnishings and different constructing gadgets, like doorways. The problem is, gamers can raid one other participant’s base and, supplied they’re in a position to get device cabinet management, they may then change the bottom’s door skins from “strong door” to “door with a window”. So they may peek inside different rooms and see in the event that they have been value breaking into earlier than breaking into them. That’s, frankly, hilarious. The exploit is being mounted, nonetheless, so sooner or later it will not work on locked doorways until you open them with a code first.
That is the large Rust information, although you too can count on some tweaks to the brand new snowmobiles, the addition of an “at all times dash” choice, and a handful of recent achievements coming sooner or later. And hey, subscribe to Shadowfrax if you have not already.
