2:30am EST - A bit of a light week for Rust commits but we’re seeing improvements to AI, tweaks to food, QOL additions. Also, many larger changes are still not on staging to test before the monthly forced update week!
Alistair has added the ability to place deployables on the repair bench. You are now also able to place a small box underneath the BBQ.
Some more forward facing AI tweaks this week including bandit guards taking action if a player is sleeping too long or if a smoke grenade is deployed.
Slot machines incoming
It looks like another type of gambling is on the way as the art for a slot machine was completed this week. No word exactly how these will be implemented yet, but we'll keep you posted as we know more.
Food and Health tweaks
Corn and pumpkin growth time has increased now that they are complete when you pick them. They can be stacked to 20 in your inventory including your hot bar for some pumpkin spam healing! With that in mind though, health over time takes much longer to convert to actual health. At this time we cannot display this effect until it is merged into staging. Stay tuned!
