Check out a video summary of this update from Puddy!
Planters have been added
Indoor planting is now officially a reality in Rust. With two sizes (small and large), these planters allow you to grow corn, pumpkins, and (most importantly) hemp inside your base. Ceiling lights above will help your crop grow faster, and they will yield more resources than the plants which you find outside.
Edit: The small planter didn't make it in due to some bugs. No confirmation yet on if ceiling lights make the plants grow faster, however, there is now a 3x grow rate on planters.
Christmas is back!
First introduced last year, Rust Xmas has returned. This daily in game event places presents around every player in the server, with various goodies inside. For all the details on this, please refer to my previous post.
Clothing world models
You’ll notice a lot more world models as of the update today, as Taylor has added a plethora of new ones for clothing items.
Garry has continued his work on AI, making the days of ridiculous animal movements numbered (hopefully). This body of work is taking place on the prerelease branch, meaning we probably won't see it for a couple weeks.
