It’s a new week for Rust development and we’re seeing a couple bug fixes and progress on the new natural cave system. Rustafied is also have a trial community event tonight, read more about it on the bottom of this post. Let’s get into it...
Iron sight fixes
After the changes to weapon holds and FOV last week, a couple tweaks were still needed. Along with the alignment of the AK47 getting centered, the bolt has a new tip on its iron sight, obstructing the view of your target much less. Here are some before and after shots...
Goodbye Blaster : D
For quite a while now, certain players would sometimes appear with the wrong gender or skin tone, always rocking the name, “Blaster : D”. Those days are over, as Andre has fixed the bug, ensuring players should appear properly from now on.
P250 nerf incoming
A new ticket has been created to nerf the P250. Although it hasn’t been completed yet, the days of the OP P250 are numbered. More on this as it progresses.
Community Event tonight!
I’m happy to announce we’re doing a trial run of a community event tonight and tomorrow. This event will take place on a separate server and feature games and activities. The goal for this event is two fold:
- Try out games and events for our second annual Charitable Rust event coming at the end of November (stay tuned for more on this over the next few weeks).
- Gauge community interest in these types of events (we may put them on in the future a day or two before forced wipes).
Starting at 8pm EST tonight, this event will run till the update hits on Thursday. Our team has put in a bunch of work creating a carnival, huge maze, parkour arena, town with shops and apartments, a bar by DOA, and much more! The event server features several mods aimed at speeding up gameplay and creating more action in a shorter period of time. Here are some teaser shots:
If you’re interested in checking it out, simply paste the line below to connect to the server. Note: the server will not open till 8pm EST, the carnival opens at 9pm EST.
9/14 @ 8pm EST Edit: We shut the server down a bit early due to some some breakdowns with the mods. Thank you everyone who participated in this test event, we learned a lot and are excited to try another one of these soon!
