6:20pm EST - The client update hit and the devblog is live! Our servers are coming back up now.
5:45pm EST - The update is still pending due to some issues with Multiplay and the official Facepunch servers. We shut our stream down preemptively. Will tweet on @Rustafied when the update hits.

11:50am EST - Update day is upon us and there is some great stuff coming in! Not only do armored doors now have functional view hatches (awesome!) but we’ve got a game changer for the Rust economy: Vending machines.
Update summary video
Here's this weeks update summary from Puddy!
Vending machine overview
The vending machine is a completely new type of item for Rust. For the first time, players are able to buy and sell goods with the aid of this new deployable. Given it's an initial iteration, tweaks and improvements are still needed, so expect some changes in the next short while.
50 high quality metal
Where to place them?
Vending machines have two access points, front and back. The front is where you buy items, the back is where you manage storage and sell orders. Although they can technically be placed anywhere, given these two points of access, they are best suited in doorways (which they snap into).
Once you’ve placed your vending machine, head to the back and hold E. From here you can manage the inventory and sell orders. Create some sell orders by selecting what you’d like to sell and for how much (max of 7 sell orders per machine). Then, add the stock of what you’re selling by opening the storage container and dropping the items in (just like a storage box). This is also where you’ll retrieve the items people paid with later on.
To purchase items from a vending machine, simply go to the front of a machine and press E when you see the ‘Shop’ text. From here you can see the existing sell orders and click the buy button next to items you can afford. Once purchased, the goods enter your inventory and the payment is deposited into the vending machine.
Note: You cannot currently see the durability of the items, so it is possible for people to sell you broken shit, and you won't be able to tell till after you've already purchased.
Edit: You can now see the condition of the item being sold!
How to destroy them?
Vending Machines are pretty durable, however, they can be destroyed. When destroyed, they will spit out all or some of the contents (100% if not locked, luck of the draw if locked). Here are some stats on what it takes to destroy one of these suckers:
Note: Health will not show up till it is lower than 95%
Armored door hatches
Also coming this week, functional view hatches for armored doors! Added to both single and double armored doors, these view hatches can be opened and closed by holding E on the door. Once opened, people can fire both ways through the hatch.
Several other additions, fixes, and changes have been done this week. Check out my previous post for more details. Here are some highlights:
- Players who get EAC banned have their entities (deployables and building blocks) deleted automatically
- Large furnace now has on/off button in loot panel and can only be accessed through the alcoves.
- Flame turret slows player movement more and no longer damages deployables
- No more fall damage into water
- Smoother hatch movement
- Paper cost reduced
- Granola bar eat sounds added
