The Early Access survival game Rust [Steam] has been updated, our server has been updated and we’re now on a fresh map.

Here’s a rundown of what’s new:

  • They’ve finally added in smaller “monuments” like the Supermarket & Gas Station, which should make the map a lot more interesting. More places to explore, hide and fight over is good! Here's what they look like:

  • Information panels for items, so clicking a weapon for example will give you a readout of rate of fire and damage.
  • The default map size has been increased, considering we have more monuments and now the smaller versions, map space would get a bit cramped.
  • Also, they upgraded their version of Unity to 2017.1, which finally fixes the issue of having no input in fullscreen on Linux (hooray!).
  • There's also been some optimizations, texture updates and so on.

On top of that, they recently added in the Bradley APC a few patches ago which patrols the launch site monument, it’s going to be fun taking it down!

You can see the full changelog of this release here. There’s much more, including work going on behind the scenes that’s worth reading.

Our server details:

Anyone is welcome to join our server and no password is required. We will remove anyone found griefing or harassing people. Raiding is fine and it’s a full PvP server, but use common sense and try to be nice. People do often shoot on sight, so be careful out there!

The server wipes once a month, on the first Thursday of each month (like today), which is mandatory by the Rust developers.

I’ve been really impressed with the Rust developers, it’s probably one of the best PvP focused survival games available.

Lastly, I give you a beautiful shot I just took on our fresh server:

Did no one get that crash on EAC? It crashes for me when it tries to do ssl negotiations. I can't find a log about the crash though. It just stops.

Now and then, but it goes away.

I needed to use the hotfix posted in july to make it work again. That was actually the last time I looked at it. And that is all *your* fault due to giving it a good review ;-).

I really really wish they'd port Conan Exiles. Would love to have a GamingOnLinux for that one. I had tried Rust for a short time a while back but yeah it was very crash-y so I uninstalled it. I'm installing it again now.

I'd rather some more co-op with the environment being the enemy type game to be honest though. Does this work this way as well, assuming all the players don't want to just kill each other.

There are Rust servers where there is no PVP or limited pvp (only within certain zones or only within certain times of day). At that point the environment is the only thing to worry about, and I believe there are modded servers with zombies as well where the environment actually can kick your ass.

On the GoL server it's a good mix, for the most part friendly and honorable pvp and finding allies and friends to have fun with. Really recommend giving it a proper go if it's not crashing as bad anymore and talk to the people on the server! Just be a bit careful about who you trust because the server does not have any pvp limitations

I'm probably going to try it out myself soon. Good to hear that there's been improvements.

Can I get an opinion on Rust from a single player perspective? I don't do PVP, hell I barely PVE. I do love building Minecraft style however. Is this game a good fit if you just like to progress skills, scavenge, build, and occasionally kill baddies in a self-hosted SP manner?
