6th Feb Update

Here is the traditional copy pasta for the newest update!

Zombies Were Removed

nozombies

Yep. We did it. We decided we couldn’t hold off any longer. The longer we keep zombies in – the more complaints we’d get about removing them. We are forcing ourselves to deal with it. We are no longer a zombie survival game! They’ve been replaced with red bears and wolves. You hate them. We know. They’re just plugging a gap for now. All will be revvvealed.

Wildlife Was Improved

wildlifeplus

  • no longer exploitable by walking backwards
  • fears hostile wildlife
  • reacts to gunshots
  • hostile wildlife retreats if it cannot find a path to you
  • wildlife should not jump up and switch to random angles anymore
  • removed white wolf

Resource Objects Were Improved

oreicon

  • added new models for wood & stone resources
  • wood & stone resources change model to indicate their quantity
  • added another stone resource – contains mostly stone

Other Changes

  • fixed bugs with the level (such as rocks intersecting buildings)
  • the ‘oil tank’ area has been modified with cover
  • workbenches make you craft faster when standing next to them
  • added new player animations
  • improved melee attack animations
  • added locked backpacks and lockpicks test ( off by default )
    • when you die your backpack is locked for everyone else but you for a time
    • someone else can use a lockpick tool to bypass this time
    • lockpick tools are a default blueprint
    • you can’t use lockpicks on doors
    • the amount of time the backpack is locked for is per-server and can be set with the command player.backpackLockTime seconds
    • can be turned off by setting player.backpackLockTime to 0
  • footstep sounds will never play the same sound as the one previously played
  • grass textures have been improved

Shared Doors

  • You can now set a passcode on a door and share it with other people – Hold E to set the passcode
  • Once they’ve entered the passcode they can open and close the door until you change it.
  • This also works on gates.
  • In addition, you can set a door to be unlocked so anyone can use it without a passcode.

Grass Improvements

  • Grass runs twice as fast as it used to
  • Grass looks way better
  • Grass shouldn’t flicker on ATI cards anymore (but let us know if it does)
  • Grass has improved sound effects

Beds & Bags

  • Sleeping bags now reset the use timers of all your other sleeping bags in a 100m radius. This prevents base “zerging”
  • Beds were added! – These can only be placed inside a house with a roof and act like the old sleeping bags did

Other changes and fixes

  • added vsync option
  • rcon now receives msgid 4 containing all console output
  • opening boxes no longer resets decay – old things should actually disappear now
  • added hud indication so you know when you’re voice chatting
  • fixed exploit where mouse sensitivity reduced weapon sway
  • added a delay to repairing objects after they have been damaged
  • metal structures now need metal to repair instead of wood
  • fixed random headshot sound that would happen when shooting near the top of inanimate objects
  • camp fire particles are no longer visible at long range (should help with performance)
  • you can only repair something 5 seconds after it last took damage
  • servers can now be added to favourites by clicking the star on the left

 

Atrium Carceri, the artist who made the initial music we had in the very very early alpha is a pretty cool guy. When we started selling rust we decided to remove his music because we hadn’t worked anything out with him. But recently we talked to him and he decided to make a few tracks inspired by rust as a demo. We’ve put them in game and will listen to the feedback, if you guys like it we will get him to do more! If you’re not a fan of music in games you can always turn it off in the options ( or press pageup )
