Rust-Servers.net Blog Feed en https://rust-servers.net/ Thu, 08 Jul 2021 19:29 CEST Rust-Servers.net is a Rust servers list. Its goal is to provide an efficient way for players to find a server that suits their needs and also for servers owners to get more players on their servers. 60 Voice Props DLC Pack https://rust-servers.net/blog/230/voice-props-dlc-pack/ https://rust-servers.net/blog/230/voice-props-dlc-pack/ Thu, 08 Jul 2021 19:29 CEST


The Voice Props DLC pack is available today for $12.99! Blast out some music with the Boom Box, intimidate your neighbours with the Megaphone and Microphone Stand, phone a friend (or enemy, or stranger) with the Mobile Phone, and more. But because Rust is a hardcore PvP survival shooter, we also knew we needed to finally remedy its most obvious omission - a disco.

This DLC pack includes a range of new items that allow you to record, stream, project and playback audio, as well as accessorize your base with some disco themed props. It also includes three new dance gestures and 7 achievements to unlock.


Cassettes and Recordings
Cassettes can store snippets of audio and can be used in a variety of ways. To record audio onto a Cassette, simply insert it into a Cassette Recorder and hit RMB to record. Cassettes come in 10, 20 and 30 second varieties. Once audio is recorded onto a Cassette you can press LMB to play it. You can also throw the Recorder with the Reload key, handy for sticking it on to vehicles or structures.

If you'd like to not hear recorded audio (for streaming purposes) you can disable it in the Options menu.





Boom Boxes
If you want to play your audio on something with a bit more oomph you can use a Boom Box. Coming in both static and deployed versions, you can use a Boom Box to play both recorded audio on Cassettes and stream internet radio.




To stream audio from the internet you’ll need to open the settings and select a channel. A few notes on this system:

  • We recommend content creators turn off this feature (set Internet Audio Streams to Off in the Options menu) in order to not trigger any copyright/DCMA strikes
  • Server Admins can add additional stations that might interest their players. Use the BoomBox.ServerValidStations convar to add stations (eg. BoomBox.ServerValidStations “Test Station,www.teststation.com”)
Deployed Boom Boxes can also be connected to other audio entities via the Audio Out IO port.


Megaphone and Microphone Stand
You can project your voice to friends and foes with the Megaphone and Microphone Stand.




The Megaphone is a held entity that you can use while out and about. Hold LMB to activate it and broadcast your voice. While holding LMB you won’t need to press your push to talk key if push to talk is enabled.

The Microphone Stand is a deployable version of the Megaphone that requires power. It has two different voice modes to modify your voice (squeaky and deep) and has an Audio Out IO port like the Boom Box to connect to other props in the DLC pack.


Disco Props
Give your base some late night disco vibes! Use the Disco Floor, Laser Light, Connected Speaker and Sound Light to set up a dancefloor that will make your neighbours jealous.






All of these props have an Audio In IO port so you can connect them to an audio source (like a Boom Box or Microphone Stand) to make them react to any playing audio.

The Connected Speaker will rebroadcast any audio from an audio source that it’s connected to, so you can play music throughout your entire base or hook them up to a Microphone Stand to make a base wide PA system.


New Dances
A dancefloor is pointless without dancing, so this DLC pack includes three new dance gestures. Unlike the existing gestures these dances will loop endlessly and you won’t be able to move while dancing. To cancel a dance you can just press a move input, jump, crouch or hit LMB.



Mobile Phone
Take calls on the go - and stylishly - with the latest in telecommunications technology on the island: the Mobile Phone! Giving you access to the telephone system from anywhere on the island. You can open the dialler with LMB and still move around while chatting.




We’ve also added the voicemail functionality to legacy deployed Telephones, simply insert a cassette with your voicemail message into the phone and anyone who calls in while you’re away will be able to leave a message for you. You can access any voicemail messages from the dialling screen. The number of voicemail messages that can be recorded depends on the length of the cassette, so a 10/20/30 second cassette can store 1/2/3 messages. If a new message is left when your voicemail is full the oldest voicemail will be deleted.]]>

Players now go to a crawling state when wounded in most cases, instead of being fully incapacitated. They can move around slowly and use doors. They also get a bit more health than they used to in the old incapacitated state. This might allow you to move to relative safety.



The older incapacitated wounded state still occurs in the following situations:

  • If you get looted while in crawling wounded state.
  • If you die from fall damage.
  • If you crawl too deep into water.
In both states you still have some chance to recover after the wounded timer runs out.

By default right now the base value is a 20% chance while crawling and a 10% chance while incapacitated. But you now get up to a 25% bonus on top of that (so max 20 + 25 = 45% total) based on your food and water levels. Maximum food and water = full bonus.

If the above check fails, but you have a large medkit in your belt (not just your inventory), the medkit will be used up and you won't get any health from it, but you will recover from being wounded. i.e. A medkit in a belt slot gives a 100% chance at recovery when the recovery timer runs out (you can still get killed while wounded by taking damage though). And if you're lucky enough that you pass the recovey check anyway, the medkit isn't used.

There is one exception where the medkit revive doesn't happen: Fall damage. So you can't dive out of a helicopter with your trusty medkit for guaranteed survival.

New console variables
  • woundedrecoverchance (default 0.2): Base chance of recovery after crawling wounded state.
  • incapacitatedrecoverchance (default 0.1): Base chance of recovery after incapacitated wounded state.
  • woundedmaxfoodandwaterbonus (default 0.25): Maximum percent chance added to base .wounded/incapacitated recovery chance, based on the player's food and water level.
  • crawlingminhealth (default 30): Minimum initial health given when a player dies and moves to crawling wounded state.
  • crawlingmaxhealth (default 50): Maximum initial health given when a player dies and moves to crawling wounded state.

Train Tunnel Entrance Improvements

We've added a number of improvements to the train tunnel entrances. The bottom of the stairwells now have a circular stairwell piece that is used to align the stairwell to the train tunnel grid. This has the advantage that we no longer have to snap the entrance building to a specific rotation and position, which allows us to integrate them a lot nicer inside monuments. We're planning to move more tunnel entrances to building basements or inside static monument tunnels or sewers in the near future.




While we implemented these circular stairwells we also addressed an issue that was forcing the stairwells and elevator shafts to be extremely long, which led to boring elevator rides down to the train tunnels. This is now addressed, and the stairwells and elevator shafts that go down to the train tunnels are significantly shorter.

Countryside Tunnel Entrances

Also added this month is a refresh of the train tunnel entrances spawning in the countryside, as in any entrance that lives outside of monuments.




We have redone the visuals to look like bunkers on the surface and improved the interior layout to offer more tactical options. You will also find a computer station in these countryside entrances that will allow you to connect to a CCTV camera outdoor and ensure all is clear outside before leaving.

Monument AI

This month we've added the first pass of AI scientists to the Trainyard and Airfield monuments, initially around the puzzle areas. This will be expanded to all major monuments in the near future.



There's also a bunch of general bug fixes, improvements, balance and tweaks to both the animal and human AI - including a fix for unresponsive AI at low server FPS.

Nvidia DLSS

Nvidia DLSS is now available, DLSS can be enabled via the options menu by navigating to Options > Graphics.



Today, Rust receives its latest round of content and feature enhancements, which continue to make the game better and better. And included with the update is the introduction of NVIDIA DLSS, which’ll boost your performance by up to 50%, while maintaining comparable image quality to native resolution rendering. In fact, in many instances, DLSS improves upon Rust’s previous anti-aliasing options, with reduced temporal anti-aliasing, superior detail in the distance, and improved anti-aliasing on the game’s massive amount of foliage.

-Nvidia


Take a look NVIDIA Rust comparision DLSS video:



If you’re unfamiliar with NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) then here is a quote from the Nvidia DLSS Rust article:

NVIDIA DLSS it’s a groundbreaking AI rendering technology that increases graphics performance using dedicated Tensor Core AI processors on GeForce RTX GPUs. To enable DLSS in Rust, download and install our latest Game Ready Driver, download the Rust update when released, then adjust settings in the Options > Graphics menu.

Instantly, your performance will be accelerated, for a superior experience. In our testing, frame rates increased by up to 50% at 4K. Faster performance gives you smoother, more fluid gameplay, or if you love eye candy, the headroom to crank up detail levels and rendering resolutions.

In May we also implemented Nvidia Reflex, Learn more over at Nvidia[www.nvidia.com].

Improvements & Fixes Highlights

  • Fixed Player Name Plate Delay - Fixed invisible and delayed nametags
  • AI Responsiveness - AI will now be more responsive when servers are under heavy load
  • Easier Rowboat Flip - Flipping over a capsized rowboat is now eaiser
  • Tree Birds - Birds now have a chance to fly out of trees when hit
  • Primitive Lootbox Sound - Updated lootbox destroy sound, no longer louder than gunshots

New Trailer and Summer Sale Discount! https://rust-servers.net/blog/225/new-trailer-and-summer-sale-discount/ https://rust-servers.net/blog/225/new-trailer-and-summer-sale-discount/ Thu, 24 Jun 2021 19:01 CEST here.]]> Contacts Update https://rust-servers.net/blog/224/contacts-update/ https://rust-servers.net/blog/224/contacts-update/ Thu, 03 Jun 2021 20:00 CEST Contact System
We've added a new system for keeping track of the players you interact with.

You'll find a new tab on your inventory screen which will open the contacts panel. From there you'll be able to use the various controls to flag a player as either friendly or enemy. This will change how their name tag shows up when you encounter them in the world. Players are automatically added to the 'seen' category if you've been in close proximity for several seconds.

Any player who kills you will be added to your Enemy list.





You can select any contact from the list and filter by category (friendly/seen/enemy) as well as assign a contact to a category.

Binoculars have also received a buff, and will allow you to see a colored pip above players indicating if they are an enemy or a friend.



There is a rudimentary reputation system in the works which will very slightly shade your nametag either blue or red based on how likely you are to kill on sight. This system is a work in progress and will be expanded upon in the future.

Any server can disable the contacts system with the convar relationshipmanage.contacts false

The nametag system has also changed and you can now display your name plate at long distances to anyone you are looking at by using the 'wave' gesture. We hope this will allow players to avoid killing other 'friendly' players and grant the ability to signal your intentions.



As for the majority of hardcore rust players who kill everyone on sight anyway, you may as well pretend this system does not exist as it will not affect you. However for those less inclined to destroy and kill every living thing that passes infront of them. This system might help you find some like-minded players to team up with.


Wire Colour Coding

This was suggested on Reddit and we all felt like it was a good idea so I added the ability to colour code your electrical wires and hoses this month.



Simply hold Reload while holding the Wire Tool/Hose Tool to select which colour you’d like to use.


Demo Shot System

This month we’re adding the first iteration of a more advanced feature set for viewing and manipulating demos. This has primarily been built to improve our internal production tools, but considering the rich and diverse community of Rust content creators out there we’d love for this to be a tool that all of you can use.

Once you load a demo with “demo.hud” turned on, you’ll see a variety of new options including a shot manager and scrubbable timeline. Pressing the ALT key at any time will switch control between the demo UI and debug camera.

You can now create and manage 'shots' within demos, which are individual recordings of camera motion as well as properties such as FOV and DOF. These shots can then be played back in-sync with the demo scene.


To create a shot, simply press the “New Shot” button, give it a name and then hit record - your live camera movement will now be recorded. To end a shot recording, press the Escape key.

For added management, shots can be sorted into folders, moved between folders, renamed and deleted all from the in-game interface. Folders can also be renamed/deleted by right clicking on them in the shot list.

This current shot system is the first stage of a comprehensive cinematic toolset we’ve planned out. Our goal for the future is to expand on this system by adding features such as keyframe editing, redubbing elements of shots post-recording, UI for modifying world conditions (eg. weather, time of day) and export options so you can render your shots into actual video or image files.

Are you making videos in Rust? Let us know how this tool can help you!


AI

The first phase of the AI rework is finished and it replaces multiple different AI systems across different game locations with a single new one.

Making changes to an established game as big and complex as Rust is scary, especially due to the multiplayer nature, so there's bound to be some initial bugs. Please report anything you find and I'll get it fixed.

The advantages of having everything running on one AI system are numerous, the main one being it should be easier to keep the AI updated going forwards. New features will be easier to add, and they will work across all of the AI, and not just for AI in certain areas or specific monuments.

So whilst there's still plenty more to come in this area, there are already some new features such as animal packs to look out for.


Rust+ IFTTT

Rust+ now works with IFTTT! You'll be able to connect Rust to other apps, services, and devices through IFTTT to automate all kinds of tasks. For example, all of the deep sleepers who wanted Rust+ to have a louder alarm can now connect Rust's smart alarms to your actual smart home alarm, your bedroom lights, and other services which support IFTTT.

The IFTTT integration depends on having Rust+ set up on your phone so you can pair your Rust servers - so if you aren't using it already, install the Rust+ app on your phone! Once you're all set up with Rust+ you'll need to create or sign into your IFTTT account and head over to the Rust service page on IFTTT where you can link Rust+ to IFTTT and then build applets.



The current IFTTT integration does not support controlling smart switches at the moment - this is something we're looking into supporting in the future.


Updated Animals

The animals in Rust have sucked for far too long. They stand out more than ever now with the team dropping the amazing world revamp last month.

We've updated them with brand new models and materials, as well as a fuzzy fur shader for the longer bits of hair. This gets culled beyond LOD0 so we don't anticipate a big hit on performance - in fact, in the process of updating we discovered each model had a lot of redundant bones which we've stripped out!






Along with the new models came the arduous task of updating rigs, skinning & animation.

Some animals proved more challenging than others as the updated models correct issues in proportions of the previous models, which meant changing bone placements.

Creating new controller rigs for the whole suite of animals would of increased the workload by months & also meant every single existing animation would have needed to be replaced just to get things functional.

I decided to try and force the current rigs into submission for any animation updates, although as mentioned all redundant bones have been removed. The idles took quite a while to get something natural, but are a big improvement on what we have. I've also updated walks & some runs where possible, but this really is a baseline to build upon.

I'll be looking to update more anims like attacks/cycles, and once the ai becomes more advance we can hopefully increase their motives/goals/states and I can start to add more animations to support this. There are also current issues with some of the code-based turn movement as well which I'd really like to improve and have a greater degree of control over.

Improvements & Fixes Highlights

Procgen Improvements & Fixes: Multiple Improvments & fixes To Procgen Generation

Tree Minigame: Improved tree X markers positioning

Solar Panel Update: Updated Solar Panel model


Twitch Drops

No Twitch drops this month, they'll resume in July.


Hapis Island

This has been a frequently asked question, as mentioned last month: Due to the huge world revamp Hapis Island is currently removed from the map pool while Petur works on bringing the map up to date with the new visuals.

No update on this as of yet but progress is being made.

  • Improved small battery placement
  • Small battery can now be rotated before deployment
  • Small battery can now be deployed on tables / boxes

  • Rock colliders improved, still requires continued work
  • Icelakes not generating on procedural maps - this will be fixed in July's update.
  • Bone error in SkeletonProperties - this is a harmless server warning which can be ignored. We're investigating the cause.

World Revamp https://rust-servers.net/blog/223/world-revamp/ https://rust-servers.net/blog/223/world-revamp/ Thu, 06 May 2021 20:02 CEST

A Whole New World

This month Rust has received a huge visual update, the biggest to date! From new terrain, trees, rocks, cliffs, decor, grass, monument reworks and so much more.

This is the culmination of work by several people that took place on and off over the last couple of years. It greatly improves how the game feels and gives it a fresh look.



Most of the new visuals were developed alongside the transition of the game to the High Definition Render Pipeline of Unity (HDRP) that we subsequently dropped after unsatisfactory performance results. We didn’t want to waste the efforts made to make the game look better during that time and ported them to the current version of the game instead.







We also took the opportunity in the last two months leading up to this update to fix a vast amount of long-standing issues revolving around monuments, world procedural generation, and exploits.

For example, you'll find cliffs, road, terrain, river generation much improved.

We re-worked some monuments completely such as the Junkyard, Satellite dish and integrated many of them inside the procedurally generated world more seamlessly than before. For example, you'll now see larger monuments and hubs now have bespoke subway tunnel entrances within their perimeter.







When it comes to performance, we did our best to keep the current status quo or improve upon it in some areas of the game. But since this update adds more content than it removes, we do not expect a major improvement in performance overall.



The Bandit Town is known for one if not the worst performance area, and this gave us the perfect opportunity to address this. We reduced the number of NPCs, reduced the forest density and completely remodelled the huts.

This is only touching the surface of changes, and you'll find many more changes and new additions while playing.


Junkyard Revamp & Crane

The Junkyard monument has received a complete overhaul, our original vision just didn't work out as well as we hoped. Once we adding flight into Rust it only made things worse. The revamp should hopefully resolve all the commonly complained about issues and make it a hotspot for action.



Not only did the Junkyard receive a complete overhaul we've also added a driveable crane that can pick up vehicles and drop them in the shredder located at the centre of the yard. Dropping cars into the shredder will yield scrap.



- Moving the crane too far away from the Junkyard will destroy the crane


Bush Displacement

Since the HDRP content backport comes with much nicer foliage, we noticed during playtesting that bushes got in the way when building a base a lot more than with the old foliage. To counteract this, bushes are now removed when building on top of them. Of course bushes won't be gone forever and will automatically respawn in suitable locations around the map.



This uses the same system as trees, which guarantees that a nice and even coverage across the map will be preserved and we don't end up with large areas that don't have any bushes at all.


Nvidia Reflex

Nvidia Reflex is now available! Reflex can be enabled via the options menu for all Nvidia users using GeForce GTX 900 Series or newer. Enabling Reflex has shown up to 38% reduced input latency within Rust.






Improvements & Fixes Highlights

Mounted Gestures
Gesture while on horses, boats, seats, etc

Alt Look
Restored 3rd person feedback when a player is alt looking

Poker Table
Multiple poker table fixes and improvements

Bandit Camp Recycler
Due to popular demand the Bandit camp now has an extra recycler

Hitch & Trough Improvments
Doubled health recovered by horses and decay time reset after eating food

Junkyard Carlift
Public carlift can now be used at the revamped Junkyard

Check out the changelog for more changes.


Server Changes

As of this update, the servers that were moved temporarily due to the fire at the OVH datacenter in Strasbourg have now been moved to a permanent home, we'll be moving all the player blueprints etc. over so the affected servers may be delayed by a few minutes starting back up.

The following EU servers have moved to new IP:

  • Facepunch EU3 - 51.210.222.140:28015
  • Facepunch EU4 - 51.210.222.140:28020

When your life’s at stake, there’s only one thing you can do—grab whatever you find and use it to your advantage. Like that Heavy Plate outfit that’s apparently all the rage and will show everyone around how inventive you are. Or the Salvaged Cleaver with which you’ll chop both zombies and bandits as if they were veggies (quick disclaimer: do NOT eat the zombies! Or the bandits!). Prefer fighting from a distance? Then shoot your enemies with the Custom SMG or the Rust Assault Rifle, the latest advance in unconventional weapon-making. And for the final piece of your survivor’s kit—the new buggy, Rust Bucket—the capstone of your engineering skills. You can be sure it’ll put to shame all who have ever doubted your talent as well as remind you that nothing is impossible. Even building a car in the middle of a post-apocalyptic wilderness.

Now, let’s put all that equipment to good use and see just how long you can survive against flesh-hungry zombies and ruthless bandits. What’s more, the scientists from Rust must’ve heard about the Harran virus and have come to investigate the deadly pathogen. Surprise them with your amazing parkour skills and show them what you’ve learned from years of fighting the infected. They’re not the only enemies you’ll encounter, though. In both the Slums and the Old Town, you’ll find outposts full of Rais’ bandits. They’re dangerous places, but you’ve been to such by now, haven’t you? Crash through the front door and wreak havoc among the enemy lines or take them silently, through stealth. They won’t know what hit them, and you’ll leave with powerful elemental C4 explosives. You’ll use them better anyway, right?

Still, surviving in Harran may prove harder than expected—but you already know that. Fortunately, you’re a skilled inventor and a full-fledged survivor. Who better to build something out of nothing than you? With the right materials, you’ll be able to research and craft improved versions of your weapons. Look for the necessary resources and let ’em see how deadly scrap can become in the right hands.

The bundle contains:
  • Heavy Plate outfit
  • Buggy skin—Rust Bucket
  • Short axe—Salvaged Cleaver
  • SMG—Custom SMG
  • Assault rifle—Rust Assault Rifle


Global goal:
Hunt down bandits (1 000 000).
Reward: A docket for the C4 Elemental Variation Blueprints

Local goals:

Research bounties:

Collect Scrap (30) and Plastic Tubes (2)
Reward: Gold Rust Assault Rifle Blueprint

Collect Scrap (20) and Nails (10)
Reward: Gold Rust Custom SMG Blueprint

Collect Scrap (10) and Tin Cans (5)
Reward: Gold Rust Salvaged Cleaver Blueprint

Raiding bounties:

Find and raid Rais' Bandit Outpost in the Slums
Reward: Elemental C4 Bundle

Find and raid Rais' Bandit Outpost in the Old Town
Reward: Elemental C4 Bundle

The Rust crossover event and the Rust DLC will come to PC on April 19, 19:00 CET. The event’ll last for a whole week (until April 26, 19:00 CET).

Both the crossover event and the Rust DLC will appear on consoles mid-May.

Gestures

You can now express yourself with a new selection of gestures, available to everyone in a simple popup menu during gameplay. Just press B (by default) to open the menu and look at your options. These new gestures have been built to be used in first person, so you get nicely animated hand movements instead of just seeing your shadow gesture. This new system for gestures is a bit more flexible than the old system, and it has already supports some future features like looping animations and third person gestures.




A core goal of this new gesture system was reducing as much risk as possible when using them during tense gameplay. Gestures will now no longer unequip your weapon and can be cancelled at any point, with a small (~0.2s) delay before your weapon is fireable again. Feel free to wave at your victims when roof camping!



Fun fact: these gestures are all left-handed because they were initially meant to be used while holding the weapon at the same time (which is generally in the right hand), however we felt it limited our future options for gestures - clapping with one hand is tricky.

As we felt that the quality of the legacy gestures weren't up to scratch compared to these new animations, we've made the decision to remove support for playing the old gestures. You can however still bind these new gestures using the same commands/keybinds if you don't want to use the gesture wheel.


Poker Tables



We've added Poker Tables to Bandit Town this month, completing our casino barge overhaul that we started last month. You'll find a variety of tables supporting anywhere from two to six players.



Deposit at least 100 scrap to the storage at your seat to get started. Once you're in a game, use the button prompts on the right of the screen to play. Standard Texas Hold 'Em rules apply. Be sure to take your winnings at the end of your session!



While in a poker game you'll have access to a poker chat window for you to chat with your fellow players, and you can also use your mic.




Server Optimizations

We've made a variety of optimisations on the server to improve performance when lots of players are online:

  • Floating junkpiles will no longer process buoyancy if no players are nearby
  • Better balanced server load when lots of turrets are scanning for targets
  • Upgraded SQLite and removed lots of GC allocations in the connector code
  • Update Facepunch.Steamworks with buffer pooling for swnet (Steam Networking only)
  • Rewrite NetWrite to have less CPU overhead
  • Add caching to TechTreeData since it could cause short CPU spikes on the server
  • Got rid of some small GC allocations that happened every frame

Slot Machines

The Slot Machines we added to Bandit Town proved popular last month, but I wanted to make some changes to make it a more interesting experience. I've rebalanced the payout scale to have fewer possible rewards, but the chance of getting a proper payout (three matching symbols) should be much higher than before. The majority of scrap payed out last month was via the wildcard symbols which felt a bit unexciting.



I've also added a multiplier option, so you can increase your bet and multiply your winnings accordingly. You can change the multiplier on a machine when depositing your scrap. Be sure to check the spin cost before spinning on a new machine!


Unity 2019.4.22

We've upgraded from Unity 2019.4.4 to Unity 2019.4.22 this week. This release contains mostly fixes, but we've been waiting for some of those fixes for a long time and they've finally been backported to our LTS version. If you notice any sort of compatibility issues you didn't have before, definitely let us know.


Mac Improvements

Over a year ago, we filed a bug report regarding Unity's graphics jobs feature causing a crash on macOS after a few minutes of gameplay. This has finally been fixed and backported, so we re-enabled graphics jobs on macOS. This should greatly improve performance.

We also re-enabled incremental GC on macOS, which should reduce stalls from the garbage collector. We've had issues with this feature causing huge stalls in the past, which is the opposite of what it's supposed to do, so definitely contact us if you're playing on macOS and you notice any second-long stalls you didn't have before.


Hapis Update

We've tackled the Red Keycard shortage by making them available in all corners of the island again.
In addition, we've added a marketplace and gambling den to the Compound.

Viewmodel Jitter Fix

The view model jitter is finally fixed. It's an issue that's as old as Rust itself (and no it wasn't on purpose). The reason that this happens is because of floating point precision, the further away from 0 you get, the less precise things get.

Pretty much every game that has View Models, probably has some kind of hack to support them. In the past we didn't really think it was worth using hacks to fix it. HDRP was supposed to allow us to fix this kind of issue, but since we aren't going to be switching to HDRP I decided to see if I could fix it with some not so new Unity features that I'm pretty sure wasn't available when we started Rust.


Improvements & Fixes Highlights

  • Disable Blood Option - Blood can now be disabled through the options menu
  • Player Hitbox Bug - Fixed projectiles fired at players joints not impacting
  • News Menu Update - News section now displays the full content of the blogs
  • Hostile Timer Reduced - Safezone hostile timer reduced from 30 minutes to 5
  • Heavy Armour Riding - Players can no longer mount horses with heavy armour equiped
  • L96 Skinnable - L96 skins coming this month
  • Team Member Mounting - Team members can now mount vehicles after purchased
  • Vehicles Reposessed - Vehicles are now reposessed after 5 minutes instead of 2
  • Revolver & SAP Recoil - Tightened up recoil response on revolver/sap including animations


HDRP Backport Beta

In May 2019 the team set out on a mammoth task to explore and switch Rust over to Unity's HDRP pipeline. HDRP boasted many visual fidelity improvements and new tech, best of all it was said HDRP was more optimized resulting in better performance. Switching and updating all our assets over to HDRP was months of work but we figured it would be worth it in the end. Long story short after months of work, testing and profiling we never saw the performance gains we expected from HDRP, in fact, it was worse. Faced with this dilemma we took the difficult and long overdue decision to halt all progress on HDRP and begin to backport all the updated assets back to the current pipeline.



After many more months we're now at a stage we feel the backport is approaching the final stages and ready for public testing and feedback. Wednesday, April 7th we'll be opening HDRP backport publically which will be available to play from the "Rust - Staging" client via Steam by opting into the "Aux01" beta branch.

The backport has updated nearly all of the world objects, rocks, foliage, trees and even many monuments have received some love.

Due to the nature of continued changes on the backport wipes will be frequent, we do not recommend regular play, at least until later into the month.

Mapmakers be aware a number of assets have been removed/updated which may have an impact on your existing designs.

If testing and feedback prove positive we'll be aiming to release the backport on Thursday, May 6th. We don't expect performance to be better than release but we also don't expect it to be worse.


Easter Event



For the next week, every 24-38 hours in-game hours an easter egg hunt will begin. You'll have 3 minutes to collect as many eggs as you can. The top 3 players are given special eggs as a reward. These eggs can be cracked open for various types of loot ranging from scrap all the way up to an M249!

If you don't make the podium, that's okay. The painted eggs you collect can be upgraded to Bronze eggs once you collect 10. If you collect 10 bronze eggs then you can upgrade to a silver egg, eventually all the way to gold!

There are various items available to help you during your hunt. The Easter Basket will allow instant pickup of eggs and the Bunny Onesie and Ears will provide you an advantage via Egg Vision.

Have fun!

New Items

This year we've added a new workcart themed Rustigé Egg and a Bunny hat with wobbly ears and eyes.



In addition to this weeks skins, You can find these items available on the Item Store

Gestures Update https://rust-servers.net/blog/218/gestures-update/ https://rust-servers.net/blog/218/gestures-update/ Thu, 01 Apr 2021 20:01 CEST here.]]> Freight Transit Line https://rust-servers.net/blog/217/freight-transit-line/ https://rust-servers.net/blog/217/freight-transit-line/ Thu, 04 Mar 2021 20:01 CET


Rail Network

You'll now find train entrances scattered across the world, typically you'll find entrances next to existing monuments. Upon the first inspection, they may not appear to be anything special but after venturing inside deep below the terrain, you'll now find a vast rail network with drivable workcarts.



When entering the train entrances you'll notice the huge spiral staircases penetrating deep into the terrain, central to the stairs you'll find a much quicker, but perhaps less safe elevator shaft.



Everything in Rust wants you dead, these tunnels are no exception. Upon reaching the bottom of the shafts you'll encounter some not so friendly tunnel dwellers. From this point forward you'll likely to encounter many more dwellers if you decide to continue exploring.



With risk comes reward, while the dwellers may be unwelcoming the loot they protect could well worth the risk.

After exploring the shafts and tunnels you'll finally be standing at the rail platform. On each platform, you'll encounter more dwellers but increasingly better loot.



At the end of each platform, you'll find a driveable workcart.

Consider this a first pass of a new dungeon system. Everything here is procedurally generated and we plan to add new track segments, bespoke entrances at each monument, puzzles, new NPCs, and eventually use this system to procedurally generate the cave network.


Workcarts



Each station of the Freight Transit Line will have two workcarts facing opposite directions. Running on Low Grade Fuel, these can be used to rapidly traverse the map. There are 6 throttle settings (3 forward and 3 reverse) and the vehicle will remain in operation even after you depart the cabin.



You may also encounter NPC barricades deep in the tunnel system. Be sure to slow down when approaching as hitting barricades or other work carts at high speeds will damage your workcart. Don't worry though, when a collision is imminent, a proximity alarm will sound and you can adjust the throttle accordingly. Barricades can be broken through without damage to your cart if approached at low speed.

If you encounter a track junction, you can use your left or right strafe key to choose which track to follow. Lastly, damage will slow the speed of a workcart and it can be repaired with a hammer for metal fragments.




Slot Machines



Test your luck with 3 new Slot Machines in the gambling room of Bandit Town. To operate the Slot Machine you need to mount it and then deposit Scrap to start betting.



Each bet is 10 Scrap and the payouts range anywhere from 3 to 6k Scrap. Be sure to grab your winnings and any unused betting Scrap before leaving. Good luck!


Server Browser

As I'm sure many people are aware, there are quite a few issues with the server browser. You will likely never be able to see every Rust server out there due to the how Steam implements this functionality, but it can be improved. I made a few internal changes to the server browser to improve discoverability of servers:
  • Empty servers are now hidden by default
Unless you're on the official, friends, history, or favorites tabs (they will always be shown here)
Note: This means you will need to enable showing empty servers sometimes
  • The "Show Empty" filter will now apply filtering within Steam
This means when "Show Empty" is off you should see no empty servers and see more of them
Toggling the "Show Empty" filter will force a refresh of the community and modded tabs

We also made the tags look less terrible. We're working towards a UI refresh for the server browser so the filtering will improve even more in the future. We're also always working on cleaning up the server list to remove servers that are spamming, advertising, or lying to try and get ahead.


Server Performance

Whilst looking through the server profiles recently, We noticed that certain entities were updating and sending data more than they needed to. Two of the biggest offenders were entities with buoyancy (boats) and horses. Now we try our best to not update them if there aren't any players around or they aren't in use.

Combining these fixes with some fixes that Jarryd made with entity flag networking, servers should handle more players a bit better both in terms of CPU and bandwidth usage.


Steam Family Share

Players abusing Steam family share to circumvent bans and other malicious behaviour is not uncommon, on February 17th we disable Steam family sharing for the foreseeable future.

We currently have no plans to re-enable Steam family share.


Improvments & Fixes Highlights

Healing 3rd Person Animations Bandage and syringe 3rd person animations when used on another player

Oilrig RF Frequency Fixed Oilrig RF constantly enabled

Smoother Horse Movement Smoother horse movement when traversing bumpy terrain

Mixing Table Box Due to popular demand you can now place a small box under the mixing table

Freight Transit Line https://rust-servers.net/blog/216/freight-transit-line/ https://rust-servers.net/blog/216/freight-transit-line/ Thu, 04 Mar 2021 20:01 CET here.]]> Lunar New Year https://rust-servers.net/blog/215/lunar-new-year/ https://rust-servers.net/blog/215/lunar-new-year/ Thu, 11 Feb 2021 20:01 CET
First off, throughout the Lunar New Year celebration, everyone will be able to craft a set of throw-able firecrackers to make a racket. Traditionally set off to scare away evil spirits, many people would set them off when opening the front door before they went out. We somehow doubt these will scare off a dedicated door camper but you can try!

Server update is required to enable craftable firecrackers - experience on community servers may vary.

Ox Mask
To celebrate the year of the Ox we have created a beautiful Metal Ox Mask with jiggling tassles. Similar to last years Rat Mask, it replaces the wolf headdress.




The Ox mask can be purchased on the Rust item store.

New Year Items



In addition to this year's Ox mask, we’ve added items back from prior years sale to the item store, the Dragon Door Knocker, Gong, Fireworks Packs and the Chinese Lantern.

Also, Don't forget Rust is currently 33% off in the Steam Lunar New Year Sale until the 15th February, now is the perfect time to get your friends involved!]]>

Every once in a while you will hear the sound of jingle bells. Run outside and look for a gift! Two gifts are spawned per player, in a radius of about 40m from where you are standing. Run up and bash it open to receive your Christmas presents. They come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. If you have enough small presents stashed, you can "trade up" to a medium or large. The contents of each present vary, but you'll find a mix of resources, weapons, and candy. We've also added wrapping paper allowing you to wrap up items as gifts to other players, perhaps sold in your vending machine...

Once again, you will be able to find Santa hats and reindeer antlers, both of which can be worn and provide a decent amount of protection. There’s also a lickable candy cane club, and two types of stockings. If you hang a stocking inside your base when the jingle bells ring the stocking will fill up with loot. The larger stocking has a higher chance for better items and both last around 5-10 refills.

Stables Update https://rust-servers.net/blog/204/stables-update/ https://rust-servers.net/blog/204/stables-update/ Thu, 05 Nov 2020 20:03 CET here.]]> Happy Halloween 2020 https://rust-servers.net/blog/203/happy-halloween-2020/ https://rust-servers.net/blog/203/happy-halloween-2020/ Mon, 26 Oct 2020 20:02 CET

Once roughly every two in-game days, a candy hunt event will begin. You'll have 3 minutes to collect as many candies as you can. The top 3 players are given special loot bags as a reward. These candies and loot bags can be opened for various types of loot ranging from scrap all the way up to an M249!

If you don't make the podium, that's okay. The Candies you collect can be upgraded for better loot.

There are various items available to help you during your hunt. The Pumpkin Bucket will allow instant pickup of candies and the Scarecrow Wrap and will provide you with an advantage via Candy Vision.

We've also updated the Halloween loot tables from last years event and added a new item "Ghost Costume" (see above image), you'll be able to find these as rare drops from killing Scarecrow NPCs.

The Halloween event will run until November 5th. More Details can be found on the blog[rust.facepunch.com]

Have fun!
