A few Suggestions for the Upcoming Vehicles!


Why hello there! I thought I’d collect some of my thoughts and suggestions for the future vehicles in Rust!

Yes, the picture above is indeed a car I saw in Rust legacy. Though I’m not sure if this was modded or only available for admins.

Alright, let’s get into it!
(Click images to enlarge them)

1. Garage Gates/Doors
Of course you want to keep your vehicle save from all the raging nakeds so you’d need to be able to craft and build big garage doors.
Here are 3 ways I think this could be implemented:

2. Lier or simple hook and rope
You will get stuck with your vehicle so maybe a buddy can come along and pull you out of it.
Here are 2 possible designs:

3. Placeable ramp
Because your foundations aren’t always level with the ground.


4. Fuel canister
Because who the f stores fuel in a glass jar? This should be a physical item to carry to your car and fill it up.


5. Wrench
Who’d hit his car with a hammer. This is an extra item you’d need to be able to repair your car.


6. No third-person!
This should be self explanatory.

7. New traps: pile of nails and / or a wooden board with spikes
This stuff should be pretty expensive to craft so the streets don’t get spammed with them.

8. Transmitter
Installing a little transmitter (maybe for the electro update) so you can see your vehicle on the map as a seperate different coloured dot.

9. Keys
So you can lose your vehicle.

10. Speed limitation
Cars shouldn’t be able to drive faster than 40 kmh (ca. 25 mph) in my opinion. Maps would seem too small and people could get anywhere whithin 1 or 2 minutes.

11. Small trailer
A small trailer (and I’m talking very small) so you can carry just a little bit more stuff. This would make you drive even slower. Obviously.


12. Signs on doors
The possibility to put the already existing small wooden sign on the doors of your vehicle. (Not everywhere so people don’t create own camouflage for their vehicles)

13. (Not very important) Radio
It would really be nice to have some new music in rust. Maybe even have a functioning radio tower monument for that. :wink:


14. (Not very important) Windshield wipers
IF your vehicle does have a windshield and you can only drive in first-person - you couldn’t see sh*t if it’s raining, so you’ll need those.


15. Armored plates
The possibility to put armored plates on the outside (craftable seperately). Because your vehicle will be expensive, and it will take forever to build it. So a little protection would be nice.

If you have thoughts about the suggestions I made or any additional suggestions, feel free to tell me about it! :slight_smile:

These should work well for the modular approach the devs are taking to vehicles–especially the armored sides. Also agree that our rolling junkyards have every reason to have limited speed. Not so sure about yet more damn keys. Gates could open out and to the side, so the allowed height is more flexible.

According to the mind map, the vehicle system will also lead to siege weapons. (Maybe we’ll see a vehicle chassis and a siege weapon chassis; while the vehicle chassis can be made into scrapyard vans and lorries and armored cars, the siege chassis could become a cannon, stack of gunpowder barrels, mortar, catapult, etc.) Maybe the weapons will be modular options for the vehicles–who knows.

yeah i could see them all in near future

yeah i could see them all in near future would be cool if we could attach weapons to it. like an Humvee
with an Big weapon on it

All good suggestions but keep in mind the system needs to start simple before it can get full of stuff like this.

“Witness me”.

Made a post a few days ago with many of these suggestions as well, guess great minds think alike! I would love to see these implemented with the vehicles, and with the modular building, perhaps different parts as well, such as armored tires witch do well with mines/spikes but slow speed, or the choice between lots of armor at the cost of speed and/ or storage space.

Yes, it will start simple. But having some suggestions come in while they’re working on it shouldn’t be a bad thing. I’m just trying to contribute ideas to the development of this awesome game. :slight_smile:

Wow I didn’t even notice that thread. It’s amazing how many of these I mentioned. :shock:
