What do you guys think about “rare” or “unique” items and resources in Rust?
Say you were running far out in one of the randomly generated maps and came across a grove of redwood trees, huge trees that take longer than normal to chop down, and make wood that makes much different buildings than most of the other trees you see around. Maybe they look different, have more HP, etc…
Or, maybe you are high in the mountains and come across a weird ore that spawns up there, it is lighter in color and says “titanium ore added” when you try and mine it. It creates higher quality pickaxes, hatchets and doors.
Could apply to guns and armor too. Depending on what lore, if any, FP wants to use in regards to Rust, they could tailor it as they see fit
I think this idea is invaluable to the longevity of the game. Obviously we are in pre-alpha stages right now but even now I can see the endgame of rust becoming a bit boring if there isn’t anything to keep interest aside from clearing everyone else off the server.
