The game would just be another clone. Of this.
Vid of Developer riding dinosaur ;
That being said, I wouldn’t put Dinosaurs as a replacement.
Anytpe of wildlife is bad imo to keep longterm for loot… I personally can’t see myself farming dinosaurs, seeing as I HATE the red bears/wolves idea…(But I understand they’re a filler.) I mean, how can a dinosaur drop metal walls/c4/blueprints? Why would it be carrying these items…??
Military, aliens, or robots would make more sense. Especially considering Rust’s ‘Post Apocalyptic’ setting. Dinosaurs have been extinct FAR longer than thermonuclear weapons have been around.
That being said, I personally favor Aliens. I think it would be really cool, it would open up ALOT of possibilites to the game.
For example ; there could be added alien tech you can craft after getting blueprints. (Futuristic weapons, equipment, etc. is stuff you don’t see in most open world fps’s. Plus it would add some things extremely hard to craft to the late-game.)
Also, It could allow airdrops to be dropped by UFO’s. Eventually, It would be cool to be able to make make-shift helicopters, and be able to combat NPC UFO patrols for cargo. Or intercept alien ground convoys.
I think these things would be a refreshing change of pace for games in general.
