I’ve played Rust for about 12 hours now and I think I have a good idea of what I think could improve the game. I understand this is early access but some things could be changed in the future I’m giving my opinion on things which is what an early access game needs. I must say I LOVE Rust. Being a DayZ player since it came out it was nice to see a refreshing take on the survival genre. These are my opinions feel free to disagree with them but lets keep it civil please.
Here is my list
-Naked men, Yes this is hilarious I love it. please keep it but maybe give the option to wear a loin cloth if wanted?
-Radiation zones, Lots of tense moments in there with some player interaction good idea. BUT I believe they should not be in the middle of the road where players navigate to find their friends/houses maybe move the rad zones a bit away.
-Character Animations, this is probably the worst part of the game atm. Gun play is near impossible with how fast you can move. slow down the movement when you have a gun in your hand PLEASE I cannot stress this enough smooth out these animations add more transitions slow them down. this feels like awful G mod gun play. This is a survival game slow paced thoughtful movement are needed not jerky in your face cant hit me movement. I can’t tell you how bad it is that you can sprint through players to avoid them hitting you. Add a peak and lean to the game. make sprint speed slower make walking speed slower. I mean even if it was as good as ArmA 2/ Skyrim i’d be happy. Skyrim movement animations would be perfect for this game. Again this is my opinion you have a right to disagree with it but lets not be insulting if you do disagree eh?
-Crafting, Love it want more of it.
-Hunting/Exploration, Good but could be better. animals just seem to spawn at the same area all the time same with resource gathering lets make it a bit more random? and please make most of the map available to explore with roads/resources to live off the land. I really want to explore this place! It’s just not fun at the moment without animals and wildlife around.
-We need character customization!, I’ve seen the same mans penis about 100 times today lets mix it up a bit in the future.
-Weapons, want more of these beautiful guns the reloading animations/sounds for these weapons are GREAT the m9 reload is just sexy pulling back the bow feels good I just want to see more of this!
-Spawns, another awful part of the game. We need an option to group up with friends and spawn in the same location AWAY from other players i’m not saying spawn on your friends i’m saying when you and your friend are both dead you have an option to group up and spawn in the same location with each other.
-Clothing/Armor, pretty good would like to see more variety though. maybe hunting suits? that would offer less detection by animals? just an idea.
-PVP, A little bit too Gun hoe. we need a way to prevent fresh spawns from being slaughtered by everyone A great way to do this? make them NEEDED by other players instead of spawning in to a gun in your face how about a palm willing to take you in and help get you started? a simple clan system in the game would make things interesting. being able to see who’s online within your clan, set a clans home base.
make rooms for your members.special crafting options for having people in the same area crafting a giant project at the same time.of course this wouldn’t completely rid the KOS mentality it would just stop a lot of it. Some people may hate this idea some may love it but I think rust would benefit from having a faction system. could add a lot of battles to the servers that would require the help of a lot of players.
-Difficulty, I haven’t really had any problems with surviving what nature throws at me. but surviving naked rock assaults is when the game ramps up in difficult. I’d like to balance the two a bit.
Feel free to add more to this list share what you think should be added/taken away. Tell me if you disagree/agree with me but explain why please.
