so i was talking to a friend about the robots in rust, and how facepunch are trying new ways to get people to work together, and curb a bit of the KoS that happens, when he gave a really good idea;
Some Players have Skills.
No i’m not talking about “levelup put 20 points into small guns” i mean things such as, you find a wrecked vehicle (Hypothecitally of course) but you don’t know anything about motors, so you walk back to your base, and on the way you meet a naked, and he tells you that a Mechanic lives nearby (if you havn’t Piped him from existance by now, and i wouldn’t blame you, Damn Nekids).
so you go up to the Mechanics house, after a tense greeting of “WHO DA F*CK R U” you ask him for his services, in exchange for, say, 500 Met Frags.
Another scernaio is say you get shot in the leg with a meduim-caliber weapon, your running slows to a hobble, you have bandaged the wound, but the Round is still in there, Solution, you go to Crazy Joes 24/7 Clinic
The only problem with this idea, is how the players get skills in the first place, it wouldn’t make much sense for a new spawn, to have intricate medical knowlage, so perhaps you must be alive for a certain time or find a book a la Fallout.
Let me know what you think.
