Rust General Chat II

What is Rust?
Rust is an open world MMO zombie survival game designed by Facepunch Studios. It takes inspiration from games like DayZ, Minecraft, and STALKER. To survive in Rust you may choose to work together with friends and strangers, scavenging for supplies and building giant bases, or go at it alone, killing other players for loot. Unlike DayZ, Rust aims at being a game that gives players the freedom to play the way that they want, and that doesn’t involve a hero and bandit system. With Rust, you will have to use your instinct, not a humanity number, to figure out if you can trust people.

The only aim in Rust is to survive. To do this you will need to overcome struggles such as hunger, thirst and cold. Build a fire. Build a shelter. Kill animals for meat. Protect yourself from other players. Create alliances with other players and together form a town. Whatever it takes to survive.

Free beta keys? Yeah, right.

The title before edited said “Free beta keys”, thought it was pretty dumb.

here’s my map, it has some height lines on it

Many guests are viewing this thread

They want dem free beta keys.

He’s mocking the beggers, hence the humor label. :wink:

I almost fell for it… but yeah too obvious.

This game looks most sexy indeed. I can’t wait until it is available to buy/play.

I’m looking for a video guide to Rust, if anyone has one send it to me. If not, I’m sure they’ll be one after Rust comes back online.

Beta keys they said…
“It is currently in closed alpha, and no you can’t have a key.”

Hey we have some progress.

General chat eh? Alright then, I’ll join in with a complaint I didn’t feel was worth starting a thread and/or getting banned for:

How the flying fuck is it taking this long (roughly two days) to update the game? Granted, I know precisely nothing about game development, but in every other case I’ve seen the game was still up and doing its thing until the update was finished and applied, not shut down during the whole damn process. And two days seems like an insane update time, unless the devs decided to implement literally all of the potential updates at once.

Again, I know absolutely nothing about game development, but I figured they’d have done something and brought the game back up by now. As is, it just seems like Pat is getting his beauty sleep while Helk dies repeatedly and resurrects. And all we’ve seen so far out of this narcolepsy/mass-murder combo is a new logo/title. Not exactly worth two days of waiting.

Yes, I am indeed aggravated, thanks for your concern.


You act like it’s been years since you’ve played Rust. This isn’t HL3. Hopefully these 2+ days will actually be worth the weight.

I wrote beta keys in the title as thats seems to be how all the key beggars refer to it.

We can hope, can’t we?

As others have said this game is still in early early alpha. Then there’s the fact that this update has some large scale backend changes which might be causing some trouble.

Of course I am just as eager to play the game as you are and I would love to hear some more news on the development status. But it’s an alpha, we should give the devs a break.

There’s a lot of things they’ve been needing to fix in the game for awhile now, and I think the reason the game has been down for so long is that they are trying to implement a new system so that they can push updates faster, while the fix all of the bugs and test the game at the same time. I think they want to make sure that there’s no major issues when it comes back, probably today, or tomorrow by the latest.

im crying right now it say beta key in title but there is no beta keys D:

These people should be banned.

As of yet is there a legitimate way to obtain a car such as that of the screenshot?

I wish =(
