Im sorry Garry but the new building system takes us our freedom, You cant place walls where you want to or railings etc. thats what hurts me the most.
You should rollback to the previous system, it would work great with the Tool Cupboard, eliminating glitchers, but cupboard overall is a bad idea, taking freedom again. Ill make my points 1 by 1 to make everything clear
New building system takes freedom, as walls need to be placed at specific pre-destined locations - same goes with other elements
One of the huge advantages of the game was making huge customizable constructs, cities and other amazing things (You know that, just look at the community updates) Also buildings were looking really good back then. WHY ARE YOU GOING BACK TO LEGACY! IT"S THE WRONG WAY! and it looked as shit.
Cupboard takes player freedom, I think it should be removed or re-designed to work some other way.
I know it protects us from glitchers and griefers, but things like glitches should be fixed IN THE CODE not by adding an item like that. I know you can make it happen Garry. The second thing is griefers, you should first implement some basic ways to PROTECT your home, in previous builds if you were smart enough you could protect against that also - So look at the people how they protect against that and implement some parts/builds/mechanics based on their ideas.
- The Wheel - It’s really nice for selecting building elements and actions - but it should be more clear for the user to operate in the wheel so he will know what hes looking for and what is he selecting.
When u roll around the options on the construct wheel it makes epileptic animation (wiggle or something) that pisses me off.
another thing, it will be more useful in the future if you guys will implement more interaction with the world, for now it changes nothing in particular, just misleads the player. The menu is not clear, the icons should be bigger with colors preferably, as it adds the taste to the game, not some sci-fi grey aesthetics
- upgrading/de-grading mechanics is a pain and is totally unnatural, walls upgrading by themselves? what is wrong with you? I know its nice to not hammer things down for 20 mins, but its not the way to do it - IT REALLY NEEDS TO FEEL NATURAL
As you are in the house you could always defend yourself by repairing the walls etc. it is the same now, I think that should be changed - so again - add defense mechanics instead of hammering down the walls while raiders hatchet it.
Option 1: Make the upgrade an instant action when you hammer it down - feels more natural.
Option 2!!!: insta-destroying walls shouldn’t be an option, every house in the real life is really hard to re-design - the frame system was nice as you could first see that will be the effect before building it, also walls that destroy when u order them to, what a stupid idea. You failed to build it properly, you would do it better next time. its not hard to build another house or anything. If the house is not used for a long time, it should rot/grow plants on it, ruin degrade at a slow rate, reaalllyyy slow rate (AND VISIBLE OFC). but we should be able to see if the house wasn’t used for few RL days. until it collapses (20 RL days) leaving ruble or something like that which can be scavenged for resources. That would add a real nice feel to the game.
Option 3: Make tools for faster, more efficient building upgrading - that would solve it.
textures - I know, i know - its in development and it wont look as it looks now but for the record - it looks disgusting compared to your previous project.
food/starvation - If you punish the player for not eating thats OK, I think thats a good change, but first implement some WAYS to feed the player except hunting animals!
You got the fishing rod ready, make it happen!
Many people want you to implement crops/farming system, thats a good idea - and it will add more survival taste to the game (IT’S A REALLY GOOD IDEA). It will also add trading/social interactions and teamwork which accomplished gives You huge satisfaction in rust. We need some rewards for creating a community in this harsh world, which exceeds your closest friends, instead it rewards people for beeing friendly and helps them create communities, as for now its ONLY raiding and chit chatting with people.
Interacting with things like cactus would be a nice way to get some food also.
- Overall this update made the game unfriendly for me, and its the first update I want to complain on. I think thats all, thanks for your time
