Hello! I have been following this forum for a while, but i decided to register now to make a suggestion. I know that there is 1 thread about this already, but i decided to make a new one that is a bit different and hopefully gets some more attention.
I think there pretty many people who like Rust, like me, but can’t really play it so regularly as some other players and clans, because we have to go to work/school. That means we don’t necessarily have enough time to build a good enough base to protect ourselves from raiding, and gear up as well as some other players.
So what i’d suggest, is an offline/single player mode, similar to minecraft’s offline mode, that new players could learn the basics and build different bases and see which would be easiest way to do different things, and learn some locations while exploring the map. I don’t think it would cause any harm to any online players, or take too much time to add to the game, but it would make this game much more entertaining for us who don’t have much time or good enough pc’s to run this game competitively.
You could have the same commands as server admins, and you could do anything you want, with no fear of getting raided or server wipe. There should be a save system for the offline mode too, so your base stays there after quitting too. Let me know what you think and thank you for taking the time to read this!
Edit: I think a local server would be great too.
