Let’s just admit it.
Rust needs to have some kind of group system. I think these should be called tribes as it keeps with the cavemanish feel of the game. You would be able to set up your own tribe, perhaps it would need some requirements so new people don’t just randomly make tribes that only have them in it. People could then join your tribe but they would need to be invited. You would be allowed to set door permissions so that you could make it say “Tribe members only.” They could also perhaps incorporate some kind of tribe ranking system so that you could allow only certain ranks into areas of your base.
It would also help with what one of the most neglected features of rust, which is the ability to make your own little settlements with different people and all live and work together which I very rarely see.
Just an idea, tell me what you think.
