Howdy everyone, I’ve pretty recently gotten Rust and have explored a lot, and done a lot in the game, and I think there are some things that should be added. I know the game is in Alpha, so I won’t correct or say how things are bad, but these are just some ideas that I think should be seen in future updates.
1- Swords! I’m getting tired of running around trying to kill someone with a hatchet and pickaxe, it’s stupid, and you get killed sooo easily. I think swords should be added into the game and have special melee combat perks that encourages melee fighting instead of running around mowing down people with m4s. A few swords that could be implemented are: Katana, Hunting Knife, machete, homemade knife, and other more modern weapons.
2- Gun tweaking- Being stranded on a desolate island, with only a rock to survive and very raw resources to build and contruct with, so I don’t think that the full auto weapons (M4 and MP5) should be that easily built. The Full auto weapons should have a new method of being crafted, I’m not completely sure what that method would be, but I just wanted to put this out there for sudjestions.
3-Wolf taming- Wolves should be able to be tamed and used to hunt and guard your home. It would also be cool to be able to work on your dog and teach him new hunting tricks and fighting technics to make him stronger.
4-Stone buildings- I’ve seen many posts about use stone to build a fort, instead of metal or wood, and I’m pretty sure that Garry and his team are already adding that, but I’m not sure.
5-Compound bows and Crossbows- Compound bows should be added as a stronger variant of the hunting bow that has mod slots for sights, a quiver that works as an ammo clip like for weapons so you don’t have to carry those arrows in your inventory. The crossbow should also be added also as a step up from the hunting bow that is more stable and easier to aim, but still uses arrows (or bolts if you wanna add new ammo for it).
6- Bipods or reduced gun sway while crouching- That about sums this one up
7-Motorcycle/cars- I know this is a huge leap out of a survival scenario, but if there really was an apocolypse in real life I’m pretty sure there would be some cars or other vehicles laying around that just need a tune up and some engine/battery work, and a lot of modern day people who own vehicles more than likely know a thing or two about tune-ups or fixing it, so it wouldn’t be like they were building a space shuttle or anything that advanced. Also, the cars shouldn’t be able to be crafted, and should have a few setbacks, like not being able to shoot while driving, and not very agile. Plus, they would have to be pretty loud.
Another thing is that there is a road, not only is it a good way to know where you are, it could also be use for the cars.
8-Horses- They would work a lot like cars, but you would have to tame them like wolves.
9-farms- After you have a nice setup it would be nice to be able to grow your food at home instead of having to hunt.
10-Seasons- I know, this would be a pretty huge update, but it would be sweet if the game had a season cycle, a lot like the day and night cycle, but a lot more gradual and slower. In Winter the cold would be constant even at day time and it would snow some times, in spring crops (if that was added also) would grow 2x as fast and there would be more rain, summer would be the same, but with less rainfall, then would come fall which will have more cold time around evening-morning and a little bit of snow.
