These are some of the things that bug me about rust, and many other games, and solutions in my mind, to what you could do:
- We have geiger counter no pants?
I understand the whole naked thing, but i feel, that logically, geiger counters shoudnt be somthing you spawn with…
After all, you would not be able to make it yourself from metal and such, after all: ‘The radiation sensing element is an inert gas-filled Geiger-Müller tube (usually containing helium, neon, or argon with halogens added)’
A solution would be to have it as a object made from found parts and materials, like scavanged diodes, scavanged transistors from old radios etc, the Geiger-Müller tube itself would likely be very rare and hard to find.
- Nobody knows how to metal doors?
Seriously, how hard would it be to make a metal door, i know i could come up with how to make one, the same for many other things
like pickaxes, armor etc etc.
Why don’t we have a system where you have to make the recipies by putting materials into a GUI that would logically go together, and if you find out a proper,
logical crafting solution, it gets added to a crafting list for your player.
However more complex items should need blueprints like things such as electrical items and complex traps ( beyond beartraps and tripwires ).
- Starting with the same stuff.
why would everyone have the same stuff on spawning, why not have some standard stuff, and chances of random items extra being on you at spawn, this could help with the Geiger-Müller tube issue
and also help bring in more varied items. However, i suppose it would mean that many fresh-spawned players would be hunted specificly for these items then…
From what i have found, after dieing of starvation and spending many hours wondering around the map, i still rarely ever see any animal, and when i do, its usually a bear or wolf
Neither of these 2 can be killed when you spawn, and to make a weapon to allow you to kill them for the meat, you would need a furnace, and to make the furnace, you need animal fat… as a result, its a loop.
I think it would be good if more non-violent animals spawned around the map, to allow new spawners to start up easier.
After all this is my personal experiance of finding food / animals, i dont know how everyone else’s luck is.
These are just my thoughts and my opinions, i figured i shall drop them here for you.
I do understand that garry will likely not change his opinions, but mabye, if he reads this, he may think an idea or 2 of mine is actually a good one (unlikely)
One thing i do wish, is should anyone just rate dumb, is that they explain or make a post as to why this post is dumb so i can rate their post dumb as revenge! (actually its so i know why the hell it is dumb to voice your own opinions)
