We’re in a brand new month, which suggests a brand new Rust replace. There’s some fairly attention-grabbing stuff happening with Rust’s June replace, however possibly the weirdest is the Rust+ app now helps IFTTT—which suggests you can primarily wire up the brutal survival recreation to some real-life providers, apps, and sensible house units.
IFTTT (If This, Then That) is a software program platform that connects totally different apps, units, and methods to 1 one other. For occasion, an IFTTT applet may let you robotically add a music to your Spotify playlist every time you give a thumbs-up to a music on YouTube. Or, you can use it to ship you a textual content when your climate app notices it should rain. Shit like that. If there are two issues that each assist IFTTT, they can be related to one another to carry out some little bit of automation.
With the Rust+ app you can already maintain tabs on your Rust server when you’re not really taking part in, however now that it helps IFTTT you can combine the app with different apps and units. Want an alarm to go off or your lights at house to blink when somebody is raiding your base? Want to robotically ship a tweet when you’ve been killed in Rust so your followers know who did it? Want to order one thing vaguely resembling pizza from Dominos by pushing a button within the recreation? You can now do all these pretty ridiculous issues, supplied every thing concerned helps IFTTT.
For the common Rust participant, nevertheless, there are some extra grounded modifications within the June replace. A brand new contact record system will assist you maintain higher monitor of the opposite gamers you encounter, let you flag them as pleasant or unfriendly, and even place a mark above their heads (whereas taking a look at them via binoculars) that reveals in the event that they’ve beforehand been imply to you. It’s a part of a “rudimentary reputation system” that is being labored on, to make it simpler for pleasant gamers to identify the gamers who are likely to indiscriminately kill on sight.
“As for the majority of hardcore rust players who kill everyone on sight anyway, you may as well pretend this system does not exist as it will not affect you,” reads the devblog submit. “However, for those less inclined to destroy and kill every living thing that passes in front of them, this system might help you find some like-minded players to team up with!”
Yeah, possibly. The June replace additionally offers animals a pleasant makeover, with new fashions, nicer fur, and removes some animals’ “redundant bones” for much less of a efficiency hit. I really feel unhealthy they misplaced bones, however the animals positively do look lots nicer now. Just have a look at that huge ol’ bear!
What else? If you like making cinematic movies of your Rust exploits, some extra superior options have been added to the demo system, together with a scrubbable timeline and a shot supervisor. “You can now create and manage ‘shots’ within demos, which are individual recordings of camera motion as well as properties such as FOV and DOF. These shots can then be played back in-sync with the demo scene.”
There are some high quality of life enhancements too, like the power to paint code your wires and hoses, an AI overhaul to associate with the flowery new animals, procedural era tweaks, and some different odds and ends. No new Twitch drops this month, nevertheless, although they’re going to resume in July.
Here are the complete patch notes, and a bounce to the beautiful new animals.
