Let's play Rust
So is it like S.T.A.L.K.E.R or something, but with more focus on resource gathering?
EDIT: If I had just read the FP Post, I would’ve had an answer to that.
Anyway, it looks interesting.
Alright, after playing it a bit, it’s turned out to be quite intriguing, although people do tend to murder you if they can. It is by no means smooth, so combat can be hard.
Basically, you start off with a couple of medkits, a few flares, and a hatchet in your inventory. Press I to open your inventory and drag your hatchet into whatever slot you want.
From there, you basically just hit things with your hatchet. Trees, rocks, zombies, people. Ignore the fact that rocks bleed when you hit them.
Then you gather up resources and do whatever. You can craft walls and doors and ramps fairly easily. You can also make guns and cars.
There are also blueprints. You can use these to learn new recipes, as one would expect.
Oh, and there is radiation. Fairly simple: If you hear a ticking noise, you’re absorbing radiation. It wears off after a while, or you can use anti-radiation pills.
Another update. Garry visited the server, was immediately mobbed by rabid fans.
From what I can see, you may have issues if you run the game through Firefox, so use Chrome instead.
Also, when building structures, note that walls are currently bugged and can be walked through in some places. Also, people can access containers through walls. So basically, be careful how you build your base, otherwise people will steal your stuff.
These online survival games sure sound fun in theory but when put into practice they turn into absolute murderfests. Even though DayZ is a boring and unplayable piece of shit it’s the perfect example of what I mean.
Seems fun except that every time I tried to build a hut I get killed
giving the player a hatchet from spawn is a big mistake in this game.
So good good luck have fun
