April brings one more fascinating replace to brutal (and brutally well-liked) survival recreation Rust. Now you’ll be able to get pleasure from new methods to speak with no mic within the temporary seconds earlier than somebody shoots you within the face. And for gamblers, there’s an thrilling new solution to lose scrap steel within the on line casino. Within the temporary seconds earlier than somebody shoots you. Within the face.
New gestures together with waving, pointing, thumbs-up, and an arguably sarcastic clap have been added to Rust, which will be accessed from a radial menu and look fairly good each in third and first-person views. These gestures do not unequip your weapon and will be canceled mid-gesture, making them much less dangerous to make use of in dicey conditions, which in my expertise with Rust is each state of affairs ever.
“Enjoyable reality: these gestures are all left-handed as a result of they had been initially meant for use whereas holding the weapon on the similar time (which is usually in the appropriate hand), nonetheless we felt it restricted our future choices for gestures—clapping with one hand is difficult,” reads the Rust devblog.
“As we felt that the standard of the legacy gestures weren’t as much as scratch in comparison with these new animations, we have made the choice to take away help for enjoying the previous gestures. You possibly can nonetheless nonetheless bind these new gestures utilizing the identical instructions/keybinds in the event you do not wish to use the gesture wheel.”
Gestures are cool, particularly for gamers who do not or cannot use a mic, in order that’s a welcome addition, however I am personally excited to see the addition of poker tables for the on line casino. Lastly, a correct solution to lose every little thing I’ve in Rust: Texas maintain ’em.
You possibly can sit down on the poker desk (which will be configured for 2 to 6 gamers) by depositing no less than 100 scrap steel. Then relax and see in the event you can bluff your solution to victory. As a poker-enjoyer, this makes me wish to play Rust greater than anything I’ve seen added to the sport in years, and the interface seems to be good and simple to make use of.
Slot machines, which had been added lately, have undergone just a few adjustments as nicely, with fewer doable rewards although “the prospect of getting a correct payout (three matching symbols) needs to be a lot larger than earlier than. The vast majority of scrap paid out final month was through the wildcard symbols which felt a bit unexciting,” it says on the devblog.
Together with the gestures and new playing choices, some server optimizations have additionally trickled in with the patch:
- Floating junkpiles will not course of buoyancy if no gamers are close by
- Higher balanced server load when numerous turrets are scanning for targets
- Upgraded SQLite and eliminated numerous GC allocations within the connector code
- Replace Facepunch.Steamworks with buffer pooling for swnet (Steam Networking solely)
- Rewrite NetWrite to have much less CPU overhead
- Add caching to TechTreeData because it may trigger brief CPU spikes on the server
- Removed some small GC allocations that occurred each body
There’s far more to the replace, together with the choice to disable blood, a discount of the safezone hostility timer (from 30 minutes all the best way down to 5 minutes), and a few hitbox and recoil tweaks. An Easter egg searching occasion can even pop off about as soon as a day for the subsequent week, and the gamers who discover probably the most eggs will get some particular loot-filled eggs as a reward. There are additionally just a few Easter-themed objects within the Rust retailer. You possibly can learn the total patch notes right here.
