Server Updated!

Server Updated!

As usual on Thursdays, the server has been patched and it’s back up and running. This was not a wipe, just an update.

Below you can find a list of the changes to Rust this week. For me, the improvement highlight is that flares were added to Search lights, helicopter, flash lights and laser sights. This not only makes players more visible when they use them, but it blinds other players a bit. Should be very nice.

New Site Design!

New Site Design!

I’ve been working on a new site design quietly behind the scenes – shh! Don’t tell anyone.

Anyway, between you and I (/leaning in) it’s mostly done! πŸ™‚

There’s a number of things I still have to do, but it’s a giant leap better than the old one in many ways.

  • Menu with easy to find information
  • Ability to post information like this
  • At some point allow commenting on posted information
  • More aesthetically pleasing
  • and so much more…

I hope you all find it useful and feel it’s an improvement as well! πŸ™‚
