On The Pulse of Rust


Bradley improvements, Geiger art, and more.

Recommended Posts


4:20pm EST - It’s a fresh week for Rust development and we’re seeing some improvements to the Bradley along with forward progress on some long awaited items...


Bradley improvements

After adding the Bradley APC last week, Helk is making some tweaks to the new NPC and its environment. In an effort to reduce chances of getting stuck, he made it so the Bradley no longer turns 180 degrees on a straightaway. Also, a bunch of props (cones and boxes) around the launch site have been removed in the interest of not blocking Bradley. Finally, some tweaks have been made the the path it follows, further improving reliability.


Geiger counter art ready

The materials, world models, textures, and more have been committed for the Geiger Counter. This new item won’t necessarily be seen in game this week as the functionality still needs to be implemented. That said, the artwork being complete is a big step towards it being added.

CH-47 Chinook work

There has been some forward progress on a future server event: The Chinook. As mentioned on the roadmap, this periodic event will involve a CH-47 Chinook helicopter dropping a crate in a radtown - similar to an airdrop. Mihn has committed some gibs and effects for the CH-47. We don’t yet have any visuals for this event, but stay tuned in the coming weeks for updates as this progresses.

Other stuff

  • Finishing touches on the new smalluments (super market and gas station). Looking like these will be in for the forced wipe!
  • Progress on the AI NPC pathfinding
  • Optimizations to some textures
  • More performance optimizations with garbage collects, etc.
  • Progress on a ‘new arms’ branch

Server wipe note

Given there are 5 Thursdays this month - and therefore 5 updates - our biweekly servers have a slightly different wipe schedule over the coming week. All biweekly wipe servers (mediums, hapis, staging, etc) will wipe this Thursday (EU servers at 5pm BST and US servers when the update hits). All these servers will then have 1 week prior to the next (forced) wipe on September 7th.
