We’re in a new month, which means a new Rust update. There are some pretty interesting things with the June Rust update, but perhaps the weirdest thing is that the Rust + app now supports IFTTT, which means you can basically connect the brutal survival game to some real-life services , smart home apps and devices.
IFTTT (If This, Then That) is a software platform that connects different applications, devices and systems to each other. For example, an IFTTT applet may allow you to automatically add a song to your Spotify playlist whenever you take a look at a song on YouTube. Or, you can use it to send you text when your weather app notices it's raining. Shit like that. If there are two things that support IFTTT, they can be connected to each other for some automation.
With the Rust + app you can keep tabs on the Rust server when you're not playing, but now that it supports IFTTT you can integrate the app with other apps and devices. Do you want an alarm to go off or house lights to flash when someone is attacking your base? Do you want to send a tweet automatically when you have been killed on Rust so that your followers know who did it? Want to order something that goes to Dominos Pizza at the touch of a button? You can already do all these pretty ridiculous things, as long as everything in question supports IFTTT.
However, for the average Rust player, there are some more grounded changes to the June update. A new contact list system will help you better track the other players you meet, allow you to mark them as likeable or unfriendly, and even put a mark on their heads (while you watch them). through binoculars) to show if they have already done so previously. it's been bad with you. It is part of a "rudimentary reputation system" that is being worked on, to make it easier for friendly players to locate players who tend to kill indiscriminately in plain sight.
"As for most hard-boiled players that kill everyone in plain sight anyway, you can also pretend that this system doesn't exist because it won't affect you," read the devblog post. "However, for those who are less inclined to destroy and kill all living things that pass by, this system can help you find players with similar ideas to form a team!"
If possible. The June update also makes the animals have a nice makeover, with new models, nicer skin, and removes the "redundant bones" of some animals for lower performance success. I feel bad that they have lost bones, but the animals definitely look so much better now. Just look at that big bear!
What else? If you enjoy making cinematic videos of your Rust feats, some more advanced features have been added to the demo system, including an erasable timeline and a plan manager. "You can now create and manage 'shots' in demos, which are individual camera motion recordings, as well as properties such as FOV and DOF. These shots can be played back in sync with the demo scene."
There are also some improvements in quality of life, such as the ability to color-code cables and hoses, an AI review to accompany new luxury animals, procedural generation modifications, and some other probabilities and purposes. There are no new Twitch drops this month, though they will resume in July.
