Facepunch Studios has revealed the Boat Vendor update for Rust, the popular sandbox survival game for PC. Launching at 7pm BST 03.09.2020, the update will introduce an entirely new series of locations within the map: fishing villages, featuring a brand-new range of nautical traversal options and items. Players will also be able to benefit from a range of improvements made to farming systems as well as the addition of the Storage Monitor, a brand-new item compatible with Rust+, the official companion app for Rust.
For the full list of changes, optimisations and improvements, including gibbing improvements on server-load, see the blog today at 7pm BST.
New Location – Fishing Villages
Players who search along the coastline will find that multiple Fishing Villages have been to the map. Set to be expanded upon in future updates, and each varying in size, they’ll allow players to purchase boats and other traversal options like the kayak, as well as items that can only be found within Fishing Villages, such as scuba diving gear.
Boats will no longer procedurally spawn along the beach and will now only be available from the Boat vendor found within each Fishing Village (250 Scrap for the rowboat and 400 Scrap for the RHIB).
Fishing villages are safe zones and hostile action will result in a swift death.
New Traversal Option – The Kayak
The Kayak and Paddle are two new craftable items that will allow players to take to the seas in a more primitive fashion. Once crafted the Kayak can be placed in the water, players can use a Paddle to move once inside and will need to alternate between LMB and RMB clicks to travel accordingly (just like a real kayak!), pressing S will let players paddle backwards, as well as slow down.
The Paddle is a new weapon that you will need to craft in order to operate the Kayak. While not on the Kayak you can also use the paddle as a melee weapon, including using it as a thrown weapon.
- Storage Monitor – The Storage Monitor is a new electric deployable which integrates with Rust+, the official companion app for Rust. Showing players how much upkeep they have left and their inventory items, it can be hooked up to traps and alarms as it can detect when items are added or removed and send out an electrical pulse in response!
Changes, Improvements and Bug Fixes
- Work Bench Pickup – Work Benches can now be picked up and moved. This is likely to impact gameplay in a variety of ways and we will be monitoring this in the coming weeks.
- Farming Improvements – A wide series of improvements have been made to the farming systems this month, supporting better server performance for larger farms, as well as making cold biome farms more viable. For the full list, see the latest blog update.
- Electrifying Existing Objects – The Searchlight and Reactive Target have now been electrified, with the Searchlight now using 10 units of power, rather than low-grade fuel. Reactive Targets now have four optional electrical connections, acting similarly to a pressure pad.
