12:00am EST - Another week in Rust development as we reach the halfway point for the month. Forward progress on blackjack, other improvements, and a bunch of hidden commits.
Note: This is not an actual picture of the Caboose or blackjack
More progress this week on the newest card game to enter Rust. Blackjack, which will be available on the Caboose train wagon, is a new card betting game for 1 or more people. No visuals yet on this or the Caboose in which it’ll exist as both projects are on the aux2 branch which is currently unavailable to players. We’ll keep you posted as more comes to light.
Item move fixes
Adding to the various storage buffs of late, the team is making a couple small quality of life improvements when it comes to moving items in certain instances. Specifically, right clicking items into horse storage has been fixed. Also, they’ve made moving items onto multiple incomplete stacks behave more consistent.
Some miscellaneous visual effect improvements are in the works. When it comes to flames, it seems as though some higher quality effects will be in play in the near future. Also, they added a second small, elevated, unshadowed light to soften the campfire close proximity lighting.
