    Quality of Life, woah!


    12:00am EST - Happy Turkey Day to you all! The team is cranking on some significant quality of life changes for the December 1st update and forced wipe. 

    Our update preview stream goes live at 1pm EST (might be a short one today, I have turkey to eat!). Follow @Rustafied for news throughout the week.


    Holy QoL!

    The other week Facepunch asked the community for changes they’d like to see in the game. Now, they are absolutely cranking on QoL updates to the game. Here is a list of the various changes we’re seeing so far. We’ll be back next week with some more details.

    • Despawn time of many items upped to 60 minutes

    • Fixed ability to hit wall in weakspot when a floor or stairs is in the way

    • Prevent hitting weakspot of the exposed side of a wall when a roof is attached to it (regressed when fixing wall weakspot being blocked by floors)


    General QoL

    • External walls and gates can now be rotated 90° instead of 180° before deployment

    • WIP replacing modular car key locks with code locks

    • Removed condition from most electrical entities so they stack easily when picked up (doesn't apply to batteries, solar panels, windmills, turrets, etc)

    • Garage door no longer requires a hammer to be equipped to be picked up, still requires building auth and lock removed - In line with other doors

    • Rowboat now dismounts the player if it's inverted, even if not clipping into anything. Don't allow initially mounting a boat if it's flipped

    • Allow rotation of roofs blocks before placement

    • Keep authorize UI open when authorizing players on a turret

    • Changed building blocked message to tell the player when they are trying to build on a building they don't own the TC on

    • Added ability to recolor existing wires in world by pressing "R" on input / output of wire, will apply selected color

    • Can right click armor into locker and have it go to first free row (will not go into a row if it conflicts with other armor in the row)

    • Show "X days" of upkeep after 72 hours (rather than > 72 hrs)

    • Add radial option to Harvest/Clone/Clear all plants in a planter. Will apply that action to all valid plants in the planter eg, if 2 out of 9 plants are harvestable using Harvest All will only affect those 2 plants. The option will only appear if at least one other plant in the planter is at the same stage as the plant being looked at

    • Add a different, slightly darker material to the Hemp ripe stage so it looks different to Fruiting

    • Made custom icons for each type of berry clone to better differentiate each color

    • The flashlight held entity can now be toggled on/off (uses light toggle key like light attachment)

    • Sam site can passthrough power (use it to detect destroyed sam sites not power multiple) 

    • Stone spear is cheaper to craft. Reduce stone spear crafting time

    • Removed chair static from Tunnel Dwelling E - Fixes chairs leaking to world origin
