Finally the waiting time is over, NorthernRust is back with the most biggest modifications we have ever done ! Special thx goes this time to my son @4g3v for all the great coding works and to @DreTaX for the nice support and for bring this game back to life Also i want to say -Thank You- to my whole staff especially to @jyellow for always testing out a lot of stuff with me and @War for always be active in discord and for taking care about the players, THANK YOU GUYS ! A big THANKS goes also to all the players which are waiting their asses off for our release, but i promise all of you that the waiting time was worth it ! I need to say SORRY for the long waiting time, but this time we wanted that all runs perfect even if u have a "Stoneage" Computer, i did all graphic works and 3d models by my own, so we don´t use and third party stuff, in this way i can guarantee you all the best fps and gameplay which we ever provided Now back to the roots
The changes of Devlog No.IV PLS take few mins and READ the whole devlog !!! The Metro We added the metro ! Why ? Because i am tired to see the good old rust map everyday, in the past we added the "Sewer" because i was bored about the rust legacy map, and now i thought it´s time to bring some new again, and voila , the Metro was born ! So in the metro u can do really good pvp, there are a lot places to hide and to take cover. Also u can explore huge areas , trains , rooms, and also ducts. Because of our new download system and the way we optimize our 3d models it is possible to bring u HUGE new areas and maps without any lags ! The metro is also great for collecting a lot of loot. You can find eastereggs too .
The Turrets As you was able to see in the videos, we added fully working turrets too ! You can find all infos about them in #turret-info . Its a great addition for defending your bases if u are offline. Also we added some addons/extensions for the turrets, so in this way you can decide which turrets are the best for u. OFC u need to find the blueprints first ! Pls keep in mind that it is FORBIDDEN to place Turrets in the air, that means if u place a turret on a ceiling, and u destroy that ceiling so that the turret is in the air, we will ban you from server for 2 Weeks ! We can see who placed that turret, so dont even try ! I wont ban anyone, dont force me to ban pls
The KitClasses As u can see here #kitclasses we added a "RPG" like feature, where u can choose a Class on first kit usage. You will also have the classtag infront of your name, !!! KEEP IN MIND !!! that u will have this class which u choosed till next wipe, so be sure that u really want that class which u choosed !
The Performance Module We did some HUGE improvements on our performance module, so its possible even for players with a very old computer to reach high fps ! So if u have a old computer, dont worry and do the following: Hit the "Performance" button in the lower left corner with a LEFT click, then choose also with LEFT click FPS HIGH , GRASS OFF , Tree Distance , and FOG , in this way you will have the best performance on old systems.
Restricted Building Zones Special Thx goes to @Revezunds™ for sharing the zone radius of acw with me ! So on all rad towns we added different zones which prevent u from building in this areas, in this way we prevent lag spikes on the radtowns.
The new download system On first connect all needed stuff will be downloaded, aprox 20mb need to be downloaded, this will happen very fast, even if u have a slow connection, after the download, the stuff will be spawned. On the second connect our system will check if u have already downloaded the stuff, if so, the system only spawns the stuff without downloading stuff, so it will happen very fast.
Fixes in the sewer We fixed the bug that you was not able to loot some crates in the sewer, its fixed and working now
GatherRate We LOWERED the gatherrate a bit, so you will have 600 wood on each woodpile instead of 1000, i think this is a good balance for a megaloot server.
Normal wolves and bears We lowered the spawnrate of the wolves and bears a bit, this will bring us also more fps.
Rad Animals We added the most new stuff like turrets and turret addons to the RadAnimals, so kill a lot and u will earn a lot
The Shops We fixed a bug in the shops which lowered the fps, the shops are now smooth as fuck, also they are NO PVP zones ! Stuff like explosives and c4 are also now buyable !
Homes Count We lowered the count of homes which u can set to 3 now, it more fair and in this way we dont need to wipe after 5 days !
Discord Bot Commands We added our first bot to discord, there will be a lot of commands which u can use, which help us to answer the most questions about wipes and so on. I will show u all commands soon.
Banned Guys I unbanned the most guys, so take your chance and dont do shit!
So we did a lot of more changes and fixes but its too much to write it all down, as i can see the whole devlog is big as the bible already, rofl ! I wish u all a great time on the new NorthernRust, if u found some bugs, dont cry or get angry, just write it down on #bug-report and we will take care And now restart your clients and do what you are waiting so long for,....connect to NorthernRust
Love u all ! GreetZ GhosT
