NEW Musical instruments! All you need to know about the DLC | Rust update 22nd November 2019

Greetings survivors and friends, Shadowfrax
here bringing you all the noteworthy news from this week’s Rust development. And first, as a prelude to the debut of Rust’s
first paid DLC, we are currently able to craft all 10 – count ’em – of the new musical
instruments for free over on staging, which should give us time to key up and guitar act
together before they splash down officially on the 5th of December. You can wishlist the DLC right now on Steam
in advance – link below – and the whole ensemble will set you back $10, although there
will be an initial discount off of that.. OK you say, that’s all well and good, but
I’m not a roleplayer.. Well didn’t you hear? Rust is a roleplaying game now? Look, Playstation
said so.. It’s there in.. blue and white.. But more about that in a moment.. Our 10 new audio warfare devices and their
crafting costs are as follows: In the brass and woodwind section we have
the Sousaphone, which costs 100 frags, The Plumber’s trumpet at 75, And the Pan flute
which costs 20 frags + 5 cloth. On strings there’s the Jerry can guitar at 25 wood +
50 frags, the Shovel bass at 50 wood + 75 frags, and the Wheelbarrow piano which will
set you back the most at 200 wood + 100 frags. Lastly in percussion we have the Cowbell which
costs 35 frags, the Canbourine at 25, the Junkyard drum kit for 200 wood + 100 frags,
and the Xylobone which needs 50 bones.. Which is about 4 per human skeleton if you think
about it, and that’s a cracking deal. As I say, you can currently craft them all
on staging and try to break them before the December 5th patch, after which they will
become DLC only.. However it has been confirmed in a recent blog that although ownership of
the DLC will be required to craft them, anyone who gets hold of one will be able to play
it.. So murdering a player for his cowbell is A O K. As far as playing them goes, the default note
bindings are to the numpad, with 1 through to 7 equating to A through to G, with numpad
plus giving access to sharps and pressing enter shifting everything up an octave for
that all important key change.. There’s also a UI display for some of the instruments which
shows your bindings in case you forget.. If you want you can bind further keys to include
sharps/flats and octave modifiers.. But if you want a far less unwieldy system, then
there is indeed MIDI support which can be switched on via the experimental tab.. Also note: The cowbell and canbourine are
controlled via mouse clicks.. And if you hold down the right mouse button on some of the
instruments you can play an inbuilt tune on them. Some other things to note are that the original
acoustic guitar we all know and love is slightly more expensive to craft now but has been switched
over to this note system too, although it will remain free to craft for everyone, because
after all some of the best music has been made by peasants. Now before you start fretting about the incoming
auditory onslaught and frantically searching Amazon for the best deal on a lifetime’s supply
of earplugs, you’ll be glad to know that there is in fact a separate volume slider which
will control how much you hear of all these.. phew.. If only everything in life had one
of those.. Oh, and you can pick up deployable instruments
such as the drum kit with your hammer, as long as you have tool cupboard auth, but sadly
you can’t put them inside the scrap heli, which is a shame as Ride of the Valkyries
sounds lovely on the old aunt Joanna.. A lot of work and fine tuning has clearly
gone into all of this, but what do you think and will you be splashing out on the DLC?
Let me know in the comments.. In other changes, as mentioned last week,
Garry did a load of work to let us see our leggies when we look down now, and this is
currently live on staging.. There is a censorship cube included if you want, and if you’d like
to see the hellishly deformed character model that makes all this possible.. which you should
never actually have to see, then head on over to Garry’s blog for a full run down..
Link in the description. Something else he’s been up to is adding a
whole barrel full of admin Quality of life improvements.. including some new convars,
such as admintime, to make it always daytime for admins regardless of what others are seeing..
killplayer which allows them to murder a player of their choice.. Ouch.. some changes to mute
commands.. and some better info when players join, are kicked or the server restarts..
And I’ll stick all the details of these in the description for you.. In optimisation, there is ongoing work on
something called the world grid and world streaming, which in a nutshell I’m told optimises
the amount of far-away objects that exist in the world at any given time, which reduces
RAM usage by around 400MB and makes the physics system a fair bit faster, leading to higher
fps overall.. At least that’s the hope, so we’ll see how it goes.. There were some more fixes to horse movement,
and tree markers so they should no longer jump to the other side of the trunk.. (that’s
markers not horses) Also other changes to prevent being able to
see through water when jumping or using free look on a boat.. plus work to improve hair
meshes and of course the usual longer term work on HDRP and vehicles, both of which we
are still waiting for.. But stay subscribed and tuned in here as I’ll bring you more info
on these as soon as I get it.. Lastly, judging by your comments and likes,
most of you are feeling positive about the recently announced console version.. and although
many of your burning questions are yet to be answered officially.. Some details have
dribbled out, most notably that PS4 players will be able to rent their own servers.. And
I’m sure the other gaps in our knowledge will be plugged before too long.. Why not leave me a comment with the questions
you want answered most about the console version down below.. Don’t forget, I stream on Twitch 3 times a
week, including Fridays so follow the link an join me there now. If you can support this channel on my Patreon
and help me to keep functioning that would be most appreciated.. Big props to those who
are doing so already, you can also join me on Twitter, Facebook, Discord and my Steeeeam
group to keep up to date, and I shall catch you all soon, but in the meantime, keep calm
and stay Rusty, Cheerio.

  68. Andrew Paino says:

    Why did they call it an RPG? This game takes real men to play

  69. Bboy Nocturnal says:

    Another great an informative video as always! Thanks 🙂

  70. OmegaKai says:

    With the release of console, will it be Cross platform? i haven't seen anything about it yet

  71. MarshCreature says:

    Playing a wind instrument with a closed helmet = Comedy gold.

  72. Chris Pedrosa says:

    Ok now I’m a little more relieved to see that console can rent servers. I was worried that console was limited to vanilla rust only. Console commands is still something I’m worried that it might not be added but if they can at least at a separate section that similarly then it’s fine. My other worry it how aim assist will work because it can get a little controversial but I feel like no matter how much they add bows and other primitive none hit scan weapons will be hard to aim with.

  73. Mr. Dank says:

    "I've got a FEVER! And the only prescription, is more COWBELL!"

  74. Midgermis says:

    I have a question will rust for console be crossplay? And will there be crosshairs and aimassist for console

  75. Rookmations says:

    Dont worry, just put the piano down outside of the wall as the helicopter ride up and just forbid murdering players on instruments on your server and they will know when your coming…. 😉

  76. Taylor Bumgarden says:

    Release Date for Xbox ?

  78. Xavier Govindan says:


  79. Jay Pangelinan says:

    HEY SHADOWFRAX WILL THERE BE CROSS PLAY?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?

  80. rifter rifter says:

    Pretty stoked about the instruments, but I have 2 burning questions about console. 1) Will console players have aim assistance or something similar as console games usually do. 2) Will console players be playing with PC players.

  81. Preston Garvey says:

    Is there keyboard and mouse support planned for Rust on PS4?

  82. Sid says:

    I will probably never use it but that’s why imma spend 10 bucks on the dlc

  83. Michael Diaz says:

    Can't wait to play megolavania while door camping

  84. Carter Lam says:

    Will Xbox be able to cross play with pc?

  85. Horus Thelemite says:

  90. Megastatix says:

  91. Chewyowie91 says:

  97. Crown & Coke says:

    The progressions of this game are pushing me further away from the game I once loved

  98. [Ernestas] says:
