Twelve approvals this week, two of them for the Charitable Rust event. All proceeds from the sale of the Relief Crate or the Charitable Hoodie go to Direct Relief, a charitable organization dedicated to improving the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergency situations.
This week also sees the introduction of Python skins, and we've got two approvals there. Our favorite remains the Toothed Sword, by Badtrip.
Our favorite pick in the top ten this week, Badtrip's Toothed Sword won approval so now you'll have a fine primitive weapon skin to see you through the early stages of the game in the next bp wipe, which may be next month.
Some kind of fish or reptile teeth run up the length of the blade, while a human jawbone with teeth forms the grip. Three Badtrip mini skulls are on the hand guard. Best used with bone armor, or no clothes at all.
The first skin of the newly released Python mesh is the Devourer by famed workshop artist Milho Frito. Stylized flames lick the barrel and a tiny flre symbol is stamped on the grip, so we figure the "Devourer" in question is fire, not some kind of monster or cannibal.
All Milho Frito skins are technically excellent, but the mix of flames and construction safety lines is a bit odd. but making sense aside, it's a strong first entry for the new mesh.
The second python release we have is Phantom, by Shedmon. It's a fancy high powered revolver, black and gold in delicate filigree with a smooth polished wood grip. Highly popular in the workshop, the gun does not have the subtle technical touches Milho Frito deploys. It's also a newer and cleaner weapon, but we daresay quite a bit sexier than the the Devourer. Gun 'em down in style.
Shedmon's second approval this week is the Frost hammer, a beautiful blue magic ice hammer to fix up your base. Although a tad unrealistic, it's creative and well detailed, and we're sure many people will love it, especially since pretty much everyone needs to use a hammer throughout all phases of the game.
If you look closely, the hammer is capped in blue ice and held in place with metal bands and rope. the center is wood, and the handle is bound in twisting leather. In the real world, that ice would shatter to dust in just a few swings, but this is a video game, so your skin is safe. Melt-proof, too!
Art Deco arrives in Rust at last! A sheet metal door with stylized steampunk gears running down the edges and a big Captain Nemo round window right in the front. Install it in your "clean" upscale tech base, or put it on your water base and pretend you're in a submarine.
xInferno has been working on versions of this door for some time, but only now won approval. The style is not for everyone, but we think some people will like it quite a bit. And those who don't are welcome to blow it off its hinges and charge inside to settle the matter.
And back to primitive, La Crampe offers an elegant white bone and blonde wood crossbow, which goes surprisingly well with the Toothed Sword, even though they are by two different artists. The crosspiece is the softened long thigh bone of some large animal, and the fore grip is clad in its vertebrae. A few more bones have been applied to the body and shoulder brace with care and attention--this savage loves his weapon!
Strong detail and a nice mix of color make this a great crossbow skin. If you like the style, be sure and check out the artist's workshop. La Crampe has many approvals along these lines, and all past skins are still available in the Steam Market.
La Crampe also scored a second approval with the excellent Ancient World Rock. It's a fossil encrusted chunk of rock with a nearly perfect rock texture, and the fossils are fun to look at. You'll wake up with your rock a lot in this game, so let your rock console you while you crawl back out of the muck.
Here's a scruffy sheet metal door to slap on a building to make it look even more run down and unraidworthy than it already is. Its junkyard collection of scrap, chain link fencing, poorly plugged holes and re-recycled materials is sure to bring down property values in your neighborhood, and drive would be raiders to more upscale venues.
Note that from a distance the door can appear to be an armored door because of the small window / view slot at the top of the door.
After suffering a rejection on first submission for being too colorful, Krovv turned the day-glo dial down and resubmitted, winning approval on the second try.
The double trouble uses a pair of tempered motorbike mufflers as gun barrels with a rough wood grip and stock bound in plastic and leather. It's primitive, makeshift and Rusty, a door camper's constant companion.
