Nineteen approvals this week, with Veys scooping up four for himself, and sharing one. Best skin of the week: the Oink SAP by SerQ, and an honorable mention for the Apocalypse Set by La Crampe.
First up we have Mishka's Salvation Door, the only thing standing between you and the bloodthirsty cannibals who infest this little island. It's a sheet metal door hastily reinforced with junk and metal scraps. You can clearly see the welds connecting the scraps to the door, and the reinforcement to the hinges.
While the Salvation door is meant to keep raiders out, the Wise door draws them in. Who can resist a wooden door, especially with a fancy drawing on it? Of course, this is exactly the sort of door that has a shotgun trap behind it, but most raiders won't think of that--they're coming for da loot!
The door is also good for players who just want something nice to look at, which is a little hard to come by in this game. The ruined works of Man are not a pretty sight. By Veys.
And speaking of traps, how about a new hammer for the trap maker? Someone has to do all the hard work making trap bases to catch the unwary greed-head, and they deserve a little credit. The hammer depicts a spider carved in soft wood, sitting in the middle of its web. Reinforcements around the head frame the spider.in crude metal bands, and there are finger gouges in the wood of the handle.
@Facepunch: Send more traps! Better yet, motion sensor video cameras so we can watch the comedy .By Veys.
The Apocalypse sure left a lot of trash behind. here's a collection of old world debris of unguessable vintage fossilized in rock We see screws, springs, rings, washers, bolts, and what we think are a few weapon parts as seen in the game.
The rock's a bit dark so people won't be able to tell what it is from a distance, but you certainly will. And skinning your rock may help you feel a little less impoverished when you first start out. By new Rust Workshop artist Mokyri.
OK, Die, please? This supremely rusty sword doesn't look like much, but you'd be surprised how many people you can kill with a sword, especially in crowded, chaotic situations. Just charge and start hacking away, and hope your sword doesn't shatter, or the handle tape slip off. Are your tetanus shots up to date? By Es'Kophan, another new artist in the workshop.
Here's a simple pair of white work gloves by new artist Jesin. They're white, fingerless (of course) and quite grubby with a blue dot pattern on the palms and a rocket ship emblem on the back.
Although they are named Space Rocket Gloves, they are NOT part of the Space Rocket armor and mask set by Veys. They were made independently, but we must admit they DO fit nicely with the set.
Pried from the delicate heat shielding of mankind's greatest achievement, this tough space-aged material serves a new purpose we don't think its designer anticipated. Given the heat cracks and blistering, it's entirely possible this piece was actually in service in space until it wound up on the chest of some smelly, post modern savage.
The chest plate is the first piece of the Space Rocket set by Veys. It includes the chest plate and face mask, and maybe also the gloves and Rocket Factory Crew Hoodie, depending how you view it.
This is the armored mask that goes with the Space Rocket Chest Plate by Veys. Note that the gloves of the same name are not by the same artist and not actually part of the set, although they do go well with the set.
Also note that the store image seems to be a different image than the workshop image--we don't see the tinfoil around the eye in the store version.
These differences noted, this is a pretty creative effort to mark the arrival of the new Rocket Factory dungeon in the game. We can just imagine spear toting savages prying pieces off rockets to fashion them into armor and jewelry.
A post-apocalyptic hatchet by Andrey with a rubberized grip and steel head stamped with...The lumberjack logo? Base raiders' union? We dunno.
But we do know it's a highly realistic wood and head splitting tool with a perfect dusting of rust and dirt. And it's tough, black and yellow colors make you look like a real man.
The Forest Guardian Revolver by Badtrip features a subtle forest color scheme and patterns. The grip is wrapped in camouflage cloth which is stapled to the wood, and there's a nice groove grid stamped into the back of the gun. The steel cylinder is heavy and businesslike, and the iron parts dull and rusty.
New rust artist SerQ won an approval with the Oink SAP, an aggressively cute and weird semi-auto pistol depicting a fanged pig drawn to the contours of the gun.
SerQ is a well-followed artist for other games, most notably CS:GO, and the Rust workshop is lucky to have attracted his attention. If this gun is any indication, we have a lot to look forward to in the coming months.
This desert brown AK by El Fideo Rubio features a pair of Emperor scorpions wrapped round the body of the weapon poised to scuttle from cover and deliver a fatal sting. The gun is quite scratched and battered, with gouged wood and thin cloth wrappings. Good choice of color, and good work on the fading paint near the end of the barrel.
You've got to admire the modern practicality and can do spirit of post-apocalyptic Man. Here we have the fossilized tooth of some long extinct dinosaur, miraculously preserved through millions of years to finally achieve its destiny: banging open trash barrels until pounded to rubble in a few short hours.
The cloth wrapping and wood handle of this stone hatchet by Brajkula are actually more interesting than the fossil head itself, with fine leather wrappings and bright brassy fittings. Most players don't use stone hatchets for long, of course, but it will look good for the time that you do.
Next up we have the Apocalypse set by La Crampe. It's a road sign armor set redesigned as a macabre armored bone display, as though a witch doctor soaked skeletal bones in some awful chemical soup to soften and shrink them, then applied the result to scavenged metal plates.
There's a fantastic level of detail here, the bones are all carefully tied to the metal plates, and there's bits of chain mail, brass stars, and leather straps all through the skin. We also like the positioning of the skull and jaw bones--they've got a certain...charm to them.
A collaborative effort by AlmaTadema and Veys produced this hoodie, which is not part of the Space Rocket set, but related in a way. The hoodie looks like a geeky Skunkworks or defense contractor jacket--the only thing missing is a slide rule and radiation badge.
It's well designed and a little too clean for our taste, but the logo on the back looks pretty rough. Plenty of spacey looking patches and a back supporter belt to help you lift machine parts and crates of solid rocket fuel.
