    Rust - Halloween 2021 Darkness Falls

    Facepunch has delivered its Halloween patch and Frankenstein never disappoints! Yes, you can craft your own Frankenstein which will automatically defend you, follow you around, and help you attack your enemies.

    Basically, you assemble a head, torso and legs (to which there are several versions) on a Frankenstein table and you can bring your new Franky to life. They’ve included a new in-game controls menu to provide players with a graphical method to order your new ‘pet’ around.

    Seems like a great opportunity to potentially create a sophisticated pet plugin now that there’s a fancy GUI.

    They’ve also added some new items to the game specific to Halloween:

    • Skull Rock
    • Carvable Pumpkin

    Certainly the Frankenstein addition provides plugin developers with a solid backdrop for controlling AI driven animals and NPCs. The GUI is a great addition that will make plugins more professional so as not to require players laboring through commands which can be quite frustrating and detract from the fun of the game.

    I can envision a major extension of the popular pet plugin or an NPC gang plugin that allow players to have groups of NPCs that will follow, protect and attack.

    What ideas do you have for plugins using these additions?

    Stay well and keep flinging code 🙂
