For a simulation game that's by now showing its advanced age, Arma 3 still manages to gain headlines pretty frequently - although, not the kind its developers, Bohemia Interactive, would prefer. Arma 3 fake war footage has been showing up on social media and even TV news for years, often misleading viewers about some ongoing military conflict. In light of the latest round of faked Arma 3 footage that purports to depict action in the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Bohemia Interactive has published a statement and offered some tips on how to spot faked footage.

By: editor@pcgamesn.com
Earlier this year, video clips of the Russian invasion of Ukraine were seen by more than 110,000 people, and shared 25,000 times, before they were taken offline—because they weren't actually clips of the invasion at all. Instead they were gameplay videos taken from Bohemia Interactive's military sim Arma 3. It wasn't the first time this sort of thing has happened, and apparently Bohemia has had enough, because today it issued an explainer aimed at helping people tell the fakes from the real thing...

Rust News:

Someone must have sarcastically asked the developers of survival game Rust if "water was wet" at some point, and the answer seems to have been, "not wet enough!" Rust water is going to get wetter, in other words - although not in time for the next patch, which arrives in the main game on February 2. That update will, however, include a host of additional changes to some of the new industrial management elements that have appeared on the test servers. Read the rest of the story...

RUST GLOSSARY Our friends at Corrosion Hour have done quite a lot of guides in the past but this Rust Glossary is good if you're trying to be a cool dad in front of the kids. https://files.facepunch.com/errn/1b0911b1/glossary.png "To bridge the language gap between veteran players and those spawning in for the first time, we have compiled the RUST glossary of terms and phrases to lift the veil, so to speak." It's basically a decoder for all things Rust slang. Goes through abbreviations and callouts one would need to be in the know. Even if you are a Rust veteran it's rather amusing to go through some of these and see how we've evolved over the years. Check it out!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! From everyone at Facepunch, we'd all like to wish you a Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone! The Christmas Event is once again live! If you haven't been around for this before, here's what you can expect: Every once in a while you will hear the sound of jingle bells. Run outside and look for a gift! Two gifts are spawned per player, in a radius of about 40m from where you are standing. Run up and bash it open to receive your Christmas presents. They come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. If you have enough small presents stashed, you can "trade up" to a medium or large. The contents of each present vary, but you'll find a mix of resources, weapons, and candy. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20201218/xmas2020_giftboxes.jpg Once again, you will be able to find Santa hats and reindeer antlers, both of which can be worn and provide a decent amount of protection. There’s also a lickable candy cane club, and two types of stockings. If you hang a stocking inside your base when the jingle bells ring the stocking will fill up with loot. The larger stocking has a higher chance for better items and both last around 5-10 refills. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20201218/xmas2020_santasleigh.jpg The advent calendar is a craftable deployable available to everyone during the Christmas event. Once placed you can claim an in-game surprise once every in-real-life day. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20211215/xmas_adventcalendar.jpg The Christmas event ends on January 5th @ 19:00GMT Have fun! Gingerbread / Cake Mines Run, run fast as you can, the gingerbread men are coming! Gingerbread houses have mysteriously started appearing throughout the world, leading to an underground dungeon, smelling a little like grandma's baking, but be careful, it's not going to be a cakewalk if you enter! https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221208/xmasmines_entrance_01.jpg https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221216/caketunnels_01.jpg https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221216/caketunnels_02.jpg Server owners can adjust the portal count using the xmasdungeon.xmaspopulation convar.

RUST 9TH BIRTHDAY Rust turns 9 this month, that's 9 years of weekly and monthly updates. We’ll celebrate for one day only on 11th December with in-game birthday cake and hats. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221116/rust_bday09_2022_poster_1080p.jpg In the January end of years blog, we'll talk more about how 2022 has gone, what we've achieved and what we learned as well as our upcoming plans. MODULAR CAR CODE LOCKS Car keys have been removed from the game and replaced with code locks, which should be a lot more useful. These can be added at a vehicle lift in the same way key locks were added, and for the same price (75 metal fragments). https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221201/modularvehicle_codelock_01.jpg Features: Add, change, or remove code locks from a car at any vehicle lift. Code locks prevent mounting the vehicle - except for taxi modules - and also prevent access to storage. Players in a taxi module cannot swap seats to any other type of module. To capture a car with code locks, you can reduce the health of a seating module to 20% or less, which will enable an option to break the lock. Alternatively, if you can push the car to a vehicle lift, a new code can be set there. Note that locked cars cannot be pushed in safe zones. A mounted player can flip the Central Locking switch in a cockpit module to unlock all doors, temporarily disabling code access. Code locks on the exterior of the car will light up green instead of red. If all players in cockpit modules dismount, the central locking is automatically re-engaged. After entering the correct code, players are automatically whitelisted, and won't need to enter the code again. IMPROVEMENTS AND FIXES HIGHLIGHTS Planter Improvements Harvest/Clone/Remove all plants in a planter in one action Stone Spear Stone spear is cheaper and quicker to craft Miner's Hat Buff Miner's hat now offers better protection values Roof Rotation Roof can now be rotated before placement Grenade Crafting Times All grenade crafting times have been reduced Attack Helicopter Loot Improved Attack Helicopter loot tables Garge Doors Pickup Equipping a Hammer to pickup the Garage door is no longer required Armored Door HP Armored door HP increased by 25% Repair Cost Fixes Repairing deployables no longer require components Instrument Range Increase pitch range on several instruments Junkpile Scientists Reduced the number of Scientists at junkpiles M92 Sway Reduced sway when aiming with the M92 Despawn times Various high value items 5min -> 60min IO Deployment Various IO entities can be placed near floor level Projectile_Invalid Will show when you died first vs projectile_invalid X Days Upkeep Shows days of upkeep rather than >72 hours No Components For Repair Shotgun Trap, Garage Door, etc UI Scaling Fix small UI on 4k+ resolutions CABOOSE AT OUTPOST We've added a static (non-moving, indestructible) train caboose at the Outpost, which has the standard casino games inside: Poker, Slots, and the new Blackjack machine - so...

Memeio been living up to his name this month. I present to you: cRust He made it in 7 days ..allegedly It's better than Rust ..allegedly 1 person at PAX enjoyed it ..allegedly Absolutely no copyright infringements ..maybe WHENS CAPYBARAS?? CREATOR SPOTLIGHT This month we have your resident building inspector, Dust! "Yo! My name's Dust, I'm a Rust YouTuber with a focus on base build videos, but also high quality cinematics and full length gameplay movies! My friend convinced me to download Rust in 2018 and I’ve barely seen a blade of grass since. What really hooked me was watching awesome content by Evil Wurst, Blooprint, Tesla, Frost, aloneintokyo and a ton of other insanely talented creators. I started YouTube pretty recently and things quickly took off. Even though I started as a build channel, there’s been a ton of demand for more movies so I’m working on putting out more action packed wipe content! Stay tuned! On a real note, my favorite part about this whole journey has been the friendships that I’ve made along the way. Rust is a super unique game where you’ll end up spending hundreds or thousands of hours with people, so you’ll tend to build some really strong and genuine friendships. The creator community in Rust is also super collaborative and filled with some awesome people." He's gotten pretty good with those cinematics! PAX COSPLAY Camomo sent us in some awesome cosplay pics from PAX AUS last month! Think one of these guys was in Memeio's cRust video :) https://files.facepunch.com/errn/1b1511b1/IMG_2702.jpg...

PROTOTYPE 17 Arms manufacturers contracted by Cobalt were tasked with producing a new side arm to meet the personal defense requirements of the organization. After an exhaustive review of potential candidates, the Prototype 17 was selected. This new weapon has a magazine capacity of 18 and fires in deadly 3 round bursts with the single pull of the trigger. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221102/rust_prototype17_firstperson.jpg In addition, it features tritium sights for rapid target acquisition and engagement under low light conditions. It has been noted that some survivors have scavenged and reverse engineered the weapon, extracting some of its components and allowing them to augment their own weapons with the 3 round burst ability. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221103/rust_prototype17_03.jpg https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221102/prototype17_range_01.jpg CABOOSE We've added a new train carriage that you might find on sidings. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221102/caboose_exterior_01.jpg Inside you'll find a poker table with four seats, two slot machines, and a brand new blackjack computer that can handle 1-3 players. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221102/caboose_interior_01.jpg All the features of blackjack are here, and blackjack pays out 3:2. The computer hates to lose, but he plays fair. You can make an initial bet of between 5 and 500 scrap. Just keep an ear out for what's going on nearby - this isn't a safe zone! https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221103/rust_caboose_blackjack_01.jpg QUALITY OF LIFE CHANGES Swap Attachments Swap Attachments more easily by right clicking or click and dragging to attachment slots Get new bags while dead Death screen will now update if you are assigned a new bag while already dead Cap Menu FPS to 60 New setting in Options menu, prevents high framerates HLOD For the past few months I've been working on a new system to improve how we render monuments at a distance while maintaining or improving the current performance. It uses a technique called HLOD (Hierarchical Level of Detail) and involves baking the monument as it should be seen at a distance down into a single mesh. A key requirement was to make sure this didn't add any extra work for our environment artists, this process is almost entirely automated. https://files.facepunch.com/Alistair/11/02/0140l1/GScE57r6FX.gif https://files.facepunch.com/Alistair/11/02/2S09Y1/ezgif-3-a14076f95b.gif The final performance improvements were minimal, but the increased visual fidelity at a distance still seemed worthwhile to ship. You should notice more geometry and detail, as well as entire monuments that will now be visible when they weren't before. ANNOUNCEMENT: STEAM NETWORKING / QUERY PORT We have plans in place to switch the default networking layer of Rust servers from RakNet to Steam Networking in late November or early December, further communication will follow.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! The Halloween events are now enabled! Once roughly every two in-game days, a candy hunt event will begin. You'll have 3 minutes to collect as many candies as you can. The top 3 players are given special loot bags as a reward. These candies and loot bags can be opened for various types of loot ranging from scrap all the way up to an M249! If you don't make the podium, that's okay. The candies you collect can be upgraded for better loot. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20211026/halloween_mummies.jpg There are various items available to help you during your hunt. The Pumpkin Bucket will allow instant pickup of candies and the Scarecrow Wrap and Ghost Costume will provide you with an advantage via Candy Vision. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20211026/halloween_scarecrow.jpg The Halloween event will run until November 3rd. Have fun! PORTALS Cultists are said to have been opening portals throughout the world, others believe it's a Cobalt experiment code-named R.U.I.N gone horribly wrong. Not much is known about these portals or what they do, only a few chads have entered and made it back alive. Do you dare to enter? https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221020/dungeonportal_01.jpg Server owners can adjust the portal count using the halloweendungeon.population convar. NEW HALLOWEEN ITEMS This year we've added three new Halloween themed items to the Rust store. Hockey Facemask Hide your facial deformities with this creepy hockey mask. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221020/hockeymask_01.jpg The Hockey Facemask skin is a reskin of the Metal Facemask. Cultist Deer Torch The Cultists must have dropped this while opening the portals throughout the world. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221020/cultistdeertorch_01.jpg The Cultist Deer Torch is a reskin of the starter torch. Once the torch skin is selected or crafted, you'll respawn with this skin. Baseball Bat It wouldn't be a zombie apocalypse without hitting zombies in the head with a baseball bat! https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20221020/baseballbat_01.jpg The Baseball bat is a reskin of the mace melee weapon. Now purchasable at the Rust item store. FRANK IS BACK! GRHRRR.. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20211026/frankenstein_hauntedhouse.jpg To start building your own monster, first, you must slay scarecrows and mummies that roam the lands. Once you've collected a head, torso and legs, craft yourself a Frankenstein's table and place the body parts within the table. Awaken your new pet monster and control it by pressing "P". https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20211026/monstertable_wakeup.jpg The monster will follow your orders without question. It'll follow you around the map, defend you if attacked and help slay foes you wish to attack. https://files.facepunch.com/paddy/20211026/monstertable_tier3.jpg If you're having trouble accessing the pet menu or already have a key bound to "P" then use the following console command: bind X +pets or open the in-game controls menu.

I recently wrote about how it's looking pretty unlikely that Rust will actually be supported on Steam Deck / Linux with Proton, and it's not looking any better right now.
