Rust is adding randomized penis size

Penissize

Rust, the open-world survival game from Garry’s mod developer Facepunch studios tackles inclusion in games in a rather interesting way. Your in-game skin colour is randomly selected and tied to your Steam ID and is giving some players a taste of what it might be like to be a minority – complete with digital segregation and virtual racial slurs. It’s now tackling something else. Tackle.

In Rust, players spawn naked and have to work towards becoming clothed, unless they’re helped along by kindly souls offering them some pants. Expect to see many more pairs of pants in the game, as players will now spawn with varying, visible penis sizes.

You can take a look at the differing states of tackle here, but be warned; it’s Not Safe for Work.

While this may have little effect to the game itself, it’s an interesting little social experiment to see how much penis size matters in the virtual world, and if it’ll have the same sorts of effects in game as it does in real life. What would be frankly incredible is if the developers would then add expensive microtransactions to increase the size of players’ digital wangs to see how much vanity ties in to the experience, and see just how much money people would be willing to pay to increase the e-peens. For some men, their entire identities are tied to their genitals

Interestingly, the developers are looking at adding female player models to the game at some point – and will probably randomise and tie gender to Steam ID’s as well.

Here’s what they say on the state of the female player models as they stand.

“We’ve started investigating a female model. We really don’t want to make the female model unrealistic in the sense of her being aesthetically idealised. In the same way that our male models aren’t perfect specimens of the male body, neither should the female be. No huge boobs nor four-inch waists here.”

I’ve not played Rust, but I think I’m going to have to start. While it’s likely not my sort of game, as a social experiment, or series of social experiments, it’s certainly tickling my fancy. And it might, finally (depending on the roll of the digital dice) allow me to have a huge penis. Curse you, Asian genes!

    Does it also take into account weather effects?

    Spent about 4 hours playing this game but got tired of the cycle: Spawn, pick up rock, shot by player with M4. If that was my online experience I doubt they are going to hand me pants before they shoot me and my pet rock down.

      I somehow think that it is even MORE cruel to give someone pants before they mercilessly gun you down. That’s how much they didn’t even NEED this sought after item.

      Random Stranger: Oh hey there naked guy!
      You: PLEASE DON’T KILL ME I’M FRIENDLY!
      Random Stranger: Hahahaha. Don’t worry bud. I’m friendly too. I see you don’t have pants. Here you go.
      You: Wow. Thanks. Really. You’re possibly the only nice person I’ve ever met here.
      *You put on the pants, covering up your shame in much the same way Adam did.
      You: Thanks again. They fit really well. Do you mind if….
      *Random Stranger shoots you in the head. You die, splattering brains and skull fragments all over your new pants.
      Random Stranger: Hahahahaha.

      Unfair that the penis size does not affect game play; if you are “genetically lucky” you should able to use it. Ambush from behind the tree and slapping him on the forehead with your member (earning you a mushroom print achievement) stunning him long enough to disarm.

    I’m not too interested in Rust. A bit of a mixed bag imo. The PvP in a survival game can be both funny and really irritating since people tend to be assholes.
    It also seems to be the only game that never goes on sale.

        Yes. New guy comes here. Makes a joke…accidentally with a single grammatical error. He gets ripped to shreds. ;P
        I played Beasts of Prey the other night with a friend. We finally got a nice place going. Got crossbows crafted and all. Killed our first triceratops. So I stand on our wall, hearing a car. Two buggies pull up. Guys get out. I don’t shoot, waiting to see if they’re friendly. They all pull out automatic rifles. Kill us. Steal all our stuff and burn down our place.

          Bought a Tank in GTAV. So I climb in and disable passive mode. It’s so funny because you can see another player as a white dot. And normally there’s lots of them trying to kill other players. But it’s so funny to see them round a corner, realize what they’re up against and try to run away before I blow them up. Only bad part is you’re liable for damages for their car 😐

            I was so pissed. I don’t mind good competition. But you come there with an entire crew. Clearly with many hours worth of gameplay and crafting and upgrades. I’ve been working on my place for an hour or two. It’s just bad sportsmanship. These are the kind of people small penis size in Rust was made for.

    I tried the survival genre a while back with a few of the varied and innovative zombie apocalypse ones. Besides learning that people suck more than Zombies, I also quickly learnt that He Who Controls the Aimbot Controls the Server. I’ll stick to DotA and single player games. Ain’t no aimbot there! Muahahahahaha. NOW EAT MY ZEUS DOUBLE ULT MORTAL SCUM!

    Great idea. Still an obsessively boring game.

    Now if they actually add content I would be more interested.

    Their social experiment is going to backfire with the female models. The “ugly” ones will be shot on site, whilst the “pretty” ones will be given pants.

    The rage that will happen will be biblical.

    😐
    That’s like dividing by zero right there :O
