Rust Game Map Fixes

So I thought I’d make a quick post tonight with some update news for Rusty Navigator.  Tonight I have fixed the ‘relative’ area of where you are in Rust, and now your location will _exactly_ match up with the servers.  Im also just finishing up the code on changing how the GPS Navi works on the Rust map.  It now rotates completely relative to what angle you are facing in the world.  Pretty exciting stuff.

This is one of the things that was mentioned on the Rusty Navigator Forum, and I will always prioritize what you guys want fixed/added the most!  Be sure to register and post, as you could possibly change where Rusty Navigator is going.  I appreciate any input.

Tomorrow I am looking to upload a bug fix version of the last build.  I think there is some confusion on how the Friend Finder system works. Your friends must be running Rusty Navigator as well, then you (and they) will see where you are as long as your playing on the same server with the same group/password combination.  I’m going to add more error checks and make it a bit more user-friendly for everyone.

A new build will be out tomorrow evening after I get some testing done on the current stable build.  Thereafter the next build will fix the accuracy on the map, and a new map will be put on Rusty Navigator.  I know its a pain in the ass to keep un-installing and re-installing a new Rusty Navigator, but hopefully this will be built up quickly!

 

New Discussion Forum & Rust In Game Map Update

So the numbers are showing that some traction is starting to happen with Rusty Navigator, and to better improve the software I have just enabled a Rusty Navigator Forum so any comments, concerns, suggestions, etc. can be posted to…  I appreciate any feedback to help improve the software!

And in other update news…. I’ve gotten some positive feedback on the software so far; but the biggest obstacle people would like to overcome is seeing where their friends are on the server.  So I’m going to implement a method to do this, and will release this next!  Since there is no real way to have any Clan/Tribe/Group/etc on the Rust server I will be implementing a way to see where your friends/group members are.

New groups will be able to be created through Rusty Navigator, with a password.  Members will be able to join the group, and only members of your group will be able to see your location and vise-versa.  Hopefully this will increase the usability of the Rust In-Game Map.

Stay tuned, as I’ll have more shortly :)
