Rust - Boats, Forests, and the Helicopter Event

Rust - Update 199 Brings the First Vehicle and PVE Improvements, Details Here:

Greetings Rust Fans! Since leaving Early Access behind in February, Rust is still an ever-changing game. Update 199 comes in with a surprising amount of changes and fixes.

New Boat

The first player controlled vehicle is now here! A motorized rowboat, with seating for one driver and three passengers. You will be able to find these boats along the shoreline and they will operate on Low-Grade Fuel. While using the boats you can find the new floating junkpiles. You can use the boat's storage box located in the bow. If you are interested in more information about the new motorized rowboats check out this in-depth write-up from Rustified:

CH-47 Event

A new Ch-47 helicopter event has added as well. This is what it is about:

This transport helicopter is a periodic server event which will appear offshore and make its way to a designated drop zone to resupply. Drop zones are located at most of the Tier 1 and above monuments, and the helicopter will orbit the area in an attempt to neutralize any threats (read: players). After this, it will approach the drop zone and release its payload.

Forest Improvments

The forest will be looking more lively. Added attention to bushes, brush, and overall detail will give the forests a new feel. You will notice the increased density of the forests, especially nearing waterfronts.
