Update 3.0.0 For Fortnite Improves Building Experience


Winner Winner Chic.. Sorry, Wrong Game

After a number of different (and interesting) updates in the past such as the lovestruck special, Fortnite launched its latest version 3.0.0 update. It’s sole focus is on improving the building experience for players. This seems like a step in the right direction considering its one of the aspects that made the game special was building stuff.

According to Epic in their blog post, the update’s ‘Turbo Building’ feature lets you hold down the fire button to continuously place a selected building piece. “Now you can ‘paint’ building pieces into the world quickly,”

Furthermore, you can also swap building materials automatically, which is named ‘Auto Change Material’ in-game. As the name suggests, it lets you change materials to a different one quickly if you’re out on the primary one.

“Sometimes it’s frustrating when your placement is blocked unexpectedly and you aren’t sure why,” adds Epic. “Currently, smaller objects like furniture and shrubs are destroyed when you build over them, but trees, rocks and vehicles can still get in the way. We’ve changed the building system to allow you to place structures right through large objects, meaning you can now build pretty much anywhere at anytime”

“Player structures must still be supported by the terrain and other buildings. For example: A sky ramp that passes through a tree will still fall if the connection to the terrain or floor is destroyed.”

Fortnite’s update v3.0.0 applies a number of bug fixes and gameplay tweaks across both Battle Royale and Save the World—with the latter getting a new hero and hoverboard. The full details for both can be found here.
