Update v7.20 will see an enchancment to wall constructing.
Fortnite’s replace v7.20 goes to roll out a change that can remedy points gamers are having when constructing a wall, particularly when it “builds partially below, or is obstructed by, the ground”.
Design lead, Eric Williamson, introduced on Reddit that wall placement will likely be improved following the replace, sharing earlier than and after screenshots demonstrating the way it will work.
“This function will kick in while you try to put a [wall] that:
- Requires a connection to a constructing piece
- The connecting piece is no less than 70% underground
Under these circumstances, the required connecting piece will now construct mechanically and at no cost. In addition, the connecting piece will inherit workforce possession guidelines (and the fabric kind) of the specified piece.”
Epic Games group supervisor Sean Hamilton (MrPopoFTS) added that this feature will only affect walls for now, whereas Williamson instructed one other Redditor that it might “possibly” expand to other structures (stairs in this instance) “down the road.”
The preliminary publish talked about buildings earlier than it was edited to partitions, so we’ll see if this modification is utilized to the rest in future updates.
