Fortnite Creative’s latest update is here to save your game, bringing the new Save Point device, new weapons, and more!

Attention Creative Builders:

Due to a few issues with the Save Point device, we’ve decided to move it back into our closed beta while we resolve issues.

Creators will not lose existing devices or data, but they will no longer be able to place additional Save Point devices.

For updates, check our status on our Trello: https://trello.com/c/5jhSrdvF

Save Point Device Now in Fortnite Creative!

Pick up right where you left off with the new Creative Save Point device, now available for all creators! The Save Point device is a big step towards adding meaningful long-term progression to Creative games. 

Now players can save progress over multiple game sessions, encouraging them to come back to your game again and again. Adding the device to your map will enable persistent tracking of eliminations, inventory, resources, and more across multiple sessions!  

Building a Deathrun game and want players to pick up where they left off? The Save Point device is just what you need. Creating a racing game where you'd like players to be able to track their best lap time? Again, the Save Point device has you covered. Want to create an adventure game that’s too long to complete in a single sitting? You get the point, the Save Point device opens up a whole new world of possibilities for keeping your audience engaged, and we can't wait to see how you use it.

Fly the Choppa!

Even more, vehicles join the fun! The Choppa has been added to the vehicle spawner's device selection, so take to the skies and fly like a bird. Don’t forget, the Choppa is also compatible with the recently released Race Checkpoint!

Creative Documentation Website

We’re excited to announce the launch of the Fortnite Creative Documentation site. Docs on this site feature technical details for Creative features and systems -- all written and published by the Fortnite Dev Team. It’s a great resource for all developers, with info for beginners who are just getting started as well as for seasoned Builders looking for a deeper understanding of Creative tools and techniques. 

We will continue to add to the Docs site over time and give you a heads-up when new content is added. Give it a look and share any feedback you might have on how we can make it even more useful to you.

Hub V2 Changes

  • We have swapped the locations of the Player Portals and Featured Portals within the Flat Grid Hub V2 and Floating Island Hub V2. This will help with less visual distraction while spawning in and improve movement flow.
  • The emissive value on all Island portal room logos has been increased to improve visual clarity.
  • We have swapped the locations for the Favorites, Variety, and Practice logos.
  • We have added phone editable portal room logos, but these should not be changed for any hubs you wish to have featured.

FEATURE REMOVALS

  • We've removed the ability to put devices into item dispensers for use as inventory 
As we look to the future of Creative, occasionally we need to remove older features or fix unintended features which make it hard for us to develop new content.  This was one of those unintended features which people used to fulfill a need but is now blocking us from progressing on Creative. We understand that there is a legitimate need for something to fulfill the role of the items we’ve removed, and we are working on introducing some more suitable items to properly fill that gap in an upcoming release. 

Devices

  • Added Save Point device
    • This device saves various pieces of player data and persists it between play sessions.
    • Only one set of data exists per player per island, so it is possible to have multiple Save Points which save different portions of data and they will all save to the same data file, only overwriting each other if they have the same options set.
    • An option has been added to the Publishing flow to allow all player data to be cleared when the map is republished.  This will clear ALL data for ALL players for this map - use with caution.
    • Enabled During Phase: None, All, Pre-Game Only, Gameplay Only (Default: All).

      • This option saves all checkpoint devices the player has touched, in order, so that they can be used again in later sessions.
    • Save Player Location: Yes, No (Default: Yes).
      • If set to YES, this will retain the player’s exact location and respawn them there during auto-load, without use of a Player Spawn device or Checkpoint.
    • Save Team: Yes, No (Default: No).
      • This could cause issues on maps where players are assigned to teams randomly at game start, so use with caution.
    • Save Class: Yes, No (Default: Yes).

    • Allow Player to Clear Data: Yes, No (Default: No).
