How can I change the maximum number of players in my world?
You can use the ‘SetMaxPlayers
‘ command in the console to change the number of players. The absolute maximum is 32 players, but depending on your network connection having a lot of players might make things slow.
You mentioned the current release as Chapter 1, what is the chapter system about?
The plan is to release FortressCraft chapters, each 240MSP (roughly $3), on the Xbox Live Indie Games (XBLIG) store. I currently have definite plans for four chapters, and slightly more vague ideas for a few more! As above, if you have any ideas for features you would like to see in FortressCraft please let me know and I’ll try my best to include them!
So your plans only include the Xbox 360 so far? What about for those of us who can’t access XBLIG in my countries, or don’t have an Xbox?!
Initially FortressCraft will only be available on XBLIG, however I am looking at PC distribution methods. If I can get distribution sorted for FortessCraft on the PC it will probably be more along the lines of “pay $X and you get all updates ever”. Unfortunately Sony doesn’t provide indie games support like Microsoft does, so it’s incredibly unlikely that FortressCraft will see a PSN release.
Is FortressCraft coming to other platforms? PC, OnLive?
We are working towards releasing FortressCraft via OnLive and then on PC, so YES these versions are in the works. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed for ongoing information.
My SteamHeroes code doesn’t work in FortressCraft
Please make sure you follow the instructions given in SteamHeroes to letter (literally). We have yet to have a code that genuinely doesn’t work. We know it’s a bit fiddly, but please keep trying.
