•First Step Suggestions
Check out the newly added tutorial section of the site to get tips and how tos for using the various features of the game. Updated frequently as the game progresses.
•Where are the Steam Trading Cards
Currently Valve is reviewing the trading cards, badges and backgrounds that go with FortressCraft Evolved…they should be available to the public soon!
•Where is the multiplayer feature?
Multiplayer will be the first major feature added to the early access stage of the game.
•I can’t figure out the controls in game, where is a list of the commands?
While in game, press ‘H’ at any time to bring up the control help screen. Most of the commands available are listed there, further instructions for advanced modes will be on screen when those modes become activated. Some modes are currently works in progress and are not feature complete.
•Is there Xbox 360 Controller support for FortressCraft Evolved?
We plan on adding some added pad support in the near future, however all game functions will not be possible via an Xbox or other PC style controller. Many of the games menus require point and click mouse control an keyboard shortcuts, so likely we will only be building basic movement and building support for the controller.
•There was an error in the game, and I’d like to submit my log file for development.
Where can I find it?
To find the source folder for your game, right click on FortressCraft Evolved, you can select Properties, then Local Files, then Browse Local Files. From the Explorer window, you can then enter FortressCraft_Data\output_log.txt or FC_64_Data\ouput_log.txt
Xbox 360 Version FAQ
•How do I access some of the special ‘console’ commands?
While in game with a keyboard connected, press the left ‘shift’ key to bring up the console command window.
•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 in chapters, each 240MSP (roughly $3), on the Xbox Live Indie Games (XBLIG) store. We 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 us 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 our countries, or don’t have an Xbox?!
Initially FortressCraft will only be available on XBLIG, however we are looking at PC distribution methods. If we 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”. We are also looking at the next generation consoles, XOne and PS4 as possible channels for release.
•Is FortressCraft coming to other platforms? PC, OnLive?
We are working towards releasing FortressCraft via OnLive and then on PC via Steam, 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.
