Fortress Forever v2.6 Released (June 2016)

Fortress Forever v2.6 Release 5th June 2016

New scout movement weapon: The JumpGun

Jumpgun - YouTube

  • When fully charged it can be fired to produce an upwards thrust like a mid-air powerful jump
  • Whilst the weapon is out, it'll charge up; switching weapons loses charge
  • We don't have a weapons modeller at the moment, so it's using the railgun model for now. If you'd like to model us a new gun, please get in touch!
Dispenser changes:
  • Wrenching a dispenser now recharges 5 cells per whack; you can no longer insert your own ammo with your wrench
  • Dispensers are now cheaper, down from 100 cells to 30 cells
  • Dispensers have less maximum capacity, down from: 400 to 100 cells; 500 to 100 nails; 400 to 100 shells, 250 to 50 rockets, 500 to 100 armor. NOTE: It's explosion size is based on what percentage full it is, not the total ammo number. This means the explosion size has not changed, but it reaches full detonation size quicker.
  • Dispenser health reduced from 150 to 75
  • Dispensers no longer eat backpacks when they are full

Ragdoll and gib changes
  • Ragdolls are no longer affected by concussion grenades
  • Ragdolls are pushed less by explosions
  • Ragdolls last for 5 seconds, down from 15
  • Gibs are now more frequent from deaths with explosions (>30 dmg overkill rather than >50)
  • Dropped player weapons are now tied to cl_gib_lifetime

Bugfixes
Misc
  • Railgun now glows more dramatically when it's fully charged

We look forward to seeing you in game!

About This Game

Fortress Forever is a Source mod inspired by the earlier versions of the Team Fortress series (Team Fortress Classic and QuakeWorld Team Fortress). Our all-volunteer team has created this mod entirely from scratch and continued to develop it since late 2004. It was originally released in September of 2007.

Fortress Forever involves two or more teams, each with 9 available classes, competing in a variety of map-determined objectives (capture the flag, territorial control, invade and defend, etc). Each class has its own unique abilities and strengths that offer extremely varied playstyles. The gameplay ranges from fast-paced, competitive, and deep to absurd and chaotic.

  • Totally free
  • Fast paced, team- and class-based gameplay
  • Faithful to the spirit of Team Fortress Classic (TFC) and QuakeWorld Team Fortress (QWTF), meaning Fortress Forever includes offhand grenades, bunnyhopping, etc
  • 10 Classes (9 + Civilian)
  • Training level and in-game hints
  • Extensive map scripting/customization using Lua

FAQ


Q: How is this related to Team Fortress 2?
A: It isn't at all. Fortress Forever was in development before the current incarnation of Team Fortress 2 was announced and was released before TF2. The gameplay and goals of each are vastly different and are hard to compare directly. Fortress Forever is far more similar to Team Fortress Classic and QuakeWorld Team Fortress than it is to Team Fortress 2.

It seems like a great game that offers a sense of rewarding accomplishment when you know how to bunny hop, grenade or concussion jump, kill, all at high speed which this game is all about, but what the hell is the point of this if there's 0 players almost all the time.


Hate to say it but I can't really recommend this game. Community doesn't seem very active, but I think the biggest turn off for new players is once they see that this is nothing like TF2, especially most players that tried to transitioned over to FF most likely failed, which there is a lot more emphasis on advanced movement technique, skill and mastery with each class and their weapons available..and just raw skill, not because you're wearing a hat or own some random gun that deals 3000 damage if you're low on health or whatever gimmicky nonsense that TF2 has done to most of their higher level weapons and other cosmetic crap. (i'm being sarcastic, relax) there is a training mode, which is crucial if you are to become somewhere near a successful FF/TFC (team fortress classic) and also learn how to perform many of the advanced movements with some of the classes, such as using the scout's concussion bombs to spring forward--and it's actually pretty fun to do while in matches!! Pyro can use his flame thrower as a jet pack to cross over chasms and stuff.

From what I can see now, this game has probably weeded out just about it's entire playerbase, which is a trend that I noticed with alot of the classic arena fps games that are out there, which I feel are kind of dwindling compared to more popular shooters out there...At this point, you might as well play TF2.

Try FF if you want, but you'll be lucky if you can find a server that has few players on it, but you'll most likely get your ♥♥♥ kicked in through your torso.

It's probably a good game, but it's a bit too complicated for me. So, unless you're just a casual, like me, go for it.

Basically TFC remastered, which is NOT a bad thing. But it has even less active people than TFC (only one active server).

Fortress forever is one of few actually good games you'll find on steam. It's also not dead no matter how much people want to believe it. It's breathing just fine while living a healthy lifestyle.

After about 8 hours of playing, here are my thoughts...
1. This game is much more polished than TFC because TFC uses an older engine.
2. The people tend to be more well behaved the people you see on pub TF2 matches.
3. The game is more balanced than TF2 and has a faster pace.
4. There are no teleporters in FF, meaning that the Engineer class is almost exclusively for defending the flag.
5. You get only the stock weapons and no hats.

Conclusion: FF is a good, free alternative to TFC and has a much faster pace than TF2. This is offset by the lack of players. However, when you do find a server, with people playing, it is very fun and very much worth your time.

I hope this review was helpful to anyone considering whether they should play FF or not, and if you do like FF, I hope to see you in a game. Have fun and Happy Fragging.

Game: Fortress Forever
Original Release Date: 13 Sep, 2007
Steam Release Date: 27 March, 2015
Date of last update: 13 June, 2015
Date of Review: 27 March, 2015

The Good:
- Heavily based of skill-based movement, something that is amazing and is barely seen in modern shooters, it features many different methods of skill-based movement such as bhopping, rocket jumping, trimping, etc. This massively contributes to the overall game experience.
- Each class has a specific role, so teamwork is not just encouraged, but required, to win. This means the way the game works is very different to similar games (such as Team Fortress 2)
- Open & active community development: Fortress Forever is completely open source, and it's developed by volunteer community contributors. The maps, models, textures and code is all created by volunteer community members, and this is amazing. The fact such a small, dedicated team of volunteers can create such an amazing, completely free game and all the maps, etc is truly impressive.
- Completely free: Fortress Forever is completely Free to Play, no micro-transactions, no trading, no DLC. It's completely free, no exceptions.
- Map making and advanced lua coding for maps, pretty awesome for people experienced with hammer, but always wanted to add more.
- Decent graphics, definitely better than it's predecessors (Team Fortress Classic and QW Team Fortress), while still having their gameplay remain in place.

The Bad:
- It uses an older version of the source engine compared to games like Team Fortress 2, so some features are missing.
- You have to stretch your hand over your keyboard, pressing numbers 1-6 to switch weapons (minor complaint, I know).
- The game can be difficult for new players, for several reasons:
-- New players are often used to dumbed down FPS mechanics, so they don't even know where to start with skill-based movement or a game as fast-paced as Fortress Forever.
-- Most players who have played before the steam release are highly skilled and play matches/pickups often, this means new players will not be having fun when they are not as experienced.

The Overall Judgement:
- Good: General good game rewarding skilled players and movement + amazing quality gameplay for it's cheap price of nothing.
- Bad: Outdated engine, new players will struggle against experienced players.
- Rating: 9/10
