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.

I don t recomend this for people who hates b-hops

This game would be so much fun without those bhops
cuz lots of people don t have time to waste two months of training to learn bhoping.
I love TF2, I play that game every day but this game would be awesome without those annoying bhoping jerkbags

This would be a lot of fun but nope

Fortress Forever is a free Source mod based on Team Fortress Classic. The mod's only weakness is the lack of players. even TFC Has more players than FF.

Overall, FF Deserves a score of 8/10

It's fast, it's fun and if you ever manage to get the rhythm down, very fulfilling. Classes are not linearly balanced and each one has a very defined role, the gameplay revolves around the objective much more than combat and the pressure is constant.

The only problem is the community. One of four things will happen when you try to play this game;

1. Every server is empty or nearly empty.
2. When you find a decently sized game, you get a handful of people who have no idea what they're doing and the team balance is incredibly skewed.
3. You get elitist old♥♥♥s who are antagonistic to the growth of the game, preventing newer players from improving by shunning them while at the same time never managing to get along with their existing cliques.
4. You find a pickup game which can go smoothly until you sneeze at the wrong time and ruin an admin's day.

None of that is the game's fault, though. For the most part everything is in the right place. A proper evolution of TFC.
