What the developers have to say:

“Fortress Craft Evolved is the next step of the sensational indie voxel game from ProjectorGames that allows you to build to the limits of your wildest imagination. The in-progress Alpha version is available right now for Windows, with Mac, and Linux planned for the next phases. Check out FortressCraftEvolved.com where you can join the community, follow our roadmap of planned features and give feedback on the evolutionary process! We'll be releasing feature updates regularly in a relentless pace towards the launch of our new breed of building games - Fortress Craft Evolved. The current build is a sandbox mode that puts the power and ease of use of our new tools, interface and worlds into the hands of new users. The biggest thing missing right now is Multiplayer; we want to focus on getting the single player game to be reliable and intuitive before delving into that! Full Steam Workshop support should also be arriving over the next few weeks! Thanks for reading to the end. Please pretend there is a picture of an adorable kitten at the end of this wall of text!”

V1.11 now available - Mass Storage and AutoCrafting!

June 13th, 2014



In the quest to allow YOU to have a completely amazing automated base, I now present to you FortressCraft : Evolved patch 1.11.

For full patch notes, head over to the forum : http://steamcommunity.com/app/254200/discussions/0/648814842759470951/

Remember, to keep up with the latest developments, check out @fortress_craft on twitter - we're very keen to hear your feedback!

The main features are the Personal Storage system and the Mass Storage System. You can now (T)ransfer items into Storage Hoppers by pointing at them and pressing T - this allows you to clear out all of those smelted Bars that're clogging up your inventory.

You can build Storage Crates for manual storage, to store items you don't need. These can't be automated.

Finally, there's support for Automated Crafting.

Those patchnotes in full: (V1.11)

  • Added overflow item queue for items that don't fit in conversion.
  • Fixed infinite ore bug via 'feed ore' button.
  • Player data stored via Steam ID instead of display name. This will fix game progress being reset when you change your steam display name. Old files will convert to new format. NOTE: If your steam display name was a valid hexadecimal number (only characters 0-9 and A-F or a-f), game will refuse to convert. In that case abort the ship crash by exiting before it completes and manually copy the contents over to the new folder.
  • Added Mass Storage facility
  • Added Mass Storage Input Port
  • Added Mass Storage Output Port
  • Added Mass Storage Input cargo robots
  • Minor fix to ensure dropped Items do not get embedded in the ground so much
  • You can now press T to Transfer items from your Hotbar into a Storage Hopper
  • Fixed a bug with Storage Hoppers.
  • InputHoppers now attempt to use the closest Mass Storage Crates for preference.
  • InputHoppers now have an awesome preview of the items they're looking for.
  • HoloBase now knows about Mass Storage Systems
  • Manufacturing plants can now be set to automatically craft an unlimited amount of a single item. Issues WILL arise if the item needs more than 4 materials. An auto-crafting plant also requires constant power, and there's currently no point in this. (Tomorrow's task is to make the Mass Storage Crates require Tin Plates, which will in turn be dying for automation)
  • Lots of improvements related to Smelters, Storage Hoppers and Conveyor Belts to allow them to cope with Objects, Items and Cubes.
  • Added Storage Crates for manual non-automated early storage.
  • Fixed major memory leak with weather system
  • Jet Turbine power generation increased approx 10-fold (it's now 12.5x as fast at generating power as the PTG with coal)
  • Storage Hoppers no longer return incorrect item when multiple cube stacks are present
  • Crafting when inventory is full no longer removes the resources, but instead gives an appropriate error
  • New icons for most manufactured items

FortressCraft V1.10 now available!

June 2nd, 2014

We asked the community what the two-most demanded features were, and we've delivered those (as well as a metric ton of other fixes and improvements!)


First, we added support in for direct sort of ores on conveyor lines. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the MK1 Robot Arms:



Secondly, we've greatly improved the user interface; all of the most-used machines now have a specific, clickable dialogue box. This should allow new players to navigate and understand their base much better.

Early Access Review
review of 1.9 EA

OK, it has blocks, crafting, and mining. That's where the similarities end really.

My daughter plays Minecraft, she plays it for hours. However, whenever I sit down to have a go, I get bored after about 20 minutes. You dig. You build. You dig. zzzz

FortressCraft is much more immediate than that. Your power is running out, you're going to freeze to death, so you need to organise. This forces you to think stategically, about power, about distance, about supply lines (and presumably, in the future, defending them from other players). It kind-of feels more like a RTS, but with blocks.

If you're used to other Mine games, this one IS even more complicated. But part of that is due to a very alpha GUI, things aren't as obvious as they could or should be. This will be fixed!

for example, bringing up your inventory, you have a bunch of blocks. What are they? no idea, a mouse-over tooltip would be nice :)

Also, I'd rather you only had things in your toolbar that you actually owned, it's too confusing with *every possible thing* being shown, yet you can't use 90% of it. Again, early access, these things are to be expected.

One thing that is immediately "wrong" with the game - shelter. If you build a "house" over your base equipment, put a torchfire or two in there, surely it should be warm enough inside that you don't freeze? What's the point of building a "Fortress" if it doesn't have any benefits lol :)

I absolutely recommend this, if you're a fan of Voxel miners or even RTS games. I see a bright future for this game, because unlike others, there is actually a game to be played, a point to it all. (you can, of course, go into creative mode and just build pretty stuff, but I kind-of don't see the point of that unless you can then turn the world into a survival one for you and your friends. No doubt that's coming too eventually).

Buy it, try it. If you don't get on with it, try it again the next update. and the next. It's going to be a good one :)

Early Access Review
For a game thats "Work in Progress" its far more playable than most of these "Final Release" games and is very addictive. Just because the game is block based, and you build craft items, its not potions and crud, Minecraft this is NOT. Its machines and other wicked stuff. The Dev team are a cool and helpfull bunch, always in the forums (supprised they find time to code the game actually) to answer your questions and to comment on feedback.

Oh, Ignore the Thumbs down review's about the game beeing too complicated, It's not. Some people tend to forget this is "Work in Progress", so some of the ingame screens and menus are not complete or layed out too well with desctriptons missing, and can seem to be a little confusing, but its improving all the time.

10/10

It's a good game for the price. It scratches the itch of a building game.

However, it has a lot of bugs a glitches, has no tutorial at all, and most of the features that make it really cool are difficult to figure out and find. It's almost as if they don't want you to know how to do some things.

I don't understand how it has been in development for so long and yet seems to be worse than the xbox version.

I know most people will say "it's not finished" but I purchased it on xbox years ago and it's not any better now so I think it's safe to say this is all you're getting. It's not a whole lot, it's confusing and buggy, but still a good building game for the price.

THIS GAME ROCKS!! I've played many crafting games before in my life and this one takes the gold. I would totally recommend this game. Even the early stage is awesome! Though the controls are a little weird and at night you have to be in an exact spot near fire to save battery life

(Update: This review is focusing on Survival mode only. If you are after a Creative experience, then I still HIGHLY reccomend this game.) /update

This game used to be a darn good time!

Now it's become so complicated, I can't make heads or tails of how to begin a game (let alone play it!)

I am speaking of Survival, of course. You start off in the middle of nowhere, like any good sandbox. And, on par with Minecraft, there are little to no instructions on how to craft/mine/collect/etc. No worries though, I mean I am 33 years old, and this is a game!

So let's start by cutting down a tree! Check! Alright, let's get these wooden walls built so I can have a bit of shelter from the snowing biome I have found myself in. There is the wooden block in the massive list of ALL blocks in-game. Selected, and find the perfect spot to place...click.......

Click...click...nothing is happening? Click...Right Click... Hmm, maybe I need to "craft" the wood? Let's check out the crafting station: "Tons of electrical stuff" and "No wood things" Well that's a bust, and here comes the night! Well, let's build a torch at least. To stay warm and powered up, since I need to have this space suit on at all times! Holy CRAP! There is a ship flying around above me!

Maybe they know how to make some wood walls? Let's jump up there to check, have to save battery power don't want to die next to my torch. "Hey fancy ship guys!" . . . "Hello?" . . . Hmm, I guess this is just another mystery, like the lost art of woodworking...

Crud, my battery is down to 15% better get back to my torch. Ahh, oh no! The torch is too hot! My battery has to cool off my suit now! If only there was some way to take it off and, you know, sit next to this fire to keep warm/cold. Too bad that tech went the way of the axe and saw. 10% Aww man, I am not even half way through the night --8%-- yet. Maybe I can make one of these power devices to help --6%-- recharge my suit? Oh, that's too bad, I need something called --4%-- a base to place this in. --2%-- I wonder how you make a base --1%-- I bet it has wooden walls...

(Took 30 minutes, never figured a darn thing out. As it stands, dropping this from a 8/10 down to a 5/10.)
