Patch Notes, Version 1.1.1

Quick fix to the shadow options which unfortunately slipped past my testing.

v. 1.1.1
- Changing shadow quality works again.
- Changed a minor thing in the outpost build sites to hopefully fix another bug. But I was unable to reproduce the issue so I can't be sure if it did anything.

In case you are still having problems, please let me know what your issues are and I will see if I can address them.

When playing the game on my desktop it manages around 50-60fps so I'm not sure why some are having such severe slowdown. Only thing I can think of is if there are lots of texture swaps because of limited video memory. Reducing the quality of, or turning off shadows should hopefully fix that.

Thanks for understanding.

Update 1.1! Resolution and UI update

Hi everyone!

tl:dr Full patch notes below!

Since the successful launch last year I released a number of quick quality of life patches. After that I felt the game was in a good state and left it for a while. Working on another game. After a while I felt I wanted to go back to make a larger update on one of the games biggest issues: resolution options.

Why wasn't it in the game originally? First of all, adding resolution options is not completely trivial, combine that with the fact that I seriously didn't even think it would be an issue. I use a normal 1080 monitor and I guess I just learned to ignore the blurriness after a while. My bad.

In order to add resolution options I had to change the way the HUD/UI was set up. It was designed for the 1280x720 resolution and filled the entire top and right side of the screen. This has now been changed to instead have several smaller UI elements that anchor their position to whatever edge makes the most sense. This makes sure the UI is adaptable to any screen size (above 1280x720) and will not scale or stretch in any way.

Resolution options now work so that the pixel size will always be 1:1 with your monitor. If you play in fullscreen the game will use your monitors resolution, but you can freely adjust the game window as well. Meaning it supports anything up to 4k. If your monitor is larger than 4k I'm not sure what happens... Could be issues in fullscreen or windows larger than 4k.

I hope you enjoy the update!

“Fortify is in a league of its own when compared to the standard, more passive gameplay of other tower defense games.”
The Nerd Is The Word

“The great variety of attacking enemies keep you on your toes as you try and level up your units, build and manage resources.”

“One day at 2:00 AM I woke up with a new idea on how to pass day 6 without dying. I got up and started playing.”
