FORTS - HOTFIX 2018-09-17a

G'day Forts fans! We've become aware of a cheat being used to gain an advantage over other players. This update will now cause a Data desync if this is used, or other modifications are made to your local data files. If you experience a Data desync immediately upon entering a multiplayer battle, follow this procedure:

1) Right click on Forts in Steam
2) Select properties, then go to the local files tab
3) Select Verify integrity of game files

Any changes to your files will be reverted.

Note: this will not remove files that have been added. The game preloads all scripts in the effects folder, including those of active mods. So adding any will still cause a Data deysnc. If this happens, delete the extra scripts, or delete all scripts and then verify the game files to get a new, unpolluted copy. If you are still having trouble, delete the data folder and then verify, or re-install Forts.

HOTFIX 2018-09-17a
Add: DebugPixelFormat option to avoid DescribePixelFormat, potential cause of crash for a user
Balance: Firebeam penetrates at least 90 after armour (reduced from 120)
Optimise: only preload ambient environment effect on World start
Fix: scripts and images can be edited to expose hidden information (now causes Data desync)
Fix: link initial hitpoints not updated when backgrounding a strut
Fix: ExplosionCache::LoadExplosion adds effects even if they're already loaded
Fix: EMP is triggered when ignited by Firebeam
Fix: flaming warheads turn into damaged warheads when hit, not damaged flaming warheads
Fix: crash when sending files during a desync report

HOTFIX 2018-09-18a
Fix: some mods cause Data desyncs

“Brisbane-based Earthwork Games has brought out a fort building - and fort destroying - simulator that combines strategy, engineering, aiming, and micromanagement. It's a fun cocktail that puts me in mind of Scorched Earth, or maybe a Scorched Earth that let me build a bunker around my tank. And then three more tanks on my bunker.”
Kotaku

“Forts is an exceptional example of how a release can properly integrate many mechanics, from multiple genres, and get it right. The fast-paced challenge of managing multiple tasks before you’re obliterated creates a sense of urgency and an increased heart rate that you wouldn’t normally find from a title that simply leverages one of these mechanics. Buy Forts, and make a solid investment in your game library.”
The Overpowered Noobs

“Forts is a simple, fun game, has a nice sense of humour and is guaranteed to get your brain whirling as you figure out the best way to build your base, defend your weapons while also pelting the enemy with bullets and bombs.”

About This Game

Tons of Guns - Free Multiplayer Update

The arms race intensifies with this new update that adds two new tech buildings which allow commanders access to six formidable new weapons, and a host of new and varied strategies. The Armoury unlocks Flak guns to clear the skies of enemy projectiles, and EMP rockets to power down enemy tech, both of which can be upgraded to the Shotgun and twin Rocket launcher, respectively. The classic Cannon is now found in the new Munitions Plant, where it is joined by it's little brother, the burst-firing 20mm Cannon. The Factory now produces two beam weapons, the classic Plasma Laser and the new Firebeam, great for penetrating fortifications to ignite them from within.

Tons of Guns comes complete with new AI forts bristling with new weapons for players to take on in Skirmish or Multiplayer, and a new Mod Selection feature, which allows several new game types, such as Fast Build, Rapid Fire and Zero Gravity. Also included are Truce mods, which provide a period of varying lengths in which players can build up their forts in peace, before they start blasting each other into oblivion. All this, and the previously released Steam Workshop integration, comes free to Forts owners and increases the fort building possibilities of the game. Enjoy!
