Fortnite Patch Notes 3.16 / 16.40

CREATIVE MODE UPDATE V.16.40 - THE RACE MANAGER DEVICE IS NOW AVAILABLE IN FORTNITE CREATIVE MODE

RACE MANAGER

In update V.16.20 we introduced the joyride vehicles and the racing checkpoint device. With the Race Manager device added this week, you can now create even more advanced racing games!

Creators can now record and display the number of laps driven, the race time and the best time! The race manager also opens up a whole range of new possibilities for new types of play: You now have the option of creating time trials or even tournaments in which several laps have to be driven.

Learn more about the new Race Manager on the recent Fortnite Creative Mode documentation page.

NEW SUMMER FEATURES AND VEHICLES

Completely new, summery content awaits you, creators. Jump into the game and check out the fully deployable boats, fishing zone, and brand new surfboard! Creates boat races, fishing competitions, or surfboard trick races for surfers. Get your beach party started now as the summer months approach!

If you're planning on creating something with the new content, then you should also take a look at the Summer Creator Appeal for the chance to be featured in our summer event that we will be announcing soon!

GAMEPLAY BUG FIXES

  • Fixed a bug that prevented players from quickly editing buildings while holding a blueprint.

ISLAND BUG FIXES

  • We made some material adjustments to all grid islands to give more visual clarity to the grid lines and the surface. The new, flat material has less visual noise compared to the old concrete material and reflects less light.
  • These older island centers have been removed from the island creation menu as we switched to a new layout for centers and portals: Flat Grid Center, Floating Island Center, Grass Hill Center.

USER INTERFACE

  • Fixed a bug that caused the Details and Back buttons to overlap in the Creative Inventory.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the list of previous islands from updating.

FINISHED OBJECT AND GALLERY BUG FIXES

  • Fixed an issue where some floors of the Coral Castle Center prefab did not load the material as intended.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the roof objects of the Coral Castle Prefabricated Objects and Gallery from displaying a health bar when damaged or damaged by weapons.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the snowpiles on the Ice House precast objects and gallery to have a one-sided texture.

WEAPON AND ITEM TROUBLESHOOTING

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the fitness power-up device from falling completely on the floor when enlarged.
  • Fixed an issue where the Kugler's grapple was pulling vehicles towards the Kugler instead of the other way around.
