Building is the name of one of the key aspects that separates Fortnite from the other battle royale style games. bases are important for defense as all of them are able to be only created using the building process. A lot of materials including wood, stone, and metal are needed to build and will have to be gathered if no one is currently available in the inventory of the player.
Each player is able to gather the materials needed from trees, cars, fences, signs, boulders, and so on. You are able to gather materials by destroying items with pickaxe. Aside from that, the building interface is also used to place traps.
In order to create a structure, you can use the build menu during a mission. If a certain player has the minimal amount needed to build the structure, a blue outline of the structure will show up in front of the player. Structure pieces are able to either be placed on the ground, or will have to be directly connected to another structure. The edit mode is able to be used to alter a structure place. Please deselect squares if you want to resize a wall, stair or floor piece, or to remove sides from the pyramid structure. In addition, deselecting squares are also able to create doorways and windows. You can leave the edit option if you want to see an outline of the structure with the selected modifications.
Talking about building, apparently, you are able to edit each part to add building features, such as windows, doors, and roofs. Here is the method to edit them. The first thing that you have to do is to start a new game of Fortnite. Then, equip the pickaxe. The next thing that you have to do is to gather materials. After that, open Building mode (game consoles only). The fifth step is to select a building piece. When it is done, you need to place building piece. Please stand close to the building piece and enter the edit mode. Afterward, select sections to remove from the piece. Feel free to edit the confirm button over the pieces you want to remove to edit the building piece. The last thing that you have to do is to confirm the edits you made. In case the sections of the piece are highlighted in red, it means the edit that you just made is not a legitimate edit and you will not be able to confirm.
This paragraph consists of the information about the upgrading building. In the past, only wooden structures are able to be built but as the character progresses, they will also be able to build using metal and stone. For your information, adding XP points into the appropriate skill nodes of the player will allow the character to build better and stronger items that have more health and will endure more damage before being destroyed. Basically, the stronger the structure, the more resources it will take to build it.
