Fortnite Creative v23.50 Update

The Fortnite Team

The Fortnite v23.50 update has changes to the Hiding Prop Gallery and Pop-up Dialog device, plus updates to the Loot Controller and Map Settings device on Battle Royale Islands. v23.50 also adds the Shifty Shafts Prefabs and Galleries, and additional assets in several other Galleries, along with bug fixes for Prefabs, Galleries, devices, and more.

Hiding Props Update: Hidden Travel

Hiding props give players a place to hide, but now players can also travel from one hiding prop to another! Any hiding prop can be assigned to a group using the Hidden Travel Group option. You can set other hiding props to send players to another group of hiding props using the Hidden Travel Target Group option. If you've enabled the Hidden Travel option on a prop, a player who hides inside it will travel to the target hiding prop and jump out. If you have the prop set to random selection, you can also set it to avoid repeats whenever possible. Keep in mind that when a hiding prop is enabled, it will be invulnerable if it is set up for hidden travel. For more information, see the Hiding Prop Gallery page in our official documentation.

Pop-up Dialog Update: Rich Text Editor

With the Pop-up Dialog device, you can now use a rich text editor when typing in the dialog text. This gives you options for styling the text in different ways. Click the Edit Text button next to the Description option to open the editor in a new full-screen interface. For more details, see the updated Pop-up Dialog Devices page in our documentation.

  • Fixed an issue where guards that were hired with the Auto Hire When Spawned function would not transmit When Hired Transmit On events.

Device Fixes
