Yet Another Long Overdue Update

As weeks turn into months, we are finally ready to make some more announcements.

Fortress Forever will be released on Steam March 27th

One week from today, Fortress Forever will be available to download (for free) on Steam.



Fortress Forever is now open source on Github

The code, scripts, and maps of Fortress Forever are publicly available and open to contributions. Check out the Contributing to Fortress Forever page to see how you can help.

Additional resources:
Fortress Forever has a new website

fortress-forever.com has been redesigned and updated to be more relevant to the current state of the game.

Mapping Contest: ff_volleyball makeover

ff_volleyball is a fun little map that needs an aesthetic upgrade before it can be included with the game. Check out this thread for all the details.

The serif fonts in the top right of the redesign look like doodoo. Rest is pretty good though.

Excellent.

Is there a changelog of the patch? Or will it be posted later this week?

That's just SIX days away! WOOHOO!!!!

Edit:

I don't know if I've said this before, but Soldier, Pyro and Demoman shouldn't be considered straight Defensive classes. They are versatile enough to be an Offensive Support class as well. Heavy is definitely a Defensive class, and Scout/Medic/Spy are Offensive classes.

Great news. The effort put forth by the whole team, especially squeek the pimp, has been phenomenal. FF being on Steam is like...mind asplode cool. I'm involved deep and it's still cool, like how this just happened...

Can we have a count down timer on the forum banner or something.
Looking forward to it.

Im guessing we will need new server setup? or will there be a patch for existing srcds?

This thread doesn't have all the changes, but it's not too far off. Will definitely make a news post with the full changelog sometime this week.

What about for rented servers? I assume NFO will need to be contacted to make them aware of this change?

Can we simply copy all our .cfg files to the new FF cfg folder? Have any convars changed?

If mappers give permission, will you be able to share their maps and source online as well?

I saw that. I meant how do we get more maps on that list, like propinquity, ameliorate, etc.
