Fortnite Creative v20.20 Update

4.19.2022
By The Fortnite Team

The v20.20 Fortnite Creative update adds the new Video Player, Water, and VFX Devices! Along with new devices, we’ve also added some additional Prefabs and Galleries and a brand new island to create on, the Greasy Grove Battle Royale Point of Interest! 

Prop Mover

The v20.10 update had a bit of a surprise in it, the Prop Mover! This device was released earlier than planned and in its current state should be considered a Beta device that we’re releasing to everyone. If you’re using the Prop Mover, understand that you might be asked to remove it from your map. For example: you’re featured in the Hub but the Prop Mover is causing performance issues. Additionally, some features that the Prop Mover currently has may change over time. We'll be taking your feedback into account, so let us know what you think!

For more information read the Fortnite Creative Documentation on the Prop Mover Device.

Fortnite Prop Mover Device

New: Video Player

All creators will now have access to the Video Player device, previously known as the Llamatron, which they can use to broadcast a set of preloaded music videos created by the talented xDogged. Creators can use just one or string them together for a totally unique music-led island experience.

New: Water Device

Creators can modulate the water level within a volume and allow for players to swim, use marine vehicle travel, as well as placement of fishing areas. This device could also be used to make oceans, beaches, swimming pools, sewers, lakes, and even floods.

New: Career Tracker

The new Career Tracker provides creators the ability to track more stats for players by adding these options to the Save Point Device. To enable the new Career Tracker, Creators will need to update to the Save Point Device and the scoreboard HUD.  A quick way of updating the scoreboard HUD is by cloning the scoreboard and changing it to Career. Once updated, players will be able to view career scores in the new Career Tab.

Fortnite Greasy Grove POI

Known issue: The thermometer memory won't display when a creator first loads into the POI. The workaround is to leave the island and enter in again. This should resolve the thermometer issue.
