Now, the purpose of this thread is to build up the fort collection, I'm hoping to get at least 20 unique flags in the next version. The vast majority of these will be drawn by myself and other established contributors.
However, we'd like to invite you to draw your own. We only have 12 forts at the moment, including 2 forts I want to remove. So we really need more.

Consider carefully how the design of your fort will affect gameplay!

A warning before you consider submitting a fort:

Not all forts will be accepted, no matter how hard you work on them. If the fort doesn't pass my personal quality standards, or doesn't fit the "Hedgewars graphics style" it won't be included in the official release. I would suggest that anyone who would be particularly heartbroken about their fort not being officially included should probably not submit one. I'm very picky and have high standards. That said - I will be offering aid and advice to anyone who's interested in taking part!

What about a Birdy fort? Tiyuri, you could use the svn of your Avatar for it.

Those two look really nice, maybe they're a bit off general game style?

Castle could use a little more detail too, looks too sketchy imo. Also, maybe it would be a good idea to paint inside windows and doors, if a hog spawns inside there it would be trapped (unless you're going for ultra-fortified hogs).

Thanks =)

I'll take your advice and see what I can do.

As for hogs spawning inside windows and entrance; it would be an advantage in some fort game types but of course a disadvantage in others... It should balance out I feel.

I would also like to see decent forts maps as well. I was involved in setting up a map pack for worms 2 in the early 00's for forts. is it possible if i can gather the files that we could see them submitted here? these would be legitimate forts maps where each side is a mirror image and are completely separated unlike many of the submissions above.

before i go about un extracting the .lev files and fixing them a bit i want to make sure its ok to re-use old maps that have seen action in worms

You are welcome to submit for inclusion content that is owned and created by you and that you have no problem releasing into the public domain.

Of course it has to fit the style guidelines.

I was thinking maybe a pirate ship or skipper ship or something as a fort? it would be a nice addition.

edit: sorryyyy D: but seriously, who wouldn't want a ship? (I suck at drawing, otherwise I'd try.)

Check out the forts of MeinCookie95, they are really cool. I just now figured out the links are not broken. Here's a screenshot of two forts to show you what you're missing:

But you need a software to extract the proprietary RAR format. For GNU/Linux and Mac OS users I recommend The Unarchiver (command name: unar) which is free software.


I have made three new forts based on Hedgewars SVG images for the themes. The links point to the HWP files, just drop these into the Data/ directory.




Snail_v1

SVG source: Snail_v1L.svg (modified snail from Nature theme)

License: GNU FDL v1.2




CaveCrystals_v1

License: GNU FDL v1.2




Olympic_v1

License: GNU FDL v1.2


By the way: No fort has been added to the game since ages. It's about time, isn't it?
