Ever since Fortnite Creative became a thing, content creators have been making designs with the hopes of catching Epic’s eye.
Whether they are Featured Islands or designs for The Block, getting official recognition from Epic is the main goal for all people who are dedicated to Fortnite Creative.
Previously a lot of designs were just slapped with the #FortniteBlockParty hashtag and then sent out to the wind. That was considered one of the best ways to grab Epic’s attention.
Now they have a better way to make sure their design is submitted the right way.

A Google Doc form has been set up for content creators to fill out and send directly to Epic.
They addressed this change and laid out more criteria in a blog post which is copied in its entirety below:
The Creative community has grown with tremendous haste these past few months, and with it the amount of amazing content in the ecosystem. We’re excited to present an official way to submit your content directly to Epic for review. Now is your chance to be featured in-game!
Click here to head to the official content submission page. On this page, you can submit your block or featured island creations.
Before you do, make sure you review the guidelines for Featured Islands and The Block below.
FEATURED ISLAND GUIDELINES
What we’re looking for when reviewing Featured Island submissions:
- Your island is a game.
- We’re looking for a mix of game types. Your island can be a multiplayer, coop, pvp, solo, puzzle, parkour experience or something totally new. Innovate!
- It has clear game rules.
- It is easy to understand.
- The map is aesthetically pleasing.
- It is unique and is ultimately your own work.
- Contains no inappropriate content.
- Does not include any images, artwork, sculptures, structures, logos, words, phrases, lyrics or music that are under copyright or trademark, as well as any content that was not created solely by you.
What we’re looking for when reviewing Block submissions:
- A unique aesthetic theme / style.
- A unique and original level design.
- Thoughtful set dressing for both interior and exterior zones.
- Dynamic and interesting player pathing throughout the zones.
- Significant landmarks that players can use for orientation and callouts.
What we avoid when reviewing Block submissions:
- Large, empty interiors.
- Unoriginal designs & remakes of old Battle Royale locations.
- Too many resources available.
- For example, don’t place massive amounts of Wood, Stone or Metal in a concentrated location.
- Zones that are difficult for players to fight in.
- For example, tight spaces with limited mobility or areas that don’t take line of sight into account.
- Poor player pathing and navigation.
- Any images, artwork, sculptures, structures, logos, words, phrases, lyrics or music that are under copyright or trademark, as well as any content that was not created solely by you.
Below are a few more notes to keep in mind when creating your block submission.
- Pick a style and stick with it. If your design requires multiple themes to achieve a particular style, that’s totally ok.
- It’s ok to push boundaries and try something that looks different. Think about what makes your block stand out amongst the other submissions.
- Do not place any vehicle spawns in your level.
- Chests should be in recognizable, landmark locations. Examples:
- The center of an open courtyard.
- Behind discoverable, destructible objects.
- On top of a statue.
- Add one Block Chest to your creation. Ideally, this is in an interesting location that encourages discovery
- Keep in mind, the level design team may adjust the quantity or location of any loot spawns on The Block if we feel it will improve player experience.
- Be mindful of prop density. You don’t want players to get stuck on furniture as they are exploring an interior zone.
- Lead players to easily discoverable loot opportunities. Example, the audio from a chest hidden in an attic can be heard in rooms close to the attic.
- Gigantic sculptures can be an awesome thematic centerpiece, just make sure they can be traversed and work well with our core mechanics (building, looting, destruction, etc).
- Keep the normal Battle Royale rules in mind. Players can build and destroy anything.
- Using the entire space of the Block is not required
- Don’t overload the map with too many lights within close proximity to each other
- Be mindful of players with epilepsy. In general, stay away from over the top flashing lights.
- If we pick your Block, we aren’t required to attribute it to you or compensate you.
- Anything you submit to us is subject to the Epic Games End User License Agreement which means, among other things:
- Epic has the right to make use of anything you submit to us for any purpose, including for commercial purposes, without any compensation or notification to, or permission from, you.
- Epic isn’t obligated to use anything you submit to us.
- Epic isn’t responsible or liable for what others do with your submission
Fortnite Creative player recreates iconic Mario Kart track
A talented Fortnite Creative player has recreated an iconic Mario Kart track in the world’s most popular battle royale game.
A seasoned Creative player has brought an unofficial Nintendo collab to Fortnite with their recreation of an iconic Mario Kart track.
Fortnite’s Creative mode is one of the game’s most versatile modes. Sweaty player use it to grind and get batter. Artistic players use Creative to build beautiful and interesting maps. And it’s used by Epic Games to host unique crossover events.
However, players can also create their own game modes in Creative. In fact, some players recreate portions of their favorite games in Fortnite Creative.
That’s the case for Reddit user itsZayowo who recreated an iconic Mario Kart map inside of Fortnite. And you can play on it right now!
Fortnite x Mario Kart Creative map
User itsZayowo posted their recreation of Donut Plains 3 to the r/FortniteCreative subreddit. The near-perfect recreation of the iconic track comes complete with water features, multicolor walls, and hazards.
You can play on the map by using Island Code 9469-2123-7106. If you don’t want to cough up $60 for Mario Kart 8, grab a few friends and hit up this astounding track.
Donut Plains has made an appearance in three Mario Kart games. It first appeared in Super Mario Kart in 1992, and is also in the most recent title Mario Kart 8.
However, the Fortnite Donut Plains 3 map resembles the Super Mario Kart track more than its most recent iteration. While it does miss some ornaments, players can see various Toad statues dotted around the map.

How to earn free Creative Mayhem cosmetics in Fortnite
Fortnite has launched the Creative Mayhem competition, and participants can easily earn two free cosmetic items.
A new creative competition has launched in Fortnite called Creative Mayhem. Players who sign in and participate in the challenge will earn the free Creative Mayhem cosmetics.
Every so often, Fortnite will launch a special creative event. These challenges pit players against one another but not in the same way that the Battle Royale does. Previous creative events have featured community-made obstacle courses and team game modes.
Creative game modes aren’t always favored by the community, so Fortnite throws in a few free cosmetic items to draw players in. These are earned by spending time in the featured game modes, finding hidden objects, and completing challenges.
Unlocking the free Creative Mayhem cosmetics
There are two cosmetic items that players can earn during the Fortnite Creative Mayhem event. The Golden Flopper Spray is earned by visiting creativemayhem.fortnite.com and signing in to your Epic Games account. The spray will be given to the player the next time they launch Fortnite.
Next, players will need to spend 30 minutes on the Creative Mayhem Regional Qualifier map. The code for the map is 1994-6642-9073. After 30 minutes, return to the lobby and you will be rewarded with Piranhas Pickaxe.
The Creative Mayhem map is a parkour obstacle course that times players as they run through it. Players can upload and submit their best runs to the Creative Mayhem website for a chance to move on to the next round. There are also monetary prizes for those who place high enough throughout each round of the competition.
For most players though, free cosmetics will be enough. The Golden Flopper spray is a reminder of the elusive fish, and the dual-wielded pickaxe is a nice addition to any collection. Participating in the event is also a great way for players to learn more about how their characters move and interact with objects.
If this event doesn’t seem too interesting, Fortnite is always cooking up something new for players. The basketball themed event should be here sometime next week. But in the meantime, players should make sure to claim their free Creative Mayhem cosmetics.
