Fortnite has made multiple changes to make building easier with objects and land in the way.

The first major change was having objects be destroyed by the structure being built. This made it so much easier to loot houses and build quickly in the early game.

Another change that helped a lot was having two structure be auto-built when the design was mostly covered by the terrain. This prevented the annoying half walls that would always occur in Loot Lake and made building just a bit easier.

Clearly Epic is aware of these small changes and the effect they can have.

A new suggestion follows those themes and would have edit squares show up when a player is trying to change a wall next to an object, wall or mountain in the game.

This suggestion was posted by BrocoriBoi to Reddit and they modeled what this would like in the game.

Edit Squares Should Appear Through Terrain from r/FortNiteBR

Editing is one of the highest level skills Fortnite has to offer and improving the options to edit is good for competitive Fortnite.

The other benefit of this is that it allows players to move on muscle memory and not be stopped by the terrain around them.

The best Fortnite players are hardly thinking as they build, it’s just reactions built out over months and months of practice.

Anything that interferes with that flow will cause issues for pro players and this is a prime example of an easy fix that will help with the game.

What do you think? Is this something you want to see added to the game?
