Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

No, ideas can't be copyright because they too much of abstract matter, at most they can be patent it, which i don't think Epic did that. What is copyrighted are trademark (game tile, logos) and all the content and there design inside fortnite as well as the code it self. But as long as you recreate that build system with your own content and design, it is ok to do so.

Besides it not like fotnite is a first game with wall-based building system, same as Minecraft is not first block-based building game (Roblox was before Minecraft :p)
