Forts are a piece of landscape used in fort mode. Two such forts are placed on the landscape in fort mode, usually close together to hit other hedgehogs from one fort to another, but far enough so that hedgehog can’t reach the other fort by jumping or walking. Prior to the game, each team has its own fort assigned to it in the team editor.

To create a fort, you have to create one or two graphics in PNG format, one for the fort on the left side and optionally (since 0.9.22) one for the fort on the right side. Normally these images are just mirrored, but you may want to apply some graphical tweaks for written text or shadows.
