Fortnite Creator is Buying Thousands of Acres of Forest to Stop It From Being Cut Down
Creator of the online video game Fortnite, Tim Sweeney, has been captivating audiences for decades by developing intricate and interactive digital worlds for players. However, it is his work away from the screen that is currently grabbing attention from gamers and non-gamers alike.

Sweeney is best known for founding the video and 3-D software company Epic Games in the 1990’s. Epic Games has given us popular video game titles such as Unreal Tournament, Gears of War and, most recently, the massively popular game Fortnite. In addition to these popular gaming titles, the billionaire philanthropist has made good on his promise to protect undeveloped and bio-diverse land in the picturesque western Carolina mountains for future generations.

Since 2008, Sweeney has spent millions on conservation projects in his home state of North Carolina to protect and preserve its forest land. He has purchased nearly 40,000 acres over the last decade, making him one of the largest private land owners in the state. Sweeney has also donated money to several conservation parcel projects, including a 1,500 acre expansion to Mount Mitchell State Park.

I am a UE4 developer myself... only got back into it after a 15 year hiatus.

Good on him. Unreal is free to use until you make something like 500k with it and then you have to pay licensing.

Really good people at that company for sure.

This is a project I am working on in UE4, posted it recently so sorry for redundancy.

I really want to say this is a good thing, but a couple of things came to mind.

Trying too hard to save certain habitats is a big part of what happened in the CA fires that destroyed it. Or maybe it was part of the plan.

Maybe by buying up the forest and making it all private land, it may help in driving people into the cities per Agenda 21/2030.

But what do i know? I'm not rich, except maybe more so in common sense than a lot of people supposedly "in the know".
