BUILD MODE TRACKING / SWITCH MODE
 
BUILD MODE TRACKING is a setting that prevents interference from MODS while you are building and editing.  It will track or presses and the many actions that you perform as you move in and out of the build and edit menu, as well as some other menus.
 
  • In BUILD MODE, a YELLOW LIGHTBAR / LEFT LED BANK will indicate CONTROLLER MODS are SUSPENDED.  This will also occur during inventory management, emote and squad comms, and when opening the menu or map.
     
  • While we do our best to prevent Build Mode Tracking from losing sync with your game, it can happen, especially if you walk away from a piece that you are editing, edit without a piece to edit, or when you are rebooting, or respawning in game modes such as Team Rumble.
     
  • Using an aggressively low Edit Hold Time such as 0.100, or removing "/ Edit" from "Switch Mode" (UNSUPPORTED) will also make it especially difficult for Build Mode Tracking to stay in sync.
     

 
In MOD Central, we recommend using Improved Tracking.  If however, your in-game "Confirm Edit on Release" setting is set to ON, you will need to select the Confirm Edit on Release variant of Improved Tracking.
 
The Legacy Tracking options are very similar to the previous Build Mode Tracking in the Fortnite (Legacy) GAMEPACK.  This does however have a higher chance of losing sync.
 
The MOD Toggle on Build option is predictable but significantly less convenient.  Each time you build or edit anything, you will need to switch back to your pickaxe to resync your MODS.  This also applies to opening up inventory management, the menu, or the map.
 
And lastly, the Disabled option ignores your in-game build state, but clears Weapon AI Pro detections when you build, edit, or enter menus, while trying its best to suspend MODS that would interfere until a new weapon is detected.
 
  • WARNING:  The Disabled option is ONLY intended as a last resort for players whom are uncomfortable with any of the available tracking options.  Some MODS, including SHOT MODE MODS can cause issues while building.  You will likely have to remap or unbind controls, such as "Rotate Piece", or disable MODS that are causing too much bother.
 

 
HIGHLY IMPORTANT:  IF YOU ARE USING AN IN-GAME CUSTOM CONTROLLER CONFIGURATION, SWITCH MODE MUST BE SET TO "SWITCH MODE / EDIT" OR "SWITCH MODE", DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU HAVE SETUP IN-GAME.
  • SETTING THIS CORRECTLY WILL SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THE TRACKING FEATURE.
     

 
BUILD MODE TRACKING RESYNC METHOD:
 
Whichever Build Mode Tracking option that you are using, for rebooting in normal gameplay, respawning in Team Rumble, walking away from a piece that you are editing, edge cases, etc...
 
  • Either when you are parachuting (NOT diving), or when you are on the ground, quickly switch to your pickaxe and back.  This will keep Build Mode Tracking from losing sync and your MODS from being unexpectedly toggled off in combat.
