Title: Uncle Samog wants YOU for the Orbsfeast Army! (imagefest)
Post by: Samog on November 25, 2006, 11:50:01 am
THE NEW FORTRESS STARTS HERE (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=7722.msg285614#msg285614)

Dwarf Fortress is probably a game that you've seen and passed over because it's
But wait! Now you don't have to play it! Instead, you can just enlist right over there and I'll switch out some names.
No actual effort or participation is required*!

You should probably keep two things in mind:

If you want to show your dwarven patriotism, stick this in your signature:

Also, if for some reason you actually want to play Dwarf Fortress, you can get it here. (http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/)

*Seriously, you don't have to do anything. Just submit a name and watch the zany adventures of your alter-ego.

By "elite marksdwarf," "mechanic," and "hammerlord," do you mean "butcher," "farmer," and "fisherdwarf?" Those are the ones I started with.

You'll probably be wondering what the hell is going on, so I'll try to explain what stuff is as I progress.

Those who are about to die...
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/roll.jpg)
We salute you.

First, I sent Lual to pick through solid rock for several months straight without food, water, or sleep.
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/lual.jpg)
Meanwhile, everyone else sat around outside and maybe cleared some rocks.
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/fidelis.jpg)
Vivec, being far too manly for this group, set out on her own to hunt some unicorns. This is why we can't have dogs anymore.
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/rooms.jpg)
Lual's been busy what with the digging out dining rooms and workshops and kitch- OH NO WHAT'S THAT!
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/foks.jpg)
A fox! (I think Khaz Rhoz Zek carries a battleaxe around but whatever)
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/yayvec.jpg)
Vivec (who hasn't been inside the fortress through rain and snow and sleet) swoops down and saves the day. Those elongated green things are trees, by the way.
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/dig.jpg)
While we were gone, Lual became rich I guess

(This is the part before I get an anvil or snakemen to kill)

Let's start on a positive note. I found Vivec's dog.
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/dog.jpg)
A unicorn attack? I... how bad is it? The kidney, you say? Oh. Oh dear.
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/dogg.jpg)
A short while later, Vivec carries the corpse of something beginning with a "d" back to the fortress.
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/anvil.jpg)
An anvil! I wonder what we can do with that?
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/efficiency.jpg)
Lual's been digging rooms for people to make things for us to trade for food.
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/caravan.jpg)
Here comes the lamest caravan ever. A dwarf and a mule. Also, they can't trade because the trading post is under construction :( (note also vivec's dog)

I will use my amazing abilities to predict that exactly one dwarf will die before winter ends.

If we had mushrooms we could make some beer. Mushroom beer.

Here you can see the kitchen wing. Clockwise from the top: Dining room, kitchen, butcher shop, furniture storage, still, fishery, and food storage.

(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/enertron.jpg)
If you look at the food storage you'll notice that it's almost empty. What you can't tell is that what's there is barrels of mushroom spores and some blobs of tallow.
(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/Mancordun/dorf/hoss.jpg)
This is the part where I remembered I had a horse. So I killed it before it could realize what was going on. Its noble sacrifice helped seven dwarves survive the winter. NEVAR FORGET

Stone, the final frontier.

These are the voyages of the dwarf miner Lualmoba, her five-year mission to explore strange new tunnels, to seek out new rocks and new metals, to boldly dig where no dwarf has dug before.

Note: He can't simply pop up specialists out of the blue. Thats impossible in the game so picking something far away will take a long time to get such as a King which is like the highest and most valued unit... Also in the beginning its best to have workers (Farmer, Miner, Mason, Carpenter, Etc) Eventually you get that anvil and a metalsmith unit. So some of you guys will take a while to implement because right now he doesn't have that kind of unit just yet. K?

Does anyone know what the game uses to determine if a cave-in is going to occur?

QFMT

And it's either 7x7 is too big, or 7x7 is the biggest without a support.

Is there any more space for me? I'll be Serdun the farmer, if you want. It seems as if you need some more food, what with the starving and the death and all...

For my own fortress, I'm having trouble getting enough food. Any pointers? I've got a kitchen and a butchery, and constantly tell the guys to make meals. I also pick a lot of seeds and whatnot, I even resorted to butchering my mule (that's all its good for, right?) Once I get a farm it might be easier, but anyone can share any ideas as to hunting and just how to get more food in general?

I may not survive the winter (2nd try) because I figured out how to trade just as the trade caravan left, so I didn't get any food from them.

I actually found hunting is pretty good in certain areas. Elephants are always a problem, but having spare leathers handy is always good. Its best not to just set someone to hunt and leave them alone. Set them, watch over them where you can, then deactivate it after they make a kill and are hauling their prize back. Its a good way to toughen your dwarves earlier on, though they dont really get much weaponskill out of it (melee), it at least sends them outdoors more often, and prevents developing "daylight sickness".
