DF Succesion Game? (And what is DF)

in #dwarf6 years ago (edited)

Hi guys.

So, I am a new member of the Steemit community and so I´m starting out with some ideas. Steemit seems pretty interesting to me at his very beginning.

But, to me, something is missing out.

A Dwarf Fortress succesion game!

Don`t be scared because of the bad graphics the game has, DF has a lot of complexity added to it.

Yes, I know that a few had already made their post regarding their (mis)adventures at this game, but what Im proposing is a full-blown sucession game between the community, Boatmurdered-style

So? what do you think?


Q: So. What is Dwarf Fortress?
A: Dwarf Fortress (Full title: Slaves to Armok: God of Blood - Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress) is a fantasy simulator thatis broken in two modes (plus another one, that is not a game):

  1. Dwarf Fortress: The most popular one, being the focus of many other sucession games, as well as this one. Its somewhat like a ridicously complex hybrid between Dungeon Keeper and The Sims, or, to keep it simple, a base building game

  2. Adventurer: An freeform Roguelike in which you play as a single adventurer (don´t worry, you can recruit more later, but no multiplayer) searching for glory

  3. Legends: Where you can read about historical events, people, etc, that happened in your randomly generated world.

Q: Where can I download DF?
A: At http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/index.html

Q: I heard you made a mention of "Boatmurdered". What is it?
A: An famous DF succesion game LP. Read it here: https://lparchive.org/Dwarf-Fortress-Boatmurdered/

Q: It seems an heavily confusing game. Can i get info somewhere?
A: At the wiki (http://www.dwarffortresswiki.org/)

Q: When do you plan to start this succesion game?
A: December 15th, but I don´t have any definite plans

Q: Which version are you going to use?
A: 0.44.02

Q: How do I send the save?
A: 1: Go to the folder where you unzipped DF

(Note that you have to manually create a folder and name it as you like. I named mine "DF")

2: Go to "data"

3: You should find another folder called "save". Open it

4: If you already created a new world, it should appear as "region1"

5: Post the save at a archive host service (like http://dropcanvas.com/) and get it to whoever is next
