I wouldn't mind playing that.

maybe make horses the only MOUNT creature, so seiges and invaders ride horses. I'd get the pikes out to counter that cavlary

I'll probably stick with the same time frame as the original game.

I'm going to make a first pass on everything first, but that is a good idea for the finer tuning of the mod.

This is Dwarf Fortress. Where torture, enslavement, and murder are not only tolerable hobbies, but considered dwarfdatory.

Unless I've installed this incorrectly, All the various megabeasts and night creatures are still here.

Though I guess some of them are hard coded into the game.

Night creatures you must disable through worldgen, titans as well.

They are still there, but since there is only one entity and they have a different site preference than dwarves these animals may not show up as often during embark preparation.

I'll add a custom world gen file in the next update.
