Question regarding 64-bit modding
« on: June 12, 2017, 07:04:35 am »

Hey there all

I am back from a long hiatus and I am thinking about getting back into modding, however in my absence it appears something has happened regarding 64-bit Dorf-fortress.

I was wondering how developed the 64-big scene is and if modding for it is viable yet?

If so, could somebody point me in the direction of a 64-bit DF download?

And finally, if the 64-bit version is modifiable, is there anything a modder should know about regarding it i.e. differences in coding language ectra.

Thanks in advance.

Unless you use DFHack or therapist, there's literally no difference between modding 32bit or 64bit DF

Thanks for the quick response.

Regarding DFhack or therapist, are there 64-bit versions / alternatives to those systems or do they simply not work at the current time with 64-bit DF?

Was wondering since I have a rather ambitious mod that I am in the process of planning.

There are 64bit versions of both, but therapist is still unstable.

In any case, unless your mod depends on dfhack, there's no such thing as a 64bit mod, because they're all text files loaded by any version of the game.

Thanks for the assistance, hopefully I should be able to get the mod working with both with little trouble.
