First Impressions .40.01 AND BEYOND!
« on: July 07, 2014, 08:36:33 pm »

The stars have aligned and the gloried one has handed down the latest version with all the fun and !!FUN!! that entails. Bay 12ers what say you?

Honestly as stoked as I am about all the fortress based updates the first thing I did was check out the awesome new combat mechanics by kicking a man in the neck and watching it explode.

I haven't even played the vanilla yet, and even now looking at the new files is just fascinating. 

Really looking forward to finding out as much about this new game as I can. 

EDIT: Just started world-gen.  Really liking the new settlements, and I'm planning to start adventure mode to look around the new sites.  Being an avid modder, I really want to investigate how much you can do with all this new stuff.

Trees generate multiple logs now, as it turns out. 

I really must uncompress the saves and look at the random metals.

This is so exciting.


Going to create your standard dark lord adventurer dude (vampire-necromancer with ridiculous skills) then see if s/he takes over the world.

I want to tell you they were bad men, cephalo.  I want to tell you that with a better overseer the Fortress never would've gotten so bad someone would get offed in a pointless fisticuffs.
But the sad truth charlie?
It was inevitable.
