Did you get it from https://github.com/dfhack/dfhack/releases ? I got linux version from there and it worked for what I wanted to. Otherwise, might report it (preferably on github).

ive never used DFhack outside of LNP though so i was asking in case im just being ignorant on how to install and run it since on LNP its just always there

Install and run...For me, I just extracted it into df_linux and ran the extracted file named "dfhack" in terminal. But I think windows version might use an executable? (Never ran df in windows so far).

Extreme alpha. Caveat emptor!

manual installation:

copy the contents of the zip into your DF folder, letting it overwrite SDL.DLL.
copy/rename dfhack.init-sample to dfhack.init
run dwarf fortress

thanks, yeah i must have downloaded either the source or the linux version by mistake because this is a lot different.

and as long as it dosnt just spontaneously explode for absolutely no reason whatsoever i should be fine, i just use it to clean out owned items and locate all the blue metal

I mostly do aboveground human fortresses so it goes completely different for me.
1. Designate tree chopping and plant gathering
2. Build one big building, containing a dormitory and dining room for about 20 people
3. Carpenter's workshop, furniture for the building
3. Keep cutting trees, build a wall around a medium sized area surrounding the building
4. Build 2 small farms
5. Stockpile a big amount of food, drinks and wood
6. Improve defenses (unclimbable walls, drawbridges)
7. Build walls around a big area where my real fort will be
8. Build individual buildings for workshops, living etc.
9. Dismantle original fort
10. Expand the new one


Here is how my newest fort looks so far

Do y'all have a preference on whether or not your fort has an aquifer? I find that although they [usually] add an extra step to digging out your infrastructure, they make building (safe) water reservoirs fairly simple and easy.

Speaking of aquifers, I can't help but wonder how they'll affect enemy diggers/sappers when those eventually are introduced into the game.

I prefer to not have an aquifer, at least in my fort area - partial one in the edge is nice to have, though.

I've used both cave-in and double-slit to break through map-wide aquifers and the hassle is only a bit greater than securing a river or lake, but....I've forgotten about them few times after breaking through and flooded my fort built beneath them ^^;;

They'd be more important if I used water logic, I guess :P Atm, it is just fishing/misting/well/water reactor, all of which can be filled by bucket brigade from cavern or murky pool water :p

13. Begin employing the child workforce for agriculture, in harvesting food, booze and textile crops, in anticipation for their entry into the adult workforce.

By this point the Fortress should be ready to take on megaprojects with low casualties


Is it possible to burrow children into the farming area (with food/booze stockpiles), and ONLY the farming area?
