DF American civil war mod Proper release: now with cannibals
« on: February 19, 2021, 02:59:53 am »

In the history of all North America, few events hold as much importance or minds as the American civil war, the bloodiest in American history and the one that would decide the good and ills of the country for centuries to come. It was a time in which men of valour fought for both the worst causes and the best, Union men fighting to free their fellow man, and Rebels seeking to protect the institution of slavery. This mod seeks to recreate a fragment of that titanic struggle in Dwarf fortress, currently placing the player at the head of a small union outpost, training soldiers and launching daring attacks on the enemy, at the mercy of supply lines and sieges. Armies of confederate riflemen, banner bearers, and drummers will confront your outpost, and should the Union government or player make a mistake, Native Americans, British, or even Mexican troops could join them. As alluded to before, farming has been effectively removed for Union players in order to recreate dependency on supply lines, and instead one can produce material request lists at carpenters workshops. These are cheap to produce high-value tools that will effectively allow you to clear out caravans at little to no cost, allowing you to feed your Americans.

It has been brought to my attention that people using windows are not able to use this mod due to a "one of the compressed files on disk has errors" error, that I do not currently know how to fix. If anyone could help me figure out how to get around this issue, I would greatly appreciate it. b


this should work on all platforms now

just use the zip file, replace the objects folder of a base dwarf fortress game, and the world gen file of a base dwarf fortress game and it should work.

When I try to run it I get an error saying One of the compressed files on the disc has errors on it. Restore from backup if you are able

Could you please try running it with just the Raw folder then. If that doesn't have any issues, I'll know where to start looking to fix the overall issue

thanks to the feedback from saiyanwannabe, I have updated the file to hopefully fix the initial issue. Sadly, this has caused the removal of the civil war thhemed music for the moment

I've produced a minor update. A minor civ made up of escaped slaves will now appear in caves, and can be played as in adventure mode. A new type of spouse converting monster called cannibals has been added, some errors in the raws have been fixed, and I have increased the number of civilizations that can occur in world gen using the North America preset. Enjoy

This serves as a pre-generated file for the civil war mod, with North America's borders being mostly accurate. It will allow players to avoid the frustrating issues with world gen
