!!THROWBACK FORTRESS!! (v0.23a | FINALE COMING SOOOOOOOOON!)
« on: March 10, 2016, 06:55:09 pm »

"Welcome to Boarpaints! Oh, no, ignore the gory charred mess all over the gate, it's perfectly safe here with zero chance of unicorn-assisted forcible ventilation, gibbering insanity or dwarf-induced, catastrophic melting of everything."



Prologue:

!!THROWBACK FORTRESS!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The difference between 2D and 3D dwarf fortress is simply staggering. With the introduction of v0.30, caverns were introduced, the dwarven economy was removed, and the entire game's systems were given a complete overhaul.

So my proposition is that we go back to the days of Boatmurdered and give ol' v0.23a a go again! Will we survive? Will we prosper? Who am I kidding, we're all going to die horribly. But we can give it a try!

EDIT: We are using a patched .exe developed by quietust to deal with some annoying bugs. It is highly reccomended that you use it. To use it, simply replace your dwarf fortress exe with the one in the link below:

USE IT

Cool idea. I do have a suggestion that you may choose to ignore. Would you consider reviving this fort instead? It's pretty much the same premise, playing on the old 23a version. Good thing is you get to build on the chaos and madness of 15 previous overseers, instead of starting again from scratch.

Small note: instead of disallowing tilesets, just require they be uninstalled before handing them off?

Just to mention, Quietust has a number of useful EXE patches to fix bugs in 0.23a:

Problem with that is that some people genuinely do not understand how to uninstall certain graphics packs or sometimes even that they need to be uninstalled, and they may not even realise this until well after they've already installed the graphics, which leads to headaches. Better to just restrict us to basic ASCII as a precaution. Can I still use my custom tileset I made specifically for 40d/23a, though? It doesn't need the save or raws to be modified in any way.

Also, are there even any graphics installers compatible with 23a at all?

Gonna mull over whether I should request a turn for a bit, but in the meantime I would like to be dorfed. Mr Frog, male, any civvie profession, custom title: Average Citizen.
