...The average population in my past fortresses have always been 500-700 dwarves (or other humanoids, I'm not picky, as long as they're sentient and can carry out work orders, they become citizens), with the biggest one having had a population closing in on 1500 (pets not included)...

Holy carp, dem numbers. Your must either be a god of patience or have a quantum computer.

Most likely, both.

It's the patience. As long as things progress, I don't mind playing the game at 0-2 FPS (Mostly at 0 FPS when the creature count goes above 2000...). :)

0 to two FPS?!

WHAT!?

Isn't that absolutely torturous?

Genuinely, these are the four main categories of players I can think of.  People who make a fortress, people who make dwarves happy, people who conquer, and people who collect.

I'm a little bit of each, though conquest is usually just a means to architecture (HFS tavern) or hoarding (candy/artifacts.)

I am a 15 year player (15 years of playing DF, my biological age is much older). And my style is.

- Come back to the game after 2 years of hiatus.
- Play  the game for 2-3 days in Adventure mode.
- Make 2-3 huge mods which takes a few weeks of my life.
- Publish my mods and enjoy the feedback for a few weeks.
- Forget about Dwarf Fortress for another 2 years.

I cannot do much about it. I find modding more fun than playing, sadly.
I highly appreciate the customizable nature of the game, and amazing math and logical systems behind it.

P.S. I also find it really fun to read Community Fort stories and watch rare Dwarf Fortress youtubers.

You know, sometimes I like to imagine how would fantasy races really behave if they existed. And I think you just embody everything I imagined about how dwarves would actually be. You carefully planned the ENTIRE fortress before embarking.
That takes a certain amount of commitment, I'd say.
