Dwarf fortress multiplayer
« on: August 09, 2017, 01:47:49 pm »

Hi,

No please don't start spamming how it's impossible...

Server running on:  Home pc Offline
Source code on: github + plugin needed

Features:
  • User management: users have username, password and unit
  • Unit control: click on map to move unit. Loose control as the unit goes into a rage and fights other units
  • New unit button!
  • Tilebased display (sorry no graphics yet)
  • Newest AJAX technolgy evah
  • Server autopauses if there is no players
  • Awesome arena action
  • Unit creation
  • Unit naming
  • Combat reports
  • Item buying. Kills give 5 money!
  • Numpad controls (thanks for idea KittyTac)
  • Highscore
  • Spectator mode
  • Chat , maybe with immersive distance to hear etc.. too lazy for the rest of it
  • Equip and haul items

TODO:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Bugs and other lack of features:
  • No encryption or https: use non-main passwords
  • Up ramps wonky
  • Slow startup: the game is on my HDD so please wait until it spins up if for some time it was idle
Roadmap:
  • Tactical mode: As spectator but also place units. This mostly needs clientside work
  • Co-op mode: Defend fort from waves of enemies
  • Fort mode: Play as existing or "visiting" units. Do (or not) jobs. Start (or not) jobs. Drink all the beer and pass out. Fun for community forts
  • Sometime in the future: adventure mode - not sure what to do with fog of war
Also i'm planning to include everything needed in next dfhack release.

Suggestions are welcome. Also i'm not a web dev so this should look awful for them :P

Thanks :). The fps is around 100 so it should be not too high. It might be too fast because there is no pause and it's making turns even if you are not doing anything. And yeah the z level navigation is strange, hopefully i'll think of something...

Sadly i don't use discord. I use irc though and am on #dfhack and #dwarffortress on freenode.

So yeah. Added creature creation and ramp walking (though walking up ramps is a little... strange)

Also suggest races and cost if you want them added.

Oh just try logging in. If that account does not exist, it just creates a new one.

Good but laggy. Maybe someday we will get something like this but with a pocket world. Even mid-grade computers will slow down to a crawl with that though, probably.

Actually i lowered fps so you could see what is happening. The other thing why it might look laggy is that the way i control creatures does not always work...

In other news: i've done items. Now you can add weapons to your creatures.

Edit: and armor and shields. Also increased fps to 50. Fights will be very chaotic. But maybe it's okay...
Edit2: probably need better arena...

I've also had some issues with requests to /map failing and requiring the page to be reloaded before the map updates again (although that could just be due to general internet connection issues on your/my end).

There was a typo in the siegers' campfire code. When the fires went out, so did the game.

whoa thanks-i could see myself fooling around with this alot on mobile. I took a bronze axe, slayed a couple kobolds and a bob, then vomited all over.  It was glorious. Now I just tried and it works pretty good from my phone browser even, and the size is almost better for the small screen...

Very Cool!

Just crashed :) but now it should be back up and hopefully fixed that bug.

I need to investigate a better control scheme. Maybe indicate more of what is happening (e.g. why your char is stuck?)

New version:
  • Added view up/down/reset
  • Added missle weapons (bow/crossbow). Currently it gives you 20 arrows/bolts if you select them
