I happened to blunder into the article on 1d4chan. Followed its link to Boatmurdered.

Fairly certain my classmates (had read a large chunk in the latter half of a computer class) though i had gone insane cause I kept getting the giggles after reading it.

Read through to Genmclod, and started playing religiously since just before the 34.01 release.

I remember seeing a minecraft dwarf fortress texture pack a long time ago.

I also recall a tool that would export DF fort maps into Minecraft.

Maybe people should love for the sake of loving, and not with all of these optimization conditions.

yes, but it had some unbearable flaws.

No, there was another one that would export the actual forts.

oh, that sounds amazing - but we already had the discussions on how the DF blocks/tiles should be represented in MC and it is rather difficult to make it look nice and be representive at the same time.

It did look pretty good, actually, but it lost compatibility with any modern DF version, and nobody updated it.

ah, i guess i know which one you mean.
its main flaw was that it let MC generate villages etc over the existent DF world.
but we're deriving... :D

Somebody used it on Towersoared, IIRC.

That's not the one. You're thinking of the one that would export a df world map.

That said......

I don't exactly remember how I discovered Dwarf Fortress, but I have a vague memory of googling for some ASCII rogue-likes that are still being developed (this was around 2012 or something). In the 80's/90's I had played Moria/Angband/ADOM/etc. quite a lot and had some kind of nostalgic urge to play something similar when I stumbled upon DF and immediately thought "this is exactly what I've been looking for my whole life."

Coincidentally, I take my project's name from this story.
