How far will dwarfs migrate
« on: April 09, 2024, 03:53:52 pm »

Hello
Noob question coming.  How far will dwarves migrate to my fortress?  If i pick a decent size population but find a spot on the other side of map, would they come is basically what I am asking.  Would the migrant waves be few and far between?
Thanks

Migrants come no matter the distance, but if you are on a different continent from your civilization then the game will only give you two migrant waves made from newly generated dwarves without existing families. (Normally migrant waves are exclusively made from historical figures, and histfigs almost always have existing families.)

Actually historical figures and additional migrants will still come. What can stop that is if they all died somehow, and so the civ was dead. If there are no playable civs in the world that still exist, you can embark as a dead civ, and they won't get additional migrants or caravans in certain circumstances.
