There have been a few more spires like this one, including ones that are actually playable. This one is dead, Jim.

Of course I can't find any of them right now. Damnit.

Nope, just the sound of a glacier bumping into a boulder made out of volatile explosives.

Just encountered this for the first time, I'm not a heavy DF player or anything so I didn't know that it was "a thing". I had a collapse right at the the start of the embark and I was pleased to see that it was adamantine (on the surface no less, wow I must be really lucky). I hadn't played DF in over a year so I didn't think +900Z was out of the ordinary.

I started my initial dig with plan number one being building a bridge to get over the river to that adamantine. I was getting <5fps, so I tried toggling some options and restarting for about 30 minutes to no avail. I generated a new world and embarked. FPS was all right in that world, so it had to be something related to the other world itself. Around then it started to click that +900Z might be slightly out of the ordinary. I googled adamantine spire dwarf fortress on a hunch and wound up here.

I've decided to say "fuck it" and will just implode my fort.

Note that the post just prior to yours was four years ago, and the OP was two years before that.

You'll probably want to try loading it in one of the 2010 releases.

It seems like I have the right version, theres just no save file for the spire world in them.

Did you unzip the folder into data/save? Works fine for me.



Maybe it needs version 31.10, and won't work on anything else?

The folder I received unzipped into a copy of the game itself, unless I did something wrong?
