Simple Fortress
« on: February 17, 2011, 08:21:26 pm »

Simple Fortress is just a slightly tweaked world generator and embark that allows your dwarves to carry far more supplies initially.

Also the starting abilities of your dwarves have been selected to some useful professions.

This is designed to give you plenty of time (A couple years) to learn the ropes and how to handle your fortress without the initial pressures that are usually placed on a fortress.

With food and drink taken care of, with simple weapons and armors already supplied, and with plenty of raw materials you can take your time and learn how the intricate industries of dwarf fortress interact.

http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=3802

Just download and unzip into your dwarf fortress directory.   

Then Generate a new world using "Simple Fortress" World preset.  (It increases the embark points and also makes the world a bit less extreme)

Then When you play choose "Simple fortress" As the embark profile and you will have a large amount of goods per-selected that should make your initial years far less hectic.

*** Updated to be compatible with 0.34.06 ***
Tweaked worldgen prams.
Tweaked embark skills slightly.


*** Updated to be compatible with 0.31.21 ***
Added mineral frequency to the file
Added some more of the newer industries requisite animals
Added hematite back in since it is likely it will be available at embark
switched from limestone to Marble as the flux as it seems to be available far more often.
Tweaked down temperature a bit more.

Tested the .31.21 update and it appears to be decently working with it.

It increases the embark points
No kidding.

Looks good for testing purposes, will try it with .19. Have you thought about putting a link in your sig so that non-modders will see it?

Honestly at the time, I didn't see what could go wrong with crowding 80 military Dwarves into a small room with a necromancer for the purpose of making bacon.

Actually I have not, but that is a good point, the people most likely who will be having problems learning the ropes and the like would not come here first.

Hrm... I must ponder this as I also rarely post out of this forum and most would not see my sig.

My suggestion is that you at least make a simple post into the questions forum (with nice easy explanations) in order to try to bring this to beginner's attention. With luck enough people will start to use it that it should float to the top of the forum for a while and become a little bit popular.

It would be brutally difficult and probably won't work. In other words, it's absolutely dwarven!

I changed the world generation parameters.

Which is also the reason you have to generate a new world.

I'd love to try it out but I'm getting a 502 bad gateway error.
I think that means the download server is down. Guess I'll wait!

DFFD is back up, creating a new world now...
Works well on the current version. Great job!
