[YOU HAVE STRUCK...]

Dig Deeper DIAMOND - 750+ items of new content including; new plants, new creatures, new metals, new woods, new gems, new stones, new crafts and much, much more.

You can find the download here: Dig Deeper DIAMOND [Version 1.2]
DOWNLOAD AND PLAY... PRE-PACKAGED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE!



Welcome to the newest iteration of Dig Deeper! This project started long ago as a desire for me to write new materials into the game as I wanted to increase the variation between fortresses and even individual dwarves. Sooner or later I began to add other things such as new creatures and new weapons. Before long the additions began to become quite numerous and I decided to release Dig Deeper to the forums. Dig Deeper was created with specific goals in mind... These are to:

- Increase the variance in the content of the game.
- Increase the challenge to cater for more experienced users.
- Maintain the 'feel' of vanilla Dwarf Fortress.




Here is a complete list of all additions [and a partial list of the changes] that this modification makes to the base game:

I'm pretty good at pixel art, but I have no idea how DF's art palettes works.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing community forts which use the mod, thanks :). I'll be following closely! Be sure to drop back in to give me feedback on how you think the changes are.

I think it's the way towns develop now. In the beginning, people move into a town. Then they start producing tables, which results in more and more tables. Soon tables represent a significant portion of the population, they start lobbying for new laws and regulations, putting people to greater and greater disadvantage...

Great :).

You know that bamboo is also a grass, right? Something like "long bamboo" or "aged bamboo" would be better. Of course with a better name.

I like the idea of "[...] figurine" in the toy additions but this could be confusing with the "figurine of [...]" from crafts. Perhaps if the word 'figurine' was changed to 'doll' or 'model'?

What are your plans for the next version?

Expand on the base I've set myself. New metals, new woods, more creatures, etc. If there's an area anyone would like particular focus on let me know.

You know that bamboo is also a grass, right? Something like "long bamboo" or "aged bamboo" would be better. Of course with a better name.

Its considered to be a grass by some because of the manner in which it grows in the same way that some people categorise a tomato as a fruit even though we treat it as a vegetable so I'm not too sure about the name-change but I will give it somemore thought. Thanks for the suggestion!

I didn't even realise that you could make craft figurines... I hadn't played in awhile. Thank you for picking that up! In the next version I will rename all toy figurines to "dolls" and get rid of my generic doll entry.

I don't mind if it's considered a tree. But two plants with the same name is confusing, that's why I suggested it. I meant that bamboo is also a grass in DF, pandas eat it there.

Ah I see. Do pandas eat all grasses or just the bamboo grass? I may just remove the vanilla grass entity and stick with the wood one?

Pandas only eat bamboo grass, as far as I know.  Very hard to keep them alive if you don't have it, obviously.

Would you mind if I roll my Dwarven Hive mod into this when the next version of DF comes out?  I'm looking to roll it into a larger mod other than Genesis (not because Genesis is anything less than excellent, mind you - it's just what I've been playing with for a while so I'm looking for variety) and then doing a community fort.
