Halp FP, my stoneworker got taken by a fey mood, claimed the craftdwarfs workshop, and keeps muttering his own name, what do I do?
Drown chamber him. He will come back to life through a child who will have a fell mood, and kill his closest friend.
oh, nevermind, I just didn't see the mysterious construction message pop up, he made a crappy stone doll.
[QUOTE=Libertas;17852410]I think it's a job manager.[/QUOTE] Yes, it is.
This looks too complicated to play :saddowns:
I have begun the great canal project, that is, re routing a river to run underneath a large plaza type are I built so I can build a well there and have unlimited fresh flowing water without having to leave the safety of my fort.
Funny I've never really lost a game of dwarf fortress. I usually just get swamped with tons of work to do i.e. organization stuffs. Mostly after the constant ambushes that seem to be getting more violent and costly every month. Oh great 4 swords men/farmer/miner/chefs die in battle now I have to re-configure my dwarfly work program. That usually means I have to take some unlucky suckers off of stone hauling duty (and further slow the completion of my giant towering Citadel) and give them weapons and toss them outside the fortress walls to die. I find the need to make giant structure's with rock solid defense, and all things needed to keep my dwarfs happy and alive a priority. To bad I get bored, and tiered of putting up with the random craziness that will happen "Hauling Stone" example "Manly dwarf has starved to death while stupidly trapping himself between the outside walls of the tower. I love this game Oh and a pro tip "Be a slave driver no breaks till the job gets done!"

I still have my enclosed-by-a-big-stone-wall fort but it's gotten to the point where the surface area enclosed by the wall is devoid of all life (and trees :( ) and covered in things like vomit and blood. Also, although my military are all super elite gods of war and can hold the one entrance into my fort, they are near constantly ambushed by squads of goblins who end up making large piles of blood and organs in front of my fort. I've pretty much stopped playing it because it's just SO DAMN MESSY.

Hey Thorny, I should've mentioned earlier, but your Dwarf Companion link is wrong, version 16 is out now.
I think my mayor is actually a walrus, he just mandated the construction of 3 buckets. then after that he forbade the export of buckets.
DF seems so unpopular with only 2 pages worth of posts.. I shall cheer DF and its makers up by creating the greatest fort ever and then, on purpose, killing everyone inside. :cheers:

~Images went down~ Dead links nothing to see here.
Who would like another attempt at a succession game?
My first and only successful fortress has only existed for 8 Dorf years and maybe several real months. [media]http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/7333/arancerol2.jpg[/media] My main source of wealth was the fact that a huge portion of my world is Limestone and thus worth 2x the value of normal constructed or carved buildings and so I got a huge population literally by smoothing and engraving my fortress. I love my Legendary Engravers. Then shit got real when I started pumping out garbage artifacts and steel armour and weapons. I have yet to mine the HFS which I found on the lowest levels of the world far from my fortress. [media]http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/6882/dorffort6.jpg[/media] Suddenly, Goblins, everywhere. (The only good Goblin is a dead Goblin)
[QUOTE=Rofl my Waff;17857533]I posted my fortress in the last thread like 4 months ago and I'm just now getting back into it so I'll post some of it again.[/QUOTE] Since when did you become a Gold member? >.>
Mildly laughed at the title.
Where do the above 2 posters(ones that posted pic) get their tilesets from? I'm experimenting and looking for something good that I can easily get used to.
I get mine from the wiki and the forums.

I'll try getting back to this game again. Looks like there are more mods since I last came here.
I built a four story above ground tower with a deep thick moat of water around it to prevent diggers. It does quite well.
I can't be arsed to start a fort in this version, waiting for the new one to restart my interest. [editline]12:22PM[/editline] Fort Lightblockade :banjo: [IMG]http://i35.tinypic.com/2itft6s.png[/IMG]
[QUOTE=CivilProtection;17854458]What I meant is why is there a phrase beside "dwarf fortress" in each of these threads?[/QUOTE] It's just something to get people interested in looking at the thread in the first place. = [editline]01:28PM[/editline] [QUOTE=genkaz92;17853423]Would you kindly tell me what types of screenshots you are interested in.[/QUOTE] Anything really, preferably with the default tileset and of something exciting or cool.
Take a few boatmurdered pics.
I built a statue garden outside but because of cave adaptation it just got filled with vomit.
hahahahahaha, oh wow.
Like others, I'm waiting for the new version until I play again. Although I'm sure it will be filled with all kinds of bugs at start, since it adds heaps of stuff...then again, I'm pretty sure they will be hilarious.
