Does anyone on /tc/ play Dwarf Fortress? I havea pretty good fort going at the moment with 147 dwarves. I intend for this to be a military based fort with only 60 or so of the population doing work and the rest as military.

So far its going excellently. Even though its around 100 dwarves short of my largest fort ever (probably because I have births disabled), i'm at nearly 24000000 created wealth and expecting the king in the next migrant wave.

There won't be a tileset out for a day or so at least, but I can recommend Phoebus'. ASCII with a truetypt font is quite nice, if you can't wait. I use DejaVu Sans Bold.



My first adventure character in the new version has started out pretty well. I wandered around a town for a while before departing. The first fort I came across had an enormous stockpile of armour and clothes, so I robbed them blind while nobody was in the room then got out fast. I'm in a mixture of iron and bronze gear now. After noticing you need to eat and drink now, I ran out of food and drink fast. I couldn't find any shops in the nearest town, so I stole a big stack of berries from some poor guy's house and filled up a load of waterskins at well.

I noticed a big purple tower on the map, so decided to go to it. Opened the door and got shouted at by a master necromancer and his apprentice. Yes, all of those Blue Ñs are raised corpses.

--
Welp, after posting that I got torn to shreds in a matter of seconds. I'm not exactly sure how you kill raised corpses. I got one of those 'shattering the skull and tearing apart the brain' hits on a corpse's head at one point and nothing happened. They don't bleed either, so getting rid of limbs doesn't seem to do a thing. Perhaps you need to kill the necromancers? I never even got to one of them before I was overwhelmed.

I've been using my guybrush tileset ever since 40d and ran into no problems at all.

Haven't really experienced the new update yet. Adv mode seems massive fun right now, though.
Also set up a new fort, but put it on hold as soon as the first migrants arrived, dwarf therapist is addicting.
>> No. 6090 [Edit]

I did that too. I've become far too reliant on Therapist and DFHack. This update changed a lot, so I'm not expecting a release any time soon.

For now, adventure mode!

New update has come in. Newest features include segmentation faults, kamikaze birds and paranoid schizophrenia coupled with dissociative identity disorder.
Also big trees, fruits, world activation and it was inevitable.

Playing adventurer exclusively until most crashes are fixed and new Therapist is out.

The layered approach sounds interesting, given that it's mechanically decent. The risk and rts mode sounds interesting. Is it possible to ramp up the difficultly? I don't like the sound of betting op by default in battle mode. Otherwise I like the setting. Is the politics dumb or just amusing from time to time. Sorry about all these questions, you don't have to answer if it's a bother.
>> No. 10712 [Edit]
>>10711
it's got bugs up the ass.
Bugs would range from being unable to produce units as the progress bar would go on forever. being unable to use unit's ablitys, units not responding to any orders, units not attacking other units but instead just running up to them for hugs or some shit. seage tank style units getting stuck half way into the ground which cuased them to damnage themselfs when firing. matchs that didn't even end after dystroying every enemy/base and not ending till I cap their zones even when nothing is built there.

I personally play the game on the hardest difficulty and avoid using the dragon as much as I can yet it's only a challenge at the start of matches. it could be becuase it's my play style but if/when I get past the first few attacks I can establish decent defenses and wait the enemies out. The AI can be predictable and easy to exploit. Even on hard mode it's not uncommon for ai to randomly become inactive for no visible strategic reason.

The politics can be odd and silly. The game has representatives from the five factions representing religions community, environmentalist, corporation/bankers, science community and the more intellectual minded. You have to approve or disapprove matters they bring to your attention and it effects your popularity with the factions. At first they brought up things such as issuing military drafts, but they started to get silly and almost random ranging from allowing breast feeding, to lobotomizing/castrating workers. The game also seems to have something of an agenda, since the game has two female commanders and of them one is an extreme feminist and the other is a lesbian struggling for acceptance.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. It's appreciated. Too bad, the game doesn't look very good from your telling.
>> No. 10723 [Edit]
>>10713
To be fair, most of those bugs only pop up after extended play sessions and I haven't had most of the same bugs pop up again after they've gone away the first time. Units hurting themselves for instance only happened on one map so far.

I once had a conversation about buying games on steam sale. I bragged that I had X games in sum, and it only cost me Y $. My conversation partner responded: "that's still Y $ you've spent."

That's pretty much the point where I stopped buying games I wasn't 100% sure I wouldn't play in the near future.

To be fair not many videocards out there have hdmi ports and using an adaptor comes with a fair amount of problems. My prebuilt PC came with a hdmi port but when it was time to upgrade the card it took a while to find something decent with an hdmi port and the mother fucking thing turned out to be HDMI mini. Ever since using the adapter I've had occasional problems with audio not transferring over to the tv and video sometimes flickering due to the back connection. I'm on my second adapter now after the first one broke under the cable's weight and now this one is starting to go too.

I can't speak about the stupid Alienware stuff, but Steam's in-home streaming is actually quite nice. I can play games in bed with my underpowered laptop streamed from my desktop at full settings with none of the noise. It also works with non-steam games, so I stream VNs through it as well.

If you could create a VN about anything, what would it be about?

I'd either make one about living by myself in a remote place, or a historical one. I'd love to play a historical-style VN.

Old or new, it's better to pirate it than buy a used copy. And I'm 100% serious here.

>>5737

Good picks. Ghost Trick was excellent (I'm prettu sure I praised it in the 'what are you playing currently' thread) and I'm the OP of our Radiant Historia thread.

Other than that Rayman: Origins and Minna no Rizumu Tengoku delivered, no doubt about it. Great games.
