Off-topic / Creator of DF compliments Sami & Co. and UrW
« on: March 25, 2019, 04:25:46 AM »
This interview happened 5 year ago, but is new to me because I'm just learning Dwarf Fortress.

Tarn Adams seems like a pretty cool guy and has a life goal similar to Sami's, so it was neat to hear him acknowledge UnReal World and Sami & his helpers in this interview... listen to the first 2 1/2 minutes at least:

Stories / Rauko
« on: March 10, 2018, 04:24:33 PM »
This story may be a bit fragmented until the posts catch up to his current experiences. The early pics were made a couple of years ago.

Rauko was a big, strapping lad who loved to hunt with his father. When Rauko was only 14 his mother sickened and died. Shortly thereafter, he set out with his father on a long journey, traveling all the way from Kaumo territory past the Owl-tribe settlements and into Seal tribe areas.

They grieved for the lost beloved wife/mother until their hearts healed enough to talk more freely about her. Rauko was reassured by how much his father had loved her as he told stories to his boy. One day they had ventured into no-man's-land to hunt and father was up ahead, when Rauko heard the roar of a bear and curses, then shouting of his father for help.

It was too late when he arrived to find his father's life flowing out of him onto the ground.

Rauko was devastated... too sad even to seek out the bear.

General Discussion / Migrating to new version

Is migrating an existing 3.40 character to 3.50b2 as simple as copying the character's folder into the new version's install folder?

Does copying the ANCESTORS folder also preserve all the history of dead characters?

Suggestions / Throwing (key command)

Can we get "1" and "2" keys (after hitting "t") mapped to throwing weapons that are already wielded?
This would be quicker and also intuitive, rather than having to pick the weapon from the list.

Suggestions / Proper mace graphic needed in game

Can we have a proper mace picture please?

Refer to this post by thefinn in the old forum, which I hope thefinn doesn't mind me referencing.

Thanks in advance!

Stories / Mik
« on: August 19, 2017, 01:27:46 PM »
Mik left home with few possessions after his mother and father caught a sickness and died.

They had been poor and barely survived the previous winter, during which a pack of wolves
had chased away and then eaten their only remaining reindeer. For you see, as many of the
tribe of the Owl, they had herded the deer. Unlike his friends' parents, Mik's father was not
very skilled and his mother was not an Owl tribe member, so they were never well accepted.

He buried them and mourned until hunger drove him away from their tiny kota.

He wandered until coming to another Owl settlement where he did not recognize anyone.
There he built a small shelter on the edge of the gathering and tried to make friends.


Suggestions / Smoke From Fires Visible From Distance
« on: July 08, 2017, 04:11:50 PM »
Could we have smoke on the wilderness map from fires that lasts for the duration of the fire, plus a bit longer after it burns out?

Perhaps smoke could attract other humans just like it would in R/L.

General Discussion / Migration?
« on: April 25, 2017, 05:08:15 AM »
What will be migrated from the old forum to the new one?

Is this something done as a batch, or selectively, or what?

There is a lot of priceless content that should not be lost.
