Gamefolder[edit]

If you installed Dwarf Fortress on Arch Linux using pacman, then running dwarffortress will dump the configuration files you should edit into your home directory under .dwarffortress - editing the files under /opt/dwarffortress/data/init will not change how the game behaves.

SU by default we believe the itch.io app stores game files in `%APPDATA%/itch/apps`, at least on windows.

Conserving Resources

Some things absolutely require wood (like beds and charcoal), but others can be made out of more common materials like stone. For this reason it's best, especially in the beginning, to make everything that you can out of stone. For example, you could make wood chests and barrels, but stone coffers and rock pots would let you save wood for things that require it and help you rid yourself of all that stone. And if you decide you want solid gold chests or something later when you have more resources, you can always throw out the rock coffers.

Token Arguments Description
NAME
  • name
The singular form of the plant's name as seen in-game.
NAME_PLURAL
  • name
The plural form of the plant's name as seen in-game.
ADJ
  • adjective
The word or phrase used to describe items made from this plant.
ALL_NAMES
  • name
Sets the NAME, NAME_PLURAL, and ADJ to the specified string.
PREFSTRING
  • reason
What dwarves can like this object for (e.g. "Urist likes plump helmets for their rounded tops.")
MATERIAL
  • material_name
Starts defining a new local plant material with the given name and no properties.
USE_MATERIAL
  • material_name
  • old_material
Starts defining a new local plant material with the given name and using the properties of another local plant material.
USE_MATERIAL_TEMPLATE
  • material_name
  • template_name

BASIC_MAT Sets the basic material of the plant. According to Toady, you can use other materials (for instance, iron) but the game may hiccup on plants that aren't structurally plants. For crops, said material should have [STRUCTURAL_PLANT_MAT] to permit proper stockpiling. Generally, this should be "LOCAL_PLANT_MAT:material_name", using a material defined using MATERIAL, USE_MATERIAL, or USE_MATERIAL_TEMPLATE.

Modding notes[edit]

  • Token is catch all name for everything inside brackets
  • Token pages
    • Most document how to define new objects of that type.
    • Some document how to reference objects and list their default parameters e.g. Material_token and Item_token
    • Article naming is inconsistent
    • Some Token objects aren't covered or aren't tagged as such e.g. Caste.
  • Documentation
    • Our syntax is sometimes unclear to the uninitiated e.g. Creature token wth is caste TYPE how it differs from creature type of special?
    • Our syntax is sometimes inconsistent.
    • Some object names seems inconsistent as far as I understand their use here.
[OBJECT:CREATURE]
[CREATURE:<identifier>]

Don't match
[OBJECT:DESCRIPTOR_COLOR]   - match article name, never used
[COLOR:<identifier>]        - what is used everwhere that I seen.
