This article is about an older version of DF.

The default plants are stored in the plant_standard.txt file, while grasses are stored in plant_grasses.txt.

Basic Tokens[edit]

These tokens are specified for all plants and define their most basic characteristics.

Token Arguments Description
NAME
  • name
The singular form of the plants name as seen in game.
NAME_PLURAL
  • name
The plural form of the plants 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
Starts defining a new local plant material with the given name and using the properties of the specified material template.
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.

Environment Tokens[edit]

These tokens, also applicable to all plants, specify where the plants grow.

Token Arguments Description
UNDERGROUND_DEPTH
  • minimum

The water depth at which this tree will drown. Exact behavior is unknown. Defaults to 7.
SAPLING Makes young versions of the tree be called "[tree name] sapling"; otherwise, they are called "young [tree name]".

The "period" value determines how quickly (in frames) the grass animates, and the "offset" value specifies how much of that time is spent displaying the alternate tiles.
