    I wish I could get to grips with Dwarf Fortress, seems really great.
    Anyone post some stuff that might help? Like replacement tiles and maybe a new guide if there is one.
    Maybe I could help you if you hadn't removed me from Steam >_<

    Does this game use the GPU? Mine's lagging because I'm using the on board graphics at the moment...and I doubt the giant waterfall helps.

    It's really hard without all the d## stuff, I had trouble with the grid so I'm stuck at default tiny size and the default tileset. Hope it gets done soon.

    There is no new guides, just read an old one and experiment.

    I discovered a huge cavern with tons of mushroom and web, I am walling off a section of cavern for farming because it is covered in mud. I've had to re route my mining expedition around a lake and the cavern. This is fucking awesome.

    Yeah, you have to irrigate. Just like in the old version except now it's not stone only.

    If you want easy farming, dig into a cavern, seal a part off. The caverns are full of mud.

    Make a room near a pool/river/whatever, close it off with a door, channel a path for the water, build a floodgate, link the floodgate to a lever, pull lever, let some water in, pull it again, let it evaporate.

    Farm.

    I tell the finder to not give me an aquifier, but it keeps finding sites with aquifiers, I think it's bugged.

    Axeman? Swordsman? What's going on here.

    Also, at below post, could it be because of the Mythic Dawn?

    Haha, the mythical realm of dawn, for some reason, that reminds me of oblivion
    Also, why does the age of myth take so long? it was like 100 years or so in the older version, now it's 1000 years.

    Jesus, I didn't think this game could get any harder, I was wrong.

    I was forced underground by a giant Eagle, I discovered a muddy cavern and moved all of my supplies down there to start a new life. My dwarves were then mobbed by crundle (crundles?) and were all killed. It's dangerous underground.


    Holy shit a Plump Helmet man.

    That means that they're a strong dwarfy leader. If they were clean and beautiful, they wouldn't be real dwarfs.

    How do I pierce aquifers to get to the layers below 'em ?
    I've got one on my current Tundra embark and it kinda pisses me off since I don't have any building material at all besides the wood I brought along with me.
    Also, the ocean is frozen.Can I somehow melt the ice ?
    I thought about creating a "pipeline" surrounding the way I want the water to flow so that it doesn't freeze again.
