Three fortresses now and I have yet to see iron. Did they make iron really rare? I felt like I was guaranteed iron in the old patches.

****ing lol at giant jaguars.

My first fortress in 31_25v23 had iron EVERYWHERE for at least 5 zlevels, maybe more.

I abandoned the fort. I wanted to have an awesome fort with lots of fighting.

Do you remember which biome it was? I know certain biomes are more likely to get certain minerals.

Also, embarking on multiple biomes is awesome. Everytime I start a new fort I figure out like 10 new things.

You should give it a try, at first it was a little much and I watched some tutorials 2 or 3 times before I could figure out the basics of the game. I guess that is one of funnest parts for me, is the challenge. I can't stand these games out now where everything is handed to you on a silver platter with no challenge/thought process whatsoever. This game makes you think and plan with little room for error.

I've been following up with a thread on the official forums of a multi-player version but it is still very early in development. Should be awesome!

Started a new fort. Really should pay attention to the temperatures and biomes and whatnot. Everything is frozen and covered in a thick coat of snow.

[edit]

Snow is melting, just noticed I actually made my fort on the top of a small mountain, in a coniferous forest. Everything went better than expected.png

[edit 2]

This map is actually pretty cool, has a waterfall that goes down 6 zlevels, and there are LOADS of gems and silver, I wait till the water freezes then I go and mine out around the river for all of the visible gems and whatnot, its pretty awesome.

No iron or anything yet though.

That does sound like a cool map. I've seen frozen water in my maps but never snow.

I just got my first waterfall too. Its not hiding any cool gems though so I'm just going to leave it be, even if it does freeze.

****ing Zinc everywhere.

It was a cool looking map, but largely useless. Loaded with gems and silver, but that's it, no ore for me to make weapons and armor, and I didn't want to have to rely on trade.

I've never had to fight a titan before, but I've ****ed up a lot of forgotten beasts, some of them are extremely weak.

Found a deadly new starting area, iron and flux on the first level I mined into.

[edit]

Oh wow, just ****ing great. I had my woodcutter outside doing his thing when a raccoon scared him, he dropped his axe and ran off, and the ****ing raccoon picked the axe up and ran off the map.

Never had to deal with titans or forgotten beasts yet, just regulars sieges and that damn minotaur.

Sitting at about 75 dwarves, starting to get a bit overwhelmed. Also, steel is a huge pain in the *** to produce.

I just hit 50+ and had to set up all sorts of custom profiles in dwarf therapist. I think I set up 10 simple professions (brewer, cook, mason, miner, etc) and then all the random as hell ones like furnace operator and **** you might need briefly into another one that includes all the hauling jobs. Now when I get immigrants I immediately stick them into that hauling profession and then pull them into specific ones when I realize I need more labor somewhere.

So has anyone ever had a dwarf be taken by a mood and actually craft something good?

I'm sick of limestone tables encrusted with limestone and hatch covers with pictures of elves being killed by minotaurs, I want some armor or weapon artifacts.

Though I will admit, the steel figurines my guy made depicting the founding of our fort was pretty awesome.

I just got my first good artifact. I got a pair of gem encrusted steel chain leggings (or something like that) valued at over 300,000.

I hope I would see more of this, but my next moody dwarf made a coal table. I'm okay with tables though, they increase the value of your dining room by a lot.

75 dwarfs for me too now. ****s getting busy. Lost a dwarf to a strange mood because I just couldn't get him to take a shop. He starved to death with no tantrum though, so at least that's good. And it forces me to start my burial chamber.

Danger rooms are ridiculous. I used it for about a minute and got a handful of legendary combat skills on 4 dwarves. Now I just need to get my damn steel industry running. Except I have no flux and no iron. !!!

You lurkers need to pick up the pace. Me and JC are running the show. PLAY DWARF FORTRESS.
