If thats what it takes for you to have fun with the game, then whatever. When I started I cheated using runesmith for a few months because I couldn't handle how slow the start of the game was.

Make large squads with dwarves who have decent physical stats and aren't lazy. Give them low priority jobs that can be performed near the barracks. Set up the minimum amount of active duty dwarves to about half of the total squad number. Dwarves will attend lessons and spar frequently, the low number will mean that lessons won't be held up by tardies. The most important thing though is to capture prisoners, disarm them and have your dwarves beat up on them with shitty wooden weapons. When you want to train fresh recruits in an established fort, find skilled militia dwarves with decent social skills and/or high teacher skill and pair them up with a bunch of recruits.


The biggest problem is the performance. Back before the world came alive, you could get 300+ pop forts to last over a hundred years without dipping below 50 FPS. Now you're lucky to be at 50 FPS 5 years in with less than 80 dwarves.

Yes but instead of "optimized" the proper term is "make sure DF can fully utilize your hardware".

The gist of it is:

>install gentoo

>make sure you got at the very least -march=native in your make.conf

>compile a completely tickless kernel (you want to play DF, no need to preempt it for another task, and you don't want other tasks in other cores to lock up anything while they're preempted)

>don't install any DE/WM/login manager/etc bloat, just an X server

>install DF, make sure you use the –with-bdeps=y and –deep options with emerge so it also rebuilds DF's entire depgraph with your CFLAGS, in case any DF dependency happens to come installed by default on gentoo

DF is closed source so the actual DF code is not aware of your hardware's extra instructions which might make it run faster, although technically the graphical part of DF is, and it does get built by gentoo, and then you add on top of that most/all of its dependencies indeed being free software and compiled by gentoo, it theoretically pays off.

>write a script that starts an empty X server with nothing but DF in it

>play the game that way

>if you want to go even faster, copypaste the game to a ramdisk every time you play it, just make sure you symlink the savegames dir to your real hard drive or any outage might kill your save. Using a hard drive does actually incur increased CPU usage due to a multitude of reasons, and a ramdisk should read at tens of gigabytes per second with nanosecond latency

I can actually play adventure mode just fine on a 2ghz single core with a motherboard integrated GPU doing this.

Rollback to a version of DF that doesn't track all of the world's history for World Gen or constantly updates the world while you play (in Fortress mode). Adventure Mode is ok for the most part but it'd have to be without World Gen history tracking.


The fact that it's only now that DF is breaking everyone's PCs is a sign Toady is doing a pretty good job overall. The two constraints is the small memory limit DF has which is worse then Skyrim, and a lack of multi-threading Toady doesn't reveal what he does and has so far only a couple people who knows anything whoa re also not saying anything. The multi-threading itself is an issue because nobody knows if it would actually help because World Gen now tracks every, single, thing so after about 50-250 years of history your PC is brought to it's knees trying to calculate everything.

Guesswork with prodding DF has shown it to have quirks associated with algorithms you would use for this type of game so it's not a matter of inefficiency. Multi-threading is where it is debated now because this is the only real way it could be improved.

8f0332  No.16108967


>Yes, but they could generate worlds with more then 50 years of history.

That does not support your statement that he is doing a pretty good job overall. He is completely and totally incompetent, the game has always ran terribly, and his desire to add more shit without learning how to code has resulted in a steady progression of the game becoming slower and slower. So he is not doing a pretty good job, he's doing a completely fucking terrible job.

>Guesswork with prodding DF has shown it to have quirks associated with algorithms you would use for this type of game so it's not a matter of inefficiency

No. Dtrace doesn't lie. You can see with absolute certainty he is using exponential algorithms accidentally allover the place because he doesn't even know what an algorithm is.

>Multi-threading is where it is debated now

Just like it was "debated" a decade ago. There is no way to unfuck toady's giant cesspool of putrid shit to be able to make it multithreaded. There is no hope for DF ever being a playable game, that's why everyone bailed on it years ago, and a couple dozen people went and wrote DF clones from scratch and finished them while toady is still exactly where he was a decade ago.

a41731  No.16109005


>That does not support your statement that he is doing a pretty good job overall.

It does support my statement, if he was that terrible then it wouldn't even generate 1 year let alone 50. Feature creep is problem to any project where you just continue adding things but I seriously believe that the fact that he can continue to cram things into such a small memory limit is a notable feat. Even if he torched it and redone everything from scratch properly it'd still end up being where it is now.

>and wrote DF clones from scratch and finished them

You mean all those games that don't even bother trying to simulate everything? Every single one of them gave up trying to keep track of everything because they didn't have the determination to complete it.

8f0332  No.16109018


>It does support my statement, if he was that terrible then it wouldn't even generate 1 year let alone 50.

Jesus dude come on. "Oh well if it is so horribly broken that it is unusable that's pretty good because it could be slightly worse".

>Feature creep is problem to any project

The problem is not feature creep, it is incompetence. You can still download old versions, do it. They were always broken as fuck. The additional data he adds slows things down far more than it should because he's got so many exponential algorithms. The basic algorithms used in the game do not scale.

>Even if he torched it and redone everything from scratch properly it'd still end up being where it is now.

Yes, because he doesn't know how to code and has clearly and repeatedly said he will not learn.

>Every single one of them gave up trying to keep track of everything because they didn't have the determination to complete it.

>Try playing an old version from back when the game was fun and see if you get into it then.

Just in case anyone is interested in actually trying this advice, I'd suggest gabbing a copy of v34.11 and corresponding LNP. Here's a link to the Lazy Newb Pack for that version:


In a lot of ways I preferred 34.11 to the more recent "DF2014" version of the game. It's before the combat overhaul, so all fights are to the death, there's no climbing, and no cowardly NPCs in Adventure mode. It's also before the big changes to world simulation and war, so you tend to get a lot more goblin invasions in my experience and fort mode in general felt a bit more "gamey" (in a good way). Also, I don't recall Were-creatures being a thing in 34.11, or perhaps they were very rare. So if you're like me and hate constant wereskunk plagues and shit like that, this older version is great.

Probably the biggest disadvantage with 34.11 is that Adventure Mode has far less content; fewer structures, less playable races, less variety in general. But, if you want to play a more classic Fort Mode this version is definitely worth trying out.

Or, if you want to go really oldschool and try Dwarf Fortress 2D (AKA the Boatmurdered era versions), the latest 2D edition is (January 18, 2007). I've never played Dwarf Fortress 2D so I can't tell you how that plays.

I don't know what shitty PC you're on but those 50 years doesn't translate to unplayable in Fortress mode at least for me. 100 more years then it's unplayable.

>Yes, because he doesn't know how to code

It is feature creep because he just adds things until it can't support it anymore then torches everything to redo things from scratch. He has done this twice now, and I suspect this is how he'll continue to do it in the future. Since you mostly learn how to code from experience I refuse to believe he doesn't know how to code anymore except in knowledge he didn't have access too before he began coding all those years ago I acknowledge his autism trumps pragmatism but all things considered I can't think of many people who could do a better job when they started out as an amateur.

Also Rimworld is taking shortcuts at every step since the dev gave up trying to go for the same level of detailed tracking Dwarf Fortress does.

>Rimjob doesn't let you smash the third toe on the left foot of your opponent.

No, but look at what it does simulate, how many things it can have, and how many updates per second you have. It ends up simulating more than DF does. Because DF spends all its time in exponential explosions.


What does my PC have to do with it? You picked 50 years dumbass. 50 years is tiny and pathetic.

>It is feature creep

Feature creep is feature creep, but the performance problems are inherent. You can add as many items as you want if you are using logarithmic algorithms to deal with those items. You will fucking explode if you are using exponential ones. Again, you can confirm the problem using dtrace.

>Since you mostly learn how to code from experience

No, you mostly learn from a very specific field called computer science. Repeating the same mistake over and over does not teach you anything if you don't recognize it is a mistake.

>I refuse to believe he doesn't know how to code anymore

He never did. He has always made this clear. He is a mathematician who never learned any computer science. He just muddles his way through making stuff that appears to work and that's good enough. It is odd that you think he knows how to code when he repeatedly has stated he has no clue how to code.


>They just grown on muddy terrain in DF

Mud isn't food. Fungi digest organic matter for energy. In order to grow mushrooms for real, you put spores onto organic matter (usually wood) and let the fungus eat the wood. They need to get energy from somewhere, and in DF they magically don't.

>The two constraints is the small memory limit DF has which is worse then Skyrim

I think the most recent versions of DF are 64 bit, so the old 32bit memory limits aren't an issue any more. Skyrim Special Todd Edition Redux is also 64bit.


Now I wish we could tap trees for sap and make classic syrup from it. That'd be a great way to torture the elves, imagine making them walk through your Maple orchard to reach the trading post. A forest of trees slowly bleeding their sap so Dwarves can make (and export) barrels full of syrup wine.

>50 years is tiny and pathetic.

It's pretty good when everything is being kept track of the way it is, if Toady was doing a terrible job it wouldn't even make it to 1 year with it's scale.

>Repeating the same mistake over and over does not teach you anything if you don't recognize it is a mistake.

That's just a problem with being self taught in general but doing is still the best way to learn anything.

>It is odd that you think he knows how to code when he repeatedly has stated he has no clue how to code.

It's pretty typical for people to judge themselves separately from what they're really capable of.

Again Rimworld takes shortcuts and it doesn't even dare approach the scale DF tries to achieve.

Have you played Odd Realm? It's even more obtuse than something like Gnomoria. At least with DF you know how to hotkey around absolutely everything , as it's generally right in your face instead of dicking through four levels in a toolbar just to make a torch, and instead it defaulting to attempting to make an iron brazier . It's not like they even give you a better idea of how many resources you have, with hardly any sort of sorting or anything more user friendly.Odd Realm has problems that will not be fixed by EA shit, like really even worse ways of how it deals with Z-levels, you can make floors and mine away but it seems to ignore the floor layer while mining and you may scrape whatever it on top, so you're kind of cocking around going a layer down and away from whatever's above. I messed around with it for a bit and it may get better but there is inherit shit wrong with dealing with a lot of information, and they don't even really have any sort of mood shit in yet, or ever.

you can tell how much toady has advanced (and he has advanced a lot, unlike what you said) on the game through the main version number. v21.93.19a, for example, means "21% complete, with certain features complete to the N% degree". we are now on v45, which means "45% complete". your ignorance of this fact means that you evidently are a shill, and the rest of your points are moot.

Mud isn't soil. You can't excavate dirt, pour water on it, and get soil. Soil contains organic matter because plants put organic matter there. No sun, no plants, no organic matter, no fungal food. You should have to cut down trees and put them in your mushroom garden to feed your crop.

Forgive me I only realize now that you were implying that he stole forts and pawned them as his own because they're all different.

And yeah, I will sperg about tile sets as I have for years had to deal with threads about df and some fucking autist derails it because of his need for the purity of Asci.


If you like Asci I mean go for it, but to me to put it in an analogy.

Using ASCI to me is like reading manga untranslated, you learn to associate essentially another language visually.

Getting the actual true square ASCI is like upgrading from raws but still untranslated.

As far as I know the closest you'll get to that is becoming a necromancer in adventure mode. You will have to be decently proficient at killing people to do this, however.

Go in adventure mode, make your character with demigod stats, then find a place equidistant from a necromancer tower, and a human settlement. You'll want to go to the human settlement first and look for statues to push over. The settlement may not have any, so in this case you must go to the next nearest human settlement. Once you've pushed over a statue and become cursed, chances are you'll become a night creature of sorts (a random werebeast, or a vampire; you can save scum by altf4ing and pushing the statue over again to get the result you want).

As a night creature, undead should not attack you, and you should be pretty good at killing things on your own. Now, you can just take a stroll into your local necromancer tower and steal their book containing the secrets of life and death. Look it over, and congrats you're a necromancer.

You can start out just killing animals and raising them from the dead so they can help you kill bigger things like dorfs or humans, and at some point you'll have yourself a posse of zombies to wreak havoc on any sentient life within your vicinity. Unfortunately, the more zombies you have, the harder they are to control, so your character may end up becoming quite lonely and probably unhappy. This doesn't really matter if you're a vampire though, considering you basically never die.

Saging for a double post but I should also add that it is probably best to be a vampire as a necromancer, because you can sense living things around you so if you don't want to wait around for your zombie horde to finish killing that random herd of goats you can just move around where you sense them.

Build wheelbarrows and make sure every stone stockpile has a couple assigned to it. Dwarves use wheelbarrows to haul stone at their regular movement speed.


Be aware that (without DFhack commands) the max wheelbarrows per stockpile is 3, and dwarves will ONLY haul to that stockpile using its wheelbarrows. So, you kinda don't want to have a single gigantic stockpile with wheelbarrows, since you'll only ever have 3 dwarves hauling to it.

Also, you can have a stockpile take from other piles and [g]ive to a workshop, so that the workshop ONLY uses resources from that stockpile. Ideally you have your primary stockpile in a central place, then each workshop has its own stockpile that takes from the primary one. This makes haulers more efficient and saves your craftswarves' time. Be aware though: if even a single stockpile is giving to a workshop, the workers at that workshop will ONLY use stockpiles that give to it. This means you need to make sure that your workshop can still access everything it could need (fuel for smelters, barrels for brewery, etc). If you aren't careful, you'll have strange mood dwarves go crazy because they can't access a special ingredient (they want turtle shells, but your stone stockpile doesn't have turtle shells). With strange moods it's usually safer to cancel all give commands for that shop and let the workshop take from anywhere until the mood is finished.

I think there would be a lot of room for unique stuff with orcs. Orcs could be slavers and be like goblin kidnappers except they get adult dwarves as slaves. Slaves from other races could appear in drives clothed in rags and unarmed. Orcs themselves could either be unmounted or mounted on some other animal, either some new weird animal type that Toady likes to make, or giant wolves for a classic LOTR feel. Or maybe the Orc mounts could be just a random "Giant" animal from Untamed Wilds.

Well, yeah, that's the obvious one.

All siege invaders can climb walls and pits now. Goblins now have building destroyers in the form of Trolls, sometimes Ogres and other things.

So Orcs could be divided into Warriors, who are just killy brawlers with crude iron and leather equipment. Maybe commonly axe, mace, hammer, or whip users. Maybe the occasional Archer squad.

Sappers, who are equipped with Picks and are type 3 building destroyers and will tunnel under defenses and break through walls.

Engineers, who roll out seige weapons. Catapults and seige towers

And Slavers, who have whips and command squads of kidnapped slaves from several races.

Same here. It's almost a decade since I started playing, but I haven't touched it in recent years. The combat update was a mistake, it's still absurdly janky. Did they ever fix the problem with crossbows being amazing with bolts of any material, because all bolts were perfectly sharp and only the tip of the bolt was simulated for penetration, making even shoddy wood bolts into fucking armor-piercing discarding-sabot rounds?

On top of that, the militia system is too complex to be properly fun and too buggy to work as desired. The new features feel bloated, things like werebeasts are far too common instead of being a super rare "oh wow holy shit" factor, the map is far too tall and yet you can't take advantage of it because performance tanks so hard.

Diplomats and liasions just do their own thing in the fortress until they decide to leave. Sometimes the reason they hangout is because meetings with your leader is not available but other times it seems to be because of something you did to a zone before so now they're socializing and drinking booze indefinitely. Necromancer Diplomats are the worst though since they don't stop being Necromancers but now you cannot kill them and have to keep them caged.

Goblins are the ancestral enemy of Dwarves in almost every depiction involving either of the two. Elves are usually depicted as rivals to Dwarves. Orcs are usually depicted as the ancestral enemy of Elves. Adding Orcs would therefore diminish the rivalry between Dwarves and Elves while taking attention away from the Dwarven ancestral enemy. Having an in-depth world history rife with knife ears getting the green sausage might even have the unintended consequence of causing a player, who is about to play a video game about building a Dwarven fortress that will be besieged with all sorts of weird shit, to sympathize with green skinned creatures.

off topic, I used to make glorious rape dungeons for goblins, filled with traps, lava, water, dangerous animals.

I would have dwarves drop supplies down periodically, but the best part was since Toady allowed enemy to also be effected by emotions the goblins would eventually go insane or become so miserable they lose the will to live.

But Goblins kill elves too, and no one feels sympathy to them.

Another Orc idea is a Orc "Raider" who spawns in little sneaking groups like Goblin Ambushers. They'll sneak in if possible, but once inside or spotted, they'll just attack everyone and break into stockpiles like kobolds and grab anything not bolted down. Might smash up buildings too and even take incapacitated dorfs off the map as slaves.

You could probably set up high class brewers and cooks and assign them to a burrow over a "high class" area or restrict the workshops to only them.

Aurora 4x, if you're into that kind of stuff. Which considering the thread we're in, might be the case.

Also your question is kind of loaded, there are almost no games which chug on the highest end CPU considering most games are more bottlenecked by GPU power, especially if you have one of the highest end CPUs. Plus most games which could be bottlenecked by CPU power are going to be multithreaded, which "high end CPUs" are more focused towards than single thread speed.

It's pretty likely there's no iron where you settled. Wanting to work with a specific metal requires knowing actual fucking geology to figure out where deposits were most likely located.

You need an animal trainer with the specific skillset of training exotic animals, the Dragon must not have killed any of your Dwarves prior to taming, and just to be safe it should remain changed up isolated from your Dwarves especially your military Dwarves because they attack each other on site.

I tried that mod but the shit just doesn't work. I spent more time fucking with the code than actually playing it. Toads have this weird hang-up where civilizations of them will all look completely identical and I could never figure out exactly why, and the Koopas are designed to live for centuries but they end up looking like senior citizens at the same age as humans so your entire fort of turtles will look like a retirement home. And when I did try playing the Koopas I kept losing them to the glitch where they hide in their shells and NEVER come out, like what >>16146738 said.

The mod had a lot of cool things, but the jank in some areas makes parts of it unplayable.

Yeah, the thing about koopas is that early game sucks dick. You're really just trying to hold out until you get a demon king and you want to use your military as little as possible because your koopas will go into their shells at the slightest bump from local wildlife. They actually can go out of their shells once you have a hospital going, but the problem is that some of them like to take their damn sweet time to decide to come out. They'll do it eventually, but it could take multiple seasons. It's fine once you get a demon king though because you can send them in solo into almost anything and they'll burninate everything to death. Also as a protip you really have to prioritize stocking up on pyrite and rock salt at trade depots to get a proper alchemy industry going.
