    Hope you're ready for half of your dwarves to start a violent protest after you send all the trannydwarves to the front lines.

    You have no imagination.

    Just start some tranny thunderdome. Drop tranny dwarves into the pit, drop some enemies. Watch in delight.

    Or maybe train your Tranny into Trannynator and let Xie rampage through the known world!

    Also, there is magma for instant tranny removal services.

    I came to RPGCodex directly from Bay12 forums in 2014, after being banned for saying that men and women had different biologies, and women were never going to achieve the same strength as men. Toady himself is the only person able to ban, and he does it A LOT.


    About 30% of dwarves have been ass-blasters for about the past 5 years.

    Just do what I do for CK2 and mod the faggotry/trannery out (almost) completely. Learning to code is a wonderful and fulfilling experience, even for the married man.

    Game developers have been increasingly worse with human biology with each passing year. It's really sad.

    Not just human biology. Tfw capturing a pair of cave dragons only to find out one of them is a fag. I've still to witness any scientific backing of any sizeable consistent homosexual behavior in animals.
    Edit: I stand corrected, there seem to be a sizeable percent of rams living homosexual exclusively. It seems to be linked to differences in the brain.

    Graphic update doesn't look half bad. I'd have thrown Toady some shekels if he wasn't so thin skinned. But that in addition to this being a paid release for something that was free puts it into my "possibly pirate but most likely just forget about and move on" pile.

    The "inaccessible" part of Dorf Fagtress was not the lack of a professional tileset, but the horrendous UI and overly complicated gameplay.

    You can have the nicest tileset, the finest music and the best sound effects... that still wouldn't make DF much more appealing to non-autists.

    Rimworld is "DF for neurotypicals", I doubt we will ever see a better attempt at that.

    Supposedly they're remaking the UI for this version. Radial menus and true mouse support have been talked about in a couple interviews. We'll see if it ends up being good.

    It's almost historical by now. I think it was one of the first games of its kind and managed to spread widely before the days of Steam.
    Does it hold up to more modern games of its kind (you know, stuff like Nuclear Throne, Enter The Gungeon, etc.)? I don't think so, to be honest, it's really limited compared to these. But still, that's like saying Mario Bros. is bad just because it isn't as good as later installments.

    Seems like all this diversity/inclusivity/etc talk started when Zach's wife got into the scene around 2013. Just take a quick look at her bio on that same article...
    Also, when visiting the Kitfox Games homepage I noticed their founder looks like a typical SJW type, there is even a link to the Crash Override website (owned by notorious con artist ZQ). I really want to, and probably will, buy it on Steam to support Zach and Tarn since they are the guys doing the real work developing the game and they deserve it, but on the other hand I don't feel confortable knowing that a significant part of the money will end up finacing this kind of people and their nonsense...
