    What are you talking about? You can now pet animals! PET ANIMALS!!

    Jokes aside adventure mode got a lot of new shit, but even if you only care about fort mode:
    • Traitor dwarves, artifact heists, interrogation for crime from the justice screen, counterintelligence readout with organization charts
    • Members of organized religions can petition for temples and priesthood recognition, priests give sermons and comfort stressed dwarves
    • Alliances against world-ending threats in world generation
    • Various villainous activity in world generation, in play off-site, and (more limited) in fort mode, world generation surveillance, interrogation and punishment. Historical plots include theft, sabotage, abduction, assassination, coups, corrupt advancement promises, embezzlement, starting wars, and framing enemies.
    • Merchant companies, military orders and mercenary companies, craft guilds in world generation
    • Various horrifying new necromancer/mummy/demon/vampire etc. matter - snow-balling zombie invasions, multiple experiment types, intelligent undead lieutenants with new powers, nightmarish summons, spreading evil zones, promises of immortality in villainous plots
    • Dwarves can trigger dig-deep disasters in world generation, with repercussions coming to other sites, including fort mode

    those will either enrich the world's lore and uniqueness or directly affect fort gameplay.

    Since there are tranny and homo dwarves has toady added in the ability for your dwarves to impeach the expedition leader?

    Ok, I guess "Hey, I'm making the graphics for this, but apparently you already know" is as good as I'm going to get.
    Happy 1000th post, me! Wow, that last one was... 8 years ago?

    Cool video. The emergent gameplay is fascinating as always.

    Never confuse the art and the artist. This is actually what the SJWs do now, trying to cancel all the great historical writers or whatever, because they were racist by modern standards, but it's obviously stupid, and so would be not liking/supporting Dwarf Fortress because he went retardo on the whole police defunding thing. At the end of the day, Dwarf Fortress is true video game art, and if it ever gets finished, THE game of all games (partially because every other game will probably procedurally emerge in it at some point :) ).

    That would bring on the Gaypocalypse due to a resonance cascade of homosexuality.

    Everyone in DF is 10 times gayer than real life, so all the games that procedurally emerge in DF would be 10 times gayer than real games. Eventually even DF would procedurally emerge in the world created by DF, only 10 times gayer than DF, thus 100 times gayer than real life. And that really gay DF would eventually create... and on and on till the multiverse is prolapsed like a rainbow-colored anus.

    You do realize DF comes with XML config files where you can customize pretty much any aspect of it? Set your gay rate to 0, and build fortresses in a world without any art. I mean also, we are all sitting here on computers, which were sort of invented by a gay man.

    What's the faggotry in DF? Just the existence of gay dwarves (and hydras or whatever)?

    I've never seen an interview with him before. He's much less autistic than I thought he'd be.

    He is not really autistic, people think he is being autistic with DF design (by implementing a shitload of seemingly unrelated features) but only because they do not understand what he and his brother are trying to do with DF. They think of it as some sort of strategy game, or fortress game, or adventure game.

    DF is none of those things. It is a fantasy world simulator. As in, it is an engine to generate and support gameplay in unique procedural fantasy worlds. One world might randomly turn out to be Middle Earth (or something similar), another Westeros, another the world of European folklore, and so on.

    So what he and his brother did, before starting developing DF, is they sat down and created various fantasy stories to try to determine what kind of features their game would need to procedurally create those stories during gameplay. That's where the insane 30 year long feature list comes from. It is perfectly logical, and the correct way, if anything, to address procedural games.

    There is a difference between demanding that something is cancelled and being too disgusted to enjoy the thing. What can be more cuckish than this? It's yucky, like someone smeared it with a smidgen of faeces and it will take a while before you can use it again, even though technically the thing is clean.

    I don't care so much about somebody having different politics than me, but when somebody's living off the donations of others it doesn't sit right with me that they're just donating the money ahead to something else.

    I bet once DF will be released on STEAM it still won't have proper mouse support or UI.

    Of course not.
    Because you would have to be a complete moron to want to play a game with a nice and easy control scheme and UI without having to memorize an entire keyboard worth of shortcuts.

    Just git gud and learn the ridiculously cumbersome controls, man!

    Yes, but unironically.

    And for those who don't want gay cave dragons and gay turkeys (nothing personal against gays ;) ) look at my post for a bash script to make creatures straight. https://rpgcodex.net/forums/index.p...rf-fortress-thread.108912/page-8#post-6646402
