Dwarf Fortress 0.43 Released, Adds Adventurer Sites

That picture above? That’s exciting to me. I’d wager it’s exciting to you, even if you don’t know it yet. Dwarf Fortress [official site] was just updated to version 0.43, which introduces adventurer-made sites; aka the ability to build your own little homestead even when playing the game’s roguelike adventure mode and not its all-consuming fortress mode.

That means you can cut down trees, use carpentry to craft them in to doors and tables, build multi-storey homes in which to store your doors and tables, build secondary homes and assign them to companions with particular duties, and so on. It’s a settling-down update, by the sounds of it, where instead of needing to always be moving, always be adventuring, you could perhaps make a home for yourself by a forest with a little river and settle down for a quiet life.

You can also do things like this:

I’ve finished adding the image/material specification options to work orders, so if you want to order up 20 identical granite statues of a dwarf laughing while an elf makes a plaintive gesture, you can do that now.

And much more, as explained by the ever-entertaining Dwarf Fortress development log.

Here’s something I did not realise until recently: Dwarf Fortress adventure numbers are calculated as a percentage of the total remaining to-do list. That means that as of this version Dwarf Fortress is now 43% complete. Sweet!
