    Status: After 8 hours, it's still not 2017.

    The upside is that since Dwarf Fortress is 64 bit now, at least it won't crash from running out of memory.

    If anyone wants to replicate the world, the seed is Inedo, the end year is set to 2017, and other than that, it's the vanilla LARGE ISLAND preset.

    Also, as a protip to anyone making a game, having it lock up for 5 seconds between each frame is not good UI. Let me browse the history viewer while it's generating, or at least pan around the map!

    Wait. Dork Fortress is 64-bit now? Did someone teach toady how to program? Do I need to go read the past 3 years of devblog now?

    The latest version was released on 2016-07-05, and the first 64 bit version was released on 2016-07-05.

    You should be reading the patch notes regardless, since they contain such gems as:

    Stopped dwarves from trying to clean their own missing or internal body parts

    I suppose they'll still try to clean the missing or internal body parts of other wharves?

    I'm pretty sure bathing is a one-dwarf activity.

    Well that's boring!

    There should totally be communal bathing!

    For now. When the Dwarven Sexuality arc goes in, I'm sure they'll try to clean their partner's guts.

    Good news! If they're doing pipe work, soon they'll be wielding. Which means you'll ALSO get the wonderful sound of all your smoke alarms, too.

    Your elves have clearly suffered at the hands of humans.

    My entire embark party is female.

    At least one of them appears to be gay (at least according to Dwarf Therapist). I thought I was joking about the Dwarven Sexuality Arc.

    There was a bug a while back where lesbian chickens wouldn't lay eggs. I think Dwarf Fortress may have invented (and subsequently fixed) the only legitimate reason to be homophobic ever.



  • @ben_lubar While I'm dumping stuff, here's a bunch of musical instruments:

    The rulush is a tiny hand-held metal musical instrument. The musician uses a leather bellows to send air over interior reeds. The desired pitch is selected using a wooden keyboard. The instrument has a three octave range going from a middle to a very high pitch. At all pitches, the instrument has a smooth evolving timbre. It has two registers. The low register has a warm liquid timbre. The high register begins at high pitch and has a sharp delicate wavering timbre.

    The lûk is a mid-size hand-held cloth-stringed instrument with a ceramic yoke and a glass body. The strings are suspended from the yoke down to the body and the musician plays the forty-nine strings with a metal bow. Tuning is accomplished by pegs.

    Stopped dwarves from trying to clean their own missing or internal body parts

    I suppose they'll still try to clean the missing or internal body parts of other wharves?

    I'm pretty sure bathing is a one-dwarf activity.

    For now. When the Dwarven Sexuality arc goes in, I'm sure they'll try to clean their partner's guts.

    @ben_lubar said in The Perplexing Complexity of Failure, a local dwarven government:

    I think Dwarf Fortress may have invented (and subsequently fixed) the only legitimate reason to be homophobic ever.

    Last I check the other reason (namely why Tarn thought Dwarven Sexuality and the associated nightmares involved was a good idea and how it made him react to people telling him otherwise) was never fixed.



  • @bugmenot uh, can you say that again but in English this time?



  • Evil idea: Dwarf Fortress slash fic, in the style of Dwarf Fortress descriptions.

    It's like the SCP Foundation, only with slightly more sex and dwarves.


  • Grade A Premium Asshole

    @ben_lubar From my understanding (I'll admit that this is mostly secondhand from friends who are way more interested in DF than I am) Toady's motives for adding sexual orientations to the game were at least as much about making DF "progressive" as they were about simulationism, which would explain the initial state of the orientation raws, i.e. fucking bananas. Then when people complained (mostly dudes having to abandon three fucking embarks in a row because their embark animals were either homosexual or asexual and wouldn't make baby animals; not exactly what I'd call homophobic, but whatever) his reaction was apparently (again secondhand) rather poor. The implication, of course, it that Tarn wanted to be a straight ally but didn't give any thought to the impact on the actual game. This is of course pushing aside the contingent of people complaining about "faggot dorfs" being at odds with the fantasy canon, which is a different can of worms because it has to deal with the game's intended tone and not basic usability.

    It's Dwarf Fortress, you need to specify if you mean it literally or figuratively.



  • @bugmenot said in The Perplexing Complexity of Failure, a local dwarven government:

    their embark animals were either homosexual or asexual

    With unedited raws, the probabilities of any given sexually-reproducing animal having a specific sexuality are:

    3.8% asexual
    1.0% homosexual
    23.8% bisexual
    71.0% heterosexual

    If you have to re-embark multiple times due to homosexual or asexual animals, your bus factor is way too low.


  • Grade A Premium Asshole

    @Maciejasjmj Figuratively. IIRC on first implementation of sexuality there was a 20%+ chance of a given creature being homosexual or asexual meaning it was worthless for reproduction. Even from a simulationist perspective, not only is this way way too high for most animals (unless it's something like a bonobo) it overshoots most independent estimates of sexual orientation among humans by a factor of 2.
