Welcome to the Noisebridge Dwarf Fortress Page!

Dwarf Fortress is an amazingly complex yet low-fi real-time strategy game, with dwarves!

This page is for those people interested in learning how to play and/or those who are already experienced who wish to share tips and what not. Feel free to make use of the discussion tab above as well.

3rd Party Plugins/Tools

  • The Dwarf Fortress Lazy Newb Pack
    • Note that v5.0 has many disabled utilities, if you want the full utility experience highly consider getting v4.6!
  • Stonesense live 3D map viewer
    • Note: this is just a VIEWER and doesnt actually make the game 3D. It has a lag as well, so it's long term usefulness is limited in terms of playing the game. But it's very impressive to show your friends.
  • Massive list of DF utilities

Tips

  • Construction advice: the construction system can be a little confusing at first.
    • A common mistake is to build an upwards staircase then later wanting it to be up/down. You cant do that!
    • Mega construction
  • Bins and barrels are a good way to manage items:
  • Be careful about custom stockpiles, you may end up making it unusable!
