README.md

  • Lazy-Newb-Pack-Linux v0.44.09 x64 A small package to get people started with Dwarf Fortress on linux. Please take time to check out the Official thread. There are a few help documents in the Wiki if you should get stuck.

If you like the work I've put into assembling this pack, please feel free to head over to my ** Patreon ** page and buy me a coffee. Or a beer. Or a sammich. I'm really not picky.

Download Location

The Linux LNP Can be downloaded at the below location:

Dwarf Fortress File Depot

Usage Instructions

Navigate to the extracted directory and run

$ ./startlnp
Terminal Configuration

When first launching a new version of the LNP, you'l be asked to select the terminal emulator used to launch Dwarf Fortress. PyLNP will automatically detect several of the more popular terminal emulators, or you can specify a custom command. Incorrectly configuring the terminal will result in Dwarf Fortress not launching properly.

If you run into troubles with this, consult the PyLNP documentation HERE

LNP Import Tips

When first launching a new version of the LNP, you'll be asked if you want to import files from a previous installation. If you select yes, open the previous version's df_linux folder in the file chooser dialog, then click ok. Selecting the LNP folder or the root of the pack will cause the import to fail. The import process will grab your DF saves, SoundSense and/or SoundCense sounds, gamelog, and dfhack history from the previous version.

Dwarf Fortress Changelog

Release notes for 0.43.05 (July 5, 2016):

Here are the first official 64-bit releases! This would not be possible without help from our community -- you can view the exciting and sometimes late-night discussion over in the 0.43.04 release thread if you want to see how the cake was baked. This release should also make worlds generated with the same seed more consistent, and it has a few other minor fixes we managed to sneak in.

Major bug fixes
  • Fixed error deciding when patients should be moved
  • Fixed initialization problem with tools causing stone axes to be thought of as ranged
  • Stopped completed work order jobs from checking off every matching order
  • Stopped masterpiece trades in containers from triggering artwork defacement

  • Indicated child/baby state of prisoners during look etc.

Release notes for 0.43.01 (May 9, 2016):

A new version number! With the work order additions and adventurer-created sites, this one ended up with more new stuff and fewer bug fixes than expected, and my version calculator just tipped over at 0.43. You can use the new 'b' site building option in adventure mode to create a site (outside the bounds of other sites). For dwarf mode work orders, you can set conditions and details from the manager. You can also create orders tied to specific shops from their workshop profiles.

A miscellaneous note: in order to retire at the adventurer sites you create, you'll need to name the site, create a main hall zone, and claim the hall during conversation (or while shouting to yourself).

Next up we'll be doing more bug fix releases to make sure we have a vaguely presentable DF before we disappear into a new compiler and 64 bits.

New stuff
  • Ability to build up new sites in adv mode, either yourself or by assigning companions
  • Ability to do carpentry in adv mode
  • Ability to chop down trees in adv mode
  • Ability to make stone axes in adv mode
  • Ability to pull branches from trees in adv mode
  • Can put start conditions on work orders (by amount of resources or dependence on other work orders)
  • Can specify materials/images/etc. in work orders
  • Can create work order from profile which is tied to specific workshop
  • Can set maximum number of shops that a general work order can task at once
  • Can set maximum number of general work orders per shop or disallow them by profession or altogether (note: this won't work for active old-save jobs)
  • Allowed perpetual work orders
  • Repeatable work orders, ability to set restart frequencies
Major bug fixes
  • Stopped masterpiece trading from causing artisans to suffer effects of art defacement
Other bug fixes/tweaks
  • Got rid of work order limit of 30 jobs
  • Improved work order filtering (respect partial vs. full results etc.)
  • Stopped work orders from taking more than one slot per workshop
  • Stopped non-citizens from being charged for violating production orders
  • Stopped mother from getting both her and spouse's miscarriage thought
  • Refreshed material list when deleting uniform item
  • XML export now has the exact site rectangle
