Description
This starter pack bundles Dwarf Fortress with the best community graphics packs, tools, and interface improvements already configured - so getting the best of everything only takes a single download and no fiddling.

It's suitable for anyone - if you've never tried DF before, or played for years - because while I've set up all the included parts already, the core is as easily accessible to you: you can add, remove, update, replace whatever you want to and customise the pack as much as you want. The tools I've included make the game easier to get into, but avoid changing any of the fundamentals - there are no mods here. Dwarf Fortress can be confusing enough to play, but doesn't need to be hard to set up too.

The pack has a thread on the Bay12 forums - use it for feedback, questions, suggestions, or anything else relevant. The second post has a complete table of contents, a comprehensive changelog, and information on checksums and mirrors (search the thread for "magnet" to find a torrent). The last pack for 34.11 is archived and still available - but I recomend playing with the latest pack instead.

Due the the level of variation between platforms and the configuration involved, the DF Starter Pack is only for windows - but there are similar packs available for Mac and for Linux.

Lastly - Dwarf Fortress costs you nothing, because the developer gives it away and lives off donations (and allows redistribution!). If you've got some money kicking around... consider a donation to say thanks, and help fund development for everyone.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Download and unzip the folder
It's a bundle of portable apps; there's no further installation procedure.
The pack must be able to read/write files though - so don't put it in a "Program Files" folder.
2. [Optional]: upgrade from an earlier release by running the 'copy my data' script with both versions next to each other in a folder.

Every time i try to download this, it refuses to finish and im left with a corrupted file. I REALLY want to, because i'm told this game is RIDICULOUS to get into, but CRAZY FUN. I was told the only way to get into it successfully would be to download this, but every time i try, it never finishes. I'll try it a couple more times, but if it doesnt work, could you email me the file not in .zip format? I'm [email protected] EDIT: yeah, its seriously not working, i have like 20 corrupted .zip files in my downloads, PLEASE, email the file to me in a folder instead of a .zip, i dont know if that would fix it, but .zip files wont even open at all if they dont finish, so i figure thats the best coures of action :-( EDIT EDIT: WHEW, finally got it working, and am working on my first fortress:). Epic game, i cant believe its completely free, AND is updated massively and frequently. And good job on the LNP, it seems to be very well done, it helps a lot to have everything right there, you should be all of ze prouds. :)

Well, whoever told you this is the key to unlocking the secrets of dwarf fortress, they're full of shit. I learned how to play on my own, pretty easily. Alot of people just tend to blow the learning curve WAY out of proportion, and say this is the most complicated game in the world just because the dwarves are represented with smiley faces. Although I will make a note on the download speed, for some reason it's slow as shit.

Be honest to yourself- the learning curve of this game is terrifying, regardless of graphics. I mean really, once someone figures out how to build a well, who's expecting the water to have pressure and flood the fortress? Or for gobbos to decide to ambush your woodcutter at that moment? Along with a bronze colossus showing up at the same time, while the dead woodcutter is reanimated by that necromancer?
Case in point; being able to easily understand what is going on helps a ton, regardless of actually knowing what'll happen or what can go wrong.

On another, more agreeing note, you really don't need anything like this to get into the game; I mean, they're nice and all, but once you get involved with the community playing DF, you don't want to have to admit to them that you're disabling aquifers, temperature, and invasions- although those are a few things that are useful to get rid of while trying to figure out how to feed the little pricks...

Hey so is there currently no added graphics packs? I guess I'll probably also have to wait for Dwarf Therapist to be updated in a new Starter Pack release :/

Nope, for r1 in DF2014 nothing has been updated yet. They'll catch up soon, but until the you can use the legacy pack.

isoWorld always reports that it can't connect on port 5000. I'm not seeing any obvious config options that I'm missing out here, other than it seems like it's just not running DFHack at all? Any suggestions?

This is normal when you don't have dfhack, since the connect function relies on it.

Odd that it's including a utility without a prerequisite, although I suppose that's due to DFHack possibly being delayed more than other package components.

 Dwarf Fortress 40_09 Starter Pack r (v 40_09 r1)  » posted by Evil Monkey on Aug 24, 2014, 11:42:32 am
Hello everybody,

I just registered myseld to this forum, because I seem to be too stupid, to get this game working. I tried this game a few times in the past, but that ASCI grpahics made me run away everytime, before I had the chance to play the game. I played Gnomoria for a while, but I am missing the depth DF-Players talk about.
Yesterday I found this article:

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2014/06/26/control-dwarf-fortress-with-isometric-graphics-and-mouse/

and after reading this I spent my whole afternoon to get the game running with the stonsesense overlay and mouse controls.
I don't get it working. I downloaded the starterpack from ths site, just pressed the "Play Dwarf Fortress!" button, because I couldn't find the stonesense option.
A lot of people just say, that you just have to press CTRL+SHIFT+P and type stonesense overlay. But where am I supposed to do this? It doesn't seem to work.

Could you just tell me step by step how I get this stonesense overlay with mousecontrols to work?

Or just a link, when I was too stupid to search properly.

Thanks in advance
EM

The overlay isn't working with the big DF update at the moment, so grab the pack for the previous version and it'll work just fine: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=8687
