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. Get it here!

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. Salithus maintains a table of torrents here. 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.

If you want to say thanks to me, just post a nice message - but I do take money too. Note that the Starter Pack is totally free for everyone regardless, and that I'm not affiliated with Bay12 games but do have Toady's permission to take donations.

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.
3. Don't panic if it seems graphics aren't working - menus and text are meant to use ascii tiles now.

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. :)
I've thrown a copy up on my google drive, the download speeds are much faster there.
If anyone objects, I'll take it down immediately. I wasn't sure who to ask for permission! It's 40.16 r1 currently.

Hey guys, I'm new here but I like the game, I'm having a problem with that version does not work because the phoebus graph, every time I start it continues with graphic ascii, does anyone know how to solve it?

This isn't a problem - menu and other text now use ascii tiles deliberately, but once you embark, your fort will be shown with graphics tiles. This saves space and means graphics designers don't have to keep legible text in their tilesets any more.

 Dwarf Fortress 40_15 Starter Pack r (v 40_15 r1)  » posted by T-T on Nov 09, 2014, 09:43:25 am
Hello, another new player here.

I've been using your pack for two weeks now, and I'm loving DF. Hard to believe I've been missing out on it for all these years. That said, I seem to be having a problem with the 40.15 version, and while I've tried to figure out how to deal with it myself by digging through the various configuration files, I've ran out of ideas.

When I run DF through your launcher I am subsequently informed that the dfhack.init configuration file is missing, and that dfhack-example will be used instead until I configure dfhack.init. When I try to play the game multi level view is absent and TWBT seems to be inactive. Apparently print mode is set to 2D in the launcher. However, when I attempt to change it to TWBT and/or update my saves, loading my saved fortress results in a crash.

Do you mind posting these in the Bay12 Forums thread instead? Here the links hang around long after they're outdated.

 Dwarfs are unhappy according to The Rapist  » posted by Forkast on Nov 20, 2014, 02:00:53 pm
Hello.
It is only me having problem with Therapist that every dwarf is unhappy? But only since the 40_15 r1 version. Earlier everything was perfect.

Emotions have been overhauled so that stresses are spread out over their lives. DT isn't updated yet to reflect how dwarves now feel.

 Dwarf Fortress 40_16 Starter Pack r (v 40_16 r2)  » posted by justicarab on Nov 24, 2014, 06:16:01 am
Hello,
i've found fixes for this but i dont understand them at all and i'm guessing i do the process all wrong.
legend viewer works fine when i just generate the world, but when i play fortress mode on it a bit and try to load the legend viewer ...
(after abandoning the fort, and starting legends while exporting the required steps)
... and it always gives me the "unhandled exception has occurred in your application" error
"object reference doesn't comply(something like that) with object"

something about the work order?
anyways,
i can't seem to fix it, if you can help that would be awesome, i feel like an idiot for being the only 1 who can't figure this out.
