    I didn't forget....DWARF FORTRESS 2010 came out. We DFers have been waiting like 2 years for it.

    Once I figure out what has changed, I'll continue the tutorial using it.

    Sorry Quinn... it's just that most of the rest of the world missed it, because Dwarf Fortress isn't exactly the most talked about game. ;)

    IT IS! IT IS!

    I couldn't even get into the forums because the site was so busy...
    also, they have a new site design:

    Just yesterday....that means you got DF2010, and that one is going to be super buggy and slow for a while. I suggest you download the one from this tutorial, as it should be way faster until DF2010 gets the lag fixes in.

    ok, that sounds like a good idea. I was already planning on doing that because I read on the wiki the new version probably had a lot of bugs. And as I new player I wouldn't know if I was doing it wrong, or if I was encountering a bug. But I'll download the old version from the site, because I actually like it without the graphics yours has included.

    And it's not like I was doing great in my first game. I managed to get my first cave flooded by water and had no idea how to get it out:p

    edit: I also just read through the story about Boatmurdered, to get a view of the possibilities in this game. I must say it was pretty epic :D

    Yes, boatmurdered is epic.
    In the new version, carp aren't capable of killing 100 dwarves all on their own.
    I no longer have nightmares about carp and fishing.

    My first ended fortress ended in a flood also. I was messing around with water pumps and I.....flooded the entire world. :(

    I didn't really use anything like pumps... I needed mud to build a farm (this is not needed in the old version) so I mined to the nearest water to see what happened. I expected a flood, but I thought I would find a way to stop it or drain the water afterwards...

    Oh and good for you that you don't have nightmares of the carps anymore, but guess what I just spotted in a river near to my new fortress I'm making on the old version!

    Do I need to know anything about these guys to keep my dwarfs alive?:p

    edit: I just noticed when checking the unit list that there are hundreds of carps. I hope the list does not only show things nearby...

    ...Run away! Run away!
    Actually, make sure you NEVER run out of beer. Your dwarves will decide they are thirsty for water...and rivers are a preferred source. Delicous Carp Snacks!

    Also, Fisherdwarves can be dragged into the water by the carp also. They have no chance, because they will drown.

    But you will have the added plus of a red river. :D

    As long as you don't flood it with lava and keep your doors shut you should be ok I guess:p

    I'll be waiting for your tutorial


    edit: how can I stop those dead lizards and living acorn flies to show up in my food storage:confused:

    also: "Minkot Rithenor, Miner cancels Return Kill: Interrupted by Carp." <--Run you fool!
    "Minkot Rithenor bled to dead" ... Oh great... Already got 1/7 of my population killed. I wonder when the first immigrants will get here
