23a:Release information/

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Dwarf Fortress was released on December 10, 2006. There is no download link for this version, as it was replaced with version a few days layer.

I'm partly through the temperature rewrite. This release has a lot of bug potential. You should back up your save folders if you are updating from an older version.

You can set fire to shrubs as an adventurer using the [g] command when you are standing near one. This is not a permanent command.

The temperature behavior of flows has not been implemented yet. Very hot/cold creatures do not change the air temperature yet either. There are a number of features that are in progress regarding temperature.

The problem with dwarves being stuck outside during the stay-inside order should be fixed, as well as a number of other bugs. You can now move the cursor quickly by using shift + direction.
