40d:Temperature

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is about an older version of DF.

Dwarf Fortress uses its own temperature scale in most cases. So if you see something like [HOMEOTHERM:10067], don't be amazed.

[edit] Conversion

[DF scale] = [FAHRENHEIT] + 9968

[DF scale] = [CELSIUS] * 9/5 + 10000

[DF scale] = [KELVIN] * 9/5 + 9508.33

[DF scale] = [RANKINE] + 9508.33

[edit] Temperatures

Materials listed melt at the given temperature, and boil at the other given temperature. Materials not listed use a default melting pointVerify. Creatures listed have the given temperature as their body temperature.
