This article is about the current version of DF.

Building tokens control the functionality of custom buildings.

All custom buildings are defined as objects of type BUILDING_WORKSHOP or BUILDING_FURNACE; workshops show up in the b-w menu, while furnaces show up in the b-e menu.

You also must add any new custom buildings to the civilization that you want to use it.

Additionally, furnaces must be designed by an architect before being constructed (and will gain quality accordingly), though they will always use the labor(s) specified in the building definition rather than ones based on the materials being used.

Token Arguments Description
NAME name The name of the custom building.
NAME_COLOR fg:bg:bright The color of the building's name when querying it. Seemingly ignored for furnaces, which are hardcoded to 4:0:1.
DIM width:height The size of the custom building, in number of tiles. Defaults to 3:3. Maximum possible size is 31x31.
WORK_LOCATION x:y The tile (1:1 for upper-left) in which dwarves will stand when they are performing tasks. Defaults to 3:3 (bottom-right).
BUILD_LABOR labor token The labor required to construct the custom building. If multiple BUILD_LABOR tokens are specified, then any of the indicated labors can be used to construct the building; if none are specified, then no labors are required.
For furnaces, this labor does not come into play until after the workshop has been designed by an architect.
BUILD_KEY key token The shortcut key used in the Build menu for selecting the custom building.
BLOCK
  • row
  • tiles...
Specifies whether or not each workshop tile blocks movement. The first parameter is the row (1 = top), and each subsequent parameter is a 0 (nonblocking) or 1 (blocking) for each column, left to right.
TILE
  • stage
  • row
  • tiles...
Specifies the characters used to represent the custom building. The first parameter is the building stage, varying from 0 (awaiting construction) to N (completed) where N is between 1 and 3, the 2nd parameter is the row number, and each subsequent parameter is a character number (or literal character enclosed in 'quotes').
COLOR
  • stage
  • row
  • colors...
Specifies the colors in which the custom building's tiles will be displayed. The first parameter is the building stage, the 2nd parameter is the row number, and subsequent parameters are either sets of 3 numbers (foreground:background:brightness) or the token "MAT" to use the color of the primary building material. MAT may not be available on BUILDING_FURNACEs.Verify
BUILD_ITEM Specifies one of the objects necessary to construct the custom building. Each BUILD_ITEM can be followed by zero or more modifiers.
NEEDS_MAGMA Specifies that one of the building's tiles (other than the WORK_LOCATION) must be hanging over magma in order for the building to function. Buildings with this token also ignore the [FUEL] token in their reactions.

[edit] Item Modifiers

Building items have many of the same modifiers as reagents in custom reactions.
