Community Mod List[edit]

A more complete list of mods (compared to this one) on the Bay 12 forum. The list includes updated links to a multitude of mods, utilities and modding utilities. All featured mods are catered for version 40.01 and up, though some of them might be outdated, and not work with the current version. There also exists links to threads of similar function for the older versions.

The list does not, however, encompass all up-to-date mods published on the forum, for that one has to search through the Mod Releases board, or even the Dwarf Fortress File Depot, the site where nigh all uploaded mods are stored.

Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom[edit]

Current version: 0.5.5 for DF Version 0.44


Author: IndigoFenix
Type: Total Conversion
Summary: A total conversion mod that gives the game the setting of the Mario game world, but in which these games, and Mario himself, are simply legends. This mod can be played on its own without any vanilla raws, or be mixed in to create a world where Dwarves and Koopas, Goblins and Shy Guys, live side by side.

The mod includes three playable races in fortress mode (Toads, Koopas, and Shy Guys), 15+ minor non-playable races, power-ups, cooking recipes, new materials, 120+ creatures and monsters, a few mega beasts, and more.
