Hiya! We always need more WikiFaries! ;)
Don't worry much about the template below, mostly just for reference and to give ya the standard greeting.
Feel free to remove it whenever.

Welcome to this wiki! Dwarf Fortress rapidly becomes more complicated, and we're always glad to have new writers.
Since we prefer that you try to follow our wiki's standards, we've made a list of basic guidelines. Note that this is an impersonal template, so some may not apply to you.

  • To let us know who you are, please sign your posts on discussion pages by typing --~~~~ after your posts. This can also be inserted with the Button sig756222.png button if JavaScript is enabled.
  • Avoid making many small edits to a page. Instead, try to make one large edit. This makes the history of the page a lot easier to read.
  • When making comments on a talk page, use one more colon before each line in your comment than was used in the comment you reply to. Put an empty line between comments by different users but do not use blank lines inside of a comment. If your comment has no indents, use <br> after each line.
  • Never, ever, put a question mark in the title of a page. This is not an undoable mistake. The rule list elaborates.
  • Most importantly, read and follow the rules. Really. Read them.
"You have been processed! Go forth, now, and edit!" --Savok

Looking forward to seeing you in action! --Edward 22:03, 19 May 2008 (EDT)

Heh. Thanks, this is an addictive little game and I'm sure I'll tinker around a bit here too. :) Bryan Derksen 02:17, 20 May 2008 (EDT)

Wikipedia links[edit]

Good idea. :) VengefulDonut 14:41, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

Thanks. The only spot I've found where it's not going to work right is native aluminium, since there's no such thing in the real world. But that's a pretty minor glitch IMO. :)

XML dump[edit]

Hey, I'm actually working through the XML for my utility world viewer so I think there is a lot I could add to that page. I saw you linked to this from Legends as well, good work. Mason (T-C) 00:16, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Okay, I made a bunch of changes, let me know what you think! Mason (T-C) 00:56, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

The problem with the XML is that I don't believe it shows who gives birth to whom in there, you just have births and deaths. I was able to do some small genealogical stuff in the latest version of World Viewer, but only for people who were rulers of civs (because they have additional information in the world_sites.txt file). I was going to view it in some text editor first to get information to make the reading in the program easier but that proved inpossible, so I had to just read it chunk by chunk in the program to do it right.

Aww. Well, I guess it'll have to wait for a future version, then. I was suspicious when I couldn't find any trace of an "hf born" event. Bryan Derksen 03:51, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
