Collection of tips I’ve learned over the years for Dwarf Fortress.
Tips and Tricks
- If you’re new to the game, I’d suggest starting in a warm biome so you wont have to get a cistern built before winter.
- Mined stone impedes movement, dump it and reclaim it once cleared out.
- When setting garbage zones, they can be 1 square and infinite in stack. This is useful for clearing out stone from mined areas into a single stack.
- The same technique can be used to create a destruction zone, by building a flood gate on the same square, open it, put items into zone, then close the flood gate. All items occupying that spot will be vaporized.
