Gnomoria Ep1 - Getting started and initial planning
 
30:50
Gnomoria is a great SandBox game that lends heavily from Dwarf Fortress. It is currently in alpha and is being upgraded and added to every few weeks. http://gnomoria.com/ This series is designed for new players who haven't been exposed to games much like this. If you haven't played Dwarf Fortress then this series will ease you in to the game play and hopefully point out the important principles and objectives. There are many ways to play games like this so don't feel you have to emulate what is done in this series. In this first video we look at keyboard shortcuts and also plan our initial build strategy. We look at : * starting parameters * our Yak pasture (temporary at this stage) * foraging for food and cotton * taking tree clippings and then felling trees * Green, amber, red colour coding of tasks * locate underground chasms * dig into the hillside and create our first storage pile * move the starting crates, bags and barrels into the storage area.

Dwarf Fortress for New Players ~ 06 Finding your start location
 
16:55
The start location on the map is incredibly important for the type of game you are wanting. For example you could start on a small island with no other civilizations, or you could start next to a necromancer tower and be eaten alive. Having said that, I tend not to overly worry about the start location any more and more try to find locations that will lead to a good story. Remember the 'fun' in Dwarf Fortress is how the fortress disintergrates. :)

Dwarf Fortress Sketch ~ Rooftop Battle
 
09:31
This sketch proved to be quite difficult to get right. It depicts the frantic battle on the roof of the Gatehouse in year 3 where a goblin maceman riding a giant bat tries to find another way into the fortress.

Dwarf Fortress for New Players ~ 16 Fruit, Fishing and Water
 
21:13
A word of warning about raw fish - it will eventually rot no matter where it is stored. Other meats don't rot once they are stockpiled. Also, toward the end of the episode I accidentally make the fruit gathering zone into a fishing zone - I corrected this after the recording had finished.

Dwarf Fortress for New Players ~ 00 Basic Goals and Introduction
 
23:42
Dwarf Fortress is a sandbox game in the true sense of the word and it is very difficult to provide a formulaic approach to each time you play it. In this introductory video I try to provide the basic underlying goals that impacts all your actions in the game. I show a flowchart in this episode which can be viewed (along with other good resources) from http://imgur.com/a/XbAEg

Dwarf Fortress for New Players ~ 07 Embarking
 
19:27
This episode covers embarking on your adventure. I received a question about embark profiles and that some points were left over. This often occurs if the civilization of dwarves can't supply an item or animal from the profile. In the last episode we had a civilization that was all but dead and they would have trouble supplying a lot of the required materials.

Dwarf Fortress for New Players ~ 57 Magma Pump Stack
 
20:43
ERRATA: You will see in the second half of the video a lot of cork screws, tubing and blocks. It is worth explaining the issue that causes this. Each pump sits atop the pump below it. If any of the lower pumps is destroyed then all the pumps relying on it for support (all the pumps above) disintegrate immediately back to their component pieces (which are the items you see littered around. In this video the problem came about because a dwarf tasked with building a pump lost a child and so stopped building causing that pump to basically cease to exist causing all the pumps above the collapse. One way around this is to find a way to securely anchor the pumps, such as building a gear assembly every 3 or so levels to limit the potential damage, resting on solid ground to lock the pump into place at that level. This of course then adds to your power usage. Another option would be to stagger the pump stacks into smaller sections (say 3 or so) with the bottom level of each pump on solid ground with a gear assembly next to it linking through the Z level to the set of pumps offset below. Hope that makes sense. Would sort of look like (side view) . . .x. . . . . .x. . . . . .x * . . . . . .x. . . . . .x. . . . .* x. . . . .x. . . . = Wall x = Pump * = Gear Assembly. That way the most that can fail in any one accident is 3 pump stacks.

Dwarf Fortress for New Players ~ 01 Starter Pack
 
09:54
Dwarf Fortress is one of the 'great' games. It is easier to play than people think but it can be daunting to just get started. I also feel it is important to approach the game with the right mindset rather than assume this is a game that is there to be won. This tutorial series will step new players through the process of getting started in Dwarf Fortress. Many of the episodes can be skipped and I'll try to put the most relevant information up-front so you can get what you need and move forward.

Dwarf Fortress ~ 10 Tips for New Players ~ Part A (Tips 1 to 5)
 
30:15
I was thinking about the number of comments from players who find it very difficult to play Dwarf Fortress, who struggle with the game, but who would like to play it but who are turned off by the complexity barrier. So I came up with my list of what I think are the ten most important tips for players new to the game. Only a couple of these are 'techniques', the majority are 'principles' and I hope these principles help people find enjoyment within the game by approaching it differently. Many of you viewers will also have your own list. Please add them to the comments and please up-vote any tips you think would help new players. And of course, if you are a new player, please have a look at the comments. There are some amazing DF experts who watch the channel and they will add enormously to the list. :) Part B will follow with tips 6 to 10. https://youtu.be/aZJ_xmyga38 Starter Pack can be found here... http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=126076 The link in this post will take you to the latest download.
