Description
The Starter Pack bundles Dwarf Fortress with huge community upgrades - graphics, tools, bugfixes, and much more.

It's suitable for anyone - if you've never tried DF before, or played for years. For beginners, everything is bundled and set up for you; any setting can be safely ignored and the default will just work. For advanced players, everything is open: customise, add, remove, update, or replace anything you want to. The Starter Pack means you can spend hours setting up your fortress, instead of your DF install!

There's a thread on the Bay12 forums for feedback, questions, suggestions, or anything else about the pack. The second post has a complete table of contents, a comprehensive changelog, and recent file checksums. You can download the latest pack above, at Two's mirror or /u/Hecknar's mirror - and the mirrors also have older versions too. If you're not using Windows, find the pack for your OS at http://lazynewbpack.com/

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Download and unzip the folder
It's a bundle of portable apps; there's no further installation procedure.
The pack must be able to read/write files though - so don't put it in a "Program Files" folder.
2. [Optional]: upgrade from an earlier release by running the 'copy my data' script with both versions next to each other in a folder. DO NOT try to upgrade by extracting or copying over an earlier pack.
3. Don't panic if it seems graphics aren't working - menus and text are meant to use ascii tiles now.

Finally, an appeal: Dwarf Fortress is free, and redistributable, because Toady lives off donations. You can support Bay12 Games here. Or you can donate to cover my time and costs here. Even if you decide not to donate, Dwarf Fortress is still free - and so is this unofficial pack.

Every time i try to download this, it refuses to finish and im left with a corrupted file. I REALLY want to, because i'm told this game is RIDICULOUS to get into, but CRAZY FUN. I was told the only way to get into it successfully would be to download this, but every time i try, it never finishes. I'll try it a couple more times, but if it doesnt work, could you email me the file not in .zip format? I'm FearsomeClarinet@gmail.com EDIT: yeah, its seriously not working, i have like 20 corrupted .zip files in my downloads, PLEASE, email the file to me in a folder instead of a .zip, i dont know if that would fix it, but .zip files wont even open at all if they dont finish, so i figure thats the best coures of action :-( EDIT EDIT: WHEW, finally got it working, and am working on my first fortress:). Epic game, i cant believe its completely free, AND is updated massively and frequently. And good job on the LNP, it seems to be very well done, it helps a lot to have everything right there, you should be all of ze prouds. :)
I've thrown a copy up on my google drive, the download speeds are much faster there.
If anyone objects, I'll take it down immediately. I wasn't sure who to ask for permission! It's 40.19 r3 currently.

Hey guys, I'm new here but I like the game, I'm having a problem with that version does not work because the phoebus graph, every time I start it continues with graphic ascii, does anyone know how to solve it?

This isn't a problem - menu and other text now use ascii tiles deliberately, but once you embark, your fort will be shown with graphics tiles. This saves space and means graphics designers don't have to keep legible text in their tilesets any more.

 Dwarf Fortress 40_15 Starter Pack r (v 40_15 r1)  » posted by T-T on Nov 09, 2014, 09:43:25 am
Hello, another new player here.

I've been using your pack for two weeks now, and I'm loving DF. Hard to believe I've been missing out on it for all these years. That said, I seem to be having a problem with the 40.15 version, and while I've tried to figure out how to deal with it myself by digging through the various configuration files, I've ran out of ideas.

When I run DF through your launcher I am subsequently informed that the dfhack.init configuration file is missing, and that dfhack-example will be used instead until I configure dfhack.init. When I try to play the game multi level view is absent and TWBT seems to be inactive. Apparently print mode is set to 2D in the launcher. However, when I attempt to change it to TWBT and/or update my saves, loading my saved fortress results in a crash.

Do you mind posting these in the Bay12 Forums thread instead? Here the links hang around long after they're outdated.

 Dwarfs are unhappy according to The Rapist  » posted by Forkast on Nov 20, 2014, 02:00:53 pm
Hello.
It is only me having problem with Therapist that every dwarf is unhappy? But only since the 40_15 r1 version. Earlier everything was perfect.

Emotions have been overhauled so that stresses are spread out over their lives. DT isn't updated yet to reflect how dwarves now feel.

 Dwarf Fortress 40_16 Starter Pack r (v 40_16 r2)  » posted by justicarab on Nov 24, 2014, 06:16:01 am
Hello,
i've found fixes for this but i dont understand them at all and i'm guessing i do the process all wrong.
legend viewer works fine when i just generate the world, but when i play fortress mode on it a bit and try to load the legend viewer ...
(after abandoning the fort, and starting legends while exporting the required steps)
... and it always gives me the "unhandled exception has occurred in your application" error
"object reference doesn't comply(something like that) with object"

something about the work order?
anyways,
i can't seem to fix it, if you can help that would be awesome, i feel like an idiot for being the only 1 who can't figure this out.

 Dwarf Fortress 40_23 Starter Pack r (v 40_23 r2)  » posted by Berlioz on Jan 13, 2015, 01:13:23 pm
I tried to download 40_23 r2, but the transfer stopped before it was done and I got a corrupted ZIP file. Trying again, all I get is "No data received." :/

Is there another way to download this?

Thanks.

Everytime I try to install the ASCII Default graphics I get an error message. Is this normal?

Edit: Nevermind I got it working, you didn't include the raw folder... Can't believe you forgot that. Still great work for the rest tho, keep it up.
