Description
PeridexisErrant's 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, and recent changelogs.

Besides the official download page on DFFD (here!), /u/Hecknar maintains df.wicked-code.com, which mirrors every release since 0.40.01! The final 34.11 pack is here. The final 40.24 pack is here. If you need an older pack or that site is down, let me know and we'll sort something out. OSX and Linux packs are available 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]: Use this tool and the checksum on DFFD to confirm you got an uncorrupted file.
3. [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.
4. [Optional]: Visit the DF wiki or my tutorials for help learning to play.

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.

 Dwarf Fortress 40_24 Starter Pack r (v 40_24 r10)  » posted by DTurnerDK on Apr 15, 2015, 01:30:24 pm
I've added a mirror at my server here: http://vps.dturnerdk.com/public/

As of today, only 40.24 r10 is there. I will try to keep it updated :)

**EDIT**
Down due to server relocation :/

 Dwarf Fortress 40_24 Starter Pack r (v 40_24 r14)  » posted by n3lly on Jul 05, 2015, 11:45:32 am
When using the new Dwarf Fortress 40_24 Starter Pack r14, my screen constantly flickers when using 2D or STANDARD Print mode. :-(

Please fix this issue, or let me know how to solve it. Thanks

 Dwarf Fortress 40_24 Starter Pack r (v 40_24 r19)  » posted by DwarfStreja on Nov 24, 2015, 05:05:01 pm
Didn't want to do this in public, but I had a problem with r19:

Nortons reported a trojan in the zip file. DL'd from the DFFD page.

May not have been at your end, but my end scans clean ... now.

I scanned the file as well and Norton was reporting a trojan. Before that I tried to open the game and it quarantined almost 100 files. Is there something wrong with this file or is it all false positives??

As far as I know it's all false-positives, and they've happened in the past, but you should probably judge for yourself.

OK so i have the same problem and I want to play the game but despite how much I believe it is not a virus I can't bring myself to disable the anti-virus and I don't know how to get the file to bypass.

Has anyone used the download and does anyone know a way to be able to launch the game without norton trying to delete it.
