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

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.

I've added a mirror at my server here:

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

Down due to server relocation :/

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
