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. The final 32-bit pack, 0.43.09-r09, 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://dwarffortresswiki.org/Lazy_Newb_Pack

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Download (above) 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 copying your old 'Dwarf Fortress 0.xx.yy/data/save/' folder to the new pack.
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.

Autosave should be TURNED ON BY DEFAULT!

I haven't played DF for years and this weekend I decided to check out the latest changes. I downloaded the starter pack, completely forgot about all the settings because it's been too long, and played for an afternoon.

Then Stonesense caused the game to crash. There is no autosave, so my progress was lost.

I am to blame for not checking out all the options before playing (but honestly, it's impossible for a starter.) So why not have the Autosave turned on by default???

This is likely due to the fact that autosave is a built-in DF feature, and is turned off by default. LNP doesn't change fiddle with any vanilla files on install as far as I'm aware, it only adds various mods that can be enabled and disabled.

Hey Perdexis, thanks for the update.

However I wanted to mention that upon generating a world that was not supposed to have Aquifers (aquifers turned off in LNP, no advanced worldgen in-game or anything like that), it generated a world with aquifers unfortunately.

Thanks for all your hard work and dedication.

Edit: Hm, seems like just must have been a weird world. Generated another one and it is aquifer free. /shrug

If i use TWBT with any other tile pack other that ASCII i get
"GL error
unable to accommodate texture catalogue. retry without graphical tiles, update your drives, or better yet update you GPU"
I get this every time i try to create a world, continue a world, or in some cases using particular tile packs when the game starts. :-|
I can only use 2D and no multi level.
I would also like to ad if anyone can help me that when i first unpacked and run DF there was no issue but after I closed it and ran it again i came across this problem.

False positives, not actual malware / viruses. They repeatedly pop up due to DFHack, which has to use DLL injection to hook into Dwarf Fortress. Antivirus software often sees this sort of behavior as suspicious, and even after they fix or whitelist the false positive, it tends to eventually show back up.

I can confirm that these are false positives.
I'm using Avira (usually in the top 5 for free anti-virus software) and it doesn't react a bit on the files.

Any change to add a x86 version for the current game version?
Seems like an interesting game.

As the main game has switched to x64 just a few versions before, it is literally impossible to provide an x86 version.
