Welcome to the Great Archive, a minor mod for DF.

What does it do?
The great archive is a workshop that allows your dwarves to open Legends-Mode while playing Fortress-Mode. This way you can read up on the world you created, without closing the game and fiddling with your safe files.

How do I install it?
You drag and drop the hack and raw folder from the download into your DF installation; you need the newest DF, 40.24, and dfhack. Now you have the script and the files; but you still need to teach your civilization to build the workshop and let dfhack know when to ues it.

Open your DwarfFortress/raw/objects/entity_default.txt and add these lines to your dwarven civilization:

Open your DwarfFortress/raw/onLoad.init and add this line to it:
modtools/reaction-trigger -reactionName OPEN_LEGENDS -command [ open-legends ]

That's it!

Do I need to gen a new world?
Yes, you do.

How does it work?
You will notice a new workshop in your build-menu: "Great Archive". You need 4 golden statues and 1 platinum cabinet for it; it's build by any architect. It has one job: "Read the legends of this world", which opens legends mode; the job requires no skill, is finished instantly and can be done by any dwarf.

- Mifki: the initial dfhack lines.
- Lethosor: the open-legends script.
- Meph: Workshop and reaction.
