I created a script for generating starter packs for Mac, you can read more about it here. I generated one with the following packages versions:
  • Dwarf Fortress 0.47.04 64-bit
  • PyLNP 0.14
  • PeridexisErrant's Starter Pack 0.47.04-r06 (just for the graphics)
  • DFHack 0.47.04-r3 64-bit
  • TWBT 6.xx for DFHack 0.47.04-r3 (thurin's repo)

It does not contain any utilities.

The zip file extracts to a single, self-contained, 'df' folder. It contains two .app files: "Dwarf Fortress", which is just renamed and with a nicer icon, and "Dwarf", which just runs dfhack directly using the settings that were last used with the "Dwarf Fortress".

This download, as other Mac releases, suffers from the well known issue of app translocation, which means that the uncompressed folder needs to be moved somewhere else before running the .app files. Sadly, I tried it myself and it's still not working. In the meantime, I added a Very Hacky 'remove_quarantine' script to remove the attribute from the .app files that makes them run out of app translocation.

Are you still planning to update and expand this? The newer DFHack and TWBT would be particularly welcome, as there are crash fixes.

Doesn't seem to work on the latest mac update. Or maybe it's the translocation issue? Regardless, I've tried unzipping it to my desktop and running it, but it always just crashes upon launch. I was unable to find the script mentioned to fix the translocation issue.

@avian304: sorry, I forgot the script in 0.3a, I've added it back in 0.3.1a. Can you try again?
