Civilization Forge v2.8
Compatible with Dwarf Fortress version 0.34.09+

About the Mod
Civilization Forge is a Major Mod designed to enhance and expand upon vanilla Dwarf Fortress. It includes many new races, animals, plants, stones, armor, and weapons as well as many balance fixes.

Version 2.8 includes many bugfixes, a rebalancing of ranged combat to be more reasonable, and the inclusion of a new ranged weapon, the Arbalest.

For questions or comments about the mod, please visit the official forum thread on it:;topicseen

Thanks to Lord Shonus for the Sling, Atlatl, and related ammo and workshop

Simply copy these files into your Dwarf Fortress raw/objects folder. You will need to overwrite some of the existing files for this mod to work.

Please note that while any of the race creature/entity file combinations can be ommited, ommitting any of the other _cf files may cause problems. The item files in particular will cause errors if left out since all of the existing and new races use some aspect of those files.

NOTE: This is a major mod and is NOT compatible with any previous saves. You will need to generate a new world for this mod to take effect. Because there have been some file additions/subtractions, I reccommend installing this mod into a clean install of DF and not over a previous install of Civilization Forge.

Features (Details are in the README file that comes with the mod)

26 New Races
- 13 Primitive

26 New Weapons

13 New pieces of Armor

3 New Shields

6 New Domestic Animals

8 New Wild Animals

3 New Toys

10 New Workshops

19 New Stones

8 New Gems

20 New Metals & Alloys

19 New Plants

Revised Ironworks Industry

* Alchemy recipes can be found within the 'Alchemy Basics.txt' file that comes with the mod.
* Alchemy is currently used to create the new Metals and is generally optional. However, for those that like complexity it should be a welcome addition to the game.
