If you want tips on how to play Dwarf Fortress, you should go to the bay 12 forums: Bay12forums.com

As of now you can build walls out of just about any material. We are not sure about how animals will work yet. Yes, the game is very inspired by Dwarf Fortress!

Did you run setup.exe? How did you run the program? (Should be going through start > all programs)

1. The buttons don't work? Which ones specifically? They work for me!

2. Flat world was supposed to be grass. Not sure why it's desert right now. I think I will add (rare) palm trees to deserts anyway.

3. Not sure why dwarves do nothing after a while. Doesn't happen for me. I will try to find out why.

The short answer is that to avoid any potential legal troubles, we wanted to form a company so that there was a legal framework in place before we began accepting money from backers or selling copies of the game. This is a pretty standard thing people do before going into business.

We're academics and creatives, not businessmen or lawyers. We weren't familiar with the process or how long it would take. Most of our time was spent waiting on the state, the banks, and Amazon. There were numerous problems at each office with people mispelling our name, putting down the wrong address, or linking us to the wrong tax code, etc.

However, I am *very* happy we went through this. Now we have a shared company bank account with standard procedures on how the money is distributed to shareholders. We're also able to legally make contracts with employees or other companies, and are a legal entity in court should we be sued. If we'd stuck with an informal agreement, all of this would be unclear and we could get ourselves into serious legal trouble!

We have ramps + transition tiles that auto-adjust based on surroundings.

Thanks for defending us, but for real, we started this project saying "Let's clone dwarf fortress in 3D using a minecraft-like engine". We've added our own twist, but I'm not gonna pretend like we're not influenced by other games. There's also no shame in calling Terraria a "2D minecraft clone."
