found it easy to learn it took 1-2 days to get the basics. I still use some of the forums and wiki and more specific questions. I mostly leave my fortresses due to boredom.

Once you have a nice trap entrances to the caverns and entrance and 2 teams of legendary steel dwarfs there is nothing much that can stop you.

Only fortress i lost when after i had an idea of the game was to a Giant cave spider. Got unlucky with a shallow cave and the beast waiting with just 7 dwarfs.

Eh, I've seen it before. Also, that's a fairy standard fortress scenario. **** like that happens to me all the time. Or at least it used to before I started pumping out super soldiers that kill those damn things in seconds. ******* hate forgotten beasts.

Would I enjoy dwarf? I always hear people raving about the difficulty and the level of detail. I can't decide if I would enjoy it.
On one hand, I can lose at FTL about 6 times in a row before giving up in frustration, only to come back the next day like the submissive bitch I am. So I guess that is my 'baseline' for difficulty.
BUT!
I have a piss poor attention span. Most grew out of ADHD when they reached adulthood. I am not one of them.

Should I even bother watching a 'basic tutorial' that is close to three hours long? Or would I be wasting my time and I should return to casul gaming?

Inb4 google it. I'm gonna, but word of mouth recommendation or condemnation is valuable input to me.

if you asked nicely the couple people here who actually play it would probably show you the ropes.

a short attention span might actually pay off with dwarf fortress because to excel you have to micro mmanage so many different things so going from thing to thing would keep you're dwarves working hard and because they're just slow as **** you can get back to them before they're done to give more instructions. but it is a game of learning it took me about seven tries before i could succesfully fend off a goblin attack with no losses and i've had countless defeats since

i would say, if you can get over the graphics, and you can learn to make you're own fun; much the same way mine craft is only as fun as you make it. dwarf fortress is by and large a fantastic fantasy simulator, but its not something you should jump into under the impression its complete or will be any time this decade.

A good thing to do is play gnomoria, it's like dwarf fortress light. If you get really good at that, then give df a try, but it is all in ascii, and if you can't figure it out then look for the Lazy Newb Pack its got tile sets and other fun stuff

if you want to learn through a video, instead of watching a "basic tutorial" video, look for a playthrough with a commentator you enjoy (or at least tolerate) so its more like entertainment rather than sitting through a class. you could also play along so you have more interaction and can remember things easier rather than getting bored sitting through a bunch of episodes trying to learn enough to go off on you're own.

I know it's just a joke, but I feel like the HALO line is completely inaccurate. Harder than starcraft my ass.

Well what do you know, I just downloaded Dwarf Fortress. For the second time. My first foray into the game had me just saying 'intense bodylove it' and deleting it, but I do really want to get into the game. I like games like this.

Use a starter guide, download lazynewbpack and use a custom tileset, preferably phoebus, that'll get you started much easier

It's a simulation game where you manage a dwarf fortress starting from an expedition team of 7 dwarves, their skills and whatever they bring along. Learning the basics without a tutorial or at least a control list from somewhere is pretty much impossible, and to this day a lot of the keys I never use. You designate things to do like building an object or construction, mining an area and producing something at a workshop, and any dwarf that has that labour enabled (mining, carpentry, cheesemaking, whatever) goes ahead and does it when it has the time. Each dwarf is its own person with stats, thoughts and preferences and basically does what he/she wants.

I suggest downloading Dwarf Therapist after you're fortress grows past the first couple migrants. When you have 30 dwarves or more it becomes really, really hard to manage you're dwarf labours to the point of it being unplayable.

It's interesting to play, but there's this slight problem...

The main game alone will keep you entertained through lost fortresses time and time again until you finally figure out you're own playstyle. You'll probably end up making a safe fortress through use of traps and then drop them in favour of having an army (which is more fun and bigger critters like Oggez avoid traps). You might embark on an evil or wild place where the weather zombifies you're dwarves and the wildlife constantly breaks into you're fortress. Even after you get bored of the main game, the modding possibilities are many.

The modding possibilities are endless. Not many. Endless. I got into modding pretty heavily. You can make almost anything. I made sky-whale megabeasts with ultra-valuable aqua colored milk that you can use to make sky whale cheese with which you can make the finest armors. I made massive fortress guardians with mithril bones that spit chunks bedrock and sprayed webs. I created many different types of dragons. I made the dwarves capable of eating their fallen foes (with anything other than a very short history, you end up with nearly extinct dwarves no/goblin trade caravans and constant attacks from humans/elves). I made dog-sized rats with a distinct genetic system. Mastadons? Why the intense bodylove not? Do you want to live in a prehistoric world controlling cat-people with obsidian weapons? Have at it! It's all possible with DF. Be warned: it is highly highly addicting once you get the hang of it.
