The Overland View

The actual area in which you build your settlements, is represented as a big black void. Many different things are hidden inside this void, and as you dig more and more you will be able to use the newly made rooms and paths to create a proper home for your dwarves but also to find lots of interesting things.

Be sure to keep a close look-out for resources. The more you have the more you can build and create.

World GenerationEdit

When a Level is created it is given a set amount of properties: how big it should be, how many event rooms and how manyresources there are to be found, what kind of enemies that populate the area and lastly where all these are located.

A campaign level has some or many of these options pre-set, with additional event rooms and resources added randomly.

A custom level is more free, with every property created when the level is loaded.

Normal BlocksEdit

Normal Blocks have no resource value to them. There are four types of normal blocks:

DirtEdit

Your standard block, just mine it, yields no resources.

Undigium Edit

Unbreakable, undiggable block. Cannot be removed, just covered with floors or walls.

SoilEdit

These blocks are the only ones that Fertilization stones and farm plants can be placed built on

Rebuildable BlockEdit

A block that you can purchase for 200 Wood to refill any previously removed block. Can be destroyed by enemies.
