Dwarf Fortress Remote 1.15

May 18, 2016

I’m happy to announce that Dwarf Fortress Remote 1.15 is available on the App Store. This release introduces multilevel rendering and contains a lot of other user interface and usability improvements. Below is a lengthy detailed list of changes.

Multilevel Rendering
This feature is well known to users of TWBT plugin on desktop, and now it’s available on mobile. It allows to see not just the current z-level, but also everything below. Only the top X levels are refreshed though, where X is configurable and is set to 3 levels by default. You can tweak fog and shadow parameters if required (darker tilesets may require more dense fog and shadows to distinguish between z-levels easily).

Fast building placement mode
When you need to place a lot of buildings like beds, doors or coffins, where you do not care which items will be used, you can do it much faster now. Just long press the green OK button when placing a building, and the closest item(s) will be automatically selected, without showing the item selection screen.

Fast linking mode
The same when linking buildings to a lever or trap – long press OK button, and the first two mechanisms will be automatically selected to be used for the link.

New clean style for the top status bar and for announcements at the bottom of the screen. Two announcements are now shown at a time, allowing to see more of them in time in a busy fortress.

Selection size is now shown when designating, creating zones and stockpiles

Long press z-level up/down buttons to show list of Points – this allows to quickly zoom to various parts of the fortress

When adding jobs in a workshop, swipe to add a job and set it repeat

When viewing a cage, swipe a contained animals to release them without loading the full Assign Animals screen

On the announcements and reports screens, “today”, “yesterday” and “X days ago” are now shown alongside the dates

Clutter status and number of contained items are now shown when viewing a workshop

Swipe a server in the server list to clear caches and connect – useful if you experience map corruption issues

Changelog is shown in the bottom of the server list screen to keep you informed about fixes and additions being made to the server plugin and in-app help

Zone information view can now be opened by pressing OK button when a zone is selected. Also, zone status is shown in the information bar.

Fixed orientation of horizontal axle and water wheel shown incorrectly when placing these buildings

Fixed an issue with loading noble view after leaving a position vacant

Close button is removed from trading screens to prevent accidental closing and losing status of all the items marked for trade

Support for iOS 8.0 – iOS 8.2
