Dwarf Fortress Remote now supports Dwarf Fortress / DFHack version 0.43.05-r1 (64bit version only). This is the first 64bit version of Dwarf Fortress, and it can support bigger worlds without hitting a memory limit, and purportedly a little bit faster in some cases (as well as having a few bugs fixed in the game itself, as usual).
The new version is compatible with saves from older versions so feel free to update (however you need to have a 64bit OS to run this and future versions). The easiest way to update is just to install a new package from mifki.com/df/setup, and copy saves located in
data/saves folder. You can then re-add your server to the application, or copy
data/init/remote.txt file to preserve settings like published name and password.
I've also added an article how to update to a newer version of Dwarf Fortress if you have Remote server running in a Docker container, for example, on a cloud server.
UPDATE: This feature is now available in app version 1.50 released on April 18, 2017.
The next version of Dwarf Fortress Remote will greatly simplify server configuration and adding it in the app. Just install, type one command and scan the code to configure connection.
UPDATE: The new UI style is now available in app version 1.40 released on February 22, 2017.
Currently some of the screens in Dwarf Fortress Remote application use light colour scheme while some use dark DF colours. This is because initially I was going to use the system default UI, however on some screens the data needs to be colour-coded using DF colors which requires dark background, so these screens were made dark. Now I've unified UI throughout the application (except for the screens before you connect to a game for now).
Over the past few year, with my daughter we have visited a large number of kids playgrounds in Auckland and nearby locations in New Zealand as we're trying to go to a new places whenever possible. So now I have photos of all these playgrounds, and finally I had time to create a section on the website for this collection.
Only a small part of it is uploaded so far, the rest will come in the next few days, and new places will be published as we visit them. I'm using some other lists like this when deciding where to go next, so I hope my collection will be useful too.
