This article is about an older version of DF.

Dwarf Fortress is an amazing game, but it's reputation as being impenetrable or difficult to learn tends to be very overstated (although from what I gather from other players online, its reputation stems from earlier versions of the game and not the game in 2020), It's true that the UI and visuals are difficult but there's plenty of mods and sets which can help with this. Like Dwarf Fortress, you’re free to transfer your new creations over into Crusader Kings 2 and watch them take flight further still. “Basically the tool will generate, from scratch, a completely new history of humanity from its first exodus from Africa as a new mod to be playable in CK2,” explains yemmlie.

Major modifications generally add or change a significant portion of the game, such as adding in new civilizations or altering the placement and properties of the game's metals and minerals. Major modifications normally require a new world to be generated using the modified files before they can be played.

Due to the wide range of modified files, major modifications have high likelihoods of conflicting with each other. Make sure to check for compatibility issues before attempting to install multiple mods.

Summary: A major modification that aims to set itself apart from the other major expansion mods out there. LFR includes dozens of new creatures (EVERY ONE with custom graphics), new metals and minerals, an obscene number of new weapons and armor types, and some very unique civilizations, each with their own distinctive flavor and style. LFR contains extensive lore files, an incredibly detailed manual to help you navigate the new features, and two multi-tiered, interlocking technology trees to advance your civilization in the ways of innovation and spirituality. Rife with new features to discover and a huge amount of hidden content, LFR is rewarding for both casual players and those looking for more of a challenge.
