Wood frame outside? my Dwarves don't even get that! just a dirt entrance with a massive pile of wood at the front. Good Job!

My god when you stop and actually think about what your fort looks like you die a little inside

Thread necro, but too true. And then I try to throw up some elaborate archer towers and walls just outside to compensate.

I usually try to have walls around my topside entrance, with an elevated fortification ring for archers.

I just wanna have a pond for fishing, some space for above-ground farm plots, some bushed for harvesting, maybe a little outdoor butchery, and a topside trade depot so I can keep my fort mostly secure from land-based threats.

This is so true.
Although to complete it we need a bunch of workshops strewn around outside.

It is truly incredible how brutal the developer managed to make a game that is entirely ASCII in graphics. I'm not sure I'd even want to see Dwarf Fortress with improved graphics.

I don't see this as Dwarf Fortress fanart. There's no giant pile of dead bodies, blood, gore and vomit sprayed over the entrance and no cats XP

The mist is amazingly done. (I don't know why I noticed that first.)

No, it doesn't really look like the classic concept of fortress. But it does kinda look like the entrance (or exit) to a dwarf fort. Hehe

:heart: your artwork, as always

I doubt it's trendy or something. You can try it, if you don't mind spending more time reading the game's wiki than playing the game itself.
But I like it anyway
