      There are now peaceful and not-so-peaceful ways of expanding your influence in the world. Once a site becomes linked to you (through prosperity or by conquest; you'll see a message), you can send a messenger there to request workers, or send dwarves from the fort out to such sites (from v-p). This only works on historical figures, so you might find you don't have off-site workers available at first, though some sites do have them. This release should also improve the issues dwarves were having with negative thoughts, and they can also now experience permanent changes in their personalities and intellectual values due to events in their lives.

      Note: Insurrections were such a problem in sites that I had to turn them off for your fortress's holdings; we'll get back to that later. It wasn't even the insurrections, really; the dwarves were bailing on the occupation immediately because they were afraid of insurrections.

      New stuff:

      • Your civilization will send out groups to found sites near prosperous fortresses

      • Existing sites near prosperous fortresses will associate themselves to those fortresses

      • Added ability to take over sites and install administrators

      • Can view your new holdings from the 'c' screen

      • Can send workers off-site and send out messengers to request their return

      • Mulling over long-term memories can lead to shifts in intellectual values and personality changes

      Major bug fixes:

      • Fixed hauling route crash

      • Fixed problem causing county stage to be skipped in noble elevation

      • Stopped all visiting barons from being elevated along with your baron

      • Changed horror calculation from seeing a dead body

      • Stopped similar memories close in time from taking all the memory space

      • Stopped stuttering lag from repeated vegetation connectivity checks

      Other bug fixes/tweaks:

      • Camping refugees will be awake during the day now

      Overall it sounds like the trauma and subsequent tantrum spirals that 44.10 was suffering from should be fixed, and we have a new shiny game mechanic to explore and exploit.

      Let's do it guys! Every good forum/community from Ars Technica to the XKCD forums has had a go taking turns playing the most detailed simulation game I have ever seen. I can generate the world for ideal 44.10 (and hopefully 44.11) settings with my extra adventurer reactions.

      Now that dwarves can get angry and stressed again, now is an opportune time. Who's with me?

      Who here plays Dwarf Fortress? It is such an amazing game that I only got back to playing last night after a weeks-long hiatus while focusing on my job.

      I prefer playing Adventurer mode with some crafting mods, and exploring the land - socializing, having fun, making NPC pals, and being a hero.

      Maybe we can do a Tildes DF succession game!
