Dwarf Fortress is a colony simulator with over 20 years of constant development. At this point, it will be safe to say the game is among the most fleshed out in its genre. The game, as the name suggests, revolves around maintaining and expanding a colony (fortress) where Dwarves dwell. The game leans heavily on its gameplay elements. The happiness of Dwarves is key in the game and the happier the Dwarves, the better their work on the fortress. Among the many factors keeping Dwarves happy in the game are clothes. In this guide, we will cover how to make clothes in Dwarf Fortress.
How To Make Clothes In Dwarf Fortress
Dwarves are always fully clothed in the game and with time, their clothes bear wear and tear until they eventually give up. Players are always able to keep track of the clothes of their Dwarves and broken clothes have an x written next to them. Alongside attracting disease and grime, broken clothes lead to unhappy Dwarves that are comparatively unproductive.
There are 12 different types of clothes in the game, ranging from cloaks to tunics and all of them can be made with leather or cloth.
Players can make clothes in Dwarf Fortress either at Clothier’s shop or Leather works. Players will have to order their Dwarves to get clothes made and to get a piece of clothing made, a Dwarf will need to have silk, leather, or cloth.
Given the nature of the game, everything is done by itself as part of the simulation though players can restrict actions if they want to. This way, players will have greater control over their Dwarves.
All in all, clothes serve to protect against ailments and threats such as attackers. They do not, however, lead to direct death but rather unhappiness which can be very dangerous when it comes to running the fortress.
