  • Changelog Request
    Yes we use an excel spreadsheet that has a column that collates the data into the desired markdown format. PR title [Added a Paranormal Investigator Profession #52041] PR Link ( Author by [emarinier]Link to author PRs on github ( Handwritten note First Time Contributor The old build server had an automated changelog it could spit out but that system didn't work on the new github actions driven build structure.
  • As a new player what is the fungi and how does it work?
    If you want you can add the mod to your version. The mod is available here.
  • I want a dog
    Suggest it as a feature in the Github repo or the development subreddit. ¯\(ツ)/¯
  • Mutation cancelling traits inconsistency question
    Try to replicate the effects via savescumming from a known-legit state if you're uncertain. This is the mutation list and while these hidden issues exist the prerequisites and purifiable status in there can be taken as law. "Cancels" seems to only apply in one direction, the "types" such as "legs" are a little more consistent and comma-separated prerequisites are treated as a logical OR.
  • Open world RPG games with lots of cities and towns?
    CDDA. The towns are full of zombies so perhaps it isn't really what you had in mind, but it's also free so you can try it easy.
  • [Steam] Roguelike Celebration Sale: Notia (-40%), Spelunky 2 (-30%), Golden Krone Hotel (-75%), Monster Train (-50%) and more | 2021-10-16
    Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead - Sci-fi post-apocalyptic zombie survival game where every single doomsday scenario happened at the same time. This game has the deepest and most intricate survival and crafting system of any game out there and has a very active modding scene. The game is getting a Steam release sometime soon.
  • New to Cataclysm DDA | Any tips for early game?
    Use the launcher (linked under "Community Resources" on the official site) and turn on save backups. This will allow you to try things out a bit more and reload the backup if it turned out to be a worse idea than you thought.
  • Please help finding a singleplayer, simulation/RPG/strategy game/mod with elaborate mechanics, that also could be played more casually - not interfering with work/family life? I present many somewhat obscure examples that almost fit the requirements.
    See, I've had a blast playing ASCII version of Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead in the past... but nowadays all of this is too hard on my eyes, especially when playing late at night. I'm patiently waiting for the GUI version.
  • Is There A Guide out There to Making Tilesets?
    here’s the official documentation on GitHub
  • Changelog October 3, 2021 to October 10, 2021

  • My main character can teach my NPCs Martial Arts!
    For anyone wondering :
  • Making the game more user friendly/animated and better graphics?
    Make sure you are using a tileset at all. Your game should look like what's shown here
  • I just found this open source game. Are there any other noteworthy open source games I should know about? | 2021-10-11
    Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead
  • Tileset editor
    You can find the actual docs for doing this here:
  • Just noticed metal compactors don't work any more. Can I restore their function in JSON, or will it need to be done in C++?
    You need to restore their code, for reference here is where it was removed If you feel like adding machines or other processes for breaking down and recycling things to the main game, that would be welcome, all you need to do is not skip a million steps in the process.
