The most vital Dwarf Fortress mod has arrived for Steam, complete with 3D visuals

The one true mod for Dwarf Fortress has finally released not just one, but two iterations of an alpha for the Steam version of the game, also known as v50. DFHack is a vital piece of equipment for Dwarf Fortress enthusiasts for two reasons: First, it’s a full suite of console commands to fix problems and improve performance. Second, it incorporates a popular visualization tool called Stonesense that lets you see an isometric view of your fortress.

First off, if you’re running out to try this alpha, I’ll warn you: It’s an alpha, make a backup of your game, heck, your entire DF folder, before mucking around with this. DFHack’s release notes have some advice on how to do that.
