Dwarf Fortress – Quick Newbie Tip: Cage Your Animals

It is something that took me a while to “discover”, but now I won’t go without.

Why You Need to Cage Your Animals

This is specially useful if you have a bunch of them and have fps problems. Keep just your breeding pair outside, should you still want to be able to reproduce.

Some other advantages:

  • They won’t starve to death, don’t worry.
  • Won’t reproduce – so no gelding – but will give birth should they be pregnant prior to the incarceration.
  • The cage is infinite, you can fit all of them in just one.
  • Dorfs don’t need to chase them around when marked to butcher/train.
  • No impact on FPS due to pathing.
