Dwarf Fortress: How To Create And Use Mist Generator?

A Mist Generator can be used to create Mist for your Dwarves in Dwarf Fortress.

Dwarf Fortress is a strategy RPG where you can build a fortress for your dwarves. Throughout the game, you will help the dwarves navigate through calamities like starvation, dragons, and madness. In this guide, we will explain how you can create and use a Mist Generator in Dwarf Fortress.

How To Create A Mist Generator In Dwarf Fortress?


There are multiple ways to make a Mist Generator in Dwarf Fortress.  The easiest way to build a Constructed Waterfall is to use a constant source of water. It doesn’t really matter whether the source is umped or channeled. You can let the water fall more than 1 z-level next to a path that dwarves use regularly. One thing that you should keep in mind is that the tile that the water drops on, should not be part of the path. You can use a door, hatch, or floodgate and link it to a lever to turn off the flow when you want. If you want to avoid mud on adjacent tiles, you should use floor grates or bars on tiles that are adjacent to the water flow as part of the drainage system.

You can also use screw pumps to make mist ring generators. Alternatively, you can also use two pumps stacked on top of each other to generate mist. Lastly, it is possible to build an unpowered mist generator using a Light aquifer.

How To Use A Mist Generator?

To use a Mist Generator in the game, you can add water to it by using the Pit/Pond zoning tool. You can add the pond above one of the channel holes on level 3 that connect to level 4. This way the Mist will spread to Level 4.

That is how you can create and use a Mist Generator in Dwarf Fortress. We hope that this guide was helpful to you. For more gaming guides, check out Survivor.Io: How To Beat Chapter 1?
