I like the IDEA of Dwarf Fortress, an indirect control game where your little people go about their tasks without the need for micromanagement, but i hate how Dwarf Fortress looks like ASCII diarrhea in my eyes.
I've found Rimworld, Spacebase DF-9, and Prison Architect thus far, but they're all in alpha and I only want to give my money to the project most like Dwarf Fortress.
Rimworld sounds the most promising, as it's the same build a colony and survive gameplay as Dwarf Fortress, and it has an 'AI Director' which sounded great.

Any other similar types of game out there?
That's not suspicious at all!

Install a tileset? Trust me, there is NO game like Dwarf Fortress because of the fact it does not rely on graphics.

Install a tileset.

Nothing matches Dwarf Fortress. Nothing.

Yeah, there are some great tilesets out there for Dwarf Fortress.

Definitely sounds like you haven't tried tilesets.

I've recently picked up dorfort again and Jesus, I am readdicted. Default tiles always looked the best to me, maybe because I spend a lot of time in terminals...
Another idea I had was the spy/sniper being able to climb into the soldier's rocket launcher and be launched across the map, dealing more damage, but no splash.

A tileset is how an oblivious person like myself managed to play Dwarf fortress. I'd recommend it to you, as well.

^ Me too. I usually had trouble recognizing animals with other tilesets.

Any other similar types of game out there?
Towns is similar (though a lot less detailed and with more focus on attracting wandering heroes).
