    I'm on my first functioning fortress right now, building some topside houses and putting off venturing into the deep for now. I'll get there eventually though, with a buttload of soldierdwarves.

    Is there magma on the bottom level now?

    Wait, you have to irrigate underground farms now? That sounds complicated, do you just run water over it every so often?

    Well this is hard.
    My stagering food supplys are getting worse as my 7 dwarfs goes to 16.
    Our already small water resivoir dried up in the summer, we can only hope for the worst this comming fall, we are trying to pump enough crafts to purchase the food to get us through the winter. Our only source of food is fishing and farming.

    Edited:

    I wish I had visual fortress for this version.

    I think you can actually make a cavern underneath the farm and fill THAT with large amounts of water, since by logic, the roots of the plants would reach down into the water, which has cave nutrients in it, therefore feeding the plants.

    The first dwarf I get that gets a minor right leg injury is going to my fort's diagnostician.
    He's also going to lead my troops into battle. :awesome:

    Once is enough I think. It's not that complicated. Just build a reservoir system with floodgates. You want enough water so that the area muddified is big enough for you but little enough water so that there's only 1/7 per tile and it evaporates away.

    When I change my resolution to something higher, it doesn't allow me to see "more" of the map. Anyone got the same problem? It just stretches the window.

    Didn't you already have a barrack? I thought they wouldn't do drills without barracks. I made mine from an armor stand.
    I designated one from a weapon rack and they did nothing. But from a bed they immediately went filled-face and started training.

    4 Dwarves and 3 pets just spontaneously bled to death.

    They were doing their stuff, then suddenly a trail of blood followed them, then they die. They were migrants, but there are no dangerous things around, and half of them started spontaneously bleeding INSIDE my fort. It would have been fine if all of them died, but one survived and he was friends with pretty much every one of them. I expect there to be a depression spiral very soon.

    Edit:

    1 of them was not a migrant.

    Edit:

    2 more, and now a horse is 'Faint'

    It's Ebola.

    Did they eat any raw Rhesus Macaque meat recently?

    You need to change [GRID:x:y]

    x = screen size / text width(8 on 640x300 font)
    y = screen size / text height(12 on 640x300 font)

    If you're getting awful framerates, try lowering your g_FPS setting in init.txt to 20 or so. Worked very well for me.

    Ya know, it would be neat to hire mercenaries for your fortress in a later game update. Does anyone know if this is on the to-do list?

    Finding mercs from any civilized groups. Goblins/humans/elves/etc. But potentially finding a demon merc would be completely badass. I imagine they would have some special request based on their ability.
