Anyone notice everything requires only one bar of metal?
I was able to make a full suit of chainmail+plate with around 7 bars.
Yes, it's a bug.
Oh god damnit
All progress has been put hiatus because both my miners decided this was the most efficient way to work
I have found a bridge a few layers underground. It looks like it may be some sort of road leading through the depths. Anyone know what the purpose of this is?
I just learned that when water freezes, and there was a grate in the water, the grate is deconstructed.
Now when I release the torrent of water, there will be copper grates rushing as well.
Currently storing 165 units of water.
Maybe there actually are lost civilization ruins underground?
I'll try to get some pictures up in a few minutes.
EDIT: After looking at the wiki, I found out that the bridge could just be part of a goblin tunnel
still pretty interesting regardless.
It continues onward past my site.
Too bad you can't make worlds generate more.
You could flood that bridge with magma or put traps on it or something and see what happens.
Is it wrong to feel immense satisfaction every time I slaughter a kitten and make a fashionable coat out of it's skin?
Ah I haven't been in this thread for a while. Is the military still bugged? I've only seen a few bug fixes so far mostly with path finding.
I haven't seen any actual bugs with the military.
It crashed once while I was doing something in the military menu, but I think Toady fixed that. It's just confusing to use, like needing an arsenal dwarf and stuff.
"Stray Mountain Goat (Tame) has given birth to a horse foal."
Mr. Mountain Goat (tame) isn't going to be pleased.
I was reading through the SA Dwarf Fortress thread and I came across this amazing story.
THIS IS NOT MY STORY.
Um. So, my dwarves are dying. Just plain dying. They're outside and they suddenly start bleeding all over the place, then I get "Dwarf Name has bled to death."
The Elves just brought me an "Oaken Mail Shirt".
How the fuck did they make that?
He doesn't know how to play, he's trying to say his inability to play is due to bugs.
Eeek! A grizzly bear came, bit the hand of my metalsmith/carpenterguy pushed him in a pond and left!.
Nooooo the miner was too late to rescue him :(.
Goddamn drunk bears! He just took 20 prickle berry wines!
And he came back for more food but this time there were a bunch of dogs around, 1 dog died but that fucker isn't gonna be drinking anymore.
you're getting slow orky, that's been up for over an hour :P
My river carp can finally move :D.
And more like 2-3 hourish
Well, it looks like my efforts (ie: a few posts) worked. Someone made two of the Colossi from Shadow of the Colossus (albeit they are made entirely of granite). They are Kuromori, the Wall Shadow and Malus, the Grand Gigas. I can post the coding if anyone is interesting in test-driving them.
Created my first custom map.
HOLY SHIT, LOOK AT ALL THOSE MOUNTAINS :aaa:
Custom as in set parameters yourself? Or is there some kind of superdupereasy worldbuilderthing now?
Just by setting Volcanoes to a min of 10, world stop to 500, and Minimum Elevation to 10, I managed to get a massive world composed of various mountains and rolling plains.
There are currently 40-50 Human towns as well, and almost equal amounts of Dwarf, Elf, and Goblin settlements :buddy:
The Dwarves are clustered in the more major mountain ranges, while the Elves are almost exclusively found in an isolated area.
Goblins, however, are a different story. Goblin towers dot almost every large mountain range.
The thing took downright forever to create, (offloaded 20,600 units) but has a strong vibe of being an absolutely amazing map.
How do I upload the image of my map?
Is it just me or are berserk dwarves not so much of a problem any more? I just let a berserk fisherdwarf loose for shits and giggles, and all she's done so far is murdered her own child, killed a dog, wounded another, and picked a fight with the local legendary wood burner. Now she's shuffling around with busted knees and getting the shit kicked out of her by passersby.
I remember when berserk dwarves were close to demigods if they got loose, slaughtering everything in their path. Does anyone know if you can mod them to be more powerful?
