Well, you can always hack their personality to something you want. I guess for now the altruism is high to explain why someone risks their life for peasants they don't know: they "genuinely enjoy helping others."

As it stands right now, Adventurers make the ideal fort citizens. Compassionate ("genuinely enjoy helping others") and open-minded ("loves fresh experiences"), but also not easily fazed ("doesn't care much about anything anymore") and can handle themselves in a fight.
I may have to read up on how to do that hacking, though some fun could be had with random preferences. "We have reports of a kobold thief stealing steel daggers, precious jewelry, money, prepared meat, and... chairs."

Will it be possible to modify the layout of human, dwarven, goblin, etc, sites?

Indications are that, eventually, yes, but almost certainly not in this release.

BTW, thanks for the replies Toady!

Note that this is because COMBATHARDNESS goes up at a ridiculous rate in adventurer mode; getting hit can raise it by 2-4 points per hit (source: memhacking).

Though it's not quite so ridiculous if that particular adventurer has carved a bloody swathe through the bandits and animals of the world.

It is pretty ridiculous when it went up to 100 over the course of a fight against a badger, though.

That's some heavy shit, man.

"The fucking MUSCLE. Do you know what it's like, being scratched that hard?"

"Anyway, let's go on to the next person. How about you, Udib?"

"I've had 3 children. One was impaled on spikes. The second was stabbed in the face by a goblin. The third was beaten to death by her own berserking father".

"Yeah, that's bad... but this badger was something."

ToadyOne doesnt have any plans in the near future to put the town generation into raws. No strict to my understanding though.

I'm pretty sure he has mentioned somewhere before that he plans on making the city rules into raws, but that won't be around for probably a good long time.

Will there be any way to use a match as conditional? Example: to not try to add a tail if there's "TAIL" in the base creature.[/color]
...
do you mean "will there be exception-handling for duped raws", or do you mean letting the user say, via the raws, "if (creature already has tail) then {don't add tail} else{add tail}"...

Will world-generation errors be added back in as an available world-generation parameter?

Will there be an option to EXPLICITLY enable the reality-warping power of duped raws if/when you get around to stopping the issues with duped raws?


Yeah.  World-gen errors, for which 2047 or 2048 tall candy spires are not unheard of. I'd say more, but there's already a whole topic about it.

The second. When I'm generating random creatures using variations it'd be nice if some of the variation tags were conditional to the base creature.

These tree questions may have been asked already, but I couldn't find them.

Will we be able to use whole trees as defenses? That is, will we be able to use a giant oak as a wall or a bridge?

Will there be stumps left behind after we cut down trees? I imagine that stumps would be kind of like boulders, blocking caravans.

Will trees have varying hardness, affecting chopping time?

Will the tree size directly affect the amount of resources obtainable from that tree? Ie. a large branching oak will provide way more wood than something more similar to trees currently in the game.

Simply since the screenshots you previously provide make those trees look goddamn huge (which is a very good thing imho).
