you can however stack windmills as high as you wish on top of the other windmill
I can't get this to work?

I have a gear at the bottom, then a flight of stairs with 1 floor next to them. The first windmill in the air got built, but the second one says the "needs ground or near a machine" thing.

It's been some time when I did this, maybe make a vertical axis in between first and the next windmill another z-level higher.

Can't build axes or gears or windmills above the windmill :(

I'll just do the underground axis/gear network thing.

I've got an injured guard dwarf who won't seem to go to the hospital.  I've tried all sorts of things to get him to go, like taking him out of the military, putting him back in the military, deconstructing his bed, building a bed on top of him, and even assigning his room to someone else.

Oddly he did get some stitches at some point, so either he visited the hospital or a doctor came to him.  He certainly isn't getting any treatment now. 

Anybody know any tricks for getting him to the hospital?

When making my power line network under the windmills, do I need a gear under every windmill or will the power transfer to an axle passing thru?

@above, does the health screen say he's been requested for diagnosis?

you need gears to transfer from vertical to horizontal

I'm not sure, I'm at work right now.  Sorry.

Levi, does your hospital have open unassigned beds and tables?

Yeah lots.  I've had lots of other guys in my military patched up at my hospital successfully.

You can't build a gear, windmill, or axle directly above a windmill.  The center tile of a windmill has to be Outside.  Building anything directly above it, including another windmill, would make it no longer Outside, and no longer functional.

When making my power line network under the windmills, do I need a gear under every windmill or will the power transfer to an axle passing thru?

You need a gear under each windmill.  Power won't transfer to a horizontal axle from above.

What is the current job that DF says that this injured fella is currently doing? 

Maybe he's out chasing bees or something else strange that could loop his IQ.

I THINK he was just resting, but I'm not 100% sure of that.  I would hope that when I took him out of the military any chasing AI would have been resolved anyway(but who knows).

Omg the pump stack actually worked. All that for a reservoir for my hospital.

Guess I need to make a gobbo trap too just to make it feel worthwhile!

Thanks for the help folks.

Sometimes dwarves are just plain stubborn and will not go to the hospital.  Are other dwarves visiting the hospital?  If they are, then your hospital is working.  If not, designate that dwarf's bedroom as a hospital and see if a doctor comes to visit.

(Don't attempt to answer that.  Down that path lies ... well I was going to say madness but you all run towards madness as if it was made from chocolate and puppies.  Just forget I said anything.)

Ooh.  I hadn't thought of doing that.  I'll give it a try when I get off work.   

My hospital is working and treating other dwarves, its just this one guy who got injured and then grabbed the nicest bed in my fortress.

And I'm sure the sheriff will find it very entertaining that his fancy room was turned into an temporary ER.   :P


Edit:  Nope didn't seem to work.  Doesn't matter though, as a goblin ambush completely decimated my army.  I guess leather armor doesn't cut the mustard.  ;)
