Wait for Next Version, Use current (.40.24,) or use older release (.34.11?)

Wait for the next release. I want usable mugs damn it!

We can use the current one. I like the big trees and slightly smarter dorfs.

I'll take .34.11 thanks. I want to know I'll get to kill things for sure.

You have a dwarf, and no he didn't migrate, Reudh just decided to give us a new mascot since he seemed to be stuck. He'll claim a room on his own if one is unoccupied and if he has a mood or he becomes a legendary worker the old fashioned way he'll also be assignable to a room if it follows the usual rules. The main thing I don't understand is that he can't be assigned to a squad. I was always able to do that so long as the sergeant was a dwarf (Tigermen make AWESOME melee troops btw.) As far as clothing him we'll just have to buy him a new set yearly.

Also I am indescribably pissed off, as I had four paragraphs of stuff for the battle going on in Sewaturet and my computer had to restart (I hadn't paid attention. it was a forced restart for an antivirus update that I think I hit "restart now" on by accident.)

Its due to the way DF handles citizens. Based off reports on DFusion/multi-race embarks, the issue is there's a super-special vector table that allows things like squads/room assignments. Making an artifact solves part of the issue.

Seems some parts work better than they used it; in the 40d days, you needed ruinsmith to force labors on non-dwarf civ members and they only worked so-so.

Also, didn't realize I got dwarfed (or that my dwarf is still alive after so much time. Yay!).

Is your plan really to flush water into hell, and have the CARP marines fight them without threat of flame or disease?  If so, you are awesome, and one of the greatest DF military visionaries I've seen yet ( not that I've seen that many, or any, for that matter )

Another thing relating to multiracial deals, is that sometimes you can get AWESOME things in a migrant wave. I once got a squirrel demon that appearently enjoyed pottery. Thing wound up leading my milita (even funnier because it would have been considered physically weak for a demon.)

Also, Antmen make superb carpenters and miners as well as disposable soldiers.

Your making me want to play as elves or antmen now since we've been talking about this. Yes I said elves. I wanna see if I can make due with those asshats' limitations in weaponry.

Lol, do it, splint.

So, the regular game allows for immigrants that aren't dwarves, and non hostiles that get stuck can join the fort?

FOund a fix for the current version of DFusion. Since it doesn't really alter the game much, if at all, and really just adds a worker to the population who happens to be a shirt size bigger than everyone else, I didn't see a problem and OK'd it. Until he becomes squad assignable, I'm just writing off the squad thing as him being a bit leery of the stringent training program Fischer has set up.

Ah, I wrote Iki as being terrified in the face of his god, hence why he refused.



7th Timber 208

In an effort to get everyone to like me more, I ordered the engraving of the walls of the sleeping levels.
I joined in... and boy engraving produces some interesting results. I engraved a picture of Simon Tam surrounded by slugs. Bet he'll love that. I finally got to see who this 'Mr Frog' everyone keeps mentioning is. Pretty unassuming.

I set up some cage traps near our entrance and it's already provided us with our first capture:

A little coati blundered right into our trap. Now, hopefully we get a breeding pair.

Not much else has been happening. I have been getting the miners to widen the halls, and connect up some older halls that fell into disuse. We ought to be a little more streamlined. With the production of 60 bins, there's now plenty of space in our finished goods stockpile so we can produce more if need be.

I expect the dwarven caravan to arrive shortly, as it's Late Autumn, and with it Splint will see the arrival of our good Queen Sibrek.

7/10 Has much more memorable sigs but casts them to the realm of sigtexts.

Indeed, I do this.

Done. Although honestly I fully expect this place to go under once Loud Whispers starts his turn since he refuses to read up on everything until his turn is over.  ::)

Now this!

Pardon the typos, strange writing style, and bad art. I had been up far longer than I should have been.

I find the lack of activity in this thread disturbing.

Wow, I disappeared for a couple days and the thread is ridiculously quiet... Why? :-\ Where has everybody gone?

Splint, would it be all right with you if I posted the first pic you drew of Vanya (Ballpoint outfit)? Or were you planning on posting that some other time?


Reudh... moar updates... moar mugs...

Compared to other things I've drawn recently I don't feel like it's up to snuff, but you can post it if you want to. I was going to draw a new version though.

I Also was hoping to see what you guys thought of at least the drawings I included with my story, but there wasn't a damn soul to be seen. :c

Super mario 64... So... Many... STAAAAAAAAARS...
I'm sorry, but in between my newfound access to video games and youtube, and the fact that no one seems to be on when i am (that's why i gave out my phone number peoples!) AND the fact that i seem to chatter on and on and i've been trying to be better, i just didn't have anything to say that seemed worth it...
