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

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

I just have you set to claim any unclaimed military dwarf. We don't really use swords here.

Hey, I'm up for learning new things.  8)

Learning = education = loss of money = loss = fun.

Therefore, learning is fun!

Unless it's Double Physics.

Physics ends in smashed skulls and flooded fortresses.

Not in high school  :'(
And those computers can only run DF, at best, at 40-odd FPS

I was making a sweeping statment about DF Physics in general. Somebody had an entire segment of sea decide to change psoitions to the inside of his fortress. And enemies I pitch off onto spikes tend to land head first.

As off topic as this is, I've also learned how kobold spearmen can outclass some dwarves: Speed. God help you if you're an animal man or even giant animal, and a spearbold who is fuck-all fast is coming for you on solid ground.

Kobolds can get stuffed by any of:
  • My Quicksilver caste Sapiocoatls [SPEED:600]
  • My Coatls [SPEED:550]
  • My half-finished Hydragons [SPEED:300]

Still, back to the topic at hand?

Well, regarding movement, the physics are good. However, given that Toady coded an entire WORKING METEOROLOGICAL SYSTEM, as well as shear stresses, density, etc of every single material in the game, I'd say he's done pretty well. :D

It's hard to fight against something that knocks you down seventeen times per second.

Can't knock it down when the first thing it does is knock out your legs' ability to function. And I was talking vannilla critters. She's brought down two elk birds, a giant otter, four oppossum men and a tick man alone. Chased them down, and violently stabbed them to death. Her poor lover only has half that many kills and they were mostly elk birds.

ANYWAY

I seem to be suffering various forms of artblock. halp... Tomorrow, cause I need to sleep.

Sigh...

The TvTropes page on Spearbreakers contains too many spoilers that I can't resist looking at...

Overseers' Log, Overseer: Tomio. Date: 22nd of Slate

In all the commotion of our wounded God-Champion Fischer, some random Dwarf had a mood and claimed a clothiers workshop. HUZZAH... I guess.


Also, a new Dwarf has arrived. Goes by the name of LFTON, and is an adept swordsdwarf and the sergeant of one of the squads.
