Added sawmill building. Little brother of the timberyard, can cut logs into 4 planks (blocks). Goes with the "refine 1 into 4" theme of the game, and the wooden blocks can be used for contructions.
Added new system for Transmutation. It is now a cycle, and each metal can be created on each map.
Added Slaughterhouse system. Megabeasts now leave corpses instead of skill aether.
Megabeast corpses can be butchered in the slaugherhouse for 3 things:
1 Skill aether, 1 trophy (decoration or tradegood) and 1 special reward specific to the killed beast.
Added bitteroot and shadowleaf poison, directly taken from Genesis. This is a testrun. I will wait for feedback upon the "coat weapon/ammo" mechanic and see where I take it from there.
Special thanks to:
- Deon, because I blatantly stole the bitterroot/shadowleaf poisons for testing purposes.
- Falconne, for his dfhack plugins. Seriously, check them out.
- My brain, for keeping me awake till this was finished.
- You guys, for showing the patience. First update in 3 months, yeah. *dead.
- This entire thing is pretty much untested. I run 2 very short test forts, checked the errorlogs, did debugging on the GUI, but havent run every single reaction one by one. I do hope that I killed more bugs then I created, and wish everyone happy bug-hunting
I do know of one cosmetic bug in the GUI: If you enable orcs, close the gui and reopen it, the logo will still show a dwarf. The button will correctly show that you selected orcs however, so this is a very minor concern.
