Honestly, I just want FPS optimizations. I'm sick of having every fort die to FPS boredom after 4-6 years. Every feature he adds before he works on this is just gonna make it worse.

We got some recently. Fortress mode went up about 25 FPS on average for me on the new 0.34.xx version. I used to get 40 FPS with 115 Dwarves, now I get 75-85 FPS with 150 Dwarves. Its freaking great.
Yeah, I usually run pretty solid FPS on my forts even with over 200 dwarves living in it. However, it does tend to tank when I reach the magma sea. Between all the magma popping into view and all the caverns I tend to breach getting there my framerate drops considerably.

I still wait for the ancient Powergoal of Trollball to come to realization.

I hope there will be a way to counter diggers/climbers. Otherwise they could make elaborate traps and fortress design considerations pretty useless.

I don't have a problem with losing a fortress but I don't want it to be such that I may as well revert to log walls if building anything more complicated would be a waste of time due to being circumvented anyway.

I do want to see what happens with that, though.

Maybe they could only dig through stone walls. Metal walls would be a bit tougher.

It's more of a mid-term goal, but I'm really looking forward to having inns in fortress mode.

Digging and building/using workshops in adventure mode, having little shops, and being a massive troll with both in towns - literally undermining your competition.

countering the diggers is easy.
one needs just to remind the Toad Overlord that diggers in the middleages were tasked with building in "months" a tunnel, which would be structurally "weak" so that the walls above would fall down on their own weight. that's what a digger is. now, if we have goblin moles who dig straight entering tunnels, that's a problem, though if it's made to be a bit more *realistic* probably it will be suicide squads which will dig till the walls, and then the walls would crumble.

Oh, yeah. How could I forget? You reminded me that I'm one of the Dune-nerds that wants sandworm megabeasts.
