nude kid goes berserk
« on: April 30, 2012, 06:23:38 pm »

Hi, that just happened recently in my fort. He's already killed about 6 in an end of a hallway, already the miasma is spreading.
I have about 10 sets of spare clothes, and yet the profile says "Is embarrassed to be uncovered"
And there's two other kids that are unhappy for the same reason.


What's the problem? Why won't they pick up some damned clothes, anyway?

Also, how would I disable berseking because of nudity in the raws?

EDIT: I'd also like to get rid of this problem as quickly as possible because of all the "cancels job" spam messages.

You can't do anything about a kid who has already gone berserk.  You need to kill him somehow.

You also can't do anything about your dwarves getting unhappy about not having clothing.  That's hard-coded now.  Better start mass-producing clothing.  The spare clothing you say you have is probably already owned, or the wrong size or type.

Well, the kids' just about killed everything on the upper floors now, including the other naked kids.
Now it's only the few smelters and smiths I have left on the barricaded floor. If anything decides to come up now from the caverns, I'm screwed.

Thanks anyway :P
And no, the clothes aren't owned, they were just made. So I really have no idea why the kid won't claim it, other than the fact that it's drenched in the blood of dwarves and poultry.

If you ever manage to calm this kid down, PUT HIM IN YOUR MILITARY!  ;D

"Uncovered" is specifically coverings below the waist.  Trousers, for instance, will satisfy thus.  Although dresses and robes cover the legs for purposes od armoring, they apparently only count as shirts for purposes of clothing.

I had a military squad go all tantrumy on me because I accidentally set "replace clothing" when I didn't mean to.

Took like 3 months to get one of them back into clothes because he tantrumed almost continuously and wouldn't get dressed.

I checked one of the combat logs. One of the entries said that the kid grabbed someone by the head and ripped their head clean off.

These kids usually die... if you can try trapping him inside a room with food and drink.  Then wait for him to chill out.  I've never been able to get this done before the kid kills himself from starvation or dehydration.

Insanity is still irreversible.  If the kid is berserk, he'll always be berserk.

Untill I had legendary this and legendary that this was the #1 cause of death. Still happens now and then.
It takes a really long time for the bad thoughts to disappear.
Everyone gets them when they become a child and suddenly discover they are naked in the dining room  :P

Wait, I thought "replace clothing" was the de-facto choice for everyone when it comes to uniforms, to prevent all sorts of problems with layering and not having room to wear a breastplate over a tunic etc.  I just started back in with DF2012 from playing 31.25, so maybe things have changed.  Why was "replace clothing" a bad choice in this case?

If you make a uniform that replaces clothing, but does not actually include clothing, you will get armed and armored angry naked dwarfs. Armor does not count as clothing! If you use "replace clothing" you need to add, at the very least, socks, trousers and a shirt to your uniform.
