fill pond - 34.08
« on: May 15, 2012, 01:34:08 am »

I've imported a save from 34.07 to take advantage of the new features. Two things I've noticed are that the colours seem much more vibrant, and that my dwarves will sit at the side of a water source all day, without ever getting the nerve to carry that bucket to the designated pond zone and dump it. Anybody else notice this? Am I missing something? I am, of course, following standard 'ipPf' procedures. All zones are 'active'. The buckets my otherwise-idle dwarves carry contain stagnant water and a coating of grime. But I really don't see this as a problem. I'm not asking them to *drink* the stuff. I've tried it at both 3-deep and 5-deep water sources... it might have something to do with new hauling? Can I get an expert on the line?

others have encountered the same problem, also with cleaning wounded, so while I'm not an expert I can assure you you're not alone

Zones are broken but there are reports that wells still work.

But if you're trying to make a well from rivers or ponds, then you have a catch-22. My current problem: I had dwarves standing out there for what seemed like a year. I've essentialy given up on filling that well.

Dig a reservoir, divert the river into it, seal it, build your well above the contained water?

Listen up: making a thing a ‼thing‼ doesn't make it more awesome or extreme.  It simply indicates the thing is on fire.  Get it right or look like a silly poser.

It's useful to keep a ‼torch‼ handy.

Note that if you're using v0.34.08 that there was a water hauling bug which could cause that problem, but it was fixed in v0.34.09.
