Remember Planepacked? I just made one. Here's how.
« on: January 10, 2013, 07:25:34 pm »

Storytime!
I had a dwarf go into a strange mood and claim a clothier's workshop.  Nothing new there, so I didn't think anything of it until I noticed that she had been gathering cloth for over a year without so much as a break.  I have always wanted my own http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/Planepacked so I decided to turn the full power of my fort towards meeting her cloth demands.  And I kept this up for about a decade.  I figured that she wanted something on the surface, so I was patient and focused on other things while he gathered more and more cloth.  Eventually, I had removed all items from the surface and brought them into my fort, but she was still collecting cloth.  Eventually, I figured out...

The bug that I exploited!
Due to some fun at the beginning of the fort's history, I have a very large hospital zone.  The clothier's workshop was in the hospital zone, so everything that this dwarf claimed actually belonged to the hospital.  As such, she would gather forever.  When I deactivated the zone and she finished crafting, 3463 cloth sheets were used in the production of one artifact turban.  I believe that, like Planepacked, the turban contains the entire history of the world.  This exploit should work for any artifact requiring cloth in a hospital zone.

The point where I need your help!
How do I get a text dump of this artifact?

You sir are a gentleman and a scholar. Sadly I do not know how to get a text dump though I suppose it is straightforward. Try searching the forums or looking at the wiki?

If I have my way, the insane vampire mayor.  It's been an interesting fort.

Edit:  Wait, sorry.  The vampire stopped being mayor when he went insane.

Don't tell anyone that you can see their shadows. If they hear you telling anyone, if you let them know that you know of them, they will get you.

It's a dwarf.  Their natural habitat is "trapped on the wrong side of a wall".

Flinging children halfway across the map to land in magma is good, wholesome fun, but extramarital reproduction?  Why, that's just unseemly!

What was the value of the artifact, for curiosity's sake?

He likes the color green, metals, flowers, olivine, and rain for its beauty. When possible, he prefers to consume tea. He absolutely detests social interaction.

Less than one unit, which is kind of baffling.

I like how it's recursive so many times.  Also, how could you let Udib Anguishgalleys die of thirst like that, you bastard!
