Tantrums. One hit with a spinny rock kills.

Ah. If you don't want the water to freeze, you need a cover over it. Don't have your well/reservoir lead directly to the surface, dig down then sideways.

Also, people are engraving nothing.
and by nothing I mean images of nothing.
I had one of those engravings during my "Mastertea" playthrough. The tile was actually that of a dwarf. This probably occurs when an image of a tile that doesn't exist is engraved.

Really? Well, someone needs to tell one of my newly dead engravers to stop carving them.

I've been trying trying some practice creature modding, and my modded creatures all seem to have the issue of not, well, existing. How can I correct this error.

If they don't exist in the arena or even as errors in the log, your file header is incorrect.

To know for sure...

Have you added the file name header up at the top of your file (ie, "creature_gnorm_new" or whatever your file's name is)? Added [OBJECT:CREATURE] after that, before the raws for all your new critters? Is the file named "creature_xxx" - ie, starts with "creature_"?

Those are the reasons I can think of for why critters might fail to exist.

Generally, when one is conducting an experiment, it is worth noting that the observers went insane, killed each other, and then rose from the dead.
It's like DF inhaled a peanut.

I forgot to do that... oops. Thanks for the advice; I feel like a fool.

Little known fact: Albert Einstein had trouble balancing his checkbook.  Get good enough and the fundamentals suddenly seem strange all over again.

Subject: New Creature
Trial #: Lost Count

Report: The experiment, I suppose I can say, has made a step in the right direction. There is an issue, however, with its stability.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Subject needs fundamental changes to its structure in order for it to exist.

That's the spirit!

Make sure to connect creature's head to body before bringing it to life.

If problem persists:
- Does the creature have functional tissues that allow it to do things it was designed to do, such as see, breathe, and grasp things?
- Specifically, did you add a (usually internal) brain and nervous system?

Several other gods/universe designers/creation workers found the above useful earlier.

Yeah, that's definitely a brain issue. If it doesn't have a brain, add NO_THOUGHT_CENTER_FOR_MOVEMENT.
