This is exactly the kind of mod I've been looking for: just sensible additions. However, I'm not bothering with DF2014 until DFHack supports it, so does anyone still have v.1.2.1 of this mod (the last supporting DF2012) handy for me to try in the mean time? There doesn't seem to be any way to download old versions from DFFD. Thanks in advance.

I second this, just selectively using files of the 'wrong' version didn't work for me, so I'd really appreciate it if someone could make v1.2.1 available somewhere.

My gosh!  This looks awesome!  I particularly love that you implemented nethercap pykrete.

Thanks for making this.  :-)

On grinding boulders some rock contains significant trace elements, would it be possible to implement a way to get a small chance to have any ore in the game as a product?

Edit: oh and grinding bones to bone meal for flux would be cool too..

I'm hesitant to make it easier to access ore, but I might consider say, a 1-5% chance.  Maybe. I'm not sure on that one, you'll have to sell me on that point given you're grinding boulders for sand in the first place.

As for bones to bonemeal, that is something I may well do.

Edit: i agree with that getting much higher than 5% would be overpowered
Edit2: sorry for noobish posting skills

The sand is the main product while a small chance for a random ore as a byproduct, many metals come as byproducts such as silver in tetrahedrite (or vise versa) or lead as a massive byproduct when extracting silver from galena, there are byproducts in almost every mineral processing, one alternative is you could make byproduct dusts to be compressed into blocks like the iron sand idea, so infinite* random ores for
those with the patience time and fuel

I understand the idea and all. 

I'm also thinking of adding sharp wooden spears for, you know, spears.

Makes sense if only effective against unarmored opponents, are these spears going to be fire hardened or is that implied

No, all "training" weapons are blunt.  They lack edge attacks.

Elf magic.  At least, that's how elves give any sort of wood an edge, according to the lore.

Greetings, is there a mirror for the 1.2.1 update?

If not, does the 2.0.0 update work with FD 34.11?

Unfortunately 1.2.1 is not mirrored, and I do not have a copy as the hard drive I kept a copy of it on kind of died.

Well, just leave the drive near a necromancer's tower.  You probably still won't be able to read the data, but at least it will try to bite your face off.
