Hi.
I've been playing vanilla 44.09 and two things are as unwieldy as ever - picking construction materials and managing animals.
I know DFHack provides plugins for filters in the respective menus, but I was wondering if there is there a way to, for example, configure what meterials show up for constructuctions (b-C) in a configuration file or somesuch without setting up DFH.

The construction menu sorts material by distance. So a custom stockpile near the construction site that takes from the general stone block stockpile.

That's the best vanilla solution, which I use frequently.  It used to also improve construction speed considerably since random haulers could bring stones or logs closer to the building site for the carpenters and masons to use, but now that anyone can help with constructions that benefit is somewhat less significant.

Is it possible to gen a world with no evil rain or evil clouds?

I 've tried setting the "number of evil rains/clouds" to 0 using the advanced world gen but I still got goblin blood rain in my embark.

So the conclusion I'm getting here is that we use QSPs because dwarves can't pilot submarines.

Does it carry syndrome? If it doesn't, I guess that's as mundane as it can get in an evil biome.

I don't know, I abandoned that embark before my dwarves would come in contact with the rain. I was hoping to get a reanimating biome.

Rains are coded as individual substances. If you look at an uncompressed save and search for "[INORGANIC:EVIL_RAIN_", you'll find the substance and its accompanying syndrome. This is called later in the file (search "[INTERACTION:REGIONAL_"), the specific line being either [IT_MATERIAL:MATERIAL:INORGANIC:EVIL_RAIN_1:WEATHER_FALLING_MATERIAL] or [IT_MATERIAL:MATERIAL:CREATURE_MAT:ELF:INDEX025:WEATHER_FALLING_MATERIAL] (with the 'evil rain' number and creature changing as appropriate).

tldr: No, it doesn't carry a syndrome, because goblin blood doesn't have a syndrome attached.

I don't know, I abandoned that embark before my dwarves would come in contact with the rain. I was hoping to get a reanimating biome.
The region that rained elf blood also reanimated, so those two things aren't mutually exclusive.

I am trying to make chickens lay bees as eggs. So far it only produces a single "Tame Small Creature" when a hen lays bees.
Honestly at the time, I didn't see what could go wrong with crowding 80 military Dwarves into a small room with a necromancer for the purpose of making bacon.

Is there a way (aside from building roads everywhere or constantly chopping them down) to reduce the number of trees on my embark?

I chose specifically to embark in a savanna which had supposedly scarce/sparce trees and now a few years later the whole map is so full with sapplings that they just spawn new ones the moment I chop the older ones down. It's becoming more of a forest with each passing month.

Saplings don't grow into trees if the tile they are in has more than 4/7 water or an item, and they won't spawn in underwater either.

Road it.

hmm a Venice - style town sounds like a good idea for my next fort.

For now I guess I'll have to resort to building roads. Thanks Magistrum

A while back, stockpiles used to prevent tree growth too - so you could just put stockpiles (accepting nothing) all over the place if that still works?

When dumping an item down a hole, does it fall straight down or deviate a bit?
Plenty of metal and flux on the higher Z-levels but none on the levels with the magma works; a dump in the middle of the 3x3 central staircase would fix both transport and stockpiling issues.

IIRC, everything falls straight down unless given horizontal velocity by minecart or drawbridge.
