Is this a smart-assed reference to the Steam clusterfuck? At least it BETTER be smart-assed.

If you actually thought this was a Steam game, I will eat you. :V

Apparently, the main concern is not that they stole information (which, ar worst, would be IP adresses of everyone accessing the site), but that the DF download got infected with something nasty.
I have no idea whether that's possible, but I'll hold an eye out.
At least somethings's being done, what with the server migration and all.
Weird. Flying DIce said in that post something about people "who have had a hate-on for B12/Toady in the past".
Are there people who actively hate him? But why?

Engraved is a superior rendition of an image of Arkoth, the local deity of balance and speech, and two elves. Arkoth is burning the two elves. Arkoth is laughing. The two elves are suffering. The image was commissioned by the Round Guild, a local dwarven government.

Completely irrelevant to the above, but can giant animal variants be tamed by NPC civs? I ask only because if they can be, certain awesome LotR scenes can be recreated, and giant war elephants can only be amazing regardless.

This is the internet. If there's more than five people liking something, there's a sixth who hates it so much that they swear they will not rest until it's gone and dead.

It depends upon what the raws say, the I think that elves can tame giant animals but nobody else can other than the player as they have [PET_EXOTIC] in the raws rather than [PET].

Does the personality of a leader determine the nation's foreign policy during worldgen? I've seen evidence to support it.

Water and liquids is something that the games never really done well since it was 2d, the lack of flooding from a river and the lack of a cave river as well as magma one makes the game feel a bit less then it was. Are there plans to change the way liquids work at some point so they allow flooding as well as be better on performance as well as moving across the same z level faster then it is now?

Might rain also be done a bit better so it crosses different bioms instead of just raining perfectly in the biom that its allowed too?

This might be asking too much but how viable would it be to allow the game to be able to change the course of a river that might be prone to doing so? (Was thinking yellow river)


Well that was a lot about water and not about aquifers.
