@ragundo: I recommend painting your question in green (any green will do) by updating your post, as the green color is a signal to Toady to read them (allowing him to skip or skim over the surrounding forumite chatter).

Thanks. It's my first time asking here.

So... now we'll finally be able to control the materials used in the workshop without resorting to fiddling with stockpiles. Neat!

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?
My ship exploded midflight, but all the shrapnel totally landed on Alpha Centauri before anyone else did.  Bow before me world leaders!

And specifications. I love digging through my statues, finding just the right ones, and decorating my mayors office with statues depicting the firing of their predecessors. Just to let them know they can be replaced.

I'm looking forward to decorating rooms with relevant engravings: temples will be covered in imagery of deities, barracks will be covered in imagery of battles and noble rooms will be covered in imagery of those nobles. It's a damned shame that there's no sort of engravings good for taverns or libraries.

Oh that is amusing.

Then I added adjectives in the announcement names of people when you don't know their names, so the combat logs etc. aren't so ambiguous. It uses their most prominent feature (either the body shape or a specific part)... except for long hair, since I haven't made most people cut their hair yet.

So next time I run into bandits with distinctive noses and ears, I'll know to target them first. Actually, wait. This leads to a question.

If you meet an unnamed character identified by a distinctive feature that can be severed (nose, ears, etc), what happens to their descriptive adjective if you lop the identifying part off? Does it pick the next available feature, replace it with "the guy with a missing nose" instead, completely fail to update the identifier, crash, or what? o3o

Reminds me of The Hobbit adventure game where every goblin had his own adjective. The nasty goblin enters, the hideous goblin goes south, the disgusting goblin attacks Thorin, with one well placed blow cleaves his skull, Gandalf says 'hurry up'...happy days. :)

Missing body parts adjectives could be 'noseless', 'one-armed', 'neutered', etc.

That last example makes me wonder how we know? I guess it falls into the same category as the extreme detail about all the internal damage we do to our enemies, but then we don't know their name.

I'd be okay with the leading cause of adventurer death being "The noseless, eyeless, earless one-armed, one-legged human x♂x punches you in the head, and the injured part explodes in gore!" :P

Cheese and artifacts/history, respectively. Or just cheese everywhere.

I've gotten a whole bunch of scholars writing books, for libraries. And taverns can have masterwork prepared meals or, as Bumber says, cheeses.

I've also received a couple engravings of historical festivals, which would also make sense for taverns, depending on what the festival is.
