What do you mean by more ages btw?
list of ages here, though most ages are based on adlibbing names of creatures and such.

I'm aware of that list. I'm asking if he plans to ever add new ones, maybe connected to new mythology stuff, or something like that.
Hmm.
Actually, are gods are planned to ever be RAWable?

When the mythology generator happens there might be a rewrite of the way ages are named, but as it stands the existing ones are pretty comprehensive.

regardless, the slime shooter will be completed, come hell or high water, which are both entirely plausible setbacks at this point.

Will the newest update, which includes construction in adventure mode, break an adventure mode save I make now in .06?

Is it possible to dig/channel in adventure mode?
Will Bone carving and butchery adventure jobs be restricted to specific workshops, or there will be no changes?

Probably will be, but I guess not in the same release where we'll get woodcutting/construction

Toady has said in df talk several times that he doesn't like the idea of using workshops in adventure mode, so likely workshops in adventure mode will be specific to, for example making furniture and other "large" objects

Will necromancer adventurers be able to get their zombie minions to help build in the next version?

Do you have a will or some other similar apparatus set up so that, in the event of some tragic event (perish the thought) leaving you unable to communicate, the source code for Dwarf Fortress will be made available to the public?

Toady One has mentioned that his will specifies that the source code be released upon his death... unless such death is suspected of being motivated by getting access to the source code.  Living wills (for the case of inability to communicate) are more complicated, and I don't know if Toady has one.

It pays to be prepared, but this is a pretty morbid topic.  Hey, we get to build houses in Adventure Mode!

Who would ever kill Toady for the game code? WHO COULD DO SUCH A THING?!

Houses.  Adventure Mode.

Houses. Better yet, stone axes. I'm still waiting to see if Toady's decided to make that happen via harvesting branches from trees as a first step.

Since I'm fairly certain I was the derp to think that up (though the "conjure logs from thin air with an axe" thing in WF was what inspired me to find a different option), if faked branches as a growth becomes vanilla I will be happydragon.

Especially since adding faked growths to all the trees is almost as time-consuming as modding venomous creatures to drop venom sacs. :V

Or you could wait a week, and then you'd have happyplayers [not outtokillyouplayers] as well as regularish updates for the next update. Srsly, killing Toady is never the solution.

Killing goblins, however, usually is.

ON TOPIC NOW!

Toady, do you ever plan on making spears and such able to attack from a longer reach?

If it were up to me, I'd redo some of the combat code, allowing dwarves armed with certain weapons to attack from one tile away, but I have no idea how hard that is, how long it would take, and how buggy the result would be.

Toady, do you ever plan on moving away from tiles/increasing the resolution of tiles? Of course, this would likely come WELL after multi-tile creatures, so the question is a little premature.
