Am I the only guy who regularly paves his underground soil layers that aren't specifically designed for farming?  I never did like random moss and such growing all over my nice uniform soil tiles.

The most annoying part is that I now need to dig -what is it? 5?-  z-levels deep pits if I want to keep grazing livestock inside my fortress :P

Artificial caverns for tree farming sounds like a totally dwarven thing to do. Rock on!

9 to be safe - Fungiwood and Tunnel Tubes grow to 8 z-levels according to the raws.

The good thing about artificial caverns is that they aren't infested with wildlife unless you set said wildlife loose yourself. So the bigger you can dig them, the more material you can safely get. Besides, the higher the trees/shrooms can get, the more logs you can get from each job done.

They need to stop growing upwards when they reach stone, Im sure Toady will end up doing this...

They're nearly as bad as badgers. Build a couple of anti-buzzard SAM sites marksdwarf towers and your fortress will look like Baghdad in 2003 from all the aerial bolt spam. You waste a lot of ammo and everything is covered in unslightly exploded buzzard bits and broken bolts.

Nope, me too. Churning out blocks and paving soil floors = good mason training

In a fat-fingered moment while setting up another military squad I accidentally created a captain of the guard rather than a militia captain.  His squad of near-legendary hammerdwarves equipped with high quality silver hammers then took it upon themselves to dispense justice to all the mandate breakers in the fortress.  It was quite messy.

Arguably, growing up through stone is a feature, not a bug.  Real-life plants will eventually bust through stone.  It just takes a little while longer than 0.40.04 takes.

I never bothered because generally when I'm setting up my crafting area, I'm trying to get stuff dug and set up ASAP with the starter kit 7... I don't have the dwarfpower available for this sort of "mini-mega" project.  I usually pop the first cavern within a few months of arrival just to see where they are and what's down there.

FWIW, my crafting area is usually a giant open square centered on a 3x3 stair stack with sorted stockpiles; central square is surrounded by 3x4 craftrooms with doors.  This lets all the stoneworkers get access to the stone pile, etc. while still letting me wall off failed moods easily.

Trying to pave that would be a PITA.

I'm new to succession forts in general, yes, but do all forts designed by multiple overseers inevitably degenerate into a body-filled labyrinth of chaos and despair like this? Or is this just a Battlefailed thing?

There isn't much middle ground between killed-by-dragon and never-seen-by-dragon.

For those who haven't noticed, Toady just fixed http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=7535, so hopefully this won't be as much of a problem in 0.40.05.
