Wasn't the elven diplomat fixed?
« on: August 04, 2014, 04:11:25 am »

Wasn't this fixed in 40.05?

The elves have shown up many times, C shows them having a diplomat, but he never shows up at the fort.

Yes, it's supposed to have been fixed in 40.05

But if i remember well you need to have at least reached the point your mountainhome makes your fortress into a Barony, and so have Baron in your fort for diplomates to contact your fortress.

I'm a duchy. Elves were just here, no diplomat.

Then it's a bug and the bugfix isn't working right, you should report it on the tracker.

Great, hopefully we'll finally see a working fix for this long standing problem.

In previous versions adding in the elven diplomat meant he/she would come nearly every seasons.  Pretty sure the diplomat only comes when you have chopped down a certain number of trees.

If you have clear cut all of your forests and still no diplomat seems like a bug.

This is not correct - diplomats only come once per year, but they always show up once first contact has been established, and first contact happens at the very beginning of the year once you have a LAND_HOLDER appointed.

A copy of your savegame would be useful, ideally posted on the bug tracker.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.
