That normally occurs on the main screen or when the game is paused. No updates, so no slowdown I guess.

Regarding stuck flying creature, it was most of the underground creatures as well, once they got up on walls, and also some that got up in trees and so on.  I followed many different creatures off the map, so I think it is working now for all of the problem creatures.

I could probably use a few more saves to mess around with in the morale report (http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=7161).  A few pieces of it were fixed (with ambushes, hopefully), a few pieces are intended though they may be out of whack or badly articulated (strangers freaking out when you move at them with a drawn weapon, corpse fright, some peaceful bandits), and there are lots of plainly broken pieces -- I'll be able to work much faster to address the specific concerns people have with something concrete, since there are so many moving parts now and it's difficult to recreate the issues that are most annoying sometimes.

Remember the bug you found with treed night creatures freaking out because they saw nasties deep underground? Well, I've got something similar with vampires in mead halls. Well, I don't actually know what they are freaking out about, but given that they can see via heat vision several z levels below ground....

Other bug fixes/tweaks
...
   (*) Initialized strict pop cap to 220 if not present in d_init
...

So... if i like having 300 dwarves in my fort I'm hard capped to 220 anyway? Maybe I missed something...

Nope, it's only a hard cap if you accidentally remove the entry from the init file.  Just like with everything else there, you can change the value to match your preference.

If software was real world, then it'd be something equivalent of hitting a nail with a hammer and having a building collapse on the other side of town.

Don't worry people, sometimes -moments occur

Glanced into the file to check and you're right... I see it now:
[STRICT_POPULATION_CAP:220]
it's right under the regular pop cap if anyone is wondering.
I actually came back to edit my post, but you got got it before me. ;) Thanks

That's kind of assuming a lot, isn't it?  You don't know whether or not anyone saw your post earlier nor if it would have made finding the bug any faster if they did.

Perhaps, but it doesn't matter since it was primarily meant to be an example. (A super sickeningly sweet snarky example and I fully admit to that. lol) The principle of the matter is making other members feel welcome and helpful regardless, so that they will continue to try to help and not feel intimidated or wary about posting. If you're going to point things out, it's generally a good idea to make sure the other person doesn't feel stupid or invalidated, otherwise they'll stop trying to help. That is mainly what I was getting at.

Usually, people around here are fairly understanding and nice to others overall, unlike other very toxic game forums, and that's why I like it here. I'd like to keep it that way.   :)

====

On a completely unrelated note, how is this release faring so far? What are some of the major issues that are severely game breaking for this one? And can they be worked around or modded easily?

Just tried a reclaim on a worldgen fort, and was sieged by goblins at the start of the first summer, while I still only had my starting seven. Is that intended behavior?

Afaik since .40 sieges are no longer hardcoded. In other words, you'll get sieges when nearby goblin civilization decides to attack you, not when you're unlucky with the rng while certain criteria, such as total wealth or population, are met.

The common explanation for the sieges of ~10 goblins in the first year is "bandits".  I don't know whether that's the real explanation or not, but it's what everyone is calling them.

Bandits should be more in line with the old ambushes. Now every time goblins show up the SIEGE tag appears.

Not sure if you realize you're putting your reply inside the quote rather than outside, just saying.

If only the software supported nested spoilers, all would be well in the world.

Thanks for the update Toady.
