Does this mod have any weapons do extra damage against specific types of creatures?   Such as sharp or pointed wooden weapons doing extreme damage against vampires to match a wooden stake thru the heart OR silver against were-type creatures to also match the legends in our history.  If this doesn't exist would this be something which could be added?

** Also the DFHack called   DwarfVet enabled  always crashes the game after the doctor finishes diagnosing the animal. **

** Game crash seems to only happen if the hospital and animal training zone are also setup as a Pen/Pasture for animals... might be bug in DFHack.**

I have two questions:

1. Why does this mod need to come with its own .exe? What exactly does that enable it to do that it wouldn't otherwise?

and 2. Does the blood helmet rebellion work with the current version?

Hi SpeardwarfErith, it is easier for me to release it standalone for a number of reasons. Eventually I will release the Stater Pack again, and that does have many advantages for both me and players such as customized tilesets for the mod.

I have heard of mixed results with blood helmet rebellion going back to it's original release. I'm unaware of how functional it is in the 44.12 build. Your mileage may vary, but if you let me know what seems to the problem I will look into this further for you.

Hi NTJedi. Yes, many night creatures and monsters are weak vs. silver. Other materials do various types of damage, such as lead which is the next most common material weakness.

Thank you for the DFHack info. DA:III is not tested to perform with DFHack, so any insights you can share about potential crashes are very welcome.

So far DFHack autodump and teleport have worked without any problem.  I use the autodump because dwarves seem to ignore most of the requests on dumping dead animals into the dump zone I created. Even when ten dwarves are listed with no job... 5 out of 7 dead animal bodies will be ignored.  I had to use the teleport because my dwarf was stuck in a tree and it was a tree without fruit, not sure how he got stuck.  The dwarfvet command works as long as the combined hospital zone and animal zone do not also include a pen/pasture zone when you have wounded pets.  Basically I only use DFHack when something logically should work yet does not work... such as healing animals, moving dead animals or a dwarf climbing down a tree.

Thank you again for this. I strongly suspect that DFHack will work the same as with vanilla for the type of stuff you are doing. The only known mod specific snag I've encountered: is world generation sometimes fails while DFHack is running. This may be avoidable as well.

When do enemy civilizations begin attacking?  I started in an area which listed three enemy civilizations, but so far no siege attacks after four years.

I'm aware of large sieges after year five. It can vary a lot depending on a number of factors. What is your population cap? Have you had ambushes? What are the three enemy civs and how numerous are they? Are they at war? Since 40.x player fort sieges have remained rather mysterious - including in vanilla.

Here is the best information I've found:

My current fort has 75 dwarves with a population cap of 110 and strict population cap of 140.  I started on year 210 and its now year 214.  So far I've only had to fight wild animals, wendigos and were_creatures.  No ambushes or sieges yet.  The Serpentmen(Serpentnakashic) have twelve locations populations ranging 100 to 300 and all about one day travel reporting 'peace'.  The Greater Minotaurs have seven locations with populations ranging 100 to 300 and all about two or three days travel reporting peace.  The Kobolds have six locations with population ranging 100 to 1000 and all about two or three days travel reporting peace.  There are many wizards and rogue civilizations near them as well so maybe they're just busy with them.  There's other different enemy civilizations on the map within reach as well, but they didn't appear when choosing Embark.  For example a dark goblin fortress with a population of 4000 and two days travel and instead of peace it's reporting "no contact".

Thank you for the details. Very odd that there are no ambushes by now. That could be a clue that the region is wrapped up in its own situations or that a nearby lair has monsters killing lots of units.  There are no technical reasons that would prevent ambushes or sieges that I'm aware of. What is the exported wealth of your fortress?

Question, what is required to set up an arquebus squad? Moreover, how do you get them to reload?

Hi Srip121, Dwarves should use the arquebus the same way they use crossbows. By creating a squad using the Archer uniform and ammunition. If that is not working, let me know what is happening and I will look into this further for you.

Well what ammo do they use? Because they pick up the arquebus but refuse to pick up the ammo? I have both loaded cartridges and bullets.

Thank you for reporting this. Dwarven bows are not working correctly either. I looked into it and ammo is missing from the raws, which means you would need to generate a new world to fix this.

You could modify entity_default and entity_dark_ages Dwarf/Legendary Dwarf raws as follows and generate a new world, if you feel like testing it. I know what would not be easy, but here you are:

Code: [Select]
[WEAPON:ITEM_WEAPON_CROSSBOW]
[AMMO:ITEM_AMMO_BOLTS]
[AMMO:ITEM_AMMO_CARTRIDGE]

This should work without adding arquebus to world generation or having Dwarves show up with them. Which is something I want to avoid.

Is dfhack support coming ?
Can't live without Filter function in DF.

Also i can't seem to generate any world right now, every world that is generating crashes in few years.
I am using advanced world creation btw.

Hi Perkel, DFHack is not required by the mod - but it is reported to work fine for most functions. Are you attempting to use DFHack during world gen when it crashes? If so, try generating a world with it off.

If you are running into issues with any function in DFHack, let me know what exactly and I will look into it for you.

Hello,  I'm having an issue where half the friendly visitors which arrive whether dwarf or humans begin destroying buildings.  It happens as soon as they arrive into my fort.  They are not having a tantrum since even after a year they only target random archery targets, memorial slabs or statues and not having an emotional breakdown since they always keep their clothes on.  How can this be fixed?
