I guess the new emotions will determine temperament?  But what about non-sentients?

LIKES_FIGHTING was only used for the "takes joy in the slaughter" thought -- it didn't determine fight-or-flight responses.  That all has more to do with LARGE_PREDATOR and BENIGN and that sort of thing.

Oh, okay. Thought for a minute I'd see hydras running like foxes because they didn't like fighting anymore. Thanks Toady!

This morning I rolled out of bed and went about my usual routine;
step into slippers,
turn on computer,
feed cat,
[take thyroid medicine, use the toilet etc,]
open Chrome,
check bay12forums for a new Dwarf Fortress version,
check Wikipedia news for Earth-shattering events,
read/play something while eating breakfast...
But today there was a break from the usual.

Today I danced with joy across the room to open my curtains, then sat at my computer chair staring past my monitor out the window...
***
The noon-day-Sun shines a lovely 60F / 16C on the temperate forests, and orderly fields of the Rhineland.
A nice breeze caresses the 200 meter hills and valleys occasionally, bringing the smell of fresh air.
The streams flow merrily along; content from the gentle rains that are common here.
In the pastures, the horses, cows and sheep munch happily, the mice roam carefully.
In the woods & thickets, the deer lay hidden, the boars ghost, the pine martens bound, and the foxes sniff.
In the trees jays screech, pigeons flutter, the blackbirds fuss, starlings work, the peckers tap, the crows caw, and the tits carouse.
On the border between field and forest, a 10 pound grey streak stalks slowly towards a grazing hare of the same size, but as the moving blur gets within 2 meters,
the rabbit senses or hears something with its tall ears, and makes a leisurely dash 10 meters away to stop and listen.
The wildcat disappears back into the forest undergrowth- the overpopulation of voles make an easier meal anyway.

A watchful eye is kept on everything by the many birds of prey that glide and perch in the sunshine.
***
Fruit harvesting has come.
All is right with the world.


Minor exception in rightness with the world due to overabundance of humans, and save-game incompatibility... but you can't have it all now can you.  ;)

So, the notes were a bit ambiguous on this point, but are "bean like" plants usable for farming?  There was mention of them being problematic, but was that just for wild variants?  Does the note about all edible growths being harvested include the beans, and are they edible / usable if harvested?

I've been really looking forward to this update.  Even if only fruiting plants are usable for farming I'll be happy for a while.

If I remember, the beans don't have any edible growths, just growths (the pods) that contain edible seeds (by tag), and for farming to be successful you have to eat some seeds but also keep enough to replant.  So it's sort of a hassle that hasn't been handled.  The dwarves currently don't even know how to get the seeds out of the pods at all, so they aren't useful in any way yet.

Yeah, that's what I was vaguely remembering from earlier releases and what I was afraid of.  I was hoping there'd be a new shelling job or something, but I can wait for whatever the final result is and just use other kinds of plants for now.

The dwarves currently don't even know how to get the seeds out of the pods at all

Now I have a mental image of dwarves standing around a table with a peapod on it, scratching their heads.

Now I have an image of Urist running up to split the One Pod lying on the table with his war axe, and failing miserably Gimli-style.

Notice that stepladders can't stack on top of each other to make a poor man's ladder in adventure mode.
