It's still my old world, but the thing is, it didn't happened in worldgen, it happened during gameplay. Civ was wiped out during worldgen, and regenerated as I was doing a sweet and eventless adventurer travel. But I can give you the current save if you want

Thanks. But unless I can play as humans, there is no point :'(
Right ?

Well... all race playables mod is installed on the save, so technically you can.
Since I'm writing the story of this world, I'd just ask you not to report stuff on this save :3

Thisis my pet project, it will probably never be finished. So far I recorded the period between the end of worldgen (125) to 142.
The last relevant part (130-142) is available on forum. When I'm ready to continue, I'll unlock the thread but right now it needs to rest

I figured out that you could use stockpiles as survey markers when doing large projects. Just pick a stockpile type you aren't likely to use, and you can lay them down 31 tiles at a time. I did that to mark out the moat on my current project, a hillfort-style above ground human settlement designed to raise and equip an army for raiding the local elves. It doesn't have a high wall, just a wide moat with a covered gallery overhanging the inside edge by two tiles to prevent climbers while giving me a chance to shoot back. Three drawbridges provide access, with the fourth wall holding my keep. The whole thing is 100x100 in area, providing ten thousand tiles to play with on each level.

Press 'm' when designating things to activate marker mode.  ;D

You can then switch it to normal designations with... Alt-M, I think?

Its m again to switch back to standard mode, its a good method for marking out tree root squares without losing the shape of your construction by removing a tile of designation.

Forgotten beasts can be made into husks.

I'm probably way more excited about this than the situation warrants.

You can actually raze necromancer towers to the ground, complete with the supposed government being driven out. Haven't checked if the structure itself is affected in any way, yet to see if anyone can come and reclaim it somehow.

This is a Bay 12 Forum Post. Written on the item is a signature entitled Thoughts on Signatures, authored by Dokta Yut. It concerns the elaboration, selection and display of forum signatures. The writing is very concise, yet it has a touch of humor. Overall, the prose is not awful, but not very good either.

appearently an egg laying entity can lay eggs telepathically.
once you designate it to a zone with nestboxes in the zone, it can lay the eggs - it doesn't matter if it already is in the zone - the eggs will just appear in the nestbox.

Im quite definitely sure that they need to make contact first, then brood over it.

Is this in regards to egg laying sentients?

I discovered that dwarves can sleep underwater.

They won't initiate activities like sleep while in swimmable water. But if you dump water on them, then they'll keep doing whatever they were doing. Including sleeping. And they'll get swimming XP while asleep.

this is what i did: create room with a few nestboxes, create zone n N assign all feathery stuff there - and before even one animal was within the room, a dwarf brought 5 guineafowl eggs from the nestbox to the food stockpile.
