I have a goblin citizen in my settlement.  Assigned him to armor making.  Took me a while to notice that all the armor he's produced is sized for goblins.

I was actually super impressed when I found that out. Happened when I'd gotten a legendary human armorer by chance among the bards I'd allowed in. Set him to work making some armor since he was the best for the task at the time surprisingly enough, and out popped a human-sized steel breastplate.

Decided to give him a private workshop after that to make gear for the humans in my militia.

Don't goblins use the same size as dwarfs do?

No, they use ''narrow'' stuff as armor and clothing, as DF calls them.

Could not reproduce in adventure mode.  The dwarf could wear armours spawned on goblin and elf.  The armor was named identically but described as "sized for [creature]".

Damn, they haven't worn narrow clothing for over 10 years :P

I made a dozen standard water reactors and I found that a) they leak, and b) they glitch, momentarily losing one of their waterwheels output, about once a month per reactor.  I've seen posts about leaking but not about glitching.  I think I've figured it out, but why nothing about the glitching?  Do people not notice, or care?  Or am I seeing things?

Check out this micro water reactor. I made one the same as the one in the first graph. It's been working for years. I haven't tried multiple reactors linked together yet.

Gah, I'm not a fan of minecarts.  But if this works, maybe I will be.  It sounds doable, I'll give it a try.  Thanks for the help.

EDIT:  It worked.  Practically solid state.  Thanks again.

Indeed. It's solid and compact! I don't worry about the FPS drain mentioned on the wiki at all. I cap my FPS at 5 already.

Forbidding a cage trap's mechanism will not stop dwarves from reloading it. It will, however, stop dwarves from deconstructing the trap if you order it removed. This becomes important when you've accidentally captured a forgotten beast in a cage trap and it's sitting there spewing syndrome gas all over.

Additional note: Minecarts don't stop syndrome gas any better than cages, if anybody was wondering. (Annoying that glass terrariums don't stop it, too.)

It used to be that forbbiden mechanism stops dwarves reloading cage traps and cleaning jammed weapon traps. Now this doesn't work. This makes using traps very inconvenient.

This is, I think, all known behavior, but it's not in the wiki. I wrote this up to add to the wiki but apparently nothing I do, up to and including downloading a new browser, will allow me to see the captcha and therefore be able to post this on the wiki. Would somebody mind adding this section to Milk?

Code: [Select]
==Dwarven ice cream==

Milk has a [[temperature|freezing point]] of 10000 U, the same as [[water]]. If milk is left in conditions below this temperature, even on a tile marked [[tile attributes|inside]], it will freeze, and become "frozen ''{animal}'''s milk". Frozen milk is treated as a cookable solid {{Bug|2787}}, and may show up as an ingredient in your roasts--at 1/10th of the value of cheese, if the roasts do not just melt entirely. There is no entry for frozen milk in stockpile menus, so dwarves will not haul a frozen milk barrel to any type of stockpile. {{Bug|3398}} Attempting to dump the barrel to a [[garbage dump]] indoors carelessly may result in dwarves hauling the frozen milk and the barrel separately, resulting in a puddle of milk when it thaws. Dwarves will not make cheese out of frozen milk. For these reasons, milking industries should be set up underground, as Armok intended.

To move frozen milk to an indoor garbage dump without spilling it, do not use the [[Designations Menu]]. Instead, use {{k|k}}-{{k|d}} to mark just the barrel for dumping.

....So, if the milk that is thawed before it is hauled, can it then be used for cheese?

Sure, if summer rolls around, or, let's say, you pump flowing magma on the tile underneath for long enough...

Today, I found out making instruments is very tedious.

I'd rather spend a fortune and a half on whatever the caravans bring to me or whatever, than to grapple with that byzantine nightmare.
