I would love to see eskrima and krav magra
(I know I spelt them wrong  :P)
It would be awesome if stances could be sort of be ordered in training

Like how we can give the dwarves the weapons they use, also tag them to train in a specific way

   (*) Fixed problem causing dwarves to sometimes fail to attack monsters/invaders

I found out that if an invader its 'hanging' from a wall they are untouchable to my dwarfs, even stepping side by side
 by 'hanging', I mean:

CASE A) A goblin in the same z-level as dwarf:

FFFFF
w.f.w    |   w= constructed wall
w.f.w    |   . = empty space
w.f.w    |   f,F = floor
FFFFF

with a goblin hanging from the wall in any of those empty space, I give the order to my dwarf to attack (individually), and not only it doesn't attack he/she cancel his current station order and go to the barracks to train.

CASE B) A goblin in (-1) z-level (with water) as dwarf:

the dwarf its not going to attack the goblin (nor by command) BUT its going to defend itself if it is stand right at his side, after the goblin attack the dwarf procced to attack 'normally'

fun note: a dwarf can chop the foot of the goblin, even in a (-1) z-level (with war axe)

An unconscious goblin in the water does not drown.
My dwarf never attacked a goblin when both are in water... (maybe they got very little swimming skill?)
   the goblin DO attack and kill all my legendary dwarf, always.
   my dwarf even got less armor than the goblin, (iron helm, a couple of leather armor, and common clothes) (almost the same as goblin they got more armor)

I do have the save games. (the world is generated pre 40.24)
---------------------------------------------

Side note:
 I love to read the battles report, but its really teddious read it when you got 5 dwarf fighting vs 10 goblin, because when you read the report in every tick, there is new info and info your already read it, could you add some way to distinguish what battle reports has new 'content' to read?, and what 'content' its new from the last time you read it ??

and in the same topic, there is some way to personalize the detail of info of the battles ??

I know maybe this is not the best place to put all this info, but I hope to be read by toady.

thanks for the update =) !!!

Just read up on the latest developments from Toady. Poems, Music and Dancing, all randomly generated!

Well semi-randomly at least. All the dances are apparently deeply debauched.

Quote from: Toady One
A group of goblin poets had the honor of making the very first one, and they decided to call themselves the Fungi of Hell. After fourty years, five of the original eight founding members had met violent ends (including one that ended up in an elf belly), and another had left to become a baron at a dwarf fort, but they were still going strong with new members, including some bards and dancers and poets-turned-bard and so on.

Now THAT'S Music With Rocks In.

But they never would have given up either. And compared to sitting around in this prison for the rest of my life? Losing is fun.

Haven't tested this myself, but a dude who streams DF on occasion had 40.24 crash on him (and apparently it wasn't the first time, either). Can we expect another hotfix or two addressing crashes?

There should be another bugfix release period after the next release, which almost certainly will include well-documented crash causes. One of them is trying to build on tree parts.

Possible bug found: when selecting goods to haul to depot, the Seeds category listed wooden cages that had rutherers and mud snakes inside. (OldGenesis mod)
Can someone replicate with vanilla DF?

If the animals were tamed in those cages, that often ends up leaving seeds in the cage with the animal. Did you check that there actually aren't any seeds in those cages?

Yeah that's probably the explanation, did try doing some taming of the cave captures.

And I'm waiting for the day I can send an army to destroy an enemy settlement. When that day comes, I can finally say: yeah, my life was worth!
we all hope for that day we can finally strike and mine out all of those goblinite veins

Novel thought while we're waiting on .40.25...would you expect dwarves to sing, yodel, or joik?
