It's a forgotten beast. I thought/hoped it was a titan, a specific FB is way less likely to show up at my fort (though it is a smaller sized world).

Okay. But what is it? A giant fire breathing bunny? A web slinging toad? A diamond dog?

Sorry. I need this information. It's important to me. And I might be thinking of drawing it.

No like, it is super important to me too. But my legends only describes it as a forgotten beast. Dunno.

I hope it will show up to the fort. This is a megaproject fort so it should go on for some time.

I wonder if I could capture it and include it somehow in my project?

So, I killed all my dwarves with DFhack (because I had like 1 fps and it crashed when the season tried to change) and when I reclaimed, now there's smoke everywhere for no reason whatsoever (I checked, there's no fire anywhere on the map that's visible and it's a bunch of random spots where there were corpses)

Did you use the DFhack command "exterminate"? Because that makes them literally disappear in a puff of smoke.

That would explain it then.... is there a way I can use DFhack to remove smoke?

For me, it typically just disperses naturally after a few seconds. Then again, I have never mass deleted over 100 souls, so...

If there is a way, you can probably find it in the DFhack documentation.

Yeah... sounds like that part of the world is just uninhabitable now.

How do you know it was crashing when the season changed?

Not quite. Specifically, it removes all of their blood, which should make them die on the next tick (without smoke). However, that doesn't work for zombies and a few other creatures, so to work around that, it also sets their "vanish countdown" to 2, which makes them disappear in a puff of smoke in 2 ticks (but only if they're not already dead).

Basically, unless you used "exterminate" to get rid of undead dwarves, chances are the smoke is from something else.

I need to stop answering questions from experience and start doing bloody research...  :-[

Because the save was on the 27th of the last month of summer and it crashes at about that time (I don't know for SURE, because I haven't actually stood watching DF for long enough for it to slowly creep to the end (I watch youtube and check back every so often)

Oh... well then I have no idea why there's smoke all over the areas with the dwarves that I killed with exterminate, is there a way to remove smoke with DFhack?

If there is a way, it is not listed in the DFhack documentation's list of basic scripts.

I'm not aware of one either, but I'd just like to point out that that's not the only place you can find commands. Here is the list of all scripts, and here is the list of plugins. The search feature is also useful.

It turns out that there's a script (modtools/spawn-flow) that creates smoke, so I'd expect the reverse to be possible, but I don't know if anyone's written a script to do it.

A giant, Birod Largebristle the Hardy Nut, decided to visit my fort.  He ran into the middle of my settlement before my military could intercept him, then hopped down a ledge to pick a fight with my miners.  A few ticks later, Birod was yelling "Help! Save me!" while Anu Viperlast the Digger repeatedly planted a pick in his guts.  The giant passed out from exhaustion without landing a single blow, and then my miners took turns mining his skull until Anu got the kill.
