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.

I never knew those pages were a thing. Thanks!

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).
Actually, it might. Creatures can attack your fort no matter where they come from. Bastiongate killed or captured every single FB in the world.

......

I.......

have a sudden need to make a fort whose sole purpose is to create a zoo (complete with gem or glass windows) of as many megabeasts, Forgotten Beasts, etc as possible. Stated goal is to capture: Killing (or allowing) even a single (on-Fortress map) Forgotten Beast is considered a tragedy.

Dwarves are replaceable. Forgotten Beasts are not.

......

no, not just Mega/FB Zoo.

ALL OF THE THINGS zoo.

So during a routine goblin siege, I noticed one of my 2 legendary Weaponsmiths was in a fey mood, with three shiny blue wafers in his forge. Grateful for fresh live fire targets for my all female scholar Xbow squad, I finish of the siege and wait with baited breath for Sigun's glorious culmination of his life's work.

And then this:
     

My "F*** YOU SIGUN!" resounded through the neighborhood and startled my wife. Keep in mind, this is after a candy ring, a candy amulet, AND a candy mace. At first, Sigun was going to die from magma, but then I thought of a better plan. Burrow him in, lock him off, and build an arena. He has until I finish my inn to forge his own armor, and train himself. The inn's opening ceremony will be one on one gladiatorial combat with the previous live-fire targets, culminating in a battle with my captured dragon. If he lives, then he will have proved his creations worth. If not, well, he should have made something useful. Either way, I'm sure it will provide excellent entertainment for the opening festivities.

That is the perfect weapon for a hammerer!  Instead of "*BONK*" you get "*dink*".

Are you kidding me he has a Colosseum where the gladiators forge their own weapons and test them in combat. Way better than practicality.

Here is a smoke-removal script, for anyone else who was following the smoke discussion on the last page and was interested.

There was a typo in the siegers' campfire code. When the fires went out, so did the game.

Currently I am working on my first above-ground fortress. Nothing much has happened yet, save for a few pesky giant vultures. The ultimate goal is to slay the forest titan known as HawkWasps that is currently ruling this world. This will be fun.

I embarked on an evil biome, hid unground and watched all the unholy soot pass by without a care.

Built up a bit, then in summer some migrants arrive.  And unholy soot spawns on top of them.

They drowsily climb down the hatch, and I see they're all rotting and blind.
My surgeon leaps in to action, trying to remove the rot.

A bit later the first one dies to blood loss.  Oh well surgeon, you tried.
Second one lasts a bit longer, dies of blood loss.
Third one..I look and the surgeon is now a master surgeon.
The patient dies still but it takes a while.

Last one now.  He's on the operating table for ages, the surgeon is now a legendary surgeon.  Legendary 2.  Legendary 3. 

I noticed e the rot in the patients body is minor rot instead of advanced.  Is is possible?
No, it jumps back up to moderate.

I have a look in df hack, it says " permanent necrosis power 100"
Oh well!

Eventually the last migrant dies of blood loss.  Im not sure if the syndrome goes away if the unholy.soot is.washed off, but I think amputation is the only way.

Pets keep trailing around rotten feet.   Im making lots of leather boots and gloves now.  Well see how long.we last.
At least seiges would be fun.

Rotting clouds. I have less harmful ones in my current embark. If your surgeon manages to exercise all rot, the dwarf will be healthy again, barring infection.

As for sieges, the first time one gets caught, all their weapons will be coated. Unfortunately, I believe the effect is tad too slow and local to truly affect melee combat, though a single rotting wound can cause a fatal infection if you wait a bit.

A more interesting question might be: If a dwarf eats dust-coated food, what rots? I know they may least pull a recover wounded request on this...

Construct a tavern around the containment cells, and create a system that periodically feeds a captured goblin invader to a randomly selected beast. Surround the containment cells with fortifications and windows, so that the visitors can see the beasts but the beasts can't shoot anything at the visitors. I'd also vote for hall of legends if this gets built. Once you have captured every beast in the world, pit them all together in an epic arena battle and murder the survivors, so that there are no more mythical abominations to haunt the world.

A battle between every beast in the world... yes. Though unfortunately I don't think forgotten beasts attack each other. Seeing them do battle with a hoard of clowns would still be entertaining though.
