I need help on building things....
« on: January 24, 2008, 03:40:00 pm »

Can anyone tell me why the line "Needs Bed" comes up when i try and build a bed?
Also when i try and build a chair it says "Needs Throne".
They are both in red.. and i cant build any of those items... xD

Constructing an object isn't done from this menu; the build menu *places* or *installs* the object.  To actually build a bed, you need to build a carpenter's workshop (uild - [w]orkshop), then [q]uery the workshop, and [a]dd the task to build a bed.  Once the bed is manufactured, you can place it in a dwarf's room with the build menu.

Check out the Dwarf Fortress Wiki, it's a real savior.

And in the future, go to the Gameplay Questions subforum.

That being said, I should probably think of something witty to put here.
