Glitches with Caravans?
« on: December 05, 2015, 01:28:21 am »

In .42 recently I have been having loads of fun, but I am having a few problems. I started in a large forest and started carving out my fortress below. After making the rooms and work spaces I saw that it was the time of the year the caravan would show up so I made crafts.

It did show up eventually, On fire.

The liason arrived first, and he was perfectly fine, and approached the leader and did his usually speech, but the first pack animal that arrived was a flaming two humped camel. It quickly realized the that this was not it's natural state and panicked, ran around lighting the forest on fire. as the other pack animals loaded in, so it decided to run towards them, spreading the fire to those pack animals. this was treated as an ambush and they caravan left, with the only remains being a flaming camel corpse, a entire forest burned to cinders, and the mountain homes probably hating me for having a caravan burn down.

Well, anyway has anyone else gotten this? I was in a fairly average enviroment, Warm Coniferous forest, no aquifer, etc. Also post any interesting things merchants of visitors have done for you while your at it.  :)

That's weird, but awesome in a bad kind of way. :)

The most unusual thing I've seen a caravan do was back around the .34 days. On a few occasions as soon as the wagons entered the map they bolted at super speed to the depot. I think even faster than bolts fly through the air. The ones with just a pack animal moved at normal speed.

 I do n't really know about bay, but  some peoples in rus community had this bug. Moreover, one of them understand that it meant. He had all his embark dorfs in flames and deside that bug relative to embark items. After some try we know that ROCK POWDER cause bug because of realy low auto-flaming temperature. So if you ask caravan to get it for you, you guaranted has it in flames.
