Question about events at abandoned fortress
« on: May 12, 2016, 02:38:55 pm »

Hello all, fairly novice player here.  I dabbled for a while, but within the last year I've begun really playing the game.  I've had 3 prior forts for experience (plus a few more short lived or experimental builds) and have settled into my most successful embark thus far. 

A quick explanation: in 125 The Pulley of Hairs embarked on a 1x1 and founded Agedpulleys.   The first caravan got "stuck" just out of view to the SW of the fort.  Due to that, and a lack of bolts and skilled archers, the harassment of many keas and horned owls led the frustrated party to abandon fort.

A short time later, resized to a 2x2 embark, a new group reclaimed the area as Basementcontrols.  The entire caravan party was now visible and just hung out outside the walls for years. 

Anyway, on to the main question.  I continue having events logged as occurring at Agedpulleys, and others at Basementcontrols.  Is this just a 'feature' of having abandoned and reclaimed the area?  Is perhaps Agedpulleys tied to the the original 1x1 map coordinates, and events that happen in the other 3 quadrants link to Basementcontrols?   

I was just curious if anyone had any insight as to what determines which fortress my events are done at.  Perhaps I am just being ignorant to something obvious, but this is making storytelling slightly more difficult and was hoping someone would have some insight.

yeah, that's pretty much what's going on. If you resized and the old fort was there, weird things happen.
