Farewell to the outpost liaison data dump. You shan't be missed.
Fantastic news.

Funny thing, I have been relistening through the DF talk episodes and I saw in one of the older episodes "you should be able to see a world map that gets updated as people come through your fort" (or something like that) awesome to see toady finally implementing that!

How well defended are world-gen artifacts, do they ever get placed in tombs with the world-gen rulers? And if they are in fact hidden in the tomb are they elegible for quests?

What was going to be covered in the dev item "support for the journey" (seems to have been skipped for this time?)? Is that something like hiring hill dwarves and such to assist? Or sending ahead word for supplies to be prepared?

Once the myth gen is integrated, will we be able to see what the generator has created?

Obviously. It'll also be hypertext-like.

Did you know that cats that have mysteriously disappeared from home can come back after a few months without warning?

Actually what i meant was once you genned your world you could view the mythology that it generated, i just think it would be cool to look at all the random magic and such

Hopefully all that info will be readily available in Legends. Exportable too.
I imagine on Fantasy level 4 you're going to want to read carefully about the creatures you're going to try playing with and the weird magic they're capable of before you embark.

Yeah, although i wonder if the races could be genned in random materials?

Will probably include a "powerfulness" variable for materials. Nobody wants siegers made out of slade.

I doubt races will be non organic, as that will mess things up even more than they're already going to be. What would a fire based race use for sustenance, and how does farming/livestock come into play? This sounds like enhancements that can be added after 1.0...

As for extra dimensional creatures (Titans/FBs/Clowns currently) I believe divine materials, slade, and candy are already off the list.

They... wouldn't use anything, like goblins do now.

Goblins raise trolls and shear them for their wool to make clothes.

Would be a bit of a waste if random creature civs all ended up as titan-like critters. No need for food, farming, or anything. Utterly boring worldsim.

I like the part in the PC Gamer interview where Toady muses on how one simple innate ability (teleportation) should end up effecting almost everything we know about society. But slade hulks as actual civs would be a step too far, I think (but modders, go crazy, sure).

I thought you meant food. A fire civ would, for example, coat their weapons with fire to make them ignite people. Sorta like the draconians in my mod, but their armor ignites non-draconians trying to wear it, by the virtue of being dragonfire-hot.
