Is there an in-universe explanation for how/why an elf is able to devour 80 humans in a single sitting?

They're evil?

I think he wants to know how their bellies have room for all those humans. I think defecation doesn't exist in the game yet.

I'm wondering who created the curses_640x300.bmp tilesheet?

Probably the same reason you don't need to haul dirt to the surface, and why you gain more metal by melting down bolts and coins individually - mass isn't conserved. Energy isn't either, hence impulse ramps and underground agriculture.

Why is it that dwarves lie about their feelings, even when speaking to themselves about it? Such as "I am not afraid" or "I am not satisfied" when their thoughts menu says otherwise. Does it have something to do with a propensity to sarcasm/dishonesty, a bug, or something more specific?

Underground agriculture would be posible if they only raise mushrooms I think.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

That paragraph, probably is more of a list of of their most recent notable thoughts, not their thoughts at the moment. And there no timestamp when they had those thoughts.

Yes there is. Current thoughts are written in the present tense 'she feels terror in battle' as opposed to 'felt' and recently, yes I've also seen that accompanied by the opposite reaction in the quote, such as 'I laugh in the face of death' (that example isn't necessarily a bug though, just bravado to cover real feelings).

"I am not afraid" and "I am not satisfied" are when the strength of the emotion was too low to have much effect at all on stress, as far as I know.

Will your full-on site attacks count as a declaration of a civ level war, or will they be like the domestic conflicts between sites you sometimes see happening in human and goblin civs?

How do you choose which bugs to fix? Is there a particular filter on the bug tracker that you look at?

There are at least two (related) criteria that are used:
- Bugs recently introduced, and
- Bugs relating to things under modification.

The first one is about fixing recent bugs/omissions, while the second one is about taking care of things when the code is already opened up and the memory has been refreshed. In both cases the code memory is decently refreshed, saving on refamiliarization time.

Crashes and game corruption are at the highest priority.

It's very exciting to hear that you're implementing looting! Will there be specificity on preferring what to loot, and will worn gear (Backpacks, etc) have an influence on what can be carried,
 or are these deferred for future arcs where they'd be more relevant?
