Flat Volcanos...

...How? I want volcanos to not be way up in the air with steep slopes around them. What world gen parameters do I need to tweak?

Not really you just have to get lucky.

Obviously increase the amount of volcanoes in world gen.

One of the dwarfs walked in front of Thor to get a better view of the prye, and Thor kicked him irritably into the middle of the flames, which made Thor feel slightly better and made all the dwarfs feel much worse.

Max volcanism X and Y variance with more volcanoes, make the world low-elevation in general so that their terrain heigh multiplying has less to multiply, plop them down onto rivers/lakes with world painter.

On embark, volcanoes that are wildly off-center or right next to rivers/inside lakes are more likely to be flat, and looking at cliff edges/relative elevation can help.

Still even with all that, still but a chance.
