Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I remember seeing or hearing, a few years ago, that there is a way to find the position of a specific creature in the game using dfhack. Is that still (or was it ever) possible? I'm having trouble finding a beast in the place where it was last seen.

It's almost certainly possible - DFHack can access pretty much anything that DF stores in memory, which includes unit positions. And if it ever was possible, it wouldn't have been removed. The exact strategy depends on what you're looking for. Are you looking for a unit on the fortress mode map (i.e. can you select it with u or v)? Or is it something on the world map? Or the local adventure mode map?

There was a typo in the siegers' campfire code. When the fires went out, so did the game.

There was this Roc who is most certainly alive (it doesn't show him dying in legends mode), and apparently he's in a fortress called Treatymyths, but I've explored the whole place and I can't quite find anything. So I guess he could be anywhere on the world map

If your adventurer is in the fortress and the roc is hiding somewhere in it, the roc should be in df.global.world.units.active and once located the pos(ition) field should give the coordinates. However, I don't know how to locate off site creatures.

df.global.world.units.active

Yeah, they basically are suspended jobs. Were you using autounsuspend before you reclaimed?

Maybe there's a way for autounsuspend to detect buildingplan jobs, but I'm not sure. Checking for "unknown material" might do it.

I thought I was, but I spun up a new fortress and I can't have been. I must have had it off while I was building the initial fortress.

That's the DFHack location of one of the unit vectors inside of DF which can be accessed with scripts (which you'd probably have to write yourself to get exactly what you want) or the DFHack gui/gm-editor.

The "resume" plugin draws over planned buildings (which are suspended) with a green X, and other suspended buildings with a yellow X. I've found what it uses to do that, so I think I can get it to work with autounsuspend too.

Ok, for one thing, you spelled "cheese" wrong. And for another thing, you can't just guess syntax for commands and expect it to work. createitem takes an item type, then a space, then a material (then optionally a number). You gave it just one argument before the number, and it's unclear if it's supposed to be the item type or material, so it won't work like that.

Here is a page on the DF wiki about createitem: http://dwarffortresswiki.org/Utility:DFHack/createitem
I searched for "cheese" and found "CHEESE" listed under Materials -> Body parts. The example syntax given is:
Code: [Select]
item CREATURE_MAT:creature:material
where "material" should be replaced with "CHEESE", "creature" with the creature you want (e.g. "COW"), and "item" with the item type.

That same page links to http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2014:Item_token for a list of valid item types. I searched for "cheese" and found "CHEESE" listed, so replace "item" with "CHEESE".

I'll test it in a moment, but I think that should do it. You can add a number at the end if you want, of course.

Edit: yeah, that works.

You could also try gui/create-item if you prefer GUIs. See dfhack.readthedocs.io for help - it takes an argument that lets it create multiple items at once.

I get overwhelmed easily.. Could you show me what the full command would look like?

Yeah, that was unclear, sorry. You need the item type and material. You're still only giving it one. ("item" above is an argument to "createitem", not equivalent to "createitem", so you need "createitem" followed by the item type, then the material.)
Try
Code: [Select]
createitem CHEESE CREATURE_MAT:COW:CHEESE
or
Code: [Select]
createitem CHEESE CREATURE_MAT:COW:CHEESE 200
etc.

Did you try gui/create-item? I found that it worked pretty well here.
