That certainly explains why post-battle cleanup would drive forts to near insanity in 44.10.

@Splint - I think you meant dizziness - that's what the ichor causes in this case. I left drowsiness-inducing stuff to the spore clouds which are more like the creeping clouds of gas you occasionally see - they don't cause coverings but if a dwarf wanders in they'll get affected by the stuff. Think those are easiers to avoid, and they don't leave behind spatters or any other covering.

@Teneb - do you know which positive emotions are of a similar strength? Ones that'd make sense, anyway - I know rapture is equally strong but I wouldn't think it makes sense for a mysterious light-blue fluid raining from the sky that makes you numb and dizzy.

When the horror was causing the cancellation, DT was saying (-100) for it, but also (+100) for the joyful ichor's effect, so it seems to be related to currently having the thought of horror rather than a cumulative stress effect.

edit: Despair did it too. I used dfhack to make remove stress beforehand, it started raining ichor again, and my farmer went out for a drink. The drink was cancelled because of the active thought of despair, and definitely not because of stress, since her stress is -96.6k.

There's a list

Adoration is -1, for instance. But appropriate ones might be Bliss, Delight, Joy, Jubilation. I left out a few -1 emotions like Lust and Love for obvious reasons.

Read the template at the top of the page. It's outdated.

Anyway, is there a way to decrease the frequency of freakish weather? It's pretty much nonstop.

I could change the frequency of it from weekly to monthly - went with the first since it was the "standard" for vanilla weather types, going by the example raws.

Freakish weather can make otherwise nonthreatening places unlivable now thanks to the stress rework.

It's one of the few things that makes me long for the good old days of 34.11... Then I remember I like not needing to clearcut forests to build one small house.

This seems like something only the Toady One can solve. Something has to be done about freakish weather itself in how horrifying it is, or clean self has to be not cancelled by being freaked out because of being covered in goo, although that really wouldn't help in my situation, as I didn't have any covered bathing areas. They were using the brook, and promptly getting recontaminated after they got out.

Does MONTHLY really work as a value for the frequency tag? The wiki only lists WEEKLY as a valid value.

It lists both - there's apparently YEARLY and DAILY too.

Uploaded a small update - added more emotions to the joyous ichor as said, and changed the time for it and the evil biome rains from weekly to monthly. I've also altered some of the creature classes for some of the creatures - some of it is additional classes for resistances against magical attacks (most good glacier creatures now have the water/ice elemental creature class), others are for compatibility for some races I'm working on.

I'm taking a bit of a break from modding for now (aside from minor fix updates like this) - once I'm done I'll probably work on an Ars Goetia pack and an update to my main pack (maybe I'll start working on a non-lewd monster girl mod too since some people were talking to me about it). Hopefully in that time I'll be able to finalize designs for the civilized races, predatory creatures and megabeasts that are supposed to go with the setting of this pack and my cave revamp. I'll also start working on the albums for this one to both finish up the lore and to showcase what the creatures can actually do.

Minor bugfix update - heavenly steeds should properly fly now, also Barbusians had their front legs improperly attached to their upper body rather than to their lower body.

Minor update - I altered the wood templates to make them more in line with the ones from my other packs. I also added pet classes to some of the creatures to make them compatible with some of the new races I've made for my main pack.
Vast majority of bird creatures also now have a "peck" attack if they didn't have one before or if they had the "beak jab" attack - the peck does piercing damage. The only exception is the Silverbeak from the good marshes, which keeps its blunt properties - it is still renamed to "peck", however.

Quick hotfix - added profession names to some creatures that were missing them - also altered the existing ones for Hell Temptresses and Swarm Maidens to make them more in line with other female-only creatures.

Minor update - changed some of the identity names (prophets, pilgrims, criminals, etc. - also instead of "peasants" there'll be other terms) for the intelligent, playable creatures to be more fitting. Fixed up some minor oversights as well, and I also did a slight design alteration to the Anguished Sorrow and Desperate Fury creatures from the evil badlands. I also added some creature classes for compatibility with races I'll be doing in the future.
