This is great, I remember like 6 or so years ago when I learned that sending out squads was planned and being super stocked about it, and now it's finally here :)

I wonder how the success probability is ascertained, are the skills and stats of the dwarves you send taken into account?

It looks like the balance is kinda off, as novice dwarves are able to steal slabs from vaults.

On the topic of VC Runtime DLLs, technically you aren't supposed to be including all of those api-ms-*.dll files either - instead, you should be instructing users to install the Update for Universal C Runtime in Windows (KB2999226) from Windows Update (which they should have gotten 2 years ago if they're being responsible and keeping their system up to date).

It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.

In my fortress, tons of visitors visited me before i had a tavern. In fact, they visited me before i had a meeting hall. Is it a bug or a feature?

Ah yes, the insatiable lust of corn and rice, clearly two of the most erotic foods.

I've got the same crash at world gen, but there is something else: I'm convinced that before the update, I could get different history seeds on the same world by rolling the dice. Now world seed 1 will allways pair up with history seed 1, ws2 with hs2 and so on.. Even if I change subtle parameters like add or remove 2-3 civs, it rejects everything until I stumble upon that history seed that works with world seed 1 and sticks forever.



I've been testing all day nevermind

How does one get suggestions to Toady on linux?  I recently had an issue with my laptop being my router/firewall and changed to an USB installed linux.  It runs in loads from USB, run everything in RAM and saves the extra data to USB.   Linux doesn't really take a lot to run, this is on an old 800mhz laptop.   He could easily do this by just booting in.

The data would just need to be mounted from the current windows HD, so there's no transfer needed either.

http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=168289 (from this thread's first post) might be a good place for Linux-related suggestions.

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

Yeah, same here. Might be a feature, though, since spies need to be able to impersonate normal visitors, and you could otherwise prevent/detect spies by having no visitor locations. If you always get a few visitors regardless of your facilities, you can't be sure who's a spy and who's innocent.

Yeah, that one has to do with the vaults never having historical figures.  Drawing duels from pops has been a problem with all post world gen battles which we'll hopefully deal with before moving on.

World gen crash should be fixed with today's release, though I haven't started the process yet in case there are other issues I can locate and manage in the first few hours here.

Hmm, we thought we had dealt with this!  They aren't supposed to come before you have a tavern unless they have a direct rumor that there's an artifact on your site.  Bug report and saves on this one are appreciated -- the ideal save is a fort that hasn't been unpaused, but which is known to get visitors, as I may not be able to tackle the issue without catching them Thinking about coming to your fort.  Hopefully it'll be straightforward!

One interesting thing I noticed, change summary doesn't mention the biggest single-raw-file change: a massive overhaul of description color, density, etc of the trees.

Toady One, I have not had any questers or invaders ask for any artifacts. Any idea why?

Also I'm noticing relationships are forming again, did change anything about how they form while socializing?

Also rescuing prisoners seemed to have the same outcome of trying to retrieve artifacts from people.
