Dwarf Fortress 0.44.06 Released
« on: March 09, 2018, 07:57:03 pm »

Here's the first substantial update to the fortress's world map screen.  New raid options are available, and it shouldn't be hard for you to antagonize your neighbors now if that's what you want to do.  Use the 'd'etails option when preparing the raid to set what sorts of actions you'd like your raiders to perform.  Skills and equipment matter, and skills can be improved during missions.  The skill of your best tactician is important (you'll see feedback in the mission report.)  If you demand tribute on an ongoing basis and the target site agrees to your demands, you'll receive something like a merchant caravan on an annual basis a few seasons after the initial demand.  They'll drop goods off at your depot and depart.  These goods can be carried off immediately for storage, but there's a new report so you can look at a complete list of what was delivered; the same is true of spoils from raids.

A few notes on the bug fixes below:  the identity fixes won't stop bad feelings from existing conflicts in old saves.  Also in old saves, distracted animals might still appear to be broken at first, but they should sort themselves out after a bit.

New stuff
   (*) Can pillage and raze and demand tribute from other sites
   (*) Dwarves on missions can now can gain skills
   (*) Military tactics skill is now gained and matters in off-site battles

Major bug fixes
   (*) Fixed several problems causing the meeting queue to get gummed up
   (*) Made monster-type critters and non-monster-type critters have proper hostile again
   (*) Allowed people in the same squad to know each other's identities
   (*) Made scribe copy job cancel properly to free up materials
   (*) Fixed calculation of available writing materials in library

Other bug fixes/tweaks
   (*) Various speed tweaks
   (*) Made clean job work inside and on outdoor constructions
   (*) Made clean jobs continue to nearby tiles
   (*) Made drunkenness make you less private instead of more private and fixed a typo there
   (*) Made dwarven adventurers experience trances properly
   (*) Made non-historical populations defend sites post w.g.
   (*) Made off-site raid stealth success depend on site
   (*) Fixed broken flags on merchant historical event
   (*) Stopped dwarves being dragged to cages/chains from trying to clean the floor
   (*) Stopped live generals from being elevated from zombie populations
   (*) Stopped animals from developing need for alcohol after experiencing trauma
   (*) Stopped unintelligent creatures associated to civilizations, like domestic animals, from worshipping gods when given historical status
   (*) Stopped animals from revealing the location of artifacts to questers
   (*) Stopped animals from forming grudges and other chat-based relationships
   (*) Sped up legends loading in high-artifact worlds
   (*) Stopped rooting around in the dirt from resetting path
   (*) Fixed issue causing certain older army units from not appearing
   (*) Fixed a few errors with abstract skill calculation for armies
   (*) Reconciled bandit's map and in-play valuations of opponent strength to stop aborted ambushes
   (*) Disallowed certain flying/swimming/visual/projectile/attack moves involving half-stairways
   (*) Made branches/twigs burning over walls leave behind a floor properly

Awesome! Do the new raiding options work in old saves? And do stuck visitors leave when porting an old save (assuming we're not using any modded alcohol "fixes" and it's as it should)?

Edit: The moment I loaded my fort in the new version, around 20 visitors instantly left the fort and ran off the map. Works!!

For modders: no raw changes found.

You claimed you altered booze effects, right? Nothing showed on the raw side, was it hardcoded stuff?

Changes to alcohol are planned for further on as part of the stress fixes according the dev notes.
Unless you mean the privacy thing. That was a case of the raws being correct and the code calculating it incorrectly. There's no change to the raws for that.

--edit

And woohoo! New release. Yay, etc.

That's what I was asking about, yeah.

Well in the meantime, have a bug related to any hypothetical rebalance of booze raws: http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=10604

The DF bugfix notes can be hilarious sometimes.

Darn it, was hoping for a fix on the get-stuck-traveling bug for when squads go on raids. Still, great update, very excited, much fix.

Also time to submit a bug report (crashes are almost never expected behavior).

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

I didn't get a Spoils Report for my second raid.
On my first raid they came back with both mission report and an accurate spoils report, the second raid only left a mission report (in which it said livestock had been stolen).
The dorfs did indeed come back with a juicy tame saltwater crocodile for dinner, so the mission was successful.
