Ooh. Like the new battle reports.
Here's one from my poorly planned attack on a tribe of monkey people (modded civ):

"In the late summer of 169, the cockatiel man Irendama Stirredkisses outmatched the dwarf Ilral Ringprestige with a cunning plan, and the defenders had a strong positional advantage in Potloder".
"In the late summer of 169, The Tiredness of Halls, poorly lead by the dwarf Ilral Ringprestige, clashed with 10 giant rhesus macques in Potloder."
"In the late summer of 169, the dog Eshtan Tradesneers clashed with ten gorillas in potloader".
"In the late summer of 169, the dog Eshtan Tradesneers was struck down by a gorilla in The Ageless Hills".

Great stuff!

My 0.44.05 fort is crashing when I try to pillage :( guess it's time for a new fort/world
Also time to submit a bug report (crashes are almost never expected behavior).

I suppose I should. I'll do it after sleeping

Yeah, though some instability might be unavoidable with the new battle code; they are riffling all over memory now, in some places that don't get looked at often, so it's bound to draw things out, and there's lots of opportunity for error.  Hopefully it can all be sorted out reasonably promptly.  At least some of the new messages are proving to be funny, he he he.

Awesome!

Regarding this line:
Quote
Made monster-type critters and non-monster-type critters have proper hostile again
What exactly does that entail? Is it related to the LARGE_PREDATOR token? I noticed that critters without it were often more aggressive than the ones with it, which seemed like a bug.

Secured tribute from local elves, but the message says it's "to be delivered from Faintglitters every ."

Will make a bug report. Need to know when elf tribute is coming.

Incidentally this was a demand for a one-off tribute so it shouldn't be coming "every" anything at all.

I think it is just related to friendly megabeasts. I found that adding NOFEAR and a natural skill level of discipline helps to make predators aggressive again. The update might've fixed this, only one way to find out.

Thanks Toady!

Apparently we can't set the initial dwarves with military tactician skill. An oversight?

They're not monster slayers?
Haven't had any visitors yet (no tavern or open caverns yet).

They are all monster slayers indeed. I opened a cavern already, but i think all visitors are supposed to come after building a tavern?

Monster slayers want to slay monsters. They'll sleep in the dirt just fine. Opening the caverns attracts them. That's working as intended.

However what's a little serious is that the moment a stolen animal is assigned to my militia commander, it goes beserk and attacks someone. Unfortunate when its a dog. Fun when its a giant war cheetah. Crazed behavior is preceded by said dog fleeing from it's pasture the moment it's assigned.

Poor militia commander is getting shaken because nobody's burying his beloved pets...

Here's the crash report: http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=10605
0.44.05 save in 0.44.06

I am currently playing a native 0.44.06 fort and will report if it happens in that one as well
