Better aboveground farm clearing
« on: Today at 01:03:24 am »

Currently the only way to have viable aboveground crops is to gamely channel a wide portion of ground or use a pump to spray the ground (natural irrigation the real world way doesn't work in DF). Irrigation where you channel away from a running river should fertilze the ground a couple tiles near it and clear out all the troublesome rocks for farming. This will definitely help if you play civs that are most aboveground based.

A huge amount of effort has been put into discussing how farming can be improved over the past 15 years. Please don't ignore it all.
