Looks like this thread has become an Official Steam Official Announcement Thread.

That second picture of Scamps is just lovely.

Seeing as the cabinets have drawers... drawers were first invented in the 17th century, beyond Toady's limit of 14th century or so. Before that people used wardrobes and chests, both without drawers.

But I'm just nitpicking. It looks great.

Graphics suggestions will probably be seen and remembered better in the graphics threads.  :)

It is not a suggestion anyway, just pointing out . It is a very minor thing.

Maybe they became common in the 1600s but after a little googling I found older examples from the 1500s, but nothing about the oldest known furniture with a drawer.

I reckon dwarves with magical "mechanisms" could be let off for inventing the drawer a few years early. Or just use the "proper cabinets" mod, no doubt available in Steam Workshop on day 1 due to the obsession people have with historical accuracy in fantasy games.

That's funny, I find the dwarves' use of their mechanisms to be completely historical and realistic! 
 :P Anyone who questions their use of the "universal" mechanisms should be banned from this forum  :P

Oh, I quite agree. All historical accounts of 14th century dwarf fortresses mention mechanisms...

The Complexities of Statues
What kind of material should a sunfish statue use? What pedestal? What decorations???
Hello!

Statues are one of the pieces of furniture in Dwarf Fortress. You generally use them to increase the value of a room, or as the center of a room when you designate an area to be a sculpture garden. This is a place for dwarves to hang out and admire the architecture, which generally makes them happy. The statues can depict particular people, historical events, abstract shapes, artifacts, and more. Of course, up to this point, we used the same text symbol for every statue, made the material give it one of a few colors, and left the rest to a sometimes lengthy paragraph description, including whatever engravings or other decorations might be found on the object.



After Patrick drew lots of new images and adapted many additional images to the statue format, we're finally able to begin showing some portion of the details! This is my coati hall, with eight coatis and a coati person. There's also a sunfish enjoying some time in the waves under the moon. The colors of the statue give some indication of their material, various stones I located in the mines. It's a strange room, and I shouldn't be in charge of decorating anything, but my dwarves enjoy the space, because they don't know any better. There's also a visiting human monster hunter there, possibly confused.



The pedestal indicates the quality of the statue, and also reflects all of the decorations (spikes, hanging rings, engravings, etc.) Damage and spatter are also indicated. This statue has been encrusted with oval cabochons and given little menacing spikes.

I think I now understand why a statue of something can be path-blocking (mostly!?) when the original something can at the very least be crawled past...

It's the plinth!

Nice, but honestly I think this is over the top. But maybe I just want the Myth and Magic arc to finally start.

Funny thing is, it doesn't even represent what the statue looks like. That statue of a sunfish is likely "three sunfishes prostrating themselves before a hydra. The hydra is laughing".
