I didn't get an answer in the Steam thread, but this doesn't add baby graphics for any of the layered creatures like dwarves or goblins, right?  The beta branch files didn't look like they had any new graphics or raws changes to support that.

Hmm. Seems that this has only added the XML export.
What happened to the pops information ('p' in 47.05)?
I use that every time I gen a new world to check populations to see how my latest mod tweaks are working. Don't really want to export XML and load into Legends viewer every time. That'll take ages.

It doesn't. Layered baby graphics is more work and would have delayed things.

Yes, this.

@Putnam: Some are muttering very darkly on Discord and Reddit about an XML export update, how it'll (presumably) potentially just all be a big Adv mode sideshow, which I don't think any of us actually want, right?(Ediit: that is to say: it being a sideshow to the Adventure Mode release per se, is what we don't want, to be clear.)

I for once absolutely want an adventure mode because I need to eventually update Adventurecraft, which there's currently no point in doing given it's an adventure-mode mod. :<

Also, front page news block still only mentions 50.06's release.

Try hitting Refresh. Says 50.08 for me.
Wait, are people seriously saying somewhere that they don't want Adventurer? I couldn't really work out what people were "muttering darkly" about from that last post.

Yeah, the forum's header is still saying latest version is 50.06.

And honestly while I still haven't been able to set aside some dosh online to get the steam version, the fear of adventure mode going the way of giant desert scorpions and curious underground structure is the other thing keeping me from getting it for the time being.

While stuff like better tilesets and mouse support and all that are really neat and probably great for new players, my main reason to move to the steam version would be to continue work on my main mod, which isn't really feasible at the moment since no adventure mode.

Though honestly I've been busy as fuck with other projects like contributing to BN as well as IRL stuff, and I'm basically going to have to recreate Adventurecraft from scratch because the raw folders are structured completely differently, so even if we do get adventure mode back I'm not sure how long it'd take me to get it in working order. @_@

Some people relied on this to get rid of worn clothing dwarves abandon in their rooms.

Perhaps dwarves should relinquish ownership of clothing they replace (as well as soldier food they drop.)

You really think they're going to spend the year working on upgrading Adventurer and then say "you know what, we don't want it after all".
How long have you followed development exactly?

As I've had to say again and again every time someone tries to start shit over me raising this concern, just because it isn't likely or logical doesn't mean I'm not going to worry about it anyway until it's actually safely back in the game.

[50.08] (*) Cleaned out lingering data from autosaves and manual saves that could cause corruption if multiple worlds were active.

This bug caused a lot grief since the Steam release in December, refunds, bad reviews, and many people (mistakenly) blamed it on mods. Can anyone confirm if they are still having trouble loading saved games now?



0012018: Crash to Desktop on loading game during Loading Units phase:

0012145: Game crashes on save after caravan leaves map:
https://dwarffortress.mantishub.io/view.php?id=12145
(Report: 2023-04-17 - 02:39 - Still not fixed in the current beta. Now the game hangs in "Offloading units" for longer than usual but still crashes nonetheless.)
