We'll need to see how smoothly Antmen are handled first.

I'm fairly confident Tyranids would work well.

What kind of damage would the Shootygaunts weapons do?

I'd laugh like mad if we had a world with say... 150 different races from all kinds of genres, films, games, etc. and after 9000 years, the only thing left alive were kobolds.

Since nothing starts wars with kobolds, it would probably happen.

Oh damn now i can see discussion in my minds eye that evolve around "Chuck Norris" as Megabeast and head of the civilations of "texas rangers". The next points in this discusion will be how to mod bowman with education from the "imperial marksmanship Acadamy", if the 150 Pokemons from the first game are enought and if an pokemon race can support more then 600 castes. Oh and who said terrans didnt get Nukes and Phyrexians are to overpowered. Not to mention short sidediscussions like if McGyver schould serve as God for dwarfs or the elves.

Pokemon as a creature with a multitude of castes...

This sort of has to be done now.

Inspired by these raws, I wrote a program to translate from the old style plant matgloss files to the new plant raws (hoping to eventually extend it to translate everything - though creatures may be a bit much to ask for)

In testing, I noticed the following differences not attributable to flaws in my program:

dwarven sugar and dwarven syrup will be edible raw
some seeds have changed colors. prickle berry seeds are dark green and sun berry seeds are bright red (both were formerly dark grey)
some powders have a color that is a color token. redroot dye is BROWN, others match their dye color. dwarven sugar and flour and longland flour are WHITE. whip vine flour is AZURE.
whip vine flour's ordinary color has changed from white to cyan.

Now working for wood as well as plants, and some preliminary work on creatures. Stone will be trivial to add, metal I still need a way to interpret DAMAGE_PERC/BLOCK_PERC.

So what will you be working on now Toady? As I see it only things need working on are filling up the creature raws and finalizing the wound system and I could see a nice Wound release by the beginning of next month or a bit later.

Dev log's your friend: "250 worth of wounds and health care concerns, 29 on descriptions and some skill/att stuff, 65 on venom, 165 for map features, 260 for entity positions, 195 for squads, and 75 for random crap and tests."

The 40d re-release should be out soon, but the real next version probably won't come out until after February.  Maybe not til April.

Stop likening squats to real dwarves. If they had been dwarfy enough, they would have survived and would now be sitting as supreme rulers of the damn galaxy. For Armok's sake, even the bloody elves outlived them.

Disgraceful.

If they were Tucker's Kobolds (D&D reference, for the uninitiated), yeah... I could see that. A billion traps, corridors like an endless shooting gallery, flaming rolling logs and lines of pitch that suck the very oxygen out of the air when ignited, narrow passages larger creatures can't get through, five billion types of poison coating everything...

Truly, a worthy enemy of dwarfkind.
Great idea too.  The Ultimate Showdown Supermod!
So... will Mister Rodgers with a machete be the last non-kobold standing?

I'm really looking forward to the next release though. I'm planning on using the new body tags to create a massive, 200 creature catalogue of new demons to fight when you breach HFS.
