"... because of the water on the level above."

This will disable the announcement, pause, and undesignation of warm stone and damp stone.  Former versions, which no longer work with the most recent version of DF was able to independently enable/disable the feature. However, the current version will always disable both, since the previous behavior was really complicated and I didn't want to completely rewrite the patching code for the new version.  Therefore this utility is slightly more dangerous if you've got both magma and water in close proximity, but losing is much more entertaining.

Awesome, except for when you're digging into an aquifer from the side...

Obviously you're already supposed to know that what you're digging is safe. ;)

Even better would be to only disable the PAUSE. Then your dwarves would just quickly let you know you've hit damp stone, undesignate, and move on. You'd have a nice line of undesignated spots where you know it's dangerous. Then if you want to breach, just redesignate.

That's actually simple enough for us to want it as an init option: pause on damp/warm stone warning? y/n

This is a fox skull helmet. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It menaces with spikes of fox bone and is encircled with bands of fox leather. This item is haunted by the ghost of Alfador Angrorung the fox.

For the record, undesignating can suck when you've planned out a complex shaped room, such as circle shape or whatever. If it auto-undesignates a large portion of the diagonals around the edge, it can be a bitch to reset them properly (many a time I've come across this, re-designated, only to find out lated I had dug out the damn room wrong in some small way).

But I digress, this little utility thing makes me happy in my pants. Kudos sir.

Any chance of getting this working for any of the 40d series?

The World Without Knifebear A much safer world indeed.
regardless, the slime shooter will be completed, come hell or high water, which are both entirely plausible setbacks at this point.

The magma part does, at least.

Edit: It just occured to me how long ago the last post was. Sorry.

Even better would be to only disable the PAUSE.

Ideal for me would be to pause BEFORE the dwarf cancelled the job, so you could redesignate and he wouldn't wander off

Yeah, that's a great idea. I hate when they always pace back and forth all the time when I dig under my Incinerator channel.

I loaded up my save in the new version, spent a minute trying to find my archery range before figuring it was the room with Xs down both sides: bins of ammo and archery targets.

I have to agree with rom, since geocities went down, "just dig it out" went with it and it's driving me nuts playing without it. I'd be grateful if someone could rapidshare it or upload it some other way. Thanks in advance.

personaly, I'd take the annoyance of canceled designations over the chance of annoying fun of flooding the fortress.

Doesn't make any sense, when you need to dig bellow your own pool of magma, and getting canceled every tile. Also you can turn it on or off any time.

I like the undesignate-but-don't-pause option someone mentioned before. It's a pain in the neck trying to dig anything under an underground pool when it's pausing every couple seconds.
