The only reason why I hadn't reuploaded this is because it wasn't checked/updated for the dN versions.  I guess now that there is demand for it, I'll update it and reupload it.

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

I always floodgate my tunnels where I know there are damp walls, but having them stopping at every turn is rather annoying. Jifodus' program is a blessing, for me at least.

And thank you kind sir, for updating it :)

THIS IS EXCELLENT

It is now residing on my desktop.

Thanks for the much-appreciated labor!

I'm not sure how much work would go in this, but could you add a button so it would also disable pausing when finding microcline etc., immigrants etc. ...?
Thanks anyways for the tool, will make it a lot easier to play on ocean maps :D

Expansion on the idea:

Allow the player to toggle pausing when striking nonstandard stone, economic stone, ore, or gemstones.

this makes me so happy, because my magma pipes seem to always have a large random layers around them under or above small ones when I'm trying to take their initial obsidian.

And this time next month you'll likely be doing it aaaaall over again. Cheers, it's a nice utility.

I am trying to make chickens lay bees as eggs. So far it only produces a single "Tame Small Creature" when a hen lays bees.
Honestly at the time, I didn't see what could go wrong with crowding 80 military Dwarves into a small room with a necromancer for the purpose of making bacon.

Jifodus: Thank you from the bottom of my heart! This utility does exactly what I want, which is to just dig the room out.

I owe you one.

Love,

Thank you for this two-fold, Jifodus. One layer is the relief of constant pausing and designations. The second is that I took it upon myself to start learning how to code just a few days ago, and your source is a great inspiration!

So thanks-thanks.

Edit: This deserves a sticky somewhere, or a good mention in one.

There is an engraving of three dwarves in a dining room. The third dwarf is a soaper.

It doesn't NEED to be updated with the new announcements.txt settings  >:(

Indeed, if you go into the Announcement.txt there are two lines.

[DIG_CANCEL_WARM:A_D:D_D:P:R]
[DIG_CANCEL_DAMP:A_D:D_D:P:R]

Just remove the P, which is the part that makes the game pause.  It will still undesignate, but I'd rather have it do that, then have to fiddle with turning on/off a mod all the time.
Especially since if I accidentally dig into the side of an underground river I didn't know was there...well, game over man.

Actually, it could still use updating. The new settings require you to go into and out of the ini, restarting the game if you want to change anything. Secondly, the game still cancels the digging designation and zooms you onto the area, even if your not pausing.


In terms of ease of use, interface, and sheer 'lack of hassle' this utility was, and remains, far better then what toady made. Sorry toady!

you can cancel the zoom to cancellation if you want, by taking the R out as well in the announcements.txt file, but there's still the need to re-designate all the tiles, so this utility is definitely still in need.
