elite/legendary fighters and profile tab with [v]iew
« on: September 23, 2008, 12:28:10 pm »

well it may be a suggestion, but for me its more of a bug:
once a dwarf got elite status in his fighting scheme, he get the "this hero dont have to work" in the profile tab. maybe it is so you cant change labor and deactivate their squad.

but i think its a bug that i cant assign my hammerlords some war dogs, or put a champion into the fortress guard, nor even i have to change weapon/armour setting in the military screen because its gone in the profile tab.

I don't know about assignment to the guard (although if you can't assign them to the guard, why are they staying in the guard?) but I definitely agree on not being to manage war dogs and equipment.

But it's so much work to take care of those dogs...

Never really noticed before (I hate managing the military and try to avoid it in general) but this does sound like an important missing feature or unintended consequence, or perhaps even a bug.

The assignment of weapons/armor can be done through the Military screen, but I'm with you on the dogs.
