Req: Init-fied Imigration
« on: October 09, 2008, 06:33:10 am »

I don't know about everyone else, but for me the immigration process happens too fast. I end up with over 50 dwarves rather quickly and with above ground fortresses it's really difficult to provide enough housing for everyone. So I personally would like to have a simple percent modifier in the init file to change the amount of immigrants received based on wealth.

Another thing with immigration that makes the DF obsessive-compulsive disorder in me go all angsty is having a punch of cheesemakers running around making everything but cheese. It just feels so... wrong. I think a option to make all immigrants peasants in the init would be really nice.

Cheesemakers nonwithstanding, I would LOVE a cap for immigrants per season.

Not a bad idea actually, and shouldn't be hard to code in also. [I guess at least  :-X]
..not to mention that killing the unnecessary immigrants can be quite annoying over time.  :D

I'd rather see it pulled out to the raws than in the init, so it could be a race/civ-based thing.

A) Generally speaking you use a Barracks so aid in housing until you got the materials.

B) Yeah we will probably need Imigration in the Init eventually or part of a Civilisation code. (For example a race of Trees probably wouldn't immigrate very often... but a race of lemmings would probably do so in great numbers)

Confirming an init setting for max immigrants, if toady really wanted to get technical I guess he could implement an option that turns immigrants away.

Personally lately I've been finding that if an immigrant wave comes, I pick off one or two immigrants then "bin" the rest.

On the subject of immigrants, can we please have them NOT arrive with pets? I am getting tired of dumping mule owners into magma.

This is a very frequent request. Well, that in the OP, not that in the post above this one.

If I wanted to recreate the world of one of my favorite stories, I should be able to specify that there is a civilization called Groan, ruled by Earls from a castle called Gormanghast.
You won't have trouble supplying the Countess with cats, or producing the annual idols to be offerred to the castle. Every fortress is a pale reflection of Ghormenghast..

If only they stuck with mules.. at least mules don't breed.

Couldn't you just make cats not pets in the raws?
