Bones in bins
« on: November 07, 2008, 02:00:54 pm »

Simple suggestion -- for fortresses that do a lot of boneworking, the bone stockpiles can get huge due to each stack taking up its own tile.  Why not throw them in bins instead?

Yeah, bones and shells are small enough to fit in bins. In larger fortresses, even with a legendary bone crafter, I get huge piles of bones and shells.

It's like having a box of Legos! Except, you know, you don't put them together.

(unless you're me, that is.)

Speaking of that, you should be able to put them together. Into, like, thrones. I would turn the goblin armies into dining rooms!

Looks like a Flood tank form, from the Halo series.
Kinda.
