Floating Gobbo...
« on: November 21, 2008, 06:43:35 pm »

Yeah. I got sieged, and one gobbo has been launched into the air and staying at the same square for a week. No obstacles around him, except possibly the gobbo cages next to him. I'm trying to remove them before spring hits so I can be ready for the elven caravan (free wood! :D) but I'm not even sure that would bring him down. I've also dug an entire channel under him, to no avail.

Two words: Target Practice

Alternatively, you could get dwarf companion and manually set his positioin 1 Z-level down.

He's considered "flying" as in "knocked along the ground by a hammer." Which means he can't be shot, or examined. Anyway, I restarted that winter and got no sieges, just a couple of ambushes.

in the alternate universe, he is still floating there, being tortured for all eternity for believing he could disobey physics and get away with it...
Good Job!

I wonder, If you built a platform up to him so he was standing on it, would his status change?

Most of the time when someone is described as politically correct they are simply correct.

No.  When this bug strikes, you can teleport them to the bottom of a magma flow and nothing will change.

I had that bug too some time ago. I bet he also doesn't appear in the (U)nits list, am i right?
In my game I used Dwarf Companion and after switching some 2 flags he became normal, but I don't remember which flags they were (I kept savescumming and trying with Companion until it finally worked).
