I don't know if I've posted this before, but one time I tried to recreate Colossus from the X-men in DF via modding, and I went through a period where not only was JUST his skin was made of the proper material, but also he vomited actual magma at regular, unprompted intervals. I never figured out what I did to make that happen, after I messed with the materials and got his tissues straight he stopped.

My facepalm is first of all making that modding mistake and second not saving that raw as-was because that was pretty awesome.

Whenever DF doesn't recognize a material, it just replaces it with the default material INORGANIC:NONE, which is magma. It's pretty great.

Yes but why was he vomiting. It was at all times, for no reason. I didn't know that it replaced with magma though, that really is great.

Where in the raws can I change the vomit material to magma? This will be fun.

even funnier in the mess hall. Which may or may not be located outdoors just to mess with the miners.

I can't count the number of times I've Pulled the Lever to reveal my bridge was a retracting bridge instead of a draw bridge - usually over flat ground...

Just recently, I rushed the beginning of a fort in a hostile environment. Frustrated, I stared at crops dying in their fields as I disabled the labors on everyone except farming and watched in unending frustration as they milled about the fort doing nothing.

Real issue: forgot to set a stockpile for food. .___.

g Settling on top of a lair. Near instant death. A few ghosts later and my dwarves are safe underground, and I'm thinking "oh, I'll just get them some weapons and kill the night troll." Turns out, Fortress Mode night trolls don't like going back inside their lair once they get loose. He's been grinding on every ostrich he sees for months now. Up to legendary Fighter status. I'm afraid to confront him.

It's really easy to get into Coc; trust me, all you need is one taste of Coc and you'll be begging for more! I wasn't even sure I would like Coc until after I got a taste, and now I'm all about Coc!

Y'know, there should really be a better abbreviation for Call of Cthulhu.

When in doubt, long walk of spike traps linked to a lever on repeat with a very deep pit on either side. And lots of marksdwarves (hey, one of the two is bound to make them dodge off.) And more spikes at the bottom. And maybe some soldiers with spears, swords, and axes.

Don’t worry. I know about hot keys but just am too lazy to set any up.

"Alright, Let's hope my dwarves are safe during my bridge test... yep, nobody coming up dead. Bridges went up and down just fine. Looks Like nobody died. Although I'm not sure if I could tell."

A bit more than an ingame week later.

I am currently trying to comprehend what sick, mad, dwarven mind came up with the fortress name "Lancefondled", because it wasn't me.

In other unrelated news, bridge mechanisms are very well lubricated this month.
