When I selected my entire fort for smoothing...

...and wondered why three months later my farms had stopped producing...

...turns out you can't grow food on smooth stone. Rather, you CAN, but as soon as it gets muddy some industrious dwarf will run on over and clean it up (with no tools, I can only assume he's eating it).

The only time they seem to be efficient cleaners, too.
Build a floor over the smoothed floor, remove said floor, and you should get the soil layer back.

Note that he said mud. He muddied some stone. Meaning that he will have to re-irrigate, because the constructions will divert it back to 'un-smoothed ________ floor'

I picked up the stone and carved my name into the wind.

Which will still work.  He just needs to re-muddy it.

You see, booze is a parasite. It lives off dwarves and compels them to dig into the ground so as to create massive defences to protect it's self. It really shouldn't be called dwarf fortress, Booze fortress would make much more sense.

Grates fix everything.

Well, not everything. Just dwarves getting stuck in high places. Still, though, they beat building a floor.

I hate that building, I swear you have to go up to about the 5th floor to reach the third. Apparently there's an entire corridor of offices up there somewhere that were locked up in the 80s and forgotten about.


Incidentally, what subject do you do (I'm nanotechnology honours)?




On topic, the time I connected my 10 z level self powered pumping array, and realised (as my fort started to overflow) I'd neglected an off switch, and the necessary assemblies were now 3 z levels under water.

Finding out just what those items in purple are on the trade screen.

Figuring out why I was losing masterpiece wood items when all my stockpiles were next to a magma pool.

Combating giant bats by stationing champion wrestlers adjacent to the chasm.

Using ramps to dig out a frozen aquifer.

you can built constructions more than one tile at a time.

What?  HOW?  o_o

When building walls and floors and the like, use uhkm to change dimensions.

You gotta be kidding me!

Dammit!

People burning, booze exploding, the fort is on fire, the countryside has turned to ash.  Its business as usual.
