Bins
« on: August 20, 2006, 11:25:00 pm »

Is there any way to force dwarves to take items out of a bin? All of my finished goods are in two very-full bins, and I want to be able to trade the goods individually, not just as bulk goods.

EDIT: Nevermind, figured out how to trade items within bins individually.

Yeah, you can trade out of the bins just fine.

_I_ have a bin question. Can you make them out of stone or metal? I can't find an option to do so, just wood.

Per the game manual, bins are made only out of wood because wood is cheap and light.

I guess "cheap" is a relative term, but light is applicable. =)
