[0.31.01] caves dry up in reclaim mode
« on: April 04, 2010, 05:31:57 am »

well the thread title says it all. i tried to reclaim a fortress and found that all the mud in the revealed caves is gone. I'm not sure if this happens to unrevealed caves too.

I have this bug now.  It is the HORROR

I was hoping to get back all the nice farmland for the underground caves. but it is all gone.  The mudpiles in the caves are gone !!!

reclaim in broken.  Must save mudd for, or remudd the caverns at reclaim in order to make reclaim  any fun.

This must also be a problem in adventure mode, even thow I have not tryed it.

I have a thread about this in the questions thread... an IMMENSE cave system, a true Dwarf Utopia 50 z-levels under an Ice glacial, and its ALLLLL "clean"

There needs to be an exception for mud on Relcaim.

Yuppers, this needs to be fixed. Reclaiming is now mostly worthless since your fortress has farming, woodcutting, and likely even fuel production set back months, or even years.

Unknown to most but the insane and the mystics, Tarran is actually Earth itself, as Earth is sentient like that planet in Avatar. Originally Earth used names such as Terra on the internet, but to protect it's identity it changed letters, now becoming the Tarran you know today.
Quote from: Ze Spy
Tarran has the "Tarran Bug", a bug which causes the affected character to repeatedly hit teammates while dual-wielding instead of whatever the hell he is shooting at.

Wood is the big one...

I can build a pump and flood an area big enough for farms and food... but wood...
Im on a Glaciar right now and all the caves are stone, Im basically screwed as far as wood goes, Unless I can find an undiscovered amount of water enough to flood the caves.

EDIT: By the by, I wanted to add something just for anyone nitpicking about "Is it a bug or is it a feature?"
Traditionally 'bugs' are things that can make a game unplayable, and as of now, having the caves dry out makes wood growth impossible and farming incredibly hard.
