Stockpile for bones and shells
« on: April 27, 2010, 11:28:52 am »

In 40d it was possible to create a stockpile which only accepted bones, skulls and shells.  In the new version I cannot find bones, skulls or shells on the items allowed list for the refuse stockpile, and I can't see any on other types of pile either.  I can select body parts by creature type but not by body-part type.  Is there a way to do this, that I haven't noticed?

"Body Parts" includes bones, skulls and shells - plus other craftable things like hooves. Just activate it all, I've yet to get unwanted (uncraftable) stuff in that stockpile.

Congrats, Psieye. This is the first time I've seen a derailed thread get put back on the rails.

Hair and cartilage will go there too, which you can't use, but you can change the (o)rders so those are dumped automatically.

If it's not already in the suggestions it should be: Thread from hair.

I haven't checked since I'm not doing bugs until after the release (well, I'm doing bugs, in the additive sense).

That sounds like it'd be easy to mod with a custom reaction.

For shells make a stockpile that only accepts body parts from turtles and cave lobsters.

Hmmm....

Would you be able to say, make rope from these hair threads?

....and would you be able to, say...

...rope together a couple of sea turtles using them as restraints?
