Now that 31.x has been out awhile, what should we call this new version level?

I ask, because 2010 is coming to an end, and the wiki still refers to DF2010 as the current version as a placeholder until such time as Toady decides on a name for the current version.

(Personally, I prefer and use DF31, and prepending DF to the older 28a and 40d, but I can understand the confusion that would come from random numbers. Not that one more bit of uncommon confusion would kill the average DF player.)

It may be a minor thing but I share your query. Maybe just 31.x like most people call it?

Why not call it DF2010? That was the date of the first 31 release, after all.

Toady typically doesn't do things by half measures.  As evidenced by turning "make hauling work better" into "implement mine carts with physics".
There are many issues with this statement.

Roight, a question from me. I know you've said it will be possible to both build Adventure Mode sites, and raid sites in Dwarf Mode. So... Will it be possible, in the future, to raid Adventurer created sites in Dwarf Mode? Cause that would be friggin amazing.

 Considering that adventurer sites will be treated like other sites, the raids will be targetting any site on the list, and that this is Dwarf Fortress; why wouldn't you be able to?

Imagine a cool peice of sky-blue and milk-white marble about 3cm by 2cm and by 0.5cm, containing a tiny 2mm malacolite crystal. Now imagine the miles of metamorphic rock it's embedded in that no pick or chisel will ever touch. Then, imagine that those miles will melt back into their mantle long before any telescope even refracts an image of their planet. The watchers will be so excited to have that image too.

That is a very interesting possibility. Since you can retire adventures, and we might have direct control over site raids, we'd get to see what happens when you take a superhuman, trained up adventurer against the dwarven army. The results, I expect, would be terrifying.

I just noticed that curses_800x600.png is back to regular size, with 10x12 tiles instead of 10x24. Yay.

Of course, this appears to be causing trouble in the release thread.  Not sure what's up yet, or if I can fix it myself.

I have noticed that in .15 and .16 underground sieges have stopped.  In my current fortress I have modded in several underground races with the ability to send ambush parties and sieges.  In .13 and .14 aboveground sieges were broken, but the underground attackers would appear regularly.  In the latest release they seem to not appear anymore.  I suspect the changes to make goblin sieges again broke the underground sieges.  I also suspect that this is not an issue for most people since there are no underground sieging races in vanilla DF.

I've also noticed when I gen worlds now that I see a lot of thousand year long wars, that start early in world history and then never end.  This is probably a result of the way entity populations are handled now.

Can you remove the below ground condition on items designated to dump?
People should be able to responsibly dump and undump items, even above ground, which is currently not working.


Edit: Problem solved.

Go to your (o)rders screen and enable outdoor refuse collection.
