Toady please, before you start fully on adventure mode, throw in a quick fix to the soldiers equipping only 1 boot or 1 glove and leaving the other limb unprotected, usually happens when they upgrade their shit. It's gotten so many dwarves killed in combat it's not even funny, and I bet it could be fixed pretty easily.

I got this earlier today, my adamantine cans dwarves were wearing one gauntlet only. One sorry can dwarf got his shield hand cut off by goblins, then got stabbed in the throat because he couldn't block the spear, because he lost his shield. He died shortly after.

While you're at it, would it be possible to make dwarves wear their claimed clothes again?  Having civilians who aren't wearing any shoes in spite of owning them (and soldiers lacking footwear on one foot) step in forgotten beast *something-or-other* and get poisoned has killed far too many of my forts.  And since it isn't something that can currently be avoided (especially with the current infinitely-expanding blood bug) except by keeping titans completely away from the fort...  I'd really appreciate that fix.  Please?

Regarding posting bug reports in this thread: if they're on the bug tracker and well-tagged, Toady will get to it when he gets to it. You don't see me complaining about liquid glob breath attacks coming out solid.

Point taken.  My apologies.

Yes, that is exactly what I mean, it's not a "fun" bug, it's a military-crippling bug that should go in .15 (new devlog says toady started on some bugfixes) so PLEASE let this fix be one of them!

but I was under the impression that this thread was for talking of anything related to future versions :<

As long as it's discussion, then talking about bugs is fine. However, if you want the issue to be addressed by Toady, it's best to take it to the bug tracker. Greentexting it just further slows the Q&A process.

Toady, your awesome, and you've created a wonderful game. Someday, when I have money and am not borderline homeless because my physics and astrophysics degrees were as useless as an English degree, I will give you lots.

I can relate to that. Toady deserves my money, but I don't have any. ;_;

Are invasion forces now drawn from the invading nation's entity populations, or are they still spawned ex nihilo? Assuming the later, how soon is this expected to be rectified?

There's a 'YES' backwards in the video url and it's another reason to laugh at this.

WOOHOO! such a little thing. Such a big difference in gameplay.

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.

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.)
