More weirdness: although my dwarves built their forge, smelter and wood furnace, and made their coke, and made one copper axe and four copper picks, not a single dwarf is digging any designated square, or chopping any designated tree.  FPS is currently at 12.

I've even set a tile to be channeled directly in front of the wagon, and no-one is moving to do it. :-/

I'll see if I can find where in the world it is.  I remember that I searched for a 3x3 area, no aquifer, high evil, medium savagery, flux stone, and medium temperature.  I didn't take the area that it gave me... I moved around and found one with sand that was nearby.  Embarked there, and this is what I got.

Edit: they've yet to pick up their tools. :-/  just standing around.  They dismantled the workshops like I asked, though.  weird.

Was it near an evil ocean? Because if it was, I have the same world. Now just a matter of finding this gift from the gods of large serrated discs and towers.

I wasn't near an evil ocean, no.  And the mason just went to make a bauxite wall (as I asked), yet still no designations are being completed.

Update: the save file for this region is 44 MB. :-/

I just got the recent version of DF and am running worldgen right now.

Any more hints as to the info?

One way to find out easy is backup the save, abandon, and reclaim. You should easily locate the area.

EDIT:
Worldgen completed.

EDIT EDIT:
Found and embarked and...





...Nothing. ???

Okay, odd. I think you got an amazing feature out of nowhere, and Armok has blessed your game. I have nothing going on. No adamantine spire. And nice and speedy too.

I just realized I was using 31.08. That may be why I'm getting something different. I'll try downloading 31.10 tomorrow if my internet connection will let me.

Do you think you could hurl an initial save onto the DFFD?

Also, do you have DFHack? If so, how much adamantine does DF Prospector say is on the map? It has to be 50k+. Maybe it even hits six digits, though I doubt it.

Not a troll, not some basement-dwelling neckbeard, but indeed a hateful, rude little person. On the internet.
I'm actually quite nice IRL, but you people have to pay the price for that.

Now stop being distracted by the rudeness, quit your accusations of trollery, and start arguing like real men!

I'm also wondering where to find this. Really would like a game in that kind of environment.

Updated the OP with a graphic showing the embark location.

Place a single dwarf statue atop the spire but leave it otherwise untouched.

Alternately, try to plunge the Finger of Armok into the very heart of Hell.

I'm going to attempt to gen it just to build a tower. A tower that I release prisoners off of.

Oh wow I do have that world. Just different alignments. I was looking through those Good plains north of the central evil ocean, which were Evil on mine.

It seems to have swapped the evilness of these two plains. This is a Go(o)d plains area on mine. Hmmm... (theorizes on worldgen differences between Windows 31.08 and Linux 31.10).

EDIT:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

It didn't give me the adamantine. Again, do you think you could put an initial save up on the DFFD?

Same exact location, same terrain, with the exception of the tower. I couldn't duplicate that, even though I tried about four times.

Edit: It appears to be giving me slightly different climate conditions from yours. For example, the area I'm in contains no green grass, and there's much less water.

I got the same thing.

Either it's a bona fide glitch, or Toady loves Linux users.
