Baron! Baron! Dwarves want baron fixed!

There is a workaround for the baron (which is not to say it shouldn't be bug-fixed by Toady, but still, if you want one, you can do it).

When you've met the wealth and export criteria and a dwarven caravan/liaison show up, prevent your leader from meeting with the liaison until the caravan has left the map entirely.  (Draft the mayor into the military, or lock him in a room far from the liaison, or lock the liaison into a room far from the mayor, or all of the above.)  Once the last merchant has left the map (one of the guards might stay behind and become a "Friendly" instead of a "Merchant", but it still works), then you can allow the liaison and the mayor to meet.  The liaison will let you become a barony and appoint a baron(ess).

This still won't enable any other nobles to show up though, like the Tax Collector, or

And annoying soap/washing spam too.

Workaround: make sure all soap is stored in the hospital coffers.  Any soap that's not in the hospital should be forbidden.

And probably some other stuff I cannot think of right now. 8)

Inability to use crutches (leg-loss dwarves are permanent invalids).

Inability to use plaster correctly.

Planted underground crops disappearing just after season change.

No elven/human diplomats.

No wagons in caravans.

I've probably forgotten something important, but those are the major ones for me personally, that I can think of right now.

Yeah, I know. I've read about it somewhere else, right after caravan and liason arrived. Well, I guess I'll try it next game year.

Carthage must be destroyed.
Bugs must be destroyed. Implementing new features without fixing known bugs and issues is wrong.

Any word on getting bone and shell into a separate pile all on their own without the miscellaneous stuff in there? (This bug: http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=95 )

The change away from specific item types made this more annoying to set up, but I'll get to it.

Woo! Thanks!
