Possible bug with this. I was only getting stragglers for a few seasons (despite having considerable value and 40,50,60+ dwarves) then one season I get nagas, then a few moments later elephants then a few moments later frost giants  :o all at once.

Also its important to note that invasions seem to always happen right before a trader comes by.

Thanks for the mod, its bloody FUN! in more ways than one. i got my 1st set of stranglers siege on the 1st year, when i had only 10 dwarfs around and none metal industry anywhere. the pick/axe recruits made short work of 10 or so of them. now im on 2nd year and i get both stranglers and war blendecs on the same time. now i had a half squad of steel mail dwarfs ready, stranglers went down fast but then the 20x war blendecs bowman with the hail of bronze bolts killed the whole squad. at the end i lost 30 dwarfs before the blendecs decided to leave... maybe the breastplates would be better than mail vs these lads. Maybe a squad of crossbowdwarfs could do something to prevent further massacre. Ok time to go and try to survive the incoming tantrum FUN! (and hope for a good migrant wave for a new military)

edit: got 12 migrants next season, drafted into military and got a mounted war elephant (...dude!) / mounted war blendec siege next season. it didnt end happily. my dwarfs got 2 elephants tho, seems the macedwarfs made them bleed before they were ripped to pieces. then the blendecs invaded the fort. They had a hard time killing the injured from last siege, who was still sleeping with his superior quality steel armor in hospital, he didnt wake up (my new military could have used that gear tho, oh well.)

I've been considering how to improve the mod. Although skilled, steel-wearing dwarves can handle npc giants and elephants, I'm finding it harder than expected to produce the necessary dwarves in time as training/military are much harder to manipulate in 31 than 40d. I might remove giants and minotaurs and instead introduce two lesser civs between the 2nd and 3rd tiers.

I'm also finding that the casualty rate on arrows might be too high if the mod throws many enemies at you over a short period of time, given that the numbers available to the fort are much lower than those available to the computer. I'm considering removing arrows on the lower tier civs for that reason.

So to sum up, I'm going to remove giants and minotaurs, perhaps decrease the attack power of elephants, and remove bows from the earlier civs. I would like to get feedback on these proposed changes.

Also, I don't think there is a way to prevent random civs from riding stuff. Alas for the new mechanics of DF 2010!

I'm gonna try this out with genesis mod.
I'll see if I can handle these giants once I get there.

Do you need help to make them compatible, or does Darkfragrance's mod edit no vanilla files? If so, I want to test it too :). Let me release 3.0 now and I will try to play with these civs :). P.S. I hope werewolves do not conflict with my werewolves though. I have weres with different castes (whitemane, gray, bloody, dread) so they could cause conflicts.

I don't think it interferes, I started up a game and it's working.

They should not interfere, because the names I gave the additional creature and entity files are almost guaranteed to be unique (such as WEREWOLFFD, GIANTFD, etc.). The mod was made with compatibility in mind.

However, the Fortress Defense mod does require vanilla weapons, armor, clothes, and so on.

I'm loving the mod Thanks for the great work!  Fiqured a way to cage those trap-avoid buggers but those flying furies are going to cause a problem.

Again Many Thanks!  :D

Freaking love the mod. I found an odd little bug, though. Rather than capturing children, Minotaurus thieves just bludgeon the little buggers with their bags. Pic is coming.

If I could find your address I would mail you a cookie, this is the closest I've come to breaking the no external mods rule(as in I only use my own)... Dang, I think I've broken it already.
seriously this is amazing for any mod.
good job darkflagrance, I shall download it for the monsters and stay for the seiges.

I am not sure if this is intended behaviour, but I just killed a Strangler siege (with 3 axe men, 2 with wooden axes!) and am now butchering the corpses.  I like it a lot, but I am not sure if it is supposed to be that way!

Anyway, great mod so far!

I've been searching for a mod like this, like a followup to 40d relentless assault!

This looks cool thanks I'll check it out ;)

I just had a fortress utterly obliterated by Giants - blood, vomit and dwarf corpses lined the halls - and immediately started another one because, dang, it was just too enjoyable to have enemies who were real threats. I'm currently tangling with the Stranglers and expecting Frogmen soon, and I have to say that this is an incredibly fun (and indeed Fun) mod, and exactly what I was looking for. The goblins were always too infrequent, and ineffective when they did come, and this massively improves on that. Thank you! :D
