Do u think there is ever a chance u could get this working with a graphics pack? Say pheobus/Mayday or Ironhand?

If u ever could that would be spectacular ^_^

Yeah, I plan on making a graphics pack for this mod.  Possibly a Stonesense one too if I can figure out how.

PTTG??

You may already be aware of this, but quite a bit of work went into a similar idea before, long, long ago.

It is here.

Cool LP!
But did I hear you complaining about dwarves stopping drinking because of nearby carp?

You should add a megabeast that is a giant pinata! When it dies, it drops numerous candy bits (and bright colored paper refuse)!

Yup, was well aware of the original candyland discussions.

What about candy corn as a crop?
Or cinnamon trees? "|" shaped trees that produce dark red wood instead of brown.
Pop-Rocks for fuel to replace bituminous coal?
Sorry. You probably don't need any help... but I couldn't resist : )
This is going to be one epic mod!

Good luck with the legal matters

I already have candy corn as a crop.  You brew it to make bourbon. ^_^

I was going to add cinnamon trees, but decided it wasn't fantastic enough, so I made cinnamon disks into a crop as well.  The plant only grows in evil biomes, if I recall correctly.

I like your pop rocks idea.  I haven't been able to think of a good fuel.  I may add that in the next version.

Shouldn't candy corn make Corn Syrup? You could also extract high fructose corn syrup from it, making a great additive for all the meals.

My legal stuff is technically over.  It's the reason why I haven't had time to update, but it's over now that I've lost.  I'm in the middle of trying to find a new home and job, so updates will be sporadic at best, but I have Candy Fortress on my flash drive so I can technically work on it at any computer.

I've looked over the changelogs for the last couple of updates, and it looks like Toady's been focusing on fixing bugs and adding more sponsor animals.  Are there any new additions to the game I should keep in mind?

Legal stuff?  What legal stuff?  Expound... Curiosity is piqued...

Also, of course you can use the cadbury bunnies.

I was cashiering and two women came into the store and started whining at me for not arbitrarily lowering prices for them or accepting their empty gift card as payment.  I ended up losing my temper and telling them to eff off and flipping them the bird.  They retaliated by telling the police a story about me shoving a shopping cart into one of them.

The police arrested me for assault and battery without bothering to check the security footage or talk to anyone else who saw what happened.  After a few months of wading through bureaucracy, I got them to look at the evidence that showed I didn't attack anyone, but at that point, the courts insisted on prosecuting me for "disorderly conduct" because I cussed at the two women.  I asked for a jury trial, but my public defender insisted that I had no chance of winning and told me that the judge refused to drop the charges and that I'd get sentenced to jail time for "wasting the court's time" if I didn't take the plea deal.

So, I took the plea deal and got found guilty of a crime because someone didn't like what I said to them and now I have no job and no home.  I'm in the middle of moving to California to be with my relatives now that I'm finally able to leave the state, so I don't have access to my computer at the moment.

Anyways, I'll continue working on the mod as much as I can find time to.

This is not the place for legal advice, Ult1mara.

 Assassinfox, that sucks.
