Custom Non-Military Uniforms
« on: February 19, 2011, 12:53:23 am »

I realised more or less accidentally that hunters, miners and woodcutters use a sort of invisible, uneditable uniform to equip the necessary tools. So, given that it should theoretically be relatively simple to implement, why not make it possible to customise the equipment they're issued with? A player might prefer their woodcutters only use the crude copper axes that are being made in bulk by an apprentice rather than those masterpiece steel ones, for example, or choose to give hunters mail shirts instead of leather armour.

I think Toady's confusing interface better simulates the experience of a bunch of disorganised drunken dwarves running a fort.

I fully support this idea, having my woodchops in decent armor when the goblins come around would certainly save lives. And sometimes migrants come with steel axes for cutting trees. That's usually better then what my army's carrying around in .19

I suggested the same thing here and I agree with you that it's a good idea.

You should die horribly for this. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.

I like this idea.
