Note to Self: GDS can use Crossbows
« on: March 12, 2011, 10:15:26 am »

There I am, happily wandering along with with my squad, killing bandits in the savage desert.
I kill a crossbowman and leave him lying there.
Next thing I know, a Giant Desert Scorpion wanders in, grabs the effing crossbow, and shoots me through the head. Game over. o_O

I think it's the way towns develop now. In the beginning, people move into a town. Then they start producing tables, which results in more and more tables. Soon tables represent a significant portion of the population, they start lobbying for new laws and regulations, putting people to greater and greater disadvantage...

It's well known for GDSs to beat people to death with objects - UPPERBODY_PINCERS has the GRASP tag - but firing a weapon is new. It'd guess that the game doesn't check for EQUIPS for ranged attacks. If that's the case, it's a bug and should be reported.

Hmm, reading the log shows it actually ripped it out of the hand of one of my followers, and beat him to death with it. Then shot me. :O

Well well well... and me who embarked in a savage rocky wasteland...

I'm going to tame and breed GDS, then put them in my fortifications next to a crossbow/ammo pile :P No need for GDS-riding marksdwarves !

I have no idea. I think he had bolts in one hand and the crossbow in the other. All I know is, a bolt flew from him and killed me. And it says he wrenched stuff out of my companions hands... and... yeah.

Well I didn't take a screen of it, I can find the log info if you want


EDIT: In the logs, it shows...


The Crossbowman loses hold of the copper crossbow.

Then after a sting to the face...

The Crossbowman loses hold of the silver bolts [21].

Then a brief period of scrabbling, then...

The flying sliver bolt strikes you in the head, tearing the muscle, fracturing the skull and tearing the brain!
You have been knocked unconscious!
You have been shot and killed.

Just did the same thing, and it's awesome. Indeed, GDS can fire crossbows, parry blows, stab you with bolts, smash you with crossbows...

Visibly however, they cannot parry bolts even with 2 shields equipped.

The GDS is obviously already suited for adventuring, even without modifications to its racial files. DF has the greatest bugs.

This thread sums up DF in a nutshell, think I also found a new quote.
