anyway: a suggestion for those who start in an area with very little to no wood. why do you not make sleeping bag/bedroll(yes, YOU choose the name)? you could mod it to be made from 2 cloth. ANY cloth. (by that i mean star spider silk, since it is the only thing that is omnipresent source of cloth)

I can't mod furniture. Otherwise beds would take cloth to begin with.
then why don't you make a NEW piece of funiture? or is that something that can't be done? just asking, since i suck at modding.
I'm pretty sure beds are hard-coded to be sleepable.

Wow, I had no idea that non-safe stone would be such a game-changer.  I had a healthy fortress of 40ish, and an invasion of one squad of mixed Lumbering and Scrawn Infecteds destroyed me.  And I only killed about half of them, most of those being from the warlord caravan that was in.  So, the question is, how do you make a defensible entrance without stone?

Get Wood!

I tend to have to completely deforest the local area to create my mini-fort. I know you can take away lethal stone by replacing the raws but...I just can't...so...much...humour...

I just hole up and use hunting rifles. Going toe to toe with the walking dead seems to be suicide for my humans, despite having decent armour and weapons. (Quite realistic I imagine  :D)

I use Ice.

about the fuel rods, you wouldn't give the reaction to the player, it would be a weapon imported by war. I don't think attackers bring wood or bone ammo.

another item idea. Headscarf or veil. Theives clothing item. this way there will be more items to have but not full sets of clothing. I get what your going for. The characters arn't naked, the standard clothing items are simply a given, everyone has them so they arn't represented. But then you can still have a handful of non-standard clothing items.

Vail/Headscarf: Theives
Poncho: Warlords
Gardeners Gloves: Enlightened
Ratty T-shirt: Zombies
Tattered Pants: Evasive infected

This way you wont have 40 full sets of clothing but there is still something gained from the encounter.

So let me get this straight:

Theives are Muslims.
Warlords are mexican druglords.
Enlightened are plant lovers (Makes sense)
Zombies are zombies
Zombies are zombies.

Makes sense, actually, but kinda kills the feel.

Headscarves aren't only worn by Muslims, many peoples who live out in the elements, typically desert environments, adapted some form of head scarf to block particles driven by high winds and to protect as much skin as possible from the sun. Ponchos are used for pretty much the same reason, thats why spaghetti westerns use them so much it shows that the main character is tough. I couldnt think of one for the player race, and I'm not entierly convinced their isn't a better idea for the warlords.

Also I have noticed a total lack of gloves in the game, so maybe fingerless gloves for the player race? (name of race) Uniform for the Nazis? I was also thinking may eyepatch for the warlords. but then most all warlords would appear to have little to no depth perception.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I was good and wooded up.  With walls and stuff.  But the only way for me to get caravans was to leave an opening in my wall, and I never got it closed in time when an ambush or invasion showed up...

I also have the problem of not having enough stuff to trade.  Normally, I just make dozens of bins of stonecrafts.  But now that I can't, I make a couple of wood, because it's usually at a premium, and then butcher animals.  In this game, I almost had cotton production up and running, but then I got owned.

In any case, I'm trying different stuff out for the succession game, and hoping beyond hope that I can find an embark that has both lots of wood AND will let me grow useful crops.  Because forests have awful ones.

i for one get the most ore i can, make that into mechanisms and then make cage traps, so that the infected are busy while the caravan happily enters and the doors are sealed. it also helps if you channel out a 3 tile (maybe less) path to the doors, and post your riflemen to help stall the zed-heads additionally.

heres the layout.
ground Z-level:    (++)-bridge, +++-road (put those cage traps on it!), =0- wall with a pillar, - Z channel drop, _-tile (ground
=0(++)0=
_-(++)-_
_-+++-_
_-+++-_
_-+++-_
_-+++-_
_-+++-_

1 Z-level up: []-fortifications (i make my fortress out of clay. hey, it's carveable!) +-floor (for the soldiers)
+++
[][]
----

1 Z-level down: ~-ground, - undug ground (prefferably soil), 0-walled off entrance (for the miners to remove the ramps)
~~~~~0
~-----~
~-----~
~-----~
~-----~
~-----~

clear?

of course if you can't build this in time, you can let one enlightened caravan  have an "accident" *wink, wink*

plus, embark with 3 stones and 2-3 blocks, for a bridge and mechanisms.

edit: make that 4, so that you can make a kiln for clay collection.

I finally survived an undead invasion. By wallingin 10 out of my 18 survivors in my shack, which contains all stockpiles, a farm, several workshops, a dining room, and a dorm. The undead are chasing the est of my populace around the map.

So I just started playing this game and I accidentally nuked the moon.

it is really fun! just like me, my miners with rotten hearts could not even finish the primitive burrows for my people to live in, when the undead came. and then there were none. and a whole lot of blood too.
