Dear Toady One,
Will it be possible in upcoming update to choose material from which the dwarves will make items in shops like Mason or Carpenter? Just to order dwarves - make only marble doors! Not doors from all material types.

I've obviously missed something here. The deadly mists and rains, they are "evil" regions only right? Because Toady's choice of words makes it sound like there's a chance of being slaughtered by your own melting zombie dwarves no matter where you live. :P

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...

is it just me, or does it feel like the world (as a whole, for the entire game) feel like they are getting older, moving forward?

The seed of magic slowly growing, the interactions between cities and civs becoming more complicated, trading happening on a grander scale. it feels like (to me) that the world as a whole is going through the process of history itself, which seems very fitting for a game like this.

obviously this is just because the developement is going from simple to more complex, but i can already feel like there is history behind it, as if all these changes and updates were part of one seamless timeline in a world, going from a world that was barren and simplistic to one that is complicated and interconnected. I can't wait to see where it goes next!

So Toady, will it be possible to mod in mutations that physically change the body of the victim through curses?
If so, we have the possibility of a mutation system!

He's said the mists are only in evil places, but as far as we know nothing keeps the husks from migrating to other regions.

Not yet, no. He said previously (in the context of frankensteinian monsters, but the same things apply) that actual body changes would require a potentially long-ish rewrite of the body system.

But isn't that what we have now with stuff like the were-wolves? I thought the major issue lay in correctly transcribing wounds. Since Shadowscales doesn't seemed concerned with that, we can just do what we currently do and make it go from one complete body to another.

I think Toady has said somewhere before (can't remember where though; devlog maybe?) that mists arise in evil regions exclusively, but can drift outside of them. And he also said above:

Quote from: Toady One
When the mist gets out of its region, it'll drop off quickly.

So hopefully if you embark right next to an evil region but not in one, you'll have a (very?) small chance of still getting fun stuff.

No, werebeasts don't change the body, they get a whole new body for their werebeast form, with no relation to the actual human(oid) body. I suppose you could get a mutation system out of it, having a new creature definition for a third eye, one for a sixth digit, one for a third and and a sixth digit... for each race, but, well....

That said, I forgot one thing that probably counts as body changes as Shadowscales means them, which is changing non-color appearance modifiers (length, etc).

hmm. If transforming as were creatures heal all wounds, that would mean if you got that dwarf with his nerves cut in his arms/legs etc and got him bitten, he could become a soldier again. Though youde have to move them to the were creatures specified burrow or such.

I wonderWill, in future when we can drain animals blood into barrels, get the option for things like werebeasts etc to 'donate' some of their blood so you can safely convert your dwarves to a selected class?
I just imagine having all your warriors be able to turn into ware tigermen or warepolarbearmen or hell, ware giant badgermen in a safe way would be hugely convinient and useful. Along with allowing your dwarves to drink blood to sake their thirst mind.

Huzzah!
Toady answered my question which means that I won't have to worry about metal fb's coming back to life in the evil regions.

These regions also seem to offer great ways of disposing if captured goblins. Let a new era of dwarvern war crimes commence!

Odd, I think I just now realized the possibility of a Breath of Fire dragonclan mod.  Rebuild the weakened light dragon civilisation within an underground city, fight off gongheads and horsemen.  Withstand seiges led by the dark dragon clan and guardians and defeat false gods in the form of megabeasts.

The giant badgers won't know what hit them.
