Pandas only eat bamboo grass, as far as I know.  Very hard to keep them alive if you don't have it, obviously.

Would you mind if I roll my Dwarven Hive mod into this when the next version of DF comes out?  I'm looking to roll it into a larger mod other than Genesis (not because Genesis is anything less than excellent, mind you - it's just what I've been playing with for a while so I'm looking for variety) and then doing a community fort.

What do you mean 'roll it into'? Do you mean release the combined version as a download or combine it with your mod to be used in a community fort?

Is the readme included with the download? I'm going to start on the art this week.

Yes but it's also in the first post. Just click the spoilers under README.

I noticed that but I didn't want to keep having to go back online to access it.

Expect an update from me sometime in the next few weeks.  :D

You know that bamboo is also a grass, right? Something like "long bamboo" or "aged bamboo" would be better. Of course with a better name.

Its considered to be a grass by some because of the manner in which it grows in the same way that some people categorise a tomato as a fruit even though we treat it as a vegetable so I'm not too sure about the name-change but I will give it somemore thought. Thanks for the suggestion!
I don't mind if it's considered a tree. But two plants with the same name is confusing, that's why I suggested it. I meant that bamboo is also a grass in DF, pandas eat it there.

I'll rename the wood 'long bamboo' for now. Thanks for that.

EDIT: Actually, I'll rename the grasses to be 'bamboo shoots'. That should do the trick.

I also found that in vanilla Dwarf Fortress Toady forgot to remove teeth from sea-nettle jellyfish. I've done that.

A tomato is an angiosperm and thus has 'fruit'. Same with grass and bamboo, which are in the true-grass family and also angiosperms. Bamboo is just tree-like.

Originally, just the second option, but if you were open to it, it might be fun to do the former as well.  Dig Deeper was the first mod I ever played, and I'll probably never make something so large - but adding my hive dwarf races (bug dwarves (playable and hostile) and spider-elves) to Dig Deeper might be an interesting option.

I'll have a look at your mod and see if there's anything there I can use. Feel free to make a community fort. I actively encourage people to do this, in fact I like nothing better (and if you want to mesh the files for it, go right ahead, just be careful, I've changed most of the vanilla folders so if you overwrite anything you could break something)!

I reworked the "Toys" we were talking about before and I remade the figurines as dolls... Eventually I'd like to have one for every single creature and profession (as well) for sentinent races. So far this is what I came up with.

I'm happy to take suggestions for what to focus on modding in next. I've just finished adding in some new woods and I think I'll have a run at more metals and creatures shortly. V0.2 will have over 500 additions but it's not going to be released until it's good and ready. I want to have some time to finetune and beta-test it.

Okay.  Just give me a day or so to get the latest RAW files to you.

I decided I was unhappy with the graphics included in V0.1 so V0.2 has totally updated graphics, a new colour scheme and all those goodies. I didn't make any of the graphics myself I simply meshed them together from various other more talented peoples tilesets and palattes and ensured that they would work with Dig Deeper (if I used your work in some way and you are unhappy contact me and I will take it down). I will get around to writing up acknowledgements as soon as I can for these sorts of things. In lieu of my unhappiness with the graphics I am releasing V0.2 way ahead of schedule choc full of little tweaks as well as the major graphical overhaul. I will get pictures up in the OP soon enough but trust me, it's looking good. Check it out for yourself!

I've always heard good things about Dig Deeper.  I'm busy with a fort now, but I'm posting here so I'll remember to check it out when I'm done.

If there's one thing  I love, it's more depth and realism in games.  I'm not sure if I'll be able to handle this much, but here goes everything.  Downloading, and starting a community fort with it.  This is, I should mention, the first mod I'm playing with DF aside from graphics packs.  I'm excited to see what happens, and hope you'll follow my humble story as well.

I downloaded DDG and while I don't have the time for a community fortress (yet), I am looking forward to digging deeper once more.

Just a small question: I see you haven't added new weapons or armour. Is that still on the to-do list or are you happy with the weapons that vanilla DF has?
