Is there ANY way to fix this?
« on: December 10, 2011, 04:22:29 pm »

I need some help making it so that when my dwarves hit warm stone that it wont undesignate it. Is there ANY way to  do this? I know you can remove the warnings, but im trying to build a room above magam to have easy smelting and forging.

Redesignate it so you don't flood yourself with fun.  Otherwise try the o menu.

Sadly there is no way to turn it off. However there are ways you can work around it. It only cancels designations if the stone is unrevealed, so one workaround would be to designate a bunch of down stairways matching the dimensions of the room on the layer above and then dig out the room after the stairs are done.

If you're okay with disabling it permanently (and you're running v0.31.25 Win32 SDL), I can throw together a quick binary patch that'll disable the warning (and undesignation) altogether. I can also do the same for the "damp stone" warning.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.

While that would work it seems like a recipe for unnecessary amounts of fun

It's needlessly complicated and a hazard to cats.

I think you mean gratuitous and intense amounts of fun.

Human mines need water drainage systems regardless of how damp the stone at first feels. Surely a well-planned deepdelve should include precautions against this more dangerous dwarverous liquid.

Personally I channel the room above, and then remove ramps, instead of stairs, but that's just me.

@Funbuns: Dwarves take proper precautions. Nobles go first...

A method I often use is to channel out a smelting pit for all my forges and furnaces. You don't get warm stone cancellations for channeling. Dig your channel two levels above the magma. Remove any ramps you don't want. Channel 1 tile holes for your forges and furnaces. Build your forges and furnaces.

Here's an example: http://mkv25.net/dfma/poi-28445-smeltingpit

I tend to designate a line of tiles at a time, despite it taking extra work on my part.

And I have to admit, I was hoping to be able to summon Necro910 as the solution, but it doesn't quite seem appropriate in this case ...  ???
