Wooja look at that...
« on: June 28, 2011, 08:49:30 pm »

I got me a pair o' minotaurs. Do they...you know, breed in captivity?

I believe as long as they're tamable and have the proper child tag (which Minotaurs do), they should be capable of reproduction.  Since they have [CAN_LEARN] and [CAN_SPEAK], they might get married too.

Too bad you cant tame them. Having a minotaur guard would be pretty neat. Maybe when diplomacy is implemented youll be able to strike a deal with your captives and make an entire race your slave.

That reminds me didn't VG cats do a few comic strips on Dwarf fortress? Or was that a different one :P.

And back on topic, I just found my next industry..... Minotaur meat! Yes I can see it now hundreds of pits of hundreds of minotaurs feeding my hungry hungry dwarfs and several nations then opening a gift shop selling overly expensive Minotaur hoofs and horns.... You can butcher them right?

If you can, then not just meat. You've got a whole thriving industry there. (Minotaur leathercrafts, Minotaur bonecrafts, Minotaur meals, Caged Minotaur...)
And a few webcomics have done DF, but I don't think VG cats has yet.

Not VG Cats. Three Panel Soul comes to mind. Loved that DF style there.

My first thought: pipes made from minotaur horns. Most dwarfy way to smoke.

Unfortunateyly Minotaurs are considered intelligent enough that Dwarves refuse to butcher them unless you edit the ethics in the rwas and even then it requires a re-worldgen.
Believe me I tried. The idiots wont even use the skelleton, but will happily use gobbo bones. I thought with sufficient time a skelleton would degrade into bones but it seems I was mistaken as its been 8 years already.

If they are gibbed, shouldn't dwarves be able to butcher the lil' bits and pieces?

No, but bits that don't have non-rotting tissue (i.e. cartilage) will degrade to bone eventually. Or so I've heard.

All you need to do to tame them is add the [PET] tag in their creature raws in creature_standard.txt for your game.  It doesn't require a regen, so you can then tame whatever ones you've captured (as long as they didn't kill someone first.)

While you're adding [PET] just remove [INTELLIGENT] as well so you can farm them. I'm about 80% certain that doesn't require a regen.

Hmm... I bet war Minotaurs with ☼Adamantine war-hammer☼s would be pretty awesome.

Oh yeah, I also caught an Ettin. Just saying. I thought they needed to be knocked unconcious or something to be caught in cage traps, but all these guys just walked into them.
