Would it work to set different constraints for each job? If I remember correctly, I've done something like this before:

If coke below 100, burn wood.
If coke below 1000, use bit coal / lignite.

Do you have an example of that configuration? It seems I can only specify output material, not Input material. Do I need to use the job-material utility for that?

Thanks for the reply, but I'm affraid that won't work considering charcoal and coke are made at different workshops. Wood Burner and Smelter respectively. If it were the same shop I'd think your suggestion would work.

Whoops, I spaced out on that!  I'm using the gui add-on for Workflow atm.  I'm trying to figure out a set of constraints for PeridexisErrant's suggestion, but not having much luck so far.

*Edit* Not sure how to do separate constraints for coke from bit/lig and charcoal from coal.  Both are listed as coal.  Hmmm... there might be a way by using the foreign vs. locally made tags.  Since the bit/lignite is brought in through trade, I wonder if the foreign tag carries through to the final product?  I don't think so, but I'm not 100% sure.

Apologies - I just went and checked my old fort, and it wasn't working the way I thought for coke (which explains where my logs kept disappearing to).  The similar trick is to set high thresholds for green glass, and lower for stone (eg pots); that way if the glass furnaces are bottlenecked for some reason the fort doesn't grind to a halt and tantrum. 

You might be able to stick something together with the Stockflow plugin, I guess.

I keep getting these errors in the tty console:
Code: [Select]
/usr/local/src/LFR/hack/scripts/itemsyndrome.lua:32: attempt to index local 'material' (a nil value)
stack traceback:
/usr/local/src/LFR/hack/scripts/itemsyndrome.lua:32: in function 'getMaterial'
/usr/local/src/LFR/hack/scripts/itemsyndrome.lua:269: in function 'checkAndAddSyndrome'
/usr/local/src/LFR/hack/scripts/itemsyndrome.lua:304: in function </usr/local/src/LFR/hack/scripts/itemsyndrome.lua:303>
This is with LFR 0.21a ASCII Edition and self-compiled DFHack from git, as described earlier in this thread.  The errors don't appear to cause the game to crash or misbehave (at least not in any obvious way), and they only appear once in a while, at times that don't follow any pattern I can see.

Recently, the breeding from egg-laying invader mounts thread caught my attention. It talked about the obstacles involved, with the main one being:

Invader mounts can be trained/tamed once, and only once, after which they disappear off your animal list. They will revert to wild status eventually and can't be retrained, but gain all the benefits of having been part of your fort: loyalty cascade if you kill them with soldiers and immunity to traps (not to lever or otherwise triggered upright spikes though), plus they remain an enemy iirc so instead of running away and hopefully off the map, they'll attack your dorfs.

Questions:
Shouldn't it be possible to use a DFHack script to at least change the hostility of said invader mounts, if not make them a permanent part of your fort?

What about the old "Toggle hostile" script from DFusion?

I did a search in the dfusion folder from the lastest (r3) release, but I could not find a script containing the name "hostile". Also, I can't find a mention of such a script in the DFHack readme.

Was "Toggle hostile" not ported over? Is DFHack still missing a lot of DFusion scripts? For that matter, would it even work in Fort mode? (Originally for Adventure mode.) Would it work on a hostile invader mount?

Yes to all of that, right now.

Making enemies allies is not difficult at all. You just need to muck around with their entity links and allegiances.

Interesting. Though, I had assumed Toggle Hostile would not work properly for this purpose without a lot of changes.

Simple, perhaps, for those familiar with the inner workings of DF and DFHack.

I take it, then, there are not any scripts already written to do this? Perhaps something similar that I could study and apply to a different use? Or maybe some documentation? I could not find a mention of "entity links" or "allegiences" in the Readme. (Though, I also understand that the Readme desperately needs updating. Over a year old?)

The main source of "knowledge" about dfhack is not any readme, and will never be a readme. It can only tell you about the fixed part of dfhack i.e. the part we wrote, the part that has the infrastructure, the usage details of plugins etc... We can't (or at least i won't) write a guide/readme about the part thats from DF. The part that holds e.g. entity membership. The main reasons are: it will probably change with next df version, there is a ton of it, nobody (except Toady One) knows what does what exactly. Other than that the fastest way is either to dig through df-structures , join our irc channel and ask around, try using gui/gm-editor to get the feel for structures and inner working of df, analyze the other plugins and scripts. The best example is creature creation script. It was not made for so long because nobody knew how it works and some fields were unknown. After some playing around (and df crashing) we have a working creature spawning script. Though it still is missing a lot of details and customization (e.g. memberships, history, starting afflictions, event birth date(age), inventory, maybe appearance customization, beliefs and family relations and so on) my idea was to spawn a creature and then modify it to your liking.

mmm I've got something that makes a unit an ally in adventure mode; it shouldn't be too difficult to edit it for fort mode.

Code: [Select]
local args={...}

local unit = args[1] and df.unit.find(args[1]) or dfhack.gui.getSelectedUnit()

local unitnem = dfhack.units.getNemesis(unit)

local unitfig = df.historical_figure.find(unit.hist_figure_id)

local adv = df.global.world.units.active[0]

local advnem = dfhack.units.getNemesis(adv)

unit.relations.group_leader_id=adv.id

if unitnem then
unitnem.group_leader_id=advnem.id
end
if advnem and unitnem then
advnem.companions:insert('#',unitnem.id)
end

if unitfig then
for i=1,#unitfig.entity_links do
unitfig.entity_links:erase(0)
end
end
unit.civ_id=(df.global.world.units.active[0].civ_id)

Understood. I knew there wasn't a comprehensive guide or anything. But I had no idea where to start.

:) Thank you for the tips.

Oh, thanks! That looks like a good starting point.

What's COMBATHARDNESS called for the purposes of DFHack scripts? Specifically, I'd like it to be able to examine how 'tragic' an individual effect is.

In Lua, you should be able to use "df.misc_trait_type.Hardened".

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.

How do I use it? I've been using the getbloodcount script as a base and replacing unit.body.blood_count with whatever will make it give out the number I'm after, but it either gives me various errors or returns the number 15. I tried running that one on two dwarves with different descriptions of their combat hardiness, and should have gotten two different numbers.

The original getbloodcount script:

You should be using df.unit.find(num) there, not df.global.world.units.all[num].

Also, for combathardness you want dfhack.units.getMiscTrait(unit,df.misc_trait_type.Hardened,true)

The true is optional (it creates the misc trait if the creature doesn't have one) but I don't think it'll hurt anything.
