I'm currently testing this for bugs and side-effects. Creating new data is probably pretty dangerous.

For one, there is a df.global.hist_figure_next_id variable, and you must use that value and properly increment it afterwards. Also, to copy names, you can just do foo.name:assign(bar.name).

Thanks! Making both changes to the original post.

Looks like they also needed to be added to the fortress entity and civilization entity histfig_ids and his_figures lists. Once that is done:

More preliminary testing: they seem to respect labor orders and squads, will put on uniforms and train, and will attack when ordered.

Still failing: they are listed in the nobles screen, but assignments to noble positions don't work yet.

So, since I can't find any clear answer anywhere. Is there currently any way to change the number of embarking dwarf with this?

I don't think so.  There is a script (at hack/lua/plugins/dfusion/embark.lua) that looks like it has the capability, but it is not exposed to the user.

If you're comfortable hacking Lua code, you could probably pull the necessary code out of the CustomEmbark:SetEmbarkParty routine in that file.

or use this: https://github.com/jjyg/dfhack/blob/master/scripts/startdwarf.rb
(paste it into startdwarf.rb in scripts dir)

Hi all. DF freezes my computer every so often (even when I limit the FPS to basically nothing), so I've taken to saving frequently. However, lately it's taken to freezing while I'm in the process of saving, corrupting the save and causing me to lose the game altogether.

To cope with this, I would like to edit DFHack's autosave script to automatically create a backup after the save is complete. Here's the code:
Code: [Select]
-- Makes the game immediately save the state.

if not dfhack.isMapLoaded() then
    qerror("World and map aren't loaded.")
end

local ui_main = df.global.ui.main
local flags4 = df.global.d_init.flags4

local function restore_autobackup()
    if ui_main.autosave_request and dfhack.isMapLoaded() then
        dfhack.timeout(10, 'frames', restore_autobackup)
    else
        flags4.AUTOBACKUP = true
    end
end

-- Request auto-save
ui_main.autosave_request = true

-- And since it will overwrite the backup, disable it temporarily
if flags4.AUTOBACKUP then
    flags4.AUTOBACKUP = false
    restore_autobackup()
end

print 'The game should save the state now.'

I know how to write the backup script in python, so the simplest way to accomplish this would be add in a line of code telling it to run the python interpreter on the .py file after turning autobackup back on. Is this possible? If not, would someone mind explaining the basic steps I would need to go through to make the lua script copy the save folder to a new directory?

I suggest you read this document: https://github.com/peterix/dfhack/blob/master/Lua%20API.rst#material-info-lookup

Thanks!

Final product:
Code: (blooddel.lua) [Select]
local my_entity=df.historical_entity.find(df.global.ui.civ_id)
local sText=" "
local k=0
local v=1

for x,y in pairs(df.global.world.entities.all) do
my_entity=y
k=0
while k < #my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_index do
v=my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_type[k]
sText=dfhack.matinfo.decode(v,my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_index[k])
if (sText==nil) then
--LIQUID barrels
my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_type:erase(k)
my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_index:erase(k)
k=k-1
else
if(sText.material.id=="BLOOD") then
my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_type:erase(k)
my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_index:erase(k)
k=k-1
end
if(sText.material.id=="ICHOR") then
my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_type:erase(k)
my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_index:erase(k)
k=k-1
end
if(sText.material.id=="GOO") then
my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_type:erase(k)
my_entity.resources.misc_mat.extracts.mat_index:erase(k)
k=k-1
end
--VENOM
--POISON
--FLUID
--MILK
--EXTRACT

end
k=k+1
end
end

EDIT: for people who haven't been following my recent posts in this thread, the above script prevents all civilizations in the world from bringing blood, ichor, and "liquid" barrels in caravans. If used before embark (at the screen where you choose your site location), it prevents you from being able to embark with barrels of blood, considerably shortening the extracts list. It also shortens the list that you use to request extracts from the liaison.

I'm really glad that you're here doing the things that you do. This little snag has ground my gears for so long.

I, for one, enjoy adding [EDIBLE_COOKED] to blood and having my dorfs make black pudding.  Of course, YMMV.

I've got a dfhack-internals question for peterix or anyone else who knows.

The sample plugin skeleton.cpp has a comment that dfhack console commands are called from a different thread than the main DF thread.

Is this only true of the console commands?  Or do plugin_* run in a different thread?

I assume that vtable hooks must run in DF's main thread, at least.


(I know, I know, I should write test code and figure it out myself.  DFHack is dauntingly complex, and I'm trying to get a handle on how it all fits together.)

I am working on a script to display information about a unit such as birth day (civ members/pets), max age (currently as an average), body size estimate,  milkable, and grazer info.  I have it respecting assumed identities for the birth/age/name and can display animals with/without "Stray".

However, I am having some trouble figuring out how to determine that a unit is supposed to have "Corpse" in the name.  Black Mamba Man Corpse comes out as Black Mamba Man.  Since the zombie looks very similar to vampires in code I don't know what to base the decision to tack on "corpse" to the name/profession.  I am also curious as to how many other name/profession modifications I might need for units such as necromancers, ghosts, demons, clowns, husks, etc

I would also like to show "missing" units as missing with perhaps the time they were reported missing, but I am uncertain if the game records that date.  If it also recorded a last known location I might want to allow centering on that location.

I am also currently trying to print the basic description provided by the caste definition but am finding it difficult to find the printable width of my lua screen / widget so that I can insert appropriate NEWLINE breaks.  I am probably trying to perform that logic in the wrong place (:init of my framed screen class).  I think I ought to break up the info chunks into their own individual widget labels too.

I am currently calling it more-unit-info.lua and binding it to Alt-I but eventually it might be able to duplicate the "thoughts and preferences" screen so maybe another name would be more appropriate.

The first thing I can think of is that zombies don't have souls.

The example zombies I have in my fort are from the curious structure in the bottom cavern, and a quick peak shows that they do have a current_soul reference

dfhack.TranslateName( unit ) returns ""
dfhack.units.getProfessionName(unit) returns "Black Mamba Man"
game displays "Black Mamba Man Corpse"

*edit

found a reference in unit.enemy.undead on my "Corpse" zombies and not my vampire so I can use that for now.  I may need to make changes once I get examples for the other types of undead (zombies, husks, murked, reanimated, etc)

also found unit.flags1.zombie .  I don't know how I missed that one before, but strangely these "Corpse" are flags1.zombie == false.

on another note:  unit.flags3.unk21 == missing

That zombie flag is obsolete and not used any more. Also, if you mean discovered/not discovered death, it is stored in a completely different object.

How difficult would it be to add an option for the init file for the game and hack windows?  For example - starting the DF window maximised and on top, so that I wouldn't have to shuffle and resize each time but could just get straight into the game. 

I ask because to the pack for newbs in my sig, where an option that makes it clear which window to use first would be rather useful - as part of a general program which includes the LNP gui enabling minimized/maximized launch, the game would fill the screen with soundsense and dfhack minimized.  (utilities can now auto-launch with the latest LNP)

Is this possible?  Not going to happen?  Coming in a specific timeframe?

How do you use it? I've got blooddel.lua in the plugins folder, but I can't tell if it's done anything because I don't have a trade agreement to look at. I've looked at the lua section of the readme, but while I can run the file I can't do anything with it.

I am trying to make chickens lay bees as eggs. So far it only produces a single "Tame Small Creature" when a hen lays bees.
Honestly at the time, I didn't see what could go wrong with crowding 80 military Dwarves into a small room with a necromancer for the purpose of making bacon.
