Nightmares shouldn't melt in normal temperatures. However, what they should do is instantly get set on fire and then burn to death.

Maybe I should have made their flesh more resistant to fire other than FIREIMMUNE...

Edit: Well, nightmares are immune to magma, and are homeotherm to normal temperatures, so I don't know what is wrong.

@Bloax and Naryar:

Nightmares... I think they have the standardized, non-fireproof materials as well.
It uses standard_materials and standard_tissues. Both redirect to my fake creature for standardized materials. These are NOT fireproof. Thats the cause. Nothing is wrong with your nightmare naryar, its just that they dont work in this mod. At least not without me modding them slightly.

Well they don't die per-say, but they only stop bleeding after getting down to the lowest blood level, which makes them really suspensible to bleeding out from the smallest of scratches.

@arclance: I dont know... I always rush out and melee everything that enters the map. If you let the orcs sit there for a year, you get no migrants/caravans, thats your fault and your problem. The manual even states:
Quote
A special tactic of the orcs is besieging your fort. The orc army will start campfires and wait you out for a few months, hoping to catch a caravan of guard, and starve you of outside resources.
Its better then just making them stronger goblins, which is boring. ^^ At least orcs wont run into your goblin grinders.
My problem is with the "wait you out for a few months" which is inaccurate, they really stay there for more like a year.
I did keep playing that game and they did eventually leave after a year.

I usually melee everything as well but not with a small, barely trained, partially armored military against a mostly ranged offensive force.
I don't like replacing most of my military due to using suicide tactics like that, they take to long to train.

Ok arclance, point taken. And I am surprised no one ever seems to use the bonfire. If the orcs just sit there, make a bonfire and light the grass. Sooner or later the orcs will move. ;)

Hint: Random patches of spike traps in the wilderness hooked up to levers sends a very, very good "Get the hell off my territory" message.

Please do leave SIEGE tag on Dwarves and Humans though, I like that Tiaga Orcs have to fight their way out (or ballistae, tramcart weapons, archer towers, whatever).

The INORGANIC:NONE weather wasn't my invention, that's coming from your side somewhere.  It never did rain magma though, just rock snow all year round.

i figured the SIEGE tag was what siege engines were for =)

@meph - i'm still trying to figure out the best way to get standard backgrounds onto the variegated-black-background ones! i'm honestly not that good with photoshop, although i can usually figure things out...

Cunning trap system ?
That would require prior setup.
The local mostly giant wildlife makes that hard with the current size of my military because civilians are cowards.
I could have caved-in the area underneath them but they were standing on my brook.

Hint: Random patches of spike traps in the wilderness hooked up to levers sends a very, very good "Get the hell off my territory" message.
That would work but also blocks wagon passage at the spacing the would be necessary for good Orc coverage.

Ok arclance, point taken. And I am surprised no one ever seems to use the bonfire. If the orcs just sit there, make a bonfire and light the grass. Sooner or later the orcs will move. ;)
I guess I could have done that but I did not want to totally abandon the surface and it kills your FPS.
I still need to "Giant Bat Riding Bow-Goblin" proof my greenhouse so I need surface access.

Masterwork Dwarf Fortress V.2f

NOTES: HARDER MINING IS REALLY HARD NOW. Yes, I am yelling this in the hope that people take heed. Your miners can essentially be ambushed now, by weak elemtental-wraiths living in the rock, by balrogs (rare) and soggoths (rare). This means you should bring warbeasts and military while mining. I know that many people will turn this off, because it does make the game harder and is unusual. Feedback about this feature is most welcome. Since undigable rock and the coal-dust and warpstone were not quite successful in making harder mining interesting, I hope this try does better. ;)

This update is small, mostly concerned with bugfixes, graphics and kobolds.

Graphics:
  • Font finally has all missing symbols, like weight/forbidden/exceptional symbols.
  • 4 new tilesets. CLA, Taffer, Soviet and a second JollyBastion variant.
  • 18 color schemes. Cycle through them in the GUI.
Spoiler: Tilesets (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Color Schemes (click to show/hide)

Bugfixes:
  • Fixed steel mechanism reaction in Gunsmith
  • Fixed magma armory blueprint copying
  • Fixed melting hellfire imps (fortress defense)
  • Fixed badgerman bodysize (fortress defense)
  • Fixed all possible error combinations from adding one FD race, but not another (entities were sharing items they shouldnt have)
  • Fixed Ascii and Ascii+ plant_standard.txt (was not updated)
  • Fixed error-popup from Grazer button (tropicl.txt missing)
  • Fixed some graphics background colors (drowspider, rothes and all creature_magical)
  • Fixed missing {} brackets (forbidden items), missing upside down L (urist/weight) and missing ≡ (exceptional quality items)  in font.ttf
  • Fixed Pillar tile for ascii versions.
  • Fixed reactions that need threads trying to accept webs (resulting in the worker being webbed, and the web destroyed)

Orc Fortress:
  • Updated to 0.31
  • About 50% more buildings and 33% more reactions.
  • Orc specific plants
  • Orc language
  • Orc embark profile

Kobold Camp:
  • Kobold language
  • Kobold embark profile
  • 15 buildings from Masterwork now available to Kobolds
  • Caste system, every fourth Kobold will be good at specific skills
  • Added wooden querns, millstones and mechanisms
  • Kobolds have workshop category titles and ingame skill titles as well, same as dwarves.

Wagons only need one 3-tile path. Anywhere else is fair game.
