So I got my rear end kicked by my own hand after a mummy cut it off and raised it against me.

Welp.

On a semi-related tangent, has anyone found and read any slabs/tomes, yet? I'm really eager to see what sort of zany powers we can get from them.

Not gonna wear that.

Start Your Day With Extinction was a legendary emerald-bound book.The written portion consists of a 89 page guide titled Start Your Day With Extinction, authored by Aspa Curlchannel. It concerns the secrets of life and death. The writing is quite cheerful.



- -

There's also the 18 page essay Demise: Common Practice about the secrets of life and death, written in a reasonably serious manner. Then there's Musings On The Book which is 53 pages with just some moments of cleverness, about Demise. They are by the same author, written 10 years apart.


Just looking at the books in legends mode is hours of fun

Oh, it's just a cat.


So is this a relatively stable version with no game-breaking issues, or do we still have problems like 'don't equip your guards because there is a bug that will make them hoard swords' or 'these guys only wear mittens and capes' or 'don't bring cats because they breed forever and slow your machine to a crawl'? I wouldn't mind trying to replay this game. Has a year's worth of dev effort paid off yet?

I can't wait until the civ system is fleshed out some more and sponge man caravans start showing up with little coral wagons full of engraved sand dollars and whalebone bolts. And then the sponge man ambassador warns you that your alliance with the squid men is unwise, and will not be tolerated for much longer. Meanwhile the squid men keep offering you huge sums of squid man dollars if you'll send troops to support them, which you keep refusing because what the hell squid men how are you supposed to send a bunch of dwarves to fight for them on the bottom of the sea.

edit: and you don't really want to anger either faction because they are a great source of exquisite bows, due to the fact that the elves keep drowning archers en masse in an effort to besiege them for cutting down so many underwater trees.

Oh god this. I'm looking at the raws waiting for the world to gen and it's one big . Once someone actually figure out what they can do I can only imagine what kind of stuff will be possible. In the last thread I said the Dwarf Fortress needed mutations. Well, that may very well be possible with this new release.

We have no idea what's broken in 34.1, but let me list some of the more visible malfunctions in the previous version (31.25):

- Dwarves don't use clothes. They come wearing them, but they won't equip anything new once the old ones give out. They stay and litter your fortress, hurting your framerate with constant wear calculations and blocking construction. A popular workaround is to mod your dwarves to wear generic clothes/jumpsuits that are classified as armor, not subject to wear.

- Large pots (stone/clay barrels) don't obey some barrel management rules in stockpiles. Wood and metal barrels have no such problems.

- Beekeepers sometimes get stuck when splitting nests, caused by faulty task assignment logic. Canceling tasks/resetting labors breaks the loop.

- Some of the largest grazing animals require more food than they can possibly eat, causing them to starve in mid-feeding. Removing [GRAZER] tags lets your tame elephants live.

All in all .25 was the most stable version in a looong time.

Gonna go back and kill that drat steel-pick-wielding minotaur. First step: become legendary ambusher. Process: pick a wall in the starting village, walk into it. While still holding that direction key, press and hold the opposite key. Begin to vibrate, accelerating more and more, growing ever more stealthy in the process. Soon, the villagers come out to witness this phenomenon, but after a time, only some of them can even see it at all. "It's one of those magic eye things! If you cross your eyes a little, you can see a crazy woman!"

There also seems to be a bug in the last one where dorfs just ignore stockpiles after a time. I made an ore stockpile deep underground and then they just stopped caring about any of them altogether. I had to abandon the fortress because well, I need stockpiles to work.

He was a human necromancer. It doesn't say what he did but there are like a dozen different books about him, some of which were penned by none other than Sporro Closevipers. Charming man.

Looking at legends it seems odd that megabeasts die so easily now. The only thing that survived the very short world gen in this world were a few krakens, glowing ones, and straw colossus. Dragons, hydras, and other megabeasts are all dead. Maybe they get targeted more by adventurers.

Man, the more I look at interactions, the more I think that its going to allow all sorts of totally insane poo poo.

Just the things I have thought of: Booze that makes you invincible for a day, at the end of which your heart explodes. Creatures with "psychic" attacks that cause your brain to melt and your attributes to rot. A region of endless battle, where anyone that enters becomes pathologically hostile. Liches with fireballs and death bolts. Head bumps that steal souls.

Well, there's no longer any "don't go outside" order so if you want to order everyone inside during an attack, you'll at least need to use them for that. It's pretty common to set up a panic room in your great hall so everyone can party down while the fort is under siege.

Oh boy, I discovered the first terribly broken thing!



This over 100 giant mosquitoes showing up on my map. This obviously isn't supposed to happen, as this many creatures is not only impossible to fight but it is also hell on your FPS. Thing is, Toady didn't intend for this to happen. If you look at the raws, giant mosquitoes are only supposed to arrive in groups of one.

So what the hell happened? Well Toady cuts corners. You see, every giant and animal man version of another animal just copies their tags with modifiers applied. It doesn't appear to overwrite their population and cluster size though. Mosquitoes are a vermin that shows up in large groups, so as a result giant mosquitoes also show up in large groups despite being nonvermin.

DWARF FORTRESS!!
