Can someone bls take a look at my mod and help me figure out what I did wrong? I thought I followed all the steps but I must be missing some tiny insignificant thing again that has thrown the whole system out of whack.

returning artifacts is bugged as fuck.

if you give a priest the artifact they ask for, you'll get a reputation increase, but they never actually put it in the reliquary. if you put the artifact on a pedestal in the reliquary yourself, it will generate a historical event, but you don't get any reputation for it, even if you tell people about it.

Haven't used them in fort mode, but in adventure mode they're a riot.

You can get into one and start pushing it to gain momentum - thing is, once you do start pushing, the game doesn't prevent you from doing so again while you're inside. So on a flat area, you could keep pushing the minecart until you reach ridiculous speeds.

Of course, then you slam into an obstacle and go flying, potentially skidding across the ground and mangling your limbs, or alternatively your character slams into a tree or hillside, at which point they blow apart on impact.

i actually would like to have to deal with sanitary stuff, latrines and sewage.

Flameblow
Flameblow

Main reason is that it would add even more micromanagement to the game - dwarves already take breaks for a lot of things and having them take breaks to do their business would be a tad too much.

I do admit I'm one of the people who would love if it was added, just as an init option that can be toggled on or off - partially because I would love to make a raw sewage drowning trap for invaders.

Note that "neighbours" on that screen are not always "neighbours". Sometimes, you can have an elven civilization as a neighbour while they are on the other side of the world. This just means they can send you a caravan.

I just want my fort to have sewers, something to connect to stuff so it scoops up all the blood, mud and vomit while leaving the streets and water tanks clean. I don't really care for piss and vomit as I'm not jewish or work for Hollywood, just keep it as "if you don't have sewers or mismanage them, your fortress turns into vulnerable trash where everyone got undead ebola or goblins just decided to set up a camp under your hospital.

Also give dwarves the ability to swim when they aren't about to drown and make something off that, so I get to see stuff such as a peasant diving into a pond to recover a mayor's cat bone ring.

Just carve out an actual city into the mountain. Link floor hatches to occasionally rinse all the main thoroughfares into drainage ditches then your sewers. Between that and bathtubs at your key chokepoints, you'll have a clean fort with a sewer. Bonus points for dumping a reservoir onto invaders to splash them into and drown them in the megabest infested sewer

In ages long past, people made wimming pools as part of the uberdwarf project.

If they don't appear in the neighbors list at embark then they can't send invasions or caravans unless they found a settlement closer to you after you've embarked. The range for another civ to count as neighbors is 30 world tiles, and 10 tiles for a necro tower.

girlDog
girlDog

it's an user gives advice that he's never actually tried episode
That will have the opposite of the effect he wants. First, every tile that water touches will become muddy. Then when he opens a cavern for the first time all that mud will turn his floors into a patchwork of unsmoothable cyan/yellow/white. And contaminants won't be cleaned that way, they'll spread and propagate throughout his entire fort. Unless he uses magma, which solves the other problems too, but kind of defeats the purpose.

He's saying that forest retreats can be highly different depending on how you edit the elven civilization file.

I.e if you give them access to underground trees, you will see them living in the giant fungal trees from the underground. Or with access to evil trees, they will live up in glumprongs.

Contaminant spreading and duplication is a stickied bug and possibly the oldest open bug on the tracker. What was suggested in the post I replied to is the absolute worst case scenario for reproducing this bug ad infinitum, and will leave mud on literally every floor touched by water. It will not achieve the stated aim of a clean fort, and is guaranteed to instead make the filthiest fucking fort possible.

I once had a site with three different intersecting geology types, a tunnel in cavern layer one, and a magma pool in cavern layer two. Toyed around with that embark until the game got a new version.

Tunnels show up on the map if you set them to appear :ALWAYS in the inits. They are double-lined roads on the embark map and connect many dwarven sites to each other.

They're pretty cool for fort layout flavor, that's about it. Well, the road intersecting through that map was made of limestone for whatever reason, so I guess there's also that potential added benefit of getting a useful stone, it was rough stone if I'm recalling correctly.

So you know that big streak of vomit you get outside of your fort entrance sometimes from cave adaptation? Imagine that all over the place except filth instead of vomit. That'd be just about anybody's fort who doesn't have a proper sewage system set up, i.e. any new players fort. That's probably why it would become "the game with the poop in it."

Could be circumvented by having it be an init option that's off by default.

Emberfire
Emberfire

that thing of init option is actually good idea, but im curious about how would the sewer sistem affect the gameplay, i mean, structures, build planiffication, moods and creatures

SniperWish
SniperWish

My guess is that dwarves would get unhappy thoughts from stepping in or being covered in filth that would be deposited on the ground by creatures including dwarves if they have no sewage system, maybe miasma producing, and that toilets would basically be buildings you put over an open space similar to wells. You could channel a pit and put a 'toilet' type building over it outside where miasma isn't an issue or build over moving water inside that citizens would use when they have to poo once or twice a season. Seems the most reasonable way to handle it given how the game is set up thus far.

toilets
Too much detail on shit and too autistic.

Just keep it as a feature that gets progressively more complicated until you become a mountain home. If you're doing nothing at 60 dwarves you get miasma clouds that make everyone unhappier because it smells like shit, at 200 you get caveaids which only gets worse with every extra corpse.

A good step would be stopping the retarded spread and copying of contaminants just by walking (boot that steps on vomit can create another vomit pool under rain).

Then you can start to work on coding stuff like the sewers that you see in the human hamlets for fortress mode, checking if water areas are connected shouldn't be that intensive if you have the game check once every month or season. Maybe give that dwarf with Fluids Engineer an actual use by adding an admin role to have someone who inspects that your pumps and pipes are functioning every once in a while. If you fancy it add random events where your pipes get clogged by a necromancer's blood monster and someone has to go check it out.

Well I'm trying to make a new creature without altering the existing vanilla raws. So I'd make a new body file, copy and paste the foot bodypart, and then add grasp to that and add it to the creature's body. My life would have been easier if something like :FOOT_GRASPER: already existed but since it doesn't I'll just do that.

Wait, could you do it in the creature file then, rather than making a new bodypart? Like I said here I'm trying to avoid editing the vanilla raws. Again though I'll probably do like I said and make the new bodypart unless there's an easier route.

Gonna go to sleep now but Fantastic Races just got a semi-major update for anyone interested

-Manat Flyers reworked for a more unique look
-2 new creatures added to Baoyo civ
-8 new subraces added to Vulc civ
-1 new crime against the gods added to the Crysanthrope civ

I am especially excited for the additions to the Vulc race. As a cruel reflection of the dwarves, your targets to express your cruelty were somewhat limited. But now you have a rich variety of untermensch you can treat like animals, or play in adventure mode and wage a one-man war against your oppressors, only to become as cruel as they did. My one concern is that some races are incredibly numerous while others don't seem to show up at all beyond a few dozen (though this doesn't stop you from buying as many as you like in fort mode) and if someone could tell me why that is I'd really appreciate it.

Anybody knows which file stores the constructions and sites in save folder?

If I will find a way to save building changes it would become possible to actually be a ruler of a site.
You just go into a temple and call the script, when you return the temple had become a well.
You go into a keep, call the script - BAM! Another well.
You go into a dark fortress, call the script - BAM! A forest retreat.
You go into a house in the hamlet, call the script - BAM! Plump helmet shop.

Has anybody modified the game in a way to allow elves to grow objects from wood in some kind of sense for the purposes of playing them in fort mode? Seems like it would be kinda fun to build an elf fort with no digging or cutting but the cultural hurdles and lack of vanilla support make it difficult.

Goblins have dark pits and dark fortresses. The former are small towers surrounded by trenches and the latter are tall fortresses with many rooms and chambers, linked to towers by large circular caves (which are used as stockpiles and cemeteries) that contain deep holes leading to the cavern. So it could emulate those.

Grown items have special flag, i suppose it is the only difference. I doubt that you can make it via raws but with dfhack allows it. So it is possible to make a script that will turn all wooden items on the stockpile into a grown version.

Hard to tell. I've managed to copy-paste vault from the vault site into the town center without dfhack or scripts at all, only via hex editing in the save file, so the game actually stores buildings somewhere in the save file, but here troubles start. As the realizations are not getting stored game probably reads something from the save file and then generates the site, using this info, the info about building and the buildings are separate entities.
But I have no idea where the info and how to affect it. It is probably somewhere in the global tables.

I imagine myself in the deep down in the mountain, leading my Platoon. Our mission is to stop dwarf dogs from advancing. We mow down dwarf dogs but they keep coming. I shoot dwarf dogs but I run out of ammo so I draw my sword and begin slaughtering dwarves, since dwarves are way more psychically inferior to me, I slay them by dozens. Then I get shot, but I didn't fall, I kept fighting. Then shot again and again. dwarves were shooting me from a distance like a cowards they are. I lie down, facing up to sky and I see OGUR BOSA (Master) smiles at me, I smile back... Then I woke up, in the dark fortress, my homeland. My goblin brethren gave me a warm welcome to heaven. I finally made it, I finally made it into heaven..

Do you think that one day there will code and raws for thunder?
For magic but also for thunderstorms?
Different materials would have stats for how well they conduct electricity and there'd be evil biomes with constand lightning strikes and you could build copper rods+floors as lightning traps.
Maybe craft some magic stone that stores lightning and mount those on crossbow bolts for lightning bolts.

You mean dwarfs can get tantrums again in the near future?
Here's to waiting 2 years for the magic update. I remember him saying in an interview that the initial release would only include some basic magic things and he would keep adding new magic spells with the future updates. Which means waiting longer.
Economy sounds very cool, but I don't see how it can become Fun.
Basically the combat and encounters would stay the same.

I was hoping for new entities that would scare the shit out of your dwarfs and need new strategies to deal with. Right now we have the basic invaders, the werebeasts, the ettins/giants, the FBs and the clowns. Something that would require a rework of your whole defense would be pretty neat. Maybe with the magic system there'd be enemies that are immune to conventional weapons (although I think that's not really what Toady intends magic to be like).

I suppose economy's main draws for fort mode would be that 1. you'd have to take care of your dwarves material needs much more (everyone except nobles is very content with just having a 2x2 room carved out with a bed right now - they'd probably want specific possessions once economy hits) 2. you wouldn't be able to get massive amounts of exported wealth just by spamming random, useless crafts at a caravan, you'd need to actually sell them shit they want, for example due to a war at the mountainhomes they'd only take armor, food and weaponry, with jewelry and the like not interesting them.

I have a confession to make /dfg/

I used to be a graphics fag

I used to always use tilesets such as obsideon, spacefox, phoebus, even Meph's.

After waiting for the new update for the LNP I couldn't take it anymore and decided to go into it with just the default installation and Therapist.

I should have listened to the ASCII fags for all these years, like holy fuck I love this, I dont have to hassle set it up and its not nearly as hard to deal with as I thought it would be.

THANK YOU ASCII LOVERS FOR OPENING MY EYES!!! I CAN ENJOY THE GAME 10 TIMES MORE NOW!!!!

If you are still a graphics fag, I beg you to at least try one game with ASCII, just use k alot and get over the initial hurdle, it is so much better with ASCII.

Well they'll be added to my mod soon once I finished up some other things, but here are the descriptions for the creatures. They will be the domesticated animals of the Woor civilization. I'll post the raws if you want them though.

The Ovoda:
These creatures are little more than a subspecies of bat adapted for life in the cold forests of the north. That doesn't stop them from being useful, however, as they keep the forest cities of the Woor free of vermin.

The Ruk-Ovoda:
Bred into being through magic and eugenics, the Ruk-Ovoda, or Greater Ovoda, is a terrifying sight to behold. A silent grey phantom, this giant bat is the mount of choice for any Woor seeking to conquer the skies. They can also be trained as hunting animals, or simply as beasts of war.

The Paxah:
A titanic centipede, this creature's blubbery interior kept it safe from the ravages of frost. Now it is a pack-beast of the Woor when it is not used as a mount or warbeast. While not venomous, the strength of its bite is lethal to an unarmored target.

The Agvan:
A fat, slow-witted ape, these animals are prized for their meat and wool firstly, though they also have the advantage of being big and tough enough to haul wagons or fight as warbeasts. Prone to fits of rage despite their stupidity, they can be dangerous to the untrained wrangler.

The Kuxavu:
This blunt-snouted snake is seen as a useful pet for its venom and its vermin-hunting tendencies, but also as a sign of good fortune the longer you can have one. Most Kuxavu only live to around thirty years and are at most the size of a kobold, but it is said that kuxavu can live for as long as three centuries, and in that time grow big enough to tower over elephants. Not that anyone has seen such a thing.

That's pretty tragic to be honest.

She lived a comfy life reporting goings-on in a sleepy little out of the way village for nearly 70 years, only to be appointed to some religious position in her homeland's capital away from all the people she had come to know and love. Living a lonely life, respected but unable to connect with anybody. Then she's constantly (by elf standards) attacked by twisted monsters until one finally showed up at the head of a horde of goblins. She led the futile defense, and she was finally rewarded for her lifetime of effort, service, and sacrifice to her country by having her body mutilated and put on display by goblin trash that came to pillage her home for no reason at all.

6.97 changes:
-5 new creatures added to the Woor civ
-4 new creatures added to the Felyr civ
-1 new creature added to the Ganbu civ
-2 new creatures added to the Rux civ
-1 new slave race added to the Rux civ
-various bugfixes

I've been meaning to add some new civs as well but I want to flesh out the ones I already have first. Since you can play them all in fortress mode, I want them all to be at least a little unique, which in this case means giving each civ a unique roster of animals, weapons, and slaves for the player to utilize.

Now I like the idea of modding it so that Armok is a god but has an extremely low chance of appearing, but when he does appear, he is unanimously worshiped by every worshiping creature.
Religion is actually one of my favorite parts of this game I hope Toady expands on it.
My last fortress had a temple filled with gold statues, but the temple was only for worshipers of Sarvesh, who ~60% of my dwarves worshiped.
Sadly in this fortress my dwarves are much more divided on religion so I can't do that, but I will have a pretty baller temple.

It sounds cool at first except the corpses and disembodied limbs they raise randomly are uncontrollable and hostile to everything including the necromancers who raised them.

It gets fatter than incredibly fat. I forget the exact wording of the lines, but there is one that describes a creature as belarded, and another that refers to them having "great rolls of hanging fat" or something like that. I believe the latter is highest level.

start running away and try to leave my companion behind
he trades blows with the alligator and they keep dodging each other
every time they dodge each other they dodge in my direction

it bites my companion in the lower torso and separates it from the upper torso
looks at me
I strip all of my equipment and drop my backpack

Make sure they value knowledge, this means they like studying and they'll do it in their free time aswell.
Libraries are an extremely important part of a fortress.
Dwarves who value knowledge read books in their free time, books train certain skills and stats and give those dwarves happy thoughts. Libraries make your dwarves better and happier.
Medical staff sould always be scholars, they'll study medicine and write medical books. This keeps them from rusting and improves their skills without anyone getting injured.
Books are worth a lot to traders, use your library to make money.

Another thing if you find there are too many people or a race is missing in the world increase the amount of civilizations.
In small or pocket worlds setting an amount of civilizations too low means a race might not be allowed to exist because the number of civilizations is already at the maximum, setting the civilization higher makes them compete with each other (a civilization can't wage war against itself) and more people die.

Is there a way to tell what kind of werebeast someone is without waiting for a full moon and seeing it?
It looks like being a werebeast is pretty much useless. Sure, you get healed and transform every full moon but most curses are shit and/or annoying and with vampirism you'll just be riding the benefits 100% of the time without any downsides, except injuries are still permanent unlike on a werebeast.
I want to try becoming one to see it firsthand though.

That alligator recruit I escaped earlier came after me, 3 towns away, sleeping inside a house. I woke up in the morning and he was right besides me.
Thankfully my lards of fat and overlapping armor protected me.

I'm gonna test some ingame ethic changes scripts. If it is rewrittable I will make a script for changing ethics while playing.

Isn't brain-wash.lua capable of that?

You can generate a smaller world with more civs and citizens in it than a larger world easily.

No, brainwash changes personality traits.
I wanna change ethics, like cannibalism, tree stuff, and punishments.
Maybe entity values too, not sure.

There was an user who was talking about books and libraries but I don't understand how they work.
Do they train skills? What determines the kind of book a dwarf will write? What determines what kind of book a dwarf will read?

Anybody know why generals, lieutenants and captains don't show up in game? I notice they're missing the [SITE] tag compared to militia captains and commanders, could that be it?

Illusionz

You can see em in worldgen.
If you are meaning why you cant use them in your fortress - they are appointed by ruler and his bruddhas. So you either need to get em via emmigration or mod the game so you had somebody who could appoint them, like mayor.

If somebody has [SITE] tay it means he is not unique. You can have mayor in every fortress, but you can't have a king in every fortress, he is the only one.

I wonder if having more generals around would increase the size or armies/the size of battles. Really I'm just trying to figure out how to revamp war (especially for adv mode), cause at the moment it's fairly lame.

Fuzzy_Logic
Fuzzy_Logic

Size of wars is probably dependant on populations rather than numbers of leaders. But you probably can increase the number of soldiers in adventure mode by making more generals and squads and bigger squads.

GoogleCat

Any idea if changing

[SQUAD:10:soldier:soldiers]
to
[SQUAD:50:soldier:soldiers]

would do anything? Maybe just doing that for lieutenants/captains so you get generals with a "command squad" and lieutenants with a "platoon."

w8t4u

Maybe those squads, surrounding them in adventure mode will become bigger.
And if you have one in the fortress they would support squads of 50 soldiers.

Alright, so I'll add [SITE] and [APPOINTED_BY:MAYOR], maybe with a pop requirement of 100. Give captains/lieutenants big squads.

Now, where the hell are human lords/dudes stored in the raws? Could I give them stuff like knights, dukes, etc? Same for gobbos (though then I'd like to figure out how to make demons their generals).

Humans have generated positions. You can make all or SOME positions generated, including your civ.

So i'm having a problem. My Mason & Mayor just got possessed but he wont claim either of my mason workshops?

hairygrape
hairygrape

Careful with gobbos, any civ with dark fortress main site type should not have generated positions or positions with [CHAT_WORTY], this would crash the game.

Methshot

Check his other skills, build all workshops he's even dabbled in.

Firespawn

Already done. Maybe it fucked up because I was moving my workshops inside when he got possessed? I deconstructed my outside one, and built two in my actual workshops and during that period he got possessed

Okay he FINALLY claimed a workshop, after I removed the other three I had out. That was fucking weird.

Could I get elves to use "grown metal" things? I'm aware that grown wood can't have its stats changed bc it's tied to normal wood, but could they just grow steel and shit for better weapons?

CouchChiller

How do you control what's generated and what's not? They've got their special RNG priests and things. Could I keep those (presumably with [VARIABLE_POSITION]) while also adding more non-generated positions?

happy_sad

VARIABLE_POSITIONS:ALL means that all positions are generated

you probably could but i've never tried, VARIABLE_POSITIONS:NAME should probably made position variable

I think I will. I suppose I'll have to copy similar things for all the other ones I want to keep random (law giver and such). Then military I can copy from dorfs.

If I include the [SITE] tag on a position from someone that doesn't have [ENTITY_CONTROLLABLE], will it do anything?

Works fine.

gui/gm-editor unit.status.current_soul.personality.traits and values?

[SITE] means non-unique, every settlement of the civ could have this position, hamlet, mountain hall, tree city, anything. [ENTITY_CONTROLLABLE] affects nothing.

Need_TLC

ETHICS.
EAT_SAPIENT_KILL, KILL_ENEMY, KILL_PLANT, etc.
It is not stored in units, it is stored in entities and cultural identities. I want to make it possible to change them dynamicaly, so you could suddenly decide that eating sentiens creatures is good and enforce it over your site or entire civ.

to add on, normally graphical FPS is 40-70, in my third level cave it drops to 17 with the other FPS.
