Is the opposite possible? Being disgusted or terrorized by birth and children?
>>
>>297630517
I ... suppose so, big maybe. If a dwarf that finds the idea of family terrible SOMEHOW manages jump through the social bullshit, but that's very unlikely that these dwarves will even get close enough to mate with someone
Never seen it happen

I'm not sure I get it
You mean sticking in a world and playing multiple games at once in said world?
I really enjoy that, though sadly my worlds end up laggy as hell after a few years and small, low civ world are bleh

No, basically I make a backup of my save every few days.

Oh
I really should, I've lost a few worlds to weird stuff that could have been prevented by reloading to a previous save

I mostly use it to track back things when something weird happens in my fort.
There can be some weird shit in dorf and sometimes being able to go back can solve mysteries.

I'm torn on a fun way to defend this fort. Later down the line I really want to have a minecart shotgun or ballista firing squad, but something simple for now.

Its been a while since I used traps, are they still a PITA where your dwarves will regularly injure themselves trying to unjam/reset them?
>>
>>297638740
Not really
I mean, if the traps are jammed/need to be reset in the middle of an enemy siege and your dwarves aren't burrowed somewhere, they'll try and do the task, making them run in enemies, but that's about it
Traps are quite broken though, specially weapon traps with actual trap components in them, might ruin it for you
>>
>>297638740
Never had that problem. Although I've mostly used cage traps
>>
>>297638740
>dwarves will regularly injure themselves trying to unjam/reset them?
Did that ever happen? I vaguely remember but I'm 80% sure it hasn't worked like that for a long time if ever.

Weapons in weapontraps can actually break now which is cool and makes glass components slightly less useful

Hey guys, quick question.
How many units of oil does a jug hold? In addition, is oil more or less valuable for soapmaking. What about cooking?

>>297641416
1000
https://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2014:Storage#Quick_Reference

Regarding values: each tallow is worth 1 dwarf buck, so a stack of cat tallow [6] is worth 6. Whereas oil, according to the wiki, has a value of 5 dwarf buck.
However I don't know if soap can have different values based on the ingredients. All of my soap is 5 dwarf bucks and it was made with different kinds of tallow.
>>
>>297642860
>>297641416
Wait, I don't think the units in the reference are the same as the amount of oil. So 6 oil will probably occupy more than 6 cubic cm
>>
>>297628368
>Can't add more complex immigration features to your simulator because of his politics
He sounds like a religious puritan
>>
>>297642860
I'm pretty sure the ingredients do effect soap's value at least rock nut soap is worth more than tallow soap

You can't post in this thread if you haven't disbanded your city guard and dismantled your prisons.

I don't need city guards or prisons, but that's because I send every dwarf that wants to act like a nig to the nearest goblin pit

Don't forget replacing your dwarves with elves and goblins

Question here
if I convict a citizen of a crime while my captain of the guard and hammerer are away on a mission, will this effect the convict's sentence at all? or will the sentence be carried out as soon as my captain of the guard returns?

I wrote a long post just now but I accidentally backpaged and lost the whole thing.

I ain't writing it all again, so in a nutshell:

- After almost a decade I finally know the basics of the game
- No one has died yet, but we haven't been attacked yet and I think it's coming soon
- Gonna get traps and military going
- I'm contracting autism and I love it
- What's a better way to store materials? I set an amount barrels in their area but they don't do anything.
>>
>>297674884
barrels are liquids, bins are solids
>>
>>297674884
Make bins, some materials like raw stone/logs can't be stored in anything though
Also wheelbarrows help carrying stuff faster
I'd also advise giving your dwarves a cabinet along with a chest in their bedrooms, they'll be able to store clothes
Plus, (d)esignating floors and walls to be smoothed and then engraved really add a lot of value to bedrooms, dining rooms and everything else really, I really advise you get a dedicated engraver so he can start making masterpieces, dwarves tolerate rough floors and walls but meh

Haulers will get to it eventually
Remember to disallow bins in piles of weapons and armor you expect your military to use and barrels in piles of seeds.

So I just picked this game up over the weekend, and I have to ask, what part of this game is the hardest to wrap your mind around, and what is the easiest?

I've kept most of my dwarfs alive for a couple years now and i think I'm getting the hang of it, so far, but I don't know how to gauge how much or how little I know. Just that each new plan I get sends me to the wiki for quite a while.
>>
>>297693245
>the hardest to wrap your mind around
That it's mostly mad-lib that doesn't matter

>what is the easiest
That grognards flock to an artificially "difficult" game which actually just has terribad UI
>>
>>297693245
The god damn bugs
>>
I just learned that criminals convicted of theft don't even have the item they stole confiscated on arrest... Bravo Toady

>>297693245
Hardest? the military screen is unreasonably obtuse although understandable the dwarvern psyche on the other hand will never be fully understood.
Easiest? I don't know. The job manager screen is quite self explanatory and very powerful.
>>
>>297697615
Oh man, I'm glad you used the military screen as your example. I figured I had the basics set up and went to create a squad and the various logistics around it, and that whole process made me wonder what I had gotten myself into.
