    Dwarf Fortress or something like that. – 15:29
    — Ben Lubar


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    I actually played Dwarf Fortress back before I entered the workforce properly. I wanna say... .29? .30? .31?

    I said I'd go back and pick it up again when Army Arc went in.

    Did it? Or is that still 'next year'?



  • Army arc is done. We're onto the research/taverns/temples/dances/music/books arc.


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    Huh. I guess I'll have to find some free time. Does it 64bit yet? Does it multiCPU yet? Because infuriatingly awful performance was also a big killer (mostly because 32bit and single thread)




  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    Are all those little 3x3 rooms your workshops? I hate having workshops be in rooms just big enough--the doorways always became bottlenecks for the dwarves. This was back in 2008, so we'd be talking .27 or so. Is pathfinding any better?



  • No, my workshops are in a big workroom with no walls:

    I spent a long time putting descriptions in that imagemap. I wonder why nobody has looked at them yet.



  • Status: So I found my mayor. At the top of a tree.

    How the fuck did he get up there?


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    He's a noble (an appointed one, anyway). Clearly he knows.

    I still can't read the damned tiles. I need a tileset.



  • Status: Cut down the tree.

    That red text looks promising.

    I moused over them but I guess not long enough for the titles to pop up.

    I couldn't come up with a comment that reflected the abject silliness of your rooms' names in the time allotted.



  • Status: Mayor brought to the hospital. A human bard followed him in.

    Apparently "unconscious from falling five stories from the top of a tree and being hit by the aforementioned tree on the way down" is a good time to have a meeting about working at the tavern.



  • Status: Hopefully the mayor won't be able to climb trees with a crutch.

    How in the world do you get all that from a symbol on the screen?!



  • There are combat logs.

    Plus, I'm the one who ordered the tree to be cut down.

    @ben_lubar said:

    I have a feeling this game hides a ton of information...



  • Status: I guess if you keep following the mayor through his hospital stay you'll eventually get to talk to him.



  • @ben_lubar said:

    He is high. Is he the mayor of SF?



  • No, he's the mayor of Lakishzalìs.



  • No, but my dwarves elected a 112 year old as their mayor. I guess they had too much of the 18 year old mayor's shit.



  • Status: Looks like someone was having too much fun at the tavern.

    Edit: Wait, is she cleaning alcohol off her teeth using soap and river water?



  • I'm pretty sure that after having an artery opened by pecan wood logs, the correct status for the mayor is "dead".

    @izzion said:

    artery opened

    Depends on which artery. You have more than just the "main" ones after all. We're going to assume he merely tourniquet-ed it before passing out (repeatedly).



  • Thank you @boomzilla that was getting annoying.

    1929?

    Do you wear an onion on your belt?



  • My most vivid memory of Dwarf Fortress was when the dev released the most anticipated update after a year-long absence... on april 1st.
    It was quite fun watching everyone's disbelief on IRC.

    shit

    Did you not build an efficient sewer system? I feel like that would have been a much more effective way to deal with the first mayor's shit.

    How is cutting down a tree "combat"? Is there anything in this shitty game that's not buggy and broken?

    It's combat because the dwarf was injured. I think the combat log system would be a good example of something not buggy and broken.

    You mean that subwindow isn't named that way because the dwarf was injured by logs?



  • If I jump off a ledge in World of Warcraft, the resulting damage (and optional death) and healing afterward also shows up in the combat log. Even though the game agrees I was never in combat. I consider this to be working as intended.

    No, but if the dwarf is injured by logs, it shows up in the logs.

    Unfortunately if the logs are injured, they don't appear in the logs.

    We need logs logs



  • Those screenshots look like something our test suites did when some buffer somewhere overflowed and started printing random non-ASCII data to the console.

    Edit: well, shit.

    No need, I have a good place to do that today!



  • @sloosecannon said:

    ... ok.

    I remember all of those WWI battles where there were so many casualties from log-falling.

    Just because WOW has the same bug doesn't make it not-a-bug. And it's the particularly aggravating kind, because it's just a copy change. Doesn't even require touching code.





  • Those logs weren't cut down, they were carefully arranged into a trap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  • Many ewoks died making those traps!


  • Winner of the 2016 Presidential Election

    I'd like to file a @blakeyrat bug.

    @blakeyrat erroneously detects normal operation as bugs. May be related to use of Discourse.

    Okay, where do you suggest we put logs about people getting injured by environmental hazards?

  • Okay, where do we put the log entries about dwarves attacking things, or dwarves yelling things during combat?



  • @blakeyrat said:

    If they cut it in a single swing, using the power of truth, it is.
