I set up DF to use the Guybrush and those suggested graphics but it seemed blurry.  Rather than work on that, I'm going to do other things that are not DF.  In the meantime, I have decided on my dwarf persona: Lushy McPissdrunk, village boozer and general layabout.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

Toss my name in as a dwarf.  No rquests on the job, I'll haul your stone - you damn slave driver - if that's what needs be done.

How do you get it to use so much vertical space?  I can make the window larger, but most of it is black space.  I know I've adjusted this before, but it's been too long since I did it.

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

You probably need to change [GRAPHICS_BLACKS_SPACE=NO]. I tried to be as clear as I could, here in terms of configuration.

Finally got everything to work as it should and, as expected, it's sucking the productivity at work right out of me.

All credit to Toady, he's really, really brought it along since last I saw it.  Much, much more fun.

I am partial to settling in the middle of a human town.  I dig straight down and begin dismantling their town for my own use.  I wonder if he fixed that?

If you build near an open pool of magma, I heartily recommend walling it off, or channeling water to seal the top level.

Yes cave in have been gone since the z-axis was added.I believe you can still force a cave in tho if you attach a lever to a support built in the center of a room.

The cave-in still exists, but you can turn it off if you want with the init.txt.


Just watched a gobbo ambush party of 10 slaughter the elven trading party... Thanks for all this wooden crap, hippies!


And a quick question... There were no large hills where I embarked, so I just tunneled into the ground. I built a wall around the hole, but I also want to put fortifications and a barracks and maybe even a second level. How do I build a roof to an outside structure, and how do I go about making a second floor? Up stairs on the ground floor on the dirt, up a level and down stairs, then just build a floor up there?

I don't know off the top of my head but it was in one of those demo videos from the other thread.  The narrator built an outside fortification with a roof on it for archers to stand on.

All your questions and more are answered here. Basically, create the walls and a stair leading up to it, then create 'floors' on the level above - that's your roof. You're correct.

Episode 3: An Ambush! Curse them!

Episode Goals:
Put the new recruits to work
Continue pawning our rock instruments to anyone who wanders by
Defend the base against Ambushes

When we last left our intrepid band of slaves dwarves, some new recruits had arrived! Some brought useful skills. Others...



A barracks was hastily carved and a kennel constructed to give our new hunter some dogs.




Now, for the rest of you purring maggots.



You dare to show up on my doorstep - hungry, tired and with nothing to contribute? Well, we'll see about that.



You're going to LEARN to be useful. I hope you like lower back pain, because you two are going to become real good friends. You'll work under the instruction of the two who came with USEFUL SKILLS.



Start with the Sheriff's new bedroom. He's been complaining that rough hewn walls are just not good enough for his majesty.






You've done an adequate job on this room, peasants. The Sheriff agrees.

"... Can ... we ... rest ... now?"

Rest? REST?! You want to eat, don't you? Get back to work! You don't get to rest you've finished ALL the rooms.




We've made it to Summer! It's that time of year again. More traders. I give them rock instruments and take their entire stock of leather, cloth, wood and other miscellaneous and sundry items.



There's a poor cat who's keeping me up half the night with it's racket. I really can't tell what's the matter with it; it seems to have gotten injured. It just cries and cries...



Suddenly Jade Falcon stops what he's doing, rushes to the mason's workshop, and comes out with this ... thing:



Great, that's just great. What am I supposed to do with this? I had planned on using TECHNOLOGY to solve our problems. You know, a millstone?

Throw it in the storeroom.

Oh, the traders are leaving. What's that you say? You LIKE our rock insturments? You're amazed at how we can make both drums and harps out of nothing but solid rock? Yeah, I think it's pretty amazing too.




Oh, you're done. Already?



Well, OK. Now what? Let's see, you've gotten pretty strong under long hours of grueling labor. I have an idea. I'll tell you want - I'm feeling merciful today. You can put down the chisels. You know the barracks up there? That's going to be your new home. You're to be our new guards! Go ahead and lift weights or spar or whatever it is you do for a while. I'll give you weapons when you're strong enough not to kill each other with them.




Finally - all quiet. Except for that damn cat. I think I hear something outside. What's that?



Oh, not a prob...



(part 2 to follow)

Episode 3: An Ambush! Curse them! (part 2)

I zoom and there they are - 5 goblins chasing a poor mule across the grass.



... they caught it.

.

After that, they head straight for the next living people.. which happens to be the caravan, unloading their trade goods at the depot.

Remember a few episodes ago where I told you about caravan guards? Things didn't turn out so well for the goblins.



Only one got away safely, he fled right and off the map. Unfortunately, there was a battle wound sustained:



She is dragged back and remains unconscious in her bedroom. It is likely she'll be bedridden for a season while the broken leg heals but will eventually make a full recovery (as it's a yellow wound). Unfortunately, I didn't see how this happened; by time I found Lantyssa, she was safely snuggled in her bed (with her dog, who also survived)


And, just like that, things abruptly return to normal. Well, as normal as things CAN be around here. Our wrestlers make progress on their bodybuilding...



Wait, what's that next to Strazos?



... You know what, I don't even want to know.

Trying to burn the last image out of my head, we have another crazy!



Schild freaks out and minutes later has decided on a change of profession:




Oh, it's a commemorative idol!


And finally, someone distinguished themselves on the wrestling mat:



He's made the head of the guards and they will all follow him from now on, including the newest recruit, Sky. I'll get into that more next episode.

The recruit made a bad move so the legendary axe user had to pull his blow or turn him into hamburger.  Unfortunately with his skills it meant the axe pulverized his leg.  Make the recruit do a thousand push-ups.
