DF2014:Finished goods

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
(Redirected from Useless crap)
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is about the current version of DF.

Finished goods are items that go to a finished goods stockpile when made. Many of these items are frequently referred to as trade goods as they are lightweight and suitably valuable for trading. They include crafts, goblets, instruments, toys, large gems, and totems, some of which have several sub-types.

Finished good types with several sub-types may have generic workshop orders to produce random sub-type items, e.g. "Make crafts". Additionally, some specific subtypes of goods can be ordered directly at an appropriate workshop or through the manager. If you have a mandate to make rings, you can order rings directly instead of waiting for a generic "crafts" job to produce rings; others like puzzleboxes, though, can only be produced by generic jobs ("toys").

Some types of trade goods (Crafts and Goblets) can be produced in multiples. It is possible to get up to three crafts from a single resource. Skill does not affect the chance to produce multiples.

[edit] Types of trade goods

[edit] Crafts

Crafts include figurines, rings, earrings, amulets, bracelets, crowns, and scepters. They are the only type of trade good that appears on its own page in the Trade Depot menu. Some subtypes of crafts can reference historical figures and events (figurines, for example); this does not have any meaningful effect on the value of the craft.

One generic order to "make crafts" consumes one resource and produces one to three items, two on average. All subtypes, if they can be produced from the chosen material, have an identical chance to be produced. Some crafts such as bracelets can be worn by dwarves like clothing.

Gem and glass crafts cannot be made directly; they may only be produced randomly by gem cutting jobs.


[edit] Goblets

Goblets have no subtypes, but have different names depending on the material from which they are made: metal and glass goblets are simply goblets, stone goblets are called mugs, and wooden goblets are called cups.

Goblets are always produced at a 3:1 ratio.

Goblets can be used by dwarves for drinkingv0.42.01. If no goblets are available in a dining room stockpile or a coffer in a tavern, a thirsty dwarf can drink alcohol straight from the barrel, but this will result in an unhappy thought. Goblets can also be used to transport liquids in Adventurer mode.

[edit] Instruments

Main article: Instruments

¿ Instruments can be composed of one or more components made from specific materials. The presence of multiple high-value components can increase the trade value of an instrument far beyond any other finished good. Instruments can be used by performers in taverns or temples.

[edit] Toys

æ Toys include mini-forges, toy hammers, toy axes, toy boats, and puzzleboxes. Dwarven children can play with toys.

[edit] Totems

An example of a skull totem.

ç Totems are made from skulls by a bone carver at a craftsdwarf's workshop. Totems cannot be built as permanent structures, but careful management of custom stockpiles will allow the player to place totems at artistically pleasing locations around the fortress.

Although totems have the same base value as all other crafts, totems made from the skulls of more valuable animals like unicorns will fetch a hefty price.

[edit] Large gems

Large gems have no subtypes. Ironically, large gems can be ordered directly for every material except gems and glass; cutting any gem or raw glass has a chance to produce a large gem instead of ordinary cut gems. Large gems currently have no use beyond trade.

[edit] Materials

Most materials can be used to make trade goods. On occasion, a dwarf in a strange mood will make a trade good out of a material not normally suited for it (e. g., a bone toy).

1 Instruments and their components are procedurally generated items; the materials they can be made from depend on the particular world.

2 Wooden toys can only be made using the job manager, as the craftsdwarf's workshop interface does not permit selecting them. Bug:3119

3 Adamantine cloth cannot be used to make crafts (Adamantine crafts can be created at a Metalsmith's forge).

4 Amulets, Earrings and Bracelets are the only crafts that can be produced from leather, plant cloth, and silk cloth. All crafts can be produced from yarn cloth.

5 Skull totems, like bone crafts, are made by a bone carver at a craftsdwarf's workshop.

6 Crafts and Large Gems are produced randomly by cutting jobs at a Jeweler's workshop, with the Gem cutting labor. Raw Glass has a 33% chance to be cut into a Large Gem or a Craft (with 11 crafts for every 16 large gems). Raw Gems have a 5% chance to be cut into a Large Gem or a Craft (with 1 craft for every 8 large gems). See the talk page for more info.
