v0.34 Talk:Military quickstart

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Page says certain items like an axe, pick, etc... cannot be shared between a civilian profession that uses them and a military profession that uses them. What exactly does this mean? Do you need 2 of said item for any dwarf who switches between the two. Ie, an axedwarf will use one axe for woodchopping, but upon being drafted will *drop* said axe and go get another one to fight with? Really? (So much for my informal militia who all carried axes or picks just in case...). Could someone please say exactly what is meant by the page's statement and clarify the page? --Squirrelloid 17:41, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that's what it means. --Greycat 00:38, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

[edit] SUGGESTION: 'How to attack' section

As a total beginner to DF, I've made my way half way through this guide when a goblin thief appeared, and naturally I would like to use my new military to defend against him. Of course, I can just read up on this elsewhere but I think a 'how to attack' section would be a worthy addition to this quickstart guide.

Actually this guide is for setting up your military, not for using it. You are looking for [1]. Also see [2]--Pie Maker (talk) 21:02, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

[edit] Feedback from anonymous user

Section: Finding Recruits

this whole article is so crapily written. I need to start a military cause I'm in a rush and your autistic writing means I can't even find the information I need -- 16:45, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Can you explain what's hard to understand? From a glance, the only issue I can see is that this section doesn't tell you exactly what to do, but that's the point – finding recruits takes a lot of consideration depending on your current situation, dwarves, etc.. —Lethosor (talk) 03:28, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Feedback: Uniforms

Section: Creating a Squad

This section would benefit from having a link to information on uniforms (what are they, options, how to pick, etc), as well information about the equipment needed for uniforms. Thanks. GREAT wiki by the way! -- 17:42, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
