User talk:AbuDhabi

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Welcome to this wiki! Dwarf Fortress rapidly becomes more complicated, and we're always glad to have new writers.
Since you should try to follow wiki standards, and you probably don't know ours yet, we've made a list of basic guidelines. Note that this is a template, not a customized message for you.

  • To tell us who you are when you talk, please sign your posts on discussion pages by typing ~~~~ after your posts. This can also be inserted with the Button sig756222.png button if JavaScript is enabled.
  • Don't put a question mark in the title of a page. Question marks mess things up, and your page will be moved to a different name.
  • When making comments on a talk page, use one more colon before each line in your comment than was used in the comment you reply to. In general, put exactly one empty line between comments by different users but do not use blank lines inside of a comment.
  • Avoid making many small edits to a page. Instead, try to make one large edit. This makes the history of the page a lot easier to read.
  • Don't edit the user page of another user. If you want to tell them something, add the comment to their talk page.
  • If you put a comment at the bottom of a talk page with section headers, you've probably put it in a section. Putting things in the wrong sections is confusing. You can create a section!
  • Generally, read and follow the rules. They're like a little constitution, except not boring! Really, read them.
  • Read the site announcements regularly, they contain important info.
  • Check up on the manual of style occasionally, it's still being written, but will contain important style info soon.
  • Some pages have version-specific articles, (ie: 40d, 23a...) when creating a redirect from the mainspace to a version specific article, use cv: instead of the version namespace.

DF2010:Elk bird[edit]

They die easily to a moderately equipped and trained squad of dorfs. 

Hi. I've seen some vague and undefined statements on these boards, but that is right up there with the best of them. What is "moderately equipped"? How "moderately" trained? How many in a squad? Also, there is SO much randomness involved in combat, unless you've seen many combats your one/few encounters are not very significant or reliable. The only real measure is 1:1, or 1:x, and either a naked wrestler or a fully armoured and "well trained" dwarf (or more than one, but a concrete number - not "a squad", which can be from 2-10 iirc). Just letting you know that I'm removing the above, since it's really meaningless - if you want to add something concrete from your experience (perhaps on the talk page, until it gets confirmed?), it would be welcomed.

I wondered what the hell an Elk Bird was, searched for it here, found nothing, so I created a stubby page. IIRC, it was a 3 dorf squad with iron weapons and incomplete leather/iron armour with skills around competent. I think the first dorf who got to the bird killed it in one shot or so.

Old comment[edit]

Just wanted to reply to your comment here. I know your comment is old and your problem is probably already resolved or changed in recent updates, but if you are still having this issue, I can resolve it; you have to remove the "train" (t) assignment from their whatever building you used to assign a barracks. --Gzalzi 16:19, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, stuff's working fine with the more recent versions. Thanks anyway. 23:23, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
