Dogs can laugh![edit]

Engraved on the wall is an exceptionally designed image of Zolak Copperdungeons the goblin and Tradehelps the dog by Fath Lûritstâkud. Zolak Copperdungeons is making a plaintive gesture. Tradehelps is laughing. The artwork relates to the mortal wounding of the goblin Zolak Copperdungeons by the dog Tradehelps in Hammerbronze in the early winter of 1054 during The Attempted Abduction at Hammerbronze.

Sidedness effect[edit]

You know, how in 40d, it'd only affect one side, the side if it was engraved from? This needs to be rechecked for 2010. I'm STILL getting used to all of 2010's weirdness, so I'm not touching economy yet. --Aescula 02:52, 10 May 2010 (UTC)


I added the bit about toggling engravings. To gather this info, I had to email Mike Mayday (who was nice enough to reply). Feel free to add/edit what I posted. I'll subscribe to the article, so feel free to post any questions here or make any edits needed.

Where's the picture?[edit]

the 40d page has the funny cheese engraving comic, but the df2010 page does not. Are we not moving it for some reason? It's totally the funniest engraving joke ever.

I concur. Moving the picture to this one. --Egodeus 06:56, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

What happened to SHOW_ALL_HISTORY_IN_DWARF_MODE ?[edit]

No longer in init.tx - does it still work? ---

It's been moved d_init.txt (or was it init_d.txt. Anyway the other init file.) and yes it does work. --Egodeus 06:55, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

How to see an Engraving?[edit]

Well, one of my dwarfs has engraved a wall. I wish to see what did he engrave. How?

Press k, move the cursor over the wall, and press enter. Same goes for floor engravings, but you may have to use + or - to highlight the floor first if there are objects around.
