Started in a haunted biome and 3 nice ogres came to visit me shortly after digging out a cave. My 4 axedorfs made quick work of them and I wanted to reward them by serving them lavish ogre stew. Only problem is I can't seem to butcher them :s

So: Is it possible to butcher ogre corpse? Or are they too... sentient?

- I have refuse collection from outside enabled.
- The corpses are lying in refuse/corpse stockpile.
- Stockpile is 10 tiles away from butcher shop.
- I have 2 butchers (1 of them waiting for ogre stew in makeshift hospital).
- There are no forbidden or dumping issues.
- Corpses are not rotten.
- Military killed the ogres.

HaLp me pl0x! Dorfs needs meats.

(I'm pretty much a newbie, so this may seem like a stupid question.)

OK, here's what happened, I tried to pave the floor of a big room but I made a typo and filled the entire 6x6 space with ramps.
Now I can't removed them. I tried both d-z and d-n but nothing happens. It's not that my dwarfs don't come to work, its worse, the designation doesn't even seem to register. I really want to salvage this room! What am I doing wrong?

I decided to give a hand and sent a post into social bookmarks. I hope the popularity will rise in.

Just going to put this here.  Can you tell I'm terrible at making proper thread starts?

Intriguing.
It has been down for "about an hour" for almost five hours now.
This forum's still here, so here's a post detailing my confusion.

I've been out of the community since the bay12games site went down...  but I just got a PM stating I was next in the 'nostalgia fort'.  Sorry if I've entirely missed something, but A) for me the forum is still down and B) I'd like to participate in this but can't find the thread >_>

Could anyone help me?

I suppose since I'm in the alliance I should attempt to get board access too.

I just sent a message about somebody attacking me and the resources in the debris field being up for grabs(if it's possible for others to take it that is)

I don't suppose that could be substituted for the I am indeed the person on the boards message to avoid spam could I?

EDIT: Alrighty, it's been awhile so I can send the message without worrying about being spammy.  Sent.

Regarding 2: Shame to hear it, since I finally figured out how to make up + down stairwells, and now it's too late.  Oh well: I'm sure my fortress won't survive too much longer anyway.

Regarding the answer to 3: Aha!  Will check that directly.  Thanks.

Regarding 4: Well, I thought I was going to need to irrigate, but discovered a huge underground source of sediment while digging towards the river.  So I can skip the irrigation for the time being at least.

Little advice:
When last I played this game, it was horizontal.  It seems as if being able to dig down levels has a profound influence on fortress architecture.  Do you build vertically instead of horizontally these days?  To me it seems like three decentralize floors of workrooms and two or three floors of living space built around a central stair shaft is absolutely the most effective design. 

Is this the general consensus?

I am not part of the alliance, I had to register in universe 30. Can I still get access? If you look through the topic in the B12 forum you should find that I posted there.

Rather than start a new thread every time I have a question, I've decided to try to keep my many queries to this one thread.  Any and all advice and help gratefully accepted.

1)  I take it that the chasm is gone from this version?
No, it's still there, but no longer does every area contain everything.
You're embarking somewhere without one.

2) The wiki warns against building many-storied up/down stairwells, because dwarves fall down them.  Should I avoid them?  How do y'all recommend one design multi-level stairways?
I've never seen them fall down them...

3) I don't seem to be able to get my barrel stockpile to work.  I've specified for furniture - wood - barrels, bins, buckets.  But no matter how long I wait, even when several of my dwarves devoted to hauling items/furniture, my carpenter shop simply fills up with empty barrels.  Am I doing something wrong, or have I discovered a bug?
You're not accepting any QUALITY levels.

I'll be back with more questions presently.  It looks as if irrigation works very differently from the previous version I used to play, and I'm not sure I understand the explanation in the wiki.
Irrigation is fairly useless.
