Speaking of pressure plates, do creatures with [trAPAVIOD] (i.e. kobolds/demons) set them off, given the pressure plate is set to the right size?

Yes, after all, the cooks only need to grab two items instead of three or four, reducing hauling time (on the part of the cook, anyways).  As to the time of the actual task, I'm not sure.

Don't forget Stozu. He killed 750(ish) elves, two megabeasts (maimed another) and obliterated half of my fortresses population with his own two hands (and morningstar). The story is on the other forum, so when its up again search for 'legendary goblin'.

I found something similar to your project on the map archive:http://mkv25.net/dfma/map-2579-crazyproject2alloutcrazy

Rawr! The Demon of ... has arrived!

Yeah, I found out because I thought the forums had been down abnormally long, so I poked around looking for the forums.

One problem with my suggestion is that it would mess up the balance of Bismuth Bronze. BB is currently 2 copper + 1 tin + 1 Bismuth = 4 BB. It simply allows you to save a bit on tin when you have some bismuth lying around. If the Bronze formula was changed to 3 copper + 1 tin then BB (and Bismuth in general) would be pretty pointless.

However, I was quite surprised to look up Bismuth Bronze and discovered that it's actual formula is 52% copper, 20% nickel, 12% Zinc, 5% lead and 1% Bismuth. In short, it doesn't contain any tin at all and is very similar to nickel steel (aka, "that stuff that wasted all my zinc I could have used to make brass"). It doesn't sound like a weapons-grade metal either. I submit that Bismuth Bronze as it exists in the game is essentially a fantasy metal and can be changed to a fantasy formula, like 3 copper + 1 Bismuth.

The wiki says:

If you want your dwarves to gain skill as cooks you should only prepare easy meals, since this gives them the most practice per ingredient used.

I don't care how much food it takes for my cook to gain skill.  I just want it to happen faster.  With that as the goal, are easy meals still the best way to go?

The site is up, that's AWESOME. Regardless of the state of the forums (stupid meany old web host) it's cool to be able to read the devs again.

hehe. Although I have to retry... 1 month in, after waaaay too much designating, the dwarves were literally killing themselves. Falling down their own pits and stuff. Quite nasty. Now (as in tomorrow) I'm going to try it again with better organization.

I have wondered why one can't take the Narrow clothing, made of silk, and piece it into Dwarven clothing, or at least make silk bags and ropes from the pieces.
