i have tried to limit my dwarf population for three fortresses now, i dont seem to have any luck with this... is this a known issue? (i tried searching the forum but nothing relevant came up)

this is what i have in the INIT.txt file:

You can set the maximum population of your fortress here.  Keep in mind that your population must be at least 80 to get a king and 100 to obtain the current game features.

[POPULATION_CAP:20]

This allows you to control the number of babies+children in your fortress.  The first number is an absolute cap on the number of babies+children.  The second is a percentage of the current number of adults in your fortress (the default is the essentially meaningless 1000% here).  The lower number is used as the cap.  The cap only prevents further pregancies, so migrant children, multiple births and existing pregnancies from old saves can still push you over the cap.  Setting either number to zero will disallow pregnancies in the fortress.

[BABY_CHILD_CAP:0:0]


this should limit my population to 20 dwarves right? but so far i keep getting immigrants past 20. is there a way to fix this?

I think that the population limit is the point at which migrant waves stop.  So with a limit of 20, you should get enough waves to push you over 20, and then they should stop.

You will get one or two waves of migrants after you hit the limit (until the migrant numbes get re-calculated, which i think happens once per year, when the dwarven caravan bring news of your wealth back home).
It will stop eventually.

Also, setting the child cap to zero does not stop immigrant children from coming.

I don't know if this is still true, but in older versions, nobles and children did not count toward your population cap.
