0011120: Contructions on top of walls can only use materials on top of those walls
I have a fortress with a staircase from the surface surrounded by walls. I put up a stair. Six logs were on top of the walls from saplings that grew, so were cut down. I attempted to build a roof. I could only use the logs on top of the walls. I have 700 logs according to my stocks screen.
Build a wall around a open area, then attempt to build a roof. If you have logs on top of the wall, you will only be able to build with those logs. If you don't then you will not be able to build anything.
Really, really annoying. Also my computer is 8 years old.

The game only displays building materials accessible from the build site. The behavior you've described is consistent with an inaccessible area. (Note that an "up stair" is insufficient without a "down stair" on the level above.) If you believe your dwarves should be able to path to the top of the walls, please upload a save demonstrating this problem to DFFD ( http://dffd.bay12games.com/ [^] ) and post a link to it here.

1) Locate the appropriate regionX folder in <dwarf fortress directory>/data/save/
2) Compress the regionX folder into an archive file (.zip, .rar, etc.) using your OS or a utility (like the open source 7-zip)
3) Upload the archive file to DFFD ( http://dffd.bay12games.com/ [^] )
4) Post a link to the DFFD file here
