0008151: 58 magma crabs spawn in magma sea
I upgraded this fort from 40.09 to 40.10. This caused my critters in the caves to leave the treetops they were stuck in, and allowed new wildlife to enter the map.

In the magma sea, 58 mudcrabs spawned, which seems a bit much.

Or.. they were already there, but frozen in place somewhere outside the discovered part of the magma sea, breeding for the past 10+ years, and the update unfroze them, allowing them to enter explored territory and the Unit list.

If the former, 58 magma crabs spawning at once seems a bit much / buggy. If the latter, ah well, I guess that won't be happening again to games started in 40.10 onwards. You can find the save at: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=9511 [^]
