|0011157||Dwarf Fortress||Dwarf Mode -- Environment||public||2019-10-03 12:29||2019-10-06 09:29|
|Priority||normal||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Platform||Personal Computer||OS||Windows 10 PC||OS Version||10.0.18362|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0011157: Maximum number of trees seems absolutely unrelated to the initial amount of trees on the map.|
|Description||Basically I embarked on a Savage Temperate Sand Desert biome with Scarce trees and within three years it became more forested than most Heavily Forested regions are on embark. I don't think that's the intended behavior.|
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Embark on a Sand Desert (or, most likely, any desert with soil)|
2. Wait unthil trees start to appear
3. Trees will cover everything
|Additional Information||Might be just the lack of a feature and not a "true" bug.|
Embark biome is a pure unmixed Savage Temperate Sand Desert, no river or ocean.
Caverns have been breached before I noticed this.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
It's a lack of features. As far as I've been able to determine (a thread a number of years ago), the criterion for whether a sapling can mature to a tree is that there is nothing blocking its access to the sky (above ground trees only, naturally), and that there is nothing blocking access to the tile above (i.e. a 2Z headroom [and bridges don't count: trees readily grow through those on maturation]).
The biome (or possibly the Vegetation parameter) determines the rate at which saplings are spawned, and so the rate at which the junglification happens. I don't know if there is any variation in sapling withering rates between biomes.
Stockpiles block maturation for as long as they cover a sapling, with withering/maturation determination happening shortly after the stockpile is removed.
