Summary0001160: Chitin is now useless?
DescriptionA Forgotten Beast arrived at my fort, which I killed and Butchered, producing a unit of Chitin which was hauled to the Refuse pile. However the 'Tan a Hide' job did not start automatically, and when I attempted to start it manually from the workshop, the list of tasks was blank.

You don't have to tan it anymore, but I'm not sure you can still make armor out of it, either.

I also had this happen. It stayed in my refuse pile that had body parts switched off, rather than being hauled to my body parts pile. That means it was somehow flagged as refuse or remains rather than body parts.

I am fairly certain you can make things out of GCS chitin still so this seems...inconsistent if not a bug.

Also a little odd, the forgotten beast was listed as having "four large horns" which never showed up anywhere at all; slightly disappointing.

Reminder sent to: Ves

Was your tannery in a burrow? If so, this is 0000434.

I checked the save, and it wasn't in a burrow. Then I loaded up a more recent save which I had a caged GCS in and killed it, but I couldn't do anything with that chitin either.

It may be worth noting that, in material_template_default.txt, chitin's template uses bone's material properties. Maybe chitin is intended to be a hard material now? Some varieties of chitin are hard.

Also, the chitin template lacks the leather tag, or any other tags that would imply any use of chitin to make stuff out of.

"Also, the chitin template lacks the leather tag, or any other tags that would imply any use of chitin to make stuff out of. " - so it is not a bug
