Summary0011810: sum of casts maximum BODY_SIZE prevents wood chopping
DescriptionIf I assign BODY_SIZE to all the castes and the sum of the caste's BODY_SIZE maximum values is <=86000 then *no* dwarf (regardless of age or caste) will be able to chop down trees.

So even if one caste has a [BODY_SIZE:*:*:72427] no dwarf from this cast will be able to chop wood, because the other caste has a [BODY_SIZE:*:*:12573], because 72427+12573<=86000.

If the sum of BODY_SIZE's is in the range [86001,86008] then wood chopping ability is undefined, sometimes it works, sometimes it does not.

If the sum of BODY_SIZE's is >=86009 then wood chopping apparently always works, even if one caste has a [BODY_SIZE:*:*:10000].

Have not tried with more than two castes, it may be an average as opposed to a sum.

     These body modifiers give individual dwarves different characteristics. In the case of HEIGHT, BROADNESS and LENGTH, the modifier is also a percentage change to the BODY_SIZE of the individual creature. The seven numbers afterward give a distribution of ranges. Each interval has an equal chance of occurring.

Battleaxes have a cm3 size requirement (like all weapons), typically in modding if you were to use a smaller race you would apply smaller weapons and tools, like small picks and hatchets to accomodate them.

The modifiers do have a total effect on actual representative cm3 (rule of thumb while modding: x and y chart, length is x horizontal, height is y vertical and broadness is a sloped upward climbing x diagonal) but it'd be right to say its a bug if it isn't computed to the actual mean size of the creature.
