|0005308||Dwarf Fortress||World Generation -- General||public||2012-02-19 12:02||2012-03-05 12:49|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0005308: Unable to find Iron and Flux in the same area.|
|Description||A bug dating back multiple versions; when you build the world, it becomes extremely difficult to find iron and flux in the same embark area in the map. This leads to a lack of steel, leading in turn to lots of Fun.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Generate a world, try to find a decent embark spot with iron and flux (at 2x2 area)|
|Additional Information||This also involves another bug, in which the Finder incorrectly marks areas that have no flux, even though you set it to only mark areas with flux.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|

Not really a bug - regions like that are supposed to be uncommon.
You can increase your chances of finding them by boosting the mineral frequency - if your flux layer is sedimentary (Chalk, Dolomite, or Limestone) and contains minerals, then it's possible that one of those minerals will be Magnetite, an iron ore that occurs in large clusters.
|2x2 is also an unusually small embark area. This might be a valid complaint if it was 3x3.|
Ya, only tried once with 3x3; there was iron but no flux (despite it saying in the world finder that there was flux).
It is POSSIBLE to find them in the same area, just extremely rare. I've maxed mineral frequency, used finder, etc.
|Rarity is okay. I'm going to chalk up the truly buggy aspects of this report to 0002440. It's hard to make any balance calls until that's fixed.|
