|0009151||Dwarf Fortress||Adventure Mode -- Character Creation||public||2015-12-02 03:41||2016-05-13 06:16|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0009151: Outsiders no longer exist, worlds unplayable if no civilizations generated|
|Description||The new tweaks to entities are interesting, but it had the unfortunate effect of removing the pre-existing outsider entity token. Given the expansions to civilizations, this is normally a good thing.|
However, this token still retained a use. If a world is intentionally created (like say, the classic monster island worldgen), it used to be that you could still play as an outsider and thus explore. Not so anymore.
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Create a world using custom settings.|
2. Specify 0 as the number of civilizations, and set "playable civilization required" to no.
3. Start that world and enjoy skipping straight to legends mode.

Well. I rather quickly found an inexplicable workaround for this.
If you add the standard adventure-playable [ALL_MAIN_POPS_CONTROLLABLE] token to a [LAYER_LINKED] entity (like the subterranean animal peoples), a HUMAN outsider option will be retained even on a world with no civilizations generated.
Which would be one of those sheer WTF fixes that I didn't expect. Leave it to me to find the weird bugs only once I start modding. ;w;
|Technically needs a rename, as I'd derped up and hadn't noticed that outsiders still exist. The "no more Monster Islands" thing is still a...well, thing. :V|
