0001419: Crash upon killing salt titan
So, my military commander ran into battle and after and epic struggle, slashed the beast's head clean off. And then it crashed.

--- actual report ---
Upon severing something (all I had time to see was a white ^2 soaked in red) from a salt titan (I missed the actual description, basically it was composed of salt, had wings and some sort of noble demeanour) the game crashed. shortly beforehand it had toppled a birchen chest and mauled a mountain goat, and gone for a short swim in my moat (murky pool water).
Haven't tried due to the random roll thing.
I didn't save beforehand because I figured I'd be alright, so there's no save I can dump.
crash, megabeast

how many body parts did it have?
did you start this world/fortress in .03?

I ask because I had an epic battle with a salt titan myself.
it had a body and two wings.
my dwarfs cut off the wings in the first couple of combat turns, but were then unable to kill it.
kept cutting off bits of flesh, and it was leaving piles of salt around.
the body was red. but it slowly "pushed" my whole army to death. there were some really high skilled axe, sword, and spear dwarfs in there too. most of them got exhausted before dieing though.

Yeah, started in .03, and it was humanoid bar the two wings.
it could actually be http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=1421 [^] in all honesty.

I guess we'll have to assume it's 0001421, that's about all we have to go on.
2010-04-23 07:08   
Yeah, looks like it. I'm annoyed I didn't get the save with the salt titan though, because I got the announcement about him breaking the birchen chest before the sever occurred, though it was all in quick succession.
ACTUALLY: *gets logs*
The ocean titan Ayilo Ru˜avaetini Theleconibo has come! A gigantic humanoid composed of salt. It has wings and it has a regal bearing.
birchen Chest destroyed by Ayilo Ru˜avaetini Theleconibo, Ocean Titan.

The Ocean Titan charges at The militia commander from behind!

The Ocean Titan attacks The militia commander but He jumps away!

The Ocean Titan misses The militia commander!

The militia commander stabs The Ocean Titan in the upper body with his ðcopper short swordð, breaking away the tissue!

The militia commander stabs The Ocean Titan in the lower body with his ðcopper short swordð and the severed part sails off in an arc!

Is it possible I'm having trouble killing my titian because the game was started in 01 and upgraded? (yes, I copied the raw's into the save folder)
2010-04-23 18:02   
se5a: probably not, some titans are basically just impossible to kill right now. There are a lot of reports of that nature at 0000033.

Marking this one "unable to reproduce." 0000536 may be responsible, but I guess we'll never know.
