0002713: Massive aboveground adamantine spire, dwarves ignore designations, sometimes crashes
http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=61507 [^]

Read that thread. I generated that world. Embarked at that location. Gawked at that precious adamantine. The dwarves will build buildings, and work in them, and move things into stockpiles, but they won't pick up tools and start digging or cutting trees. The spire goes unmolested. :(
I've used my own worldgen info the re-make the world. The cave-in does not happen and the spire does not exist. :(
This is my first report. Sorry if it's not up to par.
Adamantine, crash, mining

Did you enable the appropriate labors on the dwarves? Are the tools unforbidden, accessible, and not being claimed as weapons by members of the military?
2010-07-15 20:28   
appropriate labors enabled, tools not forbidden. This is a fresh embark, the 7 starting dwarves. The only thing that's been accomplished is the forging of 4 picks and 1 axe, the dismantling of the workshops used for said tasks, and the movement of some items from the wagon to a stockpile (for testing to see if dwarves would do that).

There is a link to the save file in the original post of that thread.

In retrospect, this probably isn't a "major" issue; it's more of a one-off worldgen anomaly that even I have been unable to reproduce.

Did I mention the part about how the open z-levels keep ascending far beyond the "highest feature +15" mark? There's over 5000 z-levels there, 3000+ of them completely empty.

When I download, run this save, and unpause it only takes a second or so until it just crashes. That's on version 0.31.10, Windows 7 64bit. I haven't had problems running any other fort.

The fact that it's not even reproducible on your own computer with the same seeds suggests hardware issues to me. Bad memory, or even a cosmic ray striking your RAM/CPU at just the right instant (1 in a trillion chance, at least, unless you live near a coal mine or coal-fired power plant.)

0003733 This certainly isn't a one off issue, it's happening to a lot of people. My best guess from reading these is it has something to do with deep pits causing cavern layers to intermingle since we often have really weird sites or a cave in on embark.

I got a situation of embarking somewhere at level +1684 or about. Can't tell more about it since it crashed immediately, presumably due to going out of the 2G memory address space. Happened twice, test-embarked the second time only to see if it would work, the second time lasted long enough to get the scene on screen...
