0003717: Above-ground night creature mounds treated as outdoors
The various above-ground soil mounds which house night creatures seem to be treated as being outdoors in Adventurer mode - you can tell what time of day it is from inside, visibility/lighting is consistent with that of outdoors (i.e. everything turns teal at night), and they get filled with snow during the winter.

I have not yet attempted to embark on top of one of these mounds to see what the loo(k) cursor indicates.
No tags attached.

I've been in plenty of lairs that acted like underground areas -- are the mounds distinct?

Yes, it's specifically the above-ground mounds with doors. If they're dug into the side of a hill, they're properly treated as underground.

Furthermore, not only are the floors inside covered with snow, but the walls are also snowy, something which otherwise never happens.

this happens with hillocks.
