0007098: Dwarves can have a preference for random/divine metal
Dwarves can have a preference for metals that don't normally appear in the game, like "blistered metal", "glowing metal" and such. In the 0.40.01 announcement thread someone did a memory-to-raw extraction and found that these types of metals had the [DIVINE] tag, so presumably these are metals that the various randomly generated gods use. I'd think this sort of thing would fall into the same category as the "dwarf liking slade" bug that got fixed.
No tags attached.

i haven't seen any updated information for 40, but i noticed when i was setting parameters for a custom world, GENERATE DIVINE MATERIALS is an option... which implies to me that it is possible to acquire divine materials. (i dont know this for sure)
2014-07-26 07:21   
@newjrmint15 It is only possible to acquire these materials in adventure mode, as far as I know.
2014-07-29 12:17   
This happens very often, actually.
2014-09-01 14:45   
Reopened because this still affects cloth preferences, e.g. "flowing fabric".
