|0002093||Dwarf Fortress||Dwarf Mode -- Idle Behavior||public||2010-05-28 12:12||2012-04-08 10:54|
|Platform||PC||OS||Windows||OS Version||Windows 7 64bit|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0002093: Dwarf floating/flying in midair after channeling|
|Description||This is a fortress from 0.31.01, brought to 0.31.03, and then to 0.31.04.|
After bringing the fortress to 0.31.04, everything was working normally, disconsidering the bugs already known.
Then, I began digging channels in front of my fortress, for defensive purposes.
Probably while digging, one of my miners stoped working, and just kept doing nothing, there in the hole.
Then, I noticed he was inaccesible through the 'v' key, as if he was dead. But looking at him with 'k', I saw he was not dead, and could (can) view his 'profile' hitting enter. According to it, he's not even injured.
He's not dead, no dwarves went to take his body, yet he doens't move in anyway and is showing 'inside' a blue tile(??).
|Steps To Reproduce||?|
|Tags||catatonic, dig, Dwarf|
|The dwarf is not stuck, and could easily get out of the hole, if not 'catatonic'.|
yet he doens't move in anyway and is showing 'inside' a blue tile(??).
That's the key part. He's actually floating in midair. This bug has been around for a long time, although I couldn't find any other entries in the tracker.
# 000851 ▣ (http://www.bay12games.com/forum/index.php?topic=9855.0 [^]) [projectiles] (Report) saving while a unit is falling stops the unit in midair
Here are a couple other reports:
It would be helpful if you upload your save to http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^]
|Ok. But what exactly should I upload? The whole 'save' or only the 'region' folder?|
|Just the region folder. Thanks!|
|Additionally, I tried assigning him as squad leader, to see if that would make him move, but it didn't work. Do you think there's some way to recover him?|
|There's no way to recover him except with a memory hacking tool. In 40d, there was a tool called Dwarf Companion, but AFAIK it's not available for the new version. There's probably no way at present :(|
Hm... Well, perhaps I'll sue an old save, then, prior to this bug.
Anyway, here's the save:
Just to update this a bit further, I've discovered a condition that causes this. If you save the game at the exact moment that the dwarf finishes carving the channel it saves his state as a "projectile", the state associated with creatures that are being thrown around. When the game reloads it doesn't resume the act of falling down and so the dwarf stays suspended in mid air for eternity.
At the moment, Runesmith gives us the ability to clear the projectile flag, thus rescuing the dwarf.
