0000206: turtle shell crafts not producing
Production of turtle shell crafts in the craftdwarves' workshop yields no product, but does increase skill. Also, there is no product for turtle shell leggings, gauntlets, and helm.
Produce shell crafts using turtle shells in the craftdwarf's workshop.
Decorating with turtle shell appears to work fine. I have not tested shell crafts with other work materials, so I don't know if all shell crafts fail to produce.

Forgot to mention - I am also using a graphics pakset, though I don't believe it has *any* gameplay changes. Somebody will surely correct me if I'm wrong.
2010-04-02 19:59   
Yeah same thing happened to me and I'm running with no mods at all.
Dwarf will take shell to workshop and level till Legendary and nothing else will happen at all.

However decorate with shell works as expected.
2010-04-06 00:42   
This is happening to me too. I'm not running any graphical mods, though I am using the accelerator dll -- removing that doesn't change anything, though. And oddly, I've only had this issue in one fortress so far; earlier ones have had no trouble making shell items.

The dwarfs do seem to think they're successfully making the items, what with gaining skill, and if I line up several shell craft tasks and mark them to repeat, they'll cycle through. They appear to just be fiddling around with the shell a bit and calling it a day.

Same problem here.
Making crafts, gauntles and greaves from shells doesn't work.
Dwarf brings shells to the workshop, works for a moment, then the task gets completed (disappears from the list without any cancellation message) but nothing is produced, and the shell stays untouched.

Decorating with shell seems to work fine, making stuff from bone is ok too.

Same problem etc etc, messed up my first trade plans. Refuse piles has tons and tons of shell. Time to start decorating

edit// also you cant make any shell helmets, leggings or armor

2010-04-11 16:26   
Yeah. I ask for a pile of shell greaves, all I get is a legendary failure. Is anybody not getting this, or is it universal?
2010-04-14 20:34   
I set my dwarf to make shell crafts today on repeat, then when the caravan came I had none. At first I thought that the dwarf was staying in the shop indefinitely and not completing the task, but I guess it makes sense that this could be happening to..
2010-05-12 22:10   
Same here. Multiple fortresses, mussel and turtle shells. XP up, gets new shells periodically, no product. Also, dwarves don't seem to recognize shells for refuse hauling. (Custom or regular stockpile)

I didn't get this bug in my last fortress(0.31.04), but I've got it with the current one. The time it worked I had the queue set to this: totem -> bone crafts -> shell crafts. He made the totem and one bone item just fine. That's when it got a bit strange. There were a few more bones, but he started making shell items after the first bone item. Every now and then he would alternate between shell and bone, but always making an item after each task. Both were set to repeat.
2010-06-09 16:30   
Still having this problem as of 31.06. Very saddening, as it's a coastal fort.

I have uploaded a save here:

http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=2517 [^]

If run on the default size screen one might need to press down arrow once or twice to see the (professional) bone carver (litast e.) in process of making shell crafts. About 10 seconds after unpausing the game, he quits for no reason - in fact his status turns to "no job", rather than drink, sleep, etc. The turle shell remains in the workshop.

If the make shell crafts job is set to repeat, the guy will stay in the workshop working on the same shell until he becomes hungry or tired or such. I suppose when job ends he immediately begins another using the same shell.

I also have had this issue. I only have mussels and I haven't tried to decorate with them.
2010-07-13 02:03   
This is happening to me in 31.10 with a newly generated world. Shell Crafts made with mussel shells result in no product whatsoever.

Turtle shell crafts/helms/etc. should all be fixed up for 0.31.11 now.
