0000305: Tantrumer building destruction not announced
Had a furnace operator tantrum. Then received a 'masterwork defacement' message regarding my architect. Noticed a magma smelter had been destroyed by the furnace op (and a crime reported in Justice). However there was no announcement of the building being destroyed.
- Let a tantrumer destroy a building
announcements, insanity

ironically, artifacts are now boldly announced, with a popup window.

I don't think it announces a dwarf going berserk either, which is one thing I actually think is worthy of a popup window.

I've seen an announcement about the destruction of a (constructed) coffer by a tantruming dwarf, so at least some subset are announced.

I witnessed the destruction of a farm, and quickly verified with a search of the announcements page that it was not listed at all. It's a true example of irony when the insane starving dwarves riot and destroy the farm. ;)

my destruction of a trade depot was announced.

Reminder sent to: d4ftfad

Are you able to provide a save just before a dwarf in a tantrum state destroys a building that doesn't show an announcement?

I've had several dwarfs throw a tantrum and destroy buildings (as well as creature building destroyers) and it always reported the destruction.

With no reply from the OP, I'm marking this as just an oversight on the OP's part or some other change may have fixed it since the original post.

If this is an announcement that players would like control over, please post a suggestion in the forum:

to have the announcement's control placed in the /data/init/announcements.txt file.
