Summary0001300: Can't specify wood, bone or shell items in uniforms
DescriptionWhen setting up uniforms, I have the options:
- any material
- leather
- metal
- iron [.. and other individual metals]
- toad leather [.. and other leathers]

...but no bone or shell, even for items which may be made from bone or shell (like greaves, gauntlets, etc). I have stacks of excellent elephant-bone armor, and the squad is supposed to wear "greaves:anymaterial" (and gauntlets, and helms, etc.) but the dwarves are going without, or in the case of helms, choosing inferior leathers.
Steps To ReproduceCreate 4 full sets of bone or shell armor.
Place bone and shell armor in an armor stockpile within the barracks.
Wait 1 month for any armor-related hauling tasks to complete.
(z)tocks screen, forbid all non-bone greaves and gauntlets.

(m)ilitary screen, u(n)iforms, right column: create a uniform that uses "any material" greaves and/or gauntlets.

Activate the squad with this uniform.
Observe that they do not put on the bone items.
Tagsbone, equip, Intentional/Expected?, shell

Seems fixed in 0.31.03, but still no option to specify "Bone and Shell" as a material choice.

If the ability to specify "bone and shell" is the only part that's missing, I'll go ahead and close this, because that's well into the territory of the Suggestions forum. [^]

If it turns out there's still an actual bug here, feel free to reopen this issue.

It seems this was not properly closed so it doesn't need to be reopened. While "Bones and shell" together is for suggestions, I think missing at least separate "Bone" and "Shell" is a bug.

With tons of wood, leather and metal options, other armor-able materials should be included too. The better if also all those subtypes ("pond turtle shell", "oyster shell", "snail shell"...) are included.

Yeah, I reopened this years ago after reconsidering and coming to the same conclusion.

This is almost definitely unintentional, and if it is, it should still be changed. My evil-biome fortress has no metal or wood, and uses leather and bones for armor. When I tell them to wear anything, they just go with xdingo leather robesx and stuff like that.

Tested in 43.03. that it is possible to equip shell armor but still impossible to specify in uniform.
I would use this to set a light rigid uniform for all non-military personnel.
