|0002984||Dwarf Fortress||Dwarf Mode -- Interface, Announcements: Message Spam||public||2010-08-08 20:52||2014-07-17 07:30|
|Status||resolved||Resolution||no change required|
|Platform||OS||Windows XP||OS Version|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0002984: Mass reports of minerals and gems found in cavern|
|Description||When a cavern is discovered and mining begins, there are intermittent bursts of announcements listing some (around a dozen) of the notable mineable materials that can be seen throughout the cavern (all levels). It seems to make the announcements every time a single tile is mined out.|
There are sometimes repeat announcements of minerals (possibly for different veins?).
|Steps To Reproduce||Doesn't happen immediately upon discovery of cavern. I start mining the caverns from the top down (channeling out the ceiling above rock columns).|
|Additional Information||To my recollection, it doesn't happen on a new map with exposed gems on the surface, only in caverns.|
|A thought: perhaps this is due to new sections of the cavern being revealed?|
You're exactly right with your note.
When you breach the cavern, the game starts tracking line-of-sight. You should have gotten dozens of announcements about minerals once it was first revealed, although it probably depends on the cavern shape. It gives you announcements for all the gems and such you can currently see, and adds more announcements as you can start to see more.
So probably when you start your mining operation, your dwarves start exploring more and more deeply into the cavern, adding (many) more veins to your knowledge, generating the dozens of announcements.
The repeat announcements are probably repeated veins.
|If this was never an issue, can we close it?|
|Yeah, I think that's reasonable.|
