|0007395||Dwarf Fortress||Dwarf Mode -- Idle Behavior||public||2014-07-16 14:53||2014-07-17 18:10|
|Priority||normal||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Platform||OS||Windows 7||OS Version|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0007395: Dwarf appears to be floating/ hovering/ flying/ climbing the wall laterally|
|Description||Centered on Save.|
One dwarf appears to be climbing laterally across a wall, east to west.
He moves slowly as though it is difficult, but he is crossing a space 1Z level above a downward slope (effectively 2 Z levels above normal ground traveling level)
|Additional Information||zipping save to upload. waiting on account activation at http://dffd.wimbli.com [^]|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Might be related: In adventure mode, NPCs often try to grab (climb?) a wall, followed by massive "NPC lost hold of the wall" spam.|
Might this just be intended behavior now?
Climbing is a thing, after all. Your dwarf mighta just figured it out.
Fine if dwarves do it. Less fine if goblins work out how.
They don't just climb walls laterally; they will also go straight up. To demonstrate this, dig a pit by designating ramps in a section, and then another layer below that. Once that's all been dug out remove the slopes. The dwarves will ponder being stuck in the pit for a while, then will just scale the walls and climb right out.
I was going to test this with goblins, but there's a problem with them not being pittable at the moment.

Well, all creatures are supposed to be able to climb to a degree, so...
You don't need pitting to test it - it can be done with cage release at the bottom of a locked room with a suitable opening in the ceiling.
|I look forwards to the day when we can put weapon traps on walls, if that's ever going to happen. :D|
Good point Amena - I was just wondering idly about goblins there, but I happened to have a spare goblin or two lying around, so I tried this out.
Turns out goblins do climb out of pits. That probably warrants a bug report of its own!
