0001120: "No seeds available for this location" when using seeds left at reclaimed site
Built small colony, had farm plots above the ground.
Conquered by goblins.
Reclaimed fortress.
Aboveground farms (left by previous inhabitants) still have all the plants growing on them. Farm management interface is available (f.e., I'm able to command it to fallow), but it keeps writing "No seeds available for this location". The seeds are stockpiled nearby.
Building new farms around won't help - they also refuse to see seeds.
I have 4 save directories:
(1) Original global - pre-embark
(2) First colony - not yet conquered (http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=2097 [^])
(3) After being conquered - pre-embark
(4) Reclaim-embarked (http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=2095 [^])

(2) Ok
(4) "No seeds available for this location"
All invaders are friendly, no hostile units upon reclaim-embark.
When prepared my group to reclaim (prepare for the journey), the preparation was no different from normal embark.

Did you UNFORBID the seeds?

Just downloaded the save and took a look at it
I think this is a re-occurrence of the old 'cannot plant seeds bought from traders bug.' I set all the dwarfs to gather plants, and as they gathered plant types, those types became highlighted for planting.
They were not forbidden, BTW

2010-04-13 20:55   
Hmm, maybe you have a reclaim bug here? Given that you said it happened AFTER reclaim. Although you should check if they are forbidden.
2010-04-13 21:50   
Only a duplicate in principal; the referenced traders bug is as old as Z-levels and not on the tracker yet. Unless I missed another report while searching?

No, not forbidden, I reclaimed, hauled and stockpiled them nearby.

BTW, I have modded plants to have longer GROWDUR: + 1000. So that you don't get surprised why they grow so long time.
But that's not connected to bug matters - I even rechecked with original "plant_standard.txt" in raws - bug persists.

I think I encountered this, but I'm not sure: my above ground farm had not been planted on before the initial fort was conquered, so I can't be sure that it was working to begin with. But in any case, it definitely won't let me plant on it after reclaim. "No seeds available for this location."

Also the farm is on muddied stone rather than soil, but that works, doesn't it?

Edit: Oops, I think I had just had my seeds forbidden still.

I can confirm this bug with unmodded game. I could only plant the seeds I brought, not those that were reclaimed. This is just one of the many reclaim bugs I've encountered.

My guess is this is just another form of 0000863.

Happened to me as well in a fortress lost to thirst due to lack of my paying attention, I reclaimed, unforbid everything, and stood confused when even after deconstructing and reconstructing, the farms are not able to grow anything. Will attempt to harvest shrubs and see if that allows the unforbidden seeds to be used.
