|Description||Firstly, i want to say, that i know about current military stuff (it's bugged). But since it may be useful, i will still post, though i know, that no fix will be given to me.|
The Pri/Assignments Field is pretty complicated thing. It doesn't give the function to delete assigned items. You can do it only via equipment - View screen by adding that same item (which is really difficult since i have 10+ steel mail shirts, though i found a way - forbid every mail shirt in stocks screen then unforbid the one you want dwarf to wear and then pick it).
Next, is that sometimes dwarf just doesn't want to pick an item. Mostly, i think, i found out the reason. For example, i assigned left and right steel gauntlets, but dwarf picked only left one. Why? Because 10 years ago, when his initial clothes were still in on piece (not tattered), the Pri/Assignments system assigned right pig fail glove. But now that glove is gone, i just can't dessignate it. So the dwarf still think, that he needs that right glove, and he won't wear the right gauntlet until he finds that glove or it will be deleted from Pri/Assignments... It's a very bad bug, since there are a lot of clothes (that are already dissappeared) assigned.
I checked it twice. When i assigned steel helmet, and dwarf just won't move, i checked his Pri/Assignments window and found out that he had iron helm assigned. I found it, unforbid, then deleted it from Pri/Assignments window - and MIRACLE - he just go and picks up the steel helmet.
So far i just want to ask a question - will various bugs concerning military equipment will be fixed in nearest future? And will the interface change somehow, to make it less complicated. Cause as it is now, most of players can't do a thing. As for me, i am just really glad, that my dwarf wore everything but right gauntlet and second high boot. At least he won't go into battle naked :)
