0002706: Marksdwarves won't get quivers or ammo
See save here: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=2674 [^]

My marksdwarf squad picks up their crossbows, but won't go get quivers from the stockpile (they are in bins) or ammo (also in bins).

I mention the bins because I heard on the forums that there are problems with marksdwarves getting their ammo from a bin, but couldn't find an open bug for it.

I had tried designating stockpiles without bins to take from the existing ones, but no one hauled stuff over. (The next step would be to delete the binned stockpiles, have dwarves haul quivers & ammo over to the no-bin stockpile, and see if they will get their equipment then...)

fixed in .25 or before

deleting squad and creating new [in .25] fixed problem in attached save

2012-03-28 07:50   
Okay. Please reopen this report or PM me on the forums if it's still around (if squads have to be deleted and recreated even in recent saves, it's probably still an issue).

Uploading save from 34.02+ may be a good idea

I get this bug in the 0.34.11 version. Notice I have never even played DF in older versions.

Reminder sent to: Kiloku

Please upload a save demonstrating the problem in the current version to http://dffd.wimbli.com [^] and post a link to it here.

Sorry to double post, but I noticed there were no downloads on the file. When can I expect someone to look into that bug?
2013-09-22 17:23   
Hopefully Toady will be fixing some equipment bugs after the upcoming release.

Is this still a problem in v0.40.24?
2015-03-11 01:34   
Not sure about the quivers part, but the ammo in bins can't be picked up bug was present in 40.19, haven't tested in .24 though.

Playing in 40.24. I've been getting a lot of issues involving marksdwarves failing to pickup ammunition (spam of equipment mismatch messages) and pretty much all of the bolts they aren't using are in bins in stockpiles, so it appears its still a problem. That said, its possible some other issue is contributing involving quivers or finished good stockpiles.

It's 2020 and this is still an issue: Hunters don't pick up ammo from bins in an ammo stockpile. Also, it is not confined to Windows; I'm seeing it on Linux.
