0003286: Dwarf Villages fill most available space
I just got through generating a new world on 0.31.13, with standard parameters. I found seven separate dwarven civilizations, and it seemed like more than 3/4 of the reasonable mountain-edge area for new forts was already filled by huge 12x12 or larger dwarven villages. They were so numerous, they were stacked one next to another in huge chains and clusters along the mountainsides. I was hard-pressed to find a decent starting location that wasn't right on top of one or more villages, or in an inhospitable location like along the glacier or in a desert.
Create a new world with standard worldgen parameters.

This looks like a specific case of 0003230, if not an outright duplicate.
