0005430: two more necromancy bugs
re-killed zombies are reanimated as "(race) corpse corpse" and attack the rest of your zombies and you, and if you try and kill them all your zombies will stop seeing you as a companion.

having a large amount of zombie companions for some reason displaces HFS, i had 244 zombies and got attacked by 3 clowns when i left travel that then destroyed my whole army and myself.
reanimate a body, kill it, re-reanimate it
this one is an !ALWAYS!
unless you travel from where the body was killed and return.

reanimate ALL the bodies, travel for a wile, leave travel
seems theres a high chance of a clown chasin you down when you leave travel with 200+ zombies.
this one is more of a !RANDOM!.
i'll get a save where i have a large amount of zombies following me and upload it into dffd in a sec and post it in the comments, just gotta go raise some dead.

i wasn't sure what to set the category to so i set it to reactions (due to it having to do with necromancy) feel free to change it if you see fit.

you should be able to test both of the bugs with this save file actually.

oops forgot the // in the link

well you should be able to as long as you can deal with the HFS :S

i did search and how is having a zombie army displacing HFS to the surface a duplicate of the 3rd relation, that one has to do with crashing in dwarf mode, this one has to do with adventure mode (zombie) companions for some reason switching places with the HFS

the other 2 relations seem relevant tho sorry about that.

i guess the reason my search came up with nothing related to what i was searching is due to the fact that my searches were "necromancy" and "companions" and the like

Save corruption causes underground and surface stuff to mingle in weird ways i.e. demons on the surface. If demons are actually switching places with your zombies, then there may be some 0002264 in there as well.
