Summary0011732: Certain Forge Jobs (Forge Anvil, Forge Breast Plate, Make Statue) Freeze/Crash Game
DescriptionDwarf Fortress permanently freezes (crashes) on completion of any "Forge Anvil", "Forge Breast Plate", or make statue job at a forge. Occurs regardless whether job is assigned via the jobs menu or directly at the Metalsmith's Forge. All other weapons and armor can be forged. Rock statues can be created at Mason's Workshops.

Tested with:

- Iron anvils
- Steel breast plates
- Silver statues
Steps To ReproduceOpen any Dwarf Fortress game or start a new one on Mac Big Sur. Queue up a job to forge an anvil, breast plate, or statue at a Metalsmith's Forge. Can be queued from the jobs menu or directly at the forge. On completion of the job, the game crashes.
Additional InformationTo run Dwarf Fortress on macOS Big Sur (11.0.0 and up), these steps must be taken:

- Open init.txt
- Change PRINT_MODE: 2D to PRINT_MODE: STANDARD (or just about any setting other than 2D)

Forging crash persists across different PRINT_MODE settings tested.

Save uploaded here. Click on forge or assign job from jobs menu to reproduce crash: [^]

Not tested on machines not running Big Sur.

I believe this is a Mac-exclusive thing, as on my Windows game none of these jobs cause crashes.

Right, works fine on my Intel Mac as well, which is not upgraded to Big Sur.

It's either a Big Sur issue, or an M1 Mac issue... from the discussion on one of my other reports, leaning toward M1 Mac issue: [^]
