Summary0001662: I have not received an Immigrant in years.
DescriptionI received one immigration, Very early in the game.

Since then I have seen no one else. This is weird because in my Civ menu I can see that there is another dwarf fort near by, though I have no ability to contact them.

I have built a paved road to the edge, to my entrance and trading post. But no one ever comes. I have accumulated a bit of wealth, have many masterpieces. The Dwarves are well fed, and seem to be in a good mood.

But my pop is stuck at 15 or so, and all the children always get stolen by goblins. So I have had no new people.

I have not picked nobles for ever slot (because there are two few their to spare).

Is this normal or is something going on?

First guess, the goblins are intercepting them on the way to your fort.

I had a caravan not show up. Soon thereafter, my first invaders -- 16 goblins arrived, resulting in mass "fun".

I played like 6-7 years (.03).. I had same problem, at first I got few migrant waves which ended up totaling my dwarfs to around 15-20.. Then the migrants stopped, I never saw an caravan - neither did I ever saw any hostiles.. My few dwarves lived happily doing their thing, ever expanding their fortress and breeding..

Probably duplicate of 0000545

I am pretty sure it is that same as 0000545 after reading it.

From what I understand, there is no way to tell whether you will ever get another Immigrant after the game has already started.

But if I understand right, you must start the generated world as adventurer and see if you can pick a dwarf, or you must use legends to see if the dwarf city is killed.

Do I have this right? Having immigrants or not is a big part of the game, and I would expect a person to be able to find out before game as easy as if there was an Aquifor on the map.

You can also use Legends mode to check your civ status. To bypass the "in game" bit, you can just make a copy of your save game, and abandon one of the copies to get to the other game modes.

Same problem over here. Plenty of ambushes and childnappers, but no dwarven immigrants whatsoever. It's really getting sort of boring.

Without save + probably home civ is dead (what just happened in this save: [^] ).

Between possible civ death and all the changes to migrants that have since occurred, this is probably no longer relevant.
