|0000182||Dwarf Fortress||Dwarf Mode -- Military||public||2010-04-02 14:41||2014-09-11 21:06|
|Assigned To||Toady One|
|Platform||AMD Phenom II||OS||Windows Vista||OS Version||SP 2|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.31.11|
|Summary||0000182: Dead dwarves remain in their squads|
|Description||Dwarves killed while members of a squad aren't removed from the squad roster after dying. They appear in both the military window and the squad command pane.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Removed deceased and living members from squad and sent into combat, still occurs. Created new squad, still occurs. Saved and reloaded, restarded computer, reattempted previous, still occurs.|
|Additional Information||Dead dwarves listed in squad roster show no current orders and no relevant skills. Dead dwarves can be removed manually with no further problems. Number of soldiers and number active properly ignores those dwarves.|
|Tags||military screen, squads|
|Seconded. I have also experienced this, even when the entire squad has been killed.|
|Confirmed. It makes replacing lost dwarves difficult.|
|I've noticed that if you compare the number of dwarves that exist in your squads against the number at the top of the military screen you can easily figure out how many dead dwarves you currently have in service.|
Confirmed, this happened to me too.
Not a game-breaking issue, but still a bit annoying.
Figuring out how many dead isn't too bad - working out which ones is the fun part.
(Confirmed; this does get really irritating after a while but can be handled. At the moment, if I experience significant losses I simply rebuild the squad.)
oh agreed, it's still a total pain to strip and reform the squad. I've taken to just stripping everyone out of the squad and reforming it from scratch once I have 2 or more dead.
This however, is a minimum of 40 keystrokes to empty a 10 man squad, plus whatever it takes you to reform the new squad.
Yes, it's so tedious I got annoyed enough to total that up for you. That should tell you something about how much this one annoys me.
|Dead militia commander was a pain, could not remove him, could not replace him with a dwarf already in his squad, so had to bring in a dwarf from another squad to take his place. (yeah I probably could have stuck the dwarf in another squad, exited and come back in and replaced the commander.)|
|What is annoying too is that dwarves already assigned to other squads aren't marked is any way when you select dwarves for new squad.|
|This is a total pain! What I've been doing in the meantime is after every sortie, wiping out the squads and starting over. Of course, that's when I ran into a couple of those nasty military screen crashing bugs.|
well the good news is the military screen crashing bugs pretty much got nuked in 0.31.03. But we still have two seriously annoying bugs for organizing our squads.
- the list for selecting troops includes troops already in squads
- dead dwarves remain in their squads.
between these two bugs, it takes a disturbing number of keystrokes to fix problems if you have more than one squad to deal with.
|Perhaps related to the bug wherein Dwarves stay in military even after being removed?|
|>>> Tilla. I'm not so sure on that one. I think that is because of 0000008. What I think is happening is the new work ethic is refusing to release the dwarf to do a new task. It's a big thorny problem that I think is effecting a lot of things.|
|ugh, really hope this is fixed soon. Just adds to the pain of military management.|
|Still here in .08.|
Should definitely be fixed. Or at least put a dead marker next to a dead dwarf in a squad so we can replenish the ranks.
Removing them if they're dead is probably the best solution. After all, dead dwarves have titles and positions removed upon death. If your broker has an unfortunate accident you have an immediate job opening for a new broker.
|It's a pain in the balls having u charge a battle hardened squad at your attackers only to see theirs only 1 guy in the squad and the rest r already dead, definitely needs a fix.|

|This should be fixed for 0.31.11.|
