Summary0007860: Ambush alert but game focus on a very deep and completly unexplored place
Descriptionsave here : [^]

Press a to see the list of message , select one of the 2 ambushes warning and press z to zoom to location.

DF will zoom to some very deep place (depth 128 ! ) that is completely unexplored as i'm very far to have dug down such level.

I sent my military (there are only the 7 starting dwarves) to station all over the surface without finding anyone.

Is your fortress a reclaim?

Yes, it's a reclaim of a fortress i mistakenly abandonned instead of retiring , choosing the wrong option.
But a fortress i designed myself, not one of the randomly generated one that can go deep
looks really the same case as the one you linked except the ruins were mine

Had this same thing happen in 40.10 with DF starter pack on windows 7 64bit. created a new world, embarked and was immediately slaughtered by alligators. did a reclaim and shortly after arriving, I received the ambush message and the view was switched to deep under ground. Units page showed only wild animals, no hostile units. Have a save file, but no where to host it yet.

I've also had this problem in 0.40.18 (although, I think the map was created in 0.40.14).

Same circunstances:
* Reclaimed fortress.
* Warning came from deep underground.

It was basically a "virgin map". I have barely struck the earth when I was stopped by the yet unpierced aquifer, so I'm pretty sure I've never had the chance to get down there.

I can confirm this bug has happened to me also on a reclaimed fortress.

Happened several times on 40.24 to my reclaimed fortresses too.

Issue still persists as of 43.05. Reclaimed fortress hadn't dug below z-36, got ambush alerts at z-76 five times in rapid sucession

I had an issue similar to this. An alert claimed that a long-lost dwarf's corpse had been found, but the alert pointed at an unexplored tile several z-levels below the surface. The fortress had been reclaimed.

Confirmed this has happened in 44.02.

Still occurring in 44.12, my 3rd reclaim of a site and it's occasionally spamming me with "ambushes" at Z 48-50 while I haven't been down 1 Z level yet. As a sidenote I am noticing the lack of some named zombie parts, maybe they somehow moved to the caverns?

So this occurs in 47.02

I figured out the issue though. It was caused by hostile rodent men triggering the ambushes. I guess cause I opened the caverns on my first run of the fortress

although what is weird is that it keeps repeating ambush alerts. I guess cause animal tribes are bugged

Repeated ambush alerts is the way ambushes act in general right now. Every new couple of critters revealed is "an ambush, curse them!". Since goblins don't ambush right now it's not seen that often.
