      Set them to a ranged squad, limit their movement with z-levels and give them ammo

      This is what the fortress itself is for.

      Start a fortress in an evil biome with acid rain. There’s your reason to make a sprinklers / waterfall

      People forget that the dwarfs are supposed to be semi-autonomous, like the sims are with free-will turned on. They’re going to break from your orders sometimes

  2. I’ve been playing DF for 11 years now and I’ve mastered most of it in a year. Nothing notable has changed since DF2012. The biggest problem of DF is Tarn himself. He is becoming more autistic with passing time and he is getting worse at programming the game too. Zach is the creative brother and he is barely involved in game design anymore, so Tarn the Autist is left to do everything by himself. If he were smarter, he would have employed people to reprogram the game and unscramble his spaghetti code, but his pride won’t let him. Dwarf Fortress was a great game for its time, but it has outlived its usefulness.
    It’s time to move on.
