That does add to the complexity though, admittedly. Especially if it entails more selective "some weapons yes, others no" things of that nature.

Also, it makes it easier to allow any stone, but is that a good or a bad thing? o3o

I think so, but then again, I could be wrong.

IMO, the majority of the complexity of DF is player created and comes mostly from trying to build dwarfy shit. Since KK removes most of the resources with which to do that (mechanisms, metalworking, etc.), a little re-added complexity wouldn't hurt, at least in this sense where it's not bloaty and fits with the theme.
Gone. Cheers guys.

Hmm, maybe. Oh joy, one other complication I've discovered. Seems that added gem arrows means they have to count as metal too, which means embark options gets filled with gem crafts and mugs. :V

I'm not sure what you mean. The crafting itself just takes rough gems, with reaction_class "unsharpened" so... >_>

It seems to be a ide effect of combining IS_METAL with ITEMS_HARD, actually.

I might also be doing something in Adventurecraft, mainly via trying to make megabeast-tier materials less common by making semimegabeasts use the tier-2 body materials. This also means I'd need to add another source of megabeast-tier chitin and shell, because mi-gos and gargoyles are semi-megabeasts.

I do have an idea though. As well as some possiblities for making a lesser tier of monsters, using the NIGHT_CREATURE_HUNTER token. Also? There might be sandworms.

I like sandworms.

Would it be possible for me to simply drag and drop the files for adventure craft into DAII to merge the mods (for my own use), or would I have to do some real raw modification? DAII has it's own adventure crafting stuff, but it is no where near as good as adventurecraft.

Depends pretty much on what files are being edited by DAII. Mixing and matching tends to be a pain in the ass, because of how many different things any given mod might overwrite. D:

Welp. Time to necropost the shit outta this, because I got an idea.

In adventurecraft, I'm considering replacing the generated instruments with generic ones. Reason is, much like writing material in vanilla, instruments can sometimes be hard to get ahold of, especially when you want a specific one your musical styles require. They also are civilization specific, with no way to at least adapt a comparable instrument to another musical style, even at a penalty. Lastly (not highly important), generated names are not good for easily telling what type of instrument it is, which is a minor annoyance.

My idea is that you can still use the old [INSTRUMENT:X] entity token to give civilizations generic instruments, based off real-world ones. This would allow my to add crafting recipes for them. It'd also allow the possibility of an instrument being available to multiple entities, allowing a musician that learns a foreign style to potentially play them.
