Cette page regroupe une série de questions posées fréquemment en lien avec l'aspect military de Dwarf Fortress. Vous pouvez également lire les pages Escadrons, Planification et alertes et Équipement.


Mes nains ne s’entraînent pas, ne patrouillent pas ![modifier]

Par défaut, les escouades nouvellement créées sont placées en alerte 'Inactive'. Pour que vos militaires exécutent les ordres que vous souhaitez, vous devez créer de nouveaux niveaux d'alerte ou mettre en place une planification pour un niveau d'alerte existant. À noter que « Inactive » et « Active/Training » ne sont pas les deux seules options disponibles, ce sont simplement les alertes créées par défaut. Elles sont plutôt inutiles si vous ne créez pas davantage d'alertes et de planifications.

Remarque : Si vous souhaitez que l'une de vos escouades s'entraîne, vous devez créer une caserne et l'assigner à votre escouade pour l'entraînement. Pour cela, sélectionnez votre caserne avec q, puis l'escouade désirée (son nom devrait s'afficher dans le menu), puis cliquez sur t activer l'entraînement de l'escouade dans cette caserne.

Je n'arrive pas à créer une escouade fonctionelle ! [modifier]

1. L'escouade a besoin d'un commandant

Dans l'écan military, vous trouverez sur la gauche l'option Militia Commander pour votre première escouade. Commandant de la milice (militia commander) est le grade du chef de votre première escouade. créez une escouade à partir de ce grade et définissez l'équipement associé à l'escouade. Placez ensuite le nain que vous destinez à être commandant en première position et complétez les positions libres avec les autres membres de l'escouade.

Pour plus d'information sur la façon de créer une escouade, reportez-vous à la page Escouade (squad),

Remarque : Si vous vous rendez à l'écran des nobles, le leader de la première escouade sera listé comme « Commandant de la milice (militia commander) ». Si le chef d'une de vos escouades meurt, il vous faudra le ou la replacer.

2. L'escouade a besoin d'ordre

En mettant en place une planification (schedule), l'escouade saura ce qu'elle doit faire au cours de chaque mois de l'année sans que vous ayez besoin de donner d'ordre direct. Training (10 minimum) toute l'année est désactivé par défaut. « 10 minimum » est en fait un maximum : les membres de l'escouade s'entraîneront entre eux, formant un groupe d'au maximum 10 nains. Les nains quitteront régulièrement l'entra înement, de façon temporaire, pour faire une pause, manger, boire ou dormir. Des pensées négatives à propos de patrouilles trop longues (long patrol duty) n'ont aucun lien avec la présence ou non de ces courtes pauses : ces pensées résultent d'une insuffisance de mois réglés sur « Inactive / no order ». Ainsi, même si un nain passe son temps à dormir pendant ses mois d'entraînement, il pourra être grognon juste parce qu'officiellement, il s'entraîne.

Remarque : Vous pouvez donnez des ordres très précis à propos de l'entraînement, des patrouilles, etc. mais ils ne sont pas nécessaires dans un premier temps et ne feront qu'ajouter de la confusion à votre gestion des escouades.

3. The squad needs a barracks

Assuming you already have a barracks-marked room, query-ing the barracks-denoting piece of furniture (bed, armor stand, or weapons rack) will list all of your squads. Then, select the squad you want from the list. (z) flags the area for sleeping (t) flags the area for training (i) and (q) flags the area for dumping their equipment all over the place. This is only important if your squads ever go inactive and have been ordered to switch to civilian gear only.

Note: Each option turned on will be marked with a single multicolored letter. Make sure that at least the Cyan T is showing to the right of the squad's listing, designating the area is used for the their training. You will probably have more than one bed, armor stand, or weapon rack in the barracks, so will have to find the one room-defining object by moving the cursor around. Remember to only have one piece of furniture define the space, don't have overlapping room definitions.

4. The squad needs to be activated

In the squad screen, Your first squad will be selected with (a), whereupon the (t) option will toggle the squad between its inactive state and its active/<scheduling> state.

Note: The squad starts off inactive and, when activated, should now show Active/Training if their schedule was left as the default train all year.

5. Hope for the best!

Un-pausing the game, you should be receiving the drafted Dwarves' Professions changing to their military versions almost immediately.

Note: When troubleshooting, a schedule of training (10 minimum) all year round saves a lot of heartache when trying to get the system running for the first time.

Alerts? Schedules? What am I looking at here?[modifier]

A schedule is what a dwarf/squad will do when a particular alert is active; once alerts are made and scheduling is performed within these alerts, you can simply change a squad's alert based on the scenario and they will follow out highly specified and complicated programming. For example, if you make two alerts named 'Caravan Guard' for protecting incoming traders and 'Bloody Kobolds' for attacking thieves, we can change Squad A's scheduling in 'Caravan Guard' to patrol your trade route and change their scheduling in 'Bloody Kobolds' to defend a pre-defined burrows around your entrance. When a caravan shows up, you can change Squad A to be under the 'Caravan Guard' alert (either a in the military screen or t to cycle through when in the squad screen with a squad selected) and they will begin running up and down your route as the traders make their way through. When you get the 'Protect the hoard from thieving scum!' message, you can change their alert to 'Bloody Kobolds' and Squad A will charge off to defend the entrance.

Different squads can be given different alerts at once, but these squads can also be given different scheduling within the same alert - for example, you could make Squad B's scheduling in the 'Caravan Guard' alert to defend a burrows around your trade depot, then assign both A and B to 'Caravan Guard' when the traders appear and have one squad walk them in and the other keep the depot clear.

As schedules are broken up by month, you can make very complicated schedules in which dwarves train two months, take one off, then patrol your map for a season then take a shift defending the entrance, while having a second squad do something completely different, and change their scheduling instantly by applying a different alert. For ease, orders can be copied and pasted in the scheduling menu. Once you get the hang of the system it becomes extremely versatile. See Scheduling for more information.

I can't seem to apply orders to my schedule[modifier]

When you finish with the Give Orders menu and hit shift+enter to save your changes, you may notice that your changes have not been saved. This is because your order does not have a defined location. Station orders need a station to be assigned to, patrol route orders need a route to follow, and defend burrows orders need a burrows to defend. When giving or editing orders, you must select the specific area from a list on the left pane.

Keep in mind that the left and right panes in the Give Orders menu can both be highlighted even if one is empty - if your pane doesn't seem to be highlighted, hit the left or right key to properly select it.

My dwarves won't wear the uniform I made![modifier]

The uniforms tab within the menu screen is not for assigning uniforms to your dwarves, it is for making uniform templates that can later be applied. Open the equipment tab then the Uniform sub-tab and you will be able to apply your uniform to either a single dwarf at once with enter or a squad at once with shift+enter. Your uniforms should appear in the rightmost pane.

How do I make my dwarves kill things?[modifier]

If your soldiers are stationed, defending a barracks, or patrolling a route, they are defending. To make them go on the offense, you need to open the squads screen, select a squad using a/b/c/etc. as listed and hit k to 'Attack.' Then you pick your targets: either hit l to choose from a list of possible targets, r to select all targets within a rectangle, or simply move the cursor to what you want to attack and press enter. Your dwarves should now have the 'Kill _____' duty and charge after your target(s). To select multiple squads at once just hold shift while selecting, or hit p while selecting to select specific dwarves.

SOME ENEMIES CANNOT BE KILL-ORDERED. Or more specifically, some enemies like hydras, minotaurs, or forgotten beasts can be targeted for slaughter, but the dwarves won't actually carry it out. The only way around this is to order a squad to move to the location of the enemy instead. (It seems like a squad of any kind of monster is immune, more likely than not, and the same kind may be vulnerable to a kill order one time and resistant the next.)

Just watch out for the next question below...

I can't get my dwarves to STOP killing things![modifier]

When a targetable creature is noticed by your military, be it the target of a kill order or simply close enough to be noticed by stationed/patrolling dwarves, your dwarves will engage it and will not give up or run away (or even drop the chase if it's slow) until either it or the target is dead. The only way to stop them is to cancel all their military orders, returning them to civilian status and causing them to run away instead. Bear in mind that not every civilian dwarf will choose to flee; some combats may be inevitable.

If a squad is trying to s->k kill a target, but that target has escaped the map, or is no longer reachable, then Cancel Orders for the squad. s squad a select a given squad exclusively, cancel o order.

My dwarves won't go off-duty! They're starving themselves![modifier]

Your order criteria is too high - order criteria is the number of dwarves in a squad required to follow out an order. By default a new order's criteria is set to 10 dwarves, or the entire squad; this means that you've told your dwarves that this order is of the absolute highest importance and that the entire squad needs to be on duty at all times. By changing this to two or three dwarves less than the number of dwarves in your squad (go to schedule from the military screen and press Tab, then edit the number of dwarves with + and -), some of your dwarves will be able to relax and take some me-time to grab supplies while the others follow your orders out.

I keep activating my dwarves but they still have their civilian positions![modifier]

If a squad is off-duty it may be dressed in its civilian clothes and thus listed as civilians (e.g. a swordsdwarf may revert to 'carpenter'). There also seems to be a discrepancy between which orders are 'civilian' orders and which are 'military' orders. The Inactive/training alert switches dwarves to civilian labors and self-training in their spare time, while the Active/Training alert keeps dwarves in the barracks all the time. Unhappy thoughts from long duty do not occur on the active alert as long as they spend every other three months or so actively training instead of actively defending a chokepoint Modèle:Verify.

I can't seem to get my marksdwarves to practice firing at all![modifier]

There are several steps to getting marksdwarves to practice at archery targets.

1. Check that your prospective marksdwarves are equipped appropriately with the v-i keys.

2. Build an archery target. To create a target, open the build menu and select Archery target. It uses one stone, log, bar or block and requires the architecture skill to finish.

3. Use the q menu to designate the archery target as a room. Dwarves must stand at least two panels from the archery target.

4. Make sure that the shooting direction set for the target allows dwarves to use it. The was and d keys are used to designate shooting direction.

5. Assuming you have military squads, you should see their names on the target's information panel. Scroll to the appropriate archer squad/squad containing archers using the + and - keys.

6. Now the target must be set as available for training. Press t once you have selected the appropriate squad. Multiple squads must be selected separately in this way to allow them all to practice at the archery range.

7. Check your ammunition supplies! Press m then f to view the ammunition screen. Scroll to the marksdwarf squad and add new ammunition. Ammunition may be further customized by material using the M key.

8. This ammunition must then be designated for combat, training, or both using the C and T keys. It is recommended to create TWO separate ammunition piles, one for combat and one for training. This will ensure dwarves always save some ammunition for fighting instead of using it all while training. It is further recommended to save metal bolts for fighting, and wood and bone bolts for training.

My marksdwarves are sparring with their crossbows as a melee weapon![modifier]

You may have forgotten to assign them ammunition. In the military screen, open the ammunition tab (f) and then assign the squad your preferred ammunition. Remember to assign separate piles for training and fighting, or the squad will use all the bolts training and not have any left for killing enemies.

It is also possible that marksdwarves in v0.31 will not fire crossbows without a quiver; in the old version marksdwarves would carry a stack of bolts in their hand, but this does not seem to be the case anymore. Create some quivers and try again.

My hunter/marksdwarf ran out of bolts and won't pick up more![modifier]

This seems to be a bug as well (yes, there are many) (this is most likely fixed in 0.31.12 version or later Modèle:Verify ).

A workaround for this is to give your marksdwarf a move order and then cancelling it; your dwarf should snap back to reality and grab more bolts. Annoying, but should be a temporary problem.

If your troops still refuse to pick up ammo, it may be because that ammo has been assigned to a different squad or to the hunting labor (even if none of your civilians have that labor). Check the Ammunition screen; if it shows stacks of ammo assigned to hunters, remove or reduce the amount of ammo assigned to hunters, and your troops should pick it up again.

A related bug is that a hunter/marksdwarf might get stuck in a loop of picking up and dropping equipment (bows, bolts etc.), even if he usually trains at the range normally and/or there are animals to go hunt. Try removing his equipment on the military screen, watch him drop it, and then re-assign it. Make sure you have two piles of ammo listed for combat and training. Disabling the Hunting labour also seems to snap them out of this loop so that they will go and train instead. This problem may also be related to traffic designations - try removing any restrictive paths which might block access to needed equipment.
