my warriors wont equip weapons?
i've been into the settings to make specific "axedwarf" "swordsdwarf" "hammerdwarf"

and even though i am telling them to equip weapons, they leave the weapons to the ground and favor their fists for some obscure purpose.

any insight?

From my observations i think they take the best weapon, that fits theyr skills.
maybe they're brawlers.

yeah, i had them training for awhile before i came across any weapons... fighting up to 40 by the time some swords fell about them.

had to rename them to "Barefisted Loons" and "Barking Mad Dogs"
the first swordsgnome group will have to be my "Bloody Faces"

Nice names, flayerofmimes XD

haha thanks, i actually changed "barefisted loons" to "barefisted ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s."
barking mad dogs was inspired by planescape torment (theres a gang in that named the same or similarly) and bloody faces was actually a default the game gave me. :P

anyway, i've come to discover the "worn" weapon business. i havent yet made the weapon makers yet so, i dont have any weapons of my own.. that seems to be my problem.. the worn gear thing.

Yeah, I got a few problems maself; For the first time eva, I made it into the second year of the game, got all civies some protection 4 evryday jobs. However, after I built my 25th workshop, they stopped building anymore, even though I always prepare the necessary ingredients beforehand! And now, I'm dangerously low on food and drink, they aren't picking apples from my grove, they aren't working the distillery, even when i have cancelled all construction jobs and suspended many of the workshops and even deconstructed many I didn't need! ::((

Just like the modern army. I left me rifle on my bed because I'm so much better with my fists, Sarge. Lets go get the Talaban. My left hook is gonna get the job done, leave the drones at home.

Is it possible that your farmers are using your traininggrounds?
Farmer is the Job that comes with cooking, brewing and of course, farming.
only other food related job is the rancher. This one is designated for cooking.

thers definitely something silly like that going on. i stick with all my first gnomes on the jobs their set to, minus the hauling, and use all the new gnomes to be soldiers and if they arent training, they're hauling, or doing metalwork/making tools and weapons. (unless one comes with a specific job needs doin).

with two squads now, they get almost everything done when off duty
