Hi, I know that in DF 40d, there was a way to tell the dwarves to stay indoor. Is there any way to do that in 2010... It's quite useful when there are goblins attacks.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@LessPop how do you figure? The intent of the question is not even similar. – Raven Dreamer Nov 28 '10 at 2:34
Yeah, I misread the question. Consider the close vote 'retracted'. :/ – LessPop_MoreFizz Nov 28 '10 at 2:45

To do this you need to familiarize yourself with burrows and military alerts.

The key is to make a burrow that is completely behind your defensive perimeter. Then, you can access the military alerts screen (Default: m - a) and set things up to restrict civilians to a particular burrow.

At that point, whenever you change the alert, when the sieges and ambushes come around, your civilians will not leave the safety of their burrow.
