I can't get my soldier dwarves to wear proper armor and use actual weapons. Here is what I have done:
- I have assigned dwarves to be part of a squad, and defaulted their armor to 'metal'.
- I click e for equip
- For each soldier in the squad, I delete 'indiv choice melee', change to w for weapon, and then I pick 'battle axe'
- My weaponsmith has forged iron breastplates and iron battle axes.
I do all this and nothing happens. Looking at the soldier's inventory, I see that they're still wearing their old clothing (ie, spider silk dress). None of them seem to be wielding the axes either.
I thought maybe they didn't' understand, so I went to the military screen, picked a soldier and assigned 'metal breastplate' and 'breastplate'. This did not change a single thing.
I'm not sure if this matterss, but I noticed on the top of the equip screen there is the text:
r: Over Clthng
How do I get my soldiers to be properly equipped?
