comment Do I always get an abundance of just a couple different metal ores?
I believe you will find this is a result of the world generation process. There is some (very basic) geology built into the models that build up the layers of bedrock. And they try to mimic real life processes that tend to generate a limited variety of minerals in a particular location.

comment How do I get my dwarfs inside?
@C.Ross Thank you so much. I didn't notice this in Captnduck's tutorials, or 51ppycup's 2012 tutorials. How early in the game do you personally do this? Do you end up having to change the size of your burrow as your fortress grows, or do you just plan ahead for your whole fortress?

comment What are the best objects to put in a dwarf's room?
When you put it like that, sure. It just did not occur to me that the tiles counted as a possession of the Dorf. Thank ye.

comment What are the best objects to put in a dwarf's room?
Is the size of the room itself also a consideration as to what will make a Dorf happy?

comment How can I make use of idle dwarves?
I noticed that in Captnduck's tutorials he keeps between 1/4 and 1/6 of his population as peasants; and uses them solely for hauling things.

comment When will the roof cave in on me?
@Just to be clear, you both agree that cave-ins won't happen in the newest version? Capnduck mentions something about them in one of his first videos. (It's just a passing comment.)

comment Do different anvil materials have different capabilities?
So, you're saying my Adamantite anvil is a waste? I should melt it down to be used for building other things?
