comment How is overwatch triggered, and how is it affected by cover?
I'm not totally sure of this, but it seems to me that Overwatch is triggered exactly when a target moves out of a visible tile. I've found that moving up to the very first tile from which I can see an Overwatching enemy is safe, allowing me to then shoot or throw a grenade or whatever. Also, Overwatch shots are basically always in no cover, which is good; but Overwatch itself confers an aim penalty to offset that, except from ambush. I almost never take direct shots under 50% if I'm in good enough cover that I think the enemies won't shoot either.

comment Do doors provide any cover at all?
Doors actually don't take a move action to open (not sure about closing). You can't do it if you've used all of the soldier's actions for the turn, which is fine because you wouldn't really want to anyway, but at any other time they take a "non-action", just like a free reload or picking up an unconscious person.

comment Building normally open floodgates
So the answer here is not to make a reversed-sense floodgate (Nick's answer is, knowing that a raising bridge has the opposite sense from a floodgate), but to make a reversed-sense pressure plate. Very clever.

comment Infinifactory - Furnished Studio Apartment - Do eviscerators work?
What are you planning to do with the eviscerator anyway? You don't have any extra blocks in that level; you need everything you get.

comment How to properly dispose of refuse
I would clarify one statement here: dead things placed Outside do rot (to skeletons, and eventually to nothing), but don't produce miasma in the process.

comment How do you make stacked houses?
I answered this question previously: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/112230/…. TLDR: a bug was introduced in like 1.0.9 that made NPCs unable to use wooden platforms, at all. It's one of the things that caused me to quit.

comment How can I get a dwarf to adopt a tame vermin?
Remember that having dwarves adopt vermin as pets is not necessarily a good idea. Many dwarves loathe various species of vermin, and will receive a (small) bad thought every time they see one, even tame.

comment Is there a mechanism to balance uneven team size?
You said you put the difficulty to 7. Remember that the effect of difficulty is inverted for AI allies, so turning it way up cripples your ally while boosting your opponent.
