I'm playing on
Terrifying biome, and I have a problem where all my dwarves like to rush outside and stand by the wagon.
I have food, water, and tasks that need to be completed in my mountain fortress. I have assigned most of the dwarves to haul stone, but half just ignores it and would stand outside until they fall unconscious.
Now, besides that, the main problem is how do I tell the dwarves to NOT go outside at all? All the threads I've read about this said to create a burrow, and then put the dwarves on alert, and then they'll run to the burrow. But all this in the context of being under attack.
I just dont' want my dwarves to go outside if they can help it since Terrifying biome causes my dwarves to frequently fall unconscious outside. And also, when on alert, the dwarves wont' do any tasks. They just rush to the burrow point (a 2x1 block) and stand there until I turn off the alert. Then once the alert is off, a bunch of them will rush outside and stand by the wagon or to collect some random thing on the ground.
How can I have my dwarves remain inside without walling off the outside?
