I've noticed activities like socializing or meditating appearing in the unit list in different colors: either in green, or in magenta with an exclamation mark. What's the difference between the two?

    Is one of them on fire? :o. That's usually what exclamation marks mean =p (Though not in this case I think)

The green one is an activity they do when they don't have other activities.

The magenta one is the satisfaction of an important need for the dwarf, and they will keep at it until they are satisfied above other things.


The magenta one will not be cancelled for a job. The green one will be cancelled for a job.Found here
