The new manager interface allows you to set conditions on repeating jobs.

What qualifies an item with the "nearby" trait in the conditions?


It should be in a stockpile, or 20 tiles of the initial position. 20 tiles from the workshop for example.

I think you should be able to access it too, if it have no way to access the stockpile or workshop it will not be available as nearby.

Edit: I was trying to find a source, and remember to see it in the wiki http://dwarffortresswiki.org but the best thing I found is:

Hope this helps.

    Is that 20 tiles horizontally, regardless of z-level? Either way, that use of "Nearby" sounds consistent with general workshop behavior. Thank you. – Paul Apr 7 '17 at 20:48
