After trying to fight off a zombie dingo with my melee militia, I've got a lot of zombies walking around outside my fortress. (Who'd have known it was contagious?)

For some reason, Dwarf Therapists lists zombie dwarves. Is there a way to remove them from the list, or sort the list by zombieness? It's kind of hard to get an overview of the fortress right now.

    The simplest solution that comes to mind is to get rid of the zombies.

    That would end up in all my dwarves being zombies. At least they'd be sorted.

    Only if you use the least ingenious way of zombie extermination, which is force of arms. There are always traps, or you could just cavein the entire surface by 10 z-levels or so, that should get rid of most anything.

When Dwarf Therapist picks up an illegitimate dwarf (mine shows a hostile captive were-beast and one dwarf who was kidnapped years ago) you could change their profession and nickname to something identifiable and unique.

Examples: ["nickname" name, PROFESSION]

  • "VampireFace" McLastName, VAMPIRE
  • "Wereskink" McLastName, ENEMY
  • "zzSo-and-So" McLastName, DESCRIPTION

And so forth. It won't get rid of them, obviously, but it makes it easy to disregard their labor assignments when listing by profession and/or name. The last example would work exclusively to put them at the bottom of an alphabetical list, if you find yourself sorting that way most often. I put my custom profession names in all-caps to easily tell which ones I've made, but that isn't exactly necessary. =)
