DF2014 how to get rid of severe acne scars Water – Dwarf Fortress Wiki

Water is a fluid found all over the world. It flows from mountain springs, forming the world’s oceans, lakes, rivers, and brooks. Water falls as rain and snow, and freezes into ice. Water is home to a variety of aquatic creatures. Many creatures can swim in deep water. Air-breathing creatures that are submerged in water can drown in how to get rid of severe acne scars it. Water comes in two varieties: freshwater, which makes up almost all inland water, and saltwater, which fills the seas. In this version, some brooks and murky pools can be saltwater even if how to get rid of severe acne scars the fortress site is partially mountainous. It is not known if this is a bug. To tell the difference, attempt to set up a drinking zone including some of how to get rid of severe acne scars the water in question. If there are zero tiles of water source available, the water is saltwater.

Water can be displayed in two ways, depending on the settings in d_init.Txt. By default it is displayed with the symbols ≈ and ~, sometimes colored different blues, and white, showing ripples, and flow. Setting [SHOW_FLOW_AMOUNTS:YES] in d_init.Txt will cause water to display using a depth indicator how to get rid of severe acne scars of 1 through 7 instead. Water can also take on other colors indicating contaminants such how to get rid of severe acne scars as blood, ichor, or goo.

Dark-colored water symbols indicate the water is one Z-level below the camera level. Water has 7 depth levels per tile, with 1 being a shallow puddle, and 7 filling the tile completely. Dwarves can safely walk through water up to a depth how to get rid of severe acne scars of 3 – at depth 4 or higher, a dwarf will cancel jobs due to "dangerous terrain" and begin to gain swimming experience. At depth 7, any dwarf that does not have sufficient swimming skill will how to get rid of severe acne scars drown.

Interestingly, water can slow falls with deep enough water and short how to get rid of severe acne scars enough falls. If the water is deep enough relative to the height how to get rid of severe acne scars of the fall, dwarves can be less injured or even completely uninjured (from a 4 level drop to a 3 level deep how to get rid of severe acne scars pool, for example)

In the normal underground temperature of 10015 °U , evaporation occurs when water or magma is at a depth how to get rid of severe acne scars of 1/7. The exact rate of evaporation is unknown, but it is affected by temperature and surrounding liquids. A single 1/7 water tile will evaporate faster than a large recently how to get rid of severe acne scars flooded area or a 1/7 water tile by a river, for example.

Many environments get cold enough for water to freeze in how to get rid of severe acne scars winter. When this happens, any water that is exposed above ground will freeze into how to get rid of severe acne scars ice. However, water a single tile away that is in an underground how to get rid of severe acne scars tunnel will not freeze. When ice walls thaw, they always leave a 7/7 water tile regardless of how much water may have how to get rid of severe acne scars been present when the ice formed.

When outdoor water freezes or thaws it does so instantly. Any dwarf swimming in water when it freezes will die, and any dwarf standing on a frozen pond will fall how to get rid of severe acne scars into it when it thaws, most likely leading to drowning if the dwarf is not how to get rid of severe acne scars an experienced swimmer.

Caving in an ice wall into a stone layer will how to get rid of severe acne scars cause it to instantly melt into water (provided it does not become exposed to the outdoors), which can be used to get water near the surface how to get rid of severe acne scars in a glacier biome without having to use a pump how to get rid of severe acne scars stack to pump water up from a cavern pool.

The freezing point of water, 10000 °U , is an important, if not the most important, temperature in dwarf fortress. Below this point, water freezes into ice, and above this point ice will melt into water. A biome that never dips below this temperature will make how to get rid of severe acne scars obtaining ice next to impossible, and a biome that never rises above this temperature will how to get rid of severe acne scars require underground storage, magma, or an alternative heating method to obtain liquid water.

Although it is most commonly known as the freezing point how to get rid of severe acne scars of water, 10000 °U is also the freezing points of standard blood, ichor, goo, slime, pus, milk, egg white, and egg yolk. Nether-caps are naturally constantly at this temperature, but will cause neither water to freeze nor ice to how to get rid of severe acne scars melt. The temperature also acts as the condensation point of cave how to get rid of severe acne scars floater gas, at which it becomes cave floater juice. As a result of these dependencies, many creatures will die if they cannot keep their internal how to get rid of severe acne scars body temperature above the freezing point of water.

Below this point, many machine components will not work, instead displaying "frozen here". This includes screw pumps, windmills, and minecart rollers. In colder environments, these machines must either be kept indoors or heated with how to get rid of severe acne scars nearby fire or magma.

Water (as well as magma) can be one of eight different depths. You can find out how deep water is by examining how to get rid of severe acne scars it with the loo k command, or by editing your d_init.Txt file to display water levels by changing the SHOW_FLOW_AMOUNTS how to get rid of severe acne scars value to YES.

Water depth ranges from 0-7, where 0 is no water and 7 is maximum depth. Note that water depth is per z-level (or z-index); that is, if a tile is at depth 7/7, it means that the water on that level is at how to get rid of severe acne scars maximum depth, not that the water extends down 7 z-levels. A lake three z-levels deep, with each level having 7/7 depth, can be thought of as having 21 levels of depth.

Water that comes from aquifers, as well as any water source that extends from the how to get rid of severe acne scars edge of the map ( rivers, brooks, oceans, and some lakes) is considered to be sourced water. Any sourced water is an endless supply of water that how to get rid of severe acne scars can never run dry, although it can freeze for part or all of the how to get rid of severe acne scars year in colder biomes. Murky pools, although not ‘sourced water’ as described here, also slowly generate water during rain storms. This can make it possible for a murky pool to how to get rid of severe acne scars replenish itself even when it has been completely drained.

Water and magma are both fluids which are constantly trying how to get rid of severe acne scars to flow into adjacent tiles until they have filled all how to get rid of severe acne scars available space or until they run out of fluid. Fluids technically move in 9 directions: down, and to the sides. Fluids cannot move diagonally up or down. Fluids at a depth of 1/7 no longer attempt to move unless they can move how to get rid of severe acne scars down. Fluids under pressure can appear to travel upward until the how to get rid of severe acne scars pressure equalizes, though in reality they are moving downward and/or sideways relative to their source.

When water falls onto a tile that is already full, the game will always attempt to move it into a how to get rid of severe acne scars non-full tile on the same Z-level that can be legally reached (i.E. Without going through a wall or other obstruction), even if it has to "teleport" the incoming fluid a long distance to do so. Only when all available tiles are full will incoming water how to get rid of severe acne scars "pile up" on top. This behavior can be exploited to move water long distances how to get rid of severe acne scars very quickly (see "getting rid of unwanted water" below).

A screw pump or a U-bend can be used to desalinate water. Dwarves will drink water from a well over salt water, give it to sick dwarves and use it to clean how to get rid of severe acne scars wounds. Even if you do not designate the well as a how to get rid of severe acne scars water source (which is unnecessary anyway), the dwarves will still use it.

Water taken from a murky pool or wetlands biome will how to get rid of severe acne scars be stagnant, just as water taken from near the ocean will be how to get rid of severe acne scars salty. Dwarves get an unhappy thought if they have to drink how to get rid of severe acne scars stagnant water, and a doctor cleaning a wound with stagnant water will how to get rid of severe acne scars have an increased risk of infection. Similar to salt water, pumping stagnant water will make it clean. Also, if clean water touches stagnant water, it will destroy stagnant water. 0.34.09

If a water source is only one z-level deep and its floor is covered by "a pile of mud" (like most underground pools), then any water taken from it will be "water laced with mud". Drinking water laced with mud will give your dwarves an how to get rid of severe acne scars unhappy thought. It might also cause infection if used to clean a how to get rid of severe acne scars wound.

Unlike stagnant water, merely moving the water with flow or gravity, or keeping a level of water higher than one z-level will take care of the problem, since it only occurs if the water source tile contains how to get rid of severe acne scars "a pile of mud", and water coming into contact with a clean floor only how to get rid of severe acne scars creates "a dusting of mud".

Water can be tainted by contaminants. This can cause, for example, a dwarf that drinks the contaminated water to be affected how to get rid of severe acne scars by the contaminant. However, at this time more information is needed about how exactly how to get rid of severe acne scars this works and under what circumstances dwarves are affected by how to get rid of severe acne scars contaminated water.

Contaminants that get into water currently can do very strange how to get rid of severe acne scars things. A pool of blood that gets covered by water will how to get rid of severe acne scars be pushed out of the water as the water flows how to get rid of severe acne scars creating more pools of blood at the edge of the how to get rid of severe acne scars water. Overflowing a large reservoir that contains contaminants of blood will how to get rid of severe acne scars generate a large amount of blood very quickly. This behavior is thought to be the will of armok how to get rid of severe acne scars a bug.

Water will flow off the edge of the map, endlessly, which is one way to get rid of large amounts how to get rid of severe acne scars of water (evaporation works better with small amounts). Underground, there are at least two ways to accomplish this. One is to channel your excess water into a dry how to get rid of severe acne scars cavern that is open to the map edge, as the water will flow out (depending on slopes, original water level and such). Be careful if you dump the water into an underground how to get rid of severe acne scars lake, as such lakes have some sort of equilibrium built into how to get rid of severe acne scars them, and your excess water may cause them to flood. The other, probably easier method, is to mine to the map edge (since you cannot mine the map edge itself, just up to it), then smooth the edge and then carve fortifications into it. Water will flow through the fortifications and off the edge how to get rid of severe acne scars of the map. Make sure your exit flow is equal to or, for safety, greater than your input.

Draining lakes and oceans from underneath can be a finicky how to get rid of severe acne scars task, but there’s a bit of dwarven magic for it: build a retractable bridge on the level beneath the sea how to get rid of severe acne scars bottom, with ramps directly underneath it. Link this to a lever to control the flow as how to get rid of severe acne scars you desire. Now evacuate the dwarves and wall off the area above how to get rid of severe acne scars the bridge. Then, with the bridge in place, designate ramps around the bridge leading up – breaking through to the sea bottom. Now how can the dwarves dig these squares out? Yep, from beneath the bridge. In this way they get the water flow started without how to get rid of severe acne scars ever getting their little feet wet. This is a great way to set up channels one how to get rid of severe acne scars square in from the map edge near a water source, so that you can properly wall off the baddies from how to get rid of severe acne scars getting into the fort.

If you simply need to tap a single tile of how to get rid of severe acne scars the bottom of a lake/ocean there is a simple and completely foolproof way to how to get rid of severe acne scars do it, dig a tunnel under the lake, at the very end of the tunnel place a door. Now order the dwarf to dig an upward ramp at how to get rid of severe acne scars the end of the corridor (the upward ramp will pierce the bottom of the lake), he will do so while standing in the door tile how to get rid of severe acne scars and once he finishes digging he will take a step how to get rid of severe acne scars back and the door will automatically close preventing water from how to get rid of severe acne scars following the miner. The final step is to connect a lever to the how to get rid of severe acne scars door and pull the lever to open the door. Done right this method allows piercing even the deepest lakes how to get rid of severe acne scars without risk to the miner and also provides a way how to get rid of severe acne scars of blocking the flow in future.

Due to the way the game handles water flow, making your drainage vertical rather than horizontal whenever possible will how to get rid of severe acne scars drain water much more quickly and efficiently. IE: A tunnel one tile wide and two z-levels deep will drain water considerably faster than a 2 how to get rid of severe acne scars tile wide tunnel on a single z-level.
