40d Talk:Hatch cover

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

can be made from wood at the carpenter's shop too

This should be merged with the other Hatch Cover topic - I didn't realise this one existed already as I was working from the Furniture category. Matryx 04:45, 5 November 2007 (EST)

Done. See Rule P. Old topic seemed to be a stub and is archived here:
Constructed from stone (and perhaps other materials) at the Mason's workshop. Used to build a floor hatch.

[edit] Cleaning up

I think this article should be merged with floor hatch into a single Hatch one (a bit like door). Currently, Hatch redirects to floor hatch.--Aykavil 07:26, 18 July 2008 (EDT)

I've merged everything to here, perhaps an admin can move to Hatch rather than cutting and pasting to there. Marasmusine 06:29, 7 August 2008 (EDT)

[edit] Destroyable?

Can floor hatches be destroyed? I'm assuming not, but will my otherwise nigh-impervious tower be destroyed if a dragon comes to town?

[edit] Not Trap Doors

One cannot make trap doors out of wall hatches since the pressure plate cannot be on the same tile. One could build a collapsing floor trap with supports, but hatches wouldn't work.

Hey, who said that trap floors have to be for 1 unit? I dunno about you, but having a hall full of hatches that trigger when you reach near the end sounds pretty entertaining... Having 10 goblins simultaneously fall into a pit of lava below... Haha.

[edit] Inside/Outside?

Can hatches be used to toggle an area between "outside/inside"? Sharp 14:45, 31 January 2009 (EST)

No. They cannot. --Zchris13 21:36, 23 February 2009 (EST)

[edit] Item Token

Maybe I'm retarded and missed it. What's the item token for making hatch covers? Rkyeun 17:12, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Fluids pushing from the lower floor

Hi, the article says „A closed floor hatch will block the passage of fluids onto the lower floor, and will stop falling creatures. They can also be used on ramps.“ Does this count for fluids which are floating from the lower floor to the upper level from pressure? 08:56, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
