How do I get my dwarfs inside?

How do I order everyone inside when I’m being attacked?

Answer

You need to define a burrow for the safe zone, and a civilian alert that restricts movement to it.

  • To create the burrow
    1. Press w to go to the burrows screen
    2. Press a to add a new burrow
    3. Size the burrow (remember, a burrow is 3d)
    4. Choose a name, color, etc
  • To create a new alert
    1. Press m to go to the military screen
    2. Press a to go to the alerts screen
    3. Press c to create a new alert
    4. Name it with N
    5. Now move the cursor to the far right column, which should have the burrow you just created, and hit enter to associate that burrow with your new alert. You’ll see a green A next to the burrow when you have that alert selected.
  • To activate the alert (as the civilian alert)
    1. Press m to go to the military screen
    2. Press a to go to the alerts screen
    3. Press enter while the alert is highlighted.
  • To deactivate the alert
    1. Press m to go to the military screen
    2. Press a to go to the alerts screen
    3. Select the ‘Inactive’ alert state, and press enter
