Command: suspend

Suspends building construction jobs.

This tool will suspend jobs. It can either suspend all the current jobs, or only construction jobs that are likely to block other jobs. When building walls, it’s common that wall corners get stuck because dwarves build the two adjacent walls before the corner. The --onlyblocking option will only suspend jobs that can potentially lead to this situation.

See suspendmanager in gui/control-panel to automatically suspend and unsuspend jobs.




-b, --onlyblocking

Only suspend jobs that are likely to block other jobs.


--onlyblocking does not check pathing (which would be very expensive); it only looks at immediate neighbours. As such, it is possible that this tool will miss suspending some jobs that prevent access to other farther away jobs, for example when building a large rectangle of solid walls.
