Create a unit.
This tool allows you to easily spawn a unit of your choice. It is a simplified interface to modtools/create-unit, which this tool uses to actually create the requested unit.
spawnunit [-command] <race> <caste> [<name> [<x> <y> <z>]] [...]
-command is specified, the generated modtools/create-unit command is
printed to the terminal instead of being run.
The name and coordinates of the unit are optional. Any further arguments are simply passed on to modtools/create-unit. See documentation for that tool for information on what you can pass through.
To see the full list of races and castes for your world, run the following command:
dfhack-run devel/query --table df.global.world.raws.creatures.all --search [ creature_id caste_id ] --maxdepth 3 --maxlength 5000
spawnunit GOBLIN MALE
Warp in a (male) goblin for your squads to beat on.
spawnunit JABBERER FEMALE --domesticate
Spawn a tame female jabberer for breeding an army!
