Drowning[ | ]

Dwarfs lose health while submerged. When a submerged dwarf has less than 1/3 of health (1Dwarf Health), the player will be notified:

Dwarf drowning Dwarf

From this warning the player has 1 in-game minute (in normal speed) to take the dwarf out of the water before he dies. This time maybe shortened if the dwarf receives damage from other sources other than the drowning.

Use[ | ]

Digging underwater

A male dwarf digging underwater: he's about to hit a background stone block with a steel pick.

To counter this limitation dwarfs will automatically equip a diving helmet from the stockpile without ever going there, and despite already wearing another helmet or not.

Additionally, when there is at least one diving helmet available at the stock, dwarfs will accept and perform some underwater tasks (like digging, and fighting) that they would simply ignore, if the item was not there.

Only one dwarf can use a diving helmet at the same time. For simultaneous uses, more helmets should be available at the stock, one for each diving dwarf.
