this version of the brickworks does not make the rooftiles needed for the medieval 2 and 3 tier building set included in MegaMod, you will still need the medieval kiln (and its horrible unhappiness radius!) to complete upgrades in the medieval set.

I just had a kilnman die of black lung from inhaling smoke.  Does this happen to every kilnman after enough exposure, or is it random like the rocks that kill quarry workers?

People usually die from old age. They can also die from disease or from being caught by a tornado.  There is also a random chance that every so often, someone dies from an accident or a disease specifically related to their profession. If it's a Kilnman's turn, he dies from black lung.

OK, so just to confirm: the program randomly decides it's time for someone to die, then decides who dies, and then decides how - in that order?  So someone who is a kilnman is in no more danger than anyone else?

safety hole mod which helps save miners also helps lessen other deaths.doesn't stop them but does make them happen less often. it is like giving the bannies safety training.

happiness does not matter much to banished. uness you use the north or norseman mods. most buildings don't even show this radius.roof tiles can be imported.

Basically. There is some sort of random "accident" generator in the game that decides when it is time to have an accident and chooses which profession has the accident. I believe each profession also specifies the likelihood that profession will be chosen - that's why those that work in mines and quarries have accidental deaths more often than others. 

The description of the accidental death is in the code and always remains the same until the code is modified. When modders add a new profession, they can describe the way that profession dies if there is an accident.

OK, so it might still be best to import bricks.  Thanks for the clarification.

Bricks cost more to make than they do to buy when you just consider the raw materials used - and even when you have an educated worker :( However, when you produce your own clay and furnace fuel, do you really need to consider how much you could trade them for? There's also the advantage is that once it is producing bricks, you don't have to worry about whether your merchant is going to bring any bricks to buy.  Having an Industrial Trader helps.  Once I have plenty of extra laborers, the chance of accidental death is something I've really never worried about but I can see your point.
