3.2 - monster rarity levels changed?

Have the monster rarity levels changed, or is my luck just insanely bad? I was just killed by Uvatha the Horseman on dungeon level 5! I've never seen this dangerous a unique this shallow before! Uvatha is native to like 40, right?

Are you sure you're playing 3.2? That sounds like a more recent nightly, where there was a temporary spike in dungeon generation ...

Are you sure you aren't using one of the nightlies that had accidentally changed dungeon generation to always include unusual rooms? That could easily create a vault with vastly out-of-depth monsters.

Edit: beaten by Magnate. Shows what I get for going to poke at vault.txt a bit before posting...

3.2.0 on the Mac, just double checked. Although I was previously using a nightly. Could it somehow be using the code from the other version?

I'm not a mac user, but we have a ticket open to stop nightlies getting confused with "normal" installations on Macs. So yes, I think this is what's happening - you are somehow still playing the nightly, as 3.2.0 definitely doesn't have the unusual dungeon stuff in it. In fact modern nightlies don't either - it's been reverted.

The last nightly I used was I think 3.1.2v2, from November. I played with a char to clev 30, didn't notice anything strange. But maybe it is still running that version, and the weirdness just never showed previously?

As a side, I'm not a big fan of the mac...

Also, it sure seems like 3.2, with monster lights, new book interface, etc, that were not in the last version I played.

Oh ok then - if the last nightly you played was before 3.2, then Uvatha appearing on dl5 is just the RNG having a spliff, it's not the problem that was in recent nightlies.
