Strongsalves - 105 Early Spring by Sinergistic

Map Description:

There is only so much 5 FPS construction one can stand, so I decided to start a new fort in a more FPS friendly location, and decided to theme it.

This fort, when it is completed, will be a goblin prison POW camp.

I'm playing with the goblin family mod, which adds a bunch of different goblin races, so the g's in cages are goblins, they just don't have graphics.

I also modded in glass Beds, Bins and Barrels.

The fort started in 97 to whom it may interest.

Point of Interest: How each layer should look

This is how each layer of the fort will look when I'm done. I've already made several mistakes on a couple of the layers, so I'm going to have to revise my plans a little to accommodate fixing them. (I didn't line up one of the wings, and not each wing is spaced the same number of tiles from the center. The left and right wings are closer than the top and bottom. Arrrrg. Don't mass designate at 3am.) - Sinergistic

Not really, no, I just channeled around the edges, and then collapsed it ^_^ (after locking my dwarfs up in their bedrooms and the food room)

It took several tries to get it to collapse, I kept pulling the level attached to the supports I had installed, and nothing would happen. I finally got it on the 4th attempt though, after completely channeling around the top level, and then collapsing that down on to the layers below.

all of my *manual collapses* have ended in epic fail so far, I've lost many good miners trying to collapse things and I also managed to bust a hole in my ceiling causing magma to pour in!

"Like woah" - Markavian

So, uh, what bit of it was 'woah'? :P

Edit: I would also like you thank you for your amazing website. I've seen so many cool and inspiring forts since I started browsing it about 8-9 months ago. (didn't register until recently) It is a very awesome service, and a huge boon to the DF community.

What are all the B's in your cages?

Submitted by: Sinergistic - 2009-01-14 to 107 Early Summer

'Bugbears' part of the Goblin Family mod found here.

I tinkered with it a little to adapt it to the kind of fort I wanted (got rid of TRAPAVOID for one, because that just wouldn't work now, would it?). I also removed the [CANSPEAK] tag as well, which leads to all of them wanting me dead. Lots of sieges, lots of ambushes, lots of good times in the future with I begin work on the arenas.

I updated 'The Dungeon' point of interest with a little more info on what's in the cages.

I've seen this tileset being used a lot lately, which one is it?

Submitted by: Sinergistic - 2009-01-16 to 107 Early Summer

I'm using a hand drawn copy of Dortens and whatever came with the mayday v16 set.

I'm still playing around with it and tweaking it to how I want it.

Singergistic, you've hollowed out a huge cylinder with a walk way around the edge of each level. It looks fantasticly grand. And then there's the spiral dungeon on the ground floor. Its just epic proportions. A far cry from the single tunnel hovels that most people begin building.

And thanks for the kind words : )

I haven't had too many problems with manual channeling. My worst problem probably is dealing with the unhappy thoughts of being knocked off your feet.

I would just like to point out the historic 10,000th point of interest attributable to this map. Cheers everyone, I love what you've done for this site :)

Awesome! I love the look of the glass-furnished bedrooms with this tileset. The central shaft of chaotic stairway hell is also amazing, and the spirally area way down below.

Very grand-looking fort. Has a nice, smooth feel to it - very much like the basis around the central pit / giant empty space.
