Tower of Towers - 1061 Early Spring by joshdw4

Map Description:

I'm actually liking the above-ground fortress. Allows nearly anything and looks interesting.

The population cap is set at 47, which I'm close to raising and allowing the flood. And I do mean flood because I'm sitting at 2.3 million worth in the fortress. Once I finish my plans for the residential district and a rough section of wall around the area, I'll remove the cap.

Very cool so far, its looking like a proper castle :) I like the extensive space you've picked out for building your fort, lending to the Town Square and all that, makes it feel very organised and 'homely'?

To get invaders, I think you need a pop of at least 80

Thanks Markavian. I think I left too much room though. Need more ideas for things to put in. If only pumps still duplicated magma, I would mess with obsidian buildings

Thanks Krash. I'll probably raise it to 80 sometime soon, but I'm deathly afraid that I made a really dumb mistake... or that I'll up the cap and the next release will have digging goblins.

Looking really good now, I love the details with the tower and mosaic. The borders look pretty secure, you just need to make sure all the paths into the fort are trapped or guarded. If you haven't already, make a ton of bone bolts and train up some peasants as marksdwarves and post them around the entrances.

uhm, holy ****?

When you're done, can I get the save? This woudl be absolutely awesome to try out in adventure mode :D

Sure Sukasa. I'll hand it over when I'm done. Do you want me to abandon, succumb to an invasion, or just hand it to you functioning?

Submitted by: Sukasa - 2008-02-12 to 1064 Early Spring

Functioning, perhaps? I'd be interested in seeing how you make things work, my forts can never get big before they fail in some spectaculr way or another (usually a result of mishaps in the machinery rooms). PRobably the best was when I flooded an entire underground base in only a few seconds XD

Only one question- where'd you source the water for the moat? I notice that you have a lot of water in all the lakes and the moat, but I can't see any particular source for said moat >_>

Submitted by: joshdw4 - 2008-02-12 to 1064 Early Spring

The water for the moat and the waterfall come from the aquifer. For the moat, I pumped it out and then closed the floodgate. The waterfall gets pumped from the aquifer then runs back into it.

I'm retiring this one. Just a little bored of it. Just let me know where to send it.

Think you could message me on the bay12games forum? I've got a place I'd like to know if you could send it, but I don't want to give out the URL for it publically, it's a private uploader.
