IRL bad idea flourishing in DF - a fort in the middle of a desert made entirely from 10 000 green glass blocks (and a few clear glass blocks used as grave markers). If you don't believe that would be a bad idea, consider a greenhouse :).
I did cheat a little while building this fortress. I was promised aquifier by the embark screen - when I didn't find it on site I've started using TileEdit to make water for my wounded. I've also used DFCompanion to heal some spine injuries, but that's it.
This is actually sort of a second attempt at colonizing this site (though technically it's the first) - after steadily climbing for some time my population was full of jobless dwarves who were just hanging around and making friends. I didn't have any private bedrooms OR an actual dining room by then, so when the baron bit it in a goblin ambush the fortress has quickly spiralled into violent, frenzied insanity, bringing my population to 1 (the overworked, armed to the teeth original expedition leader without any friends). I didn't abandon the fortress, using the amazing "raised drawbridges" technique to stave off the goblin sieges. The fortress survived.
