Fenceskull with dome and entrance completed. I was working my way down to fill out the dome and trying to figure out my next project (deciding between flooding the underworld, making a perpetual waterfall over the dome's surface, a green glass megaproject, or some combination the above) when I realized I'd been hit by the flying goblin bug. Fortunately I have backups, unfortunately I'll loose a year and change. As a result, I've set this fort down for a while, but when I pick it back up I'll use this map as the template, as I'm pretty happy with where it's gone.

While I still haven't cleaned up the dome floor entirely, I hope to eventually have my animal processing entirely on this level (maybe the one below it too). In the upper left, I have the path to my breeding pit paved with retractable grates; the idea is that I can trap escaping animals behind the various pet-impassable doors then easily drop them back into the pit. It's not foolproof, but it works as long as I don't butcher too many pitted animals at once. Miasma constantly comes out of the trench in front of the auxiliary entrance, which looks pretty cool.
This level also holds the gym. - _nil_

This road will be the main entrance to the fort when completed; visitors will travel up a long ramp to enter the dome near the top, then will spiral down to the ground. This will hopefully achieve three things. First, it'll create a number of well-defended fortifications that fire fully horizontally (I learned from my last big fort!). Second, it'll help with equipment processing; by opening the retractable drawbridges, most gear from defeated enemies should fall to the bottom, right next to the depot. Finally, I'll be able to draw enemies deep into the fort then release my melee champions behind them--no more chasing routing goblins to the edge of the map. - _nil_

This entrance is for when I need easier access to the outdoors. - _nil_
