Fenceskull - 315 Late Autumn by _nil_

Map Description:

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.

Uses Mephansteras's CivForge mod with Stridor's graphic set (vanila graphics from Mayday)

Point of Interest: Map-breaking little bastard

I haven't seen any action in the year and change since this guy lodged himself in the sky, and given the rate that they were coming before that, I'm pretty sure this means they're not gonna. I tried collapsing rocks on him as well as a utility or two, but nothing seems to work. - _nil_

That's a cool dome, what use is th spiral staircase up the middle?

That will be my entrance road, designed to both efficiently kill invaders and to use gravity to bring their gear to the trade depot's doorstep.

Your dome is definitely not half done yet. Interesting Idea though.

How did the entrance work for you?

Sucks about the stuck guy, seems like a bummer. Maybe revert to a save before it happened?

I actually haven't gotten an invasion (due to the bug, mostly) since the entrance ramp was fully closed off. Before that I was having some trouble with ranged enemies sniping my staircases. Otherwise, though, it works great; I have huge piles of gear on a number of those bridges, ready to be dropped.

Also, trying out the new image tags:

Its turned out to be a fantastic dome, and living area by the looks of things. You don't see buildings like that on this world very often (can't think of any), really cool stuff.
