IT HAS BEGUN!!!!! The first stages of construction are underway, despite the losses collected through the most recent encounter.
The base floor/temp-storage has been built, and a new trade depot has been established within (made of Obsidian). Stemming from the base, the basic skeleton of the ship is being built as we speak, and the flooring and skinning are going along swimmingly.
Now, as for constructing parts like the mechanisms and the boilers, that'll be a bit of a challenge, seeing as the processing of the materials hasn't been done. In the window of time provided, can it be done in time?
Only time will tell.
NOTE: Lining up building along with my lego design is a bitch-and-a-half; but interesting nonetheless. A minor adjustment will be done to keep consistent with the form. The service doorways will be knocked south 1 more tile, right next to where the boilers would be.
Ever behold, the construction of the ship has finally come to fruition. The first floor was simple enough to construct.
Alas, due to the wonky nature of construction, the ballistae will be constructed in a rather odd manner, in order for a proper stairway to access them to exist.
As you can see as you look around the ship, I'm taking a rather different approach to construction.
Season 1 goal is complete: Commence construction and finish, at least, the bottom deck.
Next season, I'll hopefully fill in the next deck as well as get some windows formed, and more of the skeleton constructed. - Itnetlolor

Keep climbing up levels to appreciate the rest of this structure while it stands; because soon enough, it'll be beaten by a glorious airship next year. - Itnetlolor

The entire fort will only be updated if anything significant occurs. - Itnetlolor
