Shoopin' and whoopin' and settin' up hosptitulz and statchew garduns! The metal industry takes off with a BANG and a hapless carpenter falls down the chimney shaft to his death while constructing it; gets buried in sweet underground burial chamber.

Point of Interest: 01. Magma Man

Hopefully does not decide to visit. :| - Noble Digger

What is with all of the grates all over the place? Flood protection?

Submitted by: Noble Digger - 2010-06-30 to 425 Late Winter

Some of the grates were scaffolding for things that needed to have their floors mined out so they could collapse. Some are in place just in case water gets in there--which is never likely to happen, but I enjoy building that sort of thing for the eventuality, especially if it adds something else to the fort at the same time. Some are there to trick forgotten beasts into going a certain way--they can't cross over grates because they try to destroy them instead.

I'm not really sure how you can use that tileset. It's probably one of the ugliest ones I've ever seen designed for actual use by humans.

Um, ok?

Please, bestow upon us your worldly knowledge concerning all things tilesets.

I, personally, quite like the pttg set, thank you very much.

'To each his own' is my creed,

and to the rest, a dip in the moat.

Edit: Though, if you'd like to see how this fort looks in a tileset of your choosing, feel free to suggest one and I'll export a screenshot using yours. It used to take 20+ minutes to complete the whole process, but with DF31.08 it takes 20 seconds give or take.

Wow, those magma chambers and the walled moat are something else.

Chimney... aha, I get it. Nice work. I like how you're theming the workshop areas around the fort - gives each place a focus and purpose.
