Heartmine - 824 Late Summer by itg_

Map Description:

Fort containing among other things a mostly-complete colony on the magma sea floor. See this forum thread: http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=128226.30

Point of Interest: Magma cistern

The above ground structure, 10 z-levels high, is cast obsidian, and the cistern extends downward through four layers of aquifer, all the way to the level above the magma sea. When I drained the magma sea, this is where most of it went. I had vague plans for this magma that got put on the back burner once I started the magma sea colony. - itg_

How long did it take you to cast that magma cistern? Also you are a grandmaster at DF.

Thanks! It's hard to say how long it took since I put the project on the back burner a few times. Maybe 15 years?

Awesome. I can barely imagine what it'd be like as a young dwarf arriving at this massive fortress for the first time, setting eyes down on the great staircase from the bridge above.

It's about 30 with temperature off. I keep my population at about 100 and am constantly dumping surplus items into the abyss.

One of the better fortresses in recent memory! Awesome work - how long IRL have you been churning out this beast?

Submitted by: itg_ - 2014-04-28 to 901 Mid Spring

About a year, on an off. I haven't put nearly as much work into it since the beginning of this year, since I've been waiting for the new release.
