Towersoared - 321 Late Winter by Battlecat

Map Description:

Towersoared is a fortress with grand plans for 3D visualization. More can be found in the story thread here.

The military Tower was the big project of 321. While it's not done yet, it' is functional with enough barracks space for all the primary squads now, along with two swimming pools.

Point of Interest: The Grand Dining Hall

( 310 Late Winter → onwards )

Welcome to the grand dining hall of Towersoared! It is furnished with golden tables, silver thrones and the best statues from our craftsdwarves.
Soaring 19 floors overhead is a green glass dome. On the north and south sides of the room there are storage rooms that will eventually contain food and drinks.
Many tasks still remain before it can be considered finished but it is officially in use now. - Battlecat

nice fort battlecat, two questions what tile-set do you use, its very similar to the mayday one but i see some differences its pretty cool, and second whats the giant pit outside your fort for or going to be used for in the future

Actually the tileset is maday as far as I know. I'm using his more complete one, without the background fill. There have been a few glitches in recent updates though, so a couple of things don't look the same as I remember. I'm considering changing to a different tileset at some point in the future.

The giant pit out front is going to be a dining hall that I've designed specifically for 3D visualization. The pit will be about 18 floors deep by the time it's done and will have all the bedrooms overlooking it through windows.

A nice, colorful place. :)

Oh wow, epic double helix, nice work with that entrance.
Good details in the fort as well, a whole pyramid for a caged creature... :D

@Markavian: Thanks very much! There's still a lot planned for this place.

Actually there's a flying Nightwing chained in the pyramid as well. It tends to stay 1 Z-level above the floor though.

Would be awesome to see some stonesense screenshots of this fortress!

Submitted by: Battlecat - 2011-03-20 to 315 Late Winter

@Zavior: I'm overdue to post some in my story thread in the main forums. I'll do that when the next game version and stonesense versions are both out.

You sir, are stark raving mad. This is wonderful.

Submitted by: LazyLoneLion - 2011-06-29 to 320 Late Winter

It is unbelievable epic project! %)
And -- yes, you are crazy hatter! :)

@Noir, LazyLoneLion: Thanks kindly, I am indeed a bit mad! Glad to have that confirmed. :-)

Submitted by: jaylo - 2011-07-01 to 321 Late Winter

hello I would love to have your saves for this because as you said it had grand plans for 3D visualization and I would like to use stonesense to look at it :)

Submitted by: ajar - 2011-07-04 to 321 Late Winter

A fortress to the epic proportions.

Submitted by: Battlecat - 2011-08-26 to 322 Late Winter

@Jelle: Thanks!

@Jaylo: It's a bit out of date but there is a copy of the Towersoared from 318 available at the file depot.

@ajar: Thanks!

Goddamn gorgeous. Do you ever have problems with your dwarves needing to drink/eat/sleep before they can even get started with a task though?

Submitted by: Battlecat - 2012-03-06 to 323 Late Winter

@Bret: Thanks kindly! Not as much as you might think. While the place looks inefficient, there are a number of back access corridors that are quite direct.
