Rootportals - 267 Early Winter by Priz

Map Description:

Rootportals is my second attempt at a "mega project", after my last one was killed by a modding disaster (oops). The fort focuses on horizontal expansion and leaving as much of the natural terrain intact as possible.

Point of Interest: Overview

A bird's eye view of the fort in it's 4th or 5th year. This is the "main" surface level, where most of my constructions will end up being built. - Priz

Geat job so far. I hope to build something like this soon.

Thanks! This is my third fort thus far, so I feel pretty safe in saying that if I can do it, literally anyone can.

Mhm. What kind of embark location did you look for?

I'm playing 40d, and don't use any of the handy tools for it beyond the wiki, so I mostly guess at where a good spot is, and the more biomes the better. I always try to have a few features - this embark was supposed to have an underground river, some magma, etc. etc., but I apparently didn't pay enough attention and ended up with a chasm and no metal deposits :s. At least I have lots of multi-colored stone. If I could do it again, I'd probably go for limestone at the risk of losing such a nice valley to work with and having no interesting features.
