Clamlips - 21 Early Spring by galaban

Map Description:

This is Clamlips, nine years after embarkation.

This is a historical record showing the progress of the fortress. The only new developments are that the first mural project (at the bottom of the arena) is now complete. Also, the Grand Mural Project has begun with the digging of the room.

SELECT poitab.poiid AS default_poi, UNIX_TIMESTAMP(maptab.dateSubmitted) as dateSubmittedUnix FROM dfma_pointsofinterest AS poitab LEFT JOIN dfma_maps_v2 AS maptab ON maptab.mapid=poitab.mapid WHERE maptab.fortressName = 'Clamlips' AND ( poitab.mapid = '6070' OR ( poitab.startYear > 0 AND ( poitab.endYear = 0 OR (poitab.endYear * 100 + poitab.endSeason) >= '2101' ) AND ( (poitab.startYear * 100 + poitab.startSeason) <= '2101' ) ) ) ORDER BY IF(maptab.default_poi=poitab.poiid,1,0) DESC, IF(maptab.mapYear>'21',0,maptab.mapYear) DESC LIMIT 1

Point of Interest: Grand Mural / Mosaic Project

( 19 Mid Winter → 22 Early Summer )

This is my Grand Mosaic Project.

I just picked a picture from the internet of some mountains, converted it into colors that would work with DF (and the stone available), and just kind of guessed and checked on the placement of each block.

The mural is made entirely from constructed floor, roads, floor grates, and one-tile bridges. Oh, and there's a few upright spikes thrown in.

The stone is cobaltite (dark blue), microcline (light blue/cyan), schist (brownish), green glass (green), mica (dark gray), felsite (light gray), and alunite (white).

The most time consuming aspect of this mural was making all the green glass floor grates and blocks for all the green. The most challenging was mapping a picture to the DF world and trying to choose what constructions/buildings to use. - galaban

You could have done a swordmaster, with all that microcline.

You can download the compressed map file: 2009-06/galaban-Clamlips-region3-21-0.fdf-map but you will need the .NET version of SL's DF Map Compressor to convert to the .PNG image format.
