Muckgrotto - Martin - 108 Early Spring by martin

Map Description:

Submission for DFM2 - Muckgrotto survival challenge

Point of Interest: Project 2 - Central Tower

At the ground level, the central tower serves as a critical defensive element to the fortress. Completely inaccessible from this level and with a 3-wide magma moat around it, marksdwarves have their way with any ninja spawns that should occur in the central area. Prior to the collapse, the only bridge to the central area was to the north and ninja spawns in the south would walk within range of the marksdwarves. The 2nd level stores trade items and gives protected access to the fresh water supply.

A 2nd defensive terrace is on level 19 where dwarves can fire down on attackers and where the tower narrows. Originally planned to reach the top of the map, the tower sits incomplete due to lack of time. - martin

No, I can't seem to get the visualizers to work. The saves are uploaded and I'd appreciate if anyone can run the final fort through one of them.

Indeed a suberb fort!

But what are the "downramps" in the middle of the sky on level 16?

Submitted by: martin - 2009-09-28 to 108 Early Spring

The ramps are a bug. When you collapse a level, the down ramps from the level above don't collapse with it, they just hang there. I forgot to clean that up when I did the final collapse.
