Wheeledadmired - 506 Mid Spring by sirbobsalot

Map Description:

Ground level of the pyramid completed. It looked a lot bigger on paper.

Point of Interest: Test Reactor

Played around with self-powering waterwheels a little bit and found a compact layout I liked. Stupidly easy to get going, don't have to micro-manage the amount of water that starts in the bottom reservoir, and generates an excess 163 power units for practically nothing.

Granted, it's not the most efficient design in terms of power output and amount of parts required. I like it though, because the final product looks like a little generator. =P

This is the design I'll be using in the pyramid, See: "Power Plant (North)" POI. - sirbobsalot

It's nice. Goblins troubling you much?

I've got invasions turned off for now. My first fort in the new version was another surface castle fort, and the new military system was just giving me fits. For example, a squad of 10 clad in full iron plate and wielding swards/maces beat on one alligator for three seasons before the poor creature finally managed to stagger off the edge of the map. Sieges would probably be a bit more FUN than I can handle right now. =P

Once the pyramid is secure and less of a construction dwarf ambush deathtrap I'll go in and turn invaders back on.

Heh. I was wondering where you'd put the bodies. :)

Mmm, have you considered atomsmahing the vermin corpses? Just a thought.

Set one up last night and it did the trick nicely. =)

That hack you used cleans away bloody tile. If there is even a 1/1 of water that is bloodied, dfhack won't remove the property of bloodied from the water on the tile. So any dwarfs who step through the water will continue trailing it everywhere.

Hope you don't mind if I steal your idea for the workshop pits, they're just that cool.

As for the failed moods...
The furnace operator might have wanted a workshop outside of burrows when it was off limits.
The bonecrafter might have wanted a specific item that was forbiden.
I'm not sure about the glassmaker.
