Dikelocks, Ezum's Vengeance - 133 Early Spring by RatOfWisdom

Map Description:

Yes, it's a goddamn railgun. I am not an electrical engineer, nor do I aspire to be, but this kind of thing interests me greatly and come on railguns are awesome.

Therefore, if you're going to tell me I did it horribly horribly wrong and should be shot for my horrendous bastardization of science, that's cool, but do realize I wasn't trying to build a working railgun (electricity isn't even implemented) but rather something completely awesome and ridiculous in scale that resembles one as accurately as possible.

(This disclaimer inspired by the fine folks of the #bay12games IRC. :V)

Point of Interest: Generators

Ah, if only DF featured electricity. 15 3x3x3 blocks of magnetite mechanisms (you're supposed to imagine a really big spinning magnet rather than 27 separate ones) surrounded by copper walls. - RatOfWisdom

Uhh, I presume you used magnetite and other conductive materials in its construction?

Indeed. I'll add POIs and stuff detailing what's what =)

Epic - I think I'm beginning to understand now...
