Towersoared - 310 Late Winter by Battlecat

Map Description:

Towersoared is a fortress with grand plans for 3D visualization. More can be found in the story thread here.

At the end of 310, excavation of the dining hall is completed and it has been formally dedicated as a room. Still a lot of cleanup work to do though.

Point of Interest: Future Entrance Hall

This corridor will eventually become the main entrance to the fortress. Excavation was just barely completed before the end of year. Smoothing this level is not a priority at the moment.
All the sand will eventually be paved over. The designations to the north and south of the hall are the foundations of towers that will overlook the entrance area. - Battlecat

nice fort battlecat, two questions what tile-set do you use, its very similar to the mayday one but i see some differences its pretty cool, and second whats the giant pit outside your fort for or going to be used for in the future

Actually the tileset is maday as far as I know. I'm using his more complete one, without the background fill. There have been a few glitches in recent updates though, so a couple of things don't look the same as I remember. I'm considering changing to a different tileset at some point in the future.

The giant pit out front is going to be a dining hall that I've designed specifically for 3D visualization. The pit will be about 18 floors deep by the time it's done and will have all the bedrooms overlooking it through windows.

Oh wow, epic double helix, nice work with that entrance.
Good details in the fort as well, a whole pyramid for a caged creature... :D

@Markavian: Thanks very much! There's still a lot planned for this place.

Actually there's a flying Nightwing chained in the pyramid as well. It tends to stay 1 Z-level above the floor though.

Would be awesome to see some stonesense screenshots of this fortress!

@Zavior: I'm overdue to post some in my story thread in the main forums. I'll do that when the next game version and stonesense versions are both out.

hello I would love to have your saves for this because as you said it had grand plans for 3D visualization and I would like to use stonesense to look at it :)

Submitted by: ajar - 2011-07-04 to 321 Late Winter

A fortress to the epic proportions.

Submitted by: Battlecat - 2011-08-26 to 322 Late Winter

@Jelle: Thanks!

@Jaylo: It's a bit out of date but there is a copy of the Towersoared from 318 available at the file depot.

@ajar: Thanks!

Goddamn gorgeous. Do you ever have problems with your dwarves needing to drink/eat/sleep before they can even get started with a task though?

Submitted by: Battlecat - 2012-03-06 to 323 Late Winter

@Bret: Thanks kindly! Not as much as you might think. While the place looks inefficient, there are a number of back access corridors that are quite direct.
