You could make a new switch in a secure location, and deconstruct the old one. Or, alternatively, you could dig a ditch around it with a bridge going for it, like

Basically, ramps up at the east and west edges, a bridge, and a pit.

A small warning: If the crusher goes of while the dwarves are in there, they will all instantly die. You may want to keep a chained animal or two near the lever, so that a kobold doesn't sneak in and smash the crap out of everyone. Also, dwarves gone mad may flip levers (I think, but I'm not sure), so you may want security on the lever.

I'm using 7z for the saves because it's convenient. Get 7-Zip here if you don't have it and you wanna use the save:

Those siege defenses are epic. Those ballistas are kinda hazardous, though.

I had a volcano/chasm combo recently. It was a lot like this one. I like it a lot.

The animal hole's been blowing up? Are you sure there ain't hostiles in there killing the non hostiles?

For some reason, this isn't working for me.

My advice for obsidian? Floodgate system (or pump system). Put a small pit for lava to be stored, and open a floodgate or start a pump with the lava. Once the pit is filled, repeat with water instead (you'll probably want a different pump/floodgate for this, by the way). This results in a pit full of obsidian. Dig in.

Personal advice: Smooth areas around it if it's underground, so that you can tell which walls to dig out if you accidentally overflow with lava/water. At least the walls. (You may engrave, but it's probably a death wish.

I've had goblins survive 5-Z's. If you put weapon traps below the fall, or if they have a while to go, they won't do much harm afterward. If you don't, be prepared to have panicking peasants running from unconscious goblins. One of my forts had this all screwed up, and near-dead gobbos would terrorize the peasants. Until they were killed by dogs.

Why not? Free siege protection. I'm gonna try it if I get a good chance.

I modded out their alcohol dependence, and increased their speed. Then I used Tweak to lower the cap on starting population. I followed it up with Dwarf Companion for skills.

One thing Ancienttraded has: Secure water supply. Food? Who needs food? We fish (often too much), and farm, but I doubt it'll be enough at this level for the entire end-game. I'm digging out the entire level just beneath the surface. Why?

Because I can.

Huge excavated areas, no supports, buildings above the ground. I think that if you turned cave-ins on, you'd wind up with a watery, bloody puddle about 30 feet underground or so, with wreckage piling up to just about surface level in some spots.

EDIT: Actually, nothing happened when I tested it. You'll just have to use your imagination.
