I love it. Freestanding mountains separate from ranges are always great spots to build.

Holy shit, ninja dragon.

I kind of want to point out what a risk of a cave-in you took with a channel designation like that. You really only needed a single line to block the source.

Still, pretty cool - a damming method I'd never considered for a UG river.

I don't mean incidental FPS from causing something to happen, I mean active FPS from the usual activity of the fort. The title is hyperbole, admittedly, but doing the math in my head I think if the video's operating at 100FPS for four seconds, that puts my framerate there at about 0.11 frames a second. If we're talking incidental FPS, in this same fort I dug out and collapsed first 20 layers of dug out stone in a somewhere-around-150-by-100 space and then another 24 later, not to mention the other digging I've done. I'd guess I've dug out about 800,000 stone on the map altogether, most of which I subsequently destroyed. The collapse for the first one took maybe a little over an hour? It's been a few months and I'm not sure anymore. But for quite a while I thought I broke my computer.

The point is, FPS while actively running a fort is different than FPS from doing something big like controlled cave-ins (which, on a large scale, slows down everyone's computers - search Shurikane's Project Cube for the most intense of these), and this video relates to the former.

Huh... Thanks, I'll try that out. I'm going to feel extremely stupid if that's what was causing the slowdown :

Ed- Well, I got FPS up to 1 (which is actually a lot), but in real time they move a bit slower without the speed boost. I'm gonna stick with SPEED:0

Just did the math, and 900 seconds of real-time translated to 4 seconds of video means my DF is running 225x slower than normal speed.

Jesus. Well, I'm impressed.
