Rhymedmansion - 255 Early Spring by mounf

Map Description:

The end of the first year. The upper (temporary) fort is mostly complete. I've included the first cavern layer as most of our construction will be moving there this year (I hope!)

Point of Interest: Outer compound.

( 255 Early Spring → 258 Late Winter )

The outer compound is designed offer limited protection to our warriors by channeling invaders if we are attacked. - mounf

Bought some anvils did you? Are you using wooden trap components? What weapons are those?

A single iron anvil (I always take this if available, I like to have some basic armor forged by the end of year 1). The cage traps are wooden, weapon traps have 2 (low quality) spiked iron balls or menacing spikes apiece.

Can invaders dig now? I know that it was in development, but I haven't seen them do this, yet.

There's dfhack plugin, "digging invaders". But without it invaders can't dig yet.

I think "channeling attackers" is causing some confusion.. By this I mean forcing them to attack an easily defensible position. Not attackers digging their way into my fort!

I'm looking forward to when attackers do the latter though. It'll need much more flexible defensive design.

Has dfhack been updated to version 0.4x yet?

Submitted by: Sorg - 2014-08-12 to 258 Early Spring

Someone compiled developer branch of DFhack for 0.40.08 and it sort of works.
Check this post for details.

I'm guessing that there isn't a 3D visualizer developed yet.

Submitted by: Sorg - 2014-08-12 to 258 Early Spring

No. If I remember right, Stonesence developer said that he will release it when Toady will stop making new DF releases every couple of days.

Submitted by: Tharis - 2014-08-13 to 258 Early Spring

That is perfectly understandable.

Nice spiral! I also like the idea of the memory hall. It's library-like. I may have to copy it.

Is the entrance littered with glasses and golds?
