Firegear - 1053 Late Spring by Markavian

Map Description:

Ocean fort underconstruction! Perhaps oceangear would have been a more appropriate name for this map, but that was a previous, failed, undertaking.

Through the last year the pumps have done their duty, a seawall has been constructed, and an entrance down to the lower levels dug out. The windmills on the shore have been dismantled and the area around the beach is being tidied up, eventually so that the the dwarves can be moved into their permanent residences out in the ocean.

Point of Interest: Ocean Entrance

( 1053 Late Spring → onwards )

The ocean entrance, built by draining the ocean out and walling in the gap, before digging down, now stands sturdily above the surface. Waves this far out don't cause problems like construction by the beach, but the foundations of a protective wall fence off some of the elements. - Markavian

I love the way you just move in and merge fortress and landscape so fluidly. This is such a unique layout for a fortress; I'm always building stuffy little square ones, so you have my applause and admiration for taking on something so unique.

On a side note, what is the tileset you're using for this? I don't think I've seen it before.

Bedroom layout is stylish.

Hey Chayfox, the tileset is my own, available off my user page on the wiki or from the graphic tilesets page with a revised version of Sphr's object graphics for 12x12.
