Fire of Ice - 315 Mid Autumn by joshdw4

Map Description:

First time back in DF after a long break. Wanted to try something new and go for some interesting architecture. Here is Fire of Ice, named for the symbol at it's entrance (sorry, no ice, but Fire of Water didn't sound as cool).

Beneath is a towercap farm. I'm trying to get it to the point where I can sustain myself without sending my woodcutter above ground, but MAN that is hard.

The population is capped at 50 for now to allow my towercap farm to grow. I'm also trying to get forging skills up and create some valuable furniture.

Love your entrance, were you going for the Yin yang look? or was it unintentional :P.

Also whats the tileset your using?

I didn't want to make the entrance that way but the dwarves did it while I wasn't looking (hehe... completely intentional to the point that I had it planned from the moment I embarked... reason for the name).

The tileset is Guybrush 1280x400, got it from the DF Wiki.

For a decent supply of tower caps (say, enough for smelting charcoal for steel), you'll probably want something like the total area you have dug out now. By 12 levels, one for each season of the three ish years that they take to mature.

Well, that's the amount i had in my fort back in .39e. Seemed to keep me going, though i didn't have it for more than about 4 years.
