Tomeholes - 1060 Mid Autumn by Zaltanek

Map Description:

This map started with only the brook and and a few small pools. I wanted to see what it would take to create a reservoir. It turned out to be far more difficult that I thought to generate enough water to flood the area.

Point of Interest: Main Entrance

This is the main entrance and where the dwarves initially started. I have been planning on making it more defensible, but goblin attacks have been nonexistant. I have kill a titan and captured a hydra.
Due to all the moving water my framerate drops to around 6. - Zaltanek

mmmm water projects. I've been trying different ways to get more pressure and volume out of a brook. So far I've been able to get more pressure.
-Set the pumps one space above the path they'll be filling with water.
-Make sure the drop back down into the channel (below the pumps) is only one space deep otherwise pressure wont transfer.
-Water will fill the 2-level space immediately and thrust water due to 7/7 water pressure transfer.

The more the water backs up, the more pressure will be transfered.

It's in use on

Thanks, will try that on another map. I opened the levers to the pressure reservoir and it worked like I had hoped. There was enough water in the reservoir to flood 1 zlevel of the plain. Unfortunately the FPS dropped to 2 so I think I may abandon this fortress. In order to finish the flooding I would need to refill the pressure reservoir which will take days at 2 fps. It took around 8+ hours at 6 fps.

Do you only see a blank space?
