Sizzledlanterns - 152 Early Spring by Jebraltix

Map Description:

Possibly the most beautiful map ever, underground pool, brook, underground river, magma pool, and a chasm. Unfortunately no iron but that might just be a blessing in disguise so that I dont have to mess around to make my dwarves use adamantine armour. But I do have copper so that could last me until I have my armoursmith trained up so much as that I can get masterpiece adamtine armour. Just using reveal temporarily so I'm not saving this part, I saved it before I used reveal. I was also experiencing problems with manytowers, the game kept locking up and I had kept loosing all of the stuff that I had done. I'm really in it for the long haul on this one. Plus if you read the engravings on the adamantine it's amusing.

EDIT: Made the mistake of misreading the embark map, thought I didn't have any iron, turns out I have more than enough.

Point of Interest: Wagon

Out of harms way, thankfully. - Jebraltix

A castle compound build into the side of a mountain, excellent positioning. What population are you aiming for?

I've started moving away from stack designed forts and tried to spread out and wide more, I get the feeling floors aren't far apart at all.

Well I've taken a different approach to this fort due to the adamantine, One dwarf has one labor and one labor only. Right now I'm aiming for probaly 200, but I might have to lessen that because of the amount of creatures in the chasm, or I could just rush in there with an army of champion crossbowmen and hope for the best. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by stack designed forts though.

oh wow! i would love it if you could uppload the world and a picture of the embark site somewhere!

I honestly have no clue how to upload the world, but I'll figure it out. As for the picture, I'll do my best.

To find the seed go into the folder where you exported the images to, and open the notepad file called sizzledlanterns-param-regionX-XXXX-XXXX.txt
This should contain the world seed and history seed.
I don't think it tells you where you embarked though.

Hey Jebraltix, by stack fortresses I mean having a central stairwell and everything is a layer centered off the stairwell. I don't like the idea of having a central shaft into my fort, I prefer to have deeper levels and ornate staircases that gradually wind down.

Entirely due to personal preference.
That and dwarves slipping and falling 20 levels.

Oh, I definitely like a central staircase more than a 1 level fort, I tried having a flat fortress about 2 forts ago, didnt like it very much. I more enjoy taking advantage of the z-axis.
