Cat Drowning by goffrie

Movie Description:

8 cats drowned.

This is still the same drowning trap as in my previous video, except this time I have actual test subjects!

Nice trap. I'm considering building something similar for my next fortress (my current one has its entrance bridge directly across an open magma pipe, so I tend to just retract the bridges and drop entire sieges into the magma).

Unrelated question - what's the "River jumpstarter"?

The river jumpstarter is a lever that activates a pump that takes little bit of water out of the river at the source. Rivers apparently shut down after they haven't produced any water for a while (e.g. when dammed) and the water level has to decrease near the source to get them going again. It's the one that I ordered to be pulled twice.

(edited for clarity)

Interestingly enough, my fortress has a lever which performs the exact same function on my underground river, though it uses a door instead of a pump. I considered putting one in my last fortress (to restart the brook), but got tired of the lag.


Do you only see a blank space instead of a play button?
