Prospecting for Adamantine by neptunepink

Movie Description:

This movie presents a simple, dwarvenly, method for locating Adamantine, (and possibly other features) and, more importantly, verifies that cats can be destroyed with magma.

A magma pipe on the surface is not necessarily necessary. The technique could probably be applied using magma pools inside caverns, or from the surface of the magma sea.

The only important thing is that the cat must be dropped from a height onto the magma, otherwise, it will burn up before beginning the hundred-z-level plummet.

Another use for cats.

I think it is possible to discover the sea with just something falling in, such as a construction supported by a pillar. But cats is obviously better.

In the future, please set your MAX_FPS to 100 before recording movies.

Ah, sorry, totally forgot about that. Could set the playback frame rate to 500 or something, which is what I do when not just using the slider manually.

Perhaps Baughn/Toady could have the FPS auto-limited when recording.


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