They said I was mad when I told them I could encase an entire goblin siege in solid ice! Mad!
THE single most genious plan EVER devised by dwarven engineers.
Fucking woah. That's awesome.
Nice! Was the goblin path not subterranean?
axus, not by the looks of it. In the first frames you can see 'sky' above the channel. I guess the water freezed instantly when it was exposed to outsideness.
Yeah, that entire channel is exposed. Well, parts of it got ice over them afterwards, but it still counts as above ground.
Rather critically, the notches south of the channel are still underground. If they weren't, the water would freeze there and be all useless.
can it be used repeatedly, like if you mine out the stuff?
I'm engraving about this right now. "This is an engraving of goblins and ice. The goblins are surrounded by the ice."
This gives me a brilliant idea. A ceiling connected to the outside and supported by a support connected to a lever. Goblins go under, Ceiling drops, water goes in, freezes. It was like the goblins were never there. Although now that I think of it that is just an overly complicated version of this.
Jebraltix - since when has something being overly complicated been a drawback?
Goblin IceLollies anyone?
i can imagine looking into the ice and seeing a confused looking goblin entombed in ice. Then it gets obliterated by a miner restting it.
Now you can build walls with the resulting ice!
Would be great to have an ice fortress with the bodies of the fallen showcased within the walls!
"ice fortress with the bodies of the fallen showcased within the walls!"
So do the goblin corpses actually show up in the ice spaces afterwards, or do they just vanish? I'd love to do something like this and end up with ice goblin statues.
Ha. Ha. Ha.
It reminds me of the cave scene from Ice Age...
Obviously, this is accomplished by allowing water into an exposed space, so do not the design. Re-arm by ice removal. What I got out of it is that using a retractable bridge or (to use up mechanisms) a set of pit traps, you could do the same thing to fish using the water already present. This makes norther ocean fortresses all the more usefull. Now to set it for "carp".
Oh... my... Armok...
WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS?!?
Couldn't you put a retractable bridge where the floor is so that you could just reset it with one lever and still get that nice comforting sound of ice breaking?
Sauber: retracting a bridge out from underneath the "freeze zone" wouldn't do anything at all, since the ice would still be attached to the walls.
Problem with resetting is the miners risk being frozen by the residue water in the non-freezing part of trap.

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