Massive construction projects continue. The Duke and Duchess are currently locked in their rooms because their insane demands have slain 6 of my dwarves to date.
4 masons starved to death on the northern trade depot access ramp because I didn't notice them. New burial plots are being built in various rooms.
Working on a very long magma pipe in the south end of the fortress to bring magma to the new glassworks in the southeast.
These twin magma tubes wrap around the food stockpiles and are designed to keep the food warm, dry, and safe from vermin. They are completely paved with basalt and green glass all around.
The one unfinished spot in the east will be used to house workings for a magma fountain. This area is not currently designed to be drained but draining it can be accomplished via pumps or a spillway if necessary. I haven't yet decided the best way to fill it, as it's intended to be filled through the Crucible, which doesn't have access to a whole lot of magma since it's only 1 or 2 levels down from the surface of the magma pipe.
I also don't want to let my fire imps out. - Noble Digger

Looks like you could use some bins for your armory... :)

If you look up in the main yard there's an entire stockpile of bins and no more room--that's storing all the low quality iron armor and weapons in addition to crappy trade goods from goblins and such. :X

This fort is massive! It looks very... planned out and organized. Those imps look ready to take out the first legendary weaponsmith they see.

The funny part is that I don't plan my fortresses. I got really lucky that the new additions fit symmetrically on both sides of the for in almost every place.
I work a room at a time, making what I need at a given moment. Right now (I'm in year 206 or 207) I have so many construction projects going on that nothing is being completed, but rather being nudged closer to completion.

How will anyone access your Road of White Shadow?
Also, your "Hot Tubes" have inspired me to make a future fortress with central heating curtousy of our favorite molten rock.

The Road of White Shadow will be flooded, and deep within the earth. It's not meant for travel, just to fool the king into thinking we have a valuable road. I also needed the stone and digging it out gave me quite a few mineral veins.
Stay tuned, I'm working on a highway to cut through the western mountains, removing all the ramps, and ensuring depot access on all approaches via a system of tunnels interconnected with ramps.
