My largest and most successful megaproject yet, still in mid-progress. It's inspired by the barber pole look. The end result will be a swirl of water and magma rotating down and around the entire outside of the fort. As I wanted dwarves to remain fully productive during sieges, I've needed to mine out the fortress from the mountain, and now nearly the entire fortress is considered underground despite standing a full eight z levels above ground level!
About half way down the excavations I realised I could put that annoying last tile on the edge of the map to use by engraving it all before digging further down. So now each layer down is somewhat a record of things that have happened. Most is repititious (elected mayors and founded organisations and the fort), but some are bound to have unique events from that year. Like rings of a log or the layers of earth in geology telling a tale of the ages. - FacesOfMu

Do you only see a blank space?

I love the engraved wall on the map edge, nice touch.

Thanks! I only caught onto this idea about half way down, so there's a few levels there that are blank. I could still put them to use if I wanted to create scaffolding along the wall for the engravers.
