Steppecastles - 1056 Mid Summer by Lightning4

Map Description:

Another update from Metropolis Steppecastles. Little to report, other than some horrible, horrible luck with moods always wanting glass, and the goblin siege camped out a good distance from my fortress.

Still some major projects left to do:
Smoothing of the fortress.
Removal of Stones. This will take a very, very long time.
25-tile room for every dwarf, specially tailored 25-tile rooms for the legendaries/artifact makers.

Edit: Ah damn, forgot to remove the -region1 from the end :/

Point of Interest: Useless Farm

Tried growing crops here. It's a mountain. It failed. - Lightning4

Looking good so far, if you want to avoid dwarves drowning set all the pools as restricted traffic areas, then they'll go around.

That's a cool layout, I like the diamon rooms, its a pitty you didn't put an arched ceiling on the floor above as well, but maybe thats a waste of space. I like the spacing between the different areas, the lightshaft idea is good as well.

Yeah, thatguy, I already did that. Don't want any more dwarves getting the same fate :P

Its masterful work so far, with excellent attention to detail on each of the floors. Those lucky dwarves :). The open shaft leading down through the fort is a noteable feature.
