A handful of long, slow, fps-dragging years later, Moonsyrups reaches a new point of maturity.
Giant Cave Spiders are now housed in the spider lair temple, the entire magmaworks is completed and -damn near- ready to turn on (i'm replacing some of the floodgates and mechanisms with iron ones in places that don't really need them, but better safe than sorry).
Check out the POIs for stuff new in this release. Note that the entire fortress has been gutted of Basalt and Alunite doors and these are being trash-compacted in favor of Obsidian and Iron masterworks by Art and Chataya, the legendary Mason and Blacksmith.
By the time magma arrives here, it has traveled a long distance from the bottom level of the volcano and up a pumping shaft, down the Magmazines, out the Magmazine pumps and up the map a considerable distance. This is the final stretch: Magma here is pumped up by 5 Windmills in the main courtyard and injected into the iron-barred guts of the magma forge. :) - Noble Digger

Holy huge embark Batman!
What FPS do you get? I'm seriously impressed by you CPU if you get good FPS on this map.
Really cool map, though, I really like the winding tunnel from the cliff face to the glacierside castle.

You know, this fortress was intended to be my "final DF40 fortress blowout" before Toady finishes the next release... I chose this large embark thinking I'd dick around a bit but it ended up getting good FPS. I have an Intel Core 2 Duo with 2 gigs of ram and it runs smoothly at 35+, slowing into the low 20s when dumping is going on. I haven't started moving liquids at all, which is going to CHOKE it.
The fort is playable despite its size because most of that size isn't being used for anything. :D
