Rithmesir-the_adequate_library - 251 Late Winter by mounf

Map Description:

A comunity/story fort aiming to build a library and fort across all 3 cavern levels. I've not explored the library mechanics before.

The end of year 2 - The mayor is a were-tapir, but otherwise everyone has survived.

Point of Interest: Were-Mayors quarters

This section of the cavern is now secure. The lake is slowly draining (It's in the way of the tower construction).

North is the were-mayors quarters. Of course we would get an highly skilled socialiser, manager, organiser and broker in the first large migrant wave who would get mauled by a were-tapir before he could even get to the fortress and would then be promptly elected mayor.

He's now got "secure" quarters in this cavern. Where he can focus on keeping our stock lists up to date and doing some engraving of his room for occupational therapy.

It's working out quite well. The only problem is timing the visits of representatives to avoid any... unpleasant incidents. - mounf

A side view POI might be appropriate. 34z library tower...It's a grand plan, but I imagine all the channeling leads to fps loss without retire-unretire (which would throw about books).

In visualizers, 1z rooms feel cramped, and 2z feel like normal - but then, when *you* make a fortress, you want to aim above normal. Good work!

As a side note, the animal trap could be built, or perhaps placed in minecart on weight-sensitive pressure plate.

That spinning rampway is pretty neat to look at going down.

An issue I have with libraries in vanilla raws though is that each bookcase holds 100 books. Given that each discovery is years-long effort, a mammoth library with all the learned knowledge of the world, containing four hundred books....can fit in four tiles.

Thankfully, one is able to mod their size, or even smaller varieties. Though a single-book "pulpit" bookcase greatly resembles a pedastal.
