PantherPulleys - 1059 by UncleJam

Map Description:

So I now enter year 9. I think I'm running out of things to do? I expect an even bigger goblin siege this year, but the fort has good defenses now. I might have to build a bridge over the northern lava channel though if I need wood.

Point of Interest: Last Chance Hideout

If the fort ever goes haywire I constructed a hideout accessible only by one bridge, that is triggered by a lever in the hideout. Not sure what to put in there other than bed or food, but maybe I can truck water over to set up an emergency farm, and maybe some workshops as well. - UncleJam

I thought tower caps couldn't grow on smoothed floors

UncleJam, what year should it be? I can update it. User system coming soon - you'll be able to sign up and edit your own maps.

Slartibartfast, tower caps can't grow on smoothed floors, but the tile probably wasn't smoothed before the towercap began to grow.

It's supposed to be 1056. I thought TowerCaps could only grow on one side of the river. Seems I was wrong. I've doored off most of the problem flood areas to reduce this now. Thanks Markavian

I so have to get myself some ballistas, I'm stuck with catapults at the moment.

Submitted by: UncleJam - 2007-06-30 to 1058

Yeah, the ballistas rock, never used catapults before. The arrows fly until off map no matter what organic they hit. A word of warning: The first shot was incredibly lucky apparently, I fired off 30 more and only killed 2 more goblins. The arrows enjoy veering off course.

Do you have... plate mail armour for all of your military dwarves? A clear glass dome in honour of some legendary dwarf? Rubies and precious gems engraved on each of your weapons?

No? Then there is still work to be done!

Sorry to be sarcastic, but did you every think to either chop down the tree or dig a hole through a wall? One would think that dwarven lives would matter a little more than this...

Probably, the dwarf went in there while he was not watching, the tower-cap grew while he was not watching, and the dwarf died while he was not watching.

Tower caps can grow to "the tree line" ... which the wiki says is 110 units from the cliff face.

Yeah, its hard to notice as you scroll back and forth trying to keep most of your hundred plus dwarfs happy. The only reason I noticed this was from the red background 'death' tile. I ended up fixing all the flooding problems in the dorms later on.
