Mountain-Banners, after the seventh and final year of the great Bridge-building challenge. The points of interest, if seen in order starting with "0. The sheer...", give you a guided tour of the fortress and its construction.
Bridge-building challenge thread (page five, includes 3D images):
Story: "A Journey to Mountain-Banners"
Our bridge is supported by both stone and steel, the latter in the form of a great cable stretching from map edge to map edge (actually, as close as the game allows to the edge), and passing directly through all three towers. The main chain is held in place by sixteen cables attaching it to the bridge between towers, placed in four pairs to the north and as many to the south.
We have no magma, and therefore the 208 steel chains and 198 steel blocks required for the cable, the columns, the ramps, and the ramp-support walls together required 1218 units of fuel, which meant the consumption of every bit of bituminous coal a diligent search of all large bodies of chalk on the map could find, the clear-cutting of every tree on the map (twice), and a fair amount of lignite. The total number of jobs - hauling, burning, smelting, forging, and placing combined - came to 4567, not counting the scaffolding that we had to place and take down (precisely, 5 hauls, 2.25 make coke/charcoal, 2 smelts, 1 forge, and 1 place for each block or chain). - Fedor
