Sigunlokum - 1065 by puke

Map Description:

This is the Mountainhome Sigunlokum "Tourspears" in its final moments. The royal mausoleum is not yet completed, but the King is mandating Adamantite items, so this is as big finished as its going to get.

This fortress was an experiment in path-optimization. It could have been slightly improved by opening up a few more doorways and halls, but there just wasnt room between the mountain features its squatting it. Ultimatly, I'm pretty happy with it, and I think some of the visual touches are nice - especially the road, entrance, bridges, and multi-color workshops and dining rooms.

I'm not totally happy with how the catacombs turned out, but leaving them how they are is better than memroy-hack-editing or save-scumming. I think some of the flaws and non-symetric bits are what give this one its particular charm. its an honest fortress with no abuses. note that theres not even any noble-murder-rooms.

Point of Interest: Color-Coded Workshops

I tried to make workshops out of interesting colors, by using different types of metal or stone or glass.

With the different colored craftshops, i set their preferences to allow different skills of dwarfs. that way i could easily see which shop should be assigned which job. - puke

Wow. I mean really....wow. Yes, this entry-way is truly of the finest craftsmanship. I only wonder how many 3 liter bottles of Mountain Dew had to die to bring us this truly glorious sight.

Very cool.

Also, very stylish tile set. Where can I get it?

To SoulSkorpion, this is the Herbdog 16x16 set. I like its chisled stone look, and that it manages to look classy while still preserving the ASCII.

Guybrush has an updated version of the Herbdog 16x16 that I think looks a little better. Theyre both available on the wiki.
