Tomeholes - 1060 Mid Autumn by Zaltanek

Map Description:

This map started with only the brook and and a few small pools. I wanted to see what it would take to create a reservoir. It turned out to be far more difficult that I thought to generate enough water to flood the area.

Point of Interest: Pump system for the aquaducts

This pump system feeds the water to the the various aquaducts. There were two other pump systems at this location but they were dismantled. The brook does not provide enough volume of water for what I really wanted to do. I should reduce the number of pumps on the system, but that would require I shut them down for longer than I wanted to.
The left aquaduct is for the waterfalls that fall through the legendary meeting room.
The middle aquaduct was orginally created to fill the plains north of the city. It was later modified to fill a pressure reservoir.
The right aquaduct was an attempt to force more water into the flood plain. Unfortunately there was not enough water volume in the brook to allow this to happen. - Zaltanek

mmmm water projects. I've been trying different ways to get more pressure and volume out of a brook. So far I've been able to get more pressure.
-Set the pumps one space above the path they'll be filling with water.
-Make sure the drop back down into the channel (below the pumps) is only one space deep otherwise pressure wont transfer.
-Water will fill the 2-level space immediately and thrust water due to 7/7 water pressure transfer.

The more the water backs up, the more pressure will be transfered.

Thanks, will try that on another map. I opened the levers to the pressure reservoir and it worked like I had hoped. There was enough water in the reservoir to flood 1 zlevel of the plain. Unfortunately the FPS dropped to 2 so I think I may abandon this fortress. In order to finish the flooding I would need to refill the pressure reservoir which will take days at 2 fps. It took around 8+ hours at 6 fps.

Problems?

Do you only see a blank space?
