Salvestone - 228 Early Spring by Drone

Map Description:

Savlestone is going to be an underground city. Not a load of rooms underground, but a city of buildings carved out of the rock. I'll need to do some testing to see what is the best way to dig out large vertical spaces without collapsing them.

Point of Interest: Entrance

This took a whole season of digging and building before I even started underground. Theres about 10 Z-levels of nothing but downward spiraling ramped staircases, so I skipped them out. - Drone

This sounds very interesting to me as there are a lot of ways you could go with this.

I had no idea water could freeze in the chasm. Looks like I'll need to rethink a strategy for one of my winter forts.

Build a pool of magma underneath the constructed sections of channel that freeze. ;)

Yeah, putting magma under it, or casting the actual thing out of magma would cause it not to freeze (I think water only freezes if it is outside or under a construction)

So how come coming across garnierite was fortunate considering the lack of wood? What does garnierite allow you to do?

It meant I could make bins and barrels out of nickel, rather than the wood I didn't have.
