...You have ONE engineer? How does that work?

Six dabbling mechanics, one crippled professionnal mechanic.

Early Autumn, Year 6, Kelnimar

In Spring I welcomed the elves with Girlinhat's diplomacy machine.



Results were mild. One dead, a few wounded with one activation of the machine. Bah.

Now for the finished minecart active denial system...

z0



(starting location being that 3x3 set of rollers in the northeast, the whole thing functions clockwise. The lever for the defense system floodgates is at z-1.

z-1



So yeah. It doesn't seem to work, at least not as I wanted. It starts well and quick, and then slows down and stops at the last roller station before the start (the one at the east of the workshops).. Both for push and ride options. So it's pretty unusable for goblins.

 I have no idea what is the problem, rollers are in the correct direction and well powered and active though ! Especially the last roller which doesn't seem to pick up minecarts and accelerate them.

Using the thing is quite easy - you open the floodgates via lever at z-1, wait till a dwarf picks up the minecart and puts it on the track stop, and wait till a dwarf pushes it.

I also had giant kea problems (they killed one of my mechanics and stole minecarts), and a berserk mood clothier which I totally forgot and which I dogpiled with other dwarves via military, worked fine and the berserk died without harming other people durably. So I built a small basic graveyard at z-6.



Final update, have noo idea how to fix that thing so I'm releasing two seasons in advance. Next player can fiddle with it and try to fix it... or just wall off the whole fort.

Maybe pass me over for now? I don't want to abandon this fort completely, but I don't feel like playing DF right now and I'd rather not just phone my turn in and waste everyone's time.

Got your message. Need to postpone ATM, as I'm still in my turn in Deathgate and do not have enough time to run both at the same time.

Is your plan really to flush water into hell, and have the CARP marines fight them without threat of flame or disease?  If so, you are awesome, and one of the greatest DF military visionaries I've seen yet ( not that I've seen that many, or any, for that matter )

If my turn comes on Sunday or later, I will need to be skipped. I will be gone for a week.

If you can finish your turn before Sunday then I'd suggest you take it now.  We're skipping people frequently, and you'd be the next option so go ahead if you're able.

Maybe you can manage to fix my minecart defense system, although it may be a bug.

Also I forgot to mention, I created a burrow named "Main Fortress" which has currently all dwarves in it and which limits then to NOT go on rollers if possible, to prevent important losses.

I'll see if all rollers are in the correct direction.

Edit : Oh wait, I see what is wrong. I didn't built tracks behind rollers. Seems kinda obvious, but I just didn't thought of it.

Well I'm going to fix that ! And maybe upload another save, if tahujdt didn't start already.

Edit 2 : OK, it does work with tracks under rollers, although I see a system with minecarts bouncing back between two stations as far more effective than mine is for now, but that would require a large rebuild of minecarts.

Edit 3 : seems a group of rhesus macaques just went into the defense system at the wrong time... all crippled ! *laughs evilly*

I have started, but I'll just apply your fix.
