I think that might be one of the most dwarfen contraptions I've ever seen the blueprints of.
Behold the Blood Pump the newest innovation in vampire powered architecture!
Code: [Select]
     OOO
OOOO O Xx
   O O O
OO-OOO-O
 O     O
 O|||||O
 
O = wall
- = floor grate
| = upright spike trap
Xx = Screw Pump (X = output)
The plans can be yours for the low low price of everything in your caravan!

Also sigged.

This sounds good,  but you would always have to go back and assign a job to flip the switch to create an open wound. It would be better if you hooked up a repeater to the traps to continually injure the Vampire without micromanagement, with an optional emergency shutoff switch for if the Vampire gets too injured.
If I did that in one of my forts I would forget to turn it off and the vampire would die.
Then I would have to find another one or maybe use a forgotten beast or a demon.

Heh, soon everyone will have a sig or avatar created by me!

Also I think we might have a small zombie problem, at least Mubunfash is there to help us out

Maybe you should give people two year turns until population grows/stabilizes?

something to take into consideration.  We'll see how the fortress looks after he does his first year.

ive gotten in the habit of replacing my chief medical dwarf as soon as he gains any notable skill in diagnosis.
It's really funny watching them do unnecessary surgery because of a wrong diagnosis.
the conditions were bad enough to turn a dwarf who didn't care about anything mad, that's pretty hardcore.

you're just SO quotable.  Like this one. Somewhat tempted to put that in the quotes section.

Ask and you shall receive, the only hitch is your miner is now a sex slave.

The problem with my avatar in it's current state is that it's so bad that you couldn't even see what it actually is in order to accurately improve it. It's actually a miner who lost his ass, beard, and arms in a horrible magma-related incident and had his arms replaced with a wheelbarrow and his ass replaced with a minecart in a effort to make him the ultimate hauler.

Can you guys put the map of the fortress in it's current form up on DF Map Archives? I'm interested in seeing the map in it's entirety.

You are never lost as long as you have a trusty and reliable Compass. Mine kept pointing North, so I just removed the red Needle! Problem solved!

Then I proceeded to pick up the rest of the bunnies, the masterfully crafted bronze statue, and its head. The head will be his trophy... But I need money.

Sure...someone can.  I have to be honest I'm not familiar with using DF Map Archives.  Also parts of the map are currently hidden.  Is there a way to open those up without actually visiting them or hacking?

Btw I didn't build a trap for 2 reasons.

1.  I couldn't due to a lack of man power
2.  Even the most minor trap would likely be game ending at this point and I really don't want to make anyone go through reclaiming this mess...

what about my "I badly draw your reports" thread in dwarf mode discussion :'(

[/shamelessplug]

This fortress is awesome, though. I downloaded the Year 4 save. Someone was immediately stricken by melancholy and it took me quite a while to check out which rooms are safe.

Yeah.  Thus why I didn't make a trap.  In it's current state the fortress didn't need a trap, the whole damn fortress is a trap.

Would cutting off the booze(say, by atomsmasher) and simultaneously lacing the water supply with vamp blood count as a fort destroying trap?

Spoiler: On the other handů (click to show/hide)

I am testing a theory that vamps will not slow down if given a regular blood supply. So, if we send out our vamp masons to build a foodmigrant saving device, our populace could feast regularly.

Edit: Also, could someone please tell me the average fps? I have no stomach for slow games. I might have to skip my turn if it is to slow.
