Thanks, always nice to hear. :)

I agree with how the missing floors came to be.  It's just insanely...weird.  And breaks a bunch of crap, which is annoying.

And, yes.  That IS a ton of goblinite.  Keep in mind only the iron survives in the magma.  Bronze/Copper/etc. can only be collected from the OMG mine-cart run itself.  And there's still plenty of it.  There's... well... not much I can do with all that tin.  Currently I'm using it to build up blacksmithing with doors and stuff, but... um... yeaaaaahhhh...  And I thought the cassiterite was copper at first, brain fart.  We dug a bunch.

You CAN go through SMR, but it costs 1 dwarf / level.  I'm pretty confident as to exactly where the spire is, and my next episode will have me prepping for that eventually.

You're right about the 5/7 pocket.  I was just being overly anal about doing it without mistakes.  Drunken Dwarves are painful to keep straight.  Just had a broken spine from a minecart that got let go while being guided.

I've tried to figure out the item, but honestly, there's just too much constantly going on.  Unless and until Toady or someone with DFHack puts together something to let us go directly to these items, I give up unless it's obvious (wheelbarrow between burrows is a usual culprit).

2 real years later in August, the endgame is definitely coming. Almost there. :)

I'm looking forward to the HFS.

You got me wondering if the HFS paths into the OMG, or if that's even feasable FPS-wise at this point.

I've been rewatching the playlist and I wanted to thank you again for posting it.  Very entertaining.  A couple of thoughts I've had:

1)  It might be worth it to put a 1 square retractable bridge over the entrance ramp to the OMG.  That way any migrants or nobility can be forced to bypass the OMG and go in through the wagon entrance.

2)  While you have the surface completely walled off, you may want to consider upgrading from the snow road.  You mentioned in one video that there is platinum on the map.  A platinum road leading into the fortress sounds like it would be a road fit for a king...

3)  Would it be worth it to carve out fortifications on the left side of the OMG for your archers to help out when a troll siege comes in?  Or could that become a security issue?

In any case, I'm looking forward to seeing Furnaceclans become the mountain home!

The FPS will drop like a brick when I release the Circus, but that's to be expected.  Forrest has volunteered to run for us.

The problem with the 1 square bridge to the omg is the same problem as any of my other levers.  They're dwarf powered and thus subject to the whims of drunken beards.  There's a 'main cutoff' for the OMG and migrant entry that's a bridge that I put up while servicing the OMG in prior times.

Finding Platinum is different from knowing it's there.  I've already got severe frame rate issues and I don't want to start strip mining levels to find the platinum.

It might be worth it.  So would magma cart shotguns.  I still need to get those working. :)

New episode is up, guys, and we go and open up Cavern 1.  Sorry for the delay, life is... life.

Remind me what OMG stands for? I'm sure I used to know...

Is this biome reanimating? I really don't want to know what happens when "absurd numbers of megabeasts" is combined with "reanimating biomes".

Thanks :).

I was pretty sure the "M" was "Magma" (...I mean, what else would it be?), wasn't sure on the O and the G
