Found my first cavern
« on: Today at 07:30:43 pm »

So I was digging deep and encountered a cavern for the first time in this game.  And I can safely say this is much more intense than anything I expected.  I immediately undesignated everything I had been building and then covered over the hole I had made while I contemplate how I'm going to approach this.  The cavern is huge.  40x50 squares wide on the top level (of what I can see), 11 z deep (again that I can see).  The most expansive levels are 100x100, and the bottom half are all filled with water.

Any recommendations on how to secure the entrance when breaching a cavern?  This seems trickier than above because I can't just easily toss a pit under my welcome mat.

Pretty safe option is digging through a pillar and then opening a entrance, seal it with a bridge, some war animals and cage traps.
Remember to send a squad when working in the caverns, but it should be mostly okay. Its just the outside with meaner bunnies.
