As it turns out, pulling every lever in the fortress wasn't as good of an idea as it sounded like at the time.

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

If you set 'z-levels above ground' in advanced world gen to some large number like 200 or above, we should never have to worry about running out.

why kill elves if you could torture them, make them betray their friends, denounce their "force", make them watch trees being chopped down, feed them meat and throw them in magma as a sacrifice for almighty Armok?

Eventually when you go far enough the insane start becoming the sane

Wowzah, what a reception :o. 9 turns signed up for already!  -tacks on a hurriedly drafted turn list to the front post-

Alright, time to get down to business.  I've generated a couple of regions looking for the perfect embark site for our tower; tweaked a couple of minor settings in worldgen, nothing too much.  The world size is 'smaller', history is only up to 50 years, minerals are at a relatively frequent 750.  The z-level cap has been increased to it's maximum: 100z's of sky.  And lastly, civilization numbers have been bumped up, meaning all sites will have human, dwarves, elves and goblin neighbours.

Right down below are 5 different embarks I've selected, in order of increasing extremeness.  Give me your opinions on them, and we'll see which one to choose!

ALSO IMPORTANT QUESTION: 3x3, 4x3 or 4x4 embark?  I'm not so sure about this, but apparently having to simulate 100 extra z-levels of sky affects the fps, so I'm leaning towards smaller embarks.

Is it possible to change the sky limit post-generation?  I just don't see how we would possibly survive long enough to reach the top.  For the sake of fps, I think a sky of 50-60 would be plenty.  I'm also torn between Site 3 & 5 :-\ ..... 5.  As for embark size, I always do a minimum of 4x4.  In my experience, if you're going to have fps problems, then a few extra tiles won't make a difference; but having extra building & cavern space is worthwhile.
