I'm a little busy with life ATM (Y'know, that thing that's kinda like dwarf fortress but with fewer dangerous predators, less vomit, and more madmen), but if this goes on for awhile and someone makes the mod, I would certainly be willing to try building that monstrosity.

Instead of modding reactions and adding placeholder ones, just mod the adamantine reaction. It would be easy enough, and I am already doing it. When I finish my current fort (above ground castle with labyrinth for access) and a few other ones I may post a save. Admittedly the forts have all been heavily reliant on the limitless materials, but that was because they were going to be originally designed for adventurers. If anyone is interested I will redouble my efforts on the constructions.

Question here... Would it be possible to merge saves together? Give save A precidence over historical events or somesuch...

It'd make it so that everyone picks out one square of the game world to work at, and can work simultaniously.

Personaly I'd like to make a clear glass Stairway to Heaven. With waterfalls and magma. I'd need a chasm drain, but it'd work nicely with the obsidian and flames at the bottom being a paralell of hell.

Also, would a bauxite/steel pump transmit magma/lava?

Don't think so with the saves, but yes, bauxite/steel transmits lava. You just hafta make sure all the parts of everything are lavaproof.

Epic. Lavafall, here I come... Let's see them try and run up to the gates now...

Also... Why, exactly, can't the saves be combined? Can the obstacles be surmounted?

Iron also resists lava. And anything as a floor or a wall is immune to lava.

Hm... Last sidetracking question here, how would one go about getting people to build a bauxite mechanisim, as opposed to a random one?

Workers grab the closest available material for a job, excluding z-levels, using a straight line path. Just stick the workshop in the middle of a bunch of bauxite, and remove any other stone anywhere near the workshop on any z-level.

By definition that makes you a fan since you still buy them.

Damn, I just found out you can't build tallow walls/roads anymore...  I'd have to mod in new materials and reactions in order to make the candles.

But, while I was at it, I could make a material called "wick", which could have a lower ignition point than heat damage.  This should theoretically produce an ever-burning wick.


Then I'd just need some magma to light them, and I'd be set...

So should we put together a roster? As mentioned above this is supposed to be a succession world. Also for reactions what about something like this:

Then simply edit them to suit whatever your fort will need.

But back to the main point of this post.
We should set up a roster and start this thing. I'd like to join. But not first. Maybe eighth or somewhere around there.

How about living candles? Install chains in the five points of the pentagram, surrounded by grates. Make a lava pit below the pentagram, and a reservoir above. Living sacrifices are chained to the points and ignited with magma, which seeps into the pit below.

It's a fun idea, but they never last long enough to justify the effort.  Besides, I'd rather have an unlit tallow pillar than a lit elf.  I know that's somewhat blasphemous, but considering the circumstances that works just fine.

Ok lets put together a roster:
code:
 
1:
2:
3:
4:
5:
6:
7:
8:THLawrence
9:
10:

Players who need to pick a spot:
Gread, Boksi, Mech#4


Important Things to Remember:
1: Please note that the only thing that will be distributed will be the save. You can mod the vanilla reactions.
2: If you think your dwarves will take to long to build something cool, set them to [SPEED:1]. You may cheat when building your fort. It is allowed.
When building your fort please plan it for when all init options are on. You do not have to have it them on if your processor can't take it but other people using adventurers to visit your fort will. If you really want a floating castle with no connection to the ground please post a warning on this thread.
3: If your fort will take a prolonged period of time or you have been unable to work on it please post and tell us that it has been delayed temporarily. This will help.
4: Please post a progress report at least once a week. A progress report can be as little as: "I'm up to the 18th floor on my crystal glass spire. Should be done soon." or even "Still working on it."
5: In order to stream line things the raws will not be distributed.
6: No cage traps. They freeze peoples games.


Thank-you

P.S.
GRead can you edit your first post to include the roster and the rules.
Additional suggestions are open until the first player starts.


Also a question:
Do items in buildings or the trade depot stay put? What about items in bins on stockpiles?

Not signing up for anything, but this thread has inspired me to build a solid gold sky fortress.
