Just some underground ideas
« on: April 14, 2009, 08:46:02 pm »

So. We know that there are going to be mazes of underground caves, linked across all of the world map.

We need:

Underground Civs.

Mini-pits. Just small obstacles, possibly with artificial bridges built ages ago.

Mysterious levers that lift up huge gates, or shift tons of rock, changing both the surface and the maze of passages.

And you can't eat them, either, sadly. Even though it'd make sieges so much more fun; dwarves lining the walls, drooling and carrying sharp knives and forks, ready for the upcoming meals.

It's been discussed before, there are current threads about it, it's in the devnotes, and the devlog today showed that there are pits and holes and such already.

So, again, read the devnotes, etc.    Since you've posted something like twenty threads in the past month, maybe you should chill out for a while and actually read some?

varkarrus, as I found the last reply slightly lacking, I've decided to link this recent topic for your edutainment:

If I wanted to recreate the world of one of my favorite stories, I should be able to specify that there is a civilization called Groan, ruled by Earls from a castle called Gormanghast.
You won't have trouble supplying the Countess with cats, or producing the annual idols to be offerred to the castle. Every fortress is a pale reflection of Ghormenghast..

I can't be blamed if I see it as a lost cause.   He's made something like twenty suggestion threads in the past month, with no indication he even reads them after posting 'em.   I've been far more courteous in the past with him, and yet he floods the forum with zero content threads.

Lock button, anyone?

Yes.

Yeah, suggestion posters, please read the instructions!  The Underground Diversity thread was right there on the front page.  Although, if you do find yourself getting tired and even just a little frustrated, please report instead of replying, and I'll take care of it, hopefully without causing a problem (not saying a problem was caused here).
