Can you please post VF screenshots of the ship in its current state? (If I try to view that DFMA map it freezes Firefox)
I've been having problems as well, I can only really get the starting POI in, and then things go haywire.

I'll post VF screens tomorrow.

How exactly DOES this thing fly?

It doesn't fly, actually. It "hovers". When he wants to take off, he breaks the bridge leading to it, and cave-ins are turned off, so it doesn't fall down.

I believe cave-ins are always off - bridges don't transfer support, so it's been unsupported essentially the entire construction period. Helps to make it look cool in screenshots, too (though I recall seeing something about building an 'anchor' that would provide support in an aesthetic way and thus make turning cave-ins back on possible)

I'm open to designs I can make for the tomb/cap floor. It must fit within 31x31, 29x29 preferably. And I can work with circular designs as well if need be.

EDIT:
I almost forgot, here's a panoramic picture of the finished bridge, all tables and chair and Chenjesu Computer installed.

Red is the default color in DF for a tile with no material.  My guess is that until it's finished, it recognizes that spot as having a statue with no material, sort of.  Or at least visualizers will read it that way.

UPDATE TIME!!!

Spoiler: Y13S1: Miles High Club (click to show/hide)

Yes, you read correctly.

Going for another update in due time. Taking a 30 min. break. Some minor difficulties, my break became something else, and took way longer than I thought. I'd be lucky to repeat the triple update tonight.

Another update is imminent. But I have a small matter to face before I can do so. Excuse the inconvenience. After that, possibly one more to go, and we're final.

Hint: Will need some more time to furnish it.

Yes, I can finally call it now.

EDIT:
Oh, I just realized something. Just how much wood did it cost to build this sucker? Well, I don't have exact numbers yet, but I do have an idea looking at this image. Reminder, this region is a heavily forested biome.


BTW, that's my ..|.. ;D ..|.. to the elves of the region.

Bad news everyone...

I won't make tonight's (3rd) deadline. DF decided to crap out on me in the last moments. However, I do know where I got a few things wrong the first time so I can make the update more efficient next time around. The only good news is, with improvements the next time around, it will be 100% done at the rate I went earlier.

Add to it, at least I still have another day to get this done. Huzzahs all around.

Wooo! One more day isn't that long, and this is going to be awesome.
By the way, what are the Chenjesu computers? Do they actually work? Are they connected to fluid logic tanks or something?
