No, what we really need is to keep the foxes(it is a fox right? always thought it was a fox) out of those planes.  Then they'll go off with some little blue hedgehog fighting robots.

In case we get any dire hedgehogs teamed up with genius mutant foxes; we gotta forge dozens of vehicles that are multi-purpose. We'll need some that can withstand and launch magma, of course. Tunnel boring machines, hammer-armed floaters, electric gravity-defiers... The list goes on.

And, of course, the obligatory airship.

Maybe with a tall enough embark site, we can construct a Death Egg. But to power it, we may need some lignite bins, magma, and plenty of water; and lots, and I mean LOTS of mills and wheels and mechanisms.

That spiny hedgehog will NOT defeat me. You know why? Because...

they are the Eggmen *woo*;
I am the walrus, koo koo ka-chu!

This is quickly turning into a Nintendo mod...

Mario should be a megabeast. Too bad we can't give him the ability to climb 1 Z-level cliffs like when you climb out of a pool in adventure mode.

But Mario can fly.  Oh, and don't forget the fire flower breath.  That's important.

Anyway, here's the high-res version with second deck, ready for approval, captain:

I like. Carry on.

Another message has been sent by the foreman of the project. About time it arrived. Let's see...

:opens carrier pipe:

...And that's the news.

Well, that explains the delay. Poor bird hasn't been properly fed. I guess they have been working their butts off. At least you should be getting your money's-worth soon enough, Woodstock. They may even feed you their local vermin by the time you return.

What dimensions should the third deck be, roughly, in comparison to the two lower floors?

Slightly more further back to retain both boat-like form, as well as housing many mechs.

There should be a thin channel (wall/floor/wall 1-tile wide passage) around the rear perimeter of the deck (as illustrated) to house the axles with 1 or 2 windows (inner/outer) for both maintainence and/or being able to look outside/get a good shot. And the front extends the most. Basically, it needs to be pretty rear-heavy in form in order to help balance out from the weight of the engine blocks focused near-front.

I think the dimensions go by ratio (from Depot Rear:Front):

I guess a 1:3 ratio (backside extended about 2-4 tiles further post-ratio measure), more or less closer to 3.5. And compared to the lower deck, about 1-2 tiles-worth wider (probably excluding maintainence pipeline). I haven't been working on it lately.

Speaking of which. Sorry for a lack of updates. Really busy work week, plus a few unexpected visitors. I'll try to make up for it this weekend, when everything's settled down.

What's this? An update?  :o

Yes it is! I apologize for not updating; I had a busy week. Family visited, work was hell (a re-opening celebration; *ugh*, and recovery for maybe a day). I have taken some time to get everything setup for an update. Enjoy the latest one, and once more, sorry for the delay.


Nice title huh?

I'll try to follow it up tomorrow with another, hopefully in the afternoon; if not, then maybe tomorrow-night.

With the Magma furnaces, I usually dig out a grid below where i want them to be then channel the last square to break into the magma and cover it with a floor. Then when you wanna open up a square for the furnace, just channel it out....

I dunno, I've had dwarves outrun magma flow before, trying this method. Plus, the stats of my miner is pretty good in swiftness.

Hopefully, I shouldn't encounter problems.

You know what? I succeed, I'll have a video ready. Proof it's possible sans-modding to outrun magma after engraving a faucet. And not !!death!!.
