I'd like to imagine that he built this without turning off the invasions or otherwise modifying the game.

I doubt it... The folks who do the truly awesome megaprojects tend to disable fun stuff.

I always turn off invasions when I want to build something that big as well. Invasions just get in the way and become an annoyance.

For some fortresses I enjoy building elaborate deathtraps and want endless goblin hordes. For other maps peace and quiet is much more enjoyable.

But what would happen if you'd divide by zero? ... OSHI-!

No, seriously. What would actually happen? :S

I'd seen this before, but this is the first time I actually looked at the machinery for the calculations.

It seems that dividing 999 by 0 = b00bs...
I am confirming whether that is true with other numbers...

I like how tightly packed the machinery is in this one.

People have made programmable computing engines, too.

...There are no words for how impressive this it. None. I mean, he built a giant 100+ z-level tower that would qualify as a mega project on it's own on top of the thing. And there's an actual fort in there too, not just the computer.

What he's done is he's taken a partially finished game, and using that he has Built a computer within a computer. As you said, it's beyond the scale of any other megaproject I've seen.

As for the rest of us, there's only one thing we can do. Use the designs he designed, and build a better computer, bigger, and constructed all with sieges enabled and the underground breached.
