2212 z-level above-ground Adamantine Spire
« on: July 14, 2010, 07:47:31 pm »

So... 3x3 embark, Haunted plains, no source of running water at the surface.  "Damn, this thing is taking a long time to embark."  Finally, I see my dwarves around their wagon, but I can't actually do anything.  Several seconds later, the game zooms to z-level -60-something, and informs me that a section of the cavern has collapsed.  "Oh, that can't be good."  I check my status screen, and there's fortunately no tell-tale signs of a "clown-college."

I'm left wondering why the game is so unresponsive, but then I notice something...

And it goes up...

..quite a ways.  Do note: This is not the highest point of the map.  I simply got tired of going up.

You'll find it here:


I'm going to cause this column to collapse, and post the results.

UPDATE:
By popular demand, here's the seed.  I run 64-bit Slackware Linux on an AMD Phenom II, so I don't know if this will work properly for everyone (it didn't for the last time I tried posting a seed here, but that was from the 40d days).

Tell me that's not a spire of adamantine. :3

This is a holy land. Engrave the hell outta that thing with a legendary +5 engraver and relish in it's glory. Trajan's column can kiss my ass.

EDIT:
Better idea. Build a kingdom inside, and of it.

OP updated with seed.

This thing goes up for at least 1401 z-levels.  Is there any way to head to the highest z-level possible?  Any shortcut of the sort?

And yes, that is sweet, precious, holy adamantine.

If it gens properly on Windows, I'll try when I get back to Indiana in mid-August.

EDIT: If this works on Windows, you are my god.

EDIT2: There is no "w" in edit.

What. A 1400+ level tower of adamantine?! Someone must build the ultimate temple to Armok from the entire thing.
