SLADE : 1008197

I don't know what to make of that. Does it mean the map has over a million tiles of slade?

Yep. The entire bottom levels are made of it.

The dwarves won't mine because they are in such utter awe.  :o

Any idea how tall that thing would be in real scale?  If 1z is about 10 feet, we're looking at 22,120 feet!

It's so unfair... all that adamantine, and (relatively) safely accessible, too.

Updated the thread title to more accurately reflect the subject matter.  And to generate more buzz.

So... build an above ground outpost, and survive until you hit the popcap.

Agreed, bad enough...

For the slade, quite surprising, but not that much, it seem to me that some world param. are weird at least, made to generate a lot of fun :)

sir labreck, how you manage to mangle English so much yet still manage to keep your posts comprehensible is beyond me. Well done.

Yes, I know that, but... a million slade tiles? That would be 48 layers of solid slade, with some left over.

I generated this world successfully, and found the spot successfully, but no spire.

Maybe the year you stop world gen matters? I stopped around 60ish. On further inspection, that lake just north of where cbpye starts is already eroded away in my embarks.

Save's crashing on load for me too.  What seems really weird to me is that black spot at the base of the adamanite-- like it's unrevealed.

Abandoned fortress for reclaim-- and crashed on attempt to create new game in region 13.

Tried to make an adventurer, and it crashed.

Legends works though.

He he he.  Yeah, it almost looks done...  alas...  those who are in your teens, hold on until your twenties...  those in your twenties, your thirties...  others, cling to life as you are able...<P>It should be pretty fun though.

I used reveal and scrolled through the bottom of the maps...  There were something like 30 levels that were almost identical... slade and "open space" at the bottom.  mostly slade.

Yeah, if there are 2000+ levels aboveground, I think a few hundred below is more than reasonable.

So, suppose the universe really loops on itself on its edges? Like, if there is cave-in that goes through one edge, it appears on the opposite edge. What's more when stuff goes through an edge, it gets warped like in a singularity, and changes its physical properties.

When I reveal it, it doesn't crash.
