He got a picture of that damn penguin statue though.


Also, I have to admit something - I used DFHack to clean the place up and autodump the corpses off the front doorstep.  I haven't saved yet, so if you want me to undo it, I will.  It's bumped me up from 12-13fps to 16.  If you want to know HOW I got rid of the corpses, well let's just say that the Magma Flow counts as a floor for Autodump.

So, do I leave the place cleaned up and tidied, or do you prefer the Hellhole it had become, laden with corpses with discarded clothing everywhere through the Habitation Level, animal corpses and skeletons filling the halls and demon goo and dwarf blood throughout Hell?

I vote hell hole, and should the dwarves ever repopulate....

BUILD A WALL OF cORPSES
[OR just dump loads of corpses on top of walls :P]

Shame you couldnt turn all the corpses into bones and build a bone wall or figure/statue. :P
....
Obsidianise a spot in your hell lake and build yourself a throne room/palace of bone?
 or find another spot to make a magma lake and do it their. more hell esk.

Go with my old standby - Lock the tantrummers in the dining hall and draft the victors into your militia

Didn't even have the chance to build a dining hall (let alone any doors...) Whole place has gone to hell by now though. Runesmith can't cheer them up that effectively. They revert to their old emotional state very quickly. 3-4 more deaths now, including one poor kobold that everyone hated for some reason. She took a beating from plenty of tantrumers, and eventually got killed. R.I.P. kobold whose name we cannot pronounce.

Looks like conquering hell would have been far, far easier than trying to build a fortress over a 6 z-level aquifer. spent the whole first year getting to stone, and I paid for the missing time when invaders turned up.

I would like an image of a kobold (a "k") in orthoclase on my villa's floor please, if you ever get the chance for such petty things. :P

Pun intended?

Teleport everything to a single tile to be obsidianized, then save scum until that rock is made into a masterwork statue. Place in a visible location so that your dwarves constantly pass by a massive statue with charred goblin bones and half-melted armor in it. Then again I'm not sure if that would reduce FPS the same as the game might pull some shenanigans as it does and just pretend like the items still exist.

You already have demons encased in obsidian, why not do the same to all of your enemies?

I've saved it as-is with the front doorstep cleaned of corpses and the FPS is averaging 17-18 now instead of 11-13. 

And now for a proper update on Helliopolis and flooring over the Glowing Pits


I still need a name for the lake.  Something dwarven and silly for preference.

And now for some close-ups of the new groups of one-room Hellvillas

Oh, and here's a pic of progress on the 'SWORDTHUNDERS' sign and the current Glowing Pit being floored over beside it

How do you dig slade? And get slade boulders? It's buggin' me.

Girlinhat and I had a discussion about this earlier, and apparently it requires getting underneath the slade to start with - so it requires a bugged world. Then you can ramp up into the slade and get boulders that way.

Hmmm...
If I turned the floors into obsidian, channeled, then odsidianized the wall underneath, would that work to get down?

Eh?  I haven't been digging slade.  Closest to it would be flattening the ramps so I can smooth and engrave the floors in the Hellvillas.

Brandywine lake? Nothing like referencing fat, complacent midgets AND alcohol when talking about a dwarven resort. Needs moar Tolkein references. Maybe you could even make a "forest" area or park by muddying some slade and putting some paths and picnic tables in it while waiting for the trees/moss to grow.

Already put in a picnic area overlooking the beach atop a cliff.  Also, it looks like nothing will grow in hell on its own.  I've got some mossy cavern floor from some mud, but considering it became muddy a good 5 game years ago, or longer, and nothing's sprouted....

And this doesn't need Tolkien.  It needs Ludicrous Dwarven Naming.  Armok's Happy-Sunshine Beach is the popular cleaning spot now.
