It's me again Margaret...
(If you got that, I'll love you forever
So haven't played much past few days, anxiously awaiting .45 still. But learned new things from caprontos and around the forum and had an idea, that evolved and evolved again, and had to be done. So I give you, without further ado, my New Castle!
So I started off laying down the foundation of where everything would be - Dining Hall, kitchen, personal rooms(3x3), forge, and hallway... I managed to forget the kings room.
Then, to gather the supplies needed and prepare workstations. So I deleted one row of personal rooms and replaced it with a masonry workshop so they can build the walls right on the spot.
Now that the quarries have been worked and the workbenches have been set, its time to start building. (I'd like to point out that I ALREADY HAD a masonry workshop in my town, and my townies wanted to use it and walk across the map to do so, so I had to delete it so they'd use these workbenches)
The Inner Sanctum has been completed with the exception of one space, which is important and you'll see why. Construction on the Outer Sanctum has begun.
The Outer Sanctum is now complete, and places its roof over the entirety of the castle. We don't want that though, so we will finish that last space in the Inner Sanctum.
Add the final outside wall, a moat for good measure, and you've got a cool looking castle.
You can return the masonry workshop back into personal rooms, or just leave it if you want all services available in one location.
Trivia!: The castle isn't really complete at this time. I built the outside wall only far enough to make it to the edge of the screen. Move the camera up or to the right and the wall stops. To have made it this far, it took 1 month and 1 day in-game time, and if I continue to completely finish it I'll have to mine out a new quarry. And should it be completed, the total amount of stone used will amount to 579.
