So I decided to use the seed 123456789 with X and Y also set to that. I liked the idea of the world being easily manipulated in order to protect my kingdom. I am using only two-handed weapons for combat (non-training) and I'm trying new things which wouldn't usually be optimal.
Here is what the world looks like in general.http://puu.sh/lPAYy/3246bae618.jpg
I set up a small farm and a woodshop in the mountain.http://puu.sh/lPBeF/8453f68b3f.jpg
Here it is with complete workshops, I planned for the future.http://puu.sh/lPBiS/ee967b9b8f.jpg
An issue with this world is that things spawn in annoying places, this is a double edged sword as goblin invasions also do the same.http://puu.sh/lPBmf/7a7d09a6f9.jpg
I got extremely lucky, two animals killed eachother so I was able to get bones very quickly.http://puu.sh/lPBpd/34731c299c.jpg
Flattening out the base a bit, you can see the stone workshop and storage.http://puu.sh/lPBsv/6d69d251e7.jpg
Here's the groves for the woodshop, I like everything being open.http://puu.sh/lPBxf/ef665111f5.jpg
For some reason Steam isn't saving every screenshot, I feel like I've taken a lot more than is in the folder. Here's the base so far, I favoured wheat farms over grape and strawberry as it produces more useful products.http://puu.sh/lPBDe/178fa76d1d.jpg
Here you can see the kitchen tower, the new emu farm, the training tower, the metalshop and the food storage.http://puu.sh/lPBKM/f9c989abc3.jpg
The start of the palace, where I will keep the great hall and queen.http://puu.sh/lPBRk/8a6dda0b3b.jpg
We've had a few goblin attacks, Steam is definitely not saving every screenshot. Iron clad goblins are starting to appear, as well as an ogre or two, but my squad makes quick work of them.http://puu.sh/lPBTz/cce77e3dde.jpghttp://puu.sh/lPBYW/8744602351.jpg
A wave of goblins managed to sneak through into the emu pasture while my gnomes were figuring out which end of the sword is pointed at the enemy. We lost 2 emus but one emu managed to take down 3 goblins and has earned a spot at the palace.http://puu.sh/lPC03/9e5838478c.jpg
Another wave of goblins broke into the training tower. The master prefix is given to any gnome who achieves 100+ in a weapon skill. we lost Master Zinx (axe), Master Rago (sword) lost his leg, Master Pinkleff (sword) lost his Leg, Master Tia (hammer) lost her arm. They have been retired into brewing, aside from Tia who now makes bronze armour. Measures have been taken to spot invaders before they break through any more doors.http://puu.sh/lPC84/80f4a7f6ec.jpg
Here is the palace so far.http://puu.sh/lPCAb/3bdf9c2b98.jpghttp://puu.sh/lPCxW/fe3a010ede.jpghttp://puu.sh/lPCyC/5a087fb3d1.jpg
Any suggestions/comments? The main reason I made this world is to try to do things I wouldn't usually do, if you'd like more pictures, less pictures, a world download, to suggest buildings/styles, reply.
