Well I have always left that an option in case the gap failed me. All it would take is a simple ramp i suppose.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

You might ask the DF forum. There might be a weird trick.
If this is unsolvable, report as bug.

In other news, my fort..
[photo]
We are building over a bottomless pit you see. Up above I now have the meeting hall and dining room.
The entrance holds the depot, archery range, and barracks for soldiers.
Deep down below I have the quarters. In the bottom of that picture, you can see the top of some workshop rooms.
It has taken a long time and some stockpiles and workshops have yet to be moved into proper rooms.

When all the floors meeting in the middle are constructed on every level, I will start channeling away the rock ground toward the walls, making the pit quite large.

I recently captured a giant cave spider. I'll be setting up an entire level devoted to harvesting its silk.

Good times here.
My new map has a bottomless pit. How do you build over it? I would love to use it as room but creatures keep coming out of it like Batman.

You're being attacked by Batman!

You can build a floor over it with b -> C -> f

Going to have to make sure all the critters are dead so your builder dwarfs don't get scared away.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I might do that. I already named the first 7 after the Disney dwarfs. :P

Better idea name the 1st Dwarf to go into crazy mode the Joker have Batman in a cage then set them on each other. Either that or just have a whole company of dwarves also named Riddler, Penguin, Poison Ivy, and my personal favourite King Tut.

Solomon Grundy is a legit DC comic villian. King Tut was a lame creation for the 60s Batman series with a horrid gimmick (He gets amnesia and thinks he is King Tut)

Er... ToadyOne wrote Dwarf Fortress.  :P ThreeToe is his brother, who also helped develop it.
