Well, apparently the consolidated watermill idea is a bust. Each mill building must be job and craft specific. That's a lot of mills. I guess I'll need to get build water wheel mill listed as an action and then specify what the mill does when we build it.

Well just throwing this out there, that it's NOT bust if we can put all 3 in one square >> when the game is fixed and multiple actions per square works it'll make sense.

The unfortunent problem is that the water from the river falls so fare it becomes clouds of the Mist sea. what we will find is a pile of solid debris at the under where the river should fall to

This is a Water Mill version intended only for the Farmers. It can handle many agricultural tasks and I've added a provision for an additional water wheel that can be installed to only lift water to fill a large tank that would be used to operate a gravity fed irrigation system.

A similar style building (on the outside) would also serve the Crafters for their needs in power assisted tools and machinery, (Weaving, wood working, pottery, glass kilns, et al)


This Water Mill version is for the Smiths and its functions are stated on the drawings.

The Saw Mill is for the Foresters as they seem to be the ones who are cutting up the wood.

For those who may care, the use and application of water wheels and paddle wheels have been shown to be known elements of drow engineering and technology. Behold the means of propulsion on the armored river barge.
