Forum:Very Difficult Gnomish Mine generation

Jump to: navigation, search

On the first level of Gnomish Mines there is no downstairs. It is a new moon. I have played hundreds of games and this has never happened. I do have a scroll of Magic Mapping. The downstairs are in a room that can only be accessed by stripping down or using a pick axe. No pick axe or maddox on any of the kills. But there is a teleport trap. Take off the cape of magic resistance and on first try I am there. The pets follow. Same deal on the next level but no teleport trap. I do have a wand of teleport with three charges. The second got me there. Pets followed. The next few levels seem to be normal. I'm gonna have to locate a pick to return. Anyone else had levels like that? If not for the wand, sure death by starvation. Count (talk) 03:06, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

  • What do you mean, if the path is blocked by a bolder that's the dwarves, not the map generator. If you have to go through a corner, lightening your load shouldn't be as big of an issue.--Rancalred (talk) 19:43, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Two corners meet without passage. No boulders involved. I just have never seen them generated like that.

Yeah, Tis rare indeed.

  • Moving through a diagonal is no big deal, you don't have to strip naked to do it. Just drop enough of your inventory so that you can fit, move through, drop what's left, and go back for the rest of your inventory. Unless you have CPM or something you won't even have to take off your armor. --Chris (talk) 15:45, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
