Be careful when pushing in the plastic pins of the motorized winch housing into the dwarvenite wall. I found that going slow and making sure it's aligned, then pushing from the front of the gatehouse wall so you're pushing the wall holes into the pegs of the morized winch housing was better than trying to force the housing pegs into the holes. Go slow.

While connecting the motorized winch, be careful to ensure that the bottom of the front plate (with the switch) doesn't get hung up by the lip that the unit "sits" on. It's a very tight fit. The wall is dwarvenite, so it's flexible enough to bend slightly and get the bottom of the front plate unstuck if it's held up by the lip.

Sorry I am at work right now so I can not take a pic but I drew something rough for you. If you need more I can post real pics later today / tomorrow.

Pic is layout of bottom layers. You will fill in gaps using magnetic wall pieces and then place top spacer on unit. It should be level if you did it right.

Gate House Build + Motorized Assembly?

Post by radionate » Sat Jul 22, 2017 7:22 pm

Can anyone post pictures on how the motorized assembly fits onto the gatehouse. I have searched the forums and DF youtube channel and they do not show how to build on top of the gatehouse. I can build everything else via the pdf building guid and vids but the gatehouse bonus stuff was not added to the how to build stuff. thanks hive mind.

Thanks in advance!!!
