Steampunk Castle Construction Kit - Requirements: Poser 6 and up
So called Steampunk Castle is type of late-medieval or early modern time fortress built mainly for various alchemical projects, large scale experiments and some pre-industrial production of chemicals and potions as well. Our particular Castle consists of tall main tower known as Keep or Donjon, where are located major production facilities and alchemical workshops and laboratories. The most dangerous substances stored at the topmost floor where also took place the most risky experiments, so the eventual explosion will not damage the core part of the structure. In lower floors are located laboratories for non-hazardous materials, living rooms, administration as well as store-rooms and warehouses. Nearby tall tower, known as Dansker is used mainly for the noble purpose of producing The Steam. So the Dansker Tower is equipped with the huge boiler called The Big Boiler or Lebes Magnus and several floors of massive furnace rooms where Holy Stoker Monks feed the fires for boiling the water and producing The Steam. Lower floor of the Dansker Tower are used for spacious coal bunkers, maintenance workshop and so on. Monks lived in tall turret which was part of the Dansker where their Convent was located. Location of Dansker Tower aside the Keep is motivated by safety reasons, since steam production can be risky in these times. Dansker Tower and the Donjon are joined via footbridge, which also holds the main pipeline for conducting The Steam form production to machineries inside the Keep.
Safety of the Fortress is maintained by high and sturdy perimeter walls fortified by steel armature plates and cavalier bastions. Outer Walls, crowned by safe and wide battlements made from large steel pipes embody the main idea behind building of such fortresses. The Structures itself must not comply to irregularities of the terrain or the nature (which is here only to convey its resources), but it have to stretch over it. So the Castle itself is built across any type of terrain on huge stone terraces, which hereby ensure the perfectly flat and smooth surface for castle buildings.
On the front (southern) part of the Castle is built massive Gatehouse building, which serves as backbone of castle´s defense system. Here is located castle´s garrison, weapon depots and also local dungeon and torture room. The Courtyard part of the Gatehouse is used as residence of Castle´s Burgrave, guests quarters and so on. Castle Main Entrance which is located between two massive stone bays guarded by sentry gangplanks and armored footbridge and further defended by possibility to pour hot oil on the heads of potential enemy (mostly traditionalists or anti-industrialists) through series ofdefensive piping in the front wall or the gate itself. Nearby tower strengthens further the Gatehouse, in the basement is located the dungeon and torture rooms, higher are garrison quarters. On the topmost floor is located lookout terrace and placement for some war machinery.

Nikon Df - The Expanded Guide
Ammonite Press | 2014 | ISBN: N/A | English | 240 pages | True PDF | 21 MB
The "D" in the name stands for "digital", while the "f" stands for "fusion", referring to the marriage of old and new. Despite its pretensions of being a fully manual camera, the Df also features front and rear electronic control dials in addition to the physical dials on the top-plate. Most notably, and unusual for a modern DSLR, the Df cannot shoot video. This is because the Nikon Df is intended to be a serious camera for people who want to produce "pure" photography. UK author Jon Sparks provides practical tips on how to get the best from this versatile camera, in this comprehensive step-by-step guide that includes a pullout quick reference card.
