Northern Alliance Fort Modular Pieces (Updated)

Update: 25th July 2018: Added inner corner, outer corner and inner curve pieces. Notice: Do not mix the inner curve piece and the inner corner pieces! Given that the inner corner pieces are 12 blocks long and the inner curve is 26 blocks long, when you complete a full "circle" the pieces won't match, unless you manually modify the pieces. Some examples are available on the attached images.
Content: This mod contains a group of modular gate and wall pieces which you can select and place in order to build a sort of round-ish fortification for your Northern Alliance town.

Inspiration: The inspiration for this mod are viking ring fortresses which were made of wood and tried to blend a hill-wall with palisades. The outside was meant to make it hard for an enemy to climb the wall, the inside was straight, ideal to place ladders and store provisions.

I did not make the walls 100% accurate, but I am happy with the result. The original walls are only inspiration.
The "curves" are of course, not curved, since Stonehearth does not really work well with something that isn't squared, I decided to go for a round-edged square ring instead of an accurate circle.

The walls are not hollow, I thought about it to save resources, but sometimes Hearthlings get stuck if they built hollow structures, so I decided to make it out of normal wood - stone was too much. The pieces can be combined in any desired order.

The gate and long wall pieces are 24 blocks long. The short one is 12 blocks long. The "curves" are about 20 blocks long. They fit nicely when placed in a circle.

I did not encounter any difficulties while commanding the Hearthlings to build these pieces, and they don't need too many resources either.

I attached some pictures of a suggestion for the use of these pieces, but again, feel free to use your creativity to modify them to your taste.

I might include more pieces like inverted curves in the future.

Hah i was trying to replicate Bluetooth's fortress myself with pretty bad results. This will definately help immensly. Awesome templates!

@stair lizard not yet, I will be adding an inward curve and some other type of walls soon.

These are some of the best wall templets I've seen among the community. I hope we can see more of your work in other factions in the future.

I was just thinking I need something like this! Not sure if I'll end up using it in my current game, but great job !

well you can always give it a shot, it might save -some material but time is the main constraint in most construction sites

I did not think about something like that. I had the idea of making a door to access inside...but maybe some kind of pillar/log structure would work best. I will see if I can change them.
