Unused Lord Barclay Castle?

Recommended Posts

While rewriting our AI lords article, I've stumbled across this castle from lord Barclay which I've never seen before in-game. Has anyone else ever seen Lord Barclay use this Castle?

Hmm...is this v1.4.1? If there's a bastion tower in the corner that's hidden then I believe I have come across this design before. If not, then I haven't a clue!

Yes, it's 1.4.1. It's actually a Great Tower - there's one in each of the four corners.

 

This is in the castle files as barclay01.aic but it never seems to be used, ever. My best guess is that it's partly because of its massive size and the fact it consumes so much stone (well over 1,500) Firefly must have axed it from the game but left it as a file. I'm honestly not sure.
