For the article about fortress evolution
In 16'th century castles began to lose their military significance, and huge fortresses for royal armies replace small and proud castles of demi-independent feudals.

loved this series with the evolution of castles!!

It seems in this specific hill with a cliff, they went for complete demolition of the castle of the previous century, except the base for some walls!

Thickened towers and gate house (which I didn't know actually existed, but I'll take artist word for it) and low star fort pattern.  Looks good!

In my mind the Trace Italienne aka Star Fort was a kind of castle and they were still used into the 1600's.

The star forts were used well up to the early 1800s. Not until the invention of rifled, explosive shells did they really loose their utility. The high point of their use was during the 1700s.

You should do a star fort. It would be awesome.
