Tileset repository

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
You may be looking for general information on tilesets or the Graphics set repository.

A character set, or simply tileset, is an image in BMP or PNG format that contains the 256 different tiles, corresponding to the IBM Code Page 437 (sometimes called Extended ASCII). They are used to display the main graphics.

[edit] Installation

To install any of these tilesets, follow these steps:

  1. Download the tileset via right-click-save-as on the the tileset. The tileset is just an image, so there's no separate download link. (The list is here)
  2. Convert it into a 24-bit BMP file (40d or earlier) or PNG file (v0.31+). Do NOT just change the extension to .bmp; you must use a program like MS paint or GIMP to save it as a .bmp.
  3. Put it in the data/art directory of your Dwarf Fortress installation.
  4. Open data/init/init.txt
  5. If you want to use the tileset in fullscreen mode, locate and modify the [FULLSCREENX:800], [FULLSCREENY:600], and [FULLFONT:curses_800x600.bmp] configuration lines to match the specifications from the tileset list. The FULLFONT directive should match the filename of the tileset you downloaded. If you want to use the tileset in windowed mode, search for the [WINDOWEDX:640], [WINDOWEDY:300], and [FONT:curses_640x300.bmp] lines instead, and change them to the correct values.
  6. It is also recommended you keep [BLACK_SPACE:YES] to prevent stretching of the graphics.
  7. Save the .txt file, then you're ready to play!

Comments A large 257x257 DFMA world gen map can be found here.Updated 08/06/08. Changed most text characters as well as some others to 4x4 with blackspace to avoid tiling. Most characters have been revised to be spaced out to be more distinguishable in such a small set. After seeing the dev update earlier today about increasing your view size I decided to create this small font. This has been built completely from scratch, mostly while at work today. I may be making a shaded version in the future. The first image to the right is from the Abeyverse succession game.

Comments Version 2.05. Updated 11/12/07 to de-fuzz uppercase letters, added serifs and clarified lowercase letters, made horizontal spacing consistent throughout character set, fixed one error in the double horizontal-left-right, single-vertical-up-down character, made exclamation points consistent, thinned out question mark and inverse question mark, sharpened sideways stemless arrows, clarified international characters, and clarified some greek letters. Since v2.0: fixed 'i' 'g', fixed Yen symbol, fixed smiley 0x01 to not have an extra line to its right, lowered the period and colon characters, fixed position of 'x'. Thanks to Markavian for ideas on how to improve the font, as well as an occasional character glyph.

Comments I like packing as much on the screen as I can, but 8×8 is just too crowded for 1920×1080 fullscreen. I intended to make a 10×10 version of Pastiche, but I had to make countless little changes to maintain visual consistency between the two sizes. I finally gave up, called it a new font, and changed some more stuff just because! Like Pastiche, Potash is a pure ASCII/CP437 font, suitable for use outside of Dwarf Fortress should you happen to find yourself stuck in 1985.

Comments I wanted every character in this set to be the very best text symbol it could possibly be, while still looking good in-game.

A hidden feature of this tileset is that the border around the white tile only has its red color-component changed, which means that a nice clear grid shows up over (brown) designations, while (blue) ice walls still look perfectly smooth.

Comments The "full size" version of Potash. I insist on using a square font to maintain sanity when judging sizes and distances, but I'm not a fan of how text usually looks with square glyphs -- the letters are either too wide, or spaced too far apart. I've tried balance those two flaws against each other as much as possible, and I think this font is very readable as a result. Nearly all the 10×10 glyphs have empty borders on all four sides, to prevent confusing (or just ugly) connections between adjacent tiles.

Comments Similar to Alloy's conversion, this is based on the default curses_800x600 tileset, converted to 12x12. I wrote a GIMP python plugin to add padding to bring each tile up to the required size, and then I manually tidied up the places where the images no longer went all the way to the edge of the tile. This ensures that the positioning of each image within each tile stays exactly the same as in the original tileset, but with a single pixel column added on both sides of the tile to bring it up to size.

Comments Built from scratch, this ASCII tileset is made with two common 16:10 resolutions in mind. The odd tile size fills the above resolutions without artifacts and it gives an advantage in design, making for sharp features and equal spacing between characters. The manual anti-aliasing gives the set a nice and clean look. Transparent PNG support is needed for this one.

Comments I liked the great Talryth square 15x15 very much! However dwarves tiles were a litlle bit out of the style, so I changed them to default-like ones. Also added background so the there is no more black background which with bright ASCII was hard to my eyes. Again thanks to Talryth for his amazing job!

Comments Tileset intended to build upon Sphr's and Jackard's work, as well as others. Some tiles are original, some are variants and most are copied from various sets the author found pleasing. Notable originals include the broken bolt/ashes tiles, the ballista heads/large hills, the small hills, the ore (gear animation is pleasing, though axle animation is unimproved), ground tiles, and vermin. Also, bins look decent and up/down stairs look okay. This set looks its best with Sphr's graphics.

Comments A 16×16 tileset based on the very nice Herrbdog's one, and for use with the superb Dystopian Rhetoric objects. A slightly modified version of Herrbdog's tileset is available below if you want to keep the original ASCII symbols for some objects (just do some cut & paste). It's just a little brighter and with some very slight changes. The tileset shown is a tileset with graphic objects added, for use with Fortress Mode.

I recommend to have a look at the color schemes page to find your favorite color settings. The color scheme I used for the screenshots is this one.

Comments A square tileset using the diagonal wall concept from Belal and others but simplified drastically to improve the appearance. All the walls line up correctly and have consistent widths.

I did not use much of the pretty but confusing art I see in many of the other sets. I tried for a while to incorporate many of these but found that with the multiple uses for most characters they were just wrong far too often to be useful. The only ones that seem to work are the dwarves which I took from Flying Mage / Guybrush. The pretty 3Dish fonts as well just seem to look muddier and be less legible. I love it and my husband has been happily playing it for months.

Comments Unsatisfied with any existing tileset, I decided to go about creating my own. Since I can't create from scratch, I had to take tiles from other tilesets and modify them, in an evolution-like manner, until they became how I wanted them. Since most are dramatically different from the tileset I took them from, I believe I can call them original.
In the raws, change the tag [TILE:'U'] for humans to [TILE:172]. This changes both the image and corpse of humans to a unique image, which creature graphics cannot do. The elves also get a different tile, [TILE:171]. I plan to make a separate goblin symbol.
If you use it and like it, please leave a message for at my talk page or at the DFFD page. This will greatly speed progress, since I won't be doing it just for myself.
Note: The DFFD version is updated more frequently and has the changelist.

Comments A tileset based on Maus's 18x18 version of his "Nostalgia" tileset, however, it has been heavily revised. The entire font has been "smoothed over", and many of the symbols changed to more "graphical" representations of the items they represent. An attempt to fill the void of "graphic heavy" tilesets in the 18x18 tile-size. A special emphasis is placed on maximizing the text's readability, while still providing a "graphics enhanced" play area. Special thanks to Maus for the font, and Guybrush for the inspiration.

Comments Name: Yayo's Oreslam; Just like the previous one, this tileset is named according to the dwarf language: or-es-lam means "Large Clear Stone". I decided to create this tileset to fit my usual screen resolution (1920x1200). I tried giving it a clean look. To use it in windowed mode try these settings in the init file: WINDOWEDX:1900, WINDOWEDY:1160, GRID:95:58.

Comments A modified version of Bisasam's 20x20 tileset above. Walls were changed to make smooth curves and circles, broken arrows were changed to look broken, periods and commas were raised to center more closely on the tile, the seed tile was changed to help distinguish the current level and the one below, and a leaf / root tile was added for the new trees. There may have been a couple other minor changes, but the feel of the tileset should still be the same.

Comments Recently I learned of a monitor displaying 2560 pixels horizontally, and I decided it needed a tileset to put to use. Taking the tileset I use (Kelora 16x16 diagonal) and doubling it, I was able to get a decent tileset. Smoothing the edges, and redoing some glyphs to get a better look (or just messing up some to bad to fix), I was able to achieve this.

[edit] Square Tilesets for Edited Raws

If you cannot find the altered raws of a tileset for your version of Dwarf Fortress have a look at the Raw tile selector tool.

These tilesets require modified raws to work properly. Specifically, the tile numbers assigned to some objects (critters, stones, plants) need to be changed and accented characters usually need to be removed from all languages.

Comments I always liked the simplicity and feeling of ASCII tilesets but at the same time i really missed solid backgrounds and some interesting tiles from graphical tilesets. So my first try was to apply a solid background to all tiles of Talryth square tileset ( except few ones ), but it came out looking like a bunch of vermins swimming in a goblin's vomit... anyway i tried further and began to experiment with different base tilesets and finally made my own, using elements from tilesets of other authors ( mainly Tocky's one, big thanks to him! ). Then i have spotted Alexander's Jolly Bastion and took some ideas from him ( big thanks to Alexander too! ) like sky tiles and color. Then i applied Lee's Natural Color Scheme with modified "BLACK" value and here it is! Grim Fortress. It is pretty dark, kinda foggy and i think the name "Grim Fortress" fits well.

Comments Impressed with the genius of using sprites as tiles, I cobbled together this tileset of my own. It uses Super Foul Egg's superb font as a base, with several sprites also found in other users' sets. Because a lot of letters are used for graphics, I suggest that you remove accented letters from names with this set. I also suggest you shift some items to other icons, such as the coniferous trees (change Pine, Cedar, Larch from 024 to 147), the turtle (change 15 to 151), and Quarry Bush leaves (change from 006 to 003).

V2 now with new graphics for walls and liquids, as well as some other tweaks here and there and a first attempt at using dual-color sprites using a cyan base instead of simple greyscale. (Right now implemented for beds, wood and statues.) V1 can still be found here.

Comments This is a modified version of Mike Mayday's/Herrbdog's tileset. It has a more textured feel to the walls and makes heavy use of the new transparency features to make some of the tiles a little more dynamic. You can view a preview map here. I recommend changing the sky settings in the init.txt file to [SKY:249:1:0:0] for a more natural look.

Update June 11, 2010: Updated to work with the 31.xx versions of Mike Mayday's set. It will probably not look right using it with vanilla Dwarf Fortress.

Comments An update of Plac1d's tile set, now updated for DF2010. This tileset also presents an elegant solution for modifying the % tile to get good pumps, rocks, and meals. This tileset was made to serve three purposes; a) To always make text understandable, b) to make DF games more visually interesting, and c) to keep symbols simple so that the player can imagine multiple meanings for the same symbol.

See the screencaps or just get the whole DF+graphics repack.

Comments Yuppers. I requested it a long time ago when everyone else was requesting different sized square tilesets with diagonal walls, and nobody ever fulfilled the request. I decided, "Oh, it's not like I have some menial and huge English project that's due tomorrow to work on, I'm going to make that." And I did.--Taritus 20:53, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Comments The original IBM MDA character set, dumped from addresses 0x0000-0x0fff the 5788005 IBM Character Generator ROM. This font is as would be displayed on an EGA/VGA with the 9-pixel-width mode disabled. Best for a 64:35 aspect ratio. The required resolution is strange, so run fullscreen with BLACK_SPACE:YES and resolution at 640x480. The MDA card did not actually support displaying the font in 8x14, but ONLY 9x14 mode, see below. Theoretically, you CAN upload this font into EGA video memory though and use it.

The required resolution is strange, so run fullscreen with BLACK_SPACE:YES and resolution at 640x480. This font is different from the MDA version in that many characters are slightly narrower to avoid 'running into' each other, and many characters have been shifted slightly to the left.

Thanks to Zaratustra for poking me into getting this done, and for related help.

Comments v2.2 - (v1.0 is here) - Based on Microsoft's Fixedsys font (which dates back to Windows 1.0!), Many glyphs needed redoing by hand since they were absent from the font, since it is an 'ansi' character set and not a code-page 437 one like DF expects. v2.0 Based on Microsoft's Fixedsys font. Updated new glyphs to be more consistent with the Fixedsys style. - v2.1 - update a few more glyphs, namely the integral, the infinity symbol, and the spade, and a few others I'm forgetting. - v2.2 - update the club and spade, and the music notes - v2.3 - fix the fact that 0xF9 and 0xFA were inadvertently swapped.

The required resolution is strange, so run fullscreen with BLACK_SPACE:YES and resolution at 640x480. This font is actually different from the 8x14 version in that 20 characters have been replaced with the original MDA wide versions. These 'extra' wide characters are sandwiched in between the end of the 8x14 and beginning of the 8×8 font in the EGA BIOS ROM. The changed characters, in ASCII order, are: arrow-left-and-right, '"', '+', '-', 'M', 'T', 'V', 'W', 'X', 'Y', 'Z', 'm', 'v', 'w', 'ae', cent sign, yen, peseta, plus-minus, and division sign. Other than these characters, all characters are the same, with rightmost-row duplicated on the C and D rows like the MDA (though I don't actually know if this is technically correct).

Comments Designed for fullscreen. Inspired by Herrbdog's tileset, I created a shaded tileset targeting the default fullscreen 800x600 resolution. Basicaly, you have the exact same "curses" default tileset but with some shading done to the lower right of each letters and items. I've left alone everything which was related to mining or was meant to be plain, for example the smoothered tiles and the plain tiles in the demo. The reason behind that is that I didn't find much logic to have those graphics shaded as they could possibly connect on any direction on the screen, which would make the shading a little strange. Please note that this tileset is only a "beta". I might work on it again if there is enough people who like it and would like improvements. You can discuss the matter here.

I strongly recommend to enable blackspace in the init: [BLACK_SPACE:YES]
Made from the 24pts cleartype lucida console above (from winterwing). I added some stuff (some original, some ideas taken from others tilesets). Basically I try to avoid symbols that are often seen in menus, etc. The main "problem" is the bag, because its the male symbol, but it was too good looking to not put it ;) Hope you enjoy :)
