This is fantastic. I love this creature pack! And that's coming from someone who uses tilesets and can't usually make sense of ASCII.

I have it working in conjunction with the Phoebus pack. Just a little replacement in raw/graphics, and everything's copacetic.

Keep up the good work! I look forward to seeing you take on all the DF fauna.

Very well done. I think deon had a similar idea a while back, but never actually started with the creature-letter sprites.

Does your custom sprite support the gender symbol ? I use a custom sprite as well, but both my gender symbols are displayed as asterix *. WWould be great to know the glyph ID so I can change them.

EDIT: deon Sry, did not see your post on page 2... redundant post by me is redundant.

I started and it's linked in this thread in my post, but this one is much better (and more complete).

Thanks!

I'm not sure what you mean with custom sprite.
The tileset of course includes the gender signs. And The TrueType font was missing a few DF relevant symbols (male, female, sun, capital Gamma=weight), but I added them with FontForge.
Their Unicode code points are U+2642 for male and U+2640 for female. Codepage 437 position is 11 for male and 12 for female. Other information displayed by Fontforge:

9792 "female" FEMALE SIGN = venus
9794 "male" MALE SIGN = mars

*v09 released*
Improved color scheme!
Animals are now complete!


Yeah, that's right! There's a graphic for every animal in DF now. I also added graphics for the minor civs (Antmen, cave swallow men and so on). Next version should probably see a separate graphic for the different antmen castes.
What's left are the various mythical creatures (floating guts, grimeling, that kind of stuff) and Giant and -men versions. I'm not sure yet how to handle these. The best solution might be to give them the same graphic as their regular creatures they're based on to avoid complicating the graphics too much.

I was a little dissatisfied with the CYAN-LBLUE, BLUE-LGREY and the RED-MAGENTA contrast in another natural color scheme, so I improved it a bit.

Here are some comparison images as well as the code:

Excellent work. I'm surprised I've not noticed this until now. I'll have to play around with the colour scheme. It's a shame 10x10 is too small to work much with.

This is an awesome set. I lean more towards sprite tiles than to plain ASCII, but this set is like the ideal middleground. Thanks!

Unfortunately I don't have much time at the moment to work on this beyond updating to new versions. I didn't even have time to try out the minecarts yet.

but then I came in and I said 09, fastest ever!

Completely forgot about this. I made a typo, I did of course mean "custom font" and not "custom sprite" But you caught my meaning anyway, so thanks for the answer.

If this gets more complete, I would like to include it in my modpack :)

Hey, this is a pretty cool tileset. My favorite was Ironhand, but I have a new favorite now :)

I love this tileset so much, that's coming from someone who usually uses the vanilla graphics. The color scheme is just so much more pleasing to the eyes, and makes important things easier to see. I used to use Mayday, but went back to the vanilla ACII as i still wanted ACII, not a complete overhaul, however i found that the vanilla ACII just wasint pleasing, it was hart to see small important things, it hurt my eyes after long periods of time... What i want isnt a complete overhaull (ie. sprites for everything), but not ACII either (Thatsnotconfusingatall). This is a very good middle ground, exacaly what iv been looking for, ACII, but not ACII. Yeh, oh yeah thatsnotconfuningatall.

Anyway, thank you you for making this great tileset and improving my DF experience, keep it up!

Thanks Guys!
@Meph:
Feel free to use it at any point. Also I'll see if I can find some time later today to start a fort and see what I can improve about the rails and minecarts at least.
