how would i make this work with the lazy newb pack?

For others:

a) install LNP with graphics set to "default ASCII" or "vanilla" or "no change" (I don't know what it's called, I never used the LNP)

b) download newest CLA standalone from here
http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=5945

c) follow instructions on that page
 1-put files from this archive (the folder 'CLA' and the textfiles) into raw/graphics and delete/move all other files in there.
 2-Open data/init.txt with a text editor such as notepad (I suggest notepad++) and change [GRAPHICS:NO] to [GRAPHICS:YES].
 3-generate new world and embark!

d) save one of these tilesets in data/art: Myne(close to vanilla) or CLA(solid ground tiles)

e)Open data/init.txt with a text editor such as notepad (I suggest notepad++) and replace all 4 instances of "curses800x600.png" (or something similar) to whatever filename you saved the tilesets as.

EDIT:
For the font, download profont (link in OP) and save as "font.ttf" in data/art,
for the color scheme, copy the code in OP and overwrite the text in data/init/colors.txt with it.

Just dropping by to say that your tileset is awesome. Exactly what I was looking for.

Keep up the good work!

A little preview of some Tileset improvements. Next version will have track graphics. Release sometime in the next days.
Top is CLA, bottom is Myne.

I just installed this after you replied to my comment in the Mayday pack thread (thanks for your help).

Is it supposed to look like the picture above?  Are those missing textures?

That screen is one of the few in game screens that is still hardcoded. It doesn't use Trutype fonts (Like the FPS counter in your screenshot does for example), so it only uses the tileset.
By default, the punctuation symbols (',' and '.', amongst others) are used to show varied ground tiles. In my tileset, I replaced these with solid squares, so the ground looks as it does currently.
As a result, the few hardcoded screens that can't use Truetype yet, will show punctuation as solid squares. The same happens if you switch off true type, by the way.
The other Graphic sets function the same way, by the way.

Ok, thanks for the info, I can live with that just fine.

Another thing that I noticed was that certain lines of text on menu screens (namely the announcements and units screens) have missing letters every now and then.  Is this a related issue?

Here are some errors Terminal generated, I don't know if this is useful information or not.

Thanks for all the help.  I believe I'm getting the hang of things, and I definitely prefer your graphics over everything else I've tried!

Yes, a related bug. True type doesn't work perfect yet, so you'll see that from time to time. A temporary fix is to scroll out and back in again. That will "reset" the missing letters.

Here are some errors Terminal generated, I don't know if this is useful information or not.
I don't think that's related to my graphic pack.

I love this tileset but the only think I dislike is the "X" : \
are you planning to change it on the future update?

I'm not sure if this has been made clear... but is there a 16*16 tileset with the solid ground tiles that's compatible with this pack? Because I recall you mentioning a 16*16 set... but those ground tiles are pretty sexy, just like the rest of this pack.

Problem is, the X is used for the cursor, bins, up/down-stairs and text.
Personally I perfer the X to be proper up/down-stairs since I use TTF anyway and I can deal with the cursor. The bins are still an eyesore, however.
So I opted for the current version as a compromise.
What kind of X would you like? More stair-like? Less stair-like?

No idea. Must have been a mistake on my side. Myne is very close to the default tileset - which is 16x16, though. Maybe that's what you meant.
In either case, the creatures are 18x18, so that won't work.

Just keep it an "X" but I would prefer a smoother version something like phoebus' "X"
I suggest you do it this way this tutorial of shook can help you with the Anti-aliasing of pixel art

I decided from the beginning not to use any aliasing and/or color. I want the tileset to stay very plain and simple, graphically. One of the reasons why I did this to begin with is that I didn't like the aliasing and amount of detail other graphic sets had.
Of course you're welcome to edit the tileset to your own preferences. If you have problems with that, I can upload an edited version of the tileset with the X as it appears in Myne.
