Since Jonask no longer has the time to maintain the thread, I have made a new one. The old thread can be found here
Stonesense is a third party visualizer that lets you view your Dwarf Fortress world in a classic isometric perspective.
This is the official thread for feedback, questions, requests or bug reports.
We are always looking for help on Stonesense, and we are in particular looking for isometric sprite artists.
So if you want to join us in creating the Official Stonesense tileset, let us know by posting in this thread!
Please note however, we must reserve the right to screen contributions.
We do this to preserve a consistent look for the official tileset, hope you understand:)Latest Version

is where you will find user made
extension packs to improve and customize your Stonesense installation.
And if you're a modder or artist, this is the
place to show people your work!If stuff's not working
Stonesense gives an error saying that it can't load creatures/large_256/*.png: Your videocard cannot handle the high detail sprites used. either open creatures/init.txt and remove the line containing that folder, or use this fix: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=6096If you are unable to connect to DF
, Ensure that you are using a version compatible with your version of DF. For any recent version of the game, you must
use the version of stonesense that comes with DFHack.If the application fails to launch (version 2.1 only)
("The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002)"), you might be missing some runtimes. This should really only happen if Windows update hasn't run in ages or for any other reason is many years outdated. You can try downloading the Visual Studio runtimes from Microsoft:Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package
(2.6MB)Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package
NB! Some people have noted that the second package works better from this source, put up by McBeer:http://www.easy-share.com/1912193426/vcredist_x86.zip
(unofficial, but seems to work for A LOT
of problems)Ubuntu 10.10 problems
In Ubuntu 10.10 ("Maverick Meerkat") by default disables the ability of one program to read the memory of another. This is will stop Stonesense and any other DF tool from working. Please see this thread
for a suggested workaround. Thank you rmunn
