How often to you use stonesense?

I consider it an essential part of Dwaf Fortress, and can't play without it.

I use it for pretty screenshots, but otherwise don't use it during play.

I only try it occasionally.
- 166 (27.4%)
I have no idea why I'm even in this thread, I don't use it.
- 136 (22.5%)

Sheesh, did Jonas and I really start that old thing back in 2009? Has it been 3 years? I'm getting old! D:

Anyway, mad props to you Japa for all your hard work and continuing dedication, and I'm glad to see the new thread take off! First post updates are going to be several kinds of awesome!

Yeah, I'll try to keep it running, even if I'm not nearly as organized as Jonask is.

Also you're always welcome to give new sprites.

I'm a terribly fickle person when it comes to how I spend my free time. I have been practicing higher-res digital art recently... and though I'm not nearly as good as many people out there, I'll admit that seeing the new high-res dwarf sprites with clothing layers and all makes me wish there were high-res randomized terrain tiles to go with them... perhaps with transitional tiles for blending terrain types smoothly too.

We shall see...

There are some beautiful 64x64 pixel tiles freely available. The set could be expanded of course

But ey, it's only slightly bigger than the default Stonesense tileset.

How does one make it read 64x64 spritesheets?

each sprite that is 64x64 needs to have zoom="1" in the sprite definition.

You know, Stonesense is one of my favorite things to use with Dwarf Fortress, I haven't played in a while, but seeing this thread makes me want to download Stonesense again and fire up the 'ol fortress!

Was conflicted about posting now that the old thread is closed.  Decided this was just too great a project to not stay current on.
