-= Taffer's Tilesets & Graphics =-Goblin tested, Armok approved.
-=-More screenshots are can be located here, ensconced in an imgur album.
Sharp looking, vanilla styled tilesets that strive to strike a good balance between nice, attractive graphics, while avoiding the odd graphical oddities that occur with many otherwise wonderful tilesets. I have positioned many tiles carefully and put a lot of thought into each one, often obsessively so. I find the cumulative differences from the ASCII add quite a bit to the game. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and the update log attests to that, but the result is pleasing and well-polished. The alternate walls are included, as are the colour sets and racial graphics for dwarves, humans, elves, goblins, and kobolds.
If the tileset is a little small for you, there is a double-sized version included in the download. There is an addon for CLA here
This will work fine with any mods, unless the mod relies on graphic sets. I particularly recommend Essential DF
. Install the ASCII version, then install this overtop of it.
Four wall options! Solid or hollow, with diagonal or the traditional straight versions of each. Diagonal walls allow for beautiful fractal fortress designs and give a more organic look, while the straight options look make for more attractive "traditional" fortresses. The hollow walls make for nicer fortifications, while the solid wall option is a cleaner look. Screenshots of each are linked above. If you dislike the font, there is an alternate included. More colour schemes can be found on the wiki
, if Taffer/Tamber-Krain's, Dawnbringer, or Tocky's colours don't appeal to you. Vherid's Set
also contains some beautiful colour schemes. Another addition that I highly recommend is Soundsense
, to provide your game with some more atmosphere. If for some strange reason you're running an ancient DF version then pink, non-transparent versions of the tilesets can be found on my wiki page
. The Dawnbringer colours may be previewed here
To install, unzip taffer.zip over top of your Dwarf Fortress installation, and also copy the raw folder into your saved game. Do not swap this tileset into an installation with Mayday, Phoebus, Ironhand, CLA, or other graphic sets unless you know what you're doing.
Many good, stout dwarves died making these tilesets. Also a few elves, and possibly a spider monkey.Download it here!-= Raw tilesets=-
