-= Taffer's Tilesets & Graphics =-Goblin tested, Armok approved.
-=-Download it here!
A vanilla-styled tileset & graphics set that serves as a drop-in replacement for the default Dwarf Fortress graphics. Every tile means the same thing as the default graphics, but they have all been redrawn to look better. This avoids the odd graphical oddities that occur with many otherwise wonderful tilesets. I find the cumulative differences from the ASCII add quite a bit to the game. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and my many updates attest to that, but the result is pleasing and well-polished. If you dislike the font, there is an alternate included.
While my "Dawnbringer" colour scheme is previewed here, the download includes the vanilla colours, along with Tocky's colours and Tamber-krain/Taffer colours. Optional racial graphics are included 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.
These tilesets are meant to be installed onto a vanilla Dwarf Fortress installation. They will also work perfectly with any ASCII mods. Do not swap this tileset into an installation with Mayday, Phoebus, Ironhand, CLA, or other graphic sets unless you know what you're doing.
Four wall options! Solid or hollow, with diagonal or the traditional straight versions of each. Diagonal walls allow for beautiful fractal fortress designs and have an 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. More colour schemes can be found on the wiki
, if the included colour schemes don't appeal to you. Vherid's Set
also contains some beautiful colour schemes. An 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
. There is also an addon for CLA here
Many good, stout dwarves died making these tilesets. Also a few elves, and possibly a spider monkey.
