Hi Taffer, I just wanted to start off by saying that I love your tilesets a ton. I've been using your Traditional set for years, probably since around 2015.
Anyways, I wanted to know your policy on modifying/using your tilesets outside of DF. I've started playing around with making a simple ascii game using SadConsole, just a small hobby project that I'll put up on Github at some point.
Sadconsole supports custom tilesets in a similar way to DF, and I would love to use your Traditional set as one of the visual style options. I looked at your Gitlab repository but you don't have a license attached. Are the Taffer sets Copyleft? I would of course give you full attribution. Thanks for the info.

I'm on hiatus for now. This is feeling more and more like a chore, to be honest. I don't think I've sat down to actually play in years, excluding testing here and there. No idea when or if I'll return.

Sorry. Hopefully somebody is willing to up to maintain this.

Sorry to see you go.  :'( Your walls are the best ever!

The direction the tileset took over the last few months was both interesting and beautiful.  8)

Thank you so much for the efforts over the years, you will be missed.  Have fun whatever you get up to.  :)

I've felt the same way for a while, it'll come back eventually, especially if that update drops any time soon.

I decided I miss my pixel art-ing, so I'm committing to work on this again. I'll update promptly when the update comes and I'll slowly prepare for better official graphics support.

DF Revised will probably end up supported again as well, but that's significantly more work for me and there's a huge dictionary to slog through and clean up before I promise anything, and my willpower to work on it is low right now.

At least for now I'm dropping support for my creature graphics and I'm switching over entirely to 'dorfletters". This greatly simplifies support for me and let's me focus on other things.

My vision for the upcoming graphics support is "ASCII with benefits".

Thank you for the kind words, feelotraveller. I'll keep trying my best!

Damn it, you were right. I can't help it. I didn't even play DF while I was gone.

Thank you for the kind offer. I'll probably be PMing you.

Hi Taffer,

I'm in my yearly DF period, and as always the first thing I did (after installing DF) was setting up your tileset. So as usual I'm paying my yearly visit for thanking you for this tileset that I find so cute :)

Honestly the dwarf letters was an awesome idea, it makes so much sense to my eyes I find it more vanilla than vanilla itself. I use the sans-serif version with hollow straight walls. I do not use the Taffer colours though, because they are too far from vanilla in my opinion (e.g. gold is not yellow) and instead I use DawnBringer which is a nice balance and works well with Taffer's tileset.

Anyway, excellent work, and I'm happy that despite your recent lack of time/motivation you stick to the "ASCII with benefits" philosophy.

Thank you!

Welcome back! I think I deleted Dawnbringer because I thought nobody used it. I'll undo that. Thank you for your kind words.

And thank you for the compliment! I'm happy you enjoy it.
