, thanks so much for your excellent pack. I started playing DF a couple of months ago on Windows. Recently I moved back to OSX (Hackintosh, 10.11.1) as I plan to get back into doing some development. I was very pleased to see that the pack was just as full and well maintained as the Windows pack, and indeed includes a bit more as well. I really like what you've done with the DFHack optionals in particular.
(On that note: thanks for including Designation History, which greatly surprised me. I worked on the Lua UI of that, my first (small) DFHack contribution. I wasn't expecting it to reach anyone until the next DFHack release. lethosor did all the hard stuff of course
One quick request: my preferred graphics pack is Spacefox, and I was wondering if you might consider including two versions of that? It was great to see that you have the latest version, with Leo's latest overrides, but unfortunately there's an issue that makes these a little annoying to play with.
The new overrides Leo added show up a limitation in TWBT, not unique to Spacefox: "bleeding tiles", which in Spacefox mostly affects workshops. This has been confirmed by mifki as a fundamental issue in TWBT, I believe caused by overriding the same game ASCII with multiple different tiles. mifki has mentioned trying a work-around whereby he refreshes all graphics every frame but is worried about the FPS impact.
Maybe he will fix it soon, but maybe he won't be able to and/or FPS will be too big an issue. In the meantime I find playing with the latest overrides to be quite distracting, and it's possible others might find the same.
Therefore, would you consider including both versions? By which I mean the latest version you already have, and also the previous one - the one that was in your Github up until Leo did his latest update a few weeks ago. I seem to recall it's dated July 2015.
I quite understand if this is too much work, and I can easily continue maintaining my own local copy of older-Spacefox as I am now. But thought I would ask in case you are interested in considering it.
In case you're not familiar with the issue, here's an example:
Thanks again for your wonderful work on this great pack!
