Sorry about that. The TWBT content isn't installed by default anymore. It's so that the twbt version and non-twbt versions can have slightly different versions of the files that are better optimized for them. You'll probably want to override the non-TWBT versions with the TWBT versions.

I was wondering why my bins and up-down stairs were both generic X's when I could swear they used to look better, and was disappointed to discover that apparently as you say PE's starter pack no longer installs the TWBT version of Phoebus (or any graphics pack?) which seems really silly to me since it does include TWBT (and enables it by default, I think?)

Do you know what would have to happen to convince PE to revert that change? I like his starter pack but if I have to go copying directories around and editing text files by hand just to get the tileset to look as intended, that kind of defeats the purpose of the pack for me.

It's not obvious but all it takes is this:

The TWBT components are no longer installed by default on the repo. This is to allow TWBT to get the cool TWBT transparency features without making the pack look worse for non-TWBT users.
Here's how to install the TWBT components:
  • Open the /LNP/Graphics/Spacefox/ folder.
  • Copy & Paste \graphics\Spacefox to make a duplicate in case you mess up or don't if you never deleted the rar file it's easy to get back.
  • Copy the contents of the /raw/art/ folder to the /data/art/.
  • Copy the contents of the /raw/init/ folder to the /data/init/.
  • Copy the "onLoad_gfx_Spacefox.init" file into the /raw/ folder.
  • Launch the Starter Pack launcher, go to the Graphics tab, and double-click "Spacefox" and reinstall it into your saves.
This will give you dwarves and creatures without the background around them.
It will let you see the floor behind most of the furniture.
It will give you a text font designed for use with Spacefox.
It will make the workshops look fancy again.
And lots of other stuff.

That but with phoebus. Somehow PeridexisErrant's DF starter pack does not mention on the front page any of that info or that it is not installed as default. So it really is pretty easy to miss it.(not that one reads that info..unless it's their first time. You'd need to know which hole to put it in.)

Meph's pack comes with twbt enabled however because without it, it'd be bad. But that is also why it is good.

Yeah, I think I understand now why things like bins and stairs stopped looking good when using Phoebus in PE's pack, and I understand how to fix it, I just don't understand why PE apparently changed it to look worse in the use case that I imagine must be by far the most common (TWBT enabled). All that fussing about with directory and file copies strikes me as something that users of PE's pack shouldn't have to do, because avoiding it is exactly why they're using PE's pack in the first place, so I wondered if jecowa had any insight into why PE did that and how we might convince him to change it back.

PE's pack has a thread - I recommend asking there instead of wondering here.

There was a typo in the siegers' campfire code. When the fires went out, so did the game.

I noticed today that my pig tails have a leafy icon exactly like quarry bushes (and their leaves), which seems odd. Is there no unique icon for pig tails? Or is there something wrong with my installation of the pack?
