What happens if you have a ton of Z-levels (like the edge of a steep cliff)?  Do the lower levels get so dark that they effectively turn black?

It depends on the maximum number of levels allowed and amount of darkening, both will be configurable.

Awesome stuff mifki. I love where this is going.  :)

Is there any way to have transparent sprites so we can see what's under things? Would make the game beautiful with a good texture pack.

I have been looking at the readme:

Quote
# Kind is I for item or B for building
# Id see buildings_other_id.h or items_other_id.h
# Type see building_type.h or item_type.h, may be empty
# Subtype is some numberical value, don't know what values correspond to what

Could somebody point me towards the buildings_other_id.h and items_other_id.h ? And can I somehow specific a subtype, or specific tiles from buildings?

So not just WEAPON, but WEAPON:ITEM_WEAPON_SWORD_SHORT, WEAPON:ITEM_WEAPON_SWORD_LONG, etc.

As well as building tiles. A 3x3 workshop has 9 tiles, how do I specific which tile goes where?

Subtype numbers correspond to order of subtypes in the raws; in vanilla DF, for example, weapon 0 is ITEM_WEAPON_WHIP.

They're right in the root folder of the download. Open with any text editor.

Argh, I did look in the Text will be Text download from Milo Christiansen, he just uploaded a version with 3 tilesets. But he did not include those files... my mistake. Simply looked in the wrong folder.

So all items are read the way they appear in menus/stockpiles... alphabetically from the raws. I will test this. :)

I realize this isn't adding to the discussion here but I had to share.

I had a dream last night of the most amazing fort that I need to build, but in my dream, I could see all the Z levels below the camera. My mountain/ocean based dream fort was all the more beautiful when I could see my whale trap from above, and my sprawling above ground crops on the mountains.

I think it's safe to say that I love you mifki.

alphabetically from the raws.
The raws aren't alphabetical. It sounds like it's just in order of listing in the subtype text files. For example, ITEM_WEAPON_WHIP comes alphabetically after ITEM_WEAPON_AXE_BATTLE, but is listed first.

Is anyone else waiting obsessively for some hint of a release for the multi-z-level view thing?  I jump to the thread as fast as I can anytime I see another post has been made.

Maybe people should love for the sake of loving, and not with all of these optimization conditions.

The raws are alphabetical. The objects in the raws are not. But the raw files themselves are read out alphabetically from top to bottom. Sorry for the confusion.

Still several days to wait - need to do add more optimisations.

Any interesting savegames on dffd with multilevel landscapes/forts to test on and make beautiful screenshots? :)

If you're fixing to add more screenshots in the meantime, I for one would love to see what it looks like in default.

Don't know of any highly-z-level-utilizing cliff forts for you, though.
