Duerer 15x15 v.0.6.A [TWBT 40.24/Classic 42.02]
« on: August 10, 2014, 02:54:07 pm »


That's it. Engraved Dwarf Fortress.
The idea of this set arose after a series of experiments including noise application to other tilesets, and, in other hand, after 4 year study of art history. Resulting tileset looks like hand drawn graphics and engravings made in XV-XVI century or maps of same epoch.

Current features:
— 2 versions of tileset:
    — Duerer Classic, that holds ascii-based and semi-graphical tilesets, proposed to be used as is.
        If you like something simple, or like to play vanilla — this is your choice.
    — Duerer TWBT, a version created to be used with DFHack and "Text will be text" plugin
— modified "jade" color scheme by Vherid

More features will be added later, when are done

The outside screenshot looks amazing.  :o

May I add this into MasterworkDF? And are you planning on making a more graphical version, with the special characters replaced with actual icons... for example the tables, cabinets, chairs...

PS: Nice Signature on the upper right. I think I know this from somewhere :P

Sure. And yes i think i will dig deeply into graphics after a while, but now this set needs to be polished.
There should be my sign i think :) but nevermind. This gif is reproduction of Dürer's "Knight Devil and Death".

Wow, that's beautiful, it looks like a tapestry. I like the aesthetic research that you put into it. The engravings and floors are very nice. I'm not particuliary fond of symbolic minerals because it's like putting a sign "dig here for ore", it hurts immersion a bit and is too much hand-holding for the player. But it's an amazing tileset nonetheless and a clever balance of ASCII 'purity' and aesthetics. Well done.

Could you please post a screenshot of that fort (or any other fort with engraved walls and floors) with obscured engravings? Just set [ENGRAVINGS_START_OBSCURED:YES] in the d_init. I think it would make it appear much cleaner.

Edit: Another thing: Not sure if you already know this, but you can make walls merge into natural looking stone. Ironhand does this really well. There are 8 hardcoded wall tiles that are used for "ends", when a smoothed wall hits a natural wall. :)

1. There it is. definitely cleaner

2. I guess i know what you are talking about
tiles 183,184; 189,190; 211-214, right? That's one of the things i didn't knew how to draw at the moment. Thanks for advice, Ironhand's looks really well.

Lol, now i see that it looks more like tapestry than engraving. I've seen that something wrong here, after i decided to draw diagonal strokes instead of horizontal, but i was forced to do so, because 1px horizontal strokes produce annoying flickering of screen, at least on my computer. Maybe i'll do something about it next week.

I'm looking forward to your hare and rhinoceros sprites then.
On a related note, have you considered picking the colors from an actual Dürer painting?

Problem for now is that actual Dürer-like graphics requires me to change colours of environment to brown-to-gray palette. It's do-able, but i need some time to implement that right way, because i don't want green colour (nor others) completely missing (at least i think so for now).

Really loving the outside screenshot you have there, looks gorgeous. Only thing that irks me (Sorry, I don't mean to sound harsh!) is the dwarf tile you have. I don't really like them :( Looks like an angry man with a beard, and I had to zoom in to even tell that :-X Maybe it's just me?  I really like your walls, and those ore tiles though ;)
