Cant use tiletypes
« on: March 31, 2016, 10:26:45 am »

when I type "tiletypes" on dfhack console it says something like "tiletypes needs an interactive console to run" or something similar I dont remember exactly. What should I do?

I'm on a phone, so I can't confirm this, but I'm pretty sure that an "interactive console" means you have to be in the look menu, or some similar interface within dwarf fortress. If you're just sitting around unpaused, or in the stocks menu or something, tile types won't work. It needs a single point to work off of, otherwise it won't know where to paint.

Again: Phone. From memory. May not help.

The biggest issue seems to be size.  A 1x1 room would allow for maximum child desecration (waiting on someone to sig that)
