The Meph tileset is the first graphical 32x32 tileset for Dwarf Fortress. It was born from my research about tilesets, finding old, abandoned 24x and 32x sprites by Dibujor and Obsidian Soul, both inactive since 2015. I thought that their sprites are too good to waste and started with them as a basis for a new tileset.

This tileset also uses Utkonos 24x creatures sprites for monsters, upscaled and smoothed to 32x, and Dorens 24x machinery tiles. Thank you both! Eventually I want to do my own versions, but with 750 creatures, that will take a while.

The Meph tileset includes:
 - A graphical tileset for 32x32; 24x24 and 16x16.
 - A dedicated font/map tileset with icons for the world map.
 - A dfhack script to change the color palette based on the current season.
 - Over 300 TWBT overrides for unique sprites.
 - Over 100 unique plant sprites.
 - Over 1000 civ-creature sprites for Dwarves, Goblins, Elves, Humans and Kobolds.
 - Over 3500 creature sprites for all animals and monsters. (Thx to the DungeonSet)
 - Over 100 original 32x creature sprites.
 - GifCam, a small tool to capture gifs.
 - Dfhack and Twbt.
 - 3 different shadow files for TWBT.
 - 4 different fonts.
 - 38 different color schemes.

Optional features are:
 - Grass animation: It moves in the wind.
 - Icons for lists: Add melee unit, ranged unit, nobles or hauler to the dwarves nicknames.
 - Modded workshops: Wooden flooring and campfires.

Planned features:
 - Unique corpse sprites for each creature.
 - 32x creatures sprites for each creatures.
 - Uniquef ruit tiles for each tree.
 - A distinct style for each of the three caverns.
 - More modded workshops, like carpets/rugs, flags/banners, sign posts...

Please report any issues you encounter, this is the first test-release. I'm sure there are many somewhat hidden tiles I have missed or can improve on. And if you used this to build something amazing, please share screenshots!

Note that you require a resolution of at least 2560p width to display this correctly. Please see the included readme for further info. You can still play it with lower resolution, but it will be scaled down.

Oh, wow. I got the first download.

Meph, are you okay with your Meph Tileset being bundled with Lazy Newb Packs?

Not yet. Not because I wouldn't want it on those packs, but because it's not finished. This is a first release to get more play-testers, but I plan to work on it more. I'll probably update it fairly regularly in the near future. But I can let you know once I consider it "finished".

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

Awesome work Meph! The tileset is supreme.

Downloaded and ran the game and within 2 seconds the screen flashed, the game minimized to the toolbar, and i got an alert that my graphics driver had crashed but recovered. Any thoughts?

Edit: Second run it seems to be holding up ok. Maybe a fluke? Damn the tileset looks nice in the wild.
Edit 2: Ran three adventurers through quickly. Crashed after the third.

Wow, when did you start working on this, because it is beautiful. I think I found my new texture pack.

"Games come and go, and we all get tired of some games after time, but Dwarf Fortress seems to grab me by the leg every couple months and drags me back with it's bloody, ASCII claw. I think this game has given me Stockholm syndrome, but I love it so, and it's simplistic style yet extremely complex mechanics are like fine art, like a beautifully crafted ☼Cave Spider Silk Sock☼" - Dirk 3/31/2014

Elf crossbowmen just show up as black/grey squares, can get pretty confusing in a fight.

TWBT dislikes adventure mode because of something with the travel-map. Mifki has to update a few things. No idea about the first thing.

I see the bundled DF, Tileset and Utilities are for Windows DF. Could you give me some pointers on what I would have to do to use the 32x Tileset in Linux DF please?

I should add I am a new player but I do understand why folks are still using 43.03 rather than 43.05 (64-bit) at the moment.

EDIT : I have stumbled across the reply by jecowa to the same question in the reddit (in your own thread there) so I will give that a go and report back if I have any specific issues. Cheers.

Dwarf Fortress is highly configurable, but there are a suite of memory-hacking tools that white-hat their way into the game engine to allow vastly expanded features.  The Meph Tileset uses one of those tools to assign distinct icons to items that would otherwise look identical in game.  There have been technical issues slowing down the latest update of the memory-hacking tools, and the last version for which everything works is 0.43.03.

There's nothing wrong or especially unstable with DF 0.43.05 itself; the problem is just that tools like DFHack and Dwarf Therapist aren't available for it yet.
