The file on the server is fine, since this is the first report about TWBT not working from over 2500 downloads.

Edit: Wow, just figured out that I could fake see-through miasma/smoke/mist... at least for furniture and items. Not sure if I can get the color right, but don't you hate it, when a room/corridor is full of miasma and you can't see anything? Worth making a few sprites for that? ^^

definitely support the approach.

i am currently not using your pack - only installed the older version onto the Linux LNP - of course missing a few sprites and cool new features that way.

Your post on reddit

My reply:

The invention of a simple bicycle by using parts of a excellent bike.

In general, I have a suggestion - I give you a dwarf pattern, you draw a set based on it, where to get beard patterns you know. The result will be two compatible sets of dwarves, one of which will be have your name.
Spoiler: dwarf pattern (click to show/hide)

p.S. Why my reply here? Because, I got a shadow ban on reddit (actually this was my first post there).

I'm not sure about your bicycle metaphor, but I'll keep it in mind. I wasn't going to redo all the dwarves/bears, that was just for fun. But the items are more interesting. Seems like most people prefer the large sprite version. :)

What is the maximum amount of layers we can have? Are things like that hitting performance badly?

It's not about adding a new layer, I technically cheat.

I'd make a new item sprite that looks like "item + smoke/miasma" and override the smoke/miasma with that.

Shouldn't affect performance at all, except making saving/loading a tiny fraction slower, because it increases the filesize by a few KB. ;)

Nice, looking forward to it.

It sounds like a lot of manual work though, but can be automated. If you haven't, think about doing that by script. With pngs should be pretty easy to do with Python or Photoshop.

Is it possible to turn off different wood colours?

Only manually, in plant_standard.txt and plant_new_trees.txt. An easy workaround would be redirecting all wood types to one "standard wood". That's an easy mass find&replace. Open both files, search for "[TREE:LOCAL_PLANT_MAT:WOOD]" and replace with "[TREE:PLANT_MAT:tree-id:WOOD]" and all trees give you the same wood. For tree-id you can take any tree in the files... for example MAHOGANY should have a nice color. ;)

If you do the see-through mist, I can finally realise my fps-killing dream of a massive waterfall falling through the middle of my fortress through all the layers :D

i built a fort under a 10zlevel waterfall and the meeting hall had fortifications towards the fall. it was amazing  as long as it lasted.
