Looks great!

Any UI improvements and conveniences found in other tilebased roguelikes would be a big help.

If you end up doing anything with that I'd volunteer to test as someone with reading comprehension difficulties.

I find Dwarf Fortress hard to learn, but find some roguelikes like the tile Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup very approachable.

I had fun just watching the simulation, but would love to be able to engage more with DF with some help.

I know it's been suggested in other places, but I don't recall seeing it in here: It would be handy to have a 1-tile long raised bridge look different than a 1 tile long lowered bridge.  Right now I make all my drawbridges a minimum ot 2 tiles long so I can tell at a glance if it's up or down.

That gets a BIG +1 from me!

You might be positively surprised. :)

I wonder if there is a clean way to do something for open floodgates?

That's a other good one.  What if the 'frame' of the floodgate always remained visible, but the gate part was variable?

Already in. :)

We got door frames, hatch cover frames and floodgate frames.

I wonder, how all sorts of Animated dead, created from civilized beings, will look like?
Will there be a difference in an appearance between Animated dead and Intelligent undead for civ humanoids?

The plan is to do something separate for skeletons, zombies, intelligent undead, vampires, mummies and necromancers. We haven't worked on that yet though.

Feedback for the elf sprites
It's very difficult for me to tell visually which ones are male and which ones are female. And while this might be expected, as androgynous elves are something of a trope, they all look very distinctly masculine, not androgynous. It has something to do with the severity of the highlights on their faces. It all looks very hard and rugged.

For the humans and dwarves it's a little more obvious. The human/dwarven women have red lips which lets us tell them apart from their non-bearded male counterparts.

I think another big part of the problem is the shared/similar bodies? You'll have to forgive me for these rough examples, but they're enough to convey the point. Just from the silhouette it's obvious which one is male and female.

I see your point, but using different silhouettes is a bit tricky due to the equipment. Either we have to make two sets of every piece of clothing and armor, or the silhouette gets covered as soon as anyone wears any clothes.

Meanwhile I'm in the opposite camp where elves and humans are fine, but dwarfs are too different. Either dwarfs should have a slightly smaller head, or elves and humans should have bigger.

Because right now, when they're side by side, it just looks very wrong.

Fair enough! And as long as there's support for people modding separate male/female bodies and clothing/equipment, I'll be happy enough.
