Stonesense is a third party visualizer that lets you view your Dwarf Fortress world in a classic isometric perspective.
This used to be the official thread for feedback, questions, requests or bug reports.Please see the new Official Stonesense Thread
We are always looking for help on Stonesense, and we are in particular looking for isometric sprite artists.
So if you want to join us in creating the Official Stonesense tileset, let us know by posting in this thread!
Please note however, we must reserve the right to screen contributions.
We do this to preserve a consistent look for the official tileset, hope you understand:)Latest Version

compatible. The Stonesense Content RepositoryThe Stonesense Content Repository
is where you will find user made
extension packs to improve and customize your Stonesense installation.
And if you're a modder or artist, this is the
place to show people your work!Note:
Stonesense Slate is only compatible with the 2010 versions of DF, that is 31.x. If you are using an older version of DF, the Granite release is still available
.If stuff's not working
If you are unable to connect to DF
, before doing anything else, try updating to the latest Memory.xml file. This
is a direct link to the latest version known to be compatible with Stonesense. Stonesense Slate 2.2 should be DF31.16 compatible.If the application fails to launch (version 2.1 only)
("The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002)"), you might be missing some runtimes. This should really only happen if Windows update hasn't run in ages or for any other reason is many years outdated. You can try downloading the Visual Studio runtimes from Microsoft:Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package
(2.6MB)Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package
NB! Some people have noted that the second package works better from this source, put up by McBeer:http://www.easy-share.com/1912193426/vcredist_x86.zip
(unofficial, but seems to work for A LOT
of problems)Ubuntu 10.10 problems
In Ubuntu 10.10 ("Maverick Meerkat") by default disables the ability of one program to read the memory of another. This is will stop Stonesense and any other DF tool from working. Please see this thread
for a suggested workaround. Thank you rmunn
for bringing this to our attention.
For version 2.3
* DF31.21 compatible
* Support for multi-threaded rendering
