Gold Plated tileset by DrD_AVEL

I decide to build an installer for graphical version of DF 31.15 with my tileset.

You can download installer of DF version 31.15 here.


.ZIP version of 31.15 Gold Plated


Spoiler: "tileset in .PNG" (click to show/hide)

Some screens with this tileset:


This version includes:
- dwarves, elves, goblins, humans, kobolds and monsters from *Spsr*,
- animals from *Bane*
- medics from *Phoebus*
- walls and floor tiles from *Mimocrocodile-pixelart-kun*
- some tiles from *Ironhand*


Walls and floor looks like this:

This looks really smexy. My only complaint is that the floor and rock tiles and their colors clash mightily with the color and detail level of the rest. Still, looks great and I love the font.

It looks really good, save for one thing (in my probably not so humble opinion): I dislike the way the water/furrowed loam/etc. tiles look. They appear to be as per the Mayday Graphics set, just with the bottom chopped and put atop, with a little smudging as well. Anyhow, I don't mind the smudging, but the bottom-to-top chop makes me confused on the actual location of where the tile is (hence why I don't like it).

The rest looks fantastic. Well done, my good sir.

But the tiles and statues don't actually look like that :(

Rather lacking in terms of consistency but still quite neat.

I especialy like the capital letters, though the O and X are bit quirky. Still those are a problem in all tilesets that dont use pure ascii.

Well I might not be one to talk, as im the sort that realy doesnt like having minerals in his mechanisms or his dwarfs gender being 'bag'. I only use non-ascii where it wouldnt show up anywhere silly.

Would you be terribly offended if I stole your X idea? The bins look fanastic and the letter is still quite readable. Up/Down stairs are a lost cause.

Of course, I agree with stole), and with do changes if u want.
I am copied a lot of samples to this tileset from other tiles too.. but I don't ask for permissions.. it is bad? In my opinion, tilesets can be absolutely free for gaming and Improvement.
Otherwise, if players do not use understandable tilesets, many people obtain a problem of understanding the Matrix:D

I don't think it's required to ask permission, I just prefer to :)

Thanks.

I must be crazy, but I don't know where else to ask. I asked Lemunde and he didn't seem to understand what I was asking, so I'll try asking you.

I'm interested in the graphics for Lemunde's dwarves.
http://mkv25.net/dfma/map-8001-arrowglows

The tiles used for game elements look great, but where are the graphics for his dwarves themselves? I even went through Lemunde's uploaded forts on the map archive trying to collect all the job graphics, but I want a complete set.

Maybe I missed the memo on his set of dwarf graphics, but they look like I want my own game's dwarves to look.

I hope I'm being clear in asking for the graphics for the dwarves shown in Lemunde's screenshots. If anyone knows wehre I can find them, I'd be very grateful. I'll be scanning the forums today for any sign.

Thank you!

I think you've come to the right place, because I was looking for for Lemunde's dwarves too. And I almost wanted to pull out this dwarves from screenshots of Lemunde's fortress... But then I find it!
This most hidden and wanted (for some gamers) dwarven graphics set is... from.......  Beefmo !!  ;) I find it when I download Dig_Dwarfier and start it.

It is strange, but Beefmo don't register his beautiful graphics set at http://dwarffortresswiki.net/index.php/Graphics_set_repository ... why?.. I dont know.

P.s. in another case I also use Sphr's Dwarves - this set is amazing/fantastic/glorious/magnificent too, so check it out, if you don't.

And thanks to Sphr, Beefmo and Lemunde, guys!

Ohey, our tastes are the same, DrD_AveL. I mean about dwarves. I find your tileset a bit unoppropriate for my tastes, but the quality is cool :P.

P.S. I don't want my post to sound abusive... So I state what I mean by "a bit unappropriate":
1) Water tiles are "misplaced" because of the way they look.
2) "x" cursor is too squished vertically
3) I prefer "side view" of tables and chairs because they are used in other places.
4) I am not a huge fan of "dotted" landscape, although I use it from time to time.

Other than that, it looks cool. And the letters are beautiful.

It's very pretty.

I just wanted to compliment you; I prefer ASCII so I won't be using it.

But it's very pretty.
