runesmith lets you edit values of skills, modify dwarf stats, mood status, mood material, stop tantrum spirals by editing happiness, reset mood on berserk, melancholy, and babbling dwarves, teleport dwarves around, kill things, kind of allowed us to heal dwarves but not very well, and it also lets us rez a dead creature or dwarf as undead.

Therapist and whatever lets you look at things, runesmith lets you modify things directly.

From what I've read in the dfhack thread, each of those features is available via dfhack, today.  If not directly, via dfusion and other contributed scripts.  It would also be a reasonably straightforward exercise to write such features yourself, meowmix, even if you were learning ruby or lua while doing so.
But I get it, some people prefer a GUI.  8)  Personally, I'm just happy to have the features, regardless of the interface.

I've read through and searched the manuals that come with DFHack. Most of those features are mentioned, such as adjusting skills, happiness, resetting moods, killing things off, and teleporting dwarves/creatures/items around. But I have not yet found a mention of how to modify a dwarf's stats. Maybe I missed something? I'll have to ask.

Something like

Code: [Select]
unit=dfhack.gui.getSelectedUnit()
unit.body.physical_attrs.STRENGTH.value=2000

would do the trick, if you're talking about physical stats.

Re: Runesmith - Dwarf Value Editing?
« Reply #1564 on: February 07, 2013, 09:38:29 pm »

But you can not edit any values :( , I just asked. =(
Is there no way to edit dwarf values outside of Runesmith? I know that was the main reason I used it. That being said, not for cheating so much as for creating interesting characters in my fortress.

Use DFhack with vjek's scripts - they were somewhere on the wiki. Also DFhack thread has tons of scripts which let you edit attrributes, mood materials, preferences, character traits, ressurect a dwarf, turn instant teleportation on and do a lot of things. Actually there is nothing in Runesmith not covered in DFhack exceptfor GUI. You will have to search scripts for this though - and i really hope somebody will make a repository of dfhack scripts at last:)

I seem to remember that Runesmith allowed you to spawn individual hostile creatures.  Am I crazy, or thinking of something else?  If it's not Runesmith, what is it?  I'm planning to make a community fortress that's effectively part D&D campaign.  I've come up with a few ways to do so (manually planting tamed animals and subjecting them to a syndrome to turn them into monsters, for example), but a utility would probably be easier.

The problem comes with the people like me who just get too confused without a GUI. =/

Does it work with 34.11? If so, where do I put the download? Either there's no instructions or I missed them.

What is the status on this Project?
I do use Dfhack from time to time, but I feel that I had much more control with runesmith to see what was happening to my dorfs.

The status is: on the back burner.
Some of the stuff required to revive it is in place thanks to Japa and his work on IsoWorld - a good example on how to connect to a running DF instance and add more RPC calls. It's definitely possible to do now, with (relative) ease.

However, I'm still pretty busy. I'd be happy to help anyone who wants to pick up the project (with any details related to establishing communication between Runesmith and DFHack). Otherwise, it might still take me a month or two to get back to this.

Don't worry, peterix, we understand.
