Runesmith - A DC like tool
« on: June 11, 2010, 01:26:44 pm »

    Runesmith is a Dwarf information viewing and editing tool inspired by the original Dwarf Companion. It uses the DFHack library to interface with Dwarf Fortress and Qt to provide a robust and professional looking cross-platform GUI. It allows you to easily view and edit various aspects of a Dwarf or Creature with the ability to export a choice of stats to either a CSV or XML for easy import into programs such as Microsoft Excel. Don't forget, if you like it, Rate it  :D

    Editable items currently include:
    • Happiness
    • Skills
    • Attributes
    • Labours (Multiple may be selected to be removed)
    • Traits
    • Mood (including mood skill and materials) Warning: Turning moods on isn't advised right now!
    • Position
    • Civilisation
    • A large collection of various creature flags, an example being Has mood and Had mood
    Additional features include:
    • The ability to kill every creature of a certain race (Genocide)
    • Export to CSV or XML
    • The ability to set the main race that you are currently playing with for mods or adventure mode. This allows functions that would normally be restricted to Dwarves to be used in games where the playable race is not Dwarven
    • The ability to set all the attributes of all the creatures that are of the main race to a user specified value
    • The ability to set all the skills of all the creatures that are of the main race to a user specified value
Version 0.1.20 has now been released! Download link below:


"A tool that allows smithing (editing) of the digits and letters (runes) that control all life in DF. By smithing these runes, the metagods (players) can meddle with DF mortals to suit their games, be it recasting a soul into a new species body, blessing and cursing individuals or just to make predictions of when a mortal will attain the next degree of competence to guide them on how they should spend their limited time." - Psieye - (http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=57003.msg1324765#msg1324765)

Qt, so it should be nicely cross platform, especially with Dfhack.

Actually .NET is actually pretty cross platform if you're careful using Mono.

And cheat out DF bugs :).

I really loved DC, because it allowed me to set up any community I wanted (editing gender/stats/name of any dwarf). It made the game much more enjoyable.

If you will somehow find how to change appearance values, it would be awesome.

Ahahaha I only just realised what you were talking about! Indeed he is, do you think I should colour code the values or something?

I liked the values color coded, it made it real easy to find who was unhappy.

Can't wait for it to be able to edit stats.

I'm going to link this in my guide.

Is it rude to ask for the differences between this and for example Dwarf Therapist (which happens to be the one I have been using for a long while now). Is this faster? More info? Or just another UI?

Dwarf Therapist is for assigning jobs and managing dwarfs.

Dwarf Companion now known as runesmith is for editing dwarfs entirely. Changing stats, moods, if it's alive or dead. etc.

Yeah DT is for managing what jobs/labours dwarfs have etc. This is for doing things like changing a dwarf's strength to max or making him a zombie. I won't be implementing any functionality that is available in DT, since DT is very good at what it does and a) I don't want to tread on people's toes and b) it's not the functionality I'm trying to replace :) I also use DT regularly

I really like the big list lay out. DT's grid view is very overwhelming in larger forts.
