There were two bugs in the morphing, so I must have changed to script without testing it again at some point. I've fixed the issue with selecting an entry in the list, but the behavior when typing something is not fixed.
As far as I can see currently, there's either something wrong with the DFHack widgets, or I have to supply something to it for typing to work. In both cases, I expect every showListPrompt usage to spew errors (and return the first item in the list, regardless of what was typed (it behaves the same for adding clusters, at least). I need to investigate that further.

In the mean time, I've updated the script so list selection works.

Edit: It was indeed a case of an incorrect usage of the widget, which was quite easily fixed once identified. There were three cases of this (add inclusing and nest were the two others). That issue has now been fixed.

Wow, I wasn't expecting such a fast fix! Thanks a ton.
And sorry about double posting, I wasn't sure where it was best to post but I'll be not to do it in the future.
Thanks again.

awesome script, im generally a noob user and trying to weed out fliers/versmins to squeeze in more FPS. wonder what kind of magic higher tier players can do. spawning a river out of thin air is still challenging, but the other options were fun.

sorry if its been discussed before, any plans on subregion/biome manipulator? you know the F1 keys during regional embarks. id imagine something similar to the layer switcher l key.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but it sounds like it might be what the Region Manipulator deals with. There you can change which surrounding world tile's each mid level tile belongs to. It can be noted that those hacks are transitory, as DF reverts to what the RNG seeds generate if you change the focus to a different world tile, and that's the reason there are two different scripts: one for the world that makes permanent changes, and one for the local level, where changes are kept only if embarking without changing the focus.

No, there's no guide for anything...

I don't recognize the issues reported. However, I would make sure to change the focus (i.e. the world tile DF views) to a different tile and then back, as the mid level map info (the 16*16 tiles inside the world tile) is generated as the world tile comes into focus (and is discarded when the focus is changed). To make sure, I'd also make sure to exit and reenter the "feature shell", which is the 16*16 world tile area the world tile belongs to, as that removes and recreates information as well. Newly generated mid level tiles should take modified river info into consideration.

Okay i will try that, i was just curious because in the river editing section from manipulator everything seems correctly set, all infos update on the tiles that already had a river, but only the local tile without any river did not show what should be there regarding to river edit.

I do believe I did change focus back and forth when testing out the river manipulation functionality, and I think I didn't have to exit the feature shell (i.e. I just moved the focus one tile away and then back again).

I couldn't find the file in your github scripts repository (link from the first post).  Got it from dropbox so no problem there, but you might want to check/update the link?

Looking forward to the wondrous manipulations that await me.  8)

Thanks feelotraveller. The link pointed at the "master" branch, not mine with my scripts on it. I've changed the link to point to the page with the script itself (and I hope you'll enjoy messing around with it).
