I made no adjustments to the therapist, the custom plugins are only for dfhack, the ones falconne did.

And thanks for the heads up, I didnt even know it is on dffd as well, I checked splinterz links and got it from his website..
Okay good that should make therapist easier to add.
I found the list of therapist releases here, the first post of the therapist thread does not seem to be up to date.
It looks like splinterz idea of a Linux version is to run everything in Wine so I will have to build that as well.
Hopefully the memory layouts for Linux are up to date so it will actually work.
I would consider any therapist I build myself experimental for now due to compatibility problems between Linux distributions.

falconne replied to my PM and said that the plugins should work in Linux, I will let you know how they work after I build them.

Sure, just set it to ascii in the settings and then manually install whatever tileset you want to use. :) If you cycle through the tilesets in the settings after that, they will replace yours, so take care.

But if you enjoy ascii, why not just use the ascii that is included ? ^^

Oh,and I also wrote a reaction for poison covering that uses ANY poison. So even imported stuff from caravans, desert scorpions, giant cave spiders, bees, whatever.

Hi I'm loving your mod because it finally makes the game playable for me after hitting 150 dwarves or so.  I'm having a little trouble though.  I try to use Phoebus' tileset and some things seem strange.  The marble is just a plain white square and some stone like shisct and a few others are just plain block colors like light tan or brown.  I found a post a while back saying that it might be left over from you modding earlier I think.  I looked through anything in masterwork I could find relating to Phoebus' and all the art looks like what we see using Lazy Newb Pack with marble showing up correctly.  If this is a know issue how can I go about manually installing or changing how this appears?  I tried installing Phoebus' manual download from the main thread and when I ran the init updater it didn't change anything.  When I ran the save game updater that came with it the game no longer launched saying it couldn't find data/art/mouse.

I guess that's almost a second question.  I know in the LNP when you change tilesets it makes you update your savegames.  I had one world going with Phoebus and the marble and some stone was just plain squares like I described.  I started another game with ironhand to see if the marble color would be different.  When I wanted to change to Phoebus' a lot of things just stuck as ironhand.  Is there a proper way to change tilesets for masterwork?

Sorry for the multiple questions and if it's confusing at all.  I've tried doing searches for the answer in the forum but the thread is getting so long I can't locate anything.

Also I've seen a few people having trouble with world gen crashing before even hitting year 50.  I encountered this with the good biome plains preset.  I changed my tileset to ascii and could generate 500 years without a crash.  Then exited the game and put in ironhand like I said before to test marble color.  Everything worked then.  It just seems after I enter a world and save, I can't change tileset for the life of me.

Thanks for any help.

@moisesjns: How much is in data/art is irrelevant. The data/init is important. Please read up in the wiki about installing tilesets, the init must list your custom tileset name and size. (24x24 or 16x16 or whatever you like to use) I wont explain everything here, the wiki covers it quite well. :)

@kamikazi1231: The slight changes in the inorganics are actually by design. I did that long, long ago. People rarely comment on it, because they are used to it. If you want to change it you have to do this in the raws, not the graphics. You need to change the tile numbers of the inorganic mats.

About updating savegames with different tilesets: impossible while using this mod, because of the Settings.exe I include. Lets say you have Phoebus and disable 50% of the buildings, then switch to Ironhand, enable all buildings, and update the savegame. It would completely break everything, because the changes the Settings.exe makes require a new worldgen.

You could do it manually, but it would be a lot of work. I dont know how to affect the worldgen crashes some people get, I still stand firm to my word and say: I never got one with the mod. Since I cant replicate them, I cant narrow it down.

@Everyone: Checking the Forge Screen I noticed that the thing is a mess... so I cleaned it up :) Here the comparison, left is old, right is the new one, alphabetized. I did group the 3 pewters together, and the welded stuff I put at the bottom. I deleted some artifact-leftovers as well, orichalcum was double since I added orc fortress, and illithid/philosopher shouldnt have been there at all. All fixed :)

build chair does something weird
I get a submenu of
all
leave
move


some sort of list to choose from, choosing escape brings me back to a point where I can place the chair.

Meph:
when I read "digging stop: no", I think that a dwarf continues digging when damp stone is located.
normally I prefer to keep the dwarf NOT digging, but disable the pause.

that is what I was referring to, I don't see how your simple binary option can allow for that, if it indeed doesn't stop digging when damp stone is located

Also
I think farmer's workshop belongs in the farmer construction list?

I'm not sure if this is my modded exe or not, but the phoebus tileset () sometimes dissapear... it could just be my patched binary though.  apparently all text has been fixed for phoebus, but not the ()'s

Ok thank you for clearing that up.  It seems that when I generated a world with ASCii and then switched to Phoebus without starting a new world most things look correct.  Are you saying there may be some problems because I switched tilesets on that world after generation?  I made sure to have all the options exactly the same so I'm thinking I shouldn't run into anything game breaking.  I guess I'll just have to play and see.

Yes. ^^ Let me know how it goes.

@thistleknot: I did build chairs in the succession fort with this version, I didnt get any submenu. This must be from some dfhack script...

And Yes, the simple binary choice button in the GUI does exactly what you want. For the third time: It will get rid of the pause and the camera refocus, but the designation will still be cancelled. I probably should have written a better tooltip for it...

And no, I cant move vanilla workshops, so I cant but the farmers workshop into the custom farming category. Nor any other workshop besides soapmaker and screw press. And I dont even know what I should say to your patched exe and whatever is missing from phoebus.

@ all: Ported the archeology system from the alpha, archeology is vastly improved now, with higher, but completely random rewards. :)

Special thanks to:
- Deon, because I blatantly stole the bitterroot/shadowleaf poisons for testing purposes.
- Falconne, for his dfhack plugins. Seriously, check them out.
- My brain, for keeping me awake till this was finished.
- You guys, for showing the patience. First update in 3 months, yeah. *dead.

Personal note:
- This entire thing is pretty much untested. I run 2 very short test forts, checked the errorlogs, did debugging on the GUI, but havent run every single reaction one by one. I do hope that I killed more bugs then I created, and wish everyone happy bug-hunting :)
I do know of one cosmetic bug in the GUI: If you enable orcs, close the gui and reopen it, the logo will still show a dwarf. The button will correctly show that you selected orcs however, so this is a very minor concern.

God, this is so annoying! No matter in what context i press c in foretress mode i get this screen...
I have tried removing the companions macro and various other macros associated with the letter c but nothing seems to work. This is truly the most annoying thing ever. I have to exit this screen every. fucking. time. I had no idea how much i used the letter c in this game, well, now i know... and i want it back. Can anyone tell me how to disable this please?

Go to \Dwarf Fortress\hack\scripts\ and delete companion-order.lua. That should do it.

I wonder why it shows up in fortress mode, it is a plugin for adv. mode to control companions. But I know that I build chairs ingame without it popping up...

I don't know if you working with Splinterz, but his DT he's working on has a v19 that is unreleased, I have a copy, but I'd inquire you beseek him on it, it fixes some MAJOR bugs in the optimizer, primarily with #'s

Yes, meph is in one of those moods that favors us all.  Great work.

I did get a worldgen crash earlier, but I reran without changing anything and it worked fine a few times after that.  Whatever it is, it's just purely random.  Could be a perfect world conflict, or just a plain vanilla anomally. Not worth futher thought.
