DFHack 50.05-alpha2 Pre-release
Pre-release

Image

A quick release to solve some initial issues. This release still only works with the Steam version. Compatibility with The Itch and Classic versions is scheduled to come with DF 50.06.

Installation instructions here: https://docs.dfhack.org/en/latest/docs/Installing.html#installing

Quickstart guide here: https://docs.dfhack.org/en/latest/docs/Quickstart.html#quickstart

If you missed the first alpha release, see the post here for a lot of background information

Please vote for the tools that you'd like us to work on next here!

Intro and announcements

Here is another reminder that this is an alpha release. This means that:

  • DFHack tools probably won't corrupt your savegame, but it would be really smart to keep backups of the forts that you care about. DFHack may not have fully adapted to the changes in the new version of Dwarf Fortress, and, especially at this early stage of release, there WILL be bugs.
  • Most tools have not been tested thoroughly with Steam DF. The tools that are untested will show a warning if you try to run them and exit immediately. You can run the command again to override the warning.
  • The in-game interface for running DFHack commands (gui/launcher) will not show untested tools by default. You can still run them if you know their names, or you can turn on dev mode by hitting Ctrl-D while in gui/launcher and they will autocomplete as normal. Some tools do not compile yet and are not available at all, even when in dev mode.

Note that DF's "manual" and "timeline" saves are buggy at the moment, and you should instead copy the entire save directory to somewhere else on your hard drive.

For those of you using sdl12compat, note that you will need to replace the "SDLreal.dll" file that DFHack installs with the SDL.dll (renamed to "SDLreal.dll") from sdl12compat. While we do not specifically recommend using sdl12compat, we have generally heard positive feedback about it.

Steam deck users: you might want to set DFHACK_DISABLE_CONSOLE=1 in your environment so DFHack doesn't create a terminal console. This will allow Dwarf Fortress to start in the foreground and you won't have to switch windows every time.

Finally, many people are confused when DFHack tools tell them that a cursor is required. This refers to the keyboard cursor (which used to be the only real option in Dwarf Fortress). You can enable the keyboard cursor in the DF settings, and you can show it by entering mining mode or selecting the dump/forbid tool. We're working on making DFHack tools more mouse-aware and naturally accessible.

What's new and notable? (now with more hyperlinks : )

  • A few memory alignment issues have been corrected. This will address crashes a few of you have been seeing. Please always inform us quickly about crash bugs. We prioritize getting those fixed first.
  • The orders library is now accessible for the orders import command. Please retry the steps in the Quickstart guide for a (now correctly-functioning) walkthrough
  • The layout of gui/quickfort has been fixed so it's easy to see how to rotate and transform the blueprints again.
  • This release comes with a very limited version of buildingplan. It is not configurable, it has no UI and no materials selection, but it does allow buildings placed with quickfort to get built when materials are available instead of just letting them get canceled immediately.
  • A note about blueprint and quickfort -- Only dig and build blueprint phases have been updated for the current release of DF. Stockpiles, zones, and building/game configuration need work and their blueprint modes are currently disabled. This means that those attempting to build the full-fort templates (TheQuickFortress and Dreamfort) from blueprints will be sorely disappointed. All other blueprints in the blueprint library (https://docs.dfhack.org/en/latest/docs/guides/quickfort-library-guide.html) only have dig and build blueprints, and should work just fine.
  • exportlegends has received a bit of work, but you will not be able to use it for Legends Viewer any time soon. Legends export is a combination of vanilla DF functionality and DFHack-augmented files. The basic DF functionality is just not in the current release. Once DF's own legends export functionality has been restored, DFHack's exportlegends tool will be ready for it.

Newly tested/updated tools

  • You asked for it, you got it. autodump is now ready for service.
  • tailor can monitor your clothing supply and schedule appropriate workorders to replace current clothing that's becoming worn. It will use whatever raw materials (cloth/yarn/silk) you have available, but it's still up to you to have them in stock
  • autoclothing complements tailor, allowing you to specify which types of clothing you'd like your citizens wearing. tailor and autoclothing are aware of existing manager orders, so they can both be run at once.
  • exterminate is here. use it wisely.
  • full-heal, also see gui/gm-unit for selective wound healing
  • gui/create-item
  • gui/masspit for easily dumping many caged creatures into a pit.
  • position for discovering the coordinates of the keyboard cursor. Some tools can take coordinates directly, and this is how you can find out what to pass.
  • starvingdead will keep undead bodies (and body parts) from accumulating and eating all your FPS
  • teleport will move you

DFHack 50.05-alpha2

Fixes

  • autofarm: don't duplicate status line entries for crops with no current supply
  • build-now: don't error on constructions that do not have an item attached
  • gui/gm-editor: fix errors displayed while viewing help screen
  • orders: allow the orders library to be listed and imported properly (if you previously copied the orders library into your dfhack-config/orders directory to work around this bug, you can remove those files now)
  • tailor: now respects the setting of the "used dyed clothing" standing order toggle

Removed

  • create-items: replaced by gui/create-item --multi

Structures

  • corrected misalignment in historical_entity
  • identified two old and one new language name groups
  • partially identified squad-related structures in plotinfo and corrected position of civ_alert_idx (does not affect alignment)

This release requires the Steam version of DF (see below)

Image

Hi all! We know there has been a lot of excitement around this release of DFHack, so we want to start by setting some expectations. This is an alpha release. This means that:

  • DFHack tools probably won't corrupt your savegame, but it would be really smart to keep backups of the forts that you care about. DFHack may not have fully adapted to the changes in the new version of Dwarf Fortress, and, especially at this early stage of release, there WILL be bugs.
  • Most tools have not been tested thoroughly with Steam DF. The tools that are untested will show a warning if you try to run them and exit immediately. You can run the command again to override the warning.
  • The in-game interface for running DFHack commands (gui/launcher) will not show untested tools by default. You can still run them if you know their names, or you can turn on dev mode by hitting Ctrl-D while in gui/launcher and they will autocomplete as normal. Some tools do not compile yet and are not available at all, even when in dev mode.

Note that DF's "manual" and "timeline" saves are buggy at the moment, and you should instead copy the entire save directory to somewhere else on your hard drive. Alternately, you can copy the entire DF directory somewhere else, install DFHack in that directory, and keep it completely separate from your Steam installation.

For those of you using sdl12compat, note that you will need to replace the "SDLreal.dll" file that DFHack installs with the SDL.dll (renamed to "SDLreal.dll") from sdl12compat. While we do not specifically recommend using sdl12compat, we have generally heard positive feedback about it.

Also note that this release only supports the Steam version of DF due to some technical limitations. You don't have to run it through Steam, but it does require DF to be downloaded from Steam. We're hoping that a future version of DF will resolve these technical limitations, and we plan to support all builds (including Itch and Classic) by the time we reach a stable release of DFHack.

What's new

DFHack has significantly advanced from the days of DF 0.47.05. There is a much greater focus on allowing you to do everything from inside the game, not requiring you to open the external terminal window to run commands or go to the web to look up syntax documentation. More and more tools have graphical configuration screens, and most of those screens have full mouse integration (though keyboard-only setups are still fully supported where DF itself allows).

As soon as you start up DF with DFHack installed, the first thing you're likely to notice is the DFHack logo in the upper left of the screen. If you move your mouse over the logo, a panel will pop up showing you a list of DFHack tools that are relevant to the current screen. If you're wondering "what can I do with DFHack right now", open this panel and find out. DFHack's "context detection" code has not been fully updated for the new version of DF, so the list of tools in the popup menu is very short right now. However, this list will expand greatly over the next few releases of DFHack.

The first thing you should do is hover over the DFHack logo and select the quickstart guide (hotkey: ?). This will go into more depth about how to use DFHack than the quick notes I'm adding here.

The main interface for running DFHack tools in-game is gui/launcher. It will always be first in the DFHack logo popup list for easy access. It has integrated help for all tools, showing you the usage syntax, real-world examples, and other useful information. It also allows you to autocomplete partially-typed commands and pull commandlines you have run before out of your history to run again.

DFHack windows have also progressed significantly. They are now draggable, resizable, and pinnable. For example, you can bring up gui/autochop, configure your desired log stock levels, minimize the window, pin it, and drag it off to the side of the screen to leave it up as a live status report for your logging industry. The quickstart guide walks you through exactly how to do this.

There are also many changes in the DFHack tools themselves -- too many to mention. We can just suggest that you go exploring!

So which tools are available?

You can get live updates and see which tools have been tested here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hiDlo8M_bB_1jE-5HRs2RrrA_VZ4cRu9VXaTctX_nwk/edit#gid=1774645373

This is the second usability-focused release of DFHack. In the previous release, we made initial progress with the in-game command launcher with autocomplete and integrated command help. This release builds on that start with improved mouse controls (like draggable scrollbars) and a brand new framework for on-screen informational overlays and interactive widgets that respond to what's currently happening in the game.

The cool thing is that this overlay framework is ready for use by mods, including Steam Workshop mods! All modders have to do is declare an OverlayWidget in their script code and the overlay framework will discover it and attach it to the correct Dwarf Fortress screens. Players can enable, disable, or reposition overlay widgets with the new click-and-drag gui/overlay configuration interface. You can start playing with this interface with the overlay widgets that we've already ported to the new framework, such as the date, happiness meter, and weather indicator from dwarfmonitor.

Q: Wait! Go back! So DFHack is ready for the steam release now??

A: No, sorry, not yet. We have a lot of work to do to adapt DFHack to the new Dwarf Fortress release. It might take us a few months, but you will have your favorite tools back. And we hope to have even more usability improvements ready for you then too!

Q: So, like, why are you releasing now? Don't you know that the Steam release is in a few days?

A: Yeah, we know. This release is more for those who aren't upgrading right away, like players who aren't on Steam, adventure mode players, and, of course, players who want to wait for DFHack to become available for the new version before they switch to it : )

Highlights

The Hotkeys Hotspot

Image

The major new feature is the Hotkeys Hotspot. You may not know this, but DFHack has many default keybindings that are bound to specific Dwarf Fortress screens (like the manager orders screen or the main map) that run useful DFHack commands. For example, when you're on the manager orders screen and have a manager order selected, you can hit Alt-Q to change the number of items that the workorder will produce.

The Hotkeys Hotspot uses the new overlay framework to provide a mouse rollover menu that makes these bound commands available to you in a clickable list. You can also right-click on them to open them in the in-game launcher to modify the command and/or see the associated command help. You can add more commands to this list (or take some away) via the DFHack keybinding command, too.

You can show the rollover menu by moving your mouse near the upper left corner of the screen, a little down from the top. On the main map, this spot is marked by an exclamation point (!), but the spot is "hot" on every screen, even if the exclamation point is covered up by something. You can reposition the hotspot with gui/overlay if you want it in a more convenient place. You can also bring it up with the keyboard instead of the mouse by hitting the Ctrl-Shift-C hotkey.

gui/overlay

Image

gui/overlay is the beginning of a new trend for DFHack: in-game configuration that remembers your choices from game to game without any editing of init files. Also, notice the fancy new mouse controls like mouse hover reactions and click-and-drag widgets. Expect to see more of this from DFHack in the future!

spectate

The spectate plugin has seen a good bit of improvement in this release. Once your fort is in a good, steady state, try firing this tool up to automatically follow dwarves around, switching among them periodically, so you can sit back and watch your dwarves be dwarfy!

channel-safely

The new channel-safely tool protects your dwarves from digging themselves to death while channeling out large projects. Digging a large drowning trap or a magma piston? Give this tool a try!

How to upgrade

  • Remove the existing hack/ directory in your Dwarf Fortress game folder
  • Extract the DFHack release archive into your Dwarf Fortress directory. If it asks you, let it overwrite files.
  • If you use TWBT, you can get an updated version for this release here: https://github.com/thurin/df-twbt/releases/tag/0.47.05-r8

Full upgrade instructions are available online here

Full changelog

New Plugins

  • overlay: plugin is transformed from a single line of text that runs gui/launcher on click to a fully-featured overlay injection framework. It now houses a popup menu for keybindings relevant to the current DF screen, all the widgets previously provided by dwarfmonitor (e.g. the current date and number of happy/unhappy dwarves), the overlay that highlights suspended buildings when you pause, and others. See overlay-dev-guide for details.

This is the first usability-focused DFHack release. The major new feature is the in-game command launcher with integrated help, autocomplete, command history (including history search), related tools display, and mouse integration.

You can access the new command launcher by clicking on the "[ DFHack Launcher ]" button in the lower left corner of the screen or by tapping the backquote (`) key. If the backquote key isn't convenient or isn't available for your keyboard layout, there is an alternate hotkey of Ctrl-Shift-D.

You can type part of a command to see autocomplete options. Hit Tab or click on an option to autocomplete. To pull a full commandline from your history, hit Alt-S or click on the "history search" button instead. When you type a command, its help text will be displayed in the large panel at the bottom. Hit Enter or click on the 'run" button to run. That's it! More info on the launcher here (which you can also see in-game when you type "gui/launcher" in the command box : )

From the screenshots, you may notice that text areas now have scrollbars. Click on the arrows at the end to scroll by one line, or on the empty area above or below the green part of the bar to scroll by half pages. You can also click on the command text that you are writing to reposition the cursor for editing.

Many thanks to the community members and beta testers who provided feedback on the launcher! Many of the best usability features were suggested by them! In particular, u/ZergTDG, u/Skitlee5, u/Thebuda, and u/tmPreston. You're awesome! Also D.B. Cooper, Quietust, and everyone else on the DFHack discord who gave feedback throughout development.

DFHack help itself has also been overhauled. More than 300 pages of help text has been reformatted and rewritten to make them more informative, easier to read, and easier to understand. Moreover, all DFHack tools are now tagged so that you can find them easier. Try running the new tags command to explore the categories! These tags also control what is in the list of related tools that appears in the right panel of the launcher when you are running a command.

New stuff

Apart from the aforementioned gui/launcher and tags, there's a bunch of great new stuff in this release:

  • u/wolfboyft wrote the DFHack modding guide, which will get you up to speed if you'd like to explore how to use DFHack to extend your raws modding.
  • run enable gui/kitchen-info to add more info to the Kitchen screen, including what each ingredient is good for besides cooking.
  • Hit "D" on the workorder details screen (where you can, say, set which kind of stone to use for a particular workorder) to get more control over the materials used to fulfill workorder jobs.
  • We finally have a good way to dynamically limit the size of the next migration wave with max-wave and limit growth over time with pop-control (or even enforce a hermit challenge!).
  • Get notified when creatures that may steal your food, drinks, or items become visible (e.g. keas) with warn-stealers.
  • DFHack now comes with a super useful library of manager orders! See them with orders list and import them into your game with orders import. Try orders import library/basic to get a great set of orders for basic fort necessities! More info here.
  • DFHack's implementation of DwarfTherapist (manipulator -- accessible from the u-l screen) now comes with a library of pre-made professions that you can apply to your dwarves. More info here.

We are also working mouse controls into more of the DFHack tools. For example, you can now move the blueprint preview around by clicking on the map when using gui/quickfort. You can interact with the map with the mouse in similar ways when using gui/quantum and gui/blueprint. Expect more mouse capabilities for DFHack tools in the future!

How to upgrade

A few files have moved around in this release, so if you're upgrading an existing installation, please read this section.

  • When upgrading to this release, please remove the dfhack-config/dwarfmonitor.json file. It will get regenerated the next time you run DF. If you don't regenerate this file, the weather indicator (e.g. "Rain") will overlap with the new DFHack button in the lower left corner. If you have custom modifications to this file that you'd like to keep, please merge them back in once the file has been regenerated.
  • DFHack init scripts (dfhack.init, onLoad.init, onMapLoad.init, etc.) have moved into dfhack-config/init/. If you have not made any custom modifications to these files, you don't need to do anything. Default configuration will be generated and used. If you have custom changes, please run DF once to generate the default config files and then move just your custom changes into the corresponding init files. See the docs for details.
  • The history files for the various interactive DFHack commandline tools have moved into dfhack-config/. If you want to keep your command histories, please move your existing *.history files into dfhack-config/. Note that the new gui/launcher interface will make the commands in your old dfhack.history file available for searching even if you never get around to moving that file to the new directory.

And, just like every DFHack release, please remove the hack/ directory in your DF game folder before extracting the new version of DFHack into your DF folder. There were several scripts and other files that were removed in this release. If you don't remove the hack/ directory before upgrading, the old, unusable scripts will clutter the autocomplete list in the command launcher.

DFHack 0.47.05-r7

New Plugins

  • autobutcher: split off from zone into its own plugin. Note that to enable, the command has changed from autobutcher start to enable autobutcher.
  • autonestbox: split off from zone into its own plugin. Note that to enable, the command has changed from autonestbox start to enable autonestbox.
  • overlay: display a "DFHack" button in the lower left corner that you can click to start the new GUI command launcher. The dwarfmonitor weather display had to be moved to make room for the button. If you are seeing the weather indicator rendered over the overlay button, please remove the dfhack-config/dwarfmonitor.json file to fix the weather indicator display offset.

New Scripts

  • gui/kitchen-info: adds more info to the Kitchen screen
  • gui/launcher: in-game command launcher with autocomplete, history, and context-sensitive help
  • gui/workorder-details: adjusts work orders' input item, material, traits
  • max-wave: dynamically limit the next immigration wave, can be set to repeat
  • pop-control: persistent per fortress population cap, hermit, and max-wave management
  • warn-stealers: warn when creatures that may steal your food, drinks, or items become visible

New Internal Commands

  • tags: new built-in command to list the tool category tags and their definitions. tags associated with each tool are visible in the tool help and in the output of ls.

Fixes

  • autochop: designate largest trees for chopping first, instead of the smallest
  • devel/query: fixed error when --tile is specified
  • dig-now: Fix direction of smoothed walls when adjacent to a door or floodgate
  • dwarf-op: fixed error when applying the Miner job to dwarves

  • dfhack.buildings.findCivzonesAt: no longer return duplicate civzones after loading a save with existing civzones
  • dfhack.run_script: ensure the arguments passed to scripts are always strings. This allows other scripts to call run_script with numeric args and it won't break parameter parsing.
  • job.removeJob(): ensure jobs are removed from the world list when they are canceled

DFHack 0.47.05-r6

We have some great new visual tools in this release! gui/petitions gives you a scrollable list of your pending (or previous) petitions. Now you no longer have to remember what deity you just agreed to build a temple for : )
image

gui/quickfort is a brand new UI for Quickfort. You can preview how your blueprint will be applied in the live game map, position it interactively, and see whether the blueprint will be successfully applied before you apply it.
image

and gui/quantum is a point and click interface for setting up quantum stockpiles. It will even manage the minecarts for you!
image

New Scripts

  • assign-minecarts: automatically assign minecarts to hauling routes that don't have one
  • deteriorate: combines, replaces, and extends previous deteriorateclothes, deterioratecorpses, and deterioratefood scripts.
  • gui/petitions: shows petitions. now you can see which guildhall/temple you agreed to build!
  • gui/quantum: point-and-click tool for creating quantum stockpiles
  • gui/quickfort: shows blueprint previews on the live map so you can apply them interactively
  • modtools/fire-rate: allows modders to adjust the rate of fire for ranged attacks

Fixes

  • build-now: walls built above other walls can now be deconstructed like regularly-built walls
  • eventful:
    • fix eventful.registerReaction to correctly pass call_native argument thus allowing canceling vanilla item creation. Updated related documentation.
    • renamed NEW_UNIT_ACTIVE event to UNIT_NEW_ACTIVE to match the EventManager event name
    • fixed UNIT_NEW_ACTIVE event firing too often
  • gui/dfstatus: no longer count items owned by traders
  • gui/unit-info-viewer: fix calculation/labeling of unit size
  • job.removeJob(): fixes regression in DFHack 0.47.05-r5 where items/buildings associated with the job were not getting disassociated when the job is removed. Now build-now can build buildings and gui/mass-remove can cancel building deconstruction again
  • widgets.CycleHotkeyLabel: allow initial option values to be specified as an index instead of an option value

Misc Improvements

  • build-now: buildings that were just designated with buildingplan are now built immediately (as long as there are items available to build the buildings with) instead of being skipped until buildingplan gets around to doing its regular scan
  • caravan: new unload command, fixes endless unloading at the depot by reconnecting merchant pack animals that were disconnected from their owners
  • confirm:
    • added a confirmation dialog for removing manager orders
    • allow players to pause the confirmation dialog until they exit the current screen

    • reduce required stock of dye for "Dye cloth" orders
    • fix material conditions for making jugs and pots
    • make wooden jugs by default to differentiate them from other stone tools. this allows players to more easily select jugs out with a properly-configured stockpile (i.e. the new woodentools alias)
  • list-agreements: now displays translated guild names, worshipped deities, petition age, and race-appropriate professions (e.g. "Craftsdwarf" instead of "Craftsman")
  • quickfort-alias-guide:
    • new aliases: forbidsearch, permitsearch, and togglesearch use the search-plugin plugin to alter the settings for a filtered list of item types when configuring stockpiles
    • new aliases: stonetools and woodentools. the jugs alias is deprecated. please use stonetools instead, which is the same as the old jugs alias.
    • new aliases: usablehair, permitusablehair, and forbidusablehair alter settings for the types of hair/wool that can be made into cloth: sheep, llama, alpaca, and troll. The craftrefuse aliases have been altered to use this alias as well.
    • new aliases: forbidthread, permitthread, forbidadamantinethread, permitadamantinethread, forbidcloth, permitcloth, forbidadamantinecloth, and permitadamantinecloth give you more control how adamantine-derived items are stored
  • quickfort:
    • Dreamfort <quickfort-blueprint-guide> blueprint set improvements: automatically create tavern, library, and temple locations (restricted to residents only by default), automatically associate the rented rooms with the tavern
    • Dreamfort <quickfort-blueprint-guide> blueprint set improvements: new design for the services level, including were-bitten hospital recovery rooms and an appropriately-themed interrogation room next to the jail! Also fits better in a 1x1 embark for minimalist players.
  • workorder: a manager is no longer required for orders to be created (matching bevavior in the game itself)

Removed

  • deterioratecorpses: please use deteriorate --types=corpses instead
  • deterioratefood: please use deteriorate --types=food instead
  • devel/unforbidall: please use unforbid instead. You can silence the output with unforbid all --quiet

API

  • word_wrap: argument bool collapse_whitespace converted to enum word_wrap_whitespace_mode mode, with valid modes WSMODE_KEEP_ALL, WSMODE_COLLAPSE_ALL, and WSMODE_TRIM_LEADING.

Lua

  • gui.View: all View subclasses (including all Widgets) can now acquire keyboard focus with the new View:setFocus() function. See docs for details.
  • materials.ItemTraitsDialog: new dialog to edit item traits (where "item" is part of a job or work order or similar). The list of traits is the same as in vanilla work order conditions "t change traits".
  • widgets.EditField:
    • the key_sep string is now configurable
    • can now display an optional string label in addition to the activation key
    • views that have an EditField subview no longer need to manually manage the EditField activation state and input routing. This is now handled automatically by the new gui.View keyboard focus subsystem.
  • widgets.HotkeyLabel: the key_sep string is now configurable

Structures

  • art_image_elementst: identify vmethod markDiscovered and second parameter for getName2
  • art_image_propertyst: identify parameters for getName
  • building_handler: fix vmethod get_machine_hookup_list parameters
  • vermin: identify category field as new enum

    • restore functionality to the --verbose commandline flag
    • don't designate tiles for digging if they are within the bounds of a planned or constructed building
    • allow grates, bars, and hatches to be built on flat floor (like DF itself allows)
    • allow tracks to be built on hard, natural rock ramps
    • allow dig priority to be properly set for track designations
    • fix incorrect directions for tracks that extend south or east from a track segment pair specified with expansion syntax (e.g. T(4x4))

    • fix error when attempting to set a custom limit for plaster powder in a hospital zone
  • tailor: fixed some inconsistencies (and possible crashes) when parsing certain subcommands, e.g. tailor help
  • tiletypes-here, tiletypes-here-point: fix crash when running from an unsuspended core context

Misc Improvements

  • gui/mass-remove: mass removal/suspension tool for buildings and constructions
  • reveal-hidden-sites: exposes all undiscovered sites
  • set-timeskip-duration: changes the duration of the "Updating World" process preceding the start of a new game, enabling you to jump in earlier or later than usual

Fixes

  • Fixed an issue preventing some external scripts from creating zones and other abstract buildings (see note about room definitions under "Internals")
  • Fixed an issue where scrollable text in Lua-based screens could prevent other widgets from scrolling
  • bodyswap:
    • stopped prior party members from tagging along after bodyswapping and reloading the map
    • made companions of bodyswapping targets get added to the adventurer party - they can now be viewed using the in-game party system
  • buildingplan:
    • fixed an issue where planned constructions designated with DF's sizing keys (umkh) would sometimes be larger than requested
    • fixed an issue preventing other plugins like automaterial from planning constructions if the "enable all" buildingplan setting was turned on
    • made navigation keys work properly in the materials selection screen when alternate keybindings are used
  • color-schemes: fixed an error in the register subcommand when the DF path contains certain punctuation characters
  • command-prompt: fixed issues where overlays created by running certain commands (e.g. gui/liquids, gui/teleport) would not update the parent screen correctly
  • dwarfvet: fixed a crash that could occur with hospitals overlapping with other buildings in certain ways
  • embark-assistant: fixed faulty early exit in first search attempt when searching for waterfalls
  • gui/advfort: fixed an issue where starting a workshop job while not standing at the center of the workshop required advancing time manually
  • gui/unit-info-viewer: fixed size description displaying unrelated values instead of size
  • orders: fixed crash when importing orders with malformed IDs
  • quickfort:
    • comments in blueprint cells no longer prevent the rest of the row from being read. A cell with a single '#' marker in it, though, will still stop the parser from reading further in the row.
    • fixed an off-by-one line number accounting in blueprints with implicit #dig modelines
    • changed to properly detect and report an error on sub-alias params with no values instead of just failing to apply the alias later (if you really want an empty value, use {Empty} instead)
    • improved handling of non-rectangular and non-solid extent-based structures (like fancy-shaped stockpiles and farm plots)
    • fixed conversion of numbers to DF keycodes in #query blueprints
    • fixed various errors with cropping across the map edge
    • properly reset config to default values in quickfort reset even if if the dfhack-config/quickfort/quickfort.txt config file doesn't mention all config vars. Also now works even if the config file doesn't exist.
  • stonesense: fixed a crash that could occur when ctrl+scrolling or closing the Stonesense window
  • quickfortress.csv blueprint: fixed refuse stockpile config and prevented stockpiles from covering stairways

Misc Improvements

  • Added adjectives to item selection dialogs, used in tools like gui/create-item - this makes it possible to differentiate between different types of high/low boots, shields, etc. (some of which are procedurally generated)
  • blueprint:
    • made depth and name parameters optional. depth now defaults to 1 (current level only) and name defaults to "blueprint"
    • depth can now be negative, which will result in the blueprints being written from the highest z-level to the lowest. Before, blueprints were always written from the lowest z-level to the highest.
    • added the --cursor option to set the starting coordinate for the generated blueprints. A game cursor is no longer necessary if this option is used.

  • gui/advfort: added workshop name to workshop UI
  • quickfort:
    • the Dreamfort blueprint set can now be comfortably built in a 1x1 embark
    • added the --cursor option for running a blueprint at specific coordinates instead of starting at the game cursor position
    • added more helpful error messages for invalid modeline markers
    • added support for extra space characters in blueprints
    • added a warning when an invalid alias is encountered instead of silently ignoring it
    • made more quiet when the --quiet parameter is specified
  • setfps: improved error handling
  • stonesense: sped up startup time
  • tweak hide-priority: changed so that priorities stay hidden (or visible) when exiting and re-entering the designations menu
  • unretire-anyone: the historical figure selection list now includes the SYN_NAME (necromancer, vampire, etc) of figures where applicable

API

  • Added dfhack.maps.getPlantAtTile(x, y, z) and dfhack.maps.getPlantAtTile(pos), and updated dfhack.gui.getSelectedPlant() to use it
  • Added dfhack.units.teleport(unit, pos)

Internals

  • Room definitions and extents are now created for abstract buildings so callers don't have to initialize the room structure themselves
  • The DFHack test harness is now much easier to use for iterative development. Configuration can now be specified on the commandline, there are more test filter options, and the test harness can now easily rerun tests that have been run before.
  • The test/main command to invoke the test harness has been renamed to just test
  • Unit tests can now use delay_until(predicate_fn, timeout_frames) to delay until a condition is met
  • Unit tests must now match any output expected to be printed via dfhack.printerr()
  • Unit tests now support fortress mode (allowing tests that require a fortress map to be loaded) - note that these tests are skipped by continuous integration for now, pending a suitable test fortress

Lua

  • new library: argparse is a collection of commandline argument processing functions
  • new string utility functions:
    • string:wrap(width) wraps a string at space-separated word boundaries
    • string:trim() removes whitespace characters from the beginning and end of the string
    • string:split(delimiter, plain) splits a string with the given delimiter and returns a table of substrings. if plain is specified and set to true, delimiter is interpreted as a literal string instead of as a pattern (the default)

  • reveal: now exposes unhideFlood(pos) functionality to Lua
  • xlsxreader: added Lua class wrappers for the xlsxreader plugin API
  • argparse.processArgsGetopt() (previously utils.processArgsGetopt()):
    • now returns negative numbers (e.g. -10) in the list of positional parameters instead of treating it as an option string equivalent to -1 -0
    • now properly handles -- like GNU getopt as a marker to treat all further parameters as non-options
    • now detects when required arguments to long-form options are missing
  • gui.dwarfmode: new function: enterSidebarMode(sidebar_mode, max_esc) which uses keypresses to get into the specified sidebar mode from whatever the current screen is
  • gui.Painter: fixed error when calling viewport() method

DFHack 0.47.05-r1

Fixes

  • confirm: stopped exposing alternate names when convicting units
  • embark-assistant: fixed bug in soil depth determination for ocean tiles
  • orders: don't crash when importing orders with malformed JSON
  • prospector: improved pre embark rough estimates, particularly for small clusters
  • quickfort: raw numeric quickfort-dig-priorities (e.g. 3, which is a valid shorthand for d3) now works when used in .xlsx blueprints

Misc Improvements

  • autohauler: allowed the Alchemist labor to be enabled in manipulator and other labor screens so it can be used for its intended purpose of flagging that no hauling labors should be assigned to a dwarf. Before, the only way to set the flag was to use an external program like Dwarf Therapist.
  • embark-assistant: slightly improved performance of surveying
  • gui/no-dfhack-init: clarified how to dismiss dialog that displays when no dfhack.init file is found
  • quickfort:
    • Dreamfort blueprint set improvements: significant refinements across the entire blueprint set. Dreamfort is now much faster, much more efficient, and much easier to use. The checklist now includes a mini-walkthrough for quick reference. The spreadsheet now also includes embark profile suggestions
    • added aliases for configuring masterwork and artifact core quality for all stockpile categories that have them; made it possible to take from multiple stockpiles in the quantumstop alias
    • an active cursor is no longer required for running #notes blueprints (like the dreamfort walkthrough)
    • you can now be in any mode with an active cursor when running #query blueprints (before you could only be in a few "approved" modes, like look, query, or place)
    • refined #query blueprint sanity checks: cursor should still be on target tile at end of configuration, and it's ok for the screen ID to change if you are destroying (or canceling destruction of) a building
    • now reports how many work orders were added when generating manager orders from blueprints in the gui dialog
    • added --dry-run option to process blueprints but not change any game state
    • you can now specify the number of desired barrels, bins, and wheelbarrows for individual stockpiles when placing them
    • quickfort orders on a #place blueprint will now enqueue manager orders for barrels, bins, or wheelbarrows that are explicitly set in the blueprint.
    • you can now add alias definitions directly to your blueprint files instead of having to put them in a separate aliases.txt file. makes sharing blueprints with custom alias definitions much easier.
    • new commandline options for setting the initial state of the gui dialog. for example: quickfort gui -l dreamfort notes will start the dialog filtered for the dreamfort walkthrough blueprints

Structures

  • Dropped support for 0.47.03-0.47.04
  • Identified scattered enum values (some rhythm beats, a couple of corruption unit thoughts, and a few language name categories)
  • viewscreen_loadgamest: renamed cur_step enumeration to match style of viewscreen_adopt_regionst and viewscreen_savegamest
  • viewscreen_savegamest: identified cur_step enumeration
