Welcome to Stonesense
Stonesense is a third party visualizer that lets you view your Dwarf Fortress world in a classic isometric perspective.
All versions of Stonesense since DF2010 must be compiled with the appropriate DFHack version. Stonesense is thus usually distributed with DFHack, and will not work with any other version.
To run Stonesense in a separate window, use the DFHack command
You can try the in-game overlay with
stonesense overlay; be aware it's incomplete and not yet suitable for use as your only interface.
Configuration options can be pre-set and are documented in the
init.txt file. Many can be toggled by the controls listed in
Mouse controls are hard-coded and cannot be changed.
Left click: Move debug cursor (if available) Right click: Recenter screen Scrollwheel: Move up and down Ctrl-Scroll: Increase/decrease Z depth shown
keybinds.txt for the configured key bindings and descriptions, including zooming , changing the dimensions of the rendered area, toggling various views, fog, and rotation.
Follow mode makes the Stonesense view follow the location of the DF window. The offset can be adjusted by holding
Ctrl while using the keyboard window movement keys. When you turn on cursor follow mode, the Stonesense debug cursor will follow the DF cursor when the latter exists.
See the issue tracker on GitHub for recent bugs and issues.
- If Stonesense gives an error saying that it can't load
creatures/large_256/*.png, your video card cannot handle the high detail sprites used. Either open
creatures/init.txtand remove the line containing that folder, or use these smaller sprites.
