I want to use this font used by DF Wiki as a tileset. For example, dwarves should look like this:

enter image description here

Smooth and round, instead of the bearded version in the default tileset, i.e. curses_800x600.png.

I had a glance at DF Wiki's tileset repository, and found nothing similar. Is there an existing tileset for this purpose, or should I disable the tileset and specify some font instead?


If you're using Lazy Newb Pack, the current version has various options which seem to meet your needs. These are found under Graphics, Customize.

I also checked Tileset Repository for large square tilesets, as are necessary to have smooth circles. Hack_square_64x64.png might be the best. Sample in game, and full tileset included below.

  • Sorry, but I didn't mean this. I just want my dwarves seem round and smooth, but not necessarily use "vanilla" Code Page 437. It's my bad. – nalzok Mar 18 '17 at 4:10

    @SunQingyao Updated my answer, hope it helps – Angzuril Mar 18 '17 at 4:38
  • Thanks. In fact I've tried Hack_square_64x64.png before I asking this question, but it failed without error messages: the df window didn't even pop up (I'm playing vanilla df under macOS). Maybe I should post another question on that issue. – nalzok Mar 18 '17 at 5:05

    @SunQingyao That might be best. It worked for me, but I'm on windows, with LNP. Vanilla may not support the dimensions of the set. – Angzuril Mar 18 '17 at 5:40
