Command: gui/quickfort

Apply pre-designed blueprints to your fort.

Keybinding: CtrlShiftQ in dwarfmode

Keybinding: AltF in dwarfmode

This is the graphical interface for the quickfort script. Once you load a blueprint, you will see a blinking “shadow” over the tiles that will be modified. You can use the cursor to reposition the blueprint or the hotkeys to rotate and repeat the blueprint up or down z-levels. Once you are satisfied, hit Enter to apply the blueprint to the map.


gui/quickfort [<search terms>]

If the (optional) search terms match a single blueprint (e.g. if the search terms are copied from the quickfort list output like gui/quickfort library/aquifer_tap.csv -n /dig), then that blueprint is pre-loaded into the UI and a preview for that blueprint appears. Otherwise, a dialog is shown where you can select a blueprint to load.

You can also type search terms in the dialog and the list of matching blueprints will be filtered as you type. You can search for directory names, file names, blueprint labels, modes, or comments. Note that, depending on the active list filters, the id numbers in the list may not be contiguous.

To rotate or flip the blueprint around, enable transformations with t and use Ctrl with the arrow keys to add a transformation step:

CtrlLeft: Rotate counterclockwise (ccw) CtrlRight: Rotate clockwise (cw) CtrlUp: Flip vertically (vflip) CtrlDown: Flip horizontally (hflip)

If you have applied several transformations, but there is a shorter sequence that can be used to get the blueprint into the configuration you want, it will automatically be used. For example, if you rotate clockwise three times, gui/quickfort will shorten the sequence to a single counterclockwise rotation for you.

Any settings you set in the UI, such as search terms for the blueprint list or transformation options, are saved for the next time you open the UI. This is for convenience when you are applying multiple related blueprints that need to have the same transformation and repetition settings when they are applied.
