Re: Children of Dragons

Just wanted to pop my head in to express my thanks to Elvish_Hunter for resurrecting CoD. And thanks Hulavuta - it's nice to know people like it. As Elvish_Hunter quoted me saying, RL is simply too busy ATM to be able to spend any time on this. I'm glad someone else has the time to look after it pro...

Re: Children of Dragons

Hi Tyr, Thanks for the detailed comments - there's a number of good suggestions and feedback in there which I will attempt to incorporate into the campaign next time I actually get a chance to make some changes. That probably won't be for at least another 6 weeks or so as RL is too busy ATM. Will de...

Re: The Fall of Wesnoth (yet to start)

Yeah, I started one too but didn't have the time to continue it. Didn't get far though so my stuff probably won't be much help (plus it was for 1.2 anyway).

Re: Children of Dragons

I've just uploaded version 0.8 to the campaign server. In this version: * Leaving the mountains has been completely reworked. * Sea Journey has had significant changes made also, primarily the addition of villages both on the ship and in the water. * Balancing changes throughout. * Translation chang...

Is it a problem on my side?
No, I don't think the code has been updated to handle the maps since the forum was upgraded. They'll get to it eventually. :)

Artwork for Children of Dragons

BLM has offered to start doing custom artwork for my Drakes campaign, Children of Dragons - so I figured I'd create an official thread here. :) Here is what he's done so far: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v209/isy3001/dragonsRule.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v209/isy3001/nobleFight.jpg ...

Children of Dragons

Hi BLM, Thanks for the offer of artwork - I'm certainly more than happy to accept contributions! :) I'm not much of an art critic though, so I would definitely recommend you post in the Art Workshop forum (which is designed for art contributions for user-made campaigns) to get some quality feedback....

Can you tell me what parts you like and which you don't? I'm completely fine with improving or redoing the maps. I like the second one more than the first. In fact, I've incorporated a slightly modified version of the second one into the campaign already. Don't expect to see it on the server any ti...

I like this idea - I think it would improve the quality of the feedback too, as it is surely easier to comment on a scenario as soon as you finish it than having to wait until the next time you get to the forums (if you come here at all). One addition I'd add would be the ability to attach a replay ...

I've had a look at the maps, and they both have several ideas I do definitely like, though I'm not entirely convinced on either of them. I've converted them to 1.3.x format, and thought I'd post them here for others to comment on: First, the map for the first level (Leader of the Drakes): [map]borde...

Thanks for the maps, I'll have a look at them shortly. BTW you can post maps on the forum using [ map ] [ /map ] (minus the spaces, obviously). The sprites for the Noble/Lord/Chancellor line are based on some images neoriceisgood did quite some time ago that never made it into mainline - I took his ...

Hello! I would like to volunteer to help this campaign. As I see it, there are a few areas needing work: 1) The maps aren't so polished, when I heard "drake campaign" I immediately thought of the chance to put great maps into it. Yeah, maps aren't my strongest point. I've been thinking about trying...

You're really much better off learning WML and hand-coding it than using Campgen. Campgen is useful in some ways, but you're going to have to delve into the WML sooner or later anyway.

Well, many of the existing campaigns have good (or at least reasonable) storylines, just that for whatever reason the person who created the campaign wasn't able to complete it. Just because it's not the epic tale you were thinking of doesn't mean the story is no good. ;) :P Another option would be ...

Children of Dragons is now officially available for 1.3.x :D Bumped the version number up to 0.7 to reflect the change. I'm also thinking about making some changes to the campaign, so would appreciate some feedback on the following: * I'm considering dropping or replacing "Leaving the Mountains" - t...
