Not with Zookeeper's suggestion of making everything work as both a weapon special and a unit ability. I'd have to second that, considering the annoyance I was having earlier with trying to make a unit ability that acts like steadfast but doubles dodging instead of resistance.

The commands are rather obviously intuitive for the most part, and there's a wiki for the ones you can't figure out. /help should be the first thing you type, really. I don't see why it's hard to figure that one out. Figuring out the /msg shortcut for /whisper and the /me for /emote, etc, is just a ...

Re: small, balanced 1vs1 map

Paterson's 1, 3, and 4 points are valid. Point 2, however, is something I've noticed in all maps that confuses me: why is it that villages are never to be placed next to mountainous terrain (in which Knalgans get 40-70 dodging) but often near forests (in which Rebels get 40-70 dodging)?

Yeah, it pisses me off when I enter games and just get kicked instantly. Being able to alter the name of the game you create is for a reason, people! Mark it as private. v_V

Ah. Should work. I was debating that earlier, but wasn't sure how to make 'em invisible. Now I just realized it. :P Thanks.

Did you try to use it as an ability, instead of a weapon special (your macro naming and the description would imply this)? ...Aha. That's why I didn't think of your idea earlier: I wanted to make an ability, not a weapon special. Meh. The weapon special will work if necessary, but I'd really like i...

Meh. I didn't edit a thing since that last post, and suddenly, when I re-opened Wesnoth, Elusive stopped working. ¿Por qué?

It should have a different name. That's not what "marksman" means.

I think I know the unit to which you're referring. I've seen it once before. Isn't it in Extended Era? I suppose it's excusable there; lots of units there have pretty horrible grammar.

Because the original thread was locked and so you made another thread about the exact same thing. In most forums, that's grounds for a 3-day ban.

Sweet. Thanks again. It does work indeed. Here's the ability in its final form, in case anyone else wants to use it. It's pretty overpowered, though, but I'm sure one could find a balanced use for it for some units which are weak enough in other aspects. #define ABILITY_ELUSIVE [chance_to_hit] id=el...

Unit Ability: Elusive

I'm trying to make an ability which halves an opponent's chance to hit while the unit is defending. I'd tell you how far I've gotten so far and ask if you have any idea what I'm doing wrong, but so far there's nothing I've tried which I didn't already know would fail miserably. Do I have to do a tri...

Versed "in", not "on", is the expression, but the word does indeed exist.
