Re: Khalifate feedback thread

Lord of the Rings is low fantasy because magic is rare and not generally available to the common people.

Re: Khalifate feedback thread

Lord of the rings is not high fantasy.

Re: New Rise of Empires

Well that's why I want to avoid having too much complexity on the empire/economy side of things. I want to let Wesnoth's beautiful tactical combat system shine while adding some new complexity.

Re: Khalifate feedback thread

Personally I don't think that the Khalifate faction fits in with the rest of Wesnoth. They just don't seem high fantasy enough to me. Plus their resistances are weird. I have no issues about religious stuff or anything. They just don't seem like default material. OTOH I think it would be cool to add...

Re: New Rise of Empires

Huh... There doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in this. In any case I have another dilemma currently and that is whether I should pair each faction with one specific dream matrix or have multiple dream matrices possible for factions and dream matrices that are allowed for multiple factions. If I ...

Re: New Rise of Empires

More thoughts on cities: So I started working on the implementation for cities and I was thinking that there are two main ways I could go with this. In all cases cities are going to start out occupying 1 hex and eventually be able to grow to occupy 7 hexes (the original and the 6 surrounding). Also ...

New Rise of Empires

Preface: Anyone remember Rise of Empires? I was working on that mod but I got fed up with many of it's fundamental problems and the overall obtuseness of developing anything substantial in WML. Finally real life got in the way and I forgot all about it. Now I recently installed Ubuntu Linux on my co...

Re: Rise of Empires Era

Well, there is a version on the 1.4 add-on server: http://files.wesnoth.org/addons/1.4/Rise_of_Empires.tar.bz2 Maybe this will help you, though I'm afraid you'll have to rewrite everything if you want to port it to 1.8 or 1.9 (since there were many changes during the last years). Crend Thanks for t...

Re: Rise of Empires Era

Does anyone have a copy of the last Rise of Empires I released? I seem to have lost mine and I want to work on it again but I don't remember how I did some things.

Re: Rise of Empires Returns

Ok. I didn't really remember that they were a real nation just chose a name i thought sounded kinda cool. And I said nothing about them being inherently evil. Just that they had some lousy rulers. Now once they found the books of the dark one and his followers that changed but that could hardly be c...

Re: Rise of Empires Returns

Yes yes I know about all those fantasy stories and many more. But to take a story concept and give it your own twist is not breaking any copyright laws. Things like 'the dark one' and 'the breaking' and the 'free peoples' are very generic terms and wouldn't be copyright infringement like it would if...

Rise of Empires Returns

So it's been a while since I've been into Wesnoth and I'm planning on resurrecting my dream for rise of empires. However this time it will be more extensive and more my own. The era will have a complete backstory separate from wesnoth. Some of the details are still a tad sketchy but here we go. Note...

Re: War of Chaos Era

Um... I really like your era but you really need to fix the RIPLIB issues. Many units decrease the number of strikes they have when they level up which is not a good idea.

Re: Super - units

Make it (omnipotence + firststrike) and then 100% resistances to everything... And make his HP 99999 for good measure.
