Simple Attack Traits: Aggression / Defiance

I searched for this, and didn't see it. Again, I humbly ask the forum masters to get rid of it and spare me the embarrassment in case it has been proposed before. I'm guilty of throwing many ideas out, a few which have been proposed before (and for which I apologize). Aggression +X damage when attac...

Random Maps -- Default for Fog of War should be ON

This is half a question and also potentially a bug notice. If you play a Random map -- the default is Fog of War OFF. Considering that all other maps start with Fog of War ON -- I was wondering if this was a design decision or if it was just a mistake. My suggestion is to keep Fog of War ON as a def...

If you could pick five units to make a custom faction...

Just a question for fun.
What five units would you pick to make your custom faction? (from mainline only!)

I'd pick...

* Drake Burner (leadership, archer, mage)
* Elvish Archer (archer)
* Necromancer (mage unit)
* Ghost (scout, melee)
* Spearman (main melee, cannon fodder)

Re: Easier way to create new units and races

I don't think this one is a waste of time. I've created my own era, faction, and units. I do think it is a pain, for most normal users. It's not that it's really hard -- but that it could be easier. I think what would be nice is a way for people who are playtesting new ideas for eras/factions/units,...

Re: Campaign Gold Carryover: Unit Taxes and Selling

Question: When you're playing a new campaign for the first time, how are you supposed to know what units you need to keep to win future scenarios when you haven't played those scenarios yet? This is definitely going to rehash old debates about how to deal with carrying over campaign gold and how to...

Re: Improving Feeding Trait (to be more like proposed bloodlust)

I like it, but I think the heal at +12 is pretty big. Maybe a combination of the two? +1 max hp, +4 hp? Yeah, the reason I think the +1 max hp just isn't that interesting is because it's really just a slow way of increasing the level 2 ghoul's max hit points. Yes, the ghoul past level 2 can get mor...

Re: Random Map Generator Improvements

@Rhu - Yes, you can twiddle the settings to your heart's content. But as some of the sliders do not even have a visible numeric scale, how are you supposed to record the settings you picked? I do draw the line at dragging the slider across and counting the clicks as I do so. And even embedding the ...

Re: Shifting Elvish Sorceress (and Human Mage) - Racial purity?

You've managed to miss the fact that: 1) rebels have elves, woses, mermen and humans, not just elves and humans 2) loyalists have humans and mermen 3) northerners have orcs, trolls and nagas 4) knalgans have dwarves and humans 5) undead have undead, humans and bats 6) drakes have drakes and saurian...

Shifting Elvish Sorceress (and Human Mage) - Racial purity?

This is my last idea for the day... (sorry again if this bothers people) I've been playing Wesnoth for a while and I always thought the fact the Human Mage was in both the Human and Elf unit lists was sort of a missed opportunity. I also thought the Elves ended up with two wizard type units at level...

Random Map Generator Improvements

Hi, and again I apologize if this has been mentioned before. I like playing random maps on multiplayer. Do other people like to do this? Because I think it deserves its own create game setting. Playing a random map game is sort of different choice than just picking a map (since you're often fiddling...

Re: Giving appropriate names to Computer player leaders?

Could you code such a generator as to stick [CPU] at the beginning or end of a computer player's randomly generated name e.g. "Gweddry [CPU]"? Thematic-ness gained, without losing the ability to insta-identify a computer player... I couldn't agree more! I find it annoying to have to guess...

Improving Feeding Trait (to be more like proposed bloodlust)

I think the Undead "Feeding" trait is a good idea but the implementation isn't great. Adding +1 Max Hitpoints per kill is basically the same as increasing the max hitpoints for a level 2 ghoul (and a very weak kill bonus for level 2 ghouls). I wanted to make two proposals: 1) Make Feeding ...
