Re: 1.14 MP server login requirement

I mean, is it really that hard to say that you don't want to talk right now/talk about that right now? It is for me.. Because I understand human psychology ;) If they see me online or playing games for next 5 hours but not find time to talk it would look like I hate that person or something :D They...

Re: 1.14 MP server login requirement

Aren't you effectively ignoring people by constantly changing your username in order to avoid them though? it's different :) they think you are not there.. so it can't upset people. People are such beings that get upset easily if you tell them something bad or ignore them.. but they totally dont ca...

Re: Unit genders

It doesn't really bother me much either way, but if you are going to be putting effort into this, I'd suggest avoiding units that have armor. There's no way you'd be able to tell a male from a female Heavy Infantry, for example, and "boob armor" unsurprisingly wouldn't offer very good protection.

Re: Quick way to decide if a WML variable is numeric?

You could also use lua to create a conditional WML tag:

Code: Select all

function wesnoth.wml_conditionals.is_num(cfg)
  return tonumber(wml.variables[cfg.variable]) ~= nil
end

Re: 1.14 MP server login requirement

Because not every single person who's used the MP server is as nice as the subset of people you've encountered. That is certainly true, but it is important to weigh one cost against another. If on average it is so rare for any one player to encounter a cheater, for example, and presumably they suff...

Re: 1.14 MP server login requirement

I'm not going to go into details of any moderation actions that've been taken, but suffice it to say that such actions have indeed been necessary. The wesnoth online community has been healthy for well over a dozen years without needing anything like this. Why is it 'necessary' now? This is really ...

I'm not going to go into details of any moderation actions that've been taken, but suffice it to say that such actions have indeed been necessary. I also wouldn't consider a login requirement to be "so much security and verification".

Re: instalation on Ubuntu 16.04 don't work

Install all the packages listed here. Otherwise, you're going to have to provide more information than "it doesn't work".

I'd assume you'd need to put the [switch] inside of the [then].

Re: Revisiting Wesnoth unit descriptions

Sickly has a rather different meaning than I intended, and to me at least, doesn't really have much connection to the negative traits Goblins can get. Is there a lore explanation for them having only negative traits you would prefer? "smaller and weaker" covers it as well as a unit description need...

Re: Revisiting Wesnoth unit descriptions

Okay, one more specific idea for the spearman; swap "unfortunate" with "sickly". This maybe vaguely hints at their negative trait inducing ailments: In any race, there are always those rare individuals who, by stroke of bad luck, are born much smaller and weaker than the rest of their kind. For Orc...
