Re: What you should know to make your campaign easy to translate

If a sentence feels better in English with a name included, but would still work without the name, what's the better option? a) rewrite the English to avoid including a name b) keep the name, but add a translation hint that it's not necessary: # po: both speaker and $other_healer are elvish shamans ...

Re: Scenario Review: SoF 9 - Caverns of Flame

Would it help to show a narrator message (or the objectives dialog) after the eruption, saying the expected victory condition has happened, and to press "end scenario" for the epilogue?

That's the south-east leader, the ring is on the hex of the south-west leader (4,24), where the friendly bat was.

Re: The Rise of Wesnoth: Midlands

Gameplaywise I rather prefer this scenario to the swamps. It's a much greater challenge and I like the tactics of wide field battles against vastly superior enemies. There is one problem though which is the reason why I've only been through it once on hard and that is that you cannot get a loyal wh...

Re: Scenario Review: (UTBS) 5. A Subterranean Struggle

1) What version and difficulty level did you play the scenario on? 1.15.1+dev, including the new mushrooms 4299 (will be needed to watch the replay) and 4336 (updating this map to use the new mushrooms, is automatically included in the replay). Warrior (Challenging) 2) Do you think the difficulty i...

Re: Scenario 23: Test of the Clans

Maybe we should add a hint on easy, either a narrator's message at the end or by listing it as a bonus in the objectives.

Re: (Missing) Campaigns in version 1.14x

There's "persistent data" which can be used by any campaign, and is used by Legend of Wesmere. In multiplayer LoW can be started from any of the five chapters, and if the previous chapter was completed (in MP) on the host's PC then the recall lists persist. It's not a new feature, it's been in LoW s...

Re: Notability guidelines

The notability guidelines page doesn't seem to reflect the input in this thread, nor the rule suggested by a Wiki admin in private conversation ("any leader who only exists in a single scenario of a campaign and whose sole function is to recruit units is not notable"). Chompey is considered notable ...

An always-logged-in bot that's playing a game with title "everyone's on 1.14", on a map whose preview looks like the Wesnoth logo?

Re: Legend of Wesmere dates

SoF "A Bargain is Struck" takes place after "Council Ruling" but when Landar was still alive. SoF "Epilogue" takes place 15 years after "A Bargain is Struck", which is before LoW "End of War". Although these elves were part of Landar's rebels, I don't see anything in those scenarios that says Landa...

Re: Filtering for Unit ID on [set_extra_recruit]

set_extra_recruit is one of the tags that doesn't expect a [filter] around its filter, so it should be just:

Code: Select all

[event]
    name=start
    [set_extra_recruit]
        id=Leader1
        extra_recruit=Unique_Unit
    [/set_extra_recruit]

Re: Female Avatars

It would be good to have another female-led campaign into mainline, but at the moment the major races that don't have their own mainline campaign are the Saurians, Nagas and Trolls - none of which seem likely to have the player strongly associating themselves with the character. (This is a personal ...
