Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

I think TSG's campaign description should drop the bit about being for new players, as the recommendation is to play the tutorial and AToTB before TSG. I'd like to keep AOI. Agreed that it has almost no story and no additions to lore, and that's bad. However, for a rookie campaign, I'd say the scena...

Re: more difficulty levels and max gold limit

So I guess the easiest difficulty could be a story walk-through with warnings that it’s much easier than how it should be ? That could be done as a mod that would work with almost any campaign. Right-click on a keep to spawn Armageddon Drakes on all vacant castle hexes, or something similar that le...

Re: 3 directories of core Wesnoth game data

No, that's not normal. But... Why does your system update often crash? If your Linux distro's core application is unstable and Wesnoth has problems for you that aren't being reported by anyone else then I think the diagnosis has to start with the assumption that it's probably something wrong with yo...

Re: path finder usage & functioning

The tag's implementation is in data/lua/wml/find_path.lua

Not all WML tags have their own file, many are implemented in one of the large files in the parent directory.

Re: path finder usage & functioning

[find_path] is implemented in Lua (as are most WML tags), and it uses multiple calls to wesnoth.find_path to generate the set of data returned to WML.

Re: Failed to load scenario (#@%$!)

Just a sanity check - do you have the [scenario] tag with the right id= to exactly match the [campaign] tag's first_scenario= ? Turning on engine logging with --log-debug=engine might help, but there's no log message yet for the specific case of not having a scenario with the right id. That will be ...

Re: questions about Wesnoth-Lua

IIUC, the wesnoth module is a table of functions, which can be added to or even overridden. The table is created, and a lot of functions are added in, src/scripting/game_lua_kernel.cpp.

Re: Place Fog

As far as I know, placing just specific locations of fog isn't supported. What is supported is resetting the fog (putting fog everywhere) and then clearing only the areas that are currently visible - for a start-of-turn event that's not too bad, but if the player has already moved this turn it may b...

Re: spawns.lua + Random map = Lua errors

If your random map generator can put villages next to impassible/unwalkable terrain then you should check for that too.

The two mainline maps that use this code aren't randomly generated, and all hexes adjacent to villages are walkable non-borders.

Re: [preload] [prestart] [start] events

The main place for these docs would be the wiki's EventWML page. For the first message in this thread, I think (but I'm not sure) that the definition of sides takes place before the [story].

Re: portraits of female trolls

So far there's no canon lore about troll reproduction. The Tactics Puzzles add-on discusses it, but about all that establishes is that some orcs don't know either.
