Re: What mainline campaigns are high quality?

While I myself am holding back from voting because I'm currently doing replays, I can assure you that this is not really a measure of campaign quality (mostly because no definition or guidelines what of "quality" denotes was given). The resulting aggregate is more a measure of popularity and for su...

Re: What mainline campaigns are high quality?

It's not necessary to play the campaigns to vote or comment. (There's no way of checking after all)

The aggregate of all votes and comments should provide something to work with.
It's an interesting question what % of forum users have played all the campaigns. My guess is less than 10%.

Re: What mainline campaigns are high quality?

We wouldn't be able to cover all cases, and undoubtedly there will be replies that are based on 1.12, 1.10 or earlier playthroughs, and other campaigns have changed since then.

Those leaving comments are encouraged to mention the BfW version for the campaign they are discussing.

What mainline campaigns are high quality?

There is an interest in improving the quality of campaigns in mainline. To that end, it would be useful to have a better idea of where the campaigns currently stand in relation to each other. Campaigns are listed in BfW 1.14 game order. You may vote for any number of campaigns, but note that voting ...

Re: Wings of Victory 1.0.6 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14/1.15)

...tLoBEK wrongfully depicts orcish culture in a way that is completely out of character... I also say the exact same thing you then do with SotBE in more general terms... I thought the UMC The Founding of Borstep (TFoB) did a better job of handling the ruthlessness of the orcs. For any who are won...

Thrash's recording in this thread which confirmed there were bones in a spot where my game didn't have any bones; did they get moved in the more recent version?
Yes, moved to

Re: Wings of Victory 1.0.6 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14/1.15)

Talking stock of things: To clarify, I meant I see the drakes as "warlike & wise" as the crucial part, wasn't aware of all that kniz stuff until people mentioned it and don't see it as necessary. Seems all the original fuss was over the use of the word 'breeders' along with the 'gifted' part. Which ...

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

So, constraint 1: further (incidental) depictions of Drakes in mainline between WoV and NR need to be worked to connect those dots. (Maybe not all, but some certainly) I think this is the best point here. I've been thinking about how to do a better job of it within WoV. This is not followed up on i...

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

However, the way it's set up in WoV - nonsentient females as breeders People seem to have missed that the nonsentient part was never in my handling of WoV at all . It is from the other author(s). In the 0.0.4alpha version on the 1.10 servers, it only appears once in a supplemental file, drakepedia....

Version 1.0.6 is up Changes: Remove all depictions of drake females There. See how easy that was. https://github.com/sigurdfdragon/Wings_of_Victory/commit/4000c1935dc21cb2aad67ad639bc0b088144e4df Sure, it's not really a central part of the campaign, and you can argue that just changing that one part...

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

Well, do drake females serve any useful or interesting purpose in WoV? I don't consider them central to the depiction of drakes. They can be removed. What I consider central is a reasonable depiction of creatures that are a pack of flying carnivores. And sigurd, I really would like to know where yo...

To get things back on track: I feel it would be relevant and useful to make a statement regarding my approach to how I went about completing WoV (I'm not the original author). 1. I decided to solve the problem of a lack of drake campaign in mainline. 2. Considered the available options https://forum...
