Re: A Sylph description is a bit too much transcendental

I've never suggested a blind person has an advantage against a seeing person (other than that of surprise, which will wear off), only that their disadvantage isn't as great as you might think, and that they would have an advantage over a one-handed person in a wheelchair.

For SourceForge it'd just be the weekly downloads of the .dmg vs the .exe files of the most recent version.
But that doesn't include Linux…

Re: A Sylph description is a bit too much transcendental

The blind person would win every time. Wheelchairs are noisy with all those motors and stuff. If you're fighting a (trained) blind person, they'll know exactly where you are from the slightest sound. Plus, training is really the primary factor. If it was an untrained blind person, or a trained wheel...

Re: A Sylph description is a bit too much transcendental

I don't see anything indecipherable in there. Perhaps it's a little over-flowery, but it seems to basically make sense to me. Some parts don't make much sense anyway, like "they loose the ability to see the physical world" how do they fight then ? How they coordinate various things ? Um… what? That'...

Re: filter_wml vs formula

The main reason to use [filter_wml] is if you want to filter on the contents of unit variables. I think even that can be handled via a formula, but it's probably more convenient and readable to use [filter_wml][variables].

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.3 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

Spoiler'ed the entire post since pretty everything I'm responding to is also in spoiler tags. Partly the reaction of the saurians is due to their desperate situation. These two saurians individuals, lead by Arinexis primarily, have been fighting a guerilla war against both Wesnoth and Wesmere, to av...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

While true, I guess what I'm really asking is whether having interactions with so many different races is actually necessary. Giving time and detail to lesser used races is good, but do there really need to be Southern Orcs? There don't have to be elves because there's a forest, or dwarves because ...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

Thats a give/take relationship you add in orcs you take away other opportunities for other ideas/races. saurians, drakes and other minor races that are lacking. from in this work it sounds like the dunefolk, saurians, drakes, naga are going to be the main focus where Elves, dwarves, trolls, merfolk...

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

Just to be clear, I'd personally prefer it starts somewhat earlier, but I think what I described in my previous post is about the latest place in the timeline that I'd be okay with.

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

Well this was my attempt justifying a timeline where the golden age of the dunefolk take place after Garard the First and the Second, as suggested by yumi. At the end of the "Age of Fear" beginning of "Silver Age" of Wesnoth seems a good start to place dunefolks "Golden Age". While it was a suggest...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

So it's more like: the Drakes give the Orc tribe a chance to prove themselves with a champions' duel, and if the Orc loses, his tribe should better prepare to fight! Else, Drakes retreat and leave that tribe alone for the time being, and go raid somewhere else. It's not like a "you are our Orc slav...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

At the massive size of the island it wouldn't make sense for to be one massive volcano. Just noting that volcanoes don't necessarily occur in isolation. With the size of Palmiya, it could easily be two or three or four volcanoes… or it could've formed from a hotspot like Hawaii, in which case there...

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

This is where they started to build their first ever cities (Th'arwya, Kesh, Serrul ...) They had never built a city before their cataclysmic war? That seems a touch odd… why do they suddenly start building cities after the war, then? Especially the lack of wood after the war ended. What exactly do...

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

However this may change when they realize the true power of the Ruby and the level of risk involved in Wesnoth's plan of raising a whole new sun. Feeling that this would endanger them as well, they'd feel compelled to intervene, however late. Yes, in fact it would not surprise me if the dunefolk, l...
