Re: The North Wind (1.12/1.14 Port of SP Campaign)

The North Wind is now available on the 1.14 add-on server and thus will be available from the Steam version tomorrow.

Re: Preferred Fate of the Dunefolk (formerly Khalifate)?

Dunefolk is not mainline yet, they are not in the Default era, it's Default+Dunefolk (well, Khalifate right now). It's basically just an add-on that everybody have, you don't have to install it. This isn't quite the usual definition of mainline. Normally mainline is used to refer to anything shippe...

Re: Preferred Fate of the Dunefolk (formerly Khalifate)?

The problem is that the extensive rebalancing occurring now is evidence that the Dunefolk are not well-balanced and as such should not be included in Default for 1.14.

Re: Preferred Fate of the Dunefolk (formerly Khalifate)?

It's much too late in the cycle for this change. The faction cannot be balanced sufficiently in the month remaining to the projected release. As for this poll specifically, the options are misleading if meant as a referendum on immediate addition and inexhaustive regardless. Before merger with the d...

v0.3.0 has been released! This was originally intended to include S00 or S02, however I was sitting on enough bugfixes and content improvements that I wanted to roll out a release.

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Tangent warning! And no interbreeding between Wesnoth races can produce offspring (unless this aspect of lore is also changed) which fits the textbook real world biology definition for the term "species". I've seen this mentioned a couple of times in this thread, and I'm curious as to the basis of ...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

I'd like to see the unit names prefixed with "Desert".

Arif → Desert Swordsman
Khaiyal → Desert Horseman
Mufariq → Desert Cataphract
Naffat → Desert Firebrand
Rami → Desert Rider

And so on.

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

I feel a bit late to this thread, but I'd like to comment a bit on some of the proposed names. Dunefolk strikes me as workable, but as Crow_T mentioned I'd be concerned about evoking the Dune universe more than necessary. Dune/Nomad Tribes/Kingdom don't flow well enough IMO. Likewise for Desertfolk....

Re: The North Wind (1.12/1.13 Port of SP Campaign)

Any idea of when the rest of the campaign will be released (or at least the second scenario)? 2030.... Hey, at least I'll beat out the release of Half Life 3! :P Jests aside, this project is still very much on my mind. I have been going through a number of personal transitions and I'm not as tightl...

Re: Statement on UMC content licensing changes

Or you did read license, and then you release that you cannot include the resource. It would mean that search for fitting resources becomes more troublesome, since you have to both look at picture (which can be easily done through units.wesnoth.org ), and to its license, which cannot be easily done...

Re: New main menu music!

I'm a lot happier with the crescendo and finale now, don't know if the former is a placebo effect or not, but it definitely sounds complete to me. Great work! Some of the things I really like: I feel like this revision captures the essence of more songs. Maybe I'm just paying more attention, but for...

Re: New main menu music!

This sounds great! I have just two comments: First, I'm in agreement with doofus-01 that the ending could be a little stronger. That's the opening phrase of the main theme repeated one last time. I understood what those notes were, but also see what Inky is saying. Would it sound more resolved if th...

Re: New main menu music!

I love what you've got so far, the concept of referencing as much iconic Wesnoth music as possible seems tricky to pull off without it feeling like a collage, but I feel like you've done a masterful job of that. The only bad part is that it ends just as it gets to the good part :D :hmm: The end soun...

Re: Age of Karun and Kapou'e

I actually really like this thought, but I believe Kapou'e is presented as Karun's physical rather than metaphorical son. It could simply be both. Right, I'm fine with that, as I said. I see.. so basically, Kapou'e is not like some kind of 'king' sitting in Barag Gor all the time, but only takes le...
