Re: cycle the units by proximity

Well, I'm not sure it's feasible, as it could introduce "loop" in the unit cycle. If implemented in a smart way, the next unit would be progressively farther away, and cycles would be avoided. However, I see a problem when using this multiple times (with moves or entire turns in between). The order...

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

I generally agree with you. If nothing else the new names would at least be easier to remember. Some of the names though sound strange to me (e.g. Pyromonger). Other names are very broad (e.g. Warrior). I'd suggest leaving the name "Khalifate" and using it as prefix (-> Khalifate Warrior) I also ag...

Re: Wesnoth2, Wesnoth, Inc, and other things

I've been itching to create a HD Wesnoth for a few years now. The current graphics are very nice however scaling things up a bit wouldn't hurt -especially in the age of HD screens. It doesn't have to be 3D (I would be naturally inclined towards 2D), yet 3D could help produce 2D graphics with a more...

Re: MP Modification Ideas - the Thread

Several scenarios in several campaigns implement something like that [peasants revolting]. If you can give me exact scenario and campaign i can actually go take a look at how it had been done, for any of these. I think the last outdoor scenarios in "The Hammer of Thursagan", where you fight your wa...

Re: MP Modification Ideas - the Thread

-Healing gives Exp: Healers receive 1 xp per unit healed. Has been debated ad nauseam. Bad idea because it would unbalance the game. -Dynamic Unit Cost: Every time an unit is recruited, recruitment price of it's type goes up by one. Everytime an unit of that type dies, price goes down by one. "Unde...

Re: Self healing for Healers

@ beetlenaut POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS Increase cost to recruit units with healing. Increase xp to advance to next levels. Reduce healing to +3 and +6. Reduce combat stats (hp, attack etc). I think self-healing (regeneration) makes healing units too powerful. I would not give healers that ability in gener...

Re: [mainline/UMC] Manual advancing and different AMLA syste

There are two problems: 1. If you have a unit very close to advancing, the AI usually ignores it. RIPLIB. 2. Max-level units are too useless. Here is the solution: Disable auto-advancing and let the player advance a unit with enough XP whenever (s)he wants during his/her turn. Change the default AM...

Re: Units Stat Summaries

Hi everyone. I used to play a game similar to Wesnoth called "Armies of Gielinor". At first when I started playing Wesnoth, I was really disappointed at how difficult it was to tell the difference between a bowman and an elvish archer. ... Here's what I propose, and I would like for you to review i...

[interface(?)]: Plot key game statistics after scenario

Some strategy games such as Age of Empires show a plot of the key statistics after a game: http://img.gamefaqs.net/screens/0/1/e/gfs_51767_3_2.jpg I think this would be nice to have for Wesnoth as well. It would also be suitable as a Google Summer of Code project, as it's not too difficult to implem...

Re: Scenario 19c: Cliffs of Thoria

I played this scenario under 1.10.2 (mobile version). This scenario used to be an insane challenge on the hardest difficulty, but now it is so easy that you can just walk through. (1) What difficulty level and version of Wesnoth have you played the scenario on? Hardest, 1.10.2 (2) How difficult did ...

Re: [interface]: Separate observers from recording games

Any time you join the 1.12 server, there is a greeting message which states You can find replays of all observable games here: http://wesnoth.org/replays/1.12 Additionally there is a link to the code of conduct page you referred to, with the privacy statement. So I don't think there is actually any...

[interface]: Separate observers from recording games

At this point, any multi-player matches with observers are automatically recorded on the server. I think this may not be obvious to those who don't read the wiki. Some people may be surprised by this and have privacy concerns. Furthermore, there are legitimate use cases to warrant decoupling these t...

Re: GSoC project idea: measure how well units are balanced

In a sense, I see the first approach (data from human matches) as a sort of "top-down" analysis, while the second one (a more straightforward and systematic automated comparison) as "bottom-up". I would welcome more data of all types to be available to be analysed, sure. :D If I had to choose I wou...

Re: GSoC project idea: measure how well units are balanced

Indeed, there is no way to produce any meaningful information on balance by analyzing unit stats and/or AI matches. What might be useful would perhaps be something like analyzing all matches (excluding special scenarios etc etc) played on the MP server and checking if there's any units which are pr...

Hi all, I have posted this message before on the developers' list a few days ago, but maybe some people only look at this forum, so I post an edited version here: During the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) reunion I had a project idea. It was based on the fact that it is difficult to fine-tune the stre...
