Re: Own use portraits

I am aware of all the copyright stuff. I was not implying that anyone should take someone else's art and use it in UMC that they then upload to the add-on server. What I meant is replacing the portraits (whether it be the core units, mainline campaigns or UMC) in your own copy of the game for your u...

Own use portraits

Greetings While the default portraits are good, something that I do is to take art from around the web, from sites such as deviant art and pininterest, and modify them to the Wesnoth format (one profile image, 200x200 with black BG, one dialog image, 400x400 with transparent BG), and replace the cur...

Re: My view on RNG

I know that no matter how many numbers are used, it can be reduced to a single value. It does change the chance when more numbers are used, however. Normally a 99% chance would miss 1 out of 100, but by using two numbers, 99% misses only 1 in 10,000 or something. It makes the shown numbers behave cl...

Re: My view on RNG

I have another question relating to RNG: are there any mods that allow you to choose the gender and traits of unit when recruiting, instead of it being random? I'm guessing (whether or not it currently exists) that it would involve catching the recruitment event, deleting the recruited unit, then cr...

Re: My view on RNG

Yes I've played Legend of the Invincibles, it's definitely the best UMC. I could only beat the first half though. In the second half you loose all the units you spent ages developing, and the difficulty spikes.

Are there any plans on making another campaign?

Re: My view on RNG

I understand that Wesnoth is about managing luck and adapting when it turns against you, it's why units often have three or more attacks, as opposed to other games where they only get one or two. What I don't like is how this bad lack can result in lost characters. In a game like starcraft, I don't ...

My view on RNG

I'm under the impression that the RNG is a somewhat controversial topic around here. I thought I would express my point of view on the matter. I have a love/hate relationship with this game. Somehow, the music and themes and all of the other stuff create an amazing sense of immersion. I really like ...

Re: Your favourite campaigns

I like the new interface, very sleek. I still cannot find [Aria of the dragon slayer]. I also notice that a number of other UMC campaigns are missing. Are they incompatible with this version, or can I just copy and paste them from the old versions user data file? Is there a way to fiddle with a file...

Re: Your favourite campaigns

That's weird. I only recently (re)downloaded the game (new computer). The download page had 1.10 as stable and 1.11 as currently working on, but unstable, version, so I downloaded the 1.10. Now all of a sudden, 1.12 is stable. Is there a way to update the game without having to download all of 1.12?...

Re: Your favourite campaigns

I would like to play [Secrets of the ancients], [A song of fire] and [ Aria of the dragon slayer], but I cannot locate them. I looked on the add-on server by typing "Secrets", "Ancients", Song, "Fire", Dragon slayer". None of these search terms returned the campaig...

Re: Your favourite campaigns

I'm not sure if after the storm and fate of a princess have female protagonists, although, I haven't yet played them. It says in that umc campaign list that after the storm is "Follow the journey of Galas and his band following the events of Invasion from the Unknown", which implies that t...

Your favourite campaigns

Greetings I was wondering what peoples favourite campaigns were. There is a lot of content on the add-in server, and I do not know what ones are complete, what races you play in them and who the main characters are. Is there a place where that information can be found? Also, what campaigns, and what...

Re: Sprite questions

It's decent, though a little difficult to distinguish what's going on. There is a lot of detail which can be difficult to discern given the size of the image. There needs to be better contrast between the skin and the leaves/vines. Adding darker parts to the foliage would make them 'pop' a bit more....

Re: Spearman Female

I personally like it and would use it if the full set was made.
