Re: To Lands Unknown 3.1.2 - a new gameplay mode!

You can also tweak the aggression of the computer controller. From your description of the behavior, such is probably all that needs done.

Re: Eastern Europe at War (EEaW) - 2.1 for 1.14!

Oh! I understood that the AI was unable to comprehend the cannons and that it always rushed, making games against it too easy. Why does Wesnoth have more mod makers than mod players? Most of the players stick with a few, familiar eras and maps; many of them play campaigns only. Why is that? Well, I ...

Re: The Black Cross of Aleron (formerly Besieged Druids)

I... don't have an answer for that really? Does something about it strike you as odd? It does strike me as odd that the elves (who in the next scenario agree that 'the undead are a travesty to be destroyed without question'), would just leave the cave while those very undead are still alive. Especi...

comparing map data textually

(If someone else already has one of these, then please PM me with the link — do not post here, please — and then i'll delete this thread.) So, maybe this is too simple. Maybe that's why there isn't one already posted here or included in the data/tools/ anywhere: because most developers of so–called ...

Re: Humor Campaign: Talentless Mage (1.12)

A few things here. None of these prepare it for 1.14 yet. I suggest that the Taxman and the Beautiful Fish recruit different troops. That will encourage the Taxman to buy more land troops. Interlude 1 shouldn't save a replay because it is only a cutscene. Sword Noob shouldn't be offered the AMLA for...

Re: Eastern Europe at War (EEaW) - 2.1 for 1.14!

Of course, most Marines were tougher, if you will, than the average sailor. That's the sort of person attracted to that sort of thing. For me, being “tough” was standing watch over equipment with too little sleep while memorizing casualty procedures and all that. Ah, but yes. Back on topic. I'm not ...

Re: chicken or the Orc?

Well, I remember something where Uwe Boll was like, So, you want to criticize my moviemaking? Well, I'll bet you can't beat me … at boxing! and he then proceeded to challange some of those to a boxing match. That is not an exact quote, but I think it jabs to the heart of the matter better than Uwe's...

Re: Eastern Europe at War (EEaW) - Marines and Sailors

Pardon the unearthing of an old post for one that is probably not topical. Sadly, I can't find image that we used when we were creating Colonial Marines. But by the term ''marine'' we meant a navy sailor/soldier on board/ Kolonial Korps soldat. It's a play of words, really - we didn't mean ''marine'...

Re: Need Some Creative Minds

How different are these bloodlines (Pantheons?) supposed to be? Just minor bonuses/penalties to some stats (like e.g. the different civs in the Civilization games) or actual different unit that all use the same underlying mechanics (like different classes in RPGs)? You could go even crazier and hav...

Re: The Black Cross of Aleron (formerly Besieged Druids)

Where does the trapdoor lead to? Looks like a loose end. It leads to that lone tree near the elvish keep. This is revealed if you step on said tree, giving you an opportunity to open the trapdoor. When I design interactive environments and puzzles, I always try to help the user distinguish between ...

Re: The Black Cross of Aleron (formerly Besieged Druids)

That could be a style thing. I would say that it should be consistent with other such messages: “Cured”, “Slowed”. I would also say that the exclamation should probably be kept because it is such a drastic ability; same as with charming an enemy to fight with you. Bear in mind that I last played thr...

Re: The Black Cross of Aleron (formerly Besieged Druids)

Surely, I am not the only one who would like the vernacular to include the words ‘nor’ and ‘xor’, et al. , used exactly as the logicians do. Honk iff you love formal logic. Anyway, your use of “nor” does seem to correspond with how I'd expect. Much like you would see “Neither rain, nor sleet, nor da...

Re: Witch Campaign: Mountain Witch

No need to be ashamed of inconsistency. :) Works of art will never be perfect. We simply make an effort, and sometimes make mistakes. There is no shame in that; the only shame is when we fail the endeavor to always improve our art, and when we fail to be adventurous for its sake. Also, sometimes wha...

What books/movies/television encourage you to play Wesnoth?

Whenever I rewatch Babylon 5, I find myself wanting to play FreeOrion. I was wondering if anybody would be willing to share and discuss the things that encourage them to play some of the various Wesnoth and related campaigns or skirmishes. Books, movies, television — that sort of thing. I don't mean...

Re: Would you date an Orc?

I'll resist the urge to link DM Of The Rings in regard to your masculinity–femininity line. :) As for Garona, she wasn't full Orc though, was she? I never cared much for the Draenei females, but one could see how an orc–draenei hybrid would be nearer to modern, statistically normal standards of beau...
