Re: Players are not interested in competitive?

I got so soured on multi-player in other game that I've pretty much avoided it everywhere for the past ten or fifteen years. That's why I like games like Wesnoth and Freeciv. I can play at my own pace and don't have to deal with any other players.

Re: Scenario end with victory turn 1

I'd use a hidden opponent and if there are units I don't want moving, I set their movement to zero. There might be an AI for that, I've not looked. Or you could use an object which you could remove later if you need to.

Designing the decision tree is probably a lot harder than coding it.

Re: Organized via web interface

Moving to web site. There is some discussion going on there about notable characters. So they're taking a look at all them. If they're adding portaits to the pages, then all you'd need is a Wiki page for notable characters who lack a portait.

Re: Became better

I often have wounded units which I have no intention of ever recalling or promoting. I try to use these to slow down or divert enemy units. Sometimes they surprise me and survive, even advance. But, usually, they give me the one-more-turn I need to get an important unit into position.

Re: Notability guidelines

To my mind, much of the Wiki is (or should be) directed at three audiences: UMC story authors and map makers. This is where dramatis personae and the notable character pages, along with campaign and scenario overviews, art galaries, geographies and histories, would be of use. UMC WML and Lua authors...

Re: Notability guidelines

I would have a "dramatis personae" page where we list all the named characters, either with links the their own page, or with a link the the campaign/scenario where they appear. Even though a given leader might be a kill-the-leader objective, that does not mean someone else could not make a prequel ...

Huh?

It feels like you're dropping us into the middle of a discussion.

What do you mean by "notability"?
What is the problem you're trying to solve?

Re: Nintendo Switch Port

This will require someone with the ability to do the port, and the software (and hardware?) necessary. Paying a third party is almost certainly a non-starter. While the Wesnoth project does, at time, commission art work, this is far less of an expense than the what most companies charge for porting ...

Re: Career Choices after Undergraduate Studies in Electrical Engineering
