Re: Grand Portrait List - 2020 update

Hamel is a respected, middle-aged king of dwarves with reddish hair and beard. His design should be based on the Dwarvish Lord's sprite. Hamel already has a portrait in The Hammer of Thursagan. That one has him sitting on a throne, but it could be used as a basis. Elenia is a young and pretty elf w...

Re: How is the in-game editor used?

For example, many games that have editors use scripting tools that allow users to make scripts from pre made elements that are easy to learn and require little to no knowledge of coding. An editor that works like that is inevitably used by much more people than one that needs manual scripting. I'm ...

Re: How is the in-game editor used?

Then, for features that aren't being used, the first question should be "is this worth keeping in the first place?", and if it is, figuring out how to make it better is the next step. It doesn't make sense to spend time working on a feature that isn't going to be used regardless. No, beca...

Re: How is the in-game editor used?

If of course you don't want to make it more user friendly, but just improve features for experienced users: ignore my post. Right now I'm primarily focused on the even simpler question of just " do people even use it?". Which at least as of right now is leaning very heavily towards "...

Re: Knalgan Outlaws' Masks versus Dwarven Taboo

Stupid question but aren't the outlaws in the knalgan faction just stand-ins for northern humans? Besides, historically alliances were less about two groups liking each other and more about two groups recognizing the tactical advantage or letting somebody else risk their life fighting your enemy. Ta...

Re: Mainline and UMC lore

- The War of the Jewel tells a story from the old continent where the ruby of fire plays a significant role. It's set long before the mainline wesnoth campaigns. I don't think these two campaigns collide with each other (however, WotJ is part of a bigger trilogy, the Dragon Trilogy, and other campa...

Re: What does these words (tree-shagger, wose-spawned, wose-born) mean?

So an orcish leader might say, "Mog, those woods are filled with bow-using leaf-lovers! I saw a cowardly, ambushing ranger lurking near the pine trees. Summon the goblin horde, Mog! The forest freaks are doomed!" And so forth. Actually, orcs don't need clever insults, as the word "el...

Re: LordBob's random stuff : Nagas and more

I don't think the scars fit them at all. Fencers are supposed to be nobility, and the whole battle-hardened badass theme just doesn't fit them at all. Also, while getting injured during duels is inevitable, historically, duels have been faught till someone draws blood. Facial scars aren't something ...

Re: Wesnoth 1.14 on Android

So I reinstalled the app just to see if the problem is on my end. And the issue seems to persist. I have recently encountered a graphics glitch that messes up the team colors of units on the minimap. I posted a thread on it in technical issues and linked to the thread on the previous page. My tablet...

Re: BT attempts portraiting

These are mostly finished versions of portraits I made for a personal project, however, people may use them if they feel like it. I am not pleased with the expressions on the Fisherman portrait, especially since he's intended to be a lvl 0 protagonist. He's got that weird simpleton expression and th...

Re: Wesnoth 1.14 on Android

Quick question. Did anyone playing the current android version encounter this odd graphics glitch?

Re: Minimap graphics glitch.

I haven't seen that happen in the PC version of wesnoth, so I'd guess it's an issue with the Android version. I recall there being a mention of a rendering issue that caused unit icons on the minimap to be drawn over the help menu. Is it possible that this is the same problem but it manifests diffe...

Re: Who did the artwork for the old wesnoth characters?

Konrad and Li'sar sound younger than their twenties but look older than their twenties. A relatively easy solution might be to swap their sprites/portraits for younger looking character art from another mainline campaign that would work fine with these older looking character portraits. A much less...

Minimap graphics glitch.

I haven't played wesnoth for a while, besides checking of everything is running after two recent updates, so i have no idea when this started. I just noticed it right now. Unit icons on the minimap seem to be glitching out, and look like barcodes. I'm using wesnoth version 1.14.12 of the android por...

You know, I've been having this nagging feeling that Kitty may have shot past the mark a bit when trying to make them look older.
