Re: Would you date an Orc?

If we sort magical races on the "masculinity - femininity" scale, the results seem to be: (most masculine) orcs - dwarves - humans - elves - fairies (most feminine) I would expect that most interracial couples would follow this direction, i.e. that combinations "male orc, female human" or "male huma...

Teaching a 3 years old child to draw/paint better

Hi everyone! It's been 7 years since I last wrote here. :shock: Many things have changed in my life; most importantly, now I have 2 daughters. The older one is three years old, and she is quite talented at drawing. Not just my parental bias; a child psychologist confirmed that she draws at a level o...

Wesnoth statistics

I was curious about Wesnoth usage; here are a few data I found: In recent days, Wesnoth on SourceForge has cca 1700 downloads daily . (This number can mean many different things: new players, players upgrading from previous versions, etc.) Downloads by country : 21% USA, 13% Brazil, 8% Germany, 6% F...

Re: Issues of Gender

I would file a feature request, if I knew what feature I was actually asking for. ;) You want to have abilities (technically: adjectives) in both masculine and feminine form. That's not a problem. The problem is, how would the game know which form to use? Does in depend on gender of the unit? For e...

Re: A train going with the speed of light

Can they breathe...? And blood, does it circulate in their bodies...? But seriously, what would happen to the lighting in such a circumstance? Would the light remain normal, since the train is traveling at the same speed as the light? :hmm: If the train (after achieving the speed) is moving in unif...

Re: A train going with the speed of light

What do you think happens with those people inside? Nothing. The time stops for them. what do they see? They see whatever happens after the end of this universe. Or something that happens before the end of universe that causes their train to slow down. Or just emptiness... because they fly away fro...

Re: Something very strange going on.

I imagine they may have been using an uppercase i instead of a lowercase L. Maybe it would be useful to use a font which clearly differentiates these (and other) characters, at least for user names? :idea: To prevent confusion of "visually similar" names, maybe the game should display a graphical i...

Perhaps could you post a real log from your game, so we can speak about those numbers -- whether they are random or not.

Re: Wiki Spam

But keep the following in mind: If someone wants to spam anywhere , he will write bots who will solve reCaptchas and send them to all MediaWikis which use that method he can find. In that case, we're safe. But if someone wants to spam on Wesnoth's Wiki , he won't be stoppable at all. Each and every...

Re: Python or Perl?

That was interesting and fairly accurate as far as my knowledge goes (I have minor experience with Java and C++). Would you care to make a corresponding comment on the languages strengths? I am a natural born pessimist, which is probably not very good... unless you work in computer security or test...

Perl is sexier: There’s more than one way to do it!

A flyer (available for download at Wesnoth home page, in different formats) would be great. You can also make a micro-flyer containing a name, description and URL. You can subscribe to the Facebook page, or add the YouTube trailer to your favourite videos. You can link these from your web page. (Som...

Re: Want to become a developer. Where to start?

Do NOT pick up a C++ programming book, it is very complicated and pretty much unsuitable for beginners. There is a huge but frequently ignored difference between "learning to program" and "learning a programming language". In my experience, most books are good to learn a programming language if you...

Re: Want to become a developer. Where to start?

I'll try to address your questions closely. Hi, I always wanted to create my own game, but I really don't know anything about computer. If you literally do not know "anything about computer", then maybe before making games you should try some simpler tasks which may be later useful. For example: Lea...
