Re: New to game -- which mods are essentials?

I don't have a particular listing of mods that are necessary, but from having played lots of different campaigns there are some things I love. - Hero advancement is awesome. I liked the campaign with the dwarf that would ride on a bear mount. That was hilarious. And certain abilities are awesome ......

Re: [difficulty] : add params for image + var

> I know! I tend to even use "index" instead of "i" in loops, because it's much clearer. I think the name "index" is better than "i". In ruby I tend to prefer long names, but I also tend to use a style such as this: def foobar(i) Simply because I know that "i" stands for "input" and I just want to w...

Re: more difficulty levels and max gold limit

I think having more difficulty levels and more variety in it, is a good thing. Especially for older players who wish more challenges. Some game maps don't scale easily, due to horrible design and constraints. This is typically on smaller maps; larger maps tend to have more freedom and opportunity. A...

Re: Gonna post an unpopular opinion...

This one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCABRWcwlM4 (2011 video :P )

Not sure if the map has changed but the video-map is indeed a bit stacked closely.

It may help if you could give some more specific complaints about what isn't great.

Re: Players are not interested in competitive?

> Players are not interested in competitive gaming? For me, I am a bit too old to play games competitively. I am more of a child of the 1990s era, "oldschool" games. I sort of lost interest when games became clones after clones after clones of 3D engines... I still follow game-related news here and ...

Re: Which faction do you think is the most difficult to play?

I myself love elves; ranger is my favourite one, the healer types are quite nice, fighters are ok, and archers are quite great. Granted, they tend to be fragile, but by and large I love them. Trolls are always a lot of fun; I love regeneration, lots of strength and hp. Could see more diversity perha...

Orc units - graphics

First ... the forum is a bit confusing. For example I can not write in the art contribution sector, so I am posting here. But in the long run, perhaps the whole forum could be a bit cleaned up; some subthreads seem dead/inactive. But this is an aside - to the main topic. Wesnoth has some high qualit...

Re: Top Best UMC campaigns

I can not remember the abbreviations or names for campaigns. I think my favourite ones are still the two arabian nights - first the one with the flying carpet unit; but the other one where you have hero units is pretty cool too ... there are also djinni in that one. There is also some epic-long one ...

Re: Wesnoth on Liberapay

I think doofus-01 missed part of the point - it is not about an "obligation" to be transparent. Neither that transparency only has to exist because of bad actors. I think transparency in and itself is a great reason to have, even if everyone is a good actor. Others show how this can be done, e. g. t...

Re: Easy Strategy that always wins: using the Elvish Sylph

I like them a lot, mostly due to mobility, but of course also due to power.

Only problem is amassing the XP which, in campaigns, can take a little while.

I realized that I can not play with units that are slow, such as these shock troopers, so I cater to quick units in general.

Names of enemy units

Right now we see the names of enemy units. I am wondering though - has anyone of you partaking in any wars (yes yes ...) known the name of the enemies? "Hey Joe, do you see Tom over there, the guy from Vietnam, and Jimmy, from Australia? Our enemies? I'm gonna whack them down... and then I proceed w...

Art Contributions: organizing them through a web-interface

There are campaigns that have artwork, including character portraits. And then there are campaigns that have some portraits but not all of them do. Read: some portraits are missing. This is a bit annoying when you play a campaign, have nice artwork and then suddenly some character speaks that has no...

Re: Does anyone else think 1.12 looked better than 1.14?

Dude - you gots way too much time on your hand. :P

I did not even notice. Even now looking at it I realize that I do not even care to look at such details.

I am mostly interested in gameplay related aspects per se.

Re: Would it be OK to publish an era that uses sprites for units from a 1995 SNES game?

> Old SNES games have in been in de facto public domain for two decades at least. I guess it depends on what jurisdiction you can rely on. Here locally I am not even sure how much "public domain" applies, e. g. in Germany. Normally when any copyright is slapped onto something, it stays there for 70 ...
