A few questions

Hello! I have no idea if this is the right forum, so it might have to be moved. A hobby of mine is to make up games i.e. imagine the mechanics and lists of a game. I don't know if this is the right forum because none of these games will ever be made (I don't have the programming, far from it). Anywa...

Someone ressucitated this thread! As far as the "fiery" orc archer, people seem to like this idea and it seems in character. Good! They shouldn't do more damage with fire than with pierce, maybe even a tiny bit less. The idea is that they usually just fire arrows, but when faced with say skeletons o...

Too slow!

This isn't a bug or a problem per se, but it's quite unpleasent: Wesnoth runs very slowly on my computer. More precisely, the AI's turn is very slow. A scenario can take a very long time: for example I a re-doing Heir to the throne at medium difficulty, and it took me an hour to finish bay of pearls...

Just thought I would give you my two cents (I realize no one asked): I like the idea of a bard, since armies have used musicians to keep units disciplined (I don't think they still do though I'll have better information soon), but it is true that they weren't as good as captains, so here's my propos...

Thanks for all the replies. As a reply to the .... I'm getting repetitive! 1. Everyone likes this idea! Trias wrote: "1. I think there should be the choice to either level using the crossbow tree or a flaming bow side because you cant really light crossbow bolts and its not only not realistic but al...

A few ideas

I do happen to get lots of ideas pertaining to gameplay, and since I have an unexpected vacation... 1. Why are there no units with flaming arrows(ranged non-magical fire-based attack) in the game? I understand flaming arrows weren't used half as often in real life as in the movies, but they were fre...

Thanks for all the replies. About n.2, it was only something I felt was odd... As a side note, chaotic units see better in the dark??? I always thought they got their bonus because they set traps or something. About n.3, I understand pierce damage means impaling someone, not just thrusting; my point...

Three little ideas

Hello. I just thought of three little things that would make good additions: 1. some units gaining xp without actually fighting. I know it's been discussed, but I really think it could be a good idea. Some units in an army (or warband) aren't primarily there to fight. I'm thinking of generals, docto...
