Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

I will be extremely disappointed if WoV is not reinstated *with* the deleted text about the breeder capture. The reveal that this is how their society works because their biology is what it is, is important. It's structure like that which gives an imaginary world depth, rather than being merely a s...

Re: [Item handling and Crafting]

Is this about a Wesnoth campaign? It's overly non-specific and this forum section is not for Wesnoth content in the first place.

Re: Sketching out an improved GUI2 API

set_dialog_active: I'm not sure what you mean here iirc this one just sets whtger a widget is 'greyed out' or not and the name (active) seems quite fitting to me. The original developer of GUI2 made some questionable naming decisions and this is one I have to agree with celmin on. Anyone who hasn't...

There's a good description here: https://www.wesnoth.org/
It’s so good that near the end of my website redesign commission, Vultraz and I spent a few days debating exactly how to embellish it so it sounded marginally less like a disjointed enumeration of random events à la Alice in Wonderland.

Re: How do you load a replay?

You can either press the big i button on the bottom left corner of the main menu to see a list of Wesnoth’s folders and browse to them, or just directly use the browse button on the bottom left corner of the Load Game dialog.

Re: purpose of [move_unit_fake]

The issue with [move_units_fake] is simply that the animation engine (at the time at least, but to my knowledge this hasn’t changed in the last 10 years) didn’t have the ability to animate more than two adjacent units at a time, other than idle and standing animations which have the implicit guarant...

Re: purpose of [move_unit_fake]

[move_unit_fake] exists since time immemorial for the purpose of implementing cutscenes, when the proper [move_unit] didn’t exist and there wasn’t any other way to move a unit on the map without the player (or an AI) performing the action. There isn’t much else to say about it.

Re: portraits of female trolls

Yes, it is a good thing to change bad things, established or not ;-). However, I would find it very very alien that trolls do not reproduce sexually. There exist some animals that reproduce otherwise, but very few, and for some it is in addition to sex. Anyway this is not part of our common knowled...

Re: News feature

Adding features from add-ons to the core game means placing technical restrictions (mostly based around the release schedule, maintenance branches, and distribution thereof) on when and how those features are updated. It’s more advantageous for the community to develop add-ons entirely independently...
