Re: Mirror Era v0.1.0: Chaotic Drakes and Lawful Undead

MCP:Ideally the Wesnoth engine would be adapted to allow on-the-fly recoloring similar to how the team-coloring is currently applied, so that Mirror Era would shrink to a much smaller size. ImagePathFunctionWML . It's well possible, I used it to recolor oozes in the Mini Ooze Campaign(http://www.we...

Re: Green Mage

This "1000 movement" thing sounds quite unprofessional, it will also slow down the engine when calculating the possible moves. A good alternative would be to implement a teleport ability, using right-click options, which could be used to teleport the Green Mage to any forest tile on the ma...

Re: Hrm..learnign the ropes, help me out a bit

The first one looks alright, as to the second one: Use the moveto event and filter for the locations that are in view of the particular units. If you don't want the event to trigger before turn 3, you can also use nested events.

Re: What would you look for in an MP campaign?

Personally, I always wanted to have some co-op, story-based MP campaign and I mostly agree with jb. I think it might make sense to develop a system(and if it's just a subforum) to organize and coordinate the playing of longer campaigns, since it is hard to find players you can have fun with per-se, ...

Re: Multiplayer Campaigns HOWTO

Using the save_id, canrecruit=1 unit gets carried over with only its [modifications] and its base unit state. If you alter anything directly, it doesn't show in the next scenario. Why refer back to the base unit cfg when you could just renew the unit by maxing hp/mp/attacks_left/status/etc and then...

Re: Multiplayer Shop Menu: Is he idle or just shopping?

Don't say it's determined only by move I said it was only determined by the player's non-WML actions, but I forgot that there was indeed an action you could set via WML and which would synchronize - The right-click menu. It's still quite limited though, only updating everytime you do a right-click ...

Re: Multiplayer Shop Menu: Is he idle or just shopping?

Well, I guess you do not really understand how Wesnoth synchronizes. I do not fully understand it so far, either, but it seems to work roughly like this: - the player makes a move - the movement is written to the replay data - events are fired, WML is called, all player input is written to the repla...

Re: Siege Wars - New Construction Era!

Monuments seem to be bugged, when destroying them your unrest doesn't increase. I think Monuments should decrease unrest/turn, building hundreds of them because your enemy is propaganding all the time is just weird.

Re: Can't find error

My guess would be that you forgot the empty line between the map header and map data.

Code: Select all

 map_data="border_size
   usage=map

You could for example create a new set of units that uses the old units as base, but that adds unbalanced features, that values the ability to level up higher, etc.. But it's going off-topic now.

You just explained why you don't need balanced units for campaigns, thus you didn't answer my question, you only said why I asked it.. In campaigns you just want units that are fun playing, you don't want balance, it doesn't make any sense to use the perfectly balanced MP units in campaigns.

Why do campaigns use MP units then, in the first place?
