Re: Wings of Victory 0.9.5-RC2 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

EDIT: also, is this thread really the best place for a discussion about orcs and censorship? No, it isn't. Would it be possible and desirable at this point to move the posts regarding orcs out of the WoV topic? I never would have referenced them if I had known it would cause such a derailment. And ...

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Design Flaws & Match-Ups

The Dunefolk were not mainlined that long ago. They were first added in 1.9.6 , which was released just under 8 years ago . They were then removed in 1.9.10 . Then they were re-added in 1.11.8 , which was released a little over 5 years ago . Therefore they also would not have been in a stable relea...

Re: Wings of Victory 0.9.5-RC2 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

I'm leaning toward adding the Saurians as standard but with different dialog based on the easter egg condition. I did change it so players get some fighters in S01, but that is a good point, so I might revert it back to only burners & gliders for S01 Cool, I look forward to testing with these chang...

Re: Wings of Victory 0.9.5-RC2 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

Changes to Wesnoth are not required to be discussed on the forums, plain and simple. Moreover, what is ultimately made part of mainline Wesnoth is decided by the people who contribute to it. The people who wrote these mainline campaigns did contribute to mainline wesnoth. So did all of the people w...

Re: Wings of Victory 0.9.5-RC2 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

Those "references" should most certainly not be removed. Not only because your working to outright censor the artistic expressions of those mainline campaign authors, for failing to live up to a puritanical moral code, would be wrong in real life... That is a flatly absurd statement, in multiple wa...

Re: Wings of Victory 0.9.5-RC2 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

However, there are plenty of non -sentient creatures around that they could kill and eat instead of humans, who are capable of speech and reasoning and, furthermore, are more capable of fighting back than most of the non-sentient prey. No, there are most definitely not plenty of any creatures to ea...

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Design Flaws & Match-Ups

Short said: first was the sprites and then the balance. Which is not good. Agreed. Its not, it will remain mainline. Neither is this gone as cataphract will be introduced back. The current herbalist is still "supreme", but in a different way. This too will be introduced back (not on lv1 though) If ...

Re: Wings of Victory 0.9.5-RC2 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

It would be good to have the Saurian's appearance as standard as they don't get much attention in mainline. That is a really good point, if I recall correctly, the player never gets to control saurian units in any existing mainline campaign. Add that to the fact there are only four drake units to r...

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Design Flaws & Match-Ups

The proposal I am about to make mostly relates to what is posted above, but also the added/removed units thread and the changed units thread. So I will post it here where it is definitely most relevant, just keep in mind it comes from a broader look at the state of your dunefolk proposal. Also, I wa...

Re: Saurian genders

That is another really good idea. Similar looking gender species would be an interesting addition. Not similar looking. The same looking. Quite a lot of real world species do not express dimorphism greater than what is already depicted by the Saurian sprites and portraits . The same goes for the Na...

Re: Wings of Victory 0.9.1 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

It was informative to see 09-12 played without flares or flamehearts. Yeah, I tend to avoid the leadership ability in general, mostly because it has no effect on units of the same level as the leader. It is a personal defect. :doh: It was my intention that Galun is moving to settle throughout the c...

Re: Wings of Victory 0.9.1 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

They seem to be missing from the .zip Apologies. :oops: replays_0.9.0.zip I don't really see Galun as isolationist, but he's certainly not as expansionist as the rest of the drakes. That means it could probably be characterized better in the campaign. I guess what gives me that impression is Reshan...

Re: Wings of Victory 0.9.1 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

05 Islands Significantly lowered difficulty More specific reference in dialog I think this is the right call since even gliders are much less efficient on the water than haldric's mermish were in the same situation. In previous versions of this scenario, I generally wound up, after swiftly killing ...

Re: Wings of Victory 0.9.0 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

I would expect that sapient carnivores would be able to recognize that skeletons aren't edible even before killing them and trying to eat them. Well even inanimate skeletons contain nutritious marrow prized by many carnivores. Plus the movement, speech and aggressive acts of undead creatures defini...
