Re: The kind of RPG I would like to see

I think the best way to do this would be a mmorpg, one where quests are made by human player. With a good reward system for making good quests, it'll be as much of the game as doing quests yourself. Even if only 1 in 10 players made quests, you'd still have an army of quest makers if the game was po...

Re: Increasing or removing turn limit in scm

-1 turns is infinite turns, but you don't get and early finish bonus. But it ok, you'll generally have enough money to complete the levels and because your not swimming in money the levels are more fun and interesting. Best thing is if you don't have enough gold to can farm a level for it (take a bi...

Re: What are the character weaknesses?

If you want a comprehensive list of unit strengths & weaknesses they are explained very well in the how to play series of threads (and in even more detail on the wiki). It details every unit, their strengths and weaknesses & also tells you how they fair against other units sorted into factions. How ...

Re: Movement/Attacking

I actually love randomness and I don't understand why people always try to make deterministic systems. I actually really enjoy the risk management factor, if you go for an all out attack you stand a chance of getting screwed. You have to hold back in Wesnoth and have reserves (there are not many gam...

Re: Some ideas

TBH I'd be happy with just the group select and move.

I think that it would be the easiest to implement too.

But there is no point trying to hurry it up if you can't do the programming yourself ^^'.

Most players will decide the scenario is over long before their last unit dies.
Of course but I think he wants to get to that point.

Re: 1st turn, all player freedom to pick item/shoping. 2nd turn,

For 1st turn customisation of characters/shopping there is no reason this can't be done on the choose faction screen (not in game but in the lobby). Don't know if it is possible now, I haven't seen it (I'm almost certain it isn't). Some way for scenario creators to add some more/edit existing option...

Re: What's the deal with the time limit?

but it is just the effort it takes to code these events that the campaign authors do not usually put them in their scenarios. sry in the above post I ment to say with more documentation on spawning random enemies a scenario creator could make the scenarios more entertaining with not too much effort...

Re: Some ideas

How many people play games of such size that these orders would have a real effect? Just exactly how large is the map you tend to play on? It would be interesting to see if people play maps large enough for these to have effect, it would also be interesting to see if these orders would make it so p...

Re: Make Some leader random-only

Not completely related (kinda the opposite infact) but what about an option to pick a leader upon picking a random faction? Doesn't really bother me, I like the luck of the draw, but I imagine it bothers some to get a unfavorable leader when picking random. Actually disregarding default for a second...

Re: Movement/Attacking

Wesnoth is also very scaleable in players minds. Although I know the game focuses on individuals, Single men, each with an individual name, I can't help thinking of them as more than one man, or 100s of men per character icon. I think lots of players see it this way too, even though cleary everythin...

Re: Official server game list

Well... yeh Cernunnos the lobby could be left the same.

(short pointless posts feel like I'm filling the thread with, *must not post again here today*).

*Edit* Wonder if the the unknown eras & scenarios in the lobby will be shown in 1.6x.

Re: Arch Mage / Great Mage Melee-Attack

Hmm maybe a new attack animation is the best way to accomplish this?
But I wouldn't even know where to start for ideas...

Pull a rabbit out of a hat? (no jk, but what else? without making it seem like the attack needs to be made, 70% CTH, do fire damage or do arcane damage).

Yeh they'd be good ideas, to help people find games they want.

But what should the order of "general browsing be?"
