Re: Free Panzer General on Wesnoth?

Second the Close Combat series as probably one of the most realistic. The real time with units actually "acting on their own" based on your orders was superb IMHO. The Steel Panthers series gives plenty of time to think about actions...you loose part of the feeling of chaos and also looking at your ...

Re: Loyalist Crossbowman Possibility

For the defense animation - if you try how you'd be blocking an attack with a shield you'll probably come with first moving and than raising the shield. Also you would probably duck behing the shield at least a little to brace for the impact and to get your arm a bit closer to your body. I haven't f...

Re: PK's Zombie Ideas (Help Improve The Zombie Apocalypse!)

How about using superglue for fixing bodyparts? wikipedia about superglue Superglue was in veterinarian use for mending bone, hide, and tortoise shell by at least the early 1970s. The inventor of cyanoacrylates, Harry Coover, said in 1966 that a superglue spray was used in the Vietnam War to [censor...

Re: Kitty's Merfolk: Fighter

The hoplite looks very nice, but what he is wielding is a pilum . Pilum is a throwing weapon meant for piercing armor with the prolonged tip, which should farther stick in the armor or shield, to render it useless. It is also meant to bend or break, so the enemy can't throw it back. It is almost no ...

I love the looks of him, but the golden chain would be a terrible think to carry in a combat situation.

Re: Wesnoth calendar

How about turning a gaseous planet into a dwarf star?
If it is near the critical mass, with just a bit of magic you could send it over the brink :)

Re: Valkiers portraits

I know the glowy eyes were dropped but inspired by Terry Pratchetts 'Hogfather' I guess a simple spark in the eyeholes gives an 'inteligent' look to the skeleton (which he isn't, so no use for it anyway :-) ).

Re: What are you reading right now?

Utopia by sir Thomas Moore ... loved this one. It was better still, because I had borrowed one that was printed something like 1965. The nice touch of this edition was the socialist forword, about how Moore was showing a perfect society even back than and how every right thinking human should see hi...

Re: Valkiers portraits

I think that if you plan to use the 'spark' in eyes, you should probably put them in the skull, now it looks to me as if they are actually in front of the face.

Re: What are you reading right now?

...then I will hopefully get to read a book called 'D-Day', which is a collection of interviews of various soldiers and their retellings. I've read something called 'The longest day' that was pretty much the same. An interesting book with some funny and many not so funny stories from the first day ...

Re: The Internal Workings of Wose.

Magic is a perfectly functioning system, untill you get further ;) Magic DOES WORK. Hell, it rains, right? If I have no idea about atmosphere, about physics, about meteorology, than magic really is a viable explanation of rain. When somebody shows me a device which for what I know now shouldn't be w...

Re: What are you reading right now?

I've read The day of the Triffids by John Wyndham (I've also read "Web" and "Out of the deeps" by the same author) lately. So I decided to write a bit about those three books by him I've read. 'The day of the Triffids' (1951) is about a global catastrophy - due to unknown issues actually at the end ...

Re: When to Heal (mainline)

I guess it could be used for UMC as a special or even trait for a healing unit - it could simply give other strategy options. If author of this topic codes it it probably will find it's way into a UMC - perhaps as a hero special.

Re: The Internal Workings of Wose.

For the thinking part I would go for a plant-wide spreaded neural system (ok, perhaps not neurons in the animal sort of view...perhaps some magic driven fibres which work like neurons). Speech - if it comes down to that, plants have a nice set of hydrostatic possibilities for movement, so it's just ...
