Re: Wesnoth Forum Era

This post is coming very late, I know, but it is only bearing sad tidings (or maybe relief for some of you). It is time for me to say farewell to Wesnoth. My (real) life is beginning to take over my life, as it should, and consequently I simply do not have the time for Wesnoth anymore. I will probab...

Re: Use of Cavalrymen and Their Advancements

In 1.9.x I believe the Cavalryman got a nerf in hitpoints. So it is less tanky, but it certainly still has the capability to do so in certain situations. One could say pierce is common. But that is only because the game features archers, instead of say, slingers (except for the Footpad line, of cour...

Re: Best two units

I still stand behind my Footpad/Ulf combo. Delightfully fast and annoying for the opponent. And it is hard-hitting. Footpads harass and trap enemy units, ulfs finish, footpads cover + defend. Lather, rinse, repeat until victory. Even with the weakened Footpad this can still be devastating when used ...

Thanks for the info. I'm actually looking forward to that one. No, IIRWIIR . And seeing the speed of the develop...

Re: Healer economy in SP (preferring l2 or l3 healers)

In HttT, I usually get the loyal WM, so I don't level any WMs. Most of my units are elves/dwarves, so the illumination does't help them. I use Shydes and Shamans. Druids (for me) seem to be the weaker middle tier. Although they heal as well as Shydes, they don't have a Shyde's speed and they requir...

:lol2: Big typo there. I meant to say only basic WML is needed.

Re: Ideas to improve battle for wesnoth

Some basic WML knowledge is all that's needed. To add to Crendgrim, it's also a built-in filter so the add-on server doesn't get filled with nonsense.

Re: A little change to Dextroux Trait

Pointless to me. What's -1xp going to get you anyways?
(In fact, having a unit that is about to advance is a distinctive advantage in most cases than a level 2 unit)

Re: [Engine] 2x new Trait ideas. I can't resist. BUT:

I don't really see the point in 'courageous', so I'm not with you on that one. I think 'fearless' is fine. 'Fierce' would require much re-balancing, so I don't see the likelihood of that entering mainline. Eg I would never want a fierce Fencer. Their low damage (and now subsequently even lower damag...

Re: Wesnoth on Mac OSX 10.4

And XP is still used only because Vista sucks. And then people are just lazy to upgrade to 7.

Also, 10.5 had a significant change: it dropped PowerPC support and went Intel. Many computers that run 10.4 and before are PowerPC, so they cannot upgrade.
