Re: Cities of the Frontier (aka sim-Wesnoth)

Hi, I've been playing your campaign. I've played it twice and died within the first year, once in summer and once in autumn. I'd say it has nothing to do with campaign imbalance, just likely my inadequate skill as a player and maybe I need time to adjust to this fascinating gameplay. I must say cong...

Re: [brainstorm] New Wesnoth Species?

It feels a bit ironic to me that you attach that particular culture on a bird that is usually associated with death. Hmm... How is it ironic? My idea is to take what the Ravens, as in the actual bird, and what they stood for, and amplify their distinctive characteristics. Ravens are said to be inte...

Re: Snappy faction slogans, anyone?

This looks fun :D Loyalists- "Warrior Wesnoth wants you!" "Empire's finest" "Alive and kickin' since 1YW" "We are proud to serve" "This. Is. WESNOTH!!!" Elves- "Green land good, cities bad!" "Flower power!" Dwarves- "Ever heard of the butterfly effect?" "Say hello to my little friend!" "Money makes ...

Re: [brainstorm] New Wesnoth Species?

Hmm... I hope its not too late to add something I created a loooooonnnggg time ago when I was still in grade school... Note that this is not my original Ravens. I had to adapt them for Wesnoth, and so alot went from there. There used to be a very beautiful drawing for it done by a talented artist, b...

Re: My ideas on At-East/Ready animation

Really? The way I see it though, it's about as useful as the idle animations and recruit animations. They may not add anything to gameplay, they may not be shown very often, but that doesn't mean they're useless. Why do people still make them in the first place? Another point I'd like to emphasize i...

Re: Campaign art - The Rise of Wesnoth

Is it just me, or is his crotch region a bit too over-emphasized? :oops:

What's with the crotchguard? Hmm... How about trying to extend his toga (My vocab is a bit limited in the facet of cultural costumes) to cover his lower body a bit? :? Not sure what's best...

My ideas on At-Ease/Ready animation

I have an idea in my head that's just begging to be written down. Sorry if this has been discussed before... After playing Battle for Wesnoth for several years, I have always found it peculiar that some units have base frames that depict a 'ready-for-battle' pose while others depict an 'at-ease' pos...

Re: Medieval Combat

Hmm alright... Your changes are logical and acceptable. Afterall, anything can happen in a mod but... In my opinion, a small degree of 'evasion' should still be allowed. What I feel is that we should try to envision the war in this mod on a unit level instead of an individual level. As I mentioned i...

Re: Medieval Combat

I've actually thought about this a long time ago when I was brainstorming for a simpler project to do. What I feel should be done is a less complex mod (obeying the KISS philosophy) that rebalances all of Wesnoth's units. The way I'd rebalance the units would be different. I don't recommend allowed ...

Re: Orc Portrait Series

Are his gauntlets by any chance taken from a fallen Heavy Infantry/Shock Infantry/Iron Mauler? I believe that's what you're trying to portray in this guy... I like how you're giving the Orcs their personality :)

Re: Temple is finished/Straight castle walls

The pillars needs some shadow on them, and the perspective might be a bit wrong. I'm no artist, I'm just comparing between your temple and Wesnoth art... Other than that, I like what you're trying to do, could make a nice addition.

Re: xbriannova's multiplayer maps

After months of adjusting myself to military life, I've been plotting my return to the Wesnoth community ever since. Seeing that I couldn't seem to keep my campaign afloat before and after my enlistment, I've decided to attempt to contribute in smaller but hopefully equally welcomed ways. One way I ...

Re: Crossbowman

What lucky day it is for you, because I've been plotting my comeback with a release of some low profile add-ons rather than my Guardian Order campaign. Here're the image. Unfortunately, back then, I wasn't skilled enough to animate it... :(

I wonder if you're available for other assignments? I'm only really working on two projects right now, this sprite and a campaign, so I'm definitely available for other assignments. I'd love to help out in any way possible. Alright, that's cool but I won't be asking for any help anytime soon as the...
