Re: [mainline] Tentacle of the Deep resistances all wrong?

Yeah, I don't see the current resistances as making much sense. Pretty much all the arguments have already been made, so I won't rehash all of the ones I happen to personally agree/disagree with. ... etc. etc. ... So have you made a decision? Or should we have a poll? Also - Humans have +20% arcane...

RIght now there is just one kind of tentacle. Differentiating tentacles is a different (and more far-reaching) suggestion which should be brought up separately.

And do you think the hit-points should change? Because I wasn't thinking of suggesting that (or putting it in a potential poll.)

Re: [mainline] Tentacle of the Deep resistances all wrong?

This is kind of why I think there should be a pole. Poll is a great idea! Is there some commonly-used polling facility for these cases or should we just look for a generic web poll generator? Also, I've heard some convincing arguments here on the thread (not all in the same direction), so my opinio...

Re: Tath general alerts himself, calling himself Sir

Just out of curiosity, what does the underscore before the string (i.e. message = _ "blah blah") mean?

Re: [mainline] Tentacle of the Deep resistances all wrong?

I thought he meant the portal was travelling with it. If not, how does damaging the tentacle damage the portal? Portals don't get dragged along by tentacles :-P No, the thing is that the tentacle is part of a single arcane/magical entity - you hit any of it, you hit all of it. Or you destablize the...

Re: [mainline] Tentacle of the Deep resistances all wrong?

If that were the case, why can't it leave the water? Because it would have to extend all the way across the land. That's cumbersome. I mean, the portal is far away in the deep waters. I think convincing zookeeper would be the main thing you need to do to get resistances changed. (If it was a factio...

Tath general alerts himself, calling himself Sir

I'm playing "Descent into Darkness", on medium difficulty, with version 1.13.8. In the 'Small Favor' Scenario, part 1, we need to sneak into this manor. If you're noticed by one of the guard, he calls General Taylor, the leader in the castle: Sir! Undead creatures are coming out of the forest! Wake ...

Re: In Dead Water - who should get a Ring of Strength?

I was very pleased with my Strengthened Dread Bat in the campaign.

Once you go bat - you never go, uhm, back. Take that!

Re: [mainline] Tentacle of the Deep resistances all wrong?

zaimoni: Is that official or just your assumption?

Also - who gets to make the call about changing resistances? Is there an official procedure to have this considered? (Hopefully not a PR on GitHub)

Re: Wesnoth 1.13.10 (1.14 beta 2)

Can someone link to the new terrain graphics in this version (and possibly also to what they were replacing)? I'm particularly interested in the "directionalized gate".

Re: [mainline] Tentacle of the Deep resistances all wrong?

I think the arcane is to suggest it's always in the darkness of a cave or the water in is in, and since it is called what it is which is the tentacle of the deep which leads me to believe that it's always been deep under the water. There are lots of fish living in the deep sea, in the darkness. Are...

Re: How does soulless level progression / AMLA work?

pauxlo : That live unit level caps are just fine (and of course I've noticed them...) - they have a coherent explanation. Goblins are a weak race and don't get far in life. Some specialty units are kind of a trade-off between continued development and getting that special skills. etc. No problem. B...

Re: Statistics dialog "Inflicted" and "Taken" unclear

Other than the floating text suggested some time ago That's a super-easy default option which, in case nothing else is done, I really request be added. I don't see how to clarify it in the space provided. Instead of: 5739 / 5629.8 +1% you could just say: 1% over expected and have a tooltip list the...

Re: Recommended playing order for mainline campaigns?

In the 1.13 development tree, we've re-ordered the mainline campaigns so that players should be introduced to more concepts before being thrown into HttT I still see HttT being first in 1.13.8... Anyway, you're saying that the major ordering criterion is difficulty. What's the next major criterion,...
