[mainline?] Recruiting animation

Post by Desertofsounds1 » April 4th, 2011, 4:08 pm

How about units like lietenants / elvish captains do their 'leadership thingy with sword' animation when they recruit?

Like dark sorcerers do when they recruit?

Units which have such animations are already wired, IIRC, to do them when they recruit. The trouble is that quite a few such animations are missing ;)

:| There's another forum I haunt where people do this. Here's what the development team did about it:



Nothing.


Remember that the people who animate for Wesnoth do it for only about $250 per entire unit that they animate. It can take months to do that for some people. They're not just going to appear out of thin air because you're threatening to quit.

You're not paying Wesnoth anything, and to be honest, I don't think you can expect you to get whatever you want for free in this game. Besides, if you really want these animations, why not make them yourself? :hmm:

Assuming you’re just joking, there’s really no point for this thread to continue to be open to replies here. The artwork needs to be done, and it’s currently amongst the lowest-priority tasks for the core art developers. Other people are welcome to contribute animations for the game, nonetheless; the Art Contributions forum was created for that purpose.

If you aren’t joking, then, well... I don’t know, I guess we can live with one player less. ;)
