well, you can post the sprite, for example. Even though the chances of something getting into mainline are astronomically low, but hey, it depends on what exactly are making.

@SkyRZ5: Do you only do monsters?

I guess monsters have a bigger chance to be included in some UMC, but there are also a lot of animations missing in mainline afaik: Mainline campaign sprites and animations needed
I have a cunning plan.

Okay so what i have to do is to just keep making sprite and post it in the UMC, i know the chance to enter Mainline is like 1/100

more like 1/100000000000000, but yeah create UMC first and when it's good enough the developers might add it.

There are tons of monsters in add-ons. I think it could use some more monsters, such as 'smaller spiders'. But of course there is the danger that you overload the core.

I know I have killed small spiders years ago. Maybe later I'll see if I can hunt them down.

There is a small spider in "invasion from the unknown" and I use a variation of it in my addon.

I've just seen this thread and I really like the idea to add some more monsters to the mainline of Wesnoth! Maybe if I get better in drawing I can help you out with some portraits! :D
