New Campaigns?

Post by Froobloops »

Hey,

I've gone through all of the standard campaigns recently. Are new mainstream campaigns being developed? and also are there any suggestions on well made add-on campaigns?

Dead Water is going mainline soon, and most consider Invasion From The Unknown mainline.

No, they don't.

IftU is very definitely UMC. It is not mainline, nor is it likely to go mainline in the foreseeable future. It is, however, very good.

I think what he meant is that most consider it good enough quality to be mainline, even it it likely won't be.

I don't understand why IftU can't be mainline? Is it just too "out there", or is it because of incomplete animations, or does it contradict wesnoth lore in mainline? I've always wondered that but never bothered to ask.

For one major reason, because the author doesn't want it to be. Also, art quality is an issue.

It also has known flaws that the author plans on fixing, but not in the short term since he's grown rather fatigued over working on it.
