Hello. I am a 31 years old Wesnoth player from Europe, i am a man.
I like almost all games, who has either big maps, or maps suitable to my strategy, when i play.
Recently i was not very successfull at playing Wesnoth, i do not know why, but i want to, because it is the only strategy game on linux, which i tihink, i can learn to play and to win.
I tried Freeciv. Can not win against computer...
Tried Freeorion. Better. But still very strong AI and very strong 'monsters' in its galaxies... but Freeorion i like, because of large cosmic map and technology tree and so on...
Wesnoth i like because it reminds me 'total annihilation kingdoms', the main diffrence is that Wesnoth is turn-based, while 'total annihilation kingdoms' is real time.
I want to experience as much as in TAK, but in turn based mode, so i choose wesnoth now.
Maybe it is a good idea to create a thread about it, because this is aspect of the game: maps, large, various surface (like in TAK), while various units levels up in battles... just only turn - based.
So, here i am, i will try to play online a little now, will write somewhere in this forum how it is now for me.

Greetings. I've only just registered, but I've been playing off and on for a few years. I really like how far this project has come since I first found this game in 2012.

Splendid work. I look forward to seeing continued improvement in the game.

As far as myself, I'm a hardware repair specialist in the Pacific Northwest of North America. I'm also a long-time video game aficionado...and by long, I mean since I was 5; I mean since we first had an Atari 2600 in our living room way back when.

Anyhow, you probably don't want to listen to me prattle on about the old days. Let's have some fun.

Hello... I started playing Wesnoth last year, but the first time didn't manage to keep me entertained when I reached the Elvish Incursion campaign ( especially on that troll valley chapter ) and I uninstalled the game later on to clear up some HDD space. This year ( specifically this year's September ), I have gone back to it and discovered the Scaling Mod. It made the RNG less frustrating and I am enjoying it very much. Much more when I discovered the zombie survival map from Era of Magic ( combined with the Reign of Lords and Scaling Mod ) with the "turn limit" off. Wish someone made more of that, and so I decided to do just one. It started with a bigger one, but then I just went with a smaller ( 1 Player survival ); But I took a look at the .cfg file of the original survival map... And just decided to do some test maps ( sometime on the future ), running through the basics so I can grasp the flow of the coding. I also do some sketching ( though not in Wesnoth style ) but no coloring yet, still learning it. I am also interested in creating unit graphics for this game, maybe my first goal is to create a unit and its promotions ( with two versions: one good for vanilla [level 1-3], and another good with Reign of Lords [level 1-5]).
