Not saying you should, just that male and female variants can apparently have separate upgrade paths. I know this is probably painfully obvious to anyone who did coding, I'm just pointing it out.

I'm aware that that's possible, but it's not something I want to do with the Elvish Civilian. (A unit in the eventual sequel campaign might do that though.)

Am I missing something on the 05-reinforcements scenario? The undead have 60+ units once they finish recruiting after I ally with the saurians and I have less than 40 units half of which are level 0 with bad resistance matchups.

I think you are, seeing as I remain stuck there (and, not matter what, the saurians almost always die before I can get to negotiate with them).

Edit: not that the saurians, with pierce and cold damage, are much help in any case.

I'm working at (among other things) reworking that scenario, and I hope to be finished by the time version 1.14 is released. One of the things I've changed is to give the saurians an impact attack so they're not quite so useless against the undead. There will probably also be a lot of AI tweaks, which is what I was working on today (with limited success so far, though).

Given that it's a level with no recalls you could simply upload a special version for testing and we could try it out. :)

Well, the version I'm working on will no longer work in Wesnoth 1.12 though, so you'd need the latest 1.13.x. I could maybe do that once I have a version that mostly works.

Grrgrrgrr you people really are going out of your way to make me upgrade to 1.13, eh? Well, now that I've gotten Mint 18 working… but I first have to win all the campaigns I've downloaded over the past year. OTOH I still want to use those Shydes with arcane attacks.

Decisions, decisions…

Well, this won't be up on the 1.14 add-ons server for another few weeks, so you have plenty of time to decide. :P

Have you paid Blizzard their dues? You're all but carbon-copying their Soon™ concept.

It's a joke. You will not get it unless you are familiar with Blizzard, Inc.'s deadline policy.

It used to increase by 8, but I reduced it at some point and forgot to update the description. I've already fixed this in my copy, so it'll be correct when I release on the 1.14 addons server.
