Easy access to useful campaign information

Post by Spirit_of_Currents » June 24th, 2018, 2:53 pm

It would be nice to have a place just for those spoilers that make campaigns easier. (For example, how to get every loyal unit in HttT.) Why is my idea good? Because it may be boring to read walkthroughs or scenario code just looking for secrets.
There are very much electrical currents in my brain.

In order to make this list, someone is going to have to read through the walkthroughs or scenario code looking for secrets, which, like you say, would be boring. That may be why nobody has jumped on this idea. To get this done, you might have to do it.

For what it's worth, there's a list for HttT in the final scenario's WML. Whether that's up to date is a different question, getting all the secrets might require reading all of the scenarios' code, and updating the walkthrough as you go.

I updated that list last year during the build-up to 1.14

To be honest, I considered deleting it but I decided that it doesn't matter because the walk-through threads don't just tell you about must (if not all) of them but tell you specifically what to do for each.
I forked real life and now I'm getting merge conflicts.
