Re: Improved resistance/defense/movement tables in unit prof

The colors give a good indication. But graphic visualisation is clearer. An option to sort terrains by defense or movement cost could also help to see quickly the best terrain type for a unit. I don't think that terrain hex would fit in the description because there is numerous version of each terra...

Re: Make the UserData directory freely configurable in Windo

I just installed wesnoth few days ago on a computer with windows 7, specify the path to install UMC during installation IN the game directory. It works for the first download, but it seems to have forget it the next day and install UMCs in the weird userdata directory (users/appdata... ) after that....

Re: Improved resistance/defense/movement tables in unit prof

I think ingame display is pretty clear, but maybe because i'm used to it...

Improvement could be done in a simple way by mixing movement and defense in one table. Plus, it will take less place in description, making it easier to read. Hum, it's already done ... :roll:

Re: Improvement about trait "intelligent"

Just as the others traits, intelligent is most efficient with the right unit (low attack number, high XP requirement...) Strong and dextrous, if their values stay the same through advancement, are less efficient in proportion as the attack damage increase. Do'nt you think an intelligent horseman is ...

Re: Rain of Steel (art)

It looks great, but not much like a bike... Maybe the tires are not enough large. Some references that may help : Akira : Kaneda's bike I didn't find a good image of the bike in wonderful days, but maybe you could watch this movie for references... It take place in a closed universe much like yours....

Re: Issues of Gender

Don't know if I am right or if that will help, but I can give you a french point of view :P Maybe, as it is a undead unit with no gender, we can distinguish genders for the unit name and the ability name. In french, you may call this unit Ombre (which is feminine) and say it is a tirailleur (skirmis...

Re: Modifying base unit

Thanks, but as I said, it don't work, because I want to modify a unit for an MP era. It has to be in a unit_type tag :)
Though the code you give me will be helpful in my campaign.

@ monochromatic : that's what I have done. But as everyone said : remove_attacks don't work inside a unit_type tag.

Re: Which faction is easiest to master?

I also think Rebels are an easy starting faction... Almost every unit got melee and range attack with different type of damage. Their movement type is not to restrictive and they are neutrals... Each of this point make them easier to play with when you just discover wesnoth. Once the first learning ...

Re: The naming of wolves

I just start reading the Game of Throne novel. So their genders are the same as their masters.

Male : Greywind, Summer, Shaggydog, Ghost
Female : Lady, Nymeria.

You could add Gévaudan. It's based on a french history of the middle 18th century, beast of Gévaudan.

Re: Blueknights Questions

You can make it by slightly translating the mage back in all animation frames so it seem to stay at the same place. Or, maybe make it a ranged attack ? That way, the wolf will be considered as a projectile, and the mage stay at the same place. Don't know if the specified range of an attack has relat...

Re: [interface] - Sort Recruit by Language Name

Also, even if you use English, units from an add-on that have a prefix in their id field (i.e. A8_Elvish_Archer) would also appear out of alphabetical order based on language name. I think it would be better if the Recruit list is sorted based on language name, so that all entries will appear in al...

Re: Tribes of the North pixel art

The ranger clothes are meant to look like gray wool shirt :hmm: Maybe I need to change colour. For bolas, I was wondering also giving them to the lvl 2. Hood is new, but it is meant to be an upgrade of the lvl 2 cape (not scarff). Maybe the lvl 2 cape is not enough long to make it clearly visible. I...

Re: Tribes of the North era

There is a bone dragon in Rise of Wesnoth or Eastern Invasions, lvl 4 or 5. You could make lower level skeleton dragons, I don't think it would unbalance the faction. (with all bones the faction would be a little unbalanced anyway, as they'd be bad against arcane, fire, and impact) Yes, but they ar...

Re: Modifying base unit

EffectWML is only allowed where the WML reference tells you you can use EffectWML. Does UnitTypeWML say that you can put an [effect] in [unit_type]? No, therefore it doesn't do anything there. As I said, I'm not so good in english. I read different wiki pages, and don't find the reference which tel...
