Re: 7p Battle World

Well, I haven't tried it yet, but the issue I immediately notice is that the terrain is clumped together, and primarily empty. This immediately puts terrain-dependent factions at a disadvantage, because the majority of the fighting will be happening on the flat areas. I would recommend spreading it ...

I added two more modifications, Capture Peasant and Build. The first post will be updated with them shortly. :D

Well, I wrote a simple modification. It allows you to change your recruit list in-play for 20 gold. Obviously it only works on 1.11.x. Because modifications can be mix-matched, I'll be adding more little modifications to the add-on as I code them. I'll upload it to the add-on server once I have ~5 m...

Re: Exercises in Formula and Lua AI

Also, I'd just like to mention that the reason I'm excited about this AI (and I assume why others are excited too) is that it is the only Wesnoth AI that I've seen that can come close to beating a human player in a fair game. It is challenging, and if we can create an AI that is challenging to top ...

Re: Level 9 Technomancer vs. Ubuntu blues

I'm a little tired right now, so excuse me if I misunderstand your problem, but different versions of distros (and even different distros) are, generally , binary-compatible. So if you only have access to the internet on a remote machine, you could in all probability get the package from packages.ub...

Re: Counter-attack tactic: Do you have one?

When I play as orcs, I generally don't counter-attack; during the day I retreat and at night I attack. Don't undervalue ToD.
On a counter-attack, use assassins. Lots of assassins. :twisted:
They're fast, and can deal very good damage to retreating enemies.

Re: If Wesnoth has different AI difficulty to choose...

You might want to check out mattsc's grunt rush AI (it's in AI modification demos on the add-ons server), it's much better than the normal AI.

Re: WHAT TO DO if you can't beat a scenario in a campaign:

I can't figure out how to beat this campaign (caverns of flame scenario). I moved all heroes to glyph, activated, and elves all died...but the lava destroys everyone. What am I missing? I tried keeping all heroes near glyph. All elves were slaughtered by trolls. I tried looking around for an "exit"...

Re: khalifate descriptions

Well, it's been a while since I last posted here, but I wanted to say that I'm currently (in the general sence of the word) trying to contact noy about this.
I should have something to post here within a week or so.

Re: Exercises in Formula and Lua AI

:shock: Wow, that freelands grunt rush AI is much better than the default one. I played a rather nice game against it, with me playing drakes. One thing I noticed about it was that if some of my units are at the end of the left pass, then it won't move any units already there. I think this is a cons...

Re: You think a faction is overpowered? Come here!

A similar thing can be said of UD or knalgans. On a small map, knalgans can easily take over the whole field, creating a 'bubble' wherin no enemy units can pass. I like to use footpads for this. With UD, being able to rush at first night is a massive advantage, especially if your enemy hasn't gone i...
