A Sylph description is a bit too much transcendental

I was translating and... Just what a nonsense is that http://units.wesnoth.org/1.15/mainline/en_US/Elvish%20Sylph.html Tremendously powerful in unfathomable ways, the sage-like Sylphs are masters of manipulating the bridge between the mundane and arcane worlds. Long years spent peering into the ethe...

Re: Russian translation IftU

Всем здравствуйте! Сделал обновлённый перевод кампании-аддона "Invasion from the Unknown"/"Вторжение из Неведомого", так как старый перевод от Dobryl безнадежно устарел с выходом переработанной версии кампании в конце 2015. Перевод должен быть совместим с последней стабильной версией кампании (2.1....

Re: A Whim of Fate [SP Campaign]

Hi! Thank for the feedback. I had reports about problems with save files. Yes, I must fix it. I tested everything on hardest difficulty. Four soullesses is enough for passing scenario 2. However I admit that it is not so simple. Possibly scenario 2 is the hardest in the whole campaign. It is quite i...

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Extra Units

Looking on portrait I see that Dirkfang (lvl1 southern naga) would have chakram instead of bow.
I found that this is a good decision.
But I've just sent an update of translation 'wesnoth-units' file for 1.15 and it is still archer Dirkfang there in desription and attacks.

Re: Russian translation

Как они их ни уговаривал, как ни напоминал им о перемирии — ничто негодяев не остановило. :lol: :lol: :lol: А я бы хотел, чтобы все описания были в таком роде, более живые и завязанные на веснотовскую историю. Ведь всего пара предложений, а какую картину автор перевода нарисовал! Хотя со стилем кон...

Re: Russian translation

По гномам действительно в своё время переводчики решили соригинальничать и придумали нечто своё в описаниях. Было это реально давно, лет восемь назад наверное, и когда я заступил на должность координатора русского перевода, я эту самодеятельность не решился удалять. По-моему, в этом что-то есть, опи...

Re: And idea of generic tutorial campaign

A plague you say? I say not. It is not over used its merely common for its a trope you are ether on the offense or on the defense. Typically a offensive war is lot less justified in having good morels. So far there are no "evil sided mainline campaigns" as far as I know. However the "I was attacked...

Re: An idea of generic tutorial campaign

I don't like the idea of the tutorial being humorous because it'd be so out of place given the tone of the game. I also dislike the idea of a generic campaign with heroes of different races, as it goes completely against nemaara's suggestion that campaigns should have a good, cohesive storyline. Al...

Re: An idea of generic tutorial campaign

Well, you can see an example of dialog between a hero and adviser in my previous post. It can mention any important tactical aspect actually. Would it be about terrain defence rate, resistances, movement restricts, alignment, traits, special abilities, about how to chose best unit to counter another...

Re: And idea of generic tutorial campaign

Would the "evil lich" part of the scenario really fit if the player plays undeads ? I think your idea of a treasure guarded by a Skeletal Dragon cover better this case. Anyway it could be nice but this means you have to find a way to have a different set of dialog for each race. There is a problem ...

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

I could in theory finish the HttT arc in a few months if motivated to do so (not counting the HttT rework). That is great! I think that is quite a generous suggestion actually and should be accepted given nemaraa ovbiously have some talents in creating stories. I suggest to give carte blanche to ne...

Re: And idea of generic tutorial campaign

The first couple campaigns in the first arc of the reworked single player story were stated to be Novice level campaigns, so I don't think it's accurate to say that there'd be a lack of beginner campaigns. If the campaign demands playing two races at the same time - elves/humans in reworked TSG and...

An idea of generic tutorial campaign

Since after many years of ossification I see that Wesnoth became more open to changes in mainline content, several problems arise. I mean Wesnoth mainline content is like a badly constructed house. You need a new good house, but you cannot get it instantly so you can not get rid of all bad things im...
