Re: Optional player's rating

> I think that player's rating can encourage people to play more. That is one assumption - the other may be that fewer players may play as a consequence. I don't have a real pro or con opinion, although I am mostly sceptical. But I believe that you could state that player rating may be optional for ...

Re: [interface] Change "Defense" to "Evasion"

Purely from a word definition alone, to me defence is very different from evasion. In the first I assume some defensive moves, which might include a step-back AND parry step with a shield or a weapon; in the latter I always complete dodging altogether without any contact whatsoever. At the least tha...

[User Interface] Unified / simpler colours for allied/enemy units

I would like to suggest simplifing colours. Specifically I would like to: a) show ALL enemy units, aka that I can attack, in RED colour b) show all ALLIED and FRIEND units in GREEN (or blue or whatever) Reasoning: In particular in large add-on campaigns with huge maps, there are several factions fig...

Wesnoth - new version?

Hello, I made a break again some time ago, largely due to reallife. Every now and then I look back to wesnoth to see what is new. I am reluctant to try out the 1.14.x branch largely because I know it quite well and am more curious about anything that may change. I think a few wesnoth devs are workin...

Re: Poll: Do you reload usually if you lost your valuable high-level unit because of a strike of unluck?

I think the poll is fine as it is, even if there were a "hidden intent" by the one who wrote the poll. It's a very simple poll. I answered yes because, firstly, that is the real answer - I do indeed reload. However had, I don't always reload. I also never use the term "save scumming" - it's pure pro...

Re: New feature to allow for easier voice acting

Personally I think it is not a good idea to store hashes, as filenames or directory names, just as Ravana has pointed out. The linux distribution nixOS makes use of that, and while the underlying (whole) design of nixos is very interesting ("bring reproducibility into linux"), it is very ugly (and e...

Re: BfW is a game that relies on save-scumming too much

> People are already doing this with save-scumming and debug mode.

What is save-"scumming"? Do you refer to the save functionality that
allows people to save a game they are playing on the computer/device?

Re: Wesnoth 1.14.6

> However, for better or worse, the current approach to doing releases is to push it out on Steam first then update everywhere else.

From a user perspective I find that very confusing.

Would it not be better to sync-release all at the same time + announcement?

> Among other things this system almost will kill the opportunity for abusing save&loads This is a bad definition. Now it is first april, I know I know but ... it begins with the term "abusing".

Re: Shouldn't a STONE CASTLE provide more defense than a wooden palisade?

> You'll find this kind of thing in pretty much every strategy game. The problem is not choosing things because they are simple, but making decisions that are not making a lot of sense. An example I can give is that wesnoth does not handle ammunition, e. g. archers having infinite arrows. While I un...

> For the wesnoth player since 2008, his post looks like not less than a trolling. Really it took 10+ years to come to such a conclusion? It would be dangerous to assume much at all from the years.

Re: [POLL] What Operating Systems do you use Wesnoth on?

We are almost evenly split; Linux and Windows is almost equal (in regards to users who participated in the poll listed above); mac is a bit behind these two but not that much.
