Re: Engine support for real ranged attacks

Thanks for taking this task on, lipk. This has to be the most desirable game play feature that still lacks engine support. So much interesting strategy and even map design is only possible with true ranged attacks. 1. Should the target unit be able to retaliate (provided it has an attack with the re...

Re: Help with testing Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.15

Congratulations on reaching this advanced milestone. You had to put in quite a lot of time and overcome some serious technical challenges to reach here. But you never quit. Adding and calibrating the operations layer has made a marked improvement to an AI already far beyond the competition in skill ...

Re: Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.14 now available

The extreme ranges of that slider (it goes from 0.1 to 2 times the default) are definitely way too much. [...] They might be useful for certain SP scenario settings though, if I ever get to adapting Fred to other maps. Quite surely; a number of campaign scenarios allow you to set the offensiveness/...

Re: Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.14 now available

I haven't watched the complete replays in detail yet (some are quite long!), but even what I've seen so far is very useful. Long replays may be the best compliment Fred could receive... it really did take that long to beat him and there were times I wondered if maybe there was no hope against this ...

Re: Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.14 now available

This version contains a huge amount of improvements to the AI evaluation, but the most visible changes are probably that Fred can now also play side 2 of the Freelands map and is not restricted to playing only Northerners any more. Huge improvements indeed! Playing all factions and both sides of th...

Re: Wings of Victory 1.0.6 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14/1.15)

We had "dictators" for (visual) art and music for years and I don't see how anyone complained about that. We didn't have anything of the like for writing and look where mainline is at after more than 10 (!) years of continual improvements on the campaigns. If that's the only way to actual...

Re: Wings of Victory 1.0.6 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14/1.15)

The proposal (as it is), is all there in its own thread (as it was a proposal meant to spark discussion, a lot changed from the original post though...). Later in the thread, there is a concrete proposal for arc 2 (the HttT arc) because that's the first one that was supposed to get done. That is, t...

Re: What would you like to see in a longer Dunefolk campaign?

Are you interested in stories about the Dunefolk coming to the great continent? Are they already there before the Wesnothians, but secret? Absolutely no to both. I see an interesting twist that could be used here though. After finding sparse ruins of Wesnothian colonies and outposts, that tell of t...

Re: Wings of Victory 1.0.6 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14/1.15)

I don't think there will ever be a "list of standards" or the like, because that's simply not how writing works. Naturally, but there absolutely must be at least some positive examples of what the standard actually is, in the form of a completed campaign or scenarios or something, for it ...

Re: Wings of Victory 1.0.6 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14/1.15)

gameplay S01, S03? I may need to replay these scenarios again, but I thought their game play was quite good. I suppose S03 could benefit from using the experimental AI that recently became default within development builds. This makes for a tougher opponent without it looking like he has too much m...

Single Player campaign overhaul discussion (non-Developers Forum version)

Posting these responses here since I cannot do so on a developer forum topic directly: So, constraint 1: further (incidental) depictions of Drakes in mainline between WoV and NR need to be worked to connect those dots.

Re: Wings of Victory 1.0.6 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14/1.15)

currently we have 3 "hero" species and 2 "villain" species Which species are you thinking of here? There are a lot more than 5 species in Wesnoth, so I'm not really sure what you're thinking here. Most likely he meant factions, rather than species. Loyalists, Rebels and Knalgans...
