Re: [Request] Shuffle sides icon

Decided to try a few alternative approaches, since there's been a lot of arrows.

Re: A Battle For Wesnoth Miniature Wargame

"Do double damage" is basic multiplication. "Do 1.25 x 1.25 x .7 damage" is not... though adding percentages instead of multiplying would make it much simpler. Still, having to constantly multiply by .85 and 1.45 and other annoying numbers would slow the game down substantially, and a lot of people...

Re: [Request] Shuffle sides icon

I also went for arrows.

EDIT: Decided it was clearer with less outline.

Re: Khalifate feedback thread

From khalifate point of view, I see very difficult attack or advance due to your total lack of chances of negate a hex forest to an elf player, As you dont have any unit with more than 40 def to place there Actually, you have exactly one - the falcon, which has 60% everywhere. No ZoC, though, and t...

Re: Mainline: Make plague work on villages

Thus I've discovered that WCs are virtually unused in a serious match. This is precisely because they are not worth it. Too risky. So giving them a small situational bonus is not a powerup. It is actually an incentive to even use them. Attached is a replay of me losing to Drakes. As you may discern...

Re: Khalifate feedback thread

Im curious as to how effective woses would be in the first place vs Khalifa considering all the blade and the fire arrow archer? Doesn't seem a logical buy to me in the first place imo All Khalifa except the Khaiyal are weak to impact, so woses do extra damage; they already have terrible defence, s...

Re: Khalifate feedback thread

throwing axes would also make sense since they fight with axes in melee as well and it would fit nicely into the lore. giving desert people a cold malus (-10%) would solve many problems at once, too. we would be able to see more interesting day/night cycles against the ud and drakes (similar to loy...

Re: Valkiers portraits: It's like I can touch you!

Main problem with the arm is that the upper arm is too long, I think. If I follow it up from the elbow, I get the impression that his shoulder should be behind his left wrist (ie. connected halfway down his torso). It also seems like the perspective is a bit weird in general to me... if you look at ...

Re: Khalifate feedback thread

also after a little more thought and some playing around game play im curious if the Jundi is to powerful a unit vs the drakes *and maybe the orcs though i am not specialized with this faction*. It seriously pokes the hell out of everything the drakes have and its impossible to retaliate them.. Wil...

Re: [interface] Movement bar

Go to Menu->Unit list or hit alt+u. It will give you a list of all your units, showing their name, moves left, HP etc. If you click on the "move" heading, they will be sorted by remaining move. It's unlikely that this list will be added to the interface like you suggest because of the issues Joram m...

Re: Group Turns Idea

Thank you for the timely response. Since you've apparently seen threads with the "Team Turn" idea as a suggestion, would you mind sharing the links with those with me? Or at least explaining why the idea was turned down. Personally, I can't think of a single reason that you wouldn't want to impleme...

Re: Khalifate feedback thread

One other thing I saw talked about in the games: Falcons. Falcons are better than bats and cheaper, they don't have traits, I trained one for a pet but he bit me, etc. One thing to keep in mind is that these guys don't have anything else that can control water so the falcons need to be able to make...

Re: Khalifate feedback thread

Some thoughts on balance after playing bit against the AI: It also seemed like the heavy cavalry unit was a bit overpriced especially compared to loyalist cavalry (which may not be a fair comparison but I'll make it anyway). It is actually less tough than cavalry (especially considering how likely t...

Re: Khalifate feedback thread

The Hakim's description is "Ekim use their knowledge of ancient medicine and herbal concoctions to quickly bring the Kalifa soldiers back to the front lines". Should the first word be "Hakim", or is "Ekim" a plural form or something? EDIT: Never mind, just noticed that a lot of the other units also ...
