Copyright violation

Hello altogether, I found a possible copyright issue in the popular Minetest mod Protector Redo. This mod is used on many Minetest servers where you can protect your houses with protection blocks, which use a texture which looks like the Wesnoth logo. This file looks exactly like the Wesnoth logo, i...

Re: Quality of the add-on campaigns

I really would appreciate, if there is a rating system, where you can give 1 to 5 stars for an add-on. The prerequisites are that you must have installed the plugin an you have not already voted for it. In the add-on list the average rating and the number of ratings should be displayed. To avoid mod...

Re: Inventory

The Wesnoth engine already supports items and many campaigns make use of this feature, but there is currently no way to display them in the user interface. So adding a visible inventory for own and allied units would be a great addition to the game. However, sometimes the item feature is used for te...

Re: [mainline] Melee "marksman"

Well, Wesnoth is not Reality. I think “marksman” is a simple and easy to understand name for that trait. Having two different abilities with the same effect may unnecessary confusion, especially to new players. We could agree that the term “marksman” in the Wesnoth world has a broader meaning than i...

Re: [engine] Achievement system

If the game outright tempts me to "try this outlandish challenge!", then for me attempting that instantly loses most of its appeal. I no longer feel like I'm actually doing something special, and I know for certain that it's possible to achieve, achieved by lots of other people, and something that ...

Re: Chart widget

Can this widget also show bar charts like in the attack prediction dialog? Hello gtgtdf, this should be easy to implement. This requires new key type= in the data tag to switch between line and bar chart. The only difference is that I have to draw rectangles instead of lines. We could even allow mi...

Re: You've been playing Wesnoth too long when...

1215. You knock a metalhead and don't expect them knocking back, because Dark Adepts have only ranged attacks. I don't get it. Why should metalheads look like Dark Adepts? http://rvamag.com/sites/default/files/articles/inline/SunnO1.jpg Maybe I played Wesnoth so much, that I don't know how a metalh...

1216. You think, that guns have only one shot.
1217. You steal potatoes from the field, because you think that peasants don't have a zone of control.

Re: Copyfraud in a GitHub project called wesnoth2

But they literally stole images and sound files from Wesnoth without observing the GPL. This is not fair.

Copyfraud in a GitHub project called wesnoth2

I just realized that a team of former Wesnoth developers copied Wesnoth's castle and other images and relicensed them with the MIT. This non-copyleft license is not compatible with the GPL. The questionable github project wesnoth2 can be found here: https://github.com/anura-engine/wesnoth2/tree/mast...

Have you tried using the [avoid] aspect for the locations of the villages?

Re: Donating to Battle for Wesnoth

Maybe it is possible to establish a foundation. In Germany, for example there exists a legal form named "Stiftung" which is similar to a nonprofit Limited (aka "gGmbH" in Germany), but has stronger regulations. It requires a clear foundation purpose, the approval of the federal state and the foundat...

Re: Donating to Battle for Wesnoth

What about a crowdfunding campaign for Kickstarter or Indiegogo? People can pay any amount they want and gain a little attention for their donation, e. g. a special entry in the game credits for $10, a unit portrait based on the donator for $250, a Wesnoth t-shirt for $25 or a Wesnoth gym bag for $2...
