Re: [MAPS] CnF Arena

For the time being, I keep it up–to–date on the Wesnoth_1-12 add-ons.wesnoth.org server.

Color Mod icon, another version

I toyed with something like that, but my arrangements looked much sillier — like a troop of psychedelic pachyderms. I don't know why i didn't consider something like yours. Anyway, here's an alternate which i later devised with the long flag. You might be interested in keeping a copy of it for furth...

Troubles with [side]color=

I am attempting to use one of the “core” colors — e.g. brightgreen . The color is shown to be ‘Red’ when I am gathering the game — not a problem there, I'm simply providing information. When I begin the game, the flags on that Side's villages are all colored black — so, I don't see a red flag and I ...

Can-ned Food's absurd ramblings

I'll be posting ideas of mine which I have little or no interest in pursuing. Maybe some day, but that depends on whether this I favor this old Wesnoth to the new engine. Or something else entirely. Question 1: Why doesn't the preprocessor perform Macro–file substitution in the symbol of a Macro def...

Workarounds for lack of submenus in the cursor menu

Now, understand that Wesnoth doesn't do “proper” submenus. It simply quits the parent menu and presents the user with a new one. That being said, having customizable pseudo submenus for the cursor menu (a.k.a. the context or right-click menu) would be useful simply so as to keep the menu tidy, regar...

Re: Large scale battle -> platoons! : imagery

Someone could write a Yertle–stacking MP campaign for Wesnoth. Like a hybrid of Jenga and those mecha warrior toys from the '90s — the ones with the pressure pads that made their limbs fall off. On a more serious note, you could simply bypass the problem by preferring to add an emblem in one of the ...

Re: Large scale battle -> platoons!

To be honest, when I first tried Wesnoth a year ago I thought that everybody was a simplified platoon.

You could easily script a Merge action in WML or Lua. You'd need to define unit_types for every iteration up to the max.

Re: [MOD] Village Conquest collection

Yes, if a scenario wasn't designed so as to accomodate No Zeros then you'd have a difficult time of it. I figure that skirmish scenarios would have the expectation that you'd be playing with lvl 2 Leaders who could recruit mostly lvl 1 troops. As for the Default Era, the No Zeros mod does slightly c...

Re: Skyships

You are proberbly aware, that you are asking along the line: How does magic work? indeed, I think what distinguish good fantasy from nonsense is that magic should respond to some logic, which the reader (or player, for a game) can understand to avoid too many deus ex-machina situations. What makes ...

A few insipid comments…

It would also make sense for them to tame underground beasts like giant spiders, worms, centipedes, olms etc. Deep Dwarven Spider Riders sound good as a scout. “Spider Riders, muster!” I'd be a Spider Rider. “What all do you do?” they'd ask me. “Well, I'm a Deep Dwarven Spider Rider, for one.” I'd ...

Re: Add search function for the campaign menu

What it could use is an internal manager that doesn't load assets from those Campaign add-ons until you attempt to load one of its savegames or replays. Or, you tell it to do so.

It would be nice if more add-on authors had a more modular and librarial (liberal?) approach to their work.

This topic is for the discussion of my collected custom events and MP modifications which focus around Village capture and ownership. It is available on the 1.12 Add–on server. At time of writing, I have released “No Zeros”, which makes lvl 0 troops unable to capture Villages, “Volume Counts”, which...
