Re: Eastern Europe at War (EEaW) - Marines and Sailors

Pardon the unearthing of an old post for one that is probably not topical. Sadly, I can't find image that we used when we were creating Colonial Marines. But by the term ''marine'' we meant a navy sailor/soldier on board/ Kolonial Korps soldat. It's a play of words, really - we didn't mean ''marine'...

Re: Need Some Creative Minds

How different are these bloodlines (Pantheons?) supposed to be? Just minor bonuses/penalties to some stats (like e.g. the different civs in the Civilization games) or actual different unit that all use the same underlying mechanics (like different classes in RPGs)? You could go even crazier and hav...

Re: The Black Cross of Aleron (formerly Besieged Druids)

Where does the trapdoor lead to? Looks like a loose end. It leads to that lone tree near the elvish keep. This is revealed if you step on said tree, giving you an opportunity to open the trapdoor. When I design interactive environments and puzzles, I always try to help the user distinguish between ...

Re: The Black Cross of Aleron (formerly Besieged Druids)

That could be a style thing. I would say that it should be consistent with other such messages: “Cured”, “Slowed”. I would also say that the exclamation should probably be kept because it is such a drastic ability; same as with charming an enemy to fight with you. Bear in mind that I last played thr...

Re: The Black Cross of Aleron (formerly Besieged Druids)

Surely, I am not the only one who would like the vernacular to include the words ‘nor’ and ‘xor’, et al. , used exactly as the logicians do. Honk iff you love formal logic. Anyway, your use of “nor” does seem to correspond with how I'd expect. Much like you would see “Neither rain, nor sleet, nor da...

Re: Witch Campaign: Mountain Witch

No need to be ashamed of inconsistency. :) Works of art will never be perfect. We simply make an effort, and sometimes make mistakes. There is no shame in that; the only shame is when we fail the endeavor to always improve our art, and when we fail to be adventurous for its sake. Also, sometimes wha...

What books/movies/television encourage you to play Wesnoth?

Whenever I rewatch Babylon 5, I find myself wanting to play FreeOrion. I was wondering if anybody would be willing to share and discuss the things that encourage them to play some of the various Wesnoth and related campaigns or skirmishes. Books, movies, television — that sort of thing. I don't mean...

Re: Would you date an Orc?

I'll resist the urge to link DM Of The Rings in regard to your masculinity–femininity line. :) As for Garona, she wasn't full Orc though, was she? I never cared much for the Draenei females, but one could see how an orc–draenei hybrid would be nearer to modern, statistically normal standards of beau...

Re: Remakes to stop! — email sent

Also, Eagle, you can be less rude when telling someone you don’t understand what they are saying, you know. Yeah: a bit of research would show that English is that person's second language by rather a large amount. As I remember reading someone else on the internet say: If I can't speak your first ...

What manner of the projection is the map of Wesnoth?

I would suppose that most people are treating it like a Mercator projection — although I've seen an old one which was azimuthal and in the southern hemisphere: https://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?p=578990#p578990 I ask because I am writing up the premise for a prehistoric campaign which require...

Re: The possibility to play a 2p-or-more game on a single comput

I think it is obvious enough: the tooltip for Local Game does mention “humans sharing the same machine”, and the Help page Introduction < About the Game also mentions hotseat play. Amberteresa simply didn't see these things — of course, people here were friendly enough to help while not insulting he...

Re: Patching a user-made addon.

Maybe you already did all this, but here is what I do in such situations: Make local patches and comments for the minimal changes necessary. Search for the message board topic devoted to the add–on. If it has one, post my patch or comments there. Elsewise, I don't make one. Send the author a PM if t...

Re: The possibility to play a 2p-or-more game on a single comput

During any multiplayer game, selecting “Local Player” as the “Player/Type” of a side will allow control through the user interface of whoever hosted the thing. Technically: controller="human" current_player="amberteresa or whatever" name="Anonymous local player" btw, you all reminded me to write a p...
