Re: The Trolling Mod

Man, that's a huge screenshot. (That's what she … nevermind.) I take it you never learned about cropping when your grandma taught you how to use image editing software. Whoa, where did all that come from? It must've been this thread — as if it awoke something in me. Something dark and snidely which ...

Re: Ideas board for Add–ons or not?

As for that, maybe we could allow posting of rough outlines or plots, with no work yet done or planned, to the suitable __ Development board. Of course, maybe there are some there now: I did not search the boards to see if there are any already. I did see one or two LFW–ish threads. Probably should ...

Re: Ideas board for Add–ons or not?

The description of the UMC tag for threads hinges on how you read that line in the preamble. The one which says a cool new type of add-on, See, the troublesome word there is “type”. Does this mean a technical class — à la the difference between [campaign] and [modification] , — or does it mean a gen...

Ideas board for Add–ons or not?

Apparently there is some confusion — at least for me. Per the “ MUST-READ ”: This forum is a place where people can post ideas they have had for the game. It could be anything related to Wesnoth. From a cool new type of add-on , to a small improvement to the help menu, to a new Wesnoth-related Web a...

Re: purpose of Ideas forum

I'm confused, though. Doesn't it allow for a [UMC] tag? If, by “additions to the game” it means additions or changes to a certain fork of the project and not to anything else, then might I recommend you guys change that Read This post to make it more clear? Well, of course: you mean that it isn't fo...

Whatever. Like I said, I've already decided on a name.

I take it you're trying to egg me on, but I can say quite unsyrupticiously that I am indeed developing — well, more planning at this point — a Food Fighters era. You want to see some of the sprites?

There. Easy as pie.

Firstly, you ignored the opener of the post. Second, you misunderstood the gist of the second paragraph, though I suppose that could be my mistake. Yes, certain things e.g. the Warcraft III engine will always be labelled as such, even though it, being less modifiable and extensible than Wesnoth, has...

Future versions? Heck, why not give us a sequel, too! What about Alariel's adventures working with Valmaryx?

New name for the game engine

This is superficial and is something I'll be doing myself. Names like The Battle for Wesnoth or The Sweet Life of Bees (forthcoming!) shall be reserved for the backdrop and such. Well enough that Dave or whoever didn't take the id Software approach and name their engine right out the gate — slapping...

Re: [mainline] list of new faction names for BfW era

Drakes could have something fancy as a new name, like "Reptillian Alliance", "Reptillian Conclave" or what Can-ned_Food suggested. Of course, there was that one guy who told us — once during the Dunefolk–formerly–known–as–the–Khalifate renaming discussion and once during a discussion on the Saurian...

Re: WhiskeyJack p623810

When I did the Dark Arena, Alariel was lvl4 and I think I needed to revert maybe once. So, you probably were lvl3 or did indeed have some bad rolls. Or, of course, didn't play at Normal mode difficulty. If you were lvl3 and got that far, then congrats. As for the spelling errors, you should look at ...

[mainline] list of new faction names for BfW era

Point was raised, during the recent discussions for the Dunefolk name, that the other faction names needed attention. Here are a bunch of very preliminary ones with at least three per each. Some of them are likely to need attention from those of you who are much more aquainted with the mainline camp...

Dunefolk domesticating horses or cattle?

Bleh, yet one more comment from me — but I think bovine versus equine beasts of burden has something to do with the digestive procedures of the ruminants. Cattle would be better at extracting nutrition and such from limited vegetable foods than would horses which have only a large colon and not mult...

Yeah, i guess yours is more akin to the style of the others than mine. One request: Would it be possible for you, or anyone I guess, to squeeze that bit about the veins of the never–scathed warriors being reputed to flow with sand rather than blood? :D Of course, the healers and medicineers would kn...
