Re: Enemies are afraid to attack ancient liches

I understand the thinking behind why the AI do this, but it can be easily exploited. Of course it can. As well as you can exploit the AI attacking you wildly without paying much attention to terrain or time of day. The AI isn't particularly intelligent, that's why it most often has access to much m...

Re: Enemies are afraid to attack ancient liches

When I played the Secrets of the Ancients campaign , on unpleasant (normal) difficulty, certain enemies weren’t ever tried to attack full health ancient liches. That's because of the lich's drain attack. Attacking an ancient lich with a weak melee attack has a high probability to leave him with mor...

Re: The Rise of Wesnoth (alternative mechanics) UMC add-on for 1.14

Do you know about old carryover system? It was 80% without minimum starting gold. The new one is 40% on top of minimum defined gold. With the old system it was much more important to manage your gold. Yes, I know the old system. I think some of the mainline campaigns still use it, or at least did u...

Re: The Rise of Wesnoth (alternative mechanics) UMC add-on for 1.14

[*]Gold carryover is 5% - 10% instead of 40%. Starting gold is increased. This is done to improve balance. I see why you did that, but I think this would remove any incentive from the game to keep an eye on your treasury. With the regular gold carryover, I see basically three different economical s...

Re: Game Mechanic Question: Defense

I've scoured the forums and can't find the answer. Feel free to roll your eyes :roll: How do enhancers (Leadership, Illumination, etc.) work while a unit is defending? Example: Human Archer at end of movement at dusk is standing next to a Mage with Illuminate, so if the Archer was attacking it woul...

Re: The Hammer of Thursagan Revision

From the 1.15.1 changelog:
The Hammer of Thursagan:

Removed scenarios 4 (Troll Bridge), 5 (Invaders), and 7 (Mages and Drakes).
I'm sure there's a reason, why round about 25% of the campaign got simply zapped, but I can't think of one. Anybody able to enlighten me?

Re: Orc units - graphics

After Tolkien invented orcs, they appeared in many fantasy games and wesnothian orcs are "classical" orcs for sure. Yes. As an example here's a Bloodbowl orc: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-PCtJ95XKW0Y/Ts0ICPKHeuI/AAAAAAAAAjI/2zrUzP5z_Is/s1600/P1040164.JPG Looks pretty similar. And here's a picture from...

One last question, I couldn't find the Roar of the Woses, but there's one called Story of the Wose, could be this one or it hasn't been ported to 1.14?
No, Story of the Wose is a different campaign. Roar of the Woses might haven't been ported to 1.14 (yet).

Re: recommended campaign sequence

Do not forget about user-made campaigns from Add-ons section. Much of content there is better than mainline one. In my opinion. Yes, there are very good ones out there. But a lot of them is quite mediocre and/or incomplete as well. So if you're new, and don't know exactly what to look for, I'd stil...

Re: recommended campaign sequence

I think, the order the campaigns are presented in the Campaign menu, is a reasonable one. Afaik the order changed a couple of releases ago, for this particular reason. Of course, you can always leave one out, or leave it for later, if you don't like the story or don't want to play this special facti...

Re: Female Avatars

I do not get "female character". Do you mean like hero in the mainline campaigns? If that's the case, I can think of Nym in Under the Burning Suns, Li'sar in Heir to the Throne, lady Jessenne in The Rise of Wesnoth, and I think Elyssa in Northern Rebirth. Of course, there are female characters in U...
