Re: logic for multiple reactionary attacks???

I think there is no logic, only pseudo-explanations... but this is the way Wesnoth works, and we cannot change it, because the consequences to the gameplay would be enormous . It would throw balance out of window, and the whole game would have to be redesigned; which is why it should never happen. T...

Re: Genders for all races

the notion of gender (in the meaning 'social role somehow idiotically derived from the individuals biological sex') itself is a non-rational one which only brings constraints to how an individual can develop it's personal role(s) & identities(s) in society I think humans have many traits correlated...

Re: Is electricity a "human right"?

Human right is a misleading term. If try to approach it theoretically, philosophically, ethically, then we will either have to accept arriving at absurd conclusion, or making way too many poor axioms. As with many such terms, human rights is a vague concept that has roots in our social instincts. E...

Re: What programming language do you prefer?

To write programs you need a programming language. But the programming language is just a tool, it is not the goal (if you want to learn programming). You need to learn the language, but you should think beyond it, because one day you will probably have to leave it. When you are programming, you are...

Re: USA Gun Ban... You Have to at Least Respect Their Opinio

Rising crime rates though poverty well we can argue about it. I state it is a fact. Compared with [insert a name of some poor country] or [insert almost any historical era] most of people here (whatever "here" means for you) are rich. But it does not stop crime. There is some correlation between (r...

Re: UI-mod for colorblind?

I am searching for a mod, which will show the playername above every unit. The original problem was already solved... but this seems like an interesting idea anyway. Anyone else (the developers) has the same opinion? Though instead of above, I suggest displaying the player name below the unit, appr...

Re: Heart Surgery

I am going offline for a week, so just wanted to say that I appreciate all your reactions. My friend was promised that he will really really have the surgery this September. (It seems to have a rational cause -- it is not good to do surgeries mid-summer, because in hot temperatures wounds heal worse...

Heart Surgery

I apologize for asking here, but this is the only international discussion forum I participate. My friend needs a heart surgery. He is trying to get one in Slovakia, but it is very complicated. He has been already waiting almost half of year, his situation is gradually getting worse, and it is still...

Re: Suggestion: Optional Win Conditions

All we need to test this idea is a multiplayer map pack... for example just copies of existing multiplayer maps, with added optional victory conditions. Either a new map for each "game mode", or a dialog with possible "game modes" displayed to first player in the first turn. (Later in future, the "g...

Re: wesnoth update?

It is considerably easier to compile a stand-alone application than it is to compile an application designed to update other applications, particularly if said applications have a variety of versions that the update might be applied to. I think the application should not do this... the installer sh...

Well it's unusual because it doesn't happen often. It doesn't happen often because it's hard to do. I will use your example: Creating 15 Zombies in a battle This is unusual in normal circumstances.

Re: Achievements

I think achievements are only truly going to be useful if they're also integrated into multiplayer, where people can compare them. That depends on what exactly do you expect from achievements. I usually think about singleplayer, so for me it is like another difficulty. Like you choose "easy", "norm...
