Organized via web interface

Post by sokhanh21xn » September 11th, 2019, 2:43 pm

Hello,

And then there are campaigns that have some portraits but not all of them do.
Read: some portraits are missing. This is a bit annoying when you play a
campaign, have nice artwork and then suddenly some character speaks
that has no portrait at all.

I would like to suggest to make it possible to query the art asset via a web interface,
similar to the translations.

So for example, if a character has a portrat, it could be a green yes; and optionally
display this artwork + show the licence via clickable link.

And if there is no portrait you could add a recommendation for people to help contribute to it.

The reason why I think this should be a web-interface is because not everyone who wants
to contribute art, knows which portrait is missing. Not everyone is playing addon campaigns
for example; not everyone has enough time to read through the forum.
This is why I think it would be convenient to quickly see what is missing where.

Tks!

Moving to web site. There is some discussion going on there about notable characters. So they're taking a look at all them. If they're adding portaits to the pages, then all you'd need is a Wiki page for notable characters who lack a portait.
I forked real life and now I'm getting merge conflicts.

The process that generates http://units.wesnoth.org/ could generate lists of units without profile images, without animations, and so on. Could someone post the instructions for running the generating script locally? I haven't managed to run wmlunits successfully.

It took me several tries over the years, but I eventually succeeded. viewtopic.php?p=638659#p638659 https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/issues/3952

There is an animation stats page: http://units.wesnoth.org/1.14/animations.html

https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/blob ... e-wmlunits This is how wmlunits is run on wesnoth.org. It does more than necessary but it should be a start at least.

Thanks, I'll have another look. (Been a bit busy with following github issues)
