Epic Between the Tides (A 1.14 single player campaign)

Post by Argesilao » June 21st, 2018, 3:39 pm

Hi everyone!

This is the reference topic for the single player campaign: Epic Between the Tides

The campaign was realized for the version 1.14, for windows, and is totally written in a barbaric kind of english ... perhaps :roll:

Basically It's a nereids adventures with some small digression in other race.

The campaign is complete and was tested some times, at least at the intermediate difficulty (I'm too lazy to test one of my campaigns at the difficult level :doh: ) but the code's bugs are like the real bugs, a multitude hidden in the dark; so every feedback about any errors are welcome. You can post it in this topic.

There are eleven battle scenario and two dialogue scenario.

Have Fun!

Unwelcome_Visitors (Maybe remove that _?)
'...and his gracious queen,...' -> '...and her gracious queen,...'
'..need a port where to find shelter from the storm, or a place where to refill...and host you,...was there...' -> '...need a port to shelter you from the storm, or a place where you can refill...and be your host,...was here....'
'...only one knowed with two volcanic cones...' -> '...only one to be known to have two volcanic cones...'
'...Instead I know very well because even the soil is important to us!...' -> '...But I know very well that even the soil of this island is important to us!...'
'Who am I talking to?' -> 'Who am I speaking with?'
'..., and this community is the owner of this island.' -> '...which is owning this island.'

...To be honest I'm to lazy for more. Let's hope someone else reports as well after the update.

Something went wrong when decided to kill Ruckborn instead of freeing the Merfolk leaders first.

And the orcs are still hostile and neither of the leaders was freed.

Btw, why are the days and nights in your campaigns longer than usual?

Fixed, was a consequence of the previous error

In 08_The_Saurian_Homeland.cfg the text says Scylla must be in Bashgrat but the victory condition only checks for Kai-Pelas and Lich-Promeunt. Also should it be spelled "Bashgrath"?

In scenarios/09_Battle_for_Bashaur.cfg there is a typo: uesr_team_name= _ "Shuru Drakes"
I found this scenario very difficult - perhaps i do not have enough gold or veteran units?

For what I saw, probably both of them.
You can earn more gold finishing quickly the previous scenario; In addiction, to save gold in the previous scenario, don't recruit too many units, but only what is strictly necessary to protect the run of the heroes towards the saurian city, so you save gold and turns.
About the veterans unit, the drakes are vulnerable to the pierce attack, so your brawlers can't do much;
But I think you can win also recruiting level 1 unit, like Merman Hunter and Fighter, and waiting the Drakes in the water, where they have a very poor defence.
About the time factor, to finish quickly the previous scenario earns more gold to the saurian side too, so it can easily resist to the drakes sides in the south.

Thanks for you feedback!

To Come Back Only To Leave Again
Scylla starts on a village but that village is somehow not under my control.

Were a Kai-Pelas responsability the two invasions that the island had suffered after so many decades of peace?-> Was it Kai-Pelas' fault that the island had suffered two invasions after so many decades of peace?

Argesilao, part of the dialogue at ‘Fishing Gold’ is not translated at all.

After defeating the naga I get the option ‘Ma rimaniamo ancora un po’ which I actually understand but many players won't.

Suggested translation: ‘We should remain here a while longer’.

It happens when an unit is moved in a village with the move_unit command.

Do you really want the Lich to have the name 'Lich-Promeunt'?

Explanations
Diamnod -> Diamond

Comeback to Irdya
the ogre and the magician -> the orc and the magician
Since the orcs know how to navigate? -> Since when do orcs know how to navigate?
his army -> her army
(Because you are refering to the army of Li'sar.)


I'd like to point out that 'Irdya' is not the continent Wesnoth lies on. Irdya is the 'realm' or 'world' Wesnoth lies in, comparable to our 'earth' or our universe (that's somewhat up to debate I think?). Wesnoth lies on a continent that is simply called 'Great Continent'.

Yeah! There is a character in the Heir to the Throne, in the scenario The Bay of Pearls, which have a Sea Orc type.
But it's only an unique characters, used only in the HttT official campaign and, by me, in the UMC campaign The Gerardine Ascendancy.

It merely sounds like it could have been a mistake.

EDIT:
Comeback to Irdya
Defeat all the enemies leader -> Defeat all enemy leaders

Explanations
The search for the saurian with Kay-Pelas and Lich Promeunt -> The search for the Saurians with Kay-Pelas and Lich-Promeunt.
The search for the dwarven with Ruckborn and Gelsius -> The search for the Dwarves with Ruckborn and Gelsius.

Where on the map of 'Mysterious Island' is 'Explanations' supposed to be? It doesn't look familiar. I mean, it does kinda, but the details don't match.

Comeback to Irdya -> Comeback to the Great Continent

Why not give Gelsius a silver crown instead of a 'loyal' marker?

Gelsius can recall Orcs and Ruckborn can recall Humans.

EDIT 2:
Hot Heads Produce Cold Bodies
Lord Drain -> Lord Dain

Green Trolls
silvan -> sylvan
Silvan -> sylvan
Drain -> Dain

Also, isn't 'Lord' a title instead of a name?

It's about in the middle of the island.

OK, I fixed it.

To say the truth, I don't remember if this things is how it should be or not, probably not.
For the moment I corrected the thing.

Of course, but I added it to the name to give a little solemnity to the character.

Errors fixed in the 2.0.6 version ... perhaps
