Let me repost from another thread: Some feedback: I promoted an Elven Druid recently, and... Bad. Bad, bad, bad game. Naughty game. Do not mix the elves with the elfs. The Shyde (Sidhe) is from the ancient Gaelic "Daoine Sidhe" or Shakespeare elfs. (Book: Faerie Tale) The Elven Warrior, Ar...

A bunch of ideas and stuff

Split User's Forum into "Feedback", "Strategy/Tips" and "Ideas". Create a "Campaigns" forum where everybody can pool ideas (and scenarios?), putting together a campaign by teamwork. New terrains: snow and ice! And a "King's Highway" which only takes ...

Great. I've got the scenario file running and bugtested by myself. Now for the map. Apparently someone thought it funny to crash my progs while transferring... writing map from scratch at the moment, but I should have it ready later this evening, and in time for 0.5.2. I'm gonna zip scenario and map...

I let Konrad stand still the first round. I moved him on the second, after getting 2 rounds of recruit and recall. This scenario gives new meaning to the words: "Time is of the essence". I'd suggest you recall the Great Mage, Sharpshooters, Avenger and Paladins. Have them, Delf and Kalenz ...

Re: Volunteering to help with Undead Campaign

1) Different campaigns should be disjoint. Each campaign tells a seperate story, and should possibly be centuries apart from one another. 2) You can choose if you want it to be a more difficult campaign, or an easier campaign. You can choose if you want the user to be able to select between varying...

Volunteering to help with Undead Campaign

So far I've got one map, five new units and half a scenario coded. I've got ideas for about five scenarios. But I have to ask... 1.) Are the campaigns meant to be consecutive (ala Starcraft) or starting in the same point and each side winning (ala Warcraft)? 2.) Are there any rules I have to follow?...

Here are my new units ideas: Human: Sling Tower 30 gold, 1-15 ranged, 5 move, 60 exp, 40 hp. Cannot move in forest, hills, water or mounts. The idea is to get a Strong one and a Commander next to it. 3-15... Levels up to: Archery tower: 3-10, 6 move, 150 exp, 60 hp. Levels up to two: 1) Ballista Tow...

Minor map problem...

You know that map with the yellow dots and crossed swords that shows where your campaigns are. Well, they are removed each time you close and reopen Wesnoth. Strangely, it does NOT remove then if you save, exit and reload without closing the game. This is a minor hassle- since after discovering it, ...

Unit advancement

Say I get 500 exp on my Great Mage, want it to do summat. I'm trying to mod this in myself, I have a copy of Wesnoth folder for my modding and stuff... Can I do it this simply: Copy Great_Mage.cfg, rename it Master_Mage.cfg. Open Great_Mage.cfg, change advanceto=null into advanceto=Master Mage. Open...

How does Poison work? Can it kill a hero, effectively shortening the time limit on a scenario?

Sort of the same general problem for me- playing on easy, and being stuck for hours. Easy should be mostly a breeze. But I got stomped on several scenarios, notably Dwarven Doors, Ford of Ebez, and Gryphon Mountain. Easy seems to swing between Easy and Medium feelings- but yes, levels should have yo...

@Dave: Yeah, the Troll Warriors would be balanced if they just didn't move so darn fast. There's too much grassland in the start, and I got unlucky with my eastern enemy getting 2 "Quick" trolls. Suggestion: Maybe add more hills and forests? A dwarven kingdom should have more hills. Sugges...

Walkthru on Dwarven road, help on Dwarven Doors

The Dwarven road was fairly hard even on Easy. The trolls regenerated and kept walloping me, and when the second mage brought gryphons, it didnt exactly help, or that my Paladin couldnt cross mountains... So when I beat it at last, I felt like sharing some tips with others. Here's what I did: I recr...
