it is on the server, but I could not find an announcement.
Nice idea, but it looks like christmas is still missing...

It's two old existing single-scenario "campaigns" just strung together. Christmas hasn't been written as far as I know.

I'd suggest adding a first screen where you can select which holiday you want to do by moving to signposts or some such, since the scenarios don't follow one another. Maybe like "Invasion of Eliador"...

Maybe someone could take the xsnow-screensaver and make a santa-unit from it ?

I made a scenario-selector for the holidays-campaign, and
also tweaked the scenarios easter-eggs and halloween a bit.

Who is maintaining this campaign, where should I sent these files ?

I'm "maintaining" it. Not that I do any work on it or anything.

Ok - here are my changes:

* New scenario "Holiday-Intro" as scenario-selector (also served as playground for mapmaking and WML :)
* moved/renamed campaign from "Halloween" to "Holidays"
* Scenarios return to Holiday-Intro
* Easter-Eggs: scroll_to after teleporting, sound + dialog at each nest, option to label the burrows
* Halloween: Time-warning at turn 16
* some beautification of the cfg-files

A few notes:
1) You should put everything in its own directory, i.e. one scenarios/, one maps/, one units/, and those should all be nested inside of a directory called "Halloween".
2) Currently, the campaign server will not allow us to rename the directory from Halloween to Holidays, so don't do that.
3) I refuse to publish anything using the indentation you are using. (This is just an idiosyncrasy I have, so don't take it personally). This is what I consider correct indentation:

Code: Select all

[if]
	[variable]
	name=eggs
	numerical_equals=5
	[/variable]
	[then]
		[message]
		description=Someone
		message="Blah"
		[/message]
		[endlevel]
		result=victory
		[/endlevel]
	[/then]
	[else]
		[message]
		description=Someone
		message= _ "Blah"
		[/message]
	[/else]
[/if]

			description=Someone
			message="Blah"
		[/message]
		[endlevel]
			result=victory
		[/endlevel]
	[/then]
	[else]
		[message]
			description=Someone
			message= _ "Blah"
		[/message]
	[/else]
[/if]
I'd like it if you reformatted your WML to fit that.

1) The zipfile has just the changed files, not the complete campaign
1b + 2) Yuck :-(
3) I will have a look

As I understand it, the campaign server identifies campaigns by their directory/.cfg/.pbl file name. So, if we change it from Halloween to Holidays, we would not be able to upload it as just an update to the campaign. It would have to be a whole new one, and we'd have to delete the old version.

I would appreciate it very much if the campaign "Holidays in Wesnoth"
could be moved/renamed to a directory with a fitting name, i.e. ".../Holidays".
Naming the whole campaign (for historical reasons) ".../Halloween"
after one of its scenarios is at least misleading.

You could set the title to Holidays in the pbl file. It would become a minor issue when it became time to delete it, but nothing too bad. If the game ever gets a 'delete campaign' button, it would be a non-issue forever.

I already have set the title to that! Really, the only time it shows up as Halloween not Holidays is in the directory structure itself, and I already explained why that has to be the case.
