Re: 1.5 request

A good approach to AI would probably be working at "tactics", little mini-strategies that can be applied to multiple but similar situations on the battlefield. Things like evaluating how to protect a weakened unit with the surrounding units.

Re: 1.5 request

Wesnoth is MUCH more computationally complex than Go. This might be true, but I don't see how we can be so sure. Games of Go involve many more moves than typical Wesnoth MP games, and so have much deeper search trees. I can imagine a research proposal that starts along the lines of "Complexity...

Re: Idea: Ability to see units during talking only scenarios

One thing that helps is that the talking unit is now highlighted, AFAIK.

Re: Wesnoth on signatures and how to spread it

Hmm...if I get some free time, I can probably cook up a logo and suitable banner. I do dabble in graphic design and such.

Re: Campaign: Glory in Blood

I've still got all my Frankenpack files, so I can slap together placeholder graphics if you find yourself struggling with graphics. That would definitely help. If you're willing to contribute placeholder graphics, I need graphics for Drukk, for a female elvish shaman-type character, and for a few d...

Re: 76-2

Actually it kind of makes sense that plate would make him more vulnerable to pierce - a large part of the problem with piercing attacks vs. skeletons is that it's hard to actually make contact with the bone - you'll usually just go through the ribcage, doing no damage in the process - but if he's c...

Re: Please don't use swear words in game text

I'm trying to think of a word that was invented for a fantasy world, that was specific to that world... Frak? ---------------- Now playing: Genesis - Turn It On Again via FoxyTunes No, not really. Because that word was just essentially a euphemism. As far as I can tell, there was no logical progres...

Re: On what version did you first play Wesnoth?

1.2.7, I think. Then I quickly went up to 1.3.8, to see what it was all about. And then 1.4, I'm lovin' it!

Re: Please don't use swear words in game text

It seems to me that you can have two options here. 1. Sneer at the other side, and make no progress at all. 2. Actually put thought into this, and help to develop something which could potentially be a unique addition to Wesnoth flavor, something which has already been supported by a developer, and ...

562. You feel a strange desire to double-check every tree within sight, to make sure it isn't a Wose.

Re: Creating a story for a campaign here!

Is it right(or good) to redraw wesnoth sprites, give them new looks and use them? And is it possible to copy/paste/rename/modify Wesnoth mainline campaign and unit files to make my own? Yes on both counts, that's the beauty of open-source software. You can use any of the resources used to make the ...

Dude, I'm very much in favor of those. I like all of them, actually. Hehehee..."mule-ears"...and they all sound completely appropriate for a fantasy setting, too. They all sound like they could have come straight from a Wesnoth battlefield. As far as anti-human insults go...stuff like &quo...
