Re: Allow only one unit of is type

Hello everyone! I wanted to make special units/heroes that can be hired, but onlu one per type. What's the easiest way to do this by using scripting only? I thought it's right to introduce new resource types, but I can't figure out how to, so I suppose they're within the compiled game not scripts. ...

which is pretty close to isometric projection, used for most Wesnoth units.
There is a significant difference; compare the perspective of AoE's (isometric) buildings with those of WC2, for instance.

Re: Retouching Aleona's Tales Graphics

http://opengameart.org/content/lots-of-free-2d-tiles-and-sprites-by-hyptosis works well with all Wyrmsun and Aleona's Tales sprites. Just credit Daniel Harris "Hyptosis" I had seen that one before, it's pretty cool. Though I'm not sure if they would look out of place in Wyrmsun (given the colors us...

Re: Wyrmsun 1.9.0

I was thinking of something in the line of Leaderboard counters in StarCraft . If you're not familiar with how it works, StarCraft has several pre-defined parameters like kills or resources collected, but also an option to have a leaderboard with custom text. For example, in this Brood War shot the...

Re: Wyrmsun 1.9.0

I have finally played the new version a bit. Here's some feedback: 1. When a lot of quest objectives are displayed in the lower left corner as an overlay of the playing field, it really gets distracting. For example, in the second Dwarf quest the objectives eventually take up a substantial part of ...

Re: Wyrmsun 1.9.4

BTW, which version was the first "official" Linux release? I remember you mentioned a while ago that the game could theoretically compile for Linux but you had not tested that. I assume that since then Linux has become one of officially supported platforms. Yup, that's right. Akien was very kind to...

Re: Gorkan Software Hiring for Share of Game Profit

Thank you! I am used to working on a Linux/C64 so I have no idea how to compile on Windows. Actually, if you don't intend to change the engine itself, you don't even need to compile it, you can just download the nightly builds provided in the repository: https://github.com/Wargus/stratagus/blob/mas...

That's a bit too harsh, don't you think? Everybody has to start somewhere.

Re: Gorkan Software Hiring for Share of Game Profit

It looks like I am even more confused, I cannot find an executable. I thought it was like the engine I made, just the source code and you would have to copy paste it into your own project. Oh no, you just need to compile the executable and that's it. All that's need then are the Lua scripts the exe...
