Flight to Freedom

Last updated 1/29/23 (although before that, it hadn't been updated since 2/22/14, so much of the info on this page may still be out-of-date)

Flight to Freedom is a campaign featuring the Drakes. The hero, Malakar, and his tribe have been enslaved by humans, and Malakar must free the tribe and take revenge on his oppressors.

Latest version is 5.4.1 (Wesnoth 1.16.x+ compatible only)

News started, not that I expect much to come up.

Artists wanted here for a new Kogw graphic.
Announce your loyalty to the Drake cause here!

I need feedback to keep improving. Keep it coming.

Revision 27 released, with many changes. A major update.

Poll updated. Redeclare your loyalties here!

Poll updated again. Prove yourself here!
Campaign is on campaign server (requires CVS). Unless any major bugs arise before 0.8.5 is released, all future updates will take place on the campaign server.

revision 28 released on campaign server. Contains new drakes, Kogw graphic, and several balance changes. Requires CVS or better
Need attack/defense animations for Kogw graphic, need indoor time graphic (the picture under the map)

revision 28.3 on campaign server. This is necessary for compatibility with CVS as of 9/24/04 (when the Drake Slave was removed). Also has many bug fixes, including the bug that caused scenario 2 to hang.

revision 28.4 on server. Bug fixes, balancing, additions to River of Skulls (credit Wesvoid), and an easter egg (not telling you what, but I will say it's randomly activated in Endgame).

revision 29 released. 1.4MB. Major changes:
many bug fixes
thunder spirit spawn animation
debugger unit for testing and cheating
improvements to Rebellion, Manor, Exodus
new sound in the victory sequence
new Drakes
Note that there are some nasty engine bugs (Savannah #10569, #10570) that cause the recall list to disappear in Open Ocean, and the campaign to quit altogether in Drake Escape. If anyone can help, I would very much appreciate it.

New version. This changes the pier tiles to bridge, and it adds the Drake Hatchling back and the Drake Guard required in scenario 21, fixing a major bug involving recruitment.

New version. Bug in Drake Escape (#10570) worked around, but recall bug (#10569) is still at large. I also have made Kogw level two, and gave him a level 3.

New version released on campaign server. (2.2)

I know it's been overdue for over a month, but here it is. I've finally got the underground scenarios balanced, but there are so many changes (and so little time to debug) that I have had to release a beta. Hopefully, unless any major bugs are found, I'll finalize FtF 3.0 in a week.

In the meantime, PLEASE reply if you find any bugs.

version 3.0

FtF 3.0 finally released!

Many changes across the board, far too many to list, but here are the major changes (including those of the 3.0 beta):
storyline changes
Rebellion enhanced
underground scenarios balanced
bug fixes, dialogue changes in Landfall

version 3.0.1

game-killing bug in Landfall fixed (map was not sent)

version 3.1

updated for 1.12+, not backward compatible (beginning-of-scenario saves will still work)
new terrain added: dark tiles, from UtBS (replaces some dirt, sand in caves)
maps updated for new terrain
image references updated to reflect 1.12 directory structure
terrain code for lava bridge changed to ` instead of ' to avoid conflict
Skeletal Dragon, Watch Tower moved into FtF from EI, SoTBE (credit Hanno for alerting me to this)
old wesnoth-8.ogg moved into FtF
soundtracks updated for music changes/removals
balancing changes to Underground, River of Skulls, Endgame
unit .cfgs updated for 1.12 compatibility
easter egg temporarily commented out, pending consideration

NOTE: due to technical differences between the old code and the 1.12+ compatible code, I was forced to split the campaign into two distributions, which are on their respective campaign servers. Because of this, however, the translations will not be current until the branch is created on wescamp (so that translators can update it).

3.2 is on the campaign server. It [i]should[/i] be (almost) fully compatible with 1.18, but I can't guarantee that every animation will work right. I have also made balancing changes up until Exodus (level 16), but the cave levels are still buggy.

Any feedback is appreciated!
