I can download user-created campaigns from the extension-server, but the quality is varying. I'd like to find a list of campaigns that are complete, mostly free of errors and playable.

I don't want to download a campaign, play through 3 scenarios and then have to see, that the campaign is incomplete (no other scenarios, but the storyline hasn't ended yet), or some bug make it impossible to progress further.

    Asking for recommendations is pretty subjective, so might get closed here. However, a better question is probably whether there's any place which ranks campaigns by quality / popularity, or any sort of existing recommendation engine for campaigns. – Oak Nov 13 '10 at 20:48

    I think, most of it hasn't to be subjective. If a campaign is incomplete, has many errors or incomplete/not matching graphics it is not the same quality as more matured campaigns. Problem is, I cannot see the matureness on the listing as I want it download. That's why I asked for high-quality campaigns. – Mnementh Nov 13 '10 at 20:59
  • I see, point taken. Maybe you should edit your question to clarify what exactly you mean by quality. – Oak Nov 13 '10 at 21:09

I suggest you look at some of the Imperial Era Campaigns which are of good quality.

There's also the dedicated forums for user-created campaigns on the Wesnoth forums on which you can have direct opinion form the players and updates on new and upcoming content for customized campaigns and scenarios. :)

    The Imperial Era Campaigns link is now dead, so I have removed it. If anyone has a new link for the campaigns, feel free to add it. – Robotnik Mar 4 '17 at 10:17

Simply by just connecting to the Add-ons functionality...

... blindly accepting whatever comes by default in the choice for add-ons service...

... functionality will just pop up like this...

... finally choose "Campaign" as "type", then sort by "Download count".

    That just means that it's been downloaded a lot, not that it's complete or high quality. – Roddy of the Frozen Peas Aug 19 '19 at 6:18
  • This doesn't actually answer the question. Popularity (which is what downloads measure) is not guarantee that the campaing is complete. – Mandemon Aug 19 '19 at 6:35
  • As there is no guarantee nor the possibility to guarantee, is the actual most near proxy. – 205822 Aug 19 '19 at 6:50
  • BTW. Right now some of the most mature campaigns of version 12 didn't seem to made it to version 14. However provision by Steam makes mandatory to be at most recent stable (ATTOW version 14). – 205822 Aug 19 '19 at 7:10
  • At the other extreme, gamers wanting extremely mature campaigns (even if that means to coexist different releases of the game in a single host) they could very well want to provision version 12 extra Steam to access them. For version 12 the contents of the screen shots I posted would be likely very very different. – 205822 Aug 19 '19 at 7:15
