Change Log

  • 6/22/2022 - Initial Module upload.
  • 6/23/2022 - version 1a - Some have had issues with being able to view the Solitaire mode. This should fix that problem.Also fixed issue with Confederate Evant cards not getting "Face Down" Command.
  • 7/6/2022 - version 1b - Some have request "Delete" capability for the Map borders. This version will allow that. Hold the SHIFT key while selecting the border and there is a menu to move it or delete it.
  • 7/22/2022 - Version 1.1 - Added text to Card draw Pile for Discard deck, Fog of War Cards, and Friction of War Cards.
  • 12/29/2023 - Version 1.1b - Added missing player aids and charts, added missing counters (such as "Good Ground", etc.). The counters will be available in the Pieces tab, or active via right-clicking on counters when creating a new scenario but are not active via the right-click menu on the existing scenario templates unless you update the counters by going to Tool->Refresh Counters. Or you can still go to the counters area and add any manually.
  • 12/31/2023 - Version 1.2 - Fixed a few issues found in the earlier modules, such as several orphans and missing items, including an order of battle chart. The "Shaken" marker now goes below the unit counter and then "All Units Shaken" marker now goes to the bottom of the stack. This is more in line with how the game is played on the table with these markers below counters and you should no longer need to drag counters around to re-order them in Vassal. I also resized the 1d6 to be more in-line with the existing dice images and I also added sound clips to the dice rolls for a little fun. This module should be as complete a representation of the game as possible.
  • 12/31/2023 - Version 1.2a - Made a few additional fixes from the earlier 1.2 which I missed when moving counters around and trying to consolidate everything. Added a "Targeted" icon/counter and menu item to units to help better keep track of when units are targeted for attacks, especially useful when resolving artillery fire. I think (hope) this 1.2a will address everything.


There is a "How To Use" video in the module Help Menu. Included as pre-defined setups are the first 6 scenarios. Some charts are included, but not all. These steps were taken to insure ownership of a physical copy. I hope you enjoy the module.
