C&C Ancients is Richard Borg's game of ancient warfare, published by GMT Games. You can find info, rules, scenarios and more on Commands & Colors: Ancients website.

Version 4.2 by marktb1961 is a major content and features update that builds on version 4. New features include click-actions, full end turn automation and GMT's CDG Solo System (used with kind permission of GMT). More details in the release notes. The module is considerably larger than previous versions due to more scenarios and functionality. Log files are typically 500Kb+ in size which may be a consideration if saving many log files on a free cloud service. The basics of game play will be familiar to users of earlier versions and the module's Help menu includes further guidance.

Vassal compatibility: Due to a bug in Vassal, user preference for block strength display (icons or number) is not saved between module sessions and will default back to "icons". A fix is included in the next Vassal release (v3.6.8). Sorry for the inconvenience.

Version 4 by alecrespi is a complete redesign (change log below and more details on CommandsAndColors.NET website).

Version 4.1f1 is compatible with v4.1. It makes a small change to the End Turn button action, resolving a movement trails issue brought about by Vassal v3.4. Contributor: marktb1961

Epic Name Tags for v4.1: To deploy labels, replay the CCAEpicNameTags file as a Continuation File' after opening an Epic scenario. Label or delete the name tags as required. Important: For Vassal v3.5 onwards, Load Continuation is under the Tools... menu. Do not load as a Game or Log File!

Version 3.3 by g1ul10 includes a solo mode and introduces automatic re-placement of attacker/target markers.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ v4 Changelog

- modified icons (from left to right: undo, next, disconnect, change side, p1, p2, dice from 1 to 7, terrains, units, notes, charts, end turn / clear)
