Post subject:  Updated VASSAL Mod

I've recently added some new maps and tiles to the Vassal mod.

Download it here!

These maps and (many) tiles include the following from Mapmaker:
-The Nova Eclipse (also with Passenger Variant)
-Offworld Docking Port (also with Passenger Variant)
-All of the 5x8 tiles from his recent Alien Starship, Deck Space, Railway Station, and Surveilance Station productions. As always, the tiles are accessible by clicking Tiles/Units and then Tiles, at which point you'll see several new tabs/headings. These tiles will work the same as the others.
-The new mod also includes the Cargo Bay Floor and the Railway Floor, which are Chris' blank maps, useful for serving as the base upon which you place the tiles to design your map layouts.

Also, I've added the following maps from Jedicartographer:
-Cantina --it's on the Restricted Maplist, and now it's on Vassal too
-Rebel Fortress --the other side of the Cantina map
-In addition, I’ve updated the Theed map with the newest version (in the Restricted listing), though the original Theed map (from MP1) is still listed in its normal place.

Lastly, I've made a slight change to how the maps are organized in the map menu. Now all the Restricted maps are listed with a " **" after their name. The Restricted List maps are all found at the top of the list in alphabetical order (according to the names given in the SWMGPA Floor Rules), to help clarify them as maps on the Restricted list. Of course, the rest of the maps are listed as normal.


For now, and until we can get it uploaded on this site, you can go to this link to download the new mod:
SWMinis.rar


Prior to downloading the new mod, I suggest that you go into your /Vassal folder and delete your current “SWMinis.vmod” file (it could also be listed simply as “SWMinis”). Then download the newer version and place it into your /Vassal folder.




Version 10.2 of the VASSAL Mod is now active. If you have 10.1 or 10.0, you are now out of date and it's possible that some things might not work quite right if you try to synch in with someone else who is using 10.2.

Just downloaded the new file, deleted the old SWMinis file, put the SWMinis.rar in its place, and now when I try to open it up through Vassal it tells me that the file is not a valid module. So what am I doing wrong?

I compressed the file to save space, so you'll need to Extract it once you download it. Use this freeware program to extract the file:

http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR/3000-2250_4-10745708.html (click on the bright green download button)

Once you extract the file (I suggest extracting it onto your desktop, for ease of reference). That will give you a file called "SWMinis.vmod" (or it could appear on your screen as "SWMinis")...either way, this will look different than the file that you downloaded.

Now move that file over to your /Vassal folder and place it where the old mod was. Now you should be good to go.

Thanks for the update Tint. It's great to have the cantina map. And be sure to look for the Easter eggs Tint has hidden.

The file has been added to the site, and I've put the link for it into Trevor's post,

Can this be done on a Mac? I can't seem to make it work

Sorry, I don't know anything about Macs. I think I heard that some Mac users have found a way to make Vassal work, though. I think it might be worth a quick PM to JonnyB123, because I think he's a Mac user, if I remember correctly.

If a Mac file is zipped you will need StuffIt.


In the past I just downloaded the vassal program from vassal
Then just put trevs mod on the desktop and opened the mod through the vassal program. I think it was open from mod and it worked fine in the past.

Trev the mod has all the files and maps in it right?

Yes, the Mod has everything (all maps, etc)...except for the V-Sets extension, which is 1 file that covers all 4 sets.

Ok then he will have to put everything in one file like in the old days like the ext maps.

Looks to be lots of fun, been far too long away from the game

Is there a new Vassal Mod with all the updated minis somewhere?
Does it have all the new maps if not anyway we can get a hold of mapmaker and other map guys and get them for Vassal.

most recent mod, and v-set 7 extension can be found in the DropBox that Dan just set up

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/94b3f86ypxwj ... _tWqQOG1ca

If I have the map names straight, the mod is not yet updated with the most recent restricted map additions:

Great Library (JC)
Starport (JC)
Tomb of Acolytes (JC)

That is correct: the new maps are not in there yet. I'll update this thread (and send the new version to Dan) when I've added them.
