    A LOS tool that lock itself in the center of the hexes would be great !

    Thanks for doing all of this Vance, it is greatly appreciated. It will be nice to have VASSAL mods for all of the LnL games. I do almost all of my LnL playing via VASSAL PBEM, so the new mods will be great.

    Not sure how difficult it would be, but VASL allows you to trim the boards down to only the area that is in play, and cut out the area of the board not being used for the current scenario. Is it possible to add this feature to the LnL VASSAL mods?

    Thanks

    I'm glad that people get to play these great games with tools I can build.
    Yeah that feature in VASL uses some custom Java programing that I just don't know. I am adding some scenario boundary markers to help denote where the action should take place. Not as good as above but should help somewhat.

    I figured it had some kind of fancy programming to get it to work. The boundary markers will be a great addition, thanks.

    Hey Vance,

    Good to see this fine game getting some vassal love. I would like to see Noville get the royal treatment. I that in the works?

    Mark.

    How does PBEM work with this game? Looks like it would take a lot of file swaps due to the impluse system. I would be interested in tyring this.

    It can take a lot of file swaps as there is lots of interaction. One way is to do all the actions for an impulse and send the file. Your opponent plays the file back until he wants to interrupt your actions, starts a new log and plays from there. You can both also make the die rolls for combat for both sides.
    But yes it will take quite a few emails.

    I've moved these post here to keep this stuff separate. Please use this thread to talk about the Lock 'n Load series modules and extensions.
