Here you go with the fixed module.
Bart also changed a little bit statistics load inside scenario chooser (now it's really faster to load them all)

Download Here

Will also upload this on Vassal website.
Let me know if you have the opportunity to playtest it and find some more bugs, so that I can fix them before proceding with the creation of fanmade expansions.

Ok but give us a couple of weeks for this.

Just a little request if it's possible: in previous modules I really love the alternative colour versions of the armies. I mean X-Marian Roman; X-Carthaginian... I have used them anytime I have fought a civil war battle. Do you think it's possible to add them also to the 4.0 module?
Max aka Viridovilas

Ciao Max,
I can easily add "ScenarioX" as a Layer to overlap actual unit picture. (example below).

As you can see I've only "resized" them as I don't have pictures in separate levels, to keep them high res.

You can easily activate/deactivate it using right click on the block (so no duplicate tab inside "unit floating window"). All other unit features are kept, as I'm using the same vassal piece.

Let me know if this can work for you.
Ale

Added "Scenario X" layout to all available units.
This feature is immediately available in new scenarios (shortcut CTRL + SHIFT + X)

To do that in existing scenarios you should proceed like this:
- select and open a scenario
- on top menu bar select "Tools"
- select submenu "Refresh counter"
- click "Run"
The feature is now active

Hi guys,
while deeply playtesting new game module (hoping everything works fine) I've started thinking about adding "fan scenarios" and/or integrate "epic scenarios".

Poll
What would you perfer to see first?
all missing unofficial scenarios (base map)
epic scenarios (with epic map, epic deck and up to 8 players)

Hi guys,
I can see mixed results on the poll.


I'm actually working on "Epic map" integration on v4 module.

What about converting them "in group"?
Please feel free to select a designer reporting it here and don't forget to save each VSAV file following "map code".

Thank you again for your support and contributions.

OK, I guess I'll do mine (MMxx)!

But not immediately, during Xmas holidays...

Perfect Miguel,
take your time!

I have to admit I've played too few (if none at all) Epic games online.
Anybody with some suggestions to improve the module (except new unit pictures and new HQ cards when avalable)?
Thank you
Ale

Grazie

What do you think about the layout?
Anything to change?

Victory Banners / Blocks on top bottom bar or on sideboard as standard map?
Cards just below board or everywhere else?
Battle dice on main map or on sideboard?

Please let me know.
Ale

Added some basic features:
- epic deck (HQ pictures)
- cards counter
- automatic draw to hand
- right click to send a card directly to a specific are (left / center / right)
- dice on siedboard
- map name on sideboard

It should be functional right now.

I'm still in doubt about placing killed unit on top/bottom bar instead of sidboard (maybe splitting each row in 2 different 8 square row).

I think it would be better to receive feedback about that from players that used previous module.
Ale

Top/Bottom of the board, like on a standard map.

Battle dice on main map or on sideboard?
Main map. Easier to find than having to scroll all the way right.

Map name on sideboard.
I would put it above the map.

What I did was place a small die/roller button below the board for each Field General to use their Field General’s Initiative. Not only is it a convenient place to roll a die to get a result, the result is then easily visible and linked to that FG.

Hi Ale,

one thing which bother me is that when you install v4 and enter online room, you see players with v3.3

Then, when playing somebody with v3.3 while you have v4, strange things occur.

Do you think this would be prudent to have it as separate instance, so 3.3 does not overlap with 4.0 in lobby?

Regards,
Michal

Using the same lobby means users of 3.3 will become aware of 4.0 faster, and you will have more people play upgraded games sooner.

Also, you can right-click on a user and do Show profile to see what version of module they are using, so you don't have to start a game and wait for weird things to happen to find out if they're incompatible.

Well, then you have to log off and lo in with 3.3. Which is cumbersome.
Making it separate module, with different lobby will actually speed up the migration of boardgamers community to 4.0. Of course, once 4.0 becomes official on vassal page.

Thank you Dan for your compliments.


In the meantime I've published v4.1 including all EPIC materials (board, deck, official scenarios).
v4.0 and v4.1 are perfectly compatible. The only difference is that v4.1 includes epic materials (no errors if playing standard games with these different versions)

To download it you can use the link on first post of this thread.
I've also uploaded this new file on Vassal page (it could take a couple days before showing up).

By now I can say: "all official materials are included inside the module!!!"
