Hi guys,
I'm working on a new website feature to show unit list just below the map.
In this way army comparison should be more clear (and maybe live game setup easier).



What do you think about it?

live sample here

Waiting your kind feedback.

It looks great. Are you planning to include scenarios not in the main game and its expansions?

Hi Peter,
I'm using a script/macro to extract these info from a spreadsheet that only include official scenarios.

Adding this feature to around 160 official ones will take a little bit.

Will surely think about spreading it on all other scenario.


Ps. as you can see on the live page every unit picture has a link to the relative page with full unit details.

It looks great. While at first I agreed that it would make setup quicker, I then realized I set up off the cards, not a screen. But I'm guessing there are guys who have a laptop or tablet at hand when they play. In any case, it looks great.

This looks great Ale. This is what I have always wanted included in the official scenario books. I find it very helpful having it added here. I can just as easily use my tablet when setting up scenarios. However we have been playing more often using the new Vassal Module you have recently updated. You did such an amazing job on it that it competes easily with the physical game.

That is so helpful. I don't play the game often enough to easily recognize the units as shown on the board. Them standing out so much helps a lot with recognition and planning. Greatly appreciated is you can spare the time to implement this feature. It also helps me put my reading glasses on less often :-).

Hi guys,
I've just completed adding "unit count" on all official scenarios.

Adding these details to all other unofficial ones looks a really hard work... at least in counting units.
But if we can manage to count them I'll do my best to propagate all these info on the website.

If somebody can help, I'm posting here a shared spreadsheet to be filled with unit numbers.

CCA unint count (unofficial scenario)

Please let me know if someone already have a similar sheet so we can integrate them.
Ale
