97 8/10/2020 7:32:00 AM Turn 2 German Message Do you still want the game saved?

If not I'll remove it.
96 8/9/2020 2:14:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message Regarding Tigers in the Mist, with the artwork and the instruction set of the game I could put a module together fairly quickly. If the intention is to have a module that simulates boardplay that's straight forward. Features and functionality can take a while.

If you have an in with the designer or GMT I'd be more than happy to contribute. I have reached out to designers before on other games and have not had any luck. I can't blame them. Handing over intellectual property to a stranger isn't tops on most designers' list of things to do. :)
95 8/9/2020 11:28:00 AM Turn 2 German Message I do like idea of bocage vs non but I also like
the idea of ownership of area by color for a quick COUNT.

You could have the VP areas with GOLD outline or some such too (guiding the lily here) but would help for
supply paths - as for like an F9 key to remove
markers so you can see teritory I like that - we use that on Cyberboard for Tigers in the mist.

BTW, if you area a VASSAL Module designer - how about taking a wack at the Tigers i the Mist game?

That is WAY overdue for Vassal conversion

The game desisnger Ray Freeman would be open to it as I'm sure would GMT.

Anyway, thanks and let me know when final BKN module is done.

94 8/9/2020 11:25:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Message My AH version of this module has automatic shading of the areas to distinguish between German/American/British control. I wanted to add it to this version but Kevin was adamant about keeping it as close the paper version as some players don't easily make the mental leap between the two mediums.
93 8/9/2020 11:22:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Message The shading was an option I added based on the request of Meng Ong. He thought a shading overlay would help with identifying areas terrain capabilities better than the current map markings. Plus with the shading you don't have to move units out of the way to see whether it's a bocage, city, town or clear. I think the hide/show button is a better idea.

The isolation marker is to add to the VP track of the Allies manage to isolate Cherbourg. Thanks for the ask. I think I'll add that note on the board to make it obvious for the players. With the isolate marker on the track, when you press the victory point button those 2 VPs are calculated into the total.

But adding an isolated marker or indicator for the German units is a good idea.
92 8/9/2020 11:02:00 AM Turn 2 German Message Module looks great.
Two questions - what is the shading tab for
It changes the board different colors - is that just for visual? - I would have thought perhaps it was area ownership - Brown, Green and Grey but I guess not

Also, if unit is isolated is there a marker there?
I see the one for Cherbourg but not for a unit (or area) .
91 8/9/2020 10:37:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Message Thanks for the game, Bob. I do readily admit that Serendipity held me in her favor this game. Three cleared beaches along with SME on D-Day with no landing disasters other than having to give up the advantage. Following up with a string of successes on the 7th did leave the Germans on their heels. I'm sure the Germans still had some fight in them, but I would have conceded, too. Sometimes the odds are just not in your favor. I'm always up for a friendly match and would appreciate any feedback you have on the module.
90 8/9/2020 7:04:00 AM Turn 2 German Message I will surrender at this point - your rolls have been pretty good and with Caen gone I'm done.

Thanks for the game and the look at the noew module
and good luck for the rest of your play.
