Highlighting Side Switch improvements in v3.3+

Postby marktb1961 » September 19th, 2020, 1:31 pm

The Vassal team deserve thanks for all their amazing work over the past few months. So many bugs fixed and great new features added. Thank you!

I like all the improvements but I want to give a special mention to one of them, albeit seemingly simple, a particularly useful update: the Switch Side workflow. I've only used in for a two-player game so far, so bear that in mind. For me, this one change hugely eases testing a module. Also, by the same token it could be a boon for solitaire players - perhaps obviating the need for "Solitaire" role in some modules. I've been experimenting with semi-automated side switching at turn end using the feature and it works smoothly thanks to the Side Switcher selecting the correct side by default.

Platform used:
Vassal 3.4.10
MacOS Big Sur
iMac (27", mid-2020)
