Game piece inventory

Postby wargamer410 » June 2nd, 2019, 6:33 pm

I'm creating a ACW module with a game piece inventory for USA pieces and CSA pieces. I can get it to show both USA and CSA pieces together but I would like it to separate them but I'm not sure how to do that. Thanks for any help in advance.

Create 2 Game Piece Inventory Windows
Show only pieces matching thes properties: {type=="USA" && map="whatever"}
If you want to only show the number of pieces a user has (for how many cards in hand, for example):
- set a Label for folders:$CurrentMap$ : $sum_Cardcount$ card(s)
- uncheck all the options (especially Draw piece images)

Thanks for the reply. I'm kinda new at this so does it have to be type or can I select player side. Not sure what these mean

Well, type is one of the traits I created in my module, just like map which is a GP for my maps. You can use any property. It was just an example.
So it can of course depend on the user.
