New Vassal Tool – Transparent Templates App

Wargame App that tranparently displays templates on top of vassal. Free for Windows

When you play vassal modules, this app nicely measures and calculates damage areas, like you would on a proper tabletop. The transparency display can use different shapes, be rotated and resize to suit.  Examples of use are games like Carwars, that use a turn key, or Warhammer, to see an area of effect after a cannon shot, but my fav is minatures in Vassal.

You can download the app here from the kind folks at Limey Yank Games and you can see a couple of sample screen shots on this forum thread.

Update – Wellington (GMT) v3.1

The Wellington module has been updated to include:

– An indicator on the map showing the number of cards in each player’s hand.
– Preemption is automatically tracked.
– The combat strength in a leader’s section on the HQ card is automatically reported on the counter.
– The casualty display calculates the current victor and rout status.
