I added some custom counters to a game I am playing. What do I need to
do to make a valid .vmod file? I have tried various zip programs for Mac
and then renamed the .zip file to .vmod but when I try to open it in
Vassal I get the following error:

"Invalid Vassal Module - The file "file name here" in not a valid Vassal

I also tried the following:
I renamed the original (playable) mod file from *.vmod to *.zip
Unzipped it. 
Zipped it right back up.
Renamed the *.zip to *.vmod
Tried to load it and got the same error.
I did that to make sure it wasn't something in my editing that was
messing it up.

Help is greatly appreciated!
