If each map is a board component, you can simply edit the board label to be “WhateverIWantToPutInFront”$GridLocation$. Works perfectly for what you are describing

Subject: [messages] [Feature Requests] Labeling hexes with leading characters

 

Greetings,

I would like to request a way to label hexes with a leading alphanumeric
character, similar to the way you can add a separator. This would come
in handy when several maps are abutted and you wanted to differentiate
the hex IDs between the maps. For example, if you had 3 maps, a north
map, center map, and a south map, you could define a hexgrid for each
and VASSAL would label the north map hexes as "Nxxx" (vice the "xxNxx"
format currently available), the center map hexes as "Cxxx", and the
south map hexes as "Sxxx".

Maybe there is a way to do this already by modifying the build file or
adding a class, neither of which I know how to do.

Thanks for your consideration.

Allan
