Scary! I guess that I can try that.
What is "Notepad++"? I have a "Notepad" that came with Windows 7, but
what does the "++" mean?

I assume that you are referring to the Module Designer's Guide (VASSAL
3.1 Designer's Guide). I read through the tutorial but that didn't even
show how to finish making a VASSAL module. It showed how to begin a
module and the components of a module, but not how to end making a
module. I mean shouldn't the instruction end with something as a "vmod"?
Perhaps that is supposed to be "understood."
Then I want to make an "extension", not a "module." So, how do I begin?

I am afraid that the relativity is not obvious to me. Can you explain
better how to start making (and ending) an extension?
I have imported a number of ADC2 modules to VASSAL (VASSAL module
manager / File / Import Module...), and then after saving the Imported
ADC2 ".ops" file as a "vmod," modified (Edit Module) the module. So, I
am familiar with editing a module and the components of a module. I have
never made a VASSAL module from scratch and have no idea how to make an
Extension from scratch.
