Vassal doesn't have the facility to generate maps, you will need to
create these yourself.

However, it does have the facility to generate simple images for the
game pieces. In the Module Editor, have a look at the 'Game Piece Image
Definitions'. Follow these steps:
1. Create some colour definitions and give them names
2. Create some font definitions and give them names
3. Create a Game Piece Layout. A Game Piece Layout is a template to use
to generate pieces. It specifies the size of the pieces, the border
style and allows you to place shapes, text and NATO unit symbols.
4. Under the Game piece Layout, create your Game Piece Images. For each
element in the Layout, specify the options for each element in the
layout like colour, text, NATO unit type etc. Give the image a name like
Piece1.png, then Piece1.png can be used to create a standard unit in the
Game Piece palette.
