Thanks for your reply! 

So if i understand you correctly? I can't just replace one .png file
with another (using the exact same name) and then expect it to work. I
need to re-link each picture through vassal even though they have the
same name? I'm hoping this is not the case because i have 1500 pictures
i need to re-link in that case. I think it will be easier to redo the
whole mod in that case.
