A returning player, here, when I noticed that SPI modules are now allowed! A couple years ago, I made a module for Outreach: The conquest of the galaxy, 3000AD but only used it with "local" players when I noticed that other SPI games were being blocked. Now that they seem to be allowed, I would like to submit the module I had made.

It appears that someone else made a quick-and-dirty attempt at a module. IMHO, my module is more complete than the currently hosted module. What should I do to submit my module and still play nice with the other author?

upload and add your version to the exsisting module page - note differences as required in comments. Just don't overwrite/modify their stuff

see http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/Module ... Guidelines for more

Hi,

Great news about the SPI Games.

FYI, the link for "NATO: Operational Combat in Europe in the 1970's" is actually the game Normandy (Normandy_v10.vmod).

thanks,

brian

Indeed there's not only some mixed modules, but also some major wiki formatting issues (and for major I mean "link to the module in red", either because the link is badly written in wiki markup or isn't uploaded) e.g. Grenadier, Nordligen in the 30 year quad, and A mighty fortress.

A funny issue is that for the module WW3 1976 to 1984 the cover image is that of.. Dreadnought ! I chuckled, as Naval Historian... ;)

There's a list of all uploaded files here: http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/Special:ListFiles, so you can always search for the correct file and fix the link when you find such an error.

Not sure quite where to post this, but a forum about SPI games suddenly being available seemed like a start. I just wanted to point out that the module page for Voyage of the B.S.M. Pandora shows the box top for, link to boardgamegeek for, and description of Voyage of the B.S.M. Pandora, but the module downloadable on that page is named Wreck of the BSM Pandora (SPI) v1.vmod and is a module for, exactly that, Wreck otBSMP from Ares #2, not for Voyage otBSMP from Ares #6 as the page implies otherwise.
If this is not the place to discuss that, perhaps someone could suggest a better course of action for me to take.

Thanks, It's an useful tool, but sadly useless if the module creator (or uploader) forgot to actually upload the file... whose seems the case for Grenadier and Mighty Fortress, but for nordigen indeed was a typo in the link, already corrected by another fellow.
