IF YOU DOWNLOADED THE 0.1 SoS MODULES, there was a problem with the images imported to VASSAL. When the ADC2 symbol name is used more than once, the importer uses one image for all. Consequently, many units in the VASSAL 0.1 modules display the wrong image. I have changed the symbol names in the ADC2 module and import the scenarios again -- 0.2 Series SoS Modules. You can replace the 0.1 modules with the 0.2 modules and continue your saved games (".vsav") with the corrected images. Thanks cgm, 8 Oct 10


VASSAL module required increase in maximum heap size. File / Preferences / JVM maximum heap (in MB): 1024 MB worked.

As the "Size" thing above doesn't seem to work, the modules are about 36 MB. They may take a while to download.

UPDATE 0.2:

The "0.2" modules replace the "0.1" modules that had incorrect images.

UPDATE 0.1:

The "0.1" module versions replace earlier versions that did not have hidden units.

I haven't added charts/tables or rules for the game. That is a bit beyond what I am willing to do. Perhaps others may wish to do so.

UPDATE 0.0:

VASSAL Streets of Stalingrad is imported from ADC2 scenarios.

The following Readme was made by Nick Bell for the ADC2 module. I have edited it for the VASSAL module. cgm

Game Errata:

These modules incorporate all known errata through 28 Sep 2003 as provided by L2 Design Group.

Scenario 3 has 21 Stuka Markers.

The setup charts call for a 3rd Bn, 822 Arty Rgt, 300 Rifle Division. This is incorrect and the unit has not been included.

The countersheet is missing an ATR Company for the 650 Rgt, 138 Rifle Division. This unit is included in the setup.

Players:

The ADC2 module has five players: GAMEMASTER, German, Soviet, GE Revealed Marker, SU Revealed Marker. The ADC2 GAMEMASTER has view of all hidden units. When translated to VASSAL, the GAMEMASTER has NO view of hidden units. As this is the same as VASSAL's observer, the GAMEMASTER player has been deleted. The German and GE Revealed Marker are allies with different hidden unit characteristics. The Soviet and SU Revealed Marker are also allies with different hidden unit characteristics. VASSAL does not have the same range of hidden unit features; VASSAL treats the German and GE Revealed Marker and the Soviet and SU Revealed Marker as the same player. Consequently, the GE Revealed Marker and SU Revealed Marker players have been deleted.

Units:

Vehicle units capable of dismounting can be flipped to their dismounted side which reflects the reduced movement rate of 8, negating the need to mark them with Dismount markers (which are provided for both sides for those players wishing to use them). Yellow Movement Factors for the Germans or White Movement Factors for the Soviets indicate units which have dismounted.

Markers:

Additional markers have been included (eg Opportunity Fired, Indirect Fired, etc, 88mm FLAK IF, No Move, No Fire, No Spot, Soviet Ammo Saved, etc) in Tray boxes. Please review marker flip definitions.

Markers associated with GE Revealed Marker and SU Revealed Marker have been changed to German and Soviet respectively. Examples of these markers have been place in the Revealed Mines box of the Tray.

Balka counter can be rotated (30 deg at a time) to point the arrow toward the indicated Balka.

Scenarios

Eleven files are included:

Scenario 1 The Grain Elevator
Scenario 2 The Guards Counterattack
Scenario 1-2 Combined

Scenario 5 The Orlovka Pocket
Scenario 4-5 Combined
Scenario 6 The Tractor Factory
Scenario 7 Siege of Spartakovka

Scenario Setup:

On map units have been placed on their respective setup lines or areas. Players must refer to the Scenario Setup charts for specific information regarding unit placement.

Miscellaneous Army and Corps level units not attached to formations are grouped separately and placed outside the setup areas for the Germans, and in the Volga River for the Soviets.

Formation Setup Lines and/or Scenario Boundary Lines can be turned off once initial setup is complete (View \ Hex Lines or Hex Sides).

Hidden Units:

Hidden units have been fully implemented in all scenarios. Hidden units are visible on map, but appear as generic Balkan Cross or Red Star counters.

Credits:

The SoS was designed by Dana Lombardy with David Parham and later Art Lupinacci. The ADC2 module was created by Nick Bell and John Kincaid from art and graphics by Joe Youst and Art Lupinacci. The VASSAL importer was developed by Michael Kiefte.

I have received written permission from Dana Lombardy, the sole copright owner, to provide the VASSAL module for free download.
