adding counters

Hi. I’m new to Vassal. I’d like to add some new counters to an existing module. Any suggestions as to how I do that? Is it possible to save my modification as an extension?

No expert, but I’ve dabbled in modding some. Not familiar with making extensions yet, but I have planned to learn eventually. I think there is a tutorial somewhere. I add counters by making the image first. Exporting all the images from the existing module with winrar or similar programs gives a good base that you can play with. After you’ve made the images you need for your counter, open the module with winrar to import them. afterwards, open vassal to edit the module. The easiest way to make a new counter is then to copy an existing counter that has the characteristics you want, so you don’t have to mess with prototypes on your first try, and then exchange the images for that counter with the ones you made. Remember to rename the counter too. Which module are you looking at?
