I’m very much new to the vassal scene and I would love to learn more about module creation. I was wondering if there was a module that had some similiaritites of a game I am trying to design. It needs to be a hexagon based main map with the ability to assign traits/counters to each hex on the map. Basically I want to put various counters on the hex to indicate the presence and quantity of 3 different materials. By clicking on the counter, the material quantity is decremented and the current player’s inventory is incremented.
I would like to ask a question about automating the initial game state of a game I am designing in Vassal. I have a 6x6 grid of hexagons. What I would like to happen at the click of a button:
Randomly select one of the 36 hexagons that constitute the main map. Increment a counter associated with that hex cell by 2. Here’s the kicker: Increment the counters on all adjacent hex cells by 1.
So somehow I need to link a given cell to all its neighbors and have a trigger present so if a given hex is choosen and its counter is incremented by 2, then all associated neighbor hexes counters are incremented too by 1.
If there is a game module that incorporates what am I describing please point me to it and I will tweak it as I need. If there isn’t a game module like this, is what I am describing possible? If yes, could a veteran module designer please give me some pointers? I can share the work I have done so far.
Thanks so much for your time,
