Fixed number of pieces.

I’m trying to work on a Vassal module and need the answer to what is probably a very simple question. What I need is to have a fixed number of a particular piece. Ideally they would all be in the tray seperately (so if I have 16 pieces and 5 are on the board then the tray would have 11) or alternatively have a number to show how many are remaining. Is this possible?

The standard way to do this is to set up a separate map window as a
holding area. Then create the pieces that you need to have for your
game and put them in the holding area. Make a save-game. Then hide
the units palette so no more units can be created when playing the game.

Cheers. I’ll try to get that working. Half experimenting at the moment.
