Hi Vassal Jedi Masters,
I’m a VASSAL beginner who is already in love with this tool. Why didn’t I discover it years ago? Gah!
Technical question: In my game, my main board is a Rectangular Grid. Its a conquest game, so players battle to control key rectangles. I’ve noticed that when I put game pieces on the board, the pieces are automatically placed in the center of their respective rectangle. That’s great for most of my pieces.
But I also have a small Control Marker piece to indicate which player controls which rectangle. When I drop the Control Marker onto a grid rectangle, its so much smaller than the other units, and looks funny.
Is there a way to specify that this Control Marker piece should always be placed to the upper left or lower right of a rectangle (not placed in the center by default) ?
Or - going for broke here - can someone advise on a better way to indicate which player controls a rectangle? Like, each player could have a signature color (Red/Blue/Green/Orange/etc.) When a player captures a rectangle, could they click on that rectangle and toggle it to a hue that matches their color? I’m open to any advice.
