The big square around my pieces is driving me bananas

Hi there,

By default Vassal puts a large square around my pieces when they are selected. Having trouble with collisions leading to unwanted stacking and other selecting issues.

Hoping someone can point me in a direction (make the square smaller somehow?) that solves this without removing the ability to stack.

Thanks for taking the time!

Go to your Map properties (double-click on the map name or right-click and select Properties). About halfway down are the options “Border color for selected counters” and “Border thickness for selected counters”.

You might want to use the Non-Rectangular trait. Give it an image of the same piece and the “Large Square” will reduce to the shape of the piece itself.


Thanks marktb1961 and jrwatts. Both of your suggestions in combination did the trick! Much obliged.
