Yes, on my "to do" list! The existing module is screaming for an update and I'd love to use these graphics for it.  Not to toot my own horn (careful!) but the printed graphics look sweeeet and I think that it would work great for the VASSAL module as well.

GJK will you update the Vassal module with the new kit graphics?

 :bd:


He lives! The module has been updated with all new graphics (v2.0): http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/Module:Carrier


Let me know if anybody finds any issues or has any suggestions!

Just noticed this thread because I'm currently on the lookout for another VG title, Vietnam 1965-1975.  It sounds like I need to go to Gen-con.

and just some general advice, or at the very least my humble opinion.  Unless you're on the verge of death due to starvation don't sell your unboxed unpunched game for 100 bucks.  It's not worth it.  Now if someone is willing to give you a grand or more for it then you might consider it. 
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

Did someone sell an unpunched copy of Vietnam 1965-75 for $100 recently?

Ive been thinking for the last couple of months that I need to reacquire this game (owned it twice before!). Its so good. Id be satisfied with a punched copy though. All I really need is the rule book in decent shape. Id play it on Vassal.

Last time I looked, prices were reasonable on EBay.
Numbers 31:17-18
"Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."

Psalm 137:9
"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."

I recently saw some copies being sold on eBay for under 150.  Both copies I saw for sale were unpunched and one was even still in shrinkwrap.  I just can't bring myself to buy anything off of eBay because of all the horror stories I've heard.

I actually did sell it.  To be honest, with the upgrade kit that I made (and have printed and played on), I couldn't ever go back to playing on the original components and with PDF's of all of my materials, I'm always just a reprint away from having another copy of the game.

I have purchased one, single thing off of E-Bay in my life, a copy of Tokyo Express. After 30 full days, I still didn't have the game, and it was the very last day to give input. This is after MANY emails to the seller. So..I left a bad review. I got SMOKED with a bad review by the seller. He had a 91% rating for 2000+  sells, I had a ZERO percent rating after one purchase. I received the game two weeks later. SMH...

How much is an unpunched copy worth?  Asking for....a friend...   :hide:
