Sure Brant.  I made several modules a few years back and then hadn't messed with it at all until fairly recently so most of the newer enhancements are a bit beyond me at this point.  However, if you needed a simple but functional module for playtesting (that could later be built upon), then sure, I could give you a hand.

 Gary...:o

Man, I would love to have such an eASLRB. Hiimori and I consider getting back into ASL after a longer break and such a searchable eRB would help a lot of course...

Regarding the official MMP eASLRB...I just say 'Project Up Front 2000'  :P

Does ZunTsu enforce the rules, or is it just another type of Vassal/Cyberboard?

It's another VASSAL/CB but I think that it has the slickest way of operating and with controls that are more like a computer game (no scroll bars that you have to use, you can zoom and pan rather easily).  Plus, it's super easy to make a gamebox for.  Worth a look in my opinion!

I have this, but I will be playing for the first time next week on Vassal. I am still reading the rules. I am feigning for the Pacific as of late.

If your interested in Pacific WW2 carrier battles,you may want to check out the free online game Fighting Flattops.
I haven't played it in a while because my gaming interest is now East Front WW2,but the game was fun and I even designed a few hypothetical what if campaigns for he game.

It's turned based against a human opponent and based roughly on the game Flattop by Avalon Hill.

These counters aren't centered, which kind of sucks.

Yeah. That's a crappy print job.

If the offset bothers you, there are a number of versions of print and play upgrade counters out there on the interwebs. Plus a cool upgrade of the map.

Would that be Gary's upgrade you're talking about?

I think that's what he's referring to. I d/l'd the VASSL module today and took a brief look - it's sharp!

There's 780 flippin' counters in this game! I only just got done with the US fleet just now...sigh.
