Hi all,

War in the Pacific (second edition) is one of those monster games that's almost impossible to set up and play. Finding a large room that you can set aside for a year is tough enough. Then there's all the counter trays / side maps and information sheets that you need to have handy. However, none of this would be a problem if the game had a VASSAL module. All the maps,

I want to play this game pretty badly, so me and my regular online opponent are going to make a VASSAL module for it. Decision Games doesn't support public VASSAL modules, but I'm doing it for personal use. This will be a slow and steady process, will probably take all summer, but the end result is that we'll actually be able to play this game!

If anyone else is interested in helping out, and reaping the rewards of a personal-use WitP VASSAL Module, please send me an email.

Thanks!

Do you know if there is a Cyberboard module for this game? i ahve the hardcopy and have been able to play campaigns within it, but to my thinking a Cyberboard module is they way to go. I have never gotten into/liked Vassal.

Some folks like to game on non-Windows computers, and others like live play. Cyberboard is not ideal for either of those situations.

I would much prefer a vassal version. My opinion, vassal is easier to use, easier to learn, and allows both PBEM, and live play. I'll use cyberboard if my opponent insists, but I usually push vassal (with live play, and skype voice).

I've been working on a module for the past several months, but could really use some help upgrading the SPI maps to the DG version. Is there anyone with some graphics skills willing to help?

I would be very much interested in a VASSAL module for this one; I have but will never play it physically - too much space for too long a time to keep up.

I could spare about 5-8 hours a week to do this.

Just wanted to post an update - DG graciously provided us w/ the graphics and we are in the process of rebuilding the mod.

Allied OOB is almost complete w/ replacement.

The artwork is a beauty --





We also have a play-test of the Coral Sea w/ screenshots to be used in a future AAR.

Anyways - stop over and say aloha!

Digital maps have been incorporated.

Readjusting/fabricating displays due to the larger counter size.

The mod looks gorgeous...

Aloha - here's a quick screenshot from our Coral Sea scenario w/ the upgraded mod @ zoom level 60%.

- 1st Naval Phase - Japan's TF has just left Rabaul and is being searched from PM and Cookstown - medium and long range, respectively. The TF has been spotted...

Ignore the misspelled Rabaul base label
