First playtest was held today, and the game works, but using VASSAL takes some practice. More playtesting/ practice games will be announced at some point, for now going to work on adding more ships which can take some time and may cause issues if the versions don't match so will send out a new copy of the module at that point

Vassal is a method for playing board games online. You know why I am interested in this.

Ok, replied to your message on steam, and will see if we can get a playtester tag on the discord so can use one ping when asking if people would like to play. And so that not spamming @ everyone

Ok so VASSAL is a downloadable program designed to work with tabletop and board games. There are a number of wargame modules out there, and frankly expect, if not already made, there to be a Battletech one as know a few people interested in playing it. With the SITS one I have it set up so it has a hex map for the ships and midpoint/end of turn markers, and then a board on the side of each player (it can be an issues scrolling and trying to sort out the mulitple sheets in the private window, but can't do much about it beyond maybe making a second window and not sure how it would allow selecting on both) that handles the ship SSD, AVID, and the Salvo and defense cards.

I've added SITS Playtester on our Discord as a role - let me know if anyone wants in - it's as easy as joining our TRMN Gaming server, and shooting me a message. It'll make it super-easy for Commander Alex Shaffer to reach out to you, whenever a game/playtest is happening!

So an update here, currently about 50-60% done with ships, need to add the piece art for some of them, and finish zoning the rest of the SSD. Currently all RMN ships aside from the LAC are done, working on PN, and then will release the new version for playing. After that will be the IAN and SN, with the LACs, and the Neutral/Pirate ones all which need the piece art.
