Playing on Vassal
Hello, I tried a game with my brother on vassal, using a module for another game that I modified. IRL gameis not possible at the moment. It was interesting and pretty easy to use. So, does someone knows if and when the module dedicated to bushido will be released ? Thank you

Due to how much traction the TableTop Simulator mod has it seems unlike that they continued development of the Vassal mod. Can't say for sure of course.

Anyway, come play Bushido on TTS with us now instead of waiting for a potential future Vassal mod.

I'm still working on the VASSAL mod. It is not a nice program to work with, honestly, but should be able to release a limited version soon. Then need help adding things to the game.

Nice. If you need help, I can take a look. I dabbled with it to modify the module of another skirmish game. Thanks for the work, as you say, it is not so nice to create a mod with it but the tools you can integrate are nice. Have you looked at other module to get inspiration ?

That'd be great! I started by looking at Guild Ball and Malifaux, plus some demo stuff.

You may want to check the module for warmachine. It use the same type of base as Bushido, with the front arc, and have picture for half round aura. The charge lane for model is pretty nice as well.

I've implemented those things, but will check out the charge lane thing.

Hello again. Are you the one who made available a vassal module for bushido on Facebook (Bushido the game group) ? or are you both creating a different one ?

That's me, yes. Lots still to do, and it won't happen quickly.

Nice. I was just checking in the case two different people were working on it. And great work by the way !

Thank you! I really don't know what I'm doing and figuring it out as I go!

The next task is to implement scenario choice. Then sharing Photoshop files for the models & cards art, and enlisting helpers to add factions.
