Vance, they are in scenario book, but missing from the Vassal map. I have tried to find out how to edit the map, but can't see how it opens despite having looked at some tutorials.

Send me the name of the module and a pic of the correct map and I’ll see what I can do.

OK, thanks.

Its the 'Fleurus' Scenario (obviously from Vol I - 'Dawn of an Era') and the hills are missing from the following hex numbers.

H3, F6, H6

I just loaded up ver. 1.3 of the module.

If you click the Counters menu, then select the Terrain tab you will see hills. (see attached pic below)

You can drag these to any hex on the map. Because they are terrain they will not be picked up by a normal left click when on the map. You will need to hold down the Shift key and left click the hill to select it.

Hope that helps.

OK, did that, so thanks, Vance. Is there any way I can edit the module to make the change permanent, or is that something that only the mod creator can do?

Obviously, I could add the terrain and then save the game itself, I guess.

You would have to go in and make the change to the setup for that scenario. I've not done setups but let me poke around and see what I can do.

Email coming. New mod. Email should have Google drive link.

The attached pic is from the VASSAL manual on pre-defined setups. Pretty simple actually, once you find it in the manual  :nerd:.

I'm just a hack compared to some out there.
Glad it works for you.
