This might be a duplicate thread but I couldn’t find it.

Boards...finished (thank you Tuomo!)
Chinese counters...finished (thank you Jackson!)
South Korean counters...finished
Commonwealth counters...almost finished (thank you Spencer!)
US counters...I’m working these now, about 1/4 finished
Informational counters...same as US counters
Adding above counters to the core VASL module...not started yet but I am volunteering to take this on. It’ll be a learning curve for me. You may see KFW as a temporary extension before a core addition.

DRAFT version is released. Archived and current versions here:

I appreciate the appreciation guys. I'm just one cog in the wheel. Besides the aforementioned Tuomo, Jackson, and Spencer, there's Ken, Brian, Zoltan, Sam, Doug, David and Tim. I hope I'm not forgetting anybody. Forgive my feeble mind if I did. While not everyone of these guys are working directly on KFW, they are indispensable to me and I appreciate their patient advice and direction as I sail the VASL waters while trying not to sink the VASL ship. Thanks guys!

Not trying to generate “Like” bait...just an update...

Counters are 97.48% done. Starting to organize layout for inclusion in core VASL. Implementing this module into VASL will be another time consuming undertaking but it’s one I’m committed to so thanks for your continued patience.

Working hard on the extension. With the help of Zoltan and BK I've made some breakthroughs so I am making progress. Getting a little hung up on searchlights and then I realized that only one KFW scenario has a searchlight? And even it's turret mounted. So I'm not too concerned just yet about Searchlight trucks and GMSL. However, how important is it to record the SL covered arc when the searchlight is switched off? Seems to me that practically speaking when a SL is switched on, it can just choose a ca so tracking it's ca while switched off or malfunctioned is not important. True?

Here's some teaser art. You wouldn't believe how satisfying it is to finally get the little "?" to appear on concealed units. I live a shallow life :). And the SK '44 FB is a bonus.

IMHO, Searchlights will be an "edge corner case", where very few scenarios will be ever made or played with them. Don't sweat it, and call what you got good enough.

Though it would be cool to see their effect with the 'Night' function of VASL turned on. Probably not easy to program.

Hell yeah, that would be way cool to see that on VASL! Probably not worth the effort but it would be cool to see the results.
