Hi, Im about to try my hand at Gimp and doing up a small map. Ive got Gimp and the manual, where do I find the terrain libraries? The links for those are dead ends as is most of the book of mapmaking lol. The hexgrids and colour palette look to be the more critical needs.

Setting up J070 (Board 36, overlay 1), some of the 'marsh' did not transform into 'swamp', but some did.

V9, FF6 did not.

Using VASL 6.4.1b2, PTO transformations "Bamboo", "Palm Trees" and "Swamp next to jungle" option check boxes.
I'll take a look at this Will.

Will I found some errors with the bd36 swamp transformations. FF6 was one of them. I've made the corrections and version 6.3 of bd36 should be available in the next day or so for download. Once I get the new bd36 posted, VASL will download it automatically for you the next time you use bd36.

V9 will not transform as it's on an overlay. If you haven't played your game yet, I can make a scenario specific overlay for you so that V9 will show as swamp. That'll take a few more days but just let me know if this is something you'd like me to do. Glad to do it.

edit: I just checked and bd36 v6.3 is available for download.

For the first, thanks much. For the second, that is "above and beyond" IMHO and no need. People like me can live with that rather than making a lot of work for just one scenario. It is a pretty good scenario for those who might find this in a future search. (J070: Save your tanks for big VP at the end as the Japanese and take your time unlike what I did).

I got pinged a little while ago that Bounding Fire was missing VASL files for it's Deluxe boards BF1 and BF2. I've created those and have them in the hands of the map elves as this is being written for vaslization. My understanding is BF1 is done and I've provided the information to finish up BF2. Hopefully we'll have those out in the download section of vasl.info and boundingfire.com soon.

Excellent service, thanks Rick.
