This thread serves as the reference point for all things regarding the VASL Overlay Extension.

Update September 2020: Version 2.03 has gone active.

Version 2.03 adds some SSOs for G16 and AP111.

You can get it here:


(The link above says scenarios but it takes you to the right place.)

Also, be sure to check out the HTML placeholder instructions in the help file. I think this feature is pretty cool. It shows you how to add a border around your Singling map but there's no limit to what you can do with it. It's another way to import html content into your game.

Please post corrections/requests/whatever to this topic or email me.

Enjoy your games!

Updated to v2.02. Get it from the downloads page:

http://vasl.info/extensions.htm

To expand on the update notes: the addition of a SSO location within the extension will allow me to respond more quickly and efficiently to user requests. I get many user requests for SSOs that were not available previously.

For example, I recently updated the bd25 SSO for A23 Contest in the Clouds. Making it available in the Overlay Extension was a quick way to get it to the hands of the guys playing this unique scenario.

Interesting ... I've been playing HG15 "King Darges" and we were finding that the overlay BFP C1 (in the Bounding Fire section) seemed to have some sort of adverse effect on the LOS string. No matter how hard we tried we couldn't get the LOS string to actually hit the centre dot in any of the hexes, it was always off by a small amount which meant on some close LOS we were just taking a "best guess".

Doing the same LOS checks using the new version of the extension the strings seem to be centring just fine. Cool!

This was the exact same problem when the RO map was increased to 120% due to in part to my request but after while
it just went away. So glad its fixed as it was real frustrating !

The RO 120 is a real Godsend btw

Big shout out to Al here.

Asked a question about the escarpment overlay because I was getting ready to play A23. Traded some emails and Al had something in action in about a week. Didn't have to do that but he did.

Nice job he did too, right down to foot bridges, tracks and a nice clear representation of inherent terrain woods. Highly recommend the scenario, its definitely something different.

Al is the link to something different than what I have and do I need to update to this finalized version?

I'll repeat here something that could go into the drag overlays in the wall hedge tab would be cliffs.

The link takes you to v2.02 of the Overlay extension. If you have that, you’re good to go for playing A23.

Thanks for the shout out 😀

Hi,

This was a request a while ago for a bigger RO map which looked dandy. Unfortunately the laptop that I had the 120% overlays
had a a hardware failure. So this is UNLIKELY to be on any mdx etc. So was a request to send me the 120% overlays for RO.

to; ef2020@outlook.com

Am about to use so this is like an early Xmas. In fact I wish everyone an early Xmas one way or another..
