VaS on Armybuilder

Postby Scuzzlebutt142 » Tue Aug 14, 2007 12:10 pm

I got bored the other day, so started making armybuilder files for VaS. If anyones interested, you can download them here. Only Kriegsmarine and Royal Navy so far, sorry.

http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/~colefam/VaS%200.1.ab

I also threw them up on the Armybuilder forums, so hopefully I will get the ability to add these to the auto-update at some point.

Its all in there except the Narrow seas stuff. If you're trying to use the Z plan ships for the Kriegsmarine, you have to activate it in the roster options.

i've seen the ships stats. in a battle you'll be saying "ciao duilio" very quickly so it seems an appropriate typo :wink:

Just downloaded the VaS armybuilder files. You rock dude! :)

One thing I noticed. The files show the North Carolina class battleship as having a 5+ armor value. (Which IS what it says in the book, admittedly.)

Wasn't that on the list of errata (should be 6+), or am I misremembering.

Thanks! You going to update it with OOB in a few months? ;)

Had a look in the FAQ, doesn't say anything there about changes to the North Carolina. If you know where this change is, I'll check it and update it.

And yes, I will update it with OoB, but there will be one issue. Living on the other side of the world, and going by Mongooses previous shipping times to people I know here, it will be March by the time that I get it. If I'm lucky. :(

Yeah, I checked myself and didn't see any reference to it either. Maybe I'm just making it up.

Too bad they charge $$$ for it.

I'll stick with player-supported type tools...Excels, or other avenues of gaming support than a pay-for type thing

Programmers gotta eat too.

I already had it for another game anyway. Probably only use it for actually BUILDING the lists though as I prefer some of the stat cards available online.

Its a nice tool if you do several different wargames, I think I use it for 5 different game systems.

I've been writing datafiles for it for LotR for many years now, so I did VaS cause I was bored.
