2022-08-26 Update - Commands & Colors Ancients v4.2

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 0.00 (0 Votes)

Commands & Colors: Ancients 6 module version 4.2 is now available for download.

The update brings more scenarios and new gameplay features.

What’s New ?

100+ pre-set scenarios added.
New and improved Help resources and player aids.
Toolbar and hotkey controls expanded, including one touch end turn and combat commands.
Draw and End Turn actions can be completed by either side, aiding PBEM.
Click on blocks to order and mark for combat.
On screen player tags and command size display.
Several features can be tailored to personal preference.
Block command menus de-cluttered once a game starts.
CDG Solo System (join a game as Solitaire).
See release notes 3 for more.

The module is considerably larger than previous versions due to more scenarios and functionality. Log files are typically 500Kb+ in size which may be a consideration if saving many log files on a free cloud service. The basics of game play will be familiar to users of earlier versions and the module’s Help menu includes further guidance.

Compatibility
Not backward compatible with earlier versions, except for reading v4 log files and watching games.
Requires Vassal v3.6.7 or later.
Block view preference (Icons or Number) will not persist until Vassal v3.6.8.
