#Override VASSAL & How to Play

Greetings friends!

So on the request of a friend of mine, last night I created a Vassal Module for Override which can be found HERE.

I say created; what I actually did was take an existing Infinity module and tear out a chunk of stuff, replace it's D20 system with a D6 and rename some of the Units.

Eventually I hope to expand this with actual Unit artwork from Override, as well as my own splash screen and maps, but for now this will do.

What I hope to use this for is to create some "How to Play" videos which I can host on my YouTube Channel. In the meantime however I need to get used in how to use Vassal, find out what is missing from the module that needs to be added, and see if there is a way of adding the ability to rename units ingame (so you would have 3 of the same icon all representing say; Hydan Gang Members, but you could rename them the Bill, Bob & Jack).
- Another option is to look at the roster itself. Currently you can only recruit up to models; 8 Units and a single Auxiliary. I might be able to get around by using Unit 1, Unit 2 etc and leave players checking with the opponent. Unsure, but I can play around and test.

If any of you are interested in trying this out with me let me know via the usual channels (Twitter: @doctorloxley and Email: and I'll see what we can arrange.


I must say however; things are starting to move awfully fast! At this rate the game will be entering beta before I know it, and that scares me.

Until next time; stay safe and be excellent to each other!

- Your friendly neighbourhood Doctor Loxley

  1. Update: Apparently you can rename units in the Malifaux module, so I'll be downloading that, locating the rename coding and inserting that into Override
