I applied the mod. I had a bit of confusion there, because following your instructions at the Slitherine Forum
To use it, unzip the archive file in the folder "Documents\My Games\Order of Battle-Pacific\Mods" of your computer.
I did the following:
Placed the OoB-Boardgame.zip file in the Mods folder.
Used the Windows 7 Extract All... function to unzip the file in place. I chose the suggested default destination: C:\Users\Robert\Documents\My Games\Order of Battle - Pacific\Mods\OoB-Boardgame
Documents\My Games\Order of Battle-Pacific\Mods\OoB-Boardgame\OoB - Boardgame
that is, your mod folder nested one level too deep. (And note the difference in spaces in the names.) At game's launch, there was no option to select your mod, and the game display came up with the "toy soldiers" look as usual.
To fix this, I had to cut-and-paste the child OoB - Boardgame folder up one level -- i.e., move the child folder into the Mods folder. Then on game launch, indeed I was prompted to select your mod, else the game default setup.
You might want to doublecheck the packaging of your mod, else word the instructions more carefully. (It might also depend on how the end user "unzips" the file. Different unzipping mechanisms give different results, apparently.) You need to clarify that, however you get there, the OoB - Boardgame folder needs to be right there in Mods.
Is it possible that others have tried your mod, failed, given up in frustration?
Nice splash screens, BTW. <thumbs up>
There are issues with that mod that only the devs can fix, it seems.
Facing issues? Upside down counters?
So, yes, at scenario start, the orientation of the counters is kind of screwy. They certainly don't face all in an up position. In the tutorial, all counters were initially facing westward. Strange, because the action will be to the east. (At the Slitherine Forum, the sample screenshot shows ships upside down initially.)
[edit: I discovered the Classic Unit Facings option, toggling it off to Never. This removed the irritant of, at move's end, units reorienting themselves either to the east or to the west.]
Your mod is quite nice. Thank you! Removes a major impediment to my enjoying the game. I'll give it a more serious try now.
