Air Pack for Online? Sun, 26 January 2014 15:29
Hello, I've asked this question about a year and a half ago. Are we any closer to having the Air Pack added to online play or is this just a pipe dream?

DOW hasn't made any changes to M-Online in something like a year and a half or two years. (About 17 scenarios were added a year ago, but they didn't require any additional functionality to be programmed.) During that time, they've been focusing their limited programming resources on some of their other games.

I wouldn't expect to see Air Rules in M-Online in the near future. There are a lot of other things that would be much simpler for them to implement.

If you want to play online with Air Rules, that's available on Vassal. www.vassalengine.org All the expansions are available there, but as in the actual boardgame, there's no automatic rule enforcement. You have to [dramatic pause] actually know the rules yourself. (The summary cards are available.)

Well, I do know the rules. But, the vassal system is very cumbersome. It's too bad the air pack is not being considered for online play.

Air rules would be great but would rather see bug fixes and some of the other add on like MG's, Mortars, Half-tracks etc.

I also find vassal cumbersome..

To be clear, I have no information on what DoW may or may not be planning. That was just my guess (though Air Pack is out of print, and I've noticed they haven't been doing much with Air Rules in recent expansions).

Personally, I like both Memoir Online and Vassal a lot. To me, they each have their great strengths. I'm happy that I get to play some in each environment.

But I will try Vassal again.
Sam I just reinstalled it and added the M44 Module thanks to your videos which were a big help.

Now I have to remember how to play.
