CliffsNotes (the TL;DR version)

  • 2 more lists (‘worldsdemo1’ and ‘worldsdemo2’) can be played from the autospawn (these 2.0 lists were demoed at Worlds back in May 2018)
  • some glitches fixed in the other 2.0 lists (‘tcdemo1’ and ‘tcdemo2’) that were present in module versions 8.0.8 and 8.0.9
  • the first edition TIE Reaper gets a small section in Pieces/Imperial to get spawnable an ordered dial and an ordered maneuver strip
  • Some background work done for new upcoming 2.0 features (medium and large decloak repositions)

How to proxy 2.0 lists right now

The instructions on how to spawn 2.0 lists are included in the autospawn window. It features which lists are available with which version of the vassal module:

As you can see, if you use type ‘tcdemo1’, ‘tcdemo2′, worldsdemo1’ or ‘worldsdemo2’ (without single quotes) in the text box at the bottom, it’ll spawn those demo lists in your player window. It assumes you’re already in a game room, with a game started up with File Menu/New Game and that you are indeed a specific player of that game (ie Player 1).

Here’s tcdemo1 (rebels) vs tcdemo2 (empire) in action

Here’s worldsdemo1 (empire) vs worldsdemo2 (scum) in action:

This small guide was posted in several places on the web and can help you get started for 2.0 play on vassal.

Spawning a 2.0 damage deck:

  • it’s been added a few module versions ago. It features a card design by user @Ablazoned. Check it out!

Using 2.0 tokens:

  • They can be spawned from the Pieces Window, 2.0 Stuff tab (they are not all there just yet)

Reading up on all these new card effects:

  • It’s been added a few modules ago and integrates information found on the web in some community data repos. Select a card (placeholder) and do CTRL-Q to see its text in the chat window

Flipping Servomotor S-Foils or Pivot Wing:

  • Just like in 1.0: on the ship itself, use ALT-U. The ship graphic changes to reflect their wing mode

90 degree and 180 degree rotations (Pivot Wing):

  • Just like in 1.0, you can do a 180 degree rotation without moving your ship’s position by doing CTRL-U (U for U-Turn)
  • Newly added: 90 degree rotations can be done with Alt-Left Arrow and Alt-Right Arrow

Using the bullseye arc (for Crack Shot):

  • Ctrl-X toggles the arc graphic
  • Ctrl-Shift-X gives you firing options inside that arc

Marking a charge token as spent:

  • Select it and toggle it between active/spent with Ctrl-F

Using the Y-Wing single turret (ion cannon turret):

It’s basically used like a lancer-class mobile turret, so:

  • Alt-M rotates the turret indicator clockwise
  • Alt-Shift-M rotates it counter-clockwise
  • Alt-F toggles the single turret arc graphic
  • Alt-Shift-F gives you a lancer-class autorange firing options (not ideal, since it should not include the front arc if the single turret is pointing elsewhere,  but that refinement is for another day)

You may find it useful to peruse this big community driven 2.0 Changes document floating on the web, which contain pictures of the squads taken by varios members of the community. The squads are near the bottom of the document, but you can navigate to them from around page 2 in the table of contents.

  • Hard coded autospawn 2.0 list tcdemo1:

      • J: centered
      • Ctrl-Shift-9: as backward as possible
