It does give the game a bit more wargamey flavor instead of A&A or Starwarsy flavor. Just let me know what units you want (and if there are different sizes, for example Death Trooper brigades vs. Storm Trooper Divisions also let me know. Also which colors you'd like.
I'm running Mac and was able to get my map Battle for River City up and running with Veq's new utilities that come with 1_6_1_3. I'm in the middle of playtesting version 0.2 and won't release for the community until 0.4 or 0.5 but as a next project I'd love to help you with this Edwin if you're up for getting it going again.
