Someone's dread and darlin' boy has fallen on his saber"

Okay I updated my GitHub site with the new DTO maps, a few missing extensions and maps, and a new set of empty folders and all the current maps in both the "vasl" format (no extension) and as a image file for reference (look under the boards directory for a folder called images). Also, included are all the overlays.
So in short these are all the version 5 maps, overlays, and HASL maps as well as all the TPP stuff and extensions. If you follow this link in the center of the screen are two links (ZIP and TGZ) which you can then download to your machine and use for VASL.

I am really into Version Control and I just love GitHub, it's totally awesome, makes CSV/SVN feel like the difference between say MS Word and Notpad. So I created a GitHub repo for all the maps and extensions. For ease of use I also created a nice GitHub Page and you can download it as a zip or tgz file (contains all the files up-to-date).
You can find the link here:
I hope this helps those out using VASL to play

Here's some screenies of my last sandbox fight, what I like to call The Battle of Ol' McDonald's Farm. This fight took place on a fictional map ('Alpine') - hence, the name. Other details: it was a division vs division fight, with me taking the command of Edmund L.Dana's Second Brigade for the Federals. Here's what happened....
[NOTICE: because the sprite-based
