So, I've downloaded the module for X-Wing on Vassal…but I can't figure out how to load the expansions, once downloaded. Any suggestions? Thanks!

 Open Vassal, then click 'open module', then navigate to the location of your module (a folder called 'Vassal Modules' is a good idea) and select it. Once that's done, Vassal will remember the path for next time and you'll see X-Wing in the 'module library' window straight away. 

Oh, oops, you're talking about expansions…

In the same folder where your X-Wing module is, make a folder with the exact same name as the X-Wing module, followed by "_ext" (without the '.vmod' part). Vassal may already have made this folder for you, I don't remember if it does that. Then, put your expansions in there.

After that, the name of your module in the module library window should have an arrow next to it. Click it, and the names of the expansions appear below. Right click on each, and select 'activate'. In this way, you can choose which expansions you want to use.

Hope that helps!

 There is an easier way, now that Vassal has a friendly user interface.

When you open Vassal, you'll see a list of all your mods. Right click on the X-wing mod and select "Add Extension." A window will pop up for you to navigate to the location where you saved your extension files. Click OK when you've selected one of the files and the program will automatically make the appropriate extension folder in the proper location and move the extension you selected to that new folder. Pretty swell.

In the past, I have had an issue with adding extensions if the user doesn't have "Administrative Access".  VASSAL isn't able to create the necessary folder to store the extensions in.  This can be fixed by creating the folder yourself, of right-clicking VASSAL and choosing "Run as Administrator".

Sounds as though you didn't have this problem, but I just wanted to throw it in here as a possibility in case someone does.  =)
