I was wondering if it would be possible/allowed to play a game following the TI4 rules, using the TI3 vassal module.

It might be doable I think, but some items would be hard get done and might be confusing.
I wrote down all the things and ordered them from easy to fix to hard :

Easy to manage
Rae Sheets : write down the exact race sheets in a rules thread, just use the module version for the graphic
Trade Goods : use PCTG for commodities, TG as usual
Strategy Cards : write down the exact race sheets in a rules thread, just use the module version for the graphic


Medium to manage
Missing Secret Objectives : manage secret objectives by forum.
Public Objectives : trim the objectives deck


Very Annoying
Planet tiles / cards : TI4 uses all the systems of vanilla TI3, with apart from two systems the exact same resource/influence values. However all technology bonuses have been replaced.
Action / Political cards : Trim the existing deck as well as possible. Some AC/PC will be missing, too bad
Technology cards : this will be annoying, no idea yet how to manage


Conclusion : why hasn't anyone started working on a web based TI4 yet? :P

It will definitely be allowed but of course the same restriction for posting AC and PC text applies as for TI3. I agree that it should be possible to do this with the TI3 module for now.

I really wish I had the time for this. I'm curious what the status of ti3.io is. It shouldn't be too hard to make a web app for playing both TI3 and TI4 at the same time. The differences really come down to a few settings and loading different asset files and deck lists.

A Vassal extension for the missing SO/AC/PC cards would not be very difficult to make. We do it for the Shattered Ascension extension. I could potentially do it, but I don't have TI4, so I would not know which cards to add (would need full text for public/secret objectives and card titles and counts for ACs and PCs).

Adding any planetary systems would be possible as well. It requires graphics to be made/imported though, and I definitely don't have time for that.

I agree with the above that a web module would be a better long term solution though!
