Gaming on Tabletop Simulator

Coincidentally, just saw a GMT designer of all people throw a tantrum on CSW because the VASSAL module was missing some charts for the game he was trying to play ( CONFEDERATE RAILS from ATO). While I appreciate self contained modules, I totally respect those that require ownership of the game.

Wanted to make it, but there's been a lot of things going sideways at work and I've been pulling some evenings and nights. Maybe next week.
(Still on for JC on Saturday, though.)
Any interest in a Wednesday evening game of Pax 2nd or Root?
7pm Pacific is best for me but I can do earlier.
I'd like to do another John Company on this coming Saturday. But I know the crew of Not Sure, Mezike and I, if anyone else is interested, would love to at least get 4 in our next game to do the intro scenario again. So let me know if there's anyone who would like to play, we can teach, and if Saturday late morning/afternoon is not good I can move it around to suit.
After playing Terraforming Mars I have a huge hankering to play Argent: The Consortium. There's a Tabletop Simulator module that looks promising. Any interest in learning or playing that?
Only the base game is available on tabletop simulator and it's a little ugly. There's a pay module where the designer gets money on tabletopia so some day I may buy that to try to support the official mod.
