Thanks for the fast answer! Anyhow it seems I need to read the rule again. Let's see:
6.2.2.Line of Sight along slopes applies when the two hexes are at different heights. LOS may only be traced along slopes if the higher of the two units is in a crest hex. If the higher unit does not occupy a crest there is no LOS. For a unit to be considered in “crest” status, the LOS in question must cross the crest in the unit’s own hex.
This is quite clear for me: LOS for A908-A906; no LOS for A909-A906CORRECT
Blind hexes and slope LOS: Certain types of terrain block LOS downslope only in the hex directly behind them (tracing from the spotting hex). Such hexes are woods, light woods, dispersed buildings and built-up area hexes
I read the hex
as singular, so my understanding is no LOS for A1114-A912; but LOS for A1114-A911. Right?NO YOU DONT HAVE LOS TO NONE OF THE 2 HEXES BECOUSE YOU ARE A LEVEL 2 HILL AND THE WOODS AT A1113 LEVEL 1 HILL TURN THE HEXAGON ON A LEVEL 2
(although these may not block slope LOS under conditions described below).
I do not understand what below
points to nor if those
means BUA or all four hex types.
FOR EXAMPLE IN ONE OF THE FOUR TYPE HEXES ARE AT A812 AND YOU ARE AT A 1111 THE HEX A712 IS A BLIND HEX
Any hex containing a crest line that is crossed by the LOS (other than a crest line in the hex occupied by the higher unit) also creates a blind hex in the adjacent hex behind it,
This would explain the blind hex of the hill
part of your answer.YOU ARE AT A1111 THE HEXES AT A808-A809-A907-A1008 ARE BLIND HEXES FROM CREST LINE 1 LEVEL HILL
unless the difference between the height of the two units is less than or equal to the distance between them.
This is the true problem for me. I agree that there is LOS for A1111-A910 under this condition, but I would also allow one for A1114-A910, which seems wrong from your answer. Is there a typo in the quoted rule?FIRST THE WOODS AT A1013 THAT MAKE THE HEX LEVEL 2 LIKE THE HILL YOU ARE AND IF THE WOOD DONT EXIST THE HEX WILL BE THE BLIND HEX FROM LEVEL 1 HILL
Blocking hexes and slope LOS: The following hexes block all slope LOS:
- A hex with a crest line that would create a blind hex that also contains other terrain that would create a blind hex (e.g., a hill hex with woods).
This I seem to understand as you agree with my example: no LOS for A1111-A110*YES BECOUSE A1110 BLOCK YOUR LOS
- Hill hexes at an equal or higher elevation than the higher unit.
This seems quite plain: no LOS for A303-A504 or A406-A408CORRECT
6.2.1.Line of sight along flat ground.
Does A510-A507 falls in this case? Or does along
means all hexes are at the same elevation?YOU HAVE LOS BECOUSE ALL LEVELS HAVE THE SAME ELEVATION
Sorry for all those questions. I really try to figure why some LOS are valid and some not.
Thanks for your patience!
