A couple of rules changes and queries - a) Should there be a section in rules to note identified issues as a whole? I cant find one. b) The following are in contradiction. 53.11, 53.22. I imagine the rules update has a typo in it and should read First line trucks carrying supplies use their infantry-load CPA (20 or 25) and may exceed their CPA as their parent unit does (See 6.1).
C) Why can 2/3rd line trucks not access the stores and ammo Dropped on Ground in minidumps? As a logician I want this to get my unused supplies back to a dump. Not sure why a special rule for this type of dump only? Will lead to proliferation of counters when counters are used. Suggest completely drop "whilst 2nd/3rd..... such dumps" which will simplify rules, standardise rules, be more practical and reduce number of counters.
Rule [54.18] As per 24.9, up to 50 stores and 50 ammunition points may be deposited (unloaded) in hexes that do not contain a standard supply dump (maximum of one per hex). Whilst 2nd/3rd line trucks may contribute to (or initiate) such "mini dumps", only 1st line trucks and units may load up from such dumps. Many supply dumps are represented by the small marker flags with which Cyberboard has been augmented.
Nice one Colin, thanks. Illustrates the difficulty of making piecemeal fixes, without reference to the whole rules (which I haven't had the luxury of reading through sequentially for some time. One becomes so used to omissions that it comes as a surprise when an issue has been addressed elsewhere. I have amended 53.11 and referenced 53.22.
IIRC, the idea was to reflect the status of such supplies as being distinctively different to those in constructed dumps. The restriction to just two supply types in the OR seems consistent with the concept of supplies deployed for use in the vicinity of the front line. In reality, they would be likely not all in the same place.
That said, a change would not be unreasonable as the issue doesn't appear critical to the game or historical accuracy, so we can go with whatever everyone thinks. Gentlemen
All the issues are identified: Blue (official errata); Pink (amendments) and highlighted yellow (changes since last version release). It's easy to view each in sequence, using Word's built-in search facility.
