Title: (Answered) Urban Combat Building Weight Capacity
Post by: MyndkryM on 01 June 2022, 17:49:07
In the 4th Ed. AS:CE Urban Combat Section (pg. 72), the example provided in the Building Weight Capacity rules indicates the each level of that medium building has a weight limit of 2. The AS Buildings Table on page 73 has it listed as Weight Capacity (per 1" height).

I had someone say that a 2" medium building could support a size 4 'mech on the roof, and just looking at the Table I'd agree. Am I reading the rule and example wrong?

The weight limits cannot be combined.  They are completely separate for each level.  Each level can have its weight level total.
You can have a medium mech on each level.  2 is not greater than the weight limit in any level. Each level is calculated independently, so no level has exceeded its weight limit.
You cannot have a heavy mech on the building at all. 3 is greater than the weight limit in any level.
You can’t have two medium mechs on the roof (the same level). 4 is greater than the weight limit of the level.

Ah....cool. Thank you.

Would this be something worth an errata to the wording on the Table? Change (per 1" height) to (each 1" level)?
