Tactical Operations - Advanced Rules
« on: 05 June 2020, 16:06:54 »
NOTE: This thread is for the first volume of the revised, two-volume edition of Tactical Operations.  We are no longer collecting errata for the original single-volume version.


This thread is for all issues and problems with Tactical Operations - Advanced Rules.

Product Link: https://store.catalystgamelabs.com/products/battletech-tactical-operations-advanced-rules

There is no compiled errata for this product at this time.

Please remember to follow the errata report template when reporting issues.  Thanks.



Developer-Level Errata:
In case of any contradiction, developer-level errata takes precedence over the current errata document.

Machine Guns (p. 100)
Under “Rapid-Fire Mode”, third paragraph, second and third sentences

Conventional infantry may not use Rapid Fire mode. Battle Armor may use this rule, and roll for each active trooper firing an MG separately.
Change to:
Infantry of any kind may not use Rapid Fire mode.

the brand new pdf

pg 2

Table of Contents lists the Advanced Ground Movement section starting on pg 18. it starts on pg 16 (it's a c/p issue from the combined volume)

fix: change the page number (if it's any consolation the bookmark links to the correct page)

VERSION: PDF, initial release
LOCATION: Page 9, Campaign Operations.
THE ERROR: "Campaign Operations (CO) is the rulebook you are holding in your hands and the foundational book to" -  This is Tactical Ops, not Campaign Ops
THE CORRECTION: "Campaign Operations (CO) is the foundational book to"...

VERSION: PDF, initial release

LOCATION: p180, Morale Tables

THE ERROR: Reference marks in column headings appear to be in the wrong column. (Have been transposed one column to the left.)

THE CORRECTION: "Experience level" should have no reference mark, "BattleMechs Morale Target" should have the asterisk, "Combat Vehicles Morale Target" should have the 'dagger', "Infantry Morale Target" should have the 'double dagger', and "Support Vehicles Morale Target" should have the 'section sign'. The 'double section sign' should only appear in the table body, rather than in the headings.
"That's Lieutenant Faceplant to you, Corporal!"

Things that I have learnt through clicking too fast on 'Move Done' on MegaMek: Double-check the CF of the building before jumping onto it, check artillery arrival times before standing in the neighbouring hex, and don't run across your own minefield.

Xotl: Much obliged, Alfaryn


Here are the page reference errors to TO: AR and TO: AUE I've found in the initial release of the TO: AR pdf. Plus a few other problems I've found while looking for page reference errors.
Note that:
1. this is a product of just one afternoon and evening of my work, and it is entirely possible that I've missed penty of errors,
2. I have not checked page references to books other than TO: AR and TO: AUE,
3. I have not checked the table of contents and the index.

p. 11 (Advanced Conventional Infantry Record Sheet)
Three problems: 

INCORRECT PAGE REFERENCE 1.: In the footnotes of Morale Table - "See Infernos and Cruise Missile Attack (p. 211)."
SHOULD BE: See Infernos and Cruise Missile Attack (p. 179, TO: AR).

INCORRECT PAGE REFERENCE 2.: In the footnotes of Morale Table - "Conventional Infantry with Armor (see p. 317)"
SHOULD BE: Conventional Infantry with Armor (see p. 129, TO: AUE)

INCORRECT PAGE REFERENCE 3.: Footnote of Recovering Nerve Table - "Only applies if Commanders (see p. 191) are in use."
SHOULD BE: Only applies if Commanders (see p. 159, TO: AR) are in use.

p. 29
INCORRECT PAGE REFERENCE: "p. 413" under Die Roll "8" of the Terrain Effects Table.
SHOULD BE: "pp. 41-43".

p. 32
INCORRECT PAGE REFERENCE: All page references in the "Prohibited Units" column of the bottom table point to page numbers too high by two.
SHOULD BE: Change "p. 42" to "p. 40" "p. 43" to "p. 41", "p. 49" to "p. 47".

p. 47
INCORRECT PAGE REFERENCE: Right column, under "River"" The reference "Torrent
terrain modification (see p. 48)"

p. 50
INCORRECT PAGE REFERENCE: In the first paragraph of the example text "Water Flow Diagram on p.53"
SHOULD BE: "Water Flow Diagram on p.51"

p. 55

SHOULD BE: "[...]page 61."

p. 56
INCORRECT PAGE REFERENCE: Both references to "p. 61" (under "Extreme Temperature:" paragraphs of Light Hail and Heavy Hail)
SHOULD BE: "p. 60."

p. 59
INCORRECT PAGE REFERENCE: Two page references under "Terrain/Construction Factor:" of the Strong Gale section are flipped.

Multiple problems with the Planetary Conditions Tables (including some not page reference-related):

Either restore it on p. 58, or cut it on the other pages I've mentioned (and put some other condition on pp. 28 and 67 to replace it).

INCORRECT PAGE REFERENCE 2.: Ice Storm (p. 60)
SHOULD BE: Ice Storm (p. 58)
