LOS question
« on: 01 July 2013, 16:07:53 »
Situation:  A tank pulls up behind a level 1 building.  On the other side of that building is a mech.  Can they see each other?  Does the building provide partial cover for the mech if they can see each other?  Or, at a basic level, can they see each other and shoot at each other, and if so, with what, if any, modifiers?
AS may be as much a representation of the Battletech universe as the original tabletop game is, but if you tell someone "I'm playing Battletech" chances are, if they know what that is, they're going to take you to mean the original tabletop game. - Steve Restless

No.  If you're immediately next to an elevation level equal to your height you cannot see or be seen over it.

Now I'm imagining a Berserker peering through the building to look at a Myrmidon.
