(Answered) Conflicting Mapsheet Levels
« on: 24 February 2020, 02:57:12 »
In Total Warfare ("Corrected Third Printing. Second Printing by Catalyst Games Labs.") under "Mapsheets", "Level" and under "Sublevels" it says "The level of a hex is considered equal to the highest level present in it." (p. 31) and "If any part of a hex contains a sublevel, the entire hex is considered to be the deepest sublevel marked in it. The exception to this occurs if the hex also contains a level greater than 0, in which case the level of the hill takes precedence as described above." (p. 32)

I'd summarize this as "level farthest from 0 wins, but hills beat sublevels".

However, under "Movement Basics", "Level Change", "Conflicting Terrain and Levels" it says "In such cases [conflicting levels or terrain], if any part of a hex contains Level 0 terrain, the entire hex is considered at Level 0. If no part of the hex contains Level 0 terrain, the entire hex is considered at the level closest to 0." (p. 49)

This seems to say the opposite (while being silent on equally-far-from-0 level vs sublevel conflicts).

Which is correct, or are they talking about different things? Would an errata report be appropriate?

The text on page 32 is correct.  No need to submit an errata report: I've noted it.  Thanks!
