Hey all--
Looking at a standard map panel, suppose ships in hexes 34 and 45 wish to exchange fire. Hex 35 is an asteroid hex, hex 44 is not. Does hex 35 affect direct fire weapons as described in 6B3? or is there a clear line of sight?

No, hex 35 does not effect line-of-sight.

The procedure for LOS is defined as:
...draw a line from teh center of the firers hex to the center of the target hex (note: center of hex, not location of weapon mount on mini). If the line passes through an asteroid hex (or more than one), the appropriate modifiers apply.

I can't find the exact reference, but in the situation you describe, the LOS runs along the edge of an asteroid hex and along the edge of a clear hex; ergo, no effect.

That's correct.

Sorry for the delay. Honestly, it kinda got lost in the shuffle for me.

There are no stupid questions, except the unasked ones. The delay in answering your question was our fault. Embarassed

And yes, burn the heretic at the stake and then bury his ashes in lime. Twisted Evil

To paraphrase George Carlin, any group that takes itself too seriously is fair game for ridicule Smile He also said anyone driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone driving faster than you is a maniac Laughing See? Now he's dead. I can appreciate a little good-natured ribbing, but at my house FC is a nice distraction from chemo and insulin Razz And if you want to burn me, you have to catch me first Wink
