This. These seem to be worked out thoroughly - I'd suggest asking why something's there rather than trying to strike it out, @quozl .

Btw, I appreciate the thoroughness, gents. You're good gatekeepers and I know all thoughts are given in the right spirit of helpfulness. :up: That doesn't mean I'm going to go with all the notes, but I appreciate the thought behind all of them. :-)

2. I'm personally fine with someone choosing to put a figure into a passenger seat rather than a driver's seat. What if it's Mister Fantastic's turn and he wants Invisible Woman as his passenger and to drive himself, but he has to move her first? That should be something you can do.

Typical male ego. Bet he won't ask for directions either. :)

I didn't know you could drive porta-potties!

Part of the motivation for working on these is to carry most of them over for Enclosed Structure rules for something like the Porta-Potty DO.

Excuse me, I'm still laughing over here.

Okay, looking it over again with your comments, I'd just suggest two specifics:

- In OCCUPYING VEHICLES, before introducing a space for the driver, just have a short paragraph stating something like this: "All VDOs have spaces marked on their card, that represent the interior of the vehicle. Units can occupy and move between those spaces the same as if they were on a battlefield. These spaces have no terrain type or height."

- Same at the bottom under DESTROYING VEHICLES. Instead of "on top," go with something like "occupying spaces on top of the VDO." I'm not sure what the specifics wording is in our DO rules, if the top of a DO counts as a "space" or whatever, but I think it ought to be spelled out specifically.

Still think the clear sight thing is going to cause issues (particularly if we ever have assymetrical vehicles and all that, stuff with a vague definition of "windows" and all that). Intuitive is nice until intuition fails, and I don't think "I know it when I see it" is necessarily a good foundation to build on. But I'll trust the team on it.
