Solo'ing here so just to confirm on the Spotting Ranges Table, the left-most column "LEVEL" and the unit size (V,L,S) sets the base spotting range which is then modified by the spotting target's terrain?
Using the Spotting (OR) chart, I have SEASONED V unit on LEVEL 1 HILL in the CLEAR attempting to spot a V unit in Light Cover at a Range of 4. Does the +1 LEVEL start the range at 30, which is then reduced to 20 for the Light Cover. As Range 4 is less than half, I roll d100 hoping for a =<70?
Take the V unit in Light Cover at Range 4. The spotting range is 10 hexes. This is calculated as follows:
Base Spotting Range for V units = 20 hexes. Light Cover = -1 Level (levels don't have anything to do with height)
As 4 hexes is less than 1/2 of maximun spotting range of 10, we will use the first value of the Optional Spotting Table.
So, you have given the right anwer, but with wrong calculations: you have to roll 70 or less to spot your target.
If there were 2 units attempting to spot the target, you would add a +10 to the roll needed, so you would need an 80 or less to spot. If there were 4 units attempting to spot, the target would be automatically spotted (+30).
