There may be a lot of "problems" in the Files section which were solved by 1.1. It needs to be cleaned up.

Note the rule in the current draft:

Pg8
A tactical move by a single element can be in any directions, even diagonal or oblique, can pass through any gap as wide as the edge that first enters it or through 1 element corner, and can end facing in any direction.

This rule renders the statement in Part 2 of the YGroup Files titled "elmove.jpeg incorrect.

You can slide sideways until it is possible to pass thru only 1 corner, measuring the slide plus the diagonal thru 1 corner.


BUT THERE IS A BIGGER ISSUE HERE WITH CLARITY:

BUT Does this not also have to meet the requirements for Interpenetration on Pg 9? Seems like the "simplification" illustrated is not supported by the plain wording of the rules.

In fact, there ought not to be a difference between the term "passing thru" as used above and the same phrase as used in the Interpenetration section.

The allowance to pass thru a corner seems to be rendered moot by the strict requirements of the Interpenetration section.

Pg9
INTERPENETRATING FRIENDLY TROOPS
If making a tactical move, or fleeing after completing recoil,

mounted troops can always pass through Psiloi and Psiloi pass through any friends, but in both cases only if

(a) starting at least partly in front to end directly behind
or
(b) starting directly behind to end directly in front

and (c) there is sufficient clear space beyond and enough move to occupy it.


Perhaps Phil intended that cases (a) and (b) are EXEMPTIONS to the requirement that only 1 corner can be Passed Thru ??? But that is not the way it is written.

The title could be changed to:
PASSING THROUGH MORE THAN ONE CORNER OF A FRIENDLY ELEMENT: SPECIAL CASES

The phase "pass thru" needs to be removed from the Interpenetration section and the word "interpenetrate" be used instead.

That would help clarify that Interpenetration is a special case of Passing Through.
