Rescue Simulation 4.6.10 Mapping bonus (MB)

Hello
I read Rescue Simulation 2023 rules.
RCJRescueSimulation2023Rules.pdf (Last updated: 2023-05-21)

so I have some questions.

4.6.10. Mapping bonus (MB).

Question - 1

4.6.10.c.i. Simply fill area 4 elements with zeros. This includes the border of area 4.

It says that area 4 is filled with “0 (zero)”, but “*” is set in the above figure.
The diagram does not match rule 4.6.10.c.i.
Which is correct?

Question - 2
In the diagram above, the victims of U are set in blue tiles.
The blue tile is the connection tile of Area 1 and Area 2, but is the AM (Area multipliers) of this U victim 1.00 (Area 1)? Or is it 1.25 (area 2)?

Qiestion - 3

2.4.1.5. Connection tiles between each area must have two sides surrounded by a wall, such that the tile has an unambiguous entrance and exit edge to the two areas.

The rules say “each area’s connecting tiles have 2 walls”, but the connecting tiles in the diagram above (there are 4 tiles blue/purple/red/green) don’t have 2 walls.
This diagram does not match rule 2.4.1.5.
which one is correct?

Question - 4

2.3.3. Area 4 will contain checkpoints immediately after the red and green tile entrances to the room.

According to the rules, Area 4 should have as many checkpoints as there are entrances and exits. Area 4 in the diagram above has two entrances (connecting tiles), but no checkpoints.
The diagram does not match rule 2.3.3.
Which is correct?

You are correct about a lot here. this sample was made quickly because time was of the essence.

1. there should be checkpoints in room 4 at the entrance and exit
2. there is a U on a blue tile when there shouldn’t be
3. the connection tiles should be surrounded by walls
4. Room 4 was made with ‘x’ rather than ‘0’ because it was visually more distinct. but the rules do say use 0 so that is what teams should do.

Thank you Jeremy for answering that.

He is a fellow who has assisted me on and off for clarifying the scoring by creating that grids diagram for visualizing how to fill the bits/bytes. He will assist me to fix up a few things and hope to improve upon this mask.

According to your answers, the diagram in rule 4.6.10.d is an incorrect diagram that does not match the rule.

Question-5
Any plans to correct the diagram for Rule 4.6.10.d?

Question-6
For Victims and hazmat signs,
rule 2.6.1 says “placed anywhere on walls”,
but they must not be placed on walls with “connection tiles” (e.g. red tiles, blue tiles). Correct?

I think this is compliant with the rules
