This is not what I stated, mate. This is what I stated:
In my case, the request for some sort of elevation indication has nothing to do with command and control, which I generally don't have problems with ...
IMO there's nothing wrong with the radio comms rule. It'a a bit artificial but it achieves the very realistic goal of making players think about where they're going to locate themselves during the battle.
But I should be able to immediately see, just by looking at the map, the difference between a 10 metre-high bump which probably won't affect command-and-control too much, and a 30 metre-high hill which will definitely block comms.
At the moment, it's not possible to do this with the current graphical representation of the fractal terrain.
