Default Shooting a Rope Houserule

By this rule, I would be at -9 to shoot a 2" think rope, and -7 to shoot a 2" diameter sphere. As missing the rope by a little bit in two directions would actually still hit the rope, the rope should be easier to hit than the sphere, not -2 more difficult.

Proposed houserule: For objects much smaller in two of three dimensions (e.g., a rope 100 yards long but just 2” thick), use the smallest dimension instead of the largest when shooting it with a missile or stabbing it with a thrusting attack, then add +3.
