    Fog of War recreatable?

    Fog of War was basically the maps hiding unexplored bits of the game.
    It would probably mean some rough work to get a plugin like that made.
    I would most likely enable it for just the one new character.
    It would still be great fun because I miss the feature very much.

    The biggest problem with trying to implement fog of war via Lua is the inability to programmatically track player location via Lua. The only way we have to obtain location info is by having the player click a quickslot everytime we want to refresh the position. That isn't really a practical solution for fog of war since you would want the fog of war to automatically clear as you go through an area, not depending on you clicking a control every few seconds to clear it. So the only practical way to get fog of war back would be for SSG to re-implement it, but given how buggy it was back then and how small the development team is now, I don't see that happening

    Too true, haha! Not worth the while.
    It was a nice feature for us alt-o-holics.
    Alas, many conveniences gained over the years and some gone.
    All good - thank you and thank you for your dedication
